Reviews

    • “On arriving at Marpen, we wondered what we had let ourselves in for! With the rotting fence, and rotting gate ( falling off!) as you looked around the out side, it's obvious that it needs repairs and painting, urgently ! However, inside made up for all this, as it was very clean and tidy, and lived up to the description from Helpfulholidays. The views if course sell it and made up for any disappointment .”

    Mr Grimsley, COALVILLE, June 2018

The Property

In Freathy on Whitsand Bay, with superb panoramic views out to sea and along the coast, a detached, single-storey chalet perched high above the cliff road, facing south-west for all-day sun and spectacular sunsets. Enclosed garden with seaward-facing paved terrace (gated), outdoor shower and small lawned areas front and back. Freathy's playing field/tennis court, 100 yards. The glorious, huge sandy beach, about 350 yards, reached by a steep and, in places, rough footpath.Inside, smartly refurbished and designed to display the 180 degree seascape (binoculars provided). Steps (or gentle slope) down to glazed front door to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with TV/DVD, futon sofa (converts to double bed for alternative sleeping) and big glazed bi-fold doors to terrace (table/chairs, barbecue) and shed (washing machine, tumble drier, space for surfboards etc). Two neat bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a small twin (truckle, 2'6" beds zip-linkable to 5' double with access from end only; hooks for clothes-hanging). Compact bathroom (suite, shower over 4' long bath plus hand-shower). Best for maximum of 2 adults, 2 children. A sensational spot any time of year.






Whitsand Bay: 5 miles of sand and rocks, uncrowded because no roads to the shore, between Rame Head and Portwrinkle. Cliffs slope down to the beach, with chalets in places, including Tregonhawke (acclaimed restaurant, beach café) and Freathy (playing field/tennis court, buses to foot ferry to Plymouth from Cremyll) hamlets. Good surfing; HMS Scylla (sunk for marine research) attracts divers. Beach fishing; coarse fishing nearby. Cliff-top golf. Coastal walks. Millbrook, 1 mile; Kingsand/Cawsand, 2.

Regional Information

WHITSAND BAY 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.
