Guest book

This stunning seaside sojourn lies in beautiful Whitsand Bay, with incredible sea vistas best gazed at with glass in hand. Chic and charming, this is a beach house getaway whatever time of year; slide open the glass windows during summer months to bring the outside in or cosy up with the underfloor heating and wood burner in winter, with blustery weather creating dramatic views. The open-plan living space is just perfect whether you're a couple or a family; after all, spending time together is what holidays are for, and being dog friendly, your furry friends can come too! Moonstone is perfectly situated to explore the often-overlooked south-eastern corner of Cornwall, with sleepy villages, sandy beaches and the gorgeous Rame Peninsula within easy reach, right around to Fowey and beyond.

Living and eating

We're just in love with the open-plan living area, complete with floor to ceiling windows leading out on to the front terrace, dreamy teal paintwork, and eclectic art. To one side you'll discover the sitting area complete with grey sofa that's made for lounging - whether with glass doors open to let the gentle sea breeze through on a hot summer's day, or to curl up on in front of the flickering wood burner whilst gazing out over a winter storm.

To the back of the room lies the kitchen, sleekly gorgeous with wooden worktops and dark cabinets, a joy to cook in, whether you're a seasoned chef or a keen beginner. Perfectly formed, it comes complete with everything you'll need including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine. In addition, there's a separate utility room that houses the washer dryer.

The dining area is set just in front of the kitchen, and we love the turquoise-topped table, the perfect spot for laid-back lunches and decadent dinners.

Sleeping and bathing

The master en suite bedroom is simply divine, boasting a humungous super king bed adorned with cloud-soft pillows, luxurious linens, and oh-so-cosy bedding, guaranteeing a blissful nights' sleep. With touches of pink throughout and gorgeously dark walls, this is an incredibly romantic bedroom heightened by the glorious ensuite. Home to a copper freestanding bathtub for two plus large walk-in shower, it's the perfect setting for deep soaks after a day out exploring.

In addition, there's a super-cute second bedroom complete with bunk beds, perfect for little ones, plus an additional shower room.

Outdoor space

Step outside and you'll discover Moonstone's sun-soaked terrace to the front of the property, with breath-taking views out to sea. To help you make the most of the glorious weather, there are two sun loungers plus a dining table, chairs, and barbeque for alfresco meals.


Unusually for Whitsand Bay, Moonstone has private parking for up to two cars in front of the property.

Babies and children

A travel cot and highchair can be provided on request.


Up to two dogs are most welcome at Moonstone. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.

In the Area

If you can drag yourself away from your seaside retreat, there's plenty of things to see and do in this hidden corner of Cornwall. Boasting fantastic, unspoilt beaches, Whitsand Bay and Freathy in particular are often overlooked and not so well known by visitors, so is it a perfect, peaceful destination. Take the passenger ferry at Cremyll to Royal William Yard where you'll find lots of restaurants and shops or explore the huge estate at Mount Edgecumbe House and Country Park - perfect for walks. Take time out to visit the nearby seaside villages of Kingsand, Cawsand, Looe and oh-so-pretty Polperro. Of course, the South West Coastal Path is on your doorstep too so is perfect for walking - Rame Head is a particular hotspot.

Sleek, modern and oh-so-moody, this dreamy, dog friendly coastal getaway in Whitsand Bay is decadently different with rich, dark colours throughout offset by the epic sea views - just stunning!

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

Moonstone is in a unique area of Cornwall and the beach although a bit of a hike to get to is well worth it, just beautiful. We loved the decor in moonstone. Such lovely taste. The welcome hamper was very nice and very welcome thank you. It was spotlessly clean with everything we needed, so relaxing would stay again, very jealous of the owners.

We had a fantastic short break in this gorgeous, cosy and comfortable property with absolutely stunning views. Photographs can't do the location and views justice at all. We had high expectations which were exceeded. Would happily come back again.

This property was fabulous, we loved everything about it. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could’ve wanted. The views were stunning! We will definitely return.

What a wonderful Easter break!

We were welcomed with a thoughtful and super stocked hamper which was a real god send and greatly appreciated as after driving from London and arriving late we awaited a late Waitrose delivery that never arrived.

The cabin was extremely well equipped, cosy & comfortable and perfectly designed, with everything you could possibly need, I would say it was one of the best Boutique Retreats we have stayed in so far over the many years. We were particularly drawn to it as we have the same Bert & May tiles.

Being relatively new there were a few minor pickles, the bathroom sink pipe had come off whilst washing faces and the blind had come off the bracket. Both easily fixable. Lynda the housekeeper was very efficient and resolved swiftly.

The location and views were calming and the beach walks were really something magical, we could easily of stayed another week.

Having spent the last 3 months bed bound with long covid, it was just the break we needed to rest and recharge, thank you Moonstone for exceeding our expectations.

Easter Break – April 2022

A truly wonderful beach house with spectacular views. Everything we expected and more. Beautifully decorated and provisioned. Could not recommend more highly! Thank you for a wonderful long weekend!
