With enviable views over Whitsand Bay, Breakers is a cool, luxury hideaway adorned with Barbara Hepworth prints, maritime finds and quirky Cornish treasures. Etched into the cliffside, hazy sun-drenched days and romantic evenings are made extra special. Wake up to awe-inspiring sea views stretching to the horizon and dip in and out of the outside world as you please. Easy access to the coast path and sandy beach just below tempt long balmy days on the sand, whilst the cosy interiors offer blissful hibernation in winter months. 


Breakers beach chalet has been styled using soft tonal hues which draw inspiration from the coastal landscape. Day or night, nestle into the sinkable sofa and gaze out through the enormous windows. With sliding doors, you can welcome in the salty sea breeze in summer or hunker down by the fire on chilly nights as stars pinprick cloudless skies. Making an idyllic vantage point for sipping coffee in the morning sun, the sumptuous bedroom opens straight onto the deck. There is also a dressing room with a single bunk bed available for children.


Keep eyes peeled for dolphins playing in the waves and seals basking in the sun. There are two spacious decked areas leading from the living areas; for ultimate romance dine al fresco underneath the stars in the pergola, or plot afternoon adventures with a map book from comfy chairs. The front deck is the perfect location for ice-cold G&Ts, taking in the scenes and watching the sun sink into the ocean. For seaside adventures, head to Portwrinkle fishing village or visit the secluded (and often empty) Hoodny Cove for a dip.

From the owner

“Settings as special as this one are hard to come by, if we say so ourselves! Perched cliffside and surrounded by sea vistas, the coastal views are amazing and ever-changing. A truly romantic beach chalet hideaway for a break you´ll never forget.”

From the owner

Frequent visitors to West Cornwall and Devon residents for over 25 years, we started looking for a bolthole on the coast in 2010. Following our search, we discovered Whitsand Bay - and what a find!

The beach chalets on Tregonhawke Cliff date back to World War II, although many fell into disrepair during the 1960s and 70s. When we purchased our chalet, the shell had been rebuilt but neither the interior nor the groundworks had been started. It was basically a blank canvas, which was ideal as we knew exactly what we wanted to do.

It took almost a year to complete; one of the main challenges was getting materials down the cliff (heavy sleepers and tons of pebbles are not easily shifted!). We decided to make Breakers available to Unique Homestays guests and it has been overwhelmingly successful. Visitors from all parts of the world have loved our beach chalet and found their time to be peaceful and relaxing, ideal for recharging their batteries.

There’s one thing we absolutely demand of all our guests – to have a great time during their stay.

Guest Testimonials

Thank you for creating this wonderful bolthole that can cocoon you from the worst weather, then open up to allow in the sunshine. We did need it too, talk about four seasons in one day we seemed to have four seasons every day! What a fantastic place to observe the changing weather patterns. We loved it! Many thanks.

We had an unforgettably beautiful week at Breakers ... wonderful weather in an impressively beautiful setting in this perfect house. We will always carry it with us in our memories. Thank you!

What an incredible place to unwind and totally relax - we feel very much refreshed after our stay. Wonderful cottage, wonderful views - very cosy even in a rainstorm! Thank you and we´ll be back.

A great week in a lovely place to stay. Some great days and views to die for. Thank you for such a relaxing and refreshing break. We will cherish our fond memories of Breakers!

It was a wonderful stay in a magical location. We saw all sorts of weather - hail, rain, blizzard, fog and sun! It remained stunning throughout. It´s the perfect location for a walk to the beach and there´s plenty to explore. Our favourites were surf lessons from Tor, Devonport Inn for seafood, Cliff Top for tea cakes and lots of cold water swimming. Thank you for sharing your space with us!

What a truly relaxing break we´ve had at this magical place. We´ve been so lucky with the weather and enjoying the view - how we´re going to miss that view! We´ve had some gorgeous walks, bike rides, enjoyed lovely Cornish pasties and amazing Cornish cream teas. This little cabin has just been perfect, thank you.

Breakers was everything we wanted in a short stay, and more. It has a superb view even with the grey wintry days. The house is extremely comfortable with good quality linen, towels and furnishings. The welcome hamper was lovely, and the kitchen so well equipped with every utensil you could possibly need and herbs, oils, condiments and dishwasher tablets! I even liked the tea towels. The downside was that this proved to be expensive - but only because I now need to buy a coffee machine, crockery and new bed linen so I can recreate Breakers at home! The view may prove more difficult!

What a find, we needed a break from work and ´Breakers´ is just perfect. Stunning views, a well equipped and beautifully decorated home to relax in. It´s so peaceful, you can kick back and listen to the sound of the sea, go for a coastal walk or head down to the beach. Our little beagle enjoyed it all very much. We don´t want to leave this beautiful place. We´d like to say a big thank you to the owner for all your help!

