Sit back, relax and enjoy the view from The Hideaway.
Welcome to The Hideaway.
The kitchen-area has all the essentials, should you want to do any cooking whilst on holiday.
Outside or inside, you are never far from that view.
The setting is quite magical.
The Hideaway is surprisingly spacious but everything is also close at hand.
The bed is located on a mezzanine floor at the back of The Hideaway.
The stylish shower-room leads off from the bedroom-area.
If the weather won't allow you to dine outside there's also a dining-area inside.
Pull back the double doors to listen to the sounds of the sea.
After all that sea air you are sure to have a good night's sleep on the super-king bed.
Lying in bed you can still enjoy that view - for some extra privacy there is a screen that can be pulled across.
The Hideaway has ample storage space.
The perfect spot for a holiday read.
The friendly owner lives next door, with their friendly dog and cat and is on hand if you need any help or advice but will leave you in peace to enjoy your stay. They have a separate entrance way to their home.
There are numerous places to sit out, in case you fancy a change!
The owner's gorgeous dog may want to give you a warm welcome and then leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace.
Who can resist lazing in a swing chair.
Wow, what a location, it doesn't get much better than this!
The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand.
At Mount Edgcumbe park there are many great walks to discover, along with the historic house, gorgeous gardens, artisan shops and places to eat.

If you are looking for a room with a view, it doesn't get much better than this. Tucked away in a prime cliffside position, with views that stretch out across the shimmering waters of Whitsand Bay and as far as the eye can see along the south Cornish coast, The Hideaway promises an unforgettable stay.

From lazy mornings under the covers gazing out to sea, relaxing with a good book on your private terrace with the sounds of the sea as your playlist, long walks discovering delights along the coastal paths and dining under the open skies whilst watching the most stunning of sunsets, this little coastal retreat is a real tonic for the soul.

Step inside and the cosy and comfortable interiors have been cleverly designed to make the most of this very special setting. The living-room and dining-area take pride of place behind the large picture window which perfectly frames the view and set up on a mezzanine floor the bedroom area does not miss out on the view either (should you require a little privacy there is a screen you can pull across).

Set at the end of a private track (not suitable for low slung cars) the friendly owner lives next door and along with their gorgeous Tibetan Terrier and friendly cat, are there to provide you with a warm welcome and then leave you to enjoy this little piece of paradise in peace.

Located in what is said to be 'the forgotten corner of Cornwall', this unspoilt part of the county is yet to be discovered by hordes of tourists, and exploring this beautiful area is a delight.

The coastal path leads right from your doorstep with tracks tempting you down to the beaches, out to the headlands, into the local villages and beyond. You could try your hand at kite surfing and coasteering at the local surf school or perhaps a round of golf at the local links course. The historic houses and gardens of nearby Mount Edgcumbe and Antony are well worth a visit or wind your way through the charming villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with their pretty houses, narrow streets and good choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

For some city culture hop on the little ferry from Cremyll to Plymouth to enjoy some retail therapy, watch some live theatre or visit the historic Barbican, Plymouth Hoe and the trendy Royal William Yard, a unique location for food and drinks, shopping and events.
