  • "Whileaway Cottage is in a delightful spot with beautiful views."

    Unfortunately we didn't see any of the famous sunsets as we had a very wet week there. The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortably and tastefully furnished and equipped. Deb and Bob, the owners were very helpful, kind and welcoming. We can recommend the cottage for a quiet, peaceful holiday.

    The cottage was everything we could have wished for. It was spacious and immaculately presented. The location was perfect, so quiet and peaceful with views across open fields as far as the eye could see. Wonderful sunsets to enjoy as well as the birdsong. Thank you so much Deb and Bob for allowing us to enjoy this cottage and make memories that will live with us forever

    The cottage was immaculate throughout with everything required for a lovely stay. Welcome hamper was very generous and extremely welcome after our journey down. Owners were simply wonderful; friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and places to visit. Nothing was too much trouble. Onsite parking was a great help and the views and sunsets were spectacular! Would and have already recommended it! Only downside was having to leave....

  • "Cottage was easy to find, great quiet location."

    Sunset to die for. Accommodation was well equipped and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our week at Whileaway Cottage, lovely and quiet, deep in the Cornwall countryside yet close enough to the beach with a 10 minute trip in the car. We would definitely book again.

    An excellent property Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, ideal situation and very comfortable The owners were friendly but not too familiar and provided anything we asked for immediately Would definitely recommend it to friends and will stay there again when next in Cornwall

  • "This is a lovely holiday cottage, so peaceful and surrounded by beautiful countryside."

    We really enjoyed sitting on the patio and listening to/watching the birds in the meadow. We do have some suggestions that would help improve the experience for others. Although there was no tea pot there was a cafetiere. There were no lids for any of the saucepans, so we had to use a baking tray to cover the pan to stop the heat escaping. These are small issues and won't be a problem for many people.

  • "Whileaway cottage was very well presented and with excellent views."

    It offered a peaceful retreat for a couple wishing to get away from it all. The property is, however, gated and this did make entering and leaving the property a little difficult for my wife who has mobility difficulties. Generally, a very enjoyable holiday.

The property

Whileaway Cottage is a single-storey barn conversion located in stunning South East Cornwall's rolling countryside.

This charming Cornish house is perfect for a relaxing getaway, whether you're travelling as a family, a couple, or even just by yourself, thanks to its convenient position near the countryside yet close proximity to town.

Whileaway Cottage is conveniently located between Looe, a lively harbour town, and Polperro, a fishing village with eccentric alleys lined with quaint fisherman's cottages and a variety of shops, bars, cafes, and tearooms, as well as some of the best restaurants Cornwall has to offer.

You can also find lovely coves and beaches that are just begging to be explored.

As soon as you reach the cottage, you can pull into the private off-road parking area.

Upon entering the home, you will find a beautiful open-concept space with a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, which flows into a spacious living room with wide picture windows and French doors that open up to picturesque views of the surrounding countryside.

You may relax in the bedroom's large king-sized bed, which is funrished with an en-suite shower room featuring sleek contemporary fixtures.

The views from the cottage windows create a soothing atmosphere, perfect for unwinding with a glass of wine after a day spent discovering everything that Cornwall has to offer.

The National Trust car park and the scenic Coastal Path can be reached in 2 miles, at Lansallos.

You may also spend the day wandering the cobbled alleyways of Fowey, the town most associated with Daphne du Maurier which lies nearby via the Bodinnick Ferry and is located in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Beauty.

Looe Adventure Fit SouthWest is the place to go if you want to spend the day on the water kayaking or paddleboarding; for those seeking leisurely strolls, there are many beautiful gardens and historical stately homes to explore, such as Pencarrow, a gorgeous Georgian House surrounded by a lake and scenic woodland; Saltram House and gardens; and Antony House, where Alice in Wonderland was filmed.

Trebah Gardens, located a short distance away, is home to beautiful exotic gardens on the Helford River and a secluded cove.

Choose Whileaway cottage as the base for your next Cornish adventure.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
