About Whitstone CottageA traditional white-washed cottage with a thatched roof and a country rustic interior.
Stay in rare survival of an unspoilt cob and stone Cornish cottage with a part-thatched, part-slate roof. Inside you’ll find all the quirks of traditional country cottage as well as a few modern comforts. Low beamed ceilings, slate floors and wonky timber frames are met by modern furnishings. You’ll have your own enclosed garden too, which is a real sun-trap in the summer and views of other historic buildings nearby.
Just outside your doorstep, a network of footpaths will lead you around Loe Pool, the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall, and its densely wooded banks. The golden sands of Loe Bar are just a 25-minute walk from the cottage.
For the nearest town, the bustling town of Helston is just a 5-minute drive. Further afield, the fascinating island of St Michael’s Mount can be reached in 25 minutes. Take a short evocative boat trip to the island, or at low tide, enjoy the walk across the causeway. Discover its iconic medieval church and castle and its subtropical terraced garden.
