With stunning views and beautiful fixtures, you can live in luxury during your stay at this breath-taking property situated on the cliff tops above Whitsand Bay.

Walking down the scenic cliff-top path to access this property, its grandeur and phenomenal location soon become apparent. Far-reaching views across the ocean create a glorious panorama with beauty from every angle. Its location above the beach of Whitsand mean it’s in a prime spot for a day on the sand, whether that be soaking up the sun or something a little more adventurous. The property is a short drive away from Plymouth to the east, with plenty of restaurants, shops and leisure facilities to explore, or travel west to the picturesque town of Looe. Guests also have access to the swimming pool located at Whitsand Bay Holiday Park, at the top of the cliff, for a small additional charge.

Entering from the rear of the property, there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with twin beds, both of which are immaculately finished. There is then a shower room with WC. The focal point of this property comes from the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with its awe-inspiring views and luxurious finishing touches. The lounge area has a comfortable sofa and beautiful chairs, a wood burner, a Smart TV/DVD/Blu-Ray, iPod dock and French doors out onto the decking and garden area. The dining table seats four, and is situated towards the centre of the room, making the most of the views out to sea whilst you eat your meal. The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave and dishwasher.

The partially enclosed decking outside is a truly beautiful area from which to make the most of the scenery. It has plenty of seating, and there are also sunbeds to soak up the rays, as well as an outdoor shower for washing off the sand once you’ve returned up the path from a day on the beach. Also outside you will find a separate freezer located in the shed outside. Young children must be supervised due to the location of the property and the structure of the garden. There is roadside parking at the top of the cliff, however no direct vehicle access outside – the property is accessed on foot from the cliff path.

Incredible one million dollar view. The steep walk down to the cottage is really a good exercise and further on to the beach too; but a barbecue dinner on the terrace by sunset is amazing !!!

We had a fantastic stay at Idleour. The path to the road & to the beach was a little steep and hard going in places but well worth it. The property its self was extremely clean and well equipped. Wine, biscuits, flowers, a note on the chalk board left for us & the decoration makes it very inviting and gives it a friendly home from home feel.

The cottage was really well furnished and located in a beautiful setting. Unfortunately the weather wasnt great when we stayed and it is apparent that I need to really work on my fitness as trekking up the steep hill everyday to get to your car or explore the area was a bit of a thought. Otherwise it was a nice peaceful break.

We absolutely loved our stay at Idleour! There are no words to describe just how breathtaking the view is! Sparkling waters surround the property, as far as the eye can see, you really do feel as if you're shut off from the rest of the world. The property itself was stunning; spotless and comfortable with everything you could possibly need - the prRead moreosecco, cookies and stack of logs for the wood burner were a pleasant surprise too!

Commanding views of the coast. An easy walk down to the beach. Even in winter it is beautiful.

Fantastic place to stay. Location is stunning no matter what the weather. We arrived in a storm and it was beautiful to look out on the sea.

Lovely spot to stay great views. Very clean when we arrived with a nice bottle of wine, which was most welcome after the walk down with luggage. But well worth the walk .

This is the second time we have been to this cottage and it really lived up to our memories of it. Everything you need is there and the view is just amazing. There's a nice greeting, milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine waiting for you when you arrive (even the fire was laid and just needed a match).

Location and views stunning. Wonderful to wake up to sea and beach every morning , bit of a steep walk down and back up from the beach, but definitely worth it. Outside furniture a definite bonas . Would be just perfect in the summer months.

Excellent location and a wonderful chalet with sea views. Restful holiday. Would recommend to anyone who wishes a break from it all but would point out that a level of fitness is required to access the property. Parking was very busy at the cliff top, managed to get a space but timing is everything! Would book again and pack light!
