    “Our second trip to Kensa did not disappoint.”

    Even more facilities included this trip. Lovely and clean, light and airy. We came last year with our doggo and was expecting our first child and was lucky enough to return, this year, with our 8-month-old son for his first holiday. We love it so much we want to make it our annual trip to Cornwall. We recommend it to anyone looking to stay in and our parents have now booked in for October. Already looking forward to returning next year.

The property

St Day 1 mile.

Resting on the outskirts of Carharrack, near the amenities of St Day in Cornwall is Kensa, a contemporary, single-storey dwelling.

Set near a host of shops, pubs and eateries, and a short car journey from the shoreline, Kensa offers an idyllic base for a family break, complete with an enclosed patio with hot tub, countryside views, and an open-plan living space; four guests and three furry companions are welcomed.

Park up off-road and head indoors, firstly reaching the living space, where you can prepare meals in the sleek kitchen, dine as a four, and unwind on the plush sofas with a Smart TV for light entertainment.

Spend sunny days in the suntrap patio, where you'll also locate the indulgent hot tub, perfect for soaking the evenings away after a day of adventure.

Prepare for bed in the spacious bathroom, complete with both a bath and a shower over, before selecting between two double bedrooms; one of which enjoys views of the front lawn.

Awaken to explore the area, stocking the fridge by visiting a nearby convenience store, or fulfilling your self-catering needs by dining out at The Star Inn, Vogue, or the St Day Inn.

Enveloping the area, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to rural landscapes, with both the Bissoe Valley Nature Reserve and the Kennall Vale Nature Reserve ready to explore.

Travel to the shoreline and the St. Agnes Heritage Coast, offering the chance to stroll along Porthtowan Beach, or continue further afield to Portreath Beach, with the breath-taking Carvannel Downs walking trail, and Tehidy Park Golf Club nearby for further leisure activities.

Round off your trip with a tour of the Royal Cornwall Museum, set near Truro River, or head to the peak of the county, the bustling town of St Ives, to discover the Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, and further golden terrain at Porthgwidden Beach.

Experience all of this at Kensa.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

ST DAY

Porthtowan 5 miles; Portreath 6 miles; Truro 7 miles; St Ives 20 miles; Falmouth 10 miles.

St Day was originally named after the little known Saint Day or Dye (better known in Brittany). The village now has a pub and convenience store, as well as a granite, gothic-style church dating back to 1828. Six miles away is the popular village of Portreath which attracts visitors from around the world with its wild and rugged coastline. High cliffs, secluded coves and sandy, surf-washed beaches typify the area while all around are reminders of the area's rich industrial heritage. Portreath offers a small fishing harbour, shops, a number of pubs, three cafés and a Chinese takeaway, while its safe, sheltered sandy beach is a popular attraction. For a great day out, visit the cathedral city of Truro with its cobbled streets, shopping centre, theatre, museum and great restaurants, just 7 miles away, or travel a few miles along the coast to Gwithian and follow the vast expanse of sandy beach, which leads down to Hayle and on to St Ives. A delightful holiday location.
