The best thing about:

The commanding cliff top position and views.

The walk to the beach

250 metres down the cliff path.

Where Is It?

Perched on Tregonhawke Cliff, high above the beach and sea below, Brackenbank is a chic chalet made for romantic escapes and family holidays. It was recently featured in The Guardian's 30 UK Holiday Cottages to book for 2021.

Whitsand Bay is a wide, dramatic arc of coast, with a long sandy beach dotted with craggy rocks and backed by high cliffs. Located on the Rame Peninsula, this beautiful stretch of Cornish coast is bound by the Lynher and Tamar rivers, the Hamoaze and the sea. Known as Cornwall's 'Forgotten Corner', the area is designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Explore the winding clifftop paths, stroll to a nearby cafe for lunch and relax with ever changing sea views. Close by, are the pretty coastal villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, from which a ferry will take you across to Plymouth.

Guest comments

  • An absolutely superb property beautifully presented and maintained in a wonderful location with unrivalled sea views. Excellent attention to detail in the decor and layout. Very warm, comfortable and cosy, especially during severe winter storms and snow. Cannot praise the property enough.

  • We stayed at brakenbank whitsand bay it was beautiful. The property was beautifully decorated, clean, everything you needed with lovely little touches. It felt like a home, in a breath taking place over looking the ocean. One of the best places I have ever stayed. We are planning to stay again.

  • This is our second holiday staying at Breckenbank - it is perfect, from the views, decor, location to cleanliness and overall holiday feel - you will not be disappointed! We visit Whitsandbay twice yearly and have experienced many properties - this is by far the best.

  • A BIG thank you for what was an amazing week at Brackenbank - such a beautiful, tranquil place to stay. We had everything we needed in the chalet, too. And, what a fantastic location! We just wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back, again, I feel sure :)

  • We had the most wonderful week in our Cliffside cabin! The property was perfect in every way. The views were just stunning and it was hard not to just sit all day and look at the incredible seascape. We will be returning...leaving to come home was the downside!
