Description from owner

Description

The house at Rinsey Head is situated on an unspoiled stretch of coast near Porthleven in West Cornwall. Located on the tip of Rinsey Head, the house has spectacular views towards the Lizard to the east and Lands End to the west. The grounds extend to about 11 hectares and are largely in their natural state, growing a mixture of wild flowers, heather, bracken and gorse. The coastline either side of the property is owned by the National Trust and the house stands alone. The house is situated in an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).The tidal beach of Rinsey Cove is about 200 metres to the east and Praa Sands is slightly further away and to the west. Both are about a 10 minute walk along the coastal footpath.The highlight of the house is its position and has been used as a film location several times. It is built within yards of the sea and has views from each room that are better experienced than described. It is highly unusual in that it is not situated in a town or village

It is built within yards of the sea and has views from each room that are better experienced than described. It is highly unusual in that it is not situated in a town or village and has no immediate neighbours, the nearest houses being inland in the hamlet of Rinsey. The terrace is particularly breathtaking, built some 80ft above the sea with sea and beach views on three sides.

Further details

Babysitting can be arranged as can addtional cleaning by private arrangement at extra cost.

Children will love being close to two beaches and the house is child friendly. Some caution is required with younger children due to the location of the house.

Starting in early 2012 the house has benefitted from a rolling program of repairs and improvements. In 2012 tthe house was completely re-roofed in traditional Delabole slate, a massive project that required the entire property to be covered in canvas and weatherproofed for 4 months. No mean feat on the end of a headland in the midst of the winter gales! Following that, the en suite shower room and the family bathroom were modernised alongside extensive redecoration throughout the upper floors. At the same time, changes were made to the hot water system to dramatically increase capacity at times of peak demand! Outside, after much consultation with the planners, the two "underground" garages were rebuilt as well.

Further details indoors

A very large twin bedroom at the top of the house also has two addtional very large and solid bunk beds. The bunks are suitable for children and teenagers and are included in the overall bed count for the house, ie the house sleeps 10 if they are used and thus the total accommodation is not suitable for 10 adults.There is an oil fired AGA in the kitchen.

Further details outdoors

The garden is not tended. It is rough headland grass and forms part of the natural surroundings.

Location description from owner

The England region

This south-western county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular summer getaway. The area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Bude and Croyde filling with enthusiasts every year. There is excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, domain of the legendary beast, and the coastline is wild and beautiful.

Porthleven

Helston is a historic town, famous for the Flora Day. Porthleven is a traditional Cornish fishing town with a pretty harbour, pubs, shops and restaurants. St Michaels Mount lies a few miles to the west, occupying its own island accessed over a tidal causeway. Further afield, St Ives is a pictureque town and is home to the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum. For theatre lovers, the Minack Theatre offers an unmissable open air experience on the cliffs above Porthcurno. Activities for children are innumerable with a children's farm at Hayle, crazy golf at Praa Sands, the Flambards theme park at Helston and go-karts in Hayle. The entire list is too long to mention here!
