Eddystone Cottages

Millbrook 1.5 miles. A very special holiday location! Nestling at the foot of the steep 250ft Tregonhawke Cliff, Eddystone Cottages are accessed on foot via a steep cliff path and steps after leaving the car at the clifftop. The climb down is well worth it, as these apartments stand just 12 feet above the sandy beach at Tregonhawke, part of Whitsand Bay itself, which stretches to about 5 miles of sand and rocks. This one-time stone beach cafe has been converted into three apartments (one occupied by the owner) providing charming, comfortable accommodation, each with magnificent views of the sea and access to the adjacent cafe/surf school/surf shop offering watersports. From the beach (lifeguarded between May and September) at Tregonhawke, there is swimming, wind and kite surfing, kayaking and fishing so that guests can make the most of their holiday, while an indoor heated swimming pool, cafe and bar can be found at Whitsand Bay Holiday Park, at the top of the cliff. Relax with tea on arrival at the seasonal beach cafe next door. With lovely walks close by, and the coastal villages of Kingsand, Cawsand and St John, and towns of Looe, Polperro and Plymouth a short drive, there is no shortage of things to do from these lovely apartments.

About the location


Whitsand Bay 1 mile; Plymouth 8 miles.

Set in a bowl of hills at the head of a tidal creek that leads to the Hamoaze, opposite the great naval city of Plymouth, Millbrook is located on the Rame Peninsula, "Cornwall's Forgotten Corner". Bounded by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea, the area is deeply rural and designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a good range of shops and pubs, while close by are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you to Plymouth. Along the southern edges of the peninsula are miles of beautiful walks with glorious views of Rame Head. Just a mile south of Millbrook lies Whitsand Bay with its miles of uncrowded sandy RNLI patrolled beach and dramatic cliffs. A superb base for discovering the wild side of Cornwall.
