The property

Within a five minute drive of sandy Praa Sands beach, this beautifully presented barn conversion with pretty country garden makes the perfect retreat for a family or gathering of friends, snuggled in a picturesque hamlet setting with absolute style and comfort guaranteed. Praa Sands is almost on the doorstep, with restaurant/beach bar and surf school, a popular watery haven for swimmers and sun-seekers. Golfers can enjoy a game on the 9 hole course and ramblers will delight at the seascapes viewed from the coastal footpath.

Eldertree boasts stylish reverse level accommodation with a haven of lofty ceiling and beams. The welcoming sitting room on the first floor has a cosy wood burner. Cook up a storm on the Range in the oak crafted kitchen and gather around the generous dining table with a cream tea or pasty. After the day's adventures enjoy a soak or shower in one of the three bathrooms and recline in the comfy bedrooms; the master bedroom has a door to the patio and pretty, private, enclosed garden with a sunshiny lawn, ideal for children to play, barbecues or a glass of Merlot.

Eldertree sits in leafy Trescowe, just minutes from the stunning Cornish south coast. The colourful harbour town of Penzance is a 20 minute drive away and the market town of Helston is even closer for all provisions. Marazion, with its stretch of sandy beach around Mounts Bay has a myriad of galleries, gift shops, cafes and traditional inns. St Michael's Mount, reached by foot across the cobbled causeway or ferry boat at high water makes for a great days exploration. This part-time isle has a dinky harbour and gardens leading to the fortress at the peak. Cream teas, pasties and refreshments can be savoured whilst watching kite-surfers ride the waves. Visit St Ives on the Atlantic coast, a hot spot resort with excellent eateries, boutiques and galleries or explore the dramatic landmark attraction of Land's End.

About the location

PRAA SANDS

Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks – a Post Office and general stores, beach cafe with fish & chips, and a beach/surf shop stocked with everything you could need for a great day at the beach. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birth place of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers.
