Discover the natural beauty of Whitsand Bay from the luxury of Kittiwake

Coastal chic meets penthouse holiday living, welcome to Kittiwake. This wonderful apartment has been flawlessly created for friends and family to escape to the coast for a stay to remember. Close to Looe and Polperro, Kittiwake is located in the charming former fishing village of Portwrinkle on the Rame Peninsula and offers two stylish bedrooms and two contemporary bathrooms with spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen spaces. The roof terrace ensures the perfect al fresco ambience with the breathtaking sea views and high cliff backdrop of Whitsand Bay. Wander from your holiday door to the two beaches in Portwrinkle and access to the coastal pathways leading along some of Cornwall's most wonderful walks and iconic seascapes plus the three-mile stretch of sand at Whitsand Bay. The Whitsand Bay Golf Club is in Portwrinkle and welcomes non-members and is loacted next door, simply a short 'putt' away.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we had everything we could possibly need in the apartment; including the wonderful view! We have very fond memories of a much needed family holiday.

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. 

On Your Doorstep

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 enjoying a lazy lunch and watching 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. Heading along the coas path, 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.
