The property

Situated on the waterfront of Praa Sands in delightful Cornwall is Sandbanks, a contemporary-styled holiday home boasting wonderful sea views and a bubbling hot tub.

Perfect for a family getaway or a relaxing break with friends, this fabulous three-storey home is the ideal base for staying in or venturing out to explore your surroundings.

Arriving at the property, off-road parking greets you, inviting you to park up and step inside to begin your holiday.

Stepping into your home away from home for the trip, a spacious open-plan living area boasts a bright and airy social hub for your group and is home to a kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

After an adventurous day out, cook up a storm in the kitchen with the electric oven and gas hob for your loved ones, to be enjoyed at the dining table while planning your next excursions.

Here, you can settle down to relax in front of the Smart TV with a cup of tea before setting off on another busy day of discovering the local area.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, floor-to-ceiling windows allow an abundance of light into the additional sitting room, where you will find plenty of plush seating for the family to enjoy while unwinding and gazing out over to the open sea, or you can even savour a morning coffee out on the balcony with the crisp sea air flowing through the space.

Back on the ground floor you can take advantage of one of two ground-floor king-size bedrooms, ideal for a multigenerational family since both bedrooms offer sleek en-suite shower rooms.

Making your way to the remaining bedrooms to rest your eyes, the first floor hosts two super-king-size bedrooms, each with a zip and link feature and a lovely light décor with pops of blue, fitting with the ambiance of the local area.

Heading up to the second floor, happen upon the master bedroom, a super-king-size with a fabulous en-suite bath, shower, basin, WC and toasty heated towel rail, perfect for a long soak after an exciting day out.

You will also benefit from a bathroom and a ground-floor shower room, so you won't be left short of places to freshen up and prepare for another action-packed day.

Be sure to spend some time in the garden which hosts a fantastic hot tub, ideal for an idyllic soak and new 4 person Suana with the sea lapping at the shores just a stone's throw away.

If you don't fancy cooking one evening, head out to the nearby Sandbar restaurant for a delicious meal with a Mediterranean twist overlooking the magnificent coast.

Slightly further afield is the delightful The Packet Inn, a family-friendly pub offering tasty meals made with fresh Cornish produce.

Spend a day at the Praa Sands Beach, which is right on the doorstep of the property and an ideal spot for an afternoon picnic in the sun.

For days out while staying at Sandbanks, head to St Michael's Mount, a tidal island which is reachable by car and home to some of the most picture-perfect viewpoints in the area.

If you are travelling with younger guests, Paradise Park and JungleBarn Cornwall is just a scenic drive away with over 1000 animals to discover within the gentle Cornish climate.

Thrill-seeking members of your group will love a day at the nearby Flambard's Theme Park where you can get your adrenaline pumping on the rides and rollercoasters.

History buffs will not be left out, with Pendennis Castle also within easy reach, you can spend a day explorong Henry VIII's 16th century fort.

For a memorable holiday you will want to revisit year after year, choose Sandbanks.

About the location


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. 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. There are supermarkets and other retail stores in Penzance (8 miles) and Helston (6 miles).
