Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Whitecross, Cornwall your home away from home

The tiny hamlet of Whitecross is ideally located in the centre of the West Cornish peninsula. It is just 4 miles from Penzance on the south coast and 6 miles from St Ives on the north coast, making it easy to explore both lovely areas.

West Cornwall is ideal for walking, especially along the South West coastal path. There are a host of National Trust properties in this beautiful area and miles of winding country lanes to explore, all little more than a single car’s width. The highlight of the area is St Michael’s Mount, a historic stately home/castle built on a rock in Marazion Bay. Land’s End is also just a short drive from your holiday home in Whitecross, with its landmark signpost.

This sizeable town has plenty of shops, pubs and old houses along its main street. The promenade leads along the sweeping bay to the Jubilee Swimming Pool, one of the oldest Art Deco pools in the country. The town looks across to the National Trust property of St Michael’s Mount with its grand castle/stately home and rock gardens.

St Ives

Sprawling up the hillside above its two main beaches, St Ives is a quaint Cornish village with tiny fishermen’s cottages, shops and art galleries lining the narrow streets. The town has been attracting artists for decades and the Tate Gallery opened here in 1993. The purpose-built building is as interesting as the artworks themselves, with spectacular sea views from the café terrace.

What you see on the website is what you get - a cosy, comfortable, 60's themed apartment with outstanding views. Despite mixed weather we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our welcome pack from Jo was greatly appreciated

Fantastic week in a beautiful Porthleven cottage

5 of 5
The cottage has absolutely everything you could need! It is fully equipped from top to bottom even down to some food and all linen! Beautifully laid out and really comfortable. Only 5 minutes walk to the harbour. Everything in the cottage was high quality with really good WiFi and audio/visual although we didn't get around to using it. For a location perspective you are a very short drive from some of the most spectacular coastal walks in the UK. Can't fault this property...fantastic!!
