Set deep into the dramatic cliffside of Whitsand Bay, we're delighted to welcome you to this decadent beauty. An oh-so-grown up retreat for two, this is a place for serious romantics that's just a short walk from a gorgeous, sandy, dog friendly beach.

Step inside and you'll find rich, luxurious interiors that are hand-crafted and bespoke, where plush velvets, blackened steel, reclaimed wooden floors and poured concrete add a tacticity to the space. The crowning glory however is the immense 180-degree views over the sea, where every second of the day is spectacular, from dawn to dusk.

Sleeping up to two lucky people and a dog (two on request), this is a fabulous couple's getaway, an escape from the everyday where the healing properties of the sea twinned with the fabulously warm embrace of Kowetha will leave you fully relaxed and recharged.

Nestled within glorious Whitsand Bay, this extraordinary retreat is perfect for exploring the quieter corner of southeast Cornwall, whether it's walking the South West Coastal Path, enjoying the sandy beach below, exploring the pretty coastal towns or experiencing the fabulous eateries that dot the area.

Please do contact the office on 01872 553 491 if you have any questions.

Living and eating

The chic, richly coloured open plan living space is a sumptuous space with reclaimed wooden vintage floor, where darker interiors let the panoramic sea views from the glass doors take centre stage. At the centre, you'll find a cosy moss-green velvet sofa, just made for snuggling up on, and a fabulous wood burner for cooler days - a fabulous spot for grabbing blankets, making hot toddies, and sitting back and watch the majesty of a passing storm. On summer days, open the doors to let the soft sea breeze drift through, and the sound of the waves help you drift off into an afternoon snooze. To the back, we just love the library with shelving and the antique library ladder, where you'll find a collection of books and logs for the wood burner too. There's also a stylishly hidden away Smart TV for tranquil evenings in watching your favourite box set.

To one side lies the kitchen, immensely chic with bespoke blackened steel cabinets bedecked with brass handles and knobs, with poured concrete countertops. Although compact, it has everything to hand to create meals for your beau, with an induction hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, small fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and the all-important coffee machine. To the back of the room lies a perfectly bijou dining table for two- just darling!

You'll find the TV tucked away in a box in the kitchen beside the work bench, where it is mounted for you to move.

Sleeping and bathing

If you're looking for a dreamy, oh-so-romantic seaside setting to lay your head down at night, look no further than this beautiful room, where the comfiest king-sized bed with silk and cashmere mattress awaits, swathed in luxurious linens, luxurious cloud-soft bedding (that's made from recycled ocean plastic from British company Sirimiri) and cosy throws and pillows.

After a blissful nights' sleep, awake to uninterrupted sea views through the glass doors that open on to the balcony, whilst a deep soak in the astonishing copper bath for two is a lovely way to wind down at night, gazing out over the moonlit sea. Custom fabricated adjustable steel shutters bring privacy when needed, and there's plenty of built-in cupboards to stow away belongs. Inglenook bedside tables are handy for a nightcap or a morning cup of tea.

In addition, there's an attractive separate shower room with large walk-in shower and gorgeous handmade Moroccan tiles - we just love the copper heated rail to keep towels warm and soft, ready for when you step out after a morning's ablutions, and the attractive brick floor.

Outdoor space

With heavenly sea views in every direction, Kowetha's sun-soaked terrace is a blissful spot for passing the hours of your holiday. With two loungers, fabulous swinging chair and an oak bench seat, there's spots for lounging, whilst an outside dining table and chairs with an electric barbeque is just perfect for meals alfresco. Kowetha has a generous overhang roof which provides welcome shade on hot summer days - so no need to escape when it gets hot, and there's an outdoor shower too for washing off sandy toes and paws. Of course, the pièce de resistance has to be the bubbling hot tub, heated to a perfect 37-38 degrees - no better spot can be found for leaning back and star gazing as the velvet night creeps in after a glorious sunset.


Parking can be found a few minutes' walk away - a free parking permit is provided.

Babies and children

This is one of our adults-only retreats.


One small dog is very welcome at Kowetha. Please get in touch with us if you have two before booking. Please note, there is an additional fee per dog, per week or short break.

In the Area

You may never wish to even leave this heavenly homestay, however if you yearn to explore further afield there's plenty of things to see and do in Kowetha's beautiful corner of the world. When the tide is out, the Cabin is just a few minutes' walk down a footpath to a virtually private section of sandy beach great for dog walks or, for the more adventurous, surfing and paddleboarding. Promising a wildly rugged coastline and unspoilt beaches, Whitsand Bay and Freathy are lesser-known treasures just waiting to be uncovered. This allows for clifftop wandering to relish peaceful ocean vistas and moments of quietude in Cornwall's secret beauty spots. Discover unique eateries in the local area, with The Clifftop Café only a short walk away, promising a varied menu and breath-taking views. Head to The Carew Arms in Antony village, well worth a short trip in the car to indulge at this gastro pub with a café and farm shop or explore The Devonport Inn in Kingsand. For a spontaneous day out, ride the passenger ferry at Cremyll to Royal William Yard where you'll discover an array of cafés, restaurants, and boutique stores. Whether you plan to uncover the nearby seaside villages of Kingsand, Cawsand, Looe and Polperro, or desire to stroll the South West Coastal Path, Kowetha is perfectly set to venture across the wild beauty of South Cornwall.

