Bonny Bank
Praa Sands

£844 - £2620 per week

Located just off the glorious, white sandy beach at Praa Sands, is this beautiful three bedroom property with breathtaking views overlooking the south coast. The perfect holiday getaway for families, friends and their four legged companions. Bonny Bank boasts sea views from many of the rooms, including the sitting area where you can relax watching Netflix or enjoy a games night on the Xbox.

Bonny Bank is on the 'Sea Meads' complex in Praa Sands and is ideally situated for guests who want a relaxing beach holiday, or those looking to jump in the car and explore West Cornwall! Take a morning stroll down to the beach, then come back and spend the afternoon relaxing in the sun, on the terrace or in the front garden, all without having to move the car from your own allocated parking space. Or take the car to St Michael's Mount, only a 15 minute drive from Bonny Bank and is a must see small tidal island in Mounts Bay. Depending on the tide times you can walk across the man-made causeway, spend the day learning all about the legends and history, before having a walk around the gardens and hopping back on the boat, to watch the sunset from your own private terrace. Please also note that there isn't a conventional oven, but the Rayburn, convection microwave and 2 burner gas hob offers guests plenty of cooking facilities.

June 2022

We had an excellent weekend , perfect for 5 adults and a greyhound. The house was amazing - a stunning aspect with lovely old private garden. It was a fairly cold and wet February weekend, we felt nice and cosy. TV and Wifi were excellent for an older property.

This was a unique holiday home, we loved the way the owners have provided everything you might need in 2022 and kept the essence of the period (1920s?) the house was built.

The description about the steps up was accurate, we managed fine but anyone with mobility issues should be aware.

We would love to return to Bonny Bank one day!

Holidays in Praa Sands

With one mile of white gold sand, which looks almost tropical in the sunshine, Praa Sands provides an idyllic setting for a Cornish holiday. The beach is ideal for family picnics, sandcastle building, beach games and paddling, and the waves are great for surfers and bodyboarders. Praa Sands beach is surrounded by stunning coastal walks, with breathtaking views of Penzance, Mount’s Bay and The Lizard Peninsula.

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.

Did you know...

Praa Sands is commonly pronounced 'Pray' Sands.

Wonderful property and well equipped. Bonny Bank has a lovely welcoming feel to to it and is in a prime position.

We had an excellent weekend , perfect for 5 adults and a greyhound. The house was amazing - a stunning aspect with lovely old private garden. It was a fairly cold and wet February weekend, we felt nice and cosy. TV and Wifi were excellent for an older property.

This was a unique holiday home, we loved the way the owners have provided everything you might need in 2022 and kept the essence of the period (1920s?) the house was built.

The description about the steps up was accurate, we managed fine but anyone with mobility issues should be aware.

We would love to return to Bonny Bank one day!

View was amazing, and cosy sitting room a delight to spend time in. Great location for the surfers amongst us and the rambler’s for fantastic walks.

We were so fortunate to stay at Bonny Bank for 10 days at the beginning of November 2021. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It’s location is fabulous, a very short walk to the beautiful Praa Sands beach and a great base from which to explore a lovely part of the country. Can’t wait to return, we still have many places we want to visit, though once you arrive at Bonny Bank it is difficult to leave! The Bourne’s and the Hitchcock’s

Brilliant views but difficult access steps to house

We very much enjoyed another stay at Bonny Bank!

A cosy cottage in a wonderful, quiet location with proximity to the beach and coastal walks. Even though the weather was not great we were able to enjoy the views of the sea from almost every window. The large amount of uneven steps were a challenge, especially in the rain, when making several trips up and down with luggage. A delightful afternoon tea awaited our arrival.

We absolutely recommend Bonnybanks, Praa Sands, location wise it is absolutely the best just a short walk to the beach, good luck with the Rayburn cooker, it can be mastered tho in time.

Great experience all round, from booking to the stay. ?? we had to leave but hope to return.

