The Edge | Luxury Self-Catering Beach hut | Whitsand Bay, Cornwall

Settled into the cliffs with a bird’s eye view over Whitsand Bay and the surrounding coast seemingly stretching on forever, The Edge is the perfect luxury self-catering beach hut for honeymoons and romantic escapes. With immaculate attention to detail, a sea-view hot tub and the starriest of night skies, this eco-friendly cedar-clad creation is the dreamiest of couples’ retreats.


A luxury beach hut with stunning coastal vistas and flawless sunsets, The Edge is an idyllic couples' retreat for lovebirds looking for some blissful time out. Cool interiors mirror summer days on the ocean waves while a hot tub above the beach is the most tempting of ways to spend every evening while on the Cornish coast. Stretch into the day on the yoga deck, wander the shore with feet buried in the surf and examine sparkling heavens through the telescope as night blankets this oft’ forgotten corner of Cornwall.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Talk about making it difficult to get out of bed! With a floor-to-ceiling picture window offering views from under crisp linens to the watery horizon, the only concern on any morning at The Edge will be who’s on tea-making duty. White-washed interiors combine with natural textures and shimmering gold-leaf fish, making this a hideaway in which to completely relax and forget about the real world. In winter, the wet room with underfloor heating ensures a divine pampering experience, while in warmer months, wash off salty skin under the moon in the al fresco shower.


When it comes to wow-factor locations, The Edge delivers on every level. Uninterrupted panoramic sea views provide a dramatic backdrop throughout all of England’s four seasons, while inside, handmade and bespoke furniture provide the comfiest of places to kick back and watch the ever-changing weathers across the sea. With a rugged cliff track running straight from the front door to the dog-friendly beach below, a dawn (or midnight) skinny dip is only a short stroll away.

For Relaxation

With bi-folding doors running the length of the open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen area, feel fully immersed in the outside world at any time of year. In the darker months, cosy up by the log fire while the wind whips up a frenzy on the surf and in summer, throw open the doors to let the sea breeze wash through the cabin before sinking into the hot tub with a glass of bubbly. From wildlife spotting to storm watching, this coastal bolthole flaunts the most remarkable of shows whatever the weather.


In addition to a fully-equipped kitchen, The Edge also has a dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is an allocated parking space available at the top of the cliff with a short walk down the cliff path using rustic steps to The Edge. The access path to the property is uneven in places and care needs to be taken.

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Whitsand Bay, Cornwall to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Head to the Beach! With miles of golden sandy beach, you have a bird’s eye view of Whitsand Bay from The Edge. 

Village Life There are some really beautiful seaside villages close to the property. Polperro (within 30 minutes of The Edge) is well worth a visit; take the horse and cart to the harbour front, then head on foot to look for the natural swimming pool carved into the rocks, before dinner at Couch’s.  Visit the fishing village of Looe with its cobbled streets, quaint cafes and gift shops, whilst there’s a real step-back-in-time feel to the narrow streets and quaint cottages of nearby Kingsand and Cawsand.

On Foot Adventures Pack a picnic and head off on foot to explore the stunning surrounds in which The Edge is nestled. There are some great walks – whether you’re looking for a more leisurely stroll or leg-stretch – from your doorstep.

On the Water From learning to surf, to coasteering and kayaking; whether you’re a novice when it comes to on-the-water escapades and you’re looking to try something new, or you’ve experience when it comes to adventure sports, there’s a whole host of activities available locally.  

Green Fingers From the 865 acres of parkland that comprise Mount Edgcumbe County Park, to the riverside setting of Anthony House and the woodland walks at Cothele, there are a whole host of interesting gardens and historic houses to explore.  The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a little further afield (around an hour from The Edge) but worth a visit to witness the Victorian gardens, ancient woodland and sub-tropical jungle first hand. 

Fore! There’s a stunning 18-hole golf course at Whitsand Bay if you fancy taking a break from a day at the beach.

Nearest Beach 100+ steps to Tregonhawke Beach, 1.1 miles to Freathy.



With electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer, the intimate kitchen is a charming place to cook up a romantic dinner for two featuring the best of local produce. There’s even a ‘love heart’ table - the perfect addition for a romantic meal over-looking the bay. 

In-House Cuisine

 If you'd rather spend your break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

You probably won’t want to leave The Edge behind once you’re there, but if you do want a change of scenery, then you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to local eateries. Just a 30 minute stroll away is The View restaurant where you can enjoy exquisite fish and seafood dishes. For a traditional parcel of salty fish and chips visit Posh Nosh, whilst slightly further afield the Blue Peter pub in Looe is perfect for a bowl of mussels on the terrace.
