    “This is our second visit to Seagull’s Nest and our holiday was so relaxing.”

    The location is picture perfect and we were once again loathe to leave at the end of our lovely week.

The property

At Whitsand Bay, about a mile from Millbrook, a detached, cliff-side chalet with stunning 'ships ahoy!' views from Rame Head to Looe.

About 100 yards of steep cliff footpath, ending in 24 steps, lead to it from the road.

To the side, a grassed area (picnic table) on two levels (small children beware) for sitting/sunbathing.

Café/shop, about 70 yards; beach by footpath, about 200 yards.

Inside, it is fresh, light and contemporary.

Living/dining/kitchen (microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric oven/gas hob, TV/DVD) with 180 degree sea views.

Two small bedrooms - a double (5' bed, access to one side of bed only) with 'nothing between you and the sea' views, and one with two 2'6" single beds (zip-linkable to 5' double); bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Washing machine, sink and additional loo in shed.

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and foot/car ferries to Plymouth, 5 miles.

A wonderful place, great for watching the sun rise. 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.

About the location

WHITSAND BAY

Torpoint 5 miles.

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.

Note: About 100 yards of steep cliff footpath, ending in 24 steps, lead to it from the road.
