Show Availability

The Old Tea Hut is a cosy cliffside retreat on a footpath to the beach with stunning views over Whitsand Bay and Rame Head. The accommodation has 3 double bedrooms, plus a sofa bed and can sleep 6-8 people. It is a great spot for surfers and swimmers (with a life guard in the Summer months), walkers and birdwatchers, and a perfect base to explore the hidden charms of the Rame Peninsula, or simply relax and enjoy the view.

Freathy Tea Hut was first built in the 1920s and was the hub of the local community for many years. After a spell as a private house it recently underwent refurbishment but retains much of its character and charm including an open fire and a pretty South West facing garden. There is a sitting room with fireplace, conservatory, spacious kitchen, dining room and a newly fitted shower room with underfloor heating. A washing machine in an outhouse can be used by guests. Moderate use of WiFi and telephone are included.

The cliffs are dotted with an eclectic mixture of picturesque holiday chalets and shacks, many of which have been owned by the same families for years. The pretty villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are a couple of miles away. The nearby village of Millbrook has good local shops and there is a pedestrian ferry from Cremyll to the historic Stonehouse area of Plymouth. A fabulous restaurant and a cafe can be found a short walk along the cliff.

Well behaved dogs accepted.
