Whitstone is a rare survival of a simple, unspoilt cob and stone Cornish cottage with a part-thatched part-slate roof. Original features have been preserved inside, including slate flooring and an attractive open-beamed landing, and outside there is a secluded, enclosed sun-trap of a garden and a range of historic outbuildings.
There is plenty to explore nearby, the bustling market towns of Helston and harbour town of Porthleven offering eateries and award wining fishmongers on the quayside are just under a mile away.
The network of footpaths leading around Loe Pool,the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall and into the Penrose estate with its rich mix of farmland and woodland are just on your doorstep.
Just a few hundred metres away we have two other cottages on the Penrose Estate, The Stables
