Tempest | Luxury Self-Catering Beach Hut | Whitsand Bay, Cornwall

Surrender to the drama and majesty of Whitsand Bay with a luxury self-catering break at this Whitsand Bay beach house. Once you have fallen asleep to the sound of the waves, soaked in the hot tub and gazed out at the infinite views of sea and sky, you'll find it hard to believe there is anywhere else in the world. Let this 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall lure you under its spell...

Luxury self-catering beach house in Cornwall


Tempest is a stunning salt-kissed cliffhanger and one of the largest abodes on Tregonhawke Cliff in Whitsand Bay. The industrial interiors harness a palette of chalks and charcoals, with pops of zingy yellow which evoke thoughts of the rugged granite outcrops and gorse-lined coast paths, all of which can be found in abundance throughout Cornwall. The open plan living areas of this luxury self-catering beach house provide a stylish space for complete relaxation; throw open the sliding doors and let the sea air work its magic. 

Bedrooms and Bathrooms 

Both the spacious bedrooms at Tempest boast unbroken sea views reaching out towards the horizon meaning the whole family can enjoy sundowners from the comfort of their luxury bedrooms. The king-size ground floor bedroom has a spa bath with WC room opposite, whilst there is a shower room and WC alongside the super-king zip-and-link bedroom upstairs. Laying in the bath and looking out over the ever-changing sea vista is simply spectacular, there is no better way to relax after a day exploring the rock pools and Cornish coastline.


Wherever you choose to sit within the tiered gardens at Tempest, the call of the birds and the hypnotic ebb and flow of the tide will provide the soothing soundtrack to your day. After a day of beach fun, enjoy a family barbecue out on the deck with the vast blue ocean splayed out before you as far as the eye can see. Keep an eye out for the occasional pod of dolphins playing in the deep! In wintertime, wrap up in blankets as soft as the clouds above with a steaming cup of cocoa or enjoy a dip in the hot tub and watch the wild crashing waves from your cliff top eyrie.

For Relaxation

The Rame Peninsula remains one of Cornwall's most unspoilt pockets, and it's a fine place to head when you want to experience a calmer pace of life. Whether enjoying fish and chips straight from the paper sat on the harbour wall of a nearby fishing village, or hurriedly finishing an ice cream before it pools in the sun, a summer holiday at Tempest will create happy memories by the bucket (and spade)-ful. If you can tear yourself away from the seaside, head to the utopian gardens of the ancient Port Elliot estate with a picnic of cucumber sandwiches and champagne.


This property has ample unreserved on-road parking on the cliff top. There are just a few steps down from the road to Tempest. The kitchen flaunts two ovens and grills, a combination microwave and grill, fridge-freezer, washer-dryer, dishwasher and coffee machine. There are non-slip dog bowls, dog towels and treats provided for your pooch to enjoy too!

Our Take

Property Owner Tina says

Every day is different at Tempest; the ever changing sea views never fail to stir a different emotion. I love to lay in the bath looking out over the ocean, particularly on a stormy night. My family most enjoy the spectacular sunsets whilst I love to watch the moonlight on the water.

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!

Beach Life With miles of sandy beach, you have a bird’s eye view of Whitsand Bay from Tempest, along with all the secret coves and beaches within.

Fishing Villages There are some exceptional seaside villages close by. Polperro (within 30 minutes) is well worth a visit; take the horse and cart to the harbour front, then head on foot to find the natural swimming pool carved into the rocks, before dinner at Couch’s. Visit the fishing village of Looe for cobbled streets lined with quaint cafes and gift shops, or step back in time visiting Kingsand and Cawsand with their narrow streets and sweet cottages.

Fore! There is a stunning 18-hole golf course at Whitsand Bay, for those who fancy taking a break from the beach.

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 but worth a visit to witness the Victorian gardens, ancient woodland and sub-tropical jungle first hand.

Water Sports From learning to surf to coasteering and kayaking, whether you’re a novice or pro looking to try something new, there’s a whole host of on-the-water-activities available for all.

On Foot Adventures Pack a picnic and head off on foot to explore the stunning surrounds in which Tempest is nestled. There are some great walks from your doorstep whether you’re looking for a leisurely stroll or coastal hike.

Nearest Beach Set on the cliff at Whitsand Bay, Tempest is only 0.1 miles by footpath to Tregonhawke Beach (100+ steps), with a plethora of other beaches all around.



The open-plan kitchen and living space is a stylish social area for preparing family favourites. The fresh produce on offer nearby is sure to get culinary imaginations going! Whatever the weather you cannot fail to be tempted out on to the deck to take in those heavenly views- wrap up warm and enjoy a winter barbecue when the skies are at their most dramatic and the stars at their most dazzling.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your self-catering 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'll find it hard to leave Tempest behind, 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, serving exquisite fish 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 Cornish mussels on the terrace.
