Cabin in Cornwall: This cliffside retreat is nothing short of a dream. With dazzling sea views to be admired from dawn till dusk, the location is quite simply out of this world. A coastal adventure awaits…
The location of this handcrafted cabin is quite simply majestic. Nestled at the very bottom of Whitsand Bay’s cliff-top, the cabin offers remote charm. Ocean vistas encompass this coastal retreat which can be admired from both the living space and the sun-soaked deck. On cooler days, get cosy by the wood burner while admiring the stormy winter seas below, and during the summer season, you’ll love nothing more than dining alfresco while taking in the golden sunset that dances across rolling waves. For those who love the ocean and dream of slipping away and switching off from the outside world for a few days, The Eagle is the perfect hideaway for you. Pack your walking boots, as access to the cabin is an adventure in itself. The Eagle truly is a one-of-a-kind place to stay, that’s off the well-worn path.
Once you’ve carefully made your way down the cliff path to reach your secluded haven, take a moment to soak up the spellbinding sea view before sliding open the bifold doors and stepping inside your bespoke hideaway. A vibrant colour pallet invites you in, and the ambience that the cabin oozes instantly puts your busy mind at ease. As you step inside, open-plan living greets you and the view that sits before you isn’t lost, as the cabin boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, that encourage the outside in. To the left, you’ll find the cosy living space. The comfy sofa adorned in colourful scatter cushions is an idyllic spot to unwind after a blustery beach walk. Put your feet up, light the fire and take time to read that book that’s been sitting on your shelf for far too long. To the right, is the lovely kitchen space, with a large island that offers the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee as you plan the day's adventure. The kitchen is well equipped with an oven, a four-ring gas hob and a fridge with a small ice compartment.
To find your bedroom, wander through the kitchen. The space is small, yet bright and airy, offering laid-back charm. The double bed is dressed in soft linens and with the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep, a good night's rest is guaranteed. The chic shower room can be found just behind the sitting area, an idyllic spot for refreshing after a day of sea swimming or coastal rambles.
Outdoor living is a dream at The Eagle as there are so many spots to sit and watch the world go by. Firstly, you have the patio set that’s perfect for enjoying your first cup of tea while you watch the world wake, then you have the gorgeous swing seat that’s idyllic for sundowners and finally, you have the alfresco dining table for a romantic evening dining under starlight. One of our favourite things about the outside space is the decking, as it’s the perfect space to enjoy a spot of yoga. What better way to start the day than by practising your morning vinyasa on the deck while listening to the sound of the rolling waves below? The owners kindly provide two yoga mats for guests to use during their stay.
The Eagle is an off-grid property. Electricity in the cabin is powered by solar and the hot water is heated by gas. This eco-retreat is brilliant for embracing a digital detox. Simply switch the phones off and reconnect with the one you love most in this coastal paradise. With a view like this who needs a TV? Enjoy a classic game of cards or practice mindfulness while journaling to the sweet sound of the Cornish coast.
This stretch of the Cornish coast is often referred to as the ‘forgotten corner of Cornwall’. Whitsand Bay boasts a vast sandy stretch of coast and far-reaching views out as far as the Lizard Point. Even in peak season, the beaches never feel that busy as they stretch so far, especially at low tide. With sandy shores and clear waters, there are plenty of great spots for a swim. Please note, this stretch of coast is only lifeguarded during peak season.
For keen walkers, you are in for a treat as the South West Coast Path runs right before your eyes, so don’t forget your walking boots! On a sunny day, pack a picnic and explore the local area on foot. One of our favourite walks is the circular loop to Rame Head. The dramatic scenery is simply stunning and you're likely to see a variety of wildlife enroute.
The pretty twinned villages of Kingsand and Cawsand are close by and are well worth a visit. With lovely local delis, quaint Cornish pubs and lots of great eateries you’ll enjoy an afternoon of exploring the cobbled streets. Maker’s Heights is a great place to stop for a spot of lunch, boasting sweeping sea views and serving only the freshest local produce, the unique menu is simply mouth-watering.
If city life calls, hop on the ferry at Cawsand (from April to October) and head over to the maritime city of Plymouth. The historic Barbican is lovely for a wander as is Plymouth Hoe with its iconic lighthouse and Royal William Yard with its vast array of restaurants.
Finally, if it’s picturesque gardens and verdant parkland you seek, be sure to check out Mount Edgcumbe with its historic house, artisan shops, cafe and interesting calendar of events.

Due to the romantically remote location of The Eagle, access to the cabin might not be to everyone's ability or liking. There is no set parking space for the cabin. There are plenty of parking spots along Military Road in Whitsand Bay which are easy to access during winter, but busier during peak season. Once parked, the climb down to the cabin is steep. The walk is around 500 steps and some areas are not easy underfoot. Wear sensible footwear and pack lightly, and if arriving after dark we do recommend bringing a head torch.

Bed linen and towels are included in the price. There are no extra charges for cots or high chairs where they are listed in the property description on the website.
