House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Pisces is located very close to Porthcurno and Pedn-Vouncer beaches with their white sand which is made up almost entirely of tiny, 30,000 year old seashells giving the sea a bright turquoise colour - one of the most photographed views in Cornwall and a location which has been consistently voted by travel journalists as featuring one of the best beaches in the world. Dolphins and sharks are frequent visitors to the bay. Whether you are enjoying a barbeque on the patio or you are warm and snug inside in the winter, this beautifully appointed property will not disappoint whatever the season.
If you are feeling energetic, the South West Coastal Path is a five minute walk away and there is free use of the tennis courts opposite. The spectacular open air Minack Theatre, which uses the ocean as a backdrop, will take your breath away. Porthcurno has a Post Office and stores and a beach cafe serving cream teas and fresh crab sandwiches. At one time, Cable & Wireless operated the largest submarine cable station from Porthcurno and a visit to the museum to see the underground tunnels and operations rooms frozen in time, is a must. The Logan Rock pub is a five minute drive or twenty minute walk across the cliffs.
