For the seekers of luxury escapism on the wild Cornish coast, uncover our oceanside retreat of dreams nestled on the rugged cliffs of Whitsand Bay. A secret oasis for couples or solo travellers alike, where endlessly uninterrupted sea views and breath-taking interiors await for a truly unique getaway. Fika is the epitome of its namesake, offering a space to practise the Swedish ritual of slowing down, taking a moment to relax in comfort with others and relish life's simplest pleasures together. Every inch of this Scandi-style hideout has been thoughtfully curated with solitude and perfect seclusion in mind, offering both luxury and comfort to slow the pace of life. Step inside this heavenly homestay to find gorgeous open-plan living, embraced by its striking, charcoal-black larch clad exterior and floor-to-ceiling glass doors which welcome the outdoors in, making the very most mesmeric ocean vistas. Outside you'll find a sun-soaked deck which wraps around the retreat, offering idyllic outside living for restful al fresco moments and a bubbling hot tub which overlooks far-reaching views of the horizon. Should you ever wish to leave our dreamy hideaway, there's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, whether it's exploring the wildly beautiful coastline and secret coves or venturing to the finest seafood restaurants, the magic of the south Cornish coast awaits.


Living and eating

Fika's exquisite open-plan living design combines sumptuous interiors with an awe-inspiring clifftop position through the double aspect, full height picture window, featuring glorious views out towards Rame Head. Discover a curved, blush velvet sofa, nestled perfectly into the angles of this contemporary design and settled beside the gorgeous wood burning stove, just made for cosy evenings in front of the fire and a dose of storm-watching as the waves roll in. There's a Smart TV for catching up on your favourite series and a Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker to create the perfect soundtrack for your getaway. With the warmest hues and luxurious furnishings throughout, this stunning sojourn captures the very essence of 'Fika'; slowing down and taking time for the good things in life.

Within the sleek, Mirostone kitchen area you'll find an island complete with induction hob and cooker, along with everything you could possibly need to rustle up a romantic feast for your loved one. Settle into the super-comfy backed stools with a glass of wine, or savour some locally sourced delicacies for supper, whilst gazing over the ever-changing tides. Dining at Fika is accompanied by designer Scandinavian dinnerware and lust-worthy views, best relished from the comfort of your secret sanctuary. Sliding doors lead out onto the deck, bubbling hot tub and barbecue kitchen area beyond...


Sleeping and bathing

The open-plan living design features an utterly dreamy bedroom space, where the luscious king size bed resides in glorious grey velvet with a cashmere pocket Hypnos mattress and dressed in crisp white French linen bedding. Fall into sweet slumber and awaken to soft sighs of the ocean, greeted by a dream-worthy ocean scene from the comfort of luxurious linens. On warmer mornings, head out onto the deck through the French door to bask in a dramatic sunrise over the far-reaching horizon. Fika's heavenly divan lies in front of a stunning beech panelled feature wall, where concrete light fittings and galvanised switches create a desirable industrial style. We simply adore the Scandi magic of this space, promising cosy corners to escape reality with a book in hand, or hide in bed with your morning latte for lingering lie ins, quietly watching the waves roll in.

The pièce de resistance of this gorgeous space is the vast Lusso stone charcoal-black bath, just perfect for soothing soaks for two, featuring a bespoke window design which wraps around the bathtub, enveloping those sumptuous bubble-topped bathing moments with infinite sea views. Slip softly into romantic retreat reveries, made to captivate the mind and soothe the soul.

In addition, Fika holds a Lusso stone charcoal-black rainfall shower for rejuvenating soaks, underfloor heating to keep toes toasty underfoot and a designer chime towel rail to leave towels warm and fluffy.

There's also plenty of storage space to be found in both the larger wardrobe located in the retreat entrance, along with an open oak wardrobe in the bedroom space.


Outdoor space

Step outside to uncover the simply stunning deck, a huge space for outdoor living which offers 180-degree sea views, whilst retaining perfect privacy. Fika's bespoke design and dream position promises the ultimate solitude, with a lovely rustic stone wall framing beautiful views over the beach below and coastline beyond.

With such enviable views, you may never want to leave; relish seclusion with luxurious sun-loungers, outdoor chairs, a side table and bistro table for al fresco dining and a large slate surface perfect for whipping up feasts on the electric Weber BBQ. Striking blues and whites of the agapanthus, verbena and lavender nestle against the pebbles which surround Fika, dotted with succulents and ornamental grasses which catch in the breeze beautifully. The path fans from the gate to the main entrance along to the deck, where a Cornish slate wall reflects the curves of the headland as it softens into the cliff, offering blissful shelter and seclusion.

Seek inner peace with a moment of sunrise yoga accompanied by the hush of rolling waves, followed by a slow morning breakfast of coffee and local pastries, relish a relaxed barbecue lunch before champagne in the hot tub as the sun begins to set. Dusk brings moments at Fika that are quite simply otherworldly in this secret spot for lovers; staycation magic truly resides at our clifftop retreat of dreams.

What a place! Looked amazing in the photos and just as good if not better in real life! Unreal location, great attention to detail and a very well thought out space. Couldn't fault it!

This is a stylish great escape place for 2. Really well fitted out and warm/comfortable. The views are amazing, especially from the hot tub. Just remember not to put the dishwasher on before you go to bed.

Fika is just beautiful. Bryony and Bertie have created a special place and have thought of every little detail. We loved our stay and you could never tire of the breathtaking views. A perfect retreat.

What a fantastic, breathtaking, relaxing retreat. FIKA is glorious. We booked this for a mini honeymoon and cannot recommend it enough. The location is perfect, with the most wonderful views. I honestly cannot put into words how much we enjoyed our stay at FIKA and urge anyone thinking of booking to absolutely go for it!

It was just perfect, shame we couldnt stay longer!

You never believe the accommodation is going to match up to the beautiful pictures you first see online. And you never think you'll get the weather... and yet Fika was even more gorgeous, with the weather delivering every day of our stay. Just magic.
Stylish and carefully curated design choices, making our stay so special. Everything was completely perfect. I found it almost impossible to leave.
