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.

Things to Do in Whitecross, Cornwall Take a Trip to the Scillies

Places to Visit Near Whitecross, Cornwall

Penzance

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.

Holywell Bay Fun Park

This family fun park advertises itself as the place to ride, slide, splash and have fun. With go-karts, battle boats and Merlin’s Maze, it is the perfect place for family fun whatever the weather.

Everything in the appartment that you need to enjoy a week by the sea without travelling out if you don't want to. Great location to enjoy the beach/ surfing and lovely coastal walks. Thank you Phil.

Cottage clean and well equipped/presented. Dog room ideal and a great space for our 2 large dogs. Owner relaxed, welcoming and friendly with expert local knowledge. We had a wonderful holiday over the Easter period (04/2017) and will be booking again. We don't have anything negative to say...

The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for your perfect holiday. Great location just a short stroll from the harbour. A very Cornish welcome with scones clotted cream and jam ( and a bottle of wine !) a perfect start to the perfect holiday. Lots of lovely places to eat, Rick steins definitely worth a visit and also the harbour inn does a proper burger! There Are lots of other restaurants too. A great vibe in Porthleven and a great place to base yourselves for some amazing coastal walks and hidden coves along the lizard peninsula. Thanks Phil, we had a lovely stay at the blue door.
