The property

A cute coastal bolthole within lush green gardens, this little hideaway is just a short walk from the mile long Beach at Praa Sands. Sitting within the crescent of Mounts Bay, Praa Sands is an excellent sandy surfing and swimming beach. Lifeguarded during the summer months, there is also a surf school above the beach offering kayak, surfboard and wetsuit hire so there really is no excuse to stay out of the water. The cafe and bar/restaurant at the western end of the beach mean it can be busy in high season, but a gentle stroll along to the eastern end will ensure peace and tranquillity. Praa Sands is also home to a nine hole Golf and Country Club which is open to non members plus a small post office stores for basic provisions. Within fifteen minutes drive the vibrant town of Penzance has a wide choice of shops plus galleries galore to browse.

This stretch of the south coast is home to some beautiful scenery so bring your walking boots and head out on the coastal path to discover the impossibly pretty Prussia Cove, a smugglers haunt and good swimming spot, just a mile to the west. Heading east you will pass old engine houses on the way to Porthleven, a pretty harbour village with several good pubs and restaurants to choose from.

Palm Lodge has a modern fresh interior with a light, bright and airy feel. The kitchen is perfectly equipped for two but if you don't fancy cooking there are good takeaway restaurants within a couple of miles. Outside is a raised deck which is a real sun trap and the perfect place to relax with a good book. Situated within the grounds of the owners home there is also a private area of garden for guests use.

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: Regretfully no children or babies accepted
