Wheal Call Cape Cornwall

 
 
£440 - £1167
Book

This whitewashed granite cliff-top house is a perfect holiday escape. The charm offered by this rustic and characterful home, with exposed beams, wooden floors, granite walls and woodburning stoves will enchant you almost as much as the view. Bring your binoculars as you will spend hours surveying Porthledden Bay and the Atlantic. The remote location prevents a signal for phones or a TV so leave your gadgets behind and return to the simple pleasures of life. Situated minutes from the coastal path, the old tin mines and the Kenidjack Valley.

Wheal Call is ideally positioned to explore the westernmost areas of Cornwall, the walks in the area are superb, however the garden does drop away quite steeply onto heathland so watch them carefully.

Cape Cornwall Holidays

Dogs are welcome all year round at Cape Cornwall, and an array of outdoor pursuits including clifftop walking, cycling, swimming and golfing, make it perfect for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors. Self catering holidays in Cape Cornwall are ideal for those looking to relax in a secluded area of West Cornwall.

A brief history

Cape Cornwall is the only Cape so called in England. Up until the 18th century, it was thought that Cape Cornwall was the most westerly point in Britain, until accurate surveying found Land's End to be slightly further West. Cape Cornwall was bought by H.J.Heinz and given to the National Trust in 1987. You will find the ruins of St. Helen’s Oratory here along with a National Trust Car Park and National Coastwatch lookout. Like the lighthouse, Coastwatch plays a vital role in the safety of shipping. Read about the history of the area on our blog: West Penwith - Through the ages.

Things to do

Priest Cove
The popular rocky beach at Priest Cove has a small, man-made tidal pool, which makes a safe place for children to swim and the dog friendly beach makes it an ideal place for a family day out. Priest’s Cove looks out towards the Brisons, where an annual swim from Brisons into Priest’s Cove takes place. The Brisons rock formation, just off the beach is said to resemble Charles De Gaulle in the bath!

Cape Cornwall Golf Course
A par 69 challenge on a natural course ranging across farmland and cliffs with a mix of challenging holes. 
Read more on our blog post about Golf Courses in West Cornwall.

Ride the Open-Top Bus
If you want to give your feet and legs a rest, you can hop on the No 300 Bus, known as the open-top. The double decker trundles through high-hedged Cornish roads. It goes on a circular route around West Penwith. It's easy to hop on and to hop off. Don't forget that sunscreen!!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

August 2018

This is it! There really isnt another place like it. Stunning views. The best in Cornwall. Unbeatable.

June 2018

Wheal Call is a great place with its unique location on a cliff and breathtaking views of Cape Cornwall and the sea. The house inside is really nice too with two fireplaces and a delivery of wood during our stay, so that we always felt nice and comfortable. The beds are comfortable too and the house is well equipped with cooking facilities, a big fridge and freezer. The bathroom seems to have been recently refurbished and is in very good condition. Our main reason for booking it was its great location.

May 2018

What a wonderful cottage with stunning views at the most beautiful location you can get for a holiday ! We are highly excited and overwhelmed! What a feeling to be there, we can't believe it and can't get enough.

We loved it to start the walks on the coast path from the doorstep and to be even so closed to the charming St. Just with the lovely Star Inn Pub and the amazing church and service there.

Wheal Call at Cape Cornwall is a truly magical place !!!

May 2018

Any of the above comments Excellent service. Fantastic cottage in the most wonderful location. Thank you for another super holiday. We'll be returning again next year. Best wishes Andrew Slegg

April 2018

Nothing quite beats being so close to the sea. The cottage and the situation is quite unique. I cannot imagine there is anywhere in the UK that can compare with Wheal Call.

December 2017

My fifth year at Wheal Call Cottage.....already booked for 2018&2019 !!!!! The views are stunning. It is so wonderful to walk along the coast to see the white cottage in the hillside knowing that that's 'home' for the week!! It takes my breath away. There is no place like it in the whole of Cornwall. It's an 11/10 !!!!

September 2017

The cottage is very cosy with excellent views of the coast and surrounding places of interest ie Cape Cornwall and the Kendijack Castle. Take a good pair of binoculars as there are seals in the bay, and Perrigrin Falcons, buzzards all fly over the cottage and in the Kendijack valley. It is a place of outstanding beauty.
