Step Inside

Follow the country lane down into Portwrinkle where the smart newly built Kittiwake apartments offer a striking modern welcome amongst the green of the golf course and marine blue of the bay. Kittiwake is set at the penthouse level with the accommodation on one level. Arrive into small porchway with ample storage for all of your holiday kit from golf shoes to walking boots, sun hats to sandals. Step into the open plan kitchen, dining and living space and immerse yourself in the sense of serenity, light and space. The kitchen is fully fitted with cherry red cabinets and all the mod cons you could need for your indulgent holiday menu. Dine in style at the wooden dining table as you open the doors to the Juliet balcony for the perfect outside inside ambience, mood lighting helps further to set the scene. Relax in the comfort of the living room whatever the season, enjoy the peace and quiet of a winter weekend with a good book or gather as a group before stepping out for supper. A central hallway leads to two double bedrooms and two contemporary style bathrooms with complimentary toiletries. Each bedroom has been thoughtfully dressed to impress with the finest luxury linens, coastal inspired artwork and a fresh colour palette of coastal greens, yellows and blues. 

From your Holiday Door

The south facing balcony is accessed from the living space and master bedroom, offering a dining table with seating for 4. The perfect spot for a morning coffee as you plan the days itinerary. Climb the outside staircase to the rear of the penthouse and soak up the wonderful sea views from the large private roof terrace. This wonderful sun trap captures the day long sunshine as you recline on the sun loungers or enjoy a lazy lunch and watch the boats go by.


The two beaches in Portwrinkle - once busy with pilchard fishing boats and smugglers - are called Finnygook Beach and Hoodny Cove. Both are easily accessed from Kittiwake by walking the coastal path. Heading along the coast, the sweeping sands of Whitsand Bay stretch for three miles between Portwinkle and Rame Head. Here the rolling surf provides the best surfing in the area, and those seeking adventure can scuba dive the reef to the HMS Scylla wreck in the bay. Two charming 17th century fishing villages, Kingsand and Cawsand, are filled with narrow streets and colourful cottages that lead down to more sheltered beaches. 


Once the scene of a thriving pilchard industry the quaint harbour at Portwrinkle is now a place of calm. Guests will enjoy exploring this 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall, with it's sandy coves, country lanes and rolling farmland. A short drive along the peninsula sits Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park, with rolling woodland and breathtaking views. Whilst another ancestral estate, Antony House, is also nearby, wrapped up in history and sweeping views, this property was the film location for Disney's blockbuster 'Alice in Wonderland' in 2010. For the golf aficionado in the party then there is no better spot than Portwrinkle. Book your tee off time at the pro shop just a minutes from your holiday door and while away the day across the greens with wonderful sea views. If you are looking for a fabulous festive break then check in to Kittiwake for the celebration. The apartment could be used as a base to visit the Christmas markets along Cornwall's coasts or perhaps used to shop for those special gifts in the towns of Fowey and Looe.
