Things to do in Whitsand Bay

Visitors can enjoy an action packed holiday, visits to Looe and Plymouth, lots of quaint fishing villages, or a traditional British holiday on the lovely beaches.

-Rame Head is an historic site set on the steep cliffs overlooking the sea. There is evidence of buildings from as far back as the Iron Age and Bronze Age. See barrows, remnants of castles, dwellings and other fascinating sites. There is also a chapel that was dedicated to St Michael the Archangel dating from the medieval period.

-The Monkey Sanctuary is a fantastic conservatory, being the home to many a rescued primate from the horrors of the animal trade industry and abuse. It is an educational facility popular with visitors in Whitsand Bay holiday homes who enjoy the chance to get involved and see first-hand how a working sanctuary operates.

-The James Egan Layne Wreck is a popular site with scuba diving enthusiasts. Sinking in 1945, it’s a massive 7000 ton wreck that was hit by a German torpedo, and then towed to salvage most of its cargo. It sunk to a depth of almost 80m, making it one of the most popular wrecks to explore.

-Cawsand Bay is an historic fishing village on the Rame Peninsula. Once famous for a successful smuggling ring, it is now just a place of stunning natural beauty and a popular tourist attraction. It’s a magical little town, with lots of walks and little winding streets sweeping over 800 acres along the coast.

-Port Winkle Walks are a favourite way to see the breathtaking coastline at its most spectacular. The walk is approximately 4.5 miles and starts at Port Winkle, passing the Whitsand Battery and Freathy and ending up at the Whitsand Bay Holiday Park. Chill out at the Cliff Top Café for some cool refreshments after the two and a half hour walk.

We have had three enjoyable stays at the cottage during the winter months and will certainly return in the future. The booking process is simple and straight forward by phone or online with a fast response from the Owner. Old Hundredth is well presented and always very clean, warm and cosy. It's located in a lovely village with an excellent pub serving good meals on one side and an ancient and popular church on the other side. The cottage is near to local beaches and walks, and the shops are not too far away by car.

The property was in a quiet residential street. It had a train that ran behind the back garden.

5 of 5
The property was 100% spotless. It was well equipped with everything you could need for a stay. It didn't have wifi. But it did have a DVD player at the side of the TV. Overall it was value for money and I'd definitely recommend it & return to the property.

wonderful, warm and welcoming.

before we'd even stepped inside, we were already breath taken by the wonderful view, straight out across the sea. the actual cottage itself is superbly equipped and the added touch of scones, cream, and jam was such a welcome touch after a long drive! the big window facing the sea is perfect for watching the world go by, (hours were spent doing this!) and its just as nice when its stormy out as its so warm and cozy indoors. the dual control electric blanket on the master bed was perfect for those who sleep at different temps! (the bunkbeds are perfect for a cheeky snooze as well for the smaller amongst us!). The glass edged garden gave enough shelter to sit out and enjoy a glass (or 2) of wine, even in midwinter when we visited! if you'd like to see Cornwall, its perfectly placed, we went down to St Ives right down south in only around an hour and a half, perfect for a day out, and of course the Eden project, Looe, Polperro and many other places are all just a short drive away. Overall, the perfect place to escape the world, sit, read, explore, relax, re-group. We shall be going back!
