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 scenic traffic-free island is a paradise for hikers, birds spotters and nature-lovers.

Beaches

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.

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.

Photos don't do it justice really, I was very happy with it! Owners were very accommodating and visited us once to check we were happy. Wifi was in the Manor House on site, it was an ok speed for public wifi. Pool was suitable for a dip! We visited all the local places and beaches and made some great memories! Wonderful stay.

It was easy to find and in a great location. Everything we could need was supplied in the cottage. Very clean and tidy as as well plus a great shower. I would go back here in a heartbeat.
