St Breca Prussia Cove

£499 - £1465 per week

St Breca is a stunning timber framed house with parking, a huge terrace and sea views. St Breca is Cornish for 'unique' and this property is certainly that! Furnished beautifully by the Owners, this gorgeous property is bursting with luxury living. Bi-fold doors lead out from the spacious open-plan reception room to the large veranda where you can enjoy a glass of wine, taking in the mesmerizing views. St Breca is perfect for either a family or two couples as both bedrooms offer super king beds and a luxury bathroom.

Stay here and you are a ten minute walk from Prussia Cove, a hidden Cornish gem! This tiny cove owes its name to John Carter who lived here, who was a notorious smuggler in the late 18th Century. Enjoy a day on the beach or join the South West Coast Path which is virtually on your doorstep. After a busy day making memories you can return to St Breca, jump under the hot outside shower and wash the day's sand away. Light up the BBQ and fire pit and settle down for the evening whilst watching the sun slowly set. St Breca really is a calm and relaxing base to explore West Cornwall and its many sights and attractions.

Such a beautiful house in a lovely location, with good (but quite steep) access to the coast path. It was warm and comfortable, especially when it was stormy outside, and when it was sunny, it was great to sit outside on the roomy verandah in December staring idly at the stunning view of the Lizard. We particularly loved all the books being everywhere - it immediately felt like home.

This is a beautifully designed home - it was great for two couples with the two good sized bedrooms at opposite ends of the house providing privacy when you want it, and having a great communal space with loads of space for cooking, eating or just looking at the view. We all went away plotting ways to build a similar house, but it would be really difficult to find a site as beautiful as St Breca!

Prussia Cove Holidays

Surrounded by farmland, Prussia Cove is a particularly attractive and sheltered section of the South West Coast Path, situated to the East of Mounts Bay, and providing an ideal location to relax in peace. However, stay at Prussia Cove and you won't be far from the hustle and bustle of the harbour towns of Marazion and Penzance, and you'll be just a stone's throw from the stunning St Michael's Mount.  With the little coastal villages of Perranuthnoe and Praa Sands either side, there's plenty to explore. For other beaches in the area, check out our blog post on sandy beaches in West Cornwall.

Although the beach is a half mile walk from the car park, you'll be rewarded when you get there, with a beautifully secluded beach and an excellent snorkelling location.

The beach is also dog-friendly all year round, making it great for holidays with your furry companion. 

Foragers can take advantage of the rare, but thriving wild cabbage in Prussia Cove! For those looking to learn more about this ever-popular past time, check out our blog on Wild Food Walks in Cornwall. 

History of Prussia Cove

Prussia Cove is well known for its smuggling trade in the 18th century.  This secluded area was home to John Carter; one of the UK's most notiorious and successful smugglers. The 'King of Prussia' as he was known, was famous for breaking into revenue premises to steal the goods that had been seized from him. 

Prussia Cove was also a popular fishing area, with evidence of old fishing huts built into the cliff face. Fishing is Prussia Cove continues to this day, albeit on a much smaller scale.

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.

Our second visit to St Breca and just as lovely as ever

Oct 2019

St Breca is a delightful holiday home, beautifully designed to maximise the views of the countryside and sea nearby and equipped to a high standard. The facilities on site are the best we have experienced and highly recommend. The proximity to Penzance, St Ives, St Michaels Mount and Lands End mean the property is a great base to explore the area without having to travel far. The veranda was a lovely place to enjoy the views and be able to watch our boys playing in the enclosed garden - the cricket and boules sets were an added bonus.

Aug 2019

This is one of the best holiday properties we have ever stayed in and we certainly hope and intend to return. We really appreciated the attention to detail and flair with which it had been designed, decorated and equipped.

The location is great too - peaceful but only a 20 minute walk from the beach in one direction or a good family-friendly pub in the other, and a short short drive to top holiday places like St Michael's Mount and Porthleven. The local beach at Kenneggy Cove is relatively quiet and very good for body boarding, snorkelling, rock pooling, dams and sand castles. However the path down to the coast path is narrow and steep in parts and turns into a muddy stream in the rain so requires appropriate footwear. You should also be aware that there is no lifeguard cover.

Jul 2019

We fell in love with St. Breca the moment we stepped in this lovely place. Gorgeous seaview, lovely decorated, nice fireplace, beautiful plants and flowers all around the cottage. Its a good location for exploring Cornwall with a good pub nearby. We do really recommend St. Breca.

Jun 2019

This is our 4th stay at St Breca and we have no doubt this is one of the best locations we have stayed at both for comfort, peace and quiet and relaxation. It is also perfect for the coast and wonderful walking trips. Seem to appreciate it more every time we come.

Jun 2019

Do scramble down to the coastal path, 10 minutes down, 13 back, this gives you access quickly to Prussia cove and beyond to Kennegy sands (check the tide for that day). Bessy's Cove (smuggling) and Perranuthnoe further along. Going the other way Praa Sands, great beach, loos, food, and surfing if you are so inclined. The very good garage/shop on the nearby A39 for everything from wood to biscuits. Get up early and don't walk close to the windows to catch the wildlife and birdlife. Enjoy the ever changing view.

May 2019

Our brief was a winter break with log fires, and quiet walks. Cottage did not disappoint - built to a high standard with oak beams and floors and under floor heating, generally well equipped (we ate ready meals about half the time), comfortable, comfy beds, and plenty of hot water. Great location near the coastal path, and easy access to Penzance / Helston main road. Would love to see the garden in spring and summer.

Feb 2019

Amazing base for a holiday in this part of Cornwall. The veranda is the perfect place for a leisurely breakfast or just to relax with a glass of wine after a day of hiking or sightseeing.

The kitchen is well equipped, the lounge area comfortable and welcoming, the beds and bedrooms are lovely and the view to the sea is the cherry on the cake. This is a stylish property and has everything you could possibly need.

Peaceful and quiet, we didn't want to leave!

Sep 2018

A stunning cottage with stunning views. So comfortable and welcoming and very peaceful which was just what we needed after a traumatic year for us.

A truly stunning house with a fabulous view of the sea. Snuggled up playing cards, with the fire crackling in the background, was heaven. Great location for beaches, shops and very warm. The children loved staying here too!
