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.

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

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 !!!

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.

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.
