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, Bluetooth speaker and bi-folding 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 fridge/freezer and washing machine located in the shed outside along with a charcoal BBQ . 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.

Beautiful location, views to die for. Unfortunately it wasn't ideal for getting our daughter, who has special needs, up the hill each morning. But that was our fault, we were warned when booking the holiday that the access was difficult. You need to be fit and if not by the end of your holiday you will be. Well worth the effort, absolutely loved itRead more. The owners are very lucky to own such a beautifully piece of Cornwall. Hide

Brilliant location. Quiet part of Cornwall with all the lovely scenery. Could happily sit outside at 10 degrees as the veranda has the sun all day. The walk to the car is steep. We got shopping delivered which worked very well.

Stunning location Great place to totally chill out You have to park at the top of the hill and walk down to the property but thats part of the reason this place is a stunning location and so wow Not ideal for young children due to the cliff top position

Reviewed by Joshua, 2nd March 2019

The place is brilliant, excellent views and amazing location. Just a steep hill which makes it a tiny bit difficult for the more unfit people but it is worth it 100%. The wine and cookies and note on the board was such a nice touch and just makes you feel welcome. I will definitely be staying again in the future.

A perfect chalet. Absolutely well placed for outstanding views and totally well kitted out. We were so cosy and everything was provided to guarantee a perfectly relaxing stay. Thank you so much for having us.

We had a lot of stuff in the car and it was quite an effort to walk it all down to the cottage. No way to drive down to the cottage with a normal car. The cottage is lovely and well kept. The extra refrigerator in the shed is very handy. We made use a lot of the open fire, plenty of wood available. We had a great time in idleour. Great views and reRead moreally relaxing. Stunning sunsets and it is fun to watch the sea coming and going. Hide

We rented 'Idleour' last week and totally loved the position and amazing coastal views that it provided. It was clean and well thought out with great little touches. The log burner was in constant use!! We can really recommend this place to anyone thinking of booking and we will be booking for the summer to take advantage of the decked area!!!

This is our third year at this property and it's just as lovely as the first time. The photos are accurate and not exaggerated and everything you need is there. The view is beautiful and we will hopefully be booking again for next year.

This was an excellent experience. The chalet and sea views were fantastic. It was a very good place to relax, unwind and enjoy listening to the waves, sea breeze and seagulls. The chalet was perfect, right on the edge of the cliff. It was light and airy with windows in all angles giving amazing sea views . I would definitely make a return visit andRead more recommend to others. Hide

Reviewed by Linda, 1st September 2018

We really enjoyed our at Idleour. However we feel that it should be made more clear that there is no parking on the private road where the chalet is located. The description does say you cant park on the private road but goes on to say you can drive down to unload. If you have never been before it gives the impression that unloading near the properRead morety, though not parking is permitted. It is quite onerous, unloading and then re loading vehicles, on a very steep hill and from a distance. Hide

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 !!!
