Luxurious holiday house with breathtaking ocean views and a private roof terrace set above Whitsand Bay on Cornwall’s South Coast
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 3 nights low season & 7 nights high season
Set over the beach in the pretty Cornish hamlet of Portwrinkle, Sandpiper enjoys stunning seascapes and is set up for the ultimate coastal getaway. Spread across four floors of luxurious and practical features, from the wetsuit and surfboard area on the ground floor, to the boutique bedrooms with ocean-facing balconies, to the roof terrace with a hot tub at the top, all your beach holiday needs are catered for.
Head up from the ground floor with the large garage which doubles as a games room, using the internal lift if required, to the first floor. This is where you’ll find three of the five bedrooms, each with sumptuous king-sized beds and sliding doors which access a balcony overlooking the ocean.
The light and airy open-plan living and kitchen area is located on the second floor and also enjoys ocean views from its own balcony. There’s also an ensuite double bedroom on this floor and a little further up the stairs is a cinema room. A 55 inch TV and plenty of board games should keep everyone happy on the more blustery Cornish days. The sofa also pulls out to make a comfortable king-sized bed for a few extra guests.
At the top of the house, you’ll find the roof terrace, complete with dining area, which enjoys spectacular sea views. Lie back and relax in the sunshine on one of the sun loungers or recover from a day surfing or kayaking in the private hot tub.
Portwrinkle is a traditional 17th Century fishing village which overlooks the beautiful Whitsand Bay. It’s right on your doorstep with vast stretches of golden sands which extend from the village to Rame Head where you can enjoy panoramic views. The beach is great for surfing and beginners can book in a lesson at the Adventure Surf School. There are another two beaches less than 200 metres from Sandpiper, Finnygook and Hoodny Cove. Head down to Finnygook at low tide to explore the rock pools or pack up a picnic for a day at the beach.
Whitsand Bay Golf Club offers players ocean views from each of its challenging links-style holes. The South West Coastal Path also runs alongside Whitsand Bay, giving walkers the opportunity to explore the old fishermen’s allotments around Polperro and take in the expansive ocean views from the cliffs. Wander further down the coast and explore the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project or head even further afield to discover the gothic towers of Truro’s Cathedral or the medieval Tintagel Castle.
