The property

Situated just a short stroll from the beach and the south west coastal foot path in Praa Sands, Sea Drift is an excellent choice for families and couples seeking comfort and relaxation beside the sea. One of Cornwall's premier resorts, this sought-after village nestles in the crescent of Mount's Bay, described as one of the most beautiful bays in the world. With seasonal lifeguard patrol, the long stretch of sandy beach faces south and is backed by grassy dunes, flanked by tall cliffs and reveals rock pools at low tide where children will have fun exploring the marine habitat. It is attractive to surfers and there is a water sports school on the shores offering tuition/equipment hire. More genteel pursuits are accessible with Praa Sands 9 hole golf course and its National Trust protected landscape is popular among nature-lovers and walkers. There is a beach front cafe/bar/restaurant and post office/convenience store within walking distance.

The coast path stretches in either direction tracing its way through a Mediterranean atmosphere past Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe, Marazion (complemented by the castle topped isle of St Michael's Mount) and Penzance to the west. The charming fishing village of Porthleven and the ancient market town of Helston, also the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, are located a short distance to the east.

Sitting in an elevated position at the head of a no-through lane, the ocean views from Sea Drift provide guests with a constant connection to the coast. Adjoining the owners' residence yet offering a high degree of privacy, the accommodation is spacious and presented to a high standard with leather settees, original artwork and a well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms open onto an attractive private area of the coastal garden (approached by two steps). There is parking for one car.

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.
