The property

Westaway is a substantial detached dormer bungalow boasting outstanding sea views across the glorious sandy beach at Praa Sands. An ideal haven for those seeking a holiday by the sea, lazy days can be spent relaxing on the mile long stretch of golden sands or walking the scenic cliff-top footpaths. Commanding an elevated position with a mature terraced garden with lawn and patio areas (care must be taken with toddlers as there are numerous steps) the property is well equipped for a family group.

Offering generous and comfortable accommodation, with plump sofas and picture windows framing spectacular panoramic sea views in all seasons from most rooms, fall asleep listening to storm-tossed winds and wake to the surf of white horses racing to shore.

The long stretch of beach make Praa Sands a popular and safe family destination, excellent for surfing at all levels and patrolled by lifeguards throughout the main season, where you can have lessons and hire surf gear. Satisfy your hunger in one of the friendly restaurants and cafes close by. The village also has a Post Office/store and a gift shop. For the keen golfer, visitors are always welcome at Praa Sands Golf Club, or discover the 2 hour coastal path to the natural unspoilt harbour town attraction of Porthleven.

The market town of Helston, the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula and famous for its annual Flora Dance is a short drive away. Visit Marazion where you can rock-pool and walk the narrow cobbled causeway across to the spell-binding St Michael's Mount.

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 – 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.

Terrace garden with step take care with young children.
