Inspire your senses with Cornish sea views that seem to stretch out forever, from an elevated, dog-friendly couples’ retreat with a private hot tub and direct access to the South West Coast Path.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 1 night

Sleeping up to two guests and their two well-behaved dogs, Clifftop Nest is the perfect escape for a romantic couple… who love idyllic seascapes and Cornish coastal walks in equal measure!

Constructed in the 1950s, there’s a vintage-penthouse feel to the clifftop retreat, which just happens to sit within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that overlooks the sea.

Sit back with a mug of coffee (or a glass of bubbles, if the mood should take you!) and savour epic views that stretch all the way from Rame Head to Falmouth, in this glorious Whitsand Bay location; part of a ‘forgotten corner’ of Cornwall that boasts four beautiful miles of golden-sand beach.

Better still, the wraparound glass front means you can watch those expansive, ever-changing sea-and-skyscapes directly from the sofa. Though if you do step outside, an abundance of comfy furniture will be ready and waiting for you, along with a private hot tub… the perfect sunset treat.

Once the sun has retired, there’s a Smart TV to help keep you nicely entertained, or how about cooking up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen? (You’ve also got the option of seeing in the stars with a sizzling barbecue out on your deck – the choice is yours!)

Time to turn in? Simply step down to the sumptuous double bedroom, which is luxuriously furnished in fresh coastal style. There’s also a second Smart TV, for ridiculously snuggly movie-nights and lazy lie-ins alike.

After a sound night’s sleep, freshen up in the en-suite shower room, before enjoying morning coffee and a hearty breakfast with a side-order of sea-nery. Then, if you can bear to leave, how about getting up close and personal with this incredible part of the world?

More information

With direct access to the South West Coast Path, you can take the dogs out on an epic coastal walk in no time at all. Why not test your feet (and paws!) with a four-mile stroll to sleepy Portwrinkle, boasting 17th century architecture and a windswept harbour? The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are just over three miles away, too… an ideal spot for rock pooling.

If you’re in the mood to explore further afield, Downderry, Looe, and Polperro are all in easy reach by car, offering a myriad ways to spend your time.

But if you really can’t tear yourselves too far from your sanctuary at Clifftop Nest, a mere one-mile wander will take you into Millbrook, where you can enjoy a cuppa at the clifftop café, then stock up on supplies for yet another glorious evening in together.

Things to note