We´ve had a wonderful week at Breakers. It´s been a relaxing and peaceful experience, everything needed was provided. We loved the fluffy bathrobes, and the shower gel was so nice we will be stocking up when we get home! Our dogs Teddy and Bear have loved the beach, swimming and lounging on the decking. We´ve enjoyed cooking today and cuddling up, walking, watching DVDs in the evening. We were so lucky with the weather, it has been sunny every day, although I would love to stay here when its stormy and windy too!

Three days simply aren’t enough at beautiful Breakers. The little touches were so perfect, we couldn’t have asked for more or better. Champagne in the fridge and a selection of fine chocolates. Everything provided in this property is top class which we thoroughly appreciated. If only everyone could follow such great standards, it’s so simple and made the world of difference. Thank you for the quality tea and coffee, we had the best of everything! Cornish butter, fresh bread, local eggs. I would definitely revisit & recommend.

My wife and I have had such a beautiful time away together here at Breakers and celebrated our honeymoon here. It has been such a peaceful and relaxing time together. We will always have a warm smile in our hearts when we look back at our stay. The views are amazing, the sound of the waves gently crashing, the birds singing, the weather has been amazing, the starry nights, the relaxing start to each day, the walks, all of these wonderful things and sounds we will miss and will always have a special place in our memories.

Our stay was everything that we wanted it to be. Breakers is very well equipped and in a beautiful location, it was spotlessly clean and everything promised was provided. There is a lot to do and see in the area and no doubt we will return one day, but for this stay, we spent most of it at the property on the decking! We had glorious sunshine and spent time sunbathing and reading. The next day it poured it down all day, but it didn’t matter, we relaxed watching the sea and enjoyed simply ‘being’!

This has been the most private and beautiful property we have ever visited. Everything is so comfortable and we would love to stay forever. Meeting the owners was lovely, thank you for two weeks relaxing and enjoying the fantastic scenery and for having a forget-the-date-and-time time.

We couldn´t have imagined a more peaceful, cosy or idyllic place to spend our "mini-moon". Perfect sunsets every night, walks on the beach without seeing another person, and an amazingly comfortable and well-equipped nest to relax in. Waking up to the sounds of the waves and that view is extremely special. Thank you for the beautiful hamper - you really did think of everything! We will certainly be back - next time, hopefully, with a dog, which would make those walks along the coast even more magical. An unforgettable week, thank you!

We have had such a lovely four days in our beach hut. The weather has been gorgeous and was a perfect way to celebrate our honeymoon. The beach below is glorious, our Labrador loved running into all of the rock pools. It is so peaceful here and the view is to die for. The dressing gowns and home touches are amazing and make it very had to leave such a gorgeous place.

We stayed at Breakers to celebrate a big birthday. It was excellent and welcoming. Clean, tastefully furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. The owners have used every inch of the space to the max with clever design. The welcome bottle of wine and hamper was a lovely touch. We loved the gas log burner which made it so comfy in the evenings, especially when the weather was wet and miserable outside. I cannot fault the set up and the owners have tried to think of everything to ensure a pleasant stay. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

What a wonderful week we have had in this oasis! Breakers is perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly require. The views are just spectacular, and the weather has been gorgeous! Lots of walking along the beach and up and down the cliffs, plus a lovely walk to Cawsands along the coastal path. We will be back!

We loved the location of Breakers, it was perfect for us and the dogs. We enjoyed long quiet beaches for runs and swims. We wanted another week and are likely to book again. Everything was excellent.

Such a lovely spot, thank you! It was a total treat and the perfect retreat from the working world. We enjoyed stunning walks to Cawsand and then back over the fields to Breakers. The trip was blessed with sunshine and thunderstorms, the best!

Thank you so much for making this chalet the perfect holiday destination; from the chilled bottle of Crémant to the fantastic coffee machine (we have the same model on order as I write!) we were surprised and delighted by every details. We completely lost the game of "I bet they don´t have a ???" as you definitely have everything! We had amazing weather and loved the beach and cliff walks. Lunch at ´The View´ on Sunday was delicious, thank you for the recommendation. We can´t wait to return!

The perfect place, we could never tire of the most beautiful view. Have loved the opportunity to explore a new part of Cornwall, especially loved Kingsand and Cawsand. Thank you so much for sharing your fabulous beach hut.

We have had a great relaxing break here this week! A perfect place to re-charge the batteries after getting married last week. The chalet/log cabin was everything we could have wished for and more and the views are stunning, even with the wind and rain. The attention to detail here is second to none and the welcome hamper was delicious. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We will back.