With an epic panorama of Whitsand Bay, our dog friendly coastal hideaway is beautifully matched with sumptuously rich interiors and a welcoming hot tub...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Kowetha:

Superb Chalet in a glorious location with an uninterrupted spectacular sea view. Everything in this Chalet is high spec and every detail for a perfect stay has been thought about. So relaxing and peaceful. Would highly recommend.

We had an amazing stay the beach and accommodation are just perfect x

We had the best time at the cabin, our dog absolutely loved it as well, everything was perfect, clean and well thought out! Would definitely come back!

Fantastic retreat in a stunning location, we had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful location and stunning property for a relaxing weekend.

The view and amenities are fantastic even in winter and we would love to visit again in the summer.

A very cosy property with everything you need. Beautiful view and much appreciated welcome package that really goes the extra mile.

As above

Sea views were superb and the hot tub was wonderful along with the private external area.

The welcome pack was a nice surprise and much appreciated

Absolutely stunning location and views! Loved every design detail, they have thought of everything you could need. Super comfortable and luxurious stay. Really appreciated the thoughtful welcome pack, including little doggy treats! We felt incredibly relaxed as soon as we arrived, and so did our little border terrier!

Kowetha is a beautiful retreat. Everything was meticulously thought out. Lovely welcome pack, spotlessly clean, luxurious fittings and appliances, generous necessities to use including for the dogs, robes and slippers, beautiful bed, fantastic balcony overlooking those stunning views. A perfect getaway to completely relax and switch off. Loved every minute. Thank you.

A beautiful cabin, a perfect retreat. Exceptional in my view and I have stayed in many holiday retreats over the years. Others will have to reach a very high standard to come anywhere near. The welcome gifts were lovely and totally unexpected, and the doggy throw and dishes the cherry on the top.

Fantastic views, gorgeous interiors, top spec

This place is unbelievable. Exquisitely designed with meticulous attention to detail.

A fantastic week spent with the dog on the beach, and a BBQ every evening followed by a dip in the hot tub. Perfect.

Beautiful retreat with fabulous views and everything we needed for our stay.

Absolutely amazing. We had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday at Kowetha. The house had everything we needed and is so beautifully designed. The view is simply breathtaking and the beach is heaven. We didn't want to leave!

Could not fault Kowetha, it was simply stunning! Amazing views, perfect location, and so many lovely little touches throughout the property.

We were here for 12 days and enjoyed the holiday to the fullest. KOWETHA is absolutely beautiful, everything is very clean and well maintained. One point to consider: Our Labrador dog is 10 years old and has problems with her joints. If you want to go to the beach there are no stairs in the last lower part. The dog has to jump off stones into the sand and to go back we had to lift her (30 kilos) onto the big stones.

Absolutely adored this place! Decor and fittings are extremely high quality, unbeatable views, so peaceful and relaxing. We will definitely be booking again! Space feels even more roomy than the photos, could not recommend more highly!

Absolutely blown away with how beautiful our cottage was.

Loved it!

We had an enjoyable and romantic stay at Kowetha. We appreciated the beautiful decor and modern amenities. The retreat was perfect for watching the waves crashing below us, whether we were in the hot-tub, bath or sitting by the log burner in the lounge.

Exceptional location and facilities. Every meticulous detail catered for. Beautiful design and stunning location. Was immaculately clean and host was happy to be in communication if required. Thankyou.

Perfect - 5*.

Marcel (my dog) and I loved the cabin, being able to be outdoors on a fully secure terrace and hear the waves on the cliff / beach was super relaxing. The view was to die for, decoration fabulous and it had everything needed for a fantastic dog-friendly stay and some much needed rest. The hosts were very responsive and helpful when we needed their assistance too! We’ll be back!

Kowetha is absolutely idyllic. A beautiful spot and super relaxing and luxurious. The views were amazing and there is everything you need from the accommodation!

Superb accommodation set on a cliffside with amazing views. Hubby recommends a hot outdoor shower on a cold winter's morning. Can't wait to return for a repeat weekend treat.

It blew us away! We hope to book again for 2024. And that’s saying something - we have never booked the same place twice before!

The owners of the retreat were really helpful whenever we reached out to them, and they are looking to improve the experience of their guests!

Fantastic location, great views.

A stunning setting, beautiful cottage, a lovely arrival basket which included scones, jam, clotted cream and half a bottle of champagne! A very relaxing break! Thank you.

Lovely relaxing retreat with great views and coastal walks.

It is stunning with a location that's second to none. It has been clearly built regardless of cost and has exquisite attention to detail. Nobody could be disappointed with this place. We will return.

This property is even better than it looks. The quality of the fixtures and finishing was excellent. Everything had been thought of in the kitchen and elsewhere. We booked our next visit here before we left. It is even better than the pictures on the website, and the attention to detail makes it even more special. A magical place for a tranquil escape.
