Atlanta | Luxury Self-Catering Cabin | Freathy, Whitsand Bay


Freathy, Whitsand Bay, Cornwall, UK

Studded into the cliff face like a hidden gem, unearth Atlanta and you'll discover an unforgettable escape in Cornwall’s forgotten corner. This luxury self-catering cabin flaunts panoramic views of Whitsand Bay's sweeping golden sand, azure waters and rugged coastline, creating an enchanting destination for holidays beside the sea. Complete with four-poster bed and double-ended spa bath, Atlanta is a supremely dreamy couples' retreat.



Believed to be over 100 years old, this lovingly restored seaside cabin boasts an enviable location perched on the edge of Freathy cliff. The interior is a mix of pared-back beach cottage style and bespoke furnishings with a tribal twist. The eclectic interiors combine with jaw-dropping coastal views of north Cornwall's Whitsand Bay, making this dog-friendly cabin a haven for couples and solo travellers looking for a blissful break away from everyday life. What could be better than starting and closing every day with a salt-kissed breeze and infinite blue horizon?


The wooden clad walls, floor-to-ceiling windows and reclaimed furnishings lend Atlanta the organic feel of a calming Cornish oasis. From the open-plan living area to the his-and-hers sinks carved from individual Indonesian stones, every inch has been lovingly designed with careful craftmanship. After a day spent surfing the Cornish waves, stomping the coast path and devouring cream teas, there will be no better way to relax than with a steamy soak in the double-ended Italian spa bath set in front of full-length glass gazing out to sea.


Both the bedroom and living area boast floor-to-ceiling glass doors, inviting guests to throw them open, let the fresh sea air in and make the most of indoor-outdoor living. Enjoy a morning coffee on the secluded patio tucked away behind the bedroom or opt for a leisurely breakfast spread of fresh pastries and berries on the decking. After a stroll on the beach below, rinse sandy toes under the outdoor shower then recline on the deck with a glass of something chilled and raise a toast to your magical break away.

From the owner

“The clifftop views from the beach cabin are stunning and every day bring something new. From still sunny days looking at the gentle lapping of the waves to the pure drama of a winter storm, Atlanta is our slice of Cornish heaven.”

From the owner

Atlanta is believed to be about 100 years old and was previously owned by various generations of the same family. The previous owners' love of this Whitsand Bay beach cabin shone through when we first visited it and we knew it would be a perfect base for us. We have now put our own stamp on Atlanta but have kept the previous owners informed during the refurbishment, so they know what it looks like today.

The coastal views from the cabin are outstanding, both out to sea and of the beach below and adjacent cliffs. The surrounding rural countryside is also magnificent. We love spending time here and always find it very relaxing. Throughout the year the sea views are always interesting and forever changing. It is magical during the lovely sunny weather sitting outside with a glass of wine and it's equally wonderful inside in winter, watching the waves crash against the rocks during a storm. Keep an eye out for wildlife - occasionally dolphins can be seen in the bay!

Guest Testimonials

We came away to chill and Atlanta is the perfect place for that. I think we only ventured away from the property twice, it’s such a great spot to just relax and switch off and the views overlooking the bay and sea are absolutely breath-taking. I can say with the upmost certainty that we will be booking to come again - no question!

The kitchen facilities were especially good with everything we needed to prepare our meals. The spa bathroom was possibly one of my favourite spaces. Being able to lie in the bath whilst listening to the sea, just magical. I´ve also just ordered the same bed linens that were used in the property for my own home as I´ve never slept so well. If I´m honest I don´t think the photos fully do this unique property justice. It´s simply fabulous.

A spectacular position, with majestic views in both directions. Very well appointed chalet with thoughtful and well-designed furnishings. Thoroughly enjoyed our four days with Myla running wild on the beach.

An amazing home in the most beautiful setting. Have fallen in love with this coastline and have found my ´happy place´. The hot tub and spa bath were both fabulous! Every detail was thought of to make the stay simply perfect! We will, without doubt, be back!

The location of Atlanta is stunning and the property itself is amazing both inside and out. The housekeeper does a superb job keeping it immaculate and we definitely hope to return in the future!

Our main criteria when looking to book a holiday is always the location and a sea view (or near to the sea). Atlanta is perfect in every way. Super king-size bed, quality furnishings, quiet, private and although pets are accepted, you would not know! The property is maintained and cleaned to a super high standard. Thank you for a great stay.

Wow, what a wonderful place to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. We had fantastic weather and the area has amazing walks, views, and places to visit. This has to be the most perfect, romantic place to stay in the UK! Thank you for making Atlanta so special.

Staying in your home was such a treat! We loved everything thing about it and of course, the view is spectacular. We were blessed with the most beautiful weather which made all the walks along the beaches just breathtaking. We are loathed to leave this wonderful haven to return to London, but it´s been a very relaxing and nourishing week. Thank you so much!

