Beach Break Praa Sands

 
 
£438 - £1168
Book

If you fancy being a short stroll from the golden sands of Praa Sands and places to eat and drink, then Beach Break is the perfect choice. Beach Break is a gorgeous property all on one level and only 200 metres from the beach. With an open plan living room, dining area with sea views and a modern kitchen, you will feel instantly at ease and ready to relax into holiday mode.

Tucked back off the main road up a little track, Beach Break couldn't be better situated for your main summer holiday, or a more chilled break in autumn or winter. Holiday at Beach Break and you are a short walk away from surfing, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking, literally a ten minute drive from the foodie meccas of Porthleven and Marazion, but if you want to just sit and reflect before heading out for the day or an evening meal, then Beach Break has its own decked veranda with seating and sea views!

Simply a fab place to stay. Set up a quiet track, it is spotlessly clean, with a very well equipped kitchen, great views and comfy beds. Welcome pack of cream teas and flowers was a lovely touch and very welcome. Good outside area, plenty of parking, and washing line. A warm airy conservatory, great for getting those beach towels or wetsuits or washing dry overnight, and big sofas. Plenty of room to leave boards and sandy shoes outside. 3 mins walk to the sandy, lifeguard patrolled beach, with cafe and restaurant. Start point for coasteering (we used Kernow Coasteering who are brilliant) and good waves for bodyboarding and surfing. Cannot recommend Beach Break highly enough!

Praa Sands Holidays

Praa Sands (pronounced 'pray' sands), is the perfect place to enjoy a holiday. Great surf and surf hire facilities are on your doorstep along with the coast path and spectacular scenery. Read about surfing in Praa Sands on our blog: Ten of the best surf spots in Cornwall.

Praa Sands’ nine-hole golf course is only minutes away, or for those who prefer a bit of history, Pengersick Castle is a short walk away where there are plenty of stories about the wrecking and smuggling that took place in the bay until the 18th century. Right on the beach is Sandbar, a modern and bright restaurant/bar with magnificent views across the ocean. Read more about Sandbar on our blog.

What's nearby:

Just seven miles away from Praa Sands is Penzance, a town with an eclectic mix of art studios, historic buildings, well stocked shops and award-winning restaurants. Visiting Marazion is a must when staying here, as the stunning St Michael's Mount found here is just a short drive away. This mystical tidal island provides the perfect backdrop for a walk along Marazion beach and offers an interesting day out. Helston, six miles away, is an ancient market town and gateway to the Lizard peninsula. Hayle, also six miles away, has a new, easily accessible out of town retail development together with a dramatic golden sandy beach stretching for three miles to Godrevy Lighthouse. 

There's also plenty of places to eat out at when self catering in Praa Sands. With a selection a great pubs and restaurants in the area you won't be short of places to try out.

Beaches:

When staying in Praa Sands, you'll benefit from being a stone's throw from Praa Sands beach. Famed for its white sands stretching almost a mile, this family friendly beach is lifeguarded in summer, and a great place to spend a day in the sun.

Holiday cottages in Praa Sands sit between two other desirable beach locations too; Prussia Cove and Mullion Cove. Like Praa, they are unspoilt and perfect for walking, swimming and sunbathing. Praa Sands is also a very short distance from Porthleven, a picturesque fishing village which has excellent restaurants and is known as a world-class location for experienced surfers. Praa Sands was recently featured in our blog post Sandy beaches in West Cornwall.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.
