Right on the beach is Sandbar, a modern and bright restaurant/bar with magnificent views across the ocean.

We had the best week at Surfside in Praa. The location is perfect, the house was spotless and had everything we could possibly need. We will definitely be back!

Loved it, a great location, set on a great long beach, lovely coastal walks in either direction, with loads of places to visit within a short drive, managed a bike ride from Marizon to Mousehole. Property immaculately clean and so welcoming from our outdoor adventures, fantastic break, thank you

Great house and the lovely beach is so close. A spacious house, plenty of space for all the family and the loft room was a big hit. The outside shower was so handy after a day at the beach and it was hot too. Great for families with toys and books for the kids. We had a fantastic time at the house and have booked to return next summer.

We had an absolutely relaxing stay. Every room in the house was perfectly designed so there was no worry about everything. The service of Aspects holidays was excellent. Thank you very much. We come back again!

Our week long stay at Surfside was absolutely fantastic and the 4 kids loved the snug area.... just a short walk and you are on a beautiful beach. We were a family of 6 and had plenty of space and the property owners really have thought of everything you could need 5* rating

Surfside is an amazing little gem, beautifully furnished and decorated throughout and equipped with everything you could possibly need,so spacious and comfortable we hardly wanted to go out! (There is also a fabulous surprise that we weren’t expecting,but that delighted both us and our children!) I cannot recommended this accommodation highly enough. Surfside is positioned with a wonderful bay right on it’s doorstep. Cliff top walks that I’m sure are breathtaking ( a little misty when we chose to go!) There is lovely cafe and a bar right on the beach that come in handy when you don’t want to drive out. Local pubs a few minutes drive away serve good food and local ales.

Everything had been considered - lots of nice little touches - Cornish cream tea to welcome us, beautiful little cinema room, proximity to beach, really handy outside shower, comfy beds, etc., etc., etc,!!!
