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.

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.

                                                              What a fabulous property

                                                              What a beautiful property, newly renovated with all the home from home comforts you are looking for on a self catering holiday. Super comfortable bed in a huge bedroom where you can sit and look out over the countryside. Bathroom only has a shower but what a great one, lashings of hot water and fluffy towels. Kitchen well equipped with a very welcome welcome pack of goodies. The living area has a huge sofa to crash out on at the end of a day on the beach or sightseeing or to just curl up on and relax. Easily accessible for all this part of Cornwall has to offer. Wonderful and very welcoming hosts and great customer service, including not hiking the price up during the summer holidays and penalising families with school age children.Not suitable for small children or less mobile folk due to changes in level both inside and outside the property. Would highly recommend booking here and plan to do so again.

                                                              One of our best holidays!

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We had a great week's stay at The Shire. The interior is gorgeously decorated and we had everything we needed in the drawers with even spare spices, flour etc should we need it. We also appreciated the extra facilities such as the large shoe box outside the front door - ideal for muddy boots! The corner chalet plot was ideally placed so my sons could walk our dog straight away in the woods and it felt quite private. Lots of rabbits bouncing around and trees to look out on made it feel very restful. We had the sun on the patio most of the day too, not that we stayed there much to enjoy it. I would say that 2 adults and 2 children of 12 and 10 were definitely 'cosy' but there was plenty of space to sit down and the coat hangers on the doors were very useful! The location is ideal, and we visited lots of different beaches with our dog. Our favourite was Porth Kidney. We also drove to Lelant station, just down the road, parked and walked to St Ives, then caught the train home. The site facilities were okay, and the shop assistant very helpful and friendly. A really lovely stay, thank you, and we have said we will return and discover other beaches.

                                                              Excellent accommodation and everything you could need is supplied for you - even a pint of milk for a cuppa when you arrive. Great location for exploring the west of Cornwall and you are only 20 minutes from St Ives or Penzance. There are a few walks in the local area to walk the dog straight from the cottage.
