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.

Comfy, Cosy Cornish Cottage

5 of 5
Simple, just did not want to go back to reality. The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and right in the middle of St Ives itself with access to all that St Ives offer. I hope to return one day soon...........

Martha was extremely welcoming and helpful. Cottage well equipped. Warm and comfortable with excellent beds. Very good to have parking. Convenient for the beach and pub. Pub first class for food, drink and atmosphere. We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage for a holiday in south east Cornwall.
