Beachview Penthouse Praa Sands

£618 - £1770 per week

This stunning penthouse has breathtaking views from its commanding position above the beautiful Praa Sands beach. With uninterrupted views from almost every room, this really does feel like a penthouse on the beach. Waking up in the four poster bed and looking straight out to sea, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were dreaming. Whether enjoying breakfast in the dining area with the bi-fold doors open directly onto the balcony, or sipping a drink on the balcony as the sun sets taking in the sea air, it will be a place you'll never want to leave and will always remember.

Hop in the car or on a bus and travel slightly afield to the bustling streets of St Ives only 20 minutes away. Here you can explore the coast by boat or visit a wealth of galleries and gift shops. Just four miles from Praa Sands is the thriving Marazion where you can walk the causeway or catch a boat to the historical St Michael's Mount.

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.


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.

1 month ago

Wow wow wow, myself and my husband was visiting this lovely accommodation for a celebratory week in March 2020, upon arrival we was transfixed with the fantastic sea views, once we began to explore the penthouse this was soon realised each room came with this beautiful view. The decor was cleverly matched to the open surroundings, this was a delightful comfortable home from home property that made us feel very relaxed. On the other hand the world was unfolding a reality of an unprecedented pandemic.. therefore due to social distancing this gave us both a limited discovery of this wonderful part of our country. We was well informed from the Penzance team throughout the process of booking/payments and information pack that was received prior to the holiday. I would undoubtably recommend to everyone thinking of staying here or the area of Praa Sands and not to hesitate on this as a fantastic staycation.

Mar 2020

An absolutely lovely flat with all the space, comfort and gorgeous views you could hope for. Just be advised that if your car is anything bigger than a Golf/Focus/Astra and not a high-riding SUV or similar, the parking space will be unusable, so you will have to walk a considerable distance to where you'll have to leave it instead. But that's the only caveat really, as it's a fantastic place with a very airy, light and cosy atmosphere. We will definitely be happy to return!

Dec 2019

This without doubt this is a beautiful apartment in a wonderful location. It is well equipped, tastefully decorated with stunning unimpeded views of the Praa Sands coast line. We did have a wonderful holiday except for the weather of which is beyond our control. Cornwall is a beautiful location, and the area in and around Praa Sand is amazing for walking. Places to eat in Porthleven are fantastic. Sadly, we did experience some issues where attention to detail with servicing procedures and decoration could have been prevented and consequentially for us did take the 'shine off' what was otherwise a superb week.We have stayed in other Aspect Holiday accommodation without these issues. But again, wonderful location.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We are so sorry to hear that there were a few issues that had taken the shine off what otherwise sounded like a fantastic holiday. Now being aware of this, and having contacted you to discuss it further, we are fully investigating this and will liaise with the property owner and housekeeper, to resolve these issues. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Tanya, Customer Services

A beautiful property with outstanding views.

Sep 2019

Beautiful property with some amazing views. Waking up to the sound and sight of the sea from your bedroom window is just perfect. The location is great and we would most definitely book this property again.

Sep 2019

2nd time in this apartment, very comfortable, with lovely sea views will be back again in April!

Oct 2018

Very comfortable with lovely sea views.

Apr 2018

If you want sea views this is the place to go. Great apartment, few minutes walk to beach.

Dec 2017

The penthouse is a beautifully presented apartment with spectacular views. Close by lots of interesting places to visit and right on the coastal path. We absolutely loved our break in Praa Sands and would definitely come back!

Apr 2017

We were very fortunate with good weather. The unspoilt atmosphere of Praa Sands beach, the local coastal walks and advice on good places to eat were really useful. It was always a pleasure coming 'home' to the flat with its comforts and functionality. We would want to come back again.

Apr 2017

amazing views from every room. Fitted to a high standard and very comfortable. You can go truely to sleep with the sound of the sea. Chill out any time of the year.

Mar 2017

It's so rare to find a place where all the main rooms have great sea views. I really thought the pictures online had been edited to make them look better - they hadn't! This would be a lovely place to stay any time of year - you never get tired of the view.
