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

The Scilly Isles, off Land’s End can easily be reached by helicopter from Penzance or by ferry. The main island of Tresco is known for its tropical Abbey Gardens, built on terraces around the ruins of the former Abbey. The scenic traffic-free island is a paradise for hikers, birds spotters and nature-lovers.

Beaches

Cornwall is known for its beautiful beaches and there are many to choose from in the Whitecross area. Penzance has a fine long sandy beach. On the wilder Atlantic coast, St Ives has three beaches including sheltered Carbis Bay. The beaches around Newquay and Perranporth are known for their fine surfing conditions and equipment is available on the beach to hire.

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.

Beautiful!!

5 of 5
Perfect Location, Perfect Views and the most Pefect Apartment! Loved every second of our break here, the apartment is spot on and has everything you need, it’s finished to an amazing standard and the views are second to none. We come to St Ives every year, so have stayed in a few different places and the others simply do not compare! We CANNOT wait to come back again! Thank you!!!

Cosy and comfy

5 of 5
Beautifully decorated with tasteful and thoughtful features. A great location so central although a little noisy at night when revellers make themselves known. Loved the wood burner. Wood had been left with kindling and lighters which was so helpful. We restocked from a supplier across the road. Lovely welcome pack too. One minor point is the second bedroom bed is a little rickety and perhaps in need of attention.
