Moontide | Luxury Self-Catering Coastal Cabin | Whitsand Bay, Cornwall

As featured on George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, Moontide is a luxury self-catering cabin by the sea overlooking Whitsand Bay in the “forgotten corner” of Cornwall. Look forward to lazy mornings under the covers gazing out to sea, long days on the beach and al fresco suppers by the chiminea beneath a blanket of twinkling stars.

Moontide, Whitsand Bay


Whether looking for a perfect proposal, a refuge for relaxation or simply a spot to inspire the soul; Moontide ensures an unforgettable coastal retreat for couples and singles wanting to indulge in some precious ‘me time’. This luxury self-catering beach cabin hugs a prime cliffside position overlooking the beautiful expanse of Whitsand Bay in South East Cornwall. Beneath the charcoal cladding, a sumptuous Scandi-style interior provides a cosy space in which to sit back and watch the ocean.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

This cabin comprises an open-plan living area, cosy double bedroom and wet room with walk-in shower and WC. Pull open the French doors to hear the sounds of the ocean and let the sea breeze tickle your senses, rousing you from a dreamy night's slumber. Laid-back mornings are best spent spying on soaring peregrines and dolphins playing in the surf from the comfort of your luxurious king-size bed.


Dubbed its "forgotten corner", enjoy the austere simplicity of a traditional Cornwall where the fishing villages and unspoilt beaches are secret hub for those wanting to escape the county's busier parts. Moontide’s wrap-around deck is the perfect vantage point from which to admire dramatic seascapes. Let your partner cook up the catch of the day on the barbecue while you recline on the sumptuous daybed and watch the sun melt into the expanse of sparkling ocean.

For Relaxation

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. It is believed Napoleon once cast his gaze across the land as he sailed into exile and hailed it ‘the most beautiful place in England’. Wander through the labyrinth, read a book beside the river and don’t miss its acclaimed bohemian literary festival in the summer.


Ample parking is available on the cliff top. Please note that the property is a steep uneven walk down from the car parking space and similarly from the property to the beach, which may be unsuitable for the less-able. Access directly to the chalet involves some steep uneven steps with a handrail. The kitchen has an electric oven  hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The washing machine and dryer are in the shed on the deck.

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

Buckets and Spades With miles of golden sand on the doorstep, at Moontide you have a bird’s eye view of Whitsand Bay so why not scramble down the cliff to the expanse of beach for some good old-fashioned sand-between-toes fun?

Cornish Villages While the tourists flock to Penzance and Padstow, there are some beautiful fishing villages nearby. Polperro and Looe offer an insight to quintessential Cornwall at its best far from the madding crowds in what's dubbed the "forgotten corner of Cornwall".

Don't Forget Your Walking Boots Pack a picnic and head off on foot to explore the stunning surrounds in which Moontide is nestled. There are some great walks from your doorstep whether you’re looking for a leisurely stroll or high energy leg-stretch.

On the Water There’s a whole host of activities available for every ability. Head to the Adventure Bay surf school on the beach to pick up a board or get some expert tuition.

Fore! Golf lovers will like to know there is a stunning 18-hole golf course at Whitsand Bay if you fancy taking a break from a day at 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.

Nearest Beach Moontide is 100+ steps to Tregonhawke beach (taking approximately five minutes to walk down, perhaps a few more coming up!). Freathy is 1.1 miles by beach or 1.2 by road.



Be inspired by the wealth of local Cornish produce available nearby and get creative in the well-equipped kitchen. What better way to get a taste of the sea than to make a trip to the local fish mongers and pick up the catch of the day to fry up for an alfresco feast on the wrap-around deck with those enviable views out to sea?

Eating Out

Just a short walk away is The View Restaurant, aptly named, boasting spectacular panoramas across Whitsand Bay it's not one to be missed for lovers of good seafood. Head to the Posh Nosh takeaway at Millbrook for quality fish and chips. Or if it's a hearty pub meal you're after, try The Halfway Inn a few miles away with its contemporary menu including Scotch quail's eggs.
