Praa Sands is a small coastal village nestling in a sheltered valley overlooking the magnificent Mounts Bay. A perfect base for a family holiday situated close to the port of Penzance, Helston, Falmouth and the Lizard Peninsula. Perhaps that is why many people return year after year.

Carolyn's Cottage is a unique detached 3 bedroom well equipped property overlooking Praa Sands beach and described as 'quirky' due to its unusual interior layout and original features. The double and twin bedrooms are adjacent to the dining/lounge area at the front of the property with direct view to the beach. There is an enclosed patio/garden area at the front with dining table and large BBQ with parking for two vehicles at the rear. You have direct access to the mile long beach popular with swimmers and surfers. Children love to explore the rock pools for crabs and fish and enjoy building dams and sand castles where the stream joins the beach. RNLI Lifeguards patrol the beach Easter to October. Seals, dolphins and basking sharks are regular visitors to the bay. Enjoy a good stroll along the beach and take advantage of the facilities on offer. Be adventurous and hire a wet suit, surfboard, body board, stand-up paddle board or kayak from Stones Reef Surf Shop and discover the secluded tiny beaches and caves just beyond Hoe Point. Perhaps enjoy 'Breakfast on the Beach' at the renowned Beachcomber Café or relax in the evening at the Sand Bar pub and enjoy one or two drinks in the knowledge that you are within short walking distance of your cottage. Take an invigorating walk along the coastal footpath adjacent to the cottage and watch the cormorants as they dive into the sea at break-neck speed or stand on the rocks wings spread out to dry. The coastal path will take you to the historic port of Porthleven Eastward or Marazion where you can view St Michael's Mount or walk across the footpath at low tide. There is a nine-hole golf course five minute drive away. Open air swimming pool on the sea front in Penzance. Well behaved pets welcome with property owners consent. Dogs are banned from the beach from 8am. to 7pm from Easter day until 1st October.