We don´t normally return to a place, but this is our second time here and we have not been disappointed. Atlanta is a lovely property with everything you could possibly need. Fantastic views and even though the weather has not been in our favour, it really didn´t matter - just perfect!

Despite arriving on a dark and stormy night, we instantly felt cosy and relaxed. We were welcomed by warm lights and a lovely bottle of champagne, a very special touch! Saturday was spent watching the waves crashing onto the beach below, followed by glorious sunshine on Sunday. This is our third stay at Whitsand Bay, and this was definitely the best! Atlanta is a wonderful place to stay and completely unwind - even the dog is reluctant to go home! Thank you for giving us a glorious weekend that we will always remember.

Wow! What a wonderful house! Even on a wet and windy weekend, we had the most amazing time. The house is beautiful - we absolutely love the decor. Thank you, for all the little extras. It was gorgeous one evening in particular - the sun had come out for a little while and we were treated to a stunning champagne sunset. Thank you, for everything - we will be back.

With the drama of near hurricanes and blustering winds; we still had a wonderful time in this gorgeous chalet! It´s so peaceful here. We just love the light, space and charming, luxury decor, not forgetting the ever-present sea!

We´ve so enjoyed our stay! Atlanta is so relaxing, beautiful and full of ´wow´ factor. Walks on the beach and along the cliff tops are fabulous. Park at Rame and walk from there, it´s very scenic and lovely to see wild ponies in the fields. Polperro is also gorgeous and we really enjoyed sampling some of Rick Stein´s fish and chips and bought some lovely fresh fish for the BBQ. A huge thank you to Gina who has looked after us so well during our stay! Atlanta is definitely one to return to! A true piece of paradise to experience.

Thank you for an incredible stay at this spectacular home. Everything is just wonderful, from the stunning sea views to the amazing interiors. Despite the weather not being as sunny as we´d hoped, we still had an excellent holiday and we are already planning our return! This is, in our opinion, the most beautiful place you could possibly have the pleasure of staying in. A superb location not matched by anything else we have ever seen or stayed in. It´s such a shame we have to leave!

We have had the most fantastic few days away at this wonderful place. Every thing has been perfect at Atlanta, and we could not have asked for more. The area is also a wonderful place to stay, plenty of walking and beautiful views - it has allowed us to really relax and get away from it all. We will be back!

On arrival we were lost for words! What an unreal and beautiful place to be spending our honeymoon. Atlanta is perfect and all the attention to detail made us feel right at home. The decor is gorgeous and has given me some ideas for my own home! My husband and I have enjoyed every minute staying here and are really sad to be leaving but we have some wonderful memories and would love to return in the future!

Thank you for the most wonderful holiday. We got married on Saturday and at the end of our mini-honeymoon, we feel like we´ve been on a two week holiday in the Maldives! Atlanta is just stunning - everything about it feels like home. So much thought and care has gone into every detail. As for that view, there are no words! We have loved every second and we will be back to celebrate our wedding anniversaries here for many years to come! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Please pass on our thanks and gold star top marks to the property owner! It was obvious how much care and attention has gone into everything in the property and the fact they had gone for high end options for literally everything from the TV and Sonos right down to the tea set. None of that was lost on us & it made our stay super awesome. Thank you!

My boyfriend arranged this weekend away to propose to me and we have had the best time staying at this beautiful home. The views are breathtaking and we have loved sitting outside watching the sunset every evening. The ease of having the beach on the doorstep was perfect for afternoon strolls. A lovely little getaway! We will be back soon.

My wife arranged this week away for my 60th birthday as a surprise and what a surprise it was! It was glorious from start to finish, from the location to the accommodation, Atlanta was absolutely brilliant. We have had our own chef arrive on the night of my birthday to create and serve a romantic dinner for two in this gorgeous setting. Everything about this place is first class!

Thank you for an amazing time. This was the perfect ´final fling´ getaway before the arrival of our little one. We loved visiting Cawsand, Kingsand (my husband in particular enjoyed the additional varieties of Kelly´s Ice Cream you can get down here!) and enjoyed the long walks on the beach. Loved the spectacular views and relaxing setting!

What a magical place! We had amazing weather, it was like being in the Mediterranean, just nearer to home! Highly recommend walking to Cawsand and Kingsand and getting the bus back! We ate in The View restaurant and it was fabulous, great food and good value! We will be back!

What an amazing place in Cornwall this is! Atlanta is a little bit of luxury hidden in this magical area. We stayed here as part of our travels around Cornwall for our 10th wedding anniversary. We spent most of our time on the beautiful balcony space in the scorching sun admiring the breath-taking views. Thank you so much for a fantastic stay!
