The property

With a swimming pool on the terrace and the beach at the bottom of the garden, what more could you want from a holiday home?


Fabulous for family get togethers, The Beach House has masses of character and sits serenely above the activity of the sands below. The incredible sea views can be enjoyed from most rooms so curl up with a book in the conservatory or relax in the spacious sitting room with picture windows looking out to the horizon. The pretty fireplace is non operational though. A homely dining room adjacent to the kitchen is perfect for gatherings to catch up on the day's events or head outside, fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco. The four bedrooms are comfortable and although space is limited in the two double rooms at the front, the view more than makes up for it.


The southerly facing garden and terrace in front of the house provide a great place to relax in the sunshine whilst children young and old enjoy the entertainment of the swimming pool.


When you can drag yourselves away, Praa Sands is a mile long southerly facing beach which is a favourite with families. Lifeguarded in the summer months, it's a great spot to learn to surf with a surf school, plus wetsuit, body board and kayak hire from the local shop. There is a great beach cafe for the post surf hot chocolate plus a pub/restaurant for those that need something stronger. Basic provisions can be purchased in the village stores and post office with supermarkets in nearby Helston and Penzance. For those who prefer to stay on dry land the village is also home to a golf course and walkers can hop straight onto the South West Coast Path which passes the house.

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.

Note: no pets and no smoking.  Unheated outdoor swimming pool
