The West Country region
Set in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only 20 miles from a World Heritage Site, there's plenty to enjoy in this stunning part of Cornwall. - Scenic walking trails, a stroll along one of the many fabulous beaches, surfing, swimming, birdwatching, golfing, fishing, exploring or just relaxing and chilling out.
Praa Sands has a beautiful beach, with high cliffs on each side and huge sand dunes, the place to see many unusual birds, encasing this lovely beach.
But there's more to Praa Sands, with historic Pengersick Castle, dating back to the 13th century, walks through the old estate of Pengersick to Rinsey village, through ancient woodland and past the old ponds. From Rinsey, a short walk takes you to Rinsey head, high above the sea and down to Wheal Prosper, a mine engine house used in tbe filming of tbe Poldark Series and set up high on the cliffs, with spectacular views.
The sub tropical gardens of Bonython, Trengwainton and Trebah are superb places to see unusual and rare plants which thrive in the warmer climate of West Cornwall
The magical fairytale castle at St Michaels Mount is only a ten minute drive away. Set amid the ocean, this granite castle sitting on top of a rocky outcrop is accessible at low tide by an ancient granite causeway.
Walkers have the entire coastline to choose from, plus many interesting Inland walks, carved out by early pilgrims, saints and the miners of yesteryear.
With such a fabulous coastline, water sports enthusiasts have everything they desire. If all this activity is just too much for you, just chill out and relax on the balcony at Kerensa, or on the beach.
The high moorland contains many bronze and iron age monoliths/megaliths and archaeological remains including hill top forts. Hidden coves along the coast path can reveal basking seals and rare Cornish Choughs.
Don't forget to check out the towns which still support small independent shops.
AROUND PRAA SANDS It's said that Lands End peninsula is the place that time forgot. It certainly seems so as you drive down winding lanes, through ancient hamlets and across rugged moors. This is an ancient and mysterious land where legends abound. Having experienced the exhilaration of standing at the end of Britain, leave the many tourists behind and head for Cape Cornwall. This is the REAL Cornwall.
Then head to Porthcurno and the unbelievable, incredible open air theatre perched on the cliffs. Built by Rowena Wade and her gardener, it should be listed as the eighth wonder of the world. Catch a performance there, you may even see dolphins playing or basking sharks drifting by. Porthcurno beach is one of the finest in the area.

"Wonderful home from home"
We have just returned home from a week in Kerensa. It is a well loved lodge and every care is taken to make sure you feel like you are important to Pat the owner. Kerensa is beautifully fitted with all the luxuries you can imagine. we received a lovely welcome pack full of local produce and even a cream tea for four people. Praa sands is a very quiet peaceful site with a fitness center and golf course.We took our small dog with us. She was welcomed by Pat as much as we were. Pat meets you to show you how everything works and then is gone leaving you to enjoy your holiday.A wonderful holiday and highly recommended.Thank you Pat.
So pleased you enjoyed yourselves and that you felt at home in Kerensa Lodge. I look forward to welcoming you back

"Everything we needed.. and more! Luxury lodging at it's best."
My partner and I stayed at Kerensa for a week, it is a perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle. When we arrived we were very pleased with the lodge; it is very well kept outside and very clean inside, the interior is lovely and finished to a very high standard. We were extremely comfortable during our stay, the beds were brilliant, the shower was very powerful and the kitchen was well equipped. The lodge has everything you could possibly need for your break.
The owner was brilliant, very helpful and thoughtful. She had left leaflets for ideas for days out, restaurants and bus timetables.
The location was just amazing, in the evening you can hear the waves crashing. The large decking area has gorgeous views and the beach is only 5 minutes walk. We sat out on the decking enjoying a BBQ and a glass or 2 of wine one evening and on others we explored the restaurants in the area. There is a bar on the beach called Sandsbar where you can sit watching the waves come in from the full length windows. It was so relaxing. They also did good pub meals here. In Praa Sands there is a local shop and post office with all your necessities in which was perfect to pop out to for some milk, bread of a bottle of wine! It's only 2 minutes walk too.
We went on day trips to:
Porthleven, which is a charming little town with a lovely coffee & cake shop called Nauti but Ice.... We enjoyed some *delicious* cake and a hot drink whilst watching the waves crashing in the harbour. We also visited Marazion where we walked over to St Micheal's Mount and explored the grounds. You can eat over on the mount or back in Marazion there are some lovely restaurants or pubs. Another day we went to Gwithian beach (nr Hayle) which is truly stunning. It is a 3 mile long white sandy beach that you can walk the length of. The northern end of the beach is a hot spot for grey seals, big groups of them lay on the beach. That was really amazing and we got some great photographs.
St Ives is another place we visited. We went on a boat trip which was great fun and then headed to 'Peppers' restaurant for a meal. The food was lovely and the prices very reasonable compared to the restaurants with sea views. We also spent a day in the local town of Penzance and also a day in Helston. Both are local and easily accessible by bus. We caught the bus to Penzance for a change, they were very regular and stopped right outside the lodging site.
We are also National Trust members and they have some really beautiful sites in this area, St Levan mine in St Just was a brilliant day trip.
My partner and I will most definitely be returning. We would recomend to anyone looking for a UK break. Lovely accommodation, relaxing location and you will not run out of things to do as there is so much to explore as this is such a beautiful area of the UK
Thank you for your lovely comments. I love this area of Cornwall and my lodge and it makes me feel so good when others share this love. With so much to do and see, I feel sure I will be seeing you again very soon and look forward to welcoming you back