A stunning place to stay,with amazing views. If you are lucky to have nice weather, the outside seating has even more amazing views. Local stores stock homemade Cornish pies which are delicious. If you get nice weather, this is the best place to stay if you like 'al fresco' living.

Bonny Bank is a magical place. Cute house, very cosy, beautiful garden and the most amazing view on the sea. Having this beautiful beach a few steps away from the house felt really special. We also appreciated finding scones and a bottle of Prosecco at our arrival, this was a nice little extra. We were already considering coming back again before leaving! Note that there is not much at walking distance in terms of groceries or restaurants but this is also why the place is so quiet and refreshing.

Bonny Bank is well and correctly described by Aspects, although the information folders need updating. The location and views are truly stunning and the chalet bungalow is well equipped and comfortable. The garden is also a delight, with colour even in September. There is also good parking for 2 cars, but do note what Aspects say about the 28 steps – some of them are steep and there is no hand rail. The approach road is also narrow, partly because the foliage is overgrown. Being on the coastal footpath and a very short distance from the lightly used end of Praa Sands beach are other great benefits and the agents were attentive to the queries we raised with them.

For local eateries about 10 minutes away on the main road we recommend the Lion and Lamb at Ashton (dog friendly if you ring first) and the Queens Arms at Breage. KC’s Fish & Chips at Rosudgeon are great – you need to book a slot by phone after 3pm. For a Sunday roast go to the Victoria Inn at Perranuthoe.

We had a lovely holiday and recommend the property.

This was a truly special cottage. The views from the patio and almost every room in the house were as spectacular as they look in the photos. The cottage was built in the 1920’s as one of the first holiday cottages in Praa Sands and it retains much of its original charm and character and yet has been modernised and decorated so tastefully and cozily.

The garden was also a really lovely space, with its slightly quirky design, and even in early September it was filled with lots of colour and interest. It was a beautiful place just to sit and be calm.

The beach is literally a 5 minute walk from the house and is a great place for playing, walking, swimming, paddle boarding and the occasional surfing. In our week we only had two days of waves suitable for body boarding, and even those were a little puny, but bodyboarding in the sun in an empty sea is always enjoyable! The warm outdoor shower, wooden shelter next to the shower and drying frame over the Rayburn makes this cottage perfectly set up for enjoying the sea!

And as if that isn’t enough there are stunning coastal walks in both directions, with the coastal path running along the tiny road at the bottom of the garden path.

We had a wonderful time here and were incredibly lucky with the weather, but this cottage would be wonderful whatever the weather. There are so many interesting places to explore within a short drive . On our one wet day we went to St. Ives and had the best burgers we’ve ever eaten in ‘The Hub’ on the harbour side!

This is a beautiful, quiet cottage in stunning surroundings and comes with our highest recommendations - and our young people really appreciated the excellent WiFi too!

Without doubt, the best rental we have ever stayed in. What's not to like about a very well appointed property that is clean, cosy and is accompanied by the most amazing views.

It is located in a quiet area and you can be on the beach in under 5 minutes, which even in school holidays never seems to get stupidly busy.

The nearby village of Porthleven (a short drive away) is handily placed, where you can get pretty much everything you will need to eat/drink.

This was our second visit to Bonny Bank and I have no doubt that we will visit again soon.

Location location location!

Fabulous place for walks, sea and surf. Spectacular sunsets.

We all slept like babies to the sound of the sea. Bonny Bank is comfy and full of character. Highly recommended.

Aspect holidays were very helpful with all the last minute questions.

I have previously reviewed Bonny Bank, nothing further to add. A stunning house in a perfect location.

We were upgraded to this holiday home when our actual booking in Newlyn became unavailable. Bonny Bank is without doubt the most wonderful cottage that we have stayed in, in over thirty years of visiting Cornwall. A homely and beautifully appointed and equipped house in the most stunning of beachside Cornish locations. If only we could affoird to stay here regularly ...!

I think the ground floor bedroom bed should be changed around to have the benefit of sea views and sky
