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.

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.

Superb balcony, wonderful view, great location and careful attention from the owners.

4 of 5
The balcony and its superb view make 'Island Watch' a great holiday venue. The living area on the lower floor is small but just adequate for two. Very squeaky floor boards through the kitchen /lounge area caused us concern for the accommodation below, but the folk staying there were not bothered. The bath room and toilet is on an even smaller scale, but designed well and was fine. We were comfortable and we enjoyed being there. The bedroom on the higher level was more difficult. The information about the venue is clear that the bedroom is an attic/loft room and that was fine, but we found that the only place to stand upright was at the top of the stairs. I am not disabled but at 73 I found that to mount a step of between 18 and 20 inches to reach the drawers and hanging space for clothes was too difficult ..... and not even a rail or handle to grip for assistance! I think it needs a little re- planning. The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and the location is excellent.

April Cottage is well equipped, clean, bright, tastefully furnished, with the most splendid view.

5 of 5
We stayed 7 nights at April Cottage at the end of June/early July 2017. I wanted somewhere comfortable, with wonderful views, within easy reach of Falmouth, so that we could wander in on foot for groceries and for options to eat out. April Cottage ticked all the boxes. We were not disappointed. The cottage is well equipped, clean, bright, and tastefully furnished...with the most splendid view.
