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

Ever dreamt of your own private clifftop retreat complete with bubbly hot tub and never-ending views out across Barbadian blue waters? Daydreamer offers just that and so much more. Blissfully set on Freathy cliff in 'Cornwall's forgotten corner', this luxury self-catering beach hut in Whitsand Bay is as seaside chic as they come.

Daydreamer, Whitsand Bay East Cornwall


Once home to a Sea Captain and lovingly passed down through his family for many decades, the newest generation have opened the doors of this luxury self-catering beach hut to offer others a slice of their seaside sanctuary. Daydreamer is sublimely set on Freathy cliff in Whitsand Bay, one of Cornwall’s lesser known holiday destinations, with unspoilt sea views as far as the eye can see. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows blur the boundary between inside and out, filling the living area with natural light and giving the feel of a blue sky summer zephyr all year round.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms 

The wraparound glass front and elevated position give this spacious beach hut a plush penthouse feel. Step down into the double bedroom and be tempted into the cloudlike bed scattered with fluffy pillows and patterned throws. Next door sits the en suite shower room complete with WC, basin and heated shower rail; a perfect place for post-beach pampering.


Atlantic winds bring changeable weathers, so when azure views turn to moody skies you are in for a treat. There’s nothing quite like storm watching from the steaming hot tub under a canopy of stars. Sipping on a flute of Cornish fizz and feeling the salt spray on your face will lift you onto cloud nine. A beach hut holiday hot spot for years, Whitsand Bay has lost none of its vibrancy. The three mile expanse of golden beach is certainly spectacular, but the real treasures lie in the hidden gem coves dotted all around. Scamper down to Sharrow Beach or Polhawn Cove for a sundown skinny dip and beach fire – don’t forget your marshmallows!

For Relaxation

Lovers will relish lazy mornings entwined between the sheets gazing out to the shimmering blue ocean. Watch white sails glide past in the distance and clean lines of surf roll in to the shore. Afternoons are best spent tucking into cream teas and ambling around one of the stately homes nearby. Lanhydrock is a fine example of a Victorian country house, whilst the gardens of Antony are sure to capture the imagination, used by Tim Burton as a film location for Alice in Wonderland.


Guests can drop luggage outside, the carpark is an easy three minute walk away. This deluxe beach hut is well-equipped with a fridge freezer, microwave, coffee machine and electric oven with grill and hob. There is an outside hut with washing machine and tumble dryer.



Style: The maritime chic interiors mirror the ever-changing seascape. White clapboard walls play host to French-inspired furnishings giving a nonchalant, boutique-style spin on traditional nautical interiors.

Our Take

Property Owner Jane says

As you step into the main living area, the vista of the sea stretching the total panoramic concourse of this majestic coastline from Looe Island to Rame Head gives you both morning sun and amazing sunsets. It´s during the winter months when I find these views most spectacular and invigorating.

Out & About

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

Village Life Daydreamer is perfectly placed for exploring some of the prettiest coastal towns and villages peppered along the South West coast. Visit traditional fishing villages Polperro, Looe and Fowey to find picturesque scenery, quaint shops and tearooms (and a traditional Cornish pasty or two!). There’s a real step-back-in-time feel to the narrow streets and cottages of Kingsand and Cawsand.

Dog Friendly Ramblings With no less than three miles of golden sandy beach below, there are plenty of sunny strolls to be had with your beloved pooch in tow. From Rame Head to Portwrinkle Beach and across Whitsand Bay, the exploration opportunities for you and your four-legged friend are endless.

Hole in One!  For golf fanatics who fancy taking a break from the beach, head to the highly recommended Whitsand Bay Golf Club, one of the most spectacular scenic courses in the South West. There is also a glorious 18-hole golf course at Portwrinkle, just a short drive from Daydreamer.

Country Homes and Gardens 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 host of interesting gardens and historic houses to explore. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Eden Project are a little further afield but well worth a visit.

On the Water For the adventure and adrenaline addicts among you, why not take to the water and learn to surf? Whether you’re experienced with water escapades or not, there are coasteering guides, kayak tours and other ocean based activities for all abilities within the Whitsand Bay area.

Nearest Beach Set on Whitsand Bay, the property is 100+ steps down to Freathy and around one mile to Tregonhawke Beach.



The open plan kitchen basks in a refreshing blue light reflected off the sea and makes cooking an absolute breeze. There's no place like Cornwall when it comes to clean seas, fertile land and passionate farmers, making some of the freshest produce you'll find anywhere in the UK. Cooking up the catch of the day on the barbecue with a bottle of Cornish fizz is the perfect accompaniment to a spectacular sunset.

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 partner (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

The View at Whitsand Bay is exactly that; a clifftop restaurant overlooking the bay serving up creative seafood. It comes recommended by BBC Countryfile, The Observer and The Times, who listed it within their Top 30 Sexy places to Eat! After an afternoon's windswept walk across the beach you can't beat a hot paper parcel of Posh Nosh's fish and chips and an ice cold Cornish cider.
