The Directory of Unusual Places to Stay

Rockwater Cabin

Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, England

A charming clifftop cabin boasting jaw-dropping, uninterrupted sea views over Whitsand Bay, perfect for a romantic getaway.

Set off the beaten track with absolutely breath-taking, uninterrupted sea views, Rockwater Cabin is just idyllic and offers a romantic break for 2 or a family holiday for 3 plus a baby. If the gorgeous vista wasn’t enough, it’s truly delightful inside too, lovingly restored and furnished with an eclectic mix of styles. The small but perfectly formed galley-kitchen has all you could need to rustle up a scrummy supper – including a gas cooker, combination microwave and fridge, and there’s a sweet dining-area too.

The delightful sitting-area is the perfect place to cuddle up of an evening, with a coal-effect gas stove to keep you cosy and, of course, the stunning views to gaze at. There are two beautiful bedrooms (a double and a single), the master with the bonus of the wonderful view.  A track leads from the coastal road down to this charming cabin, and there are various paths (steep - please take care) that lead from the cliffs down to the three miles of sandy beach and coastal path, perfect for exploring without having to get back into the car.

If you do fancy jumping in the car to explore a little further afield, the surrounding area – often referred to as the ‘forgotten part of Cornwall’ – is unspoilt and intriguing, with lots to see and do. The pretty villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are well worth a visit, with their cobbled streets, coloured cottages and numerous pubs, as are the working fishing town of Looe and the magnificent estates of Mount Edgcumbe, Port Eliot and Anthony. 

There is a minimum 3 night stay with availability all year round. Nightly price ranges from £100 - £292 per night. 2 night stays are taken at the owner's discretion. Dogs welcome.
