  • "The cottage was really lovely and such a perfect location, right on the coastal path."

    The underfloor heating was truly great. It was probably even better than the photos indicated, so it was a joy to arrive to and we really enjoyed our stay. However it was frustrating that there were no logs or means of lighting the wood burner especially as the description said a bag of logs would be provided. Simple things, but they make so much difference ! Not relevant to a winter rental but the outdoor furniture looked somewhat tired.

  • "Another nice and quite week at the studio with great views, lovely and warm, great to see the bats and garden birds, looking forward to our next visit."

    Mr QuenaultOct 2021

  • "Lovely property as others mentioned tight to get in the gate but we managed with a 4x4."

    So easy to solve by widening the opening. Lovely private big garden for the dog. A coffee machine & BBQ Woild be a nice addition as would an upgrade of garden furniture. People mentioned small tv. I tend to agree but wouldn’t put me off. Probably the nicest property we have had so far and we’re on our 10th or so. Would go back but not at the inflated prices for 2022

  • "The studio was a fabulous place to spend a week."

    It was well equipped and we particularly appreciated all of the extra touches, even the little things like spare loo rolls! We loved playing in the garden and walking didn’t to either Rinsey Cove or Praa Sands. The private parking is great; like others gage said you just need to be careful getting in and out - but we managed it daily in our estate car so it is doable. Thank you for a lovely week.

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Not enough storage/furniture in upstairs bedroom (& only 4 hangers?! - always an issue at holiday cottages!) x

    Mrs SheldrakeAug 2021

  • "Great location."

    Perfect if you want to enjoy the coastal scenery and escape the crowds.

    Mrs TurnerJul 2021

  • "The cottage itself is OK but nothing exceptional."

    Given that there is an eight hour "cleaning" period between renters on a Saturday I was surprised that it was dusty in places with cobwebs in some corners. The upstairs en-suite shower is small and larger people might struggle fitting through the narrow gap between the glass sliding doors. On the other hand, the downstairs shower is excellent. A box of biscuits and a bottle of wine had been left for us, a nice touch, thank you. The TV is a little small by modern standards and it made watching the Euro's Final even more edge of the seat. The main problem is access to the cottage. You expect narrow roads in Cornwall, so the mile or more of tight single track road to the cottage wasn't a surprise. Facing the 90 degree turn into the cottage driveway, between solid stone walls, in our average sized family car was a challenge. Unless you drive a FIAT 500, you will have to manoeuver (very carefully) between the stone gate way to one side and the stone wall to the other. And if you decide to park on a rough piece of grass just up from the gateway, the neighbour's get the hump and plant large lumps of rock on it, while your out the next day. Some people love this cottage, but we'll look elsewhere next we are in Cornwall.

  • "As previously reviewed, on a beach -type holiday a line outside to dry towels would be useful as would some oven gloves to retrieve food safely from oven."

    Also it could be pointed out that the entrance turn is very tight between walls- we had to leave our rather long car on the grassy lane even though there is lots of room outside cottage. Other than that it is a lovely cottage in a beautiful place.

    Mrs MatthewsJun 2021

  • "The dog poo bin was not at the property, unless it was the large black plastic dustbin."

    If it is the poo bin then can a label be attached to state that is what it is for please. An outside wirly gig washing line and pegs would be a good addition.

    Mr WarnerMay 2021

  • "The Studio is a very relaxing property."

    Great kitchen, in which we spent most of our time. The under floor heating meant it was always warm and comfortable. The access to the coastal walks made for a great all round holiday with our dog. Good WiFi, and the welcome goodies were appreciated. The gates are not dog safe and are the only thing that could be improved. A genuinely lovely property that we would use again.

The property

Tucked away next to the Coast Path leading down to Rinsey Cove and mine, is The Studio, a detached cottage with fantastic far-reaching views over Mount’s Bay and west Cornwall.

Previously used as an art studio by a renowned artist, it has been beautifully restored and renovated.

Enter through large private gates, cross a sweeping courtyard and head into the big kitchen/dining room with tiled floor and French windows overlooking the terrace and garden.

Three steps lead down to the stylish sitting room which has a wooden floor and large granite inglenook with a wood burning stove.

Also on this level is a pretty twin bedroom (zip-linkable to 6' double) and shower-room.

Open tread pine stairs take you to the first floor and a double bedroom with en suite shower-room and views out to sea and across the countryside.

Outside, the garden is private, peaceful and relaxing with a stone terrace with table and chairs, lawn, shrubs and trees.

Just a few yards from the Coast Path, The Studio has fantastic walking from the front door.

The hamlet of Rinsey comprises mostly granite cottages, a cliff-top engine house standing sentinel to its tin mining history and is a short walk from its own little cove, which is owned by the National Trust.

Nearby Praa Sands is one of Cornwall's finest sandy beaches and the village of Porthleven is a real foodie destination, with interesting shops, cafes and restaurants sitting around its pretty harbour.

About the location


The village of Praa Sands sits on the south coast in between Helston and Marazion. Praa Sands is known for its mile-long sandy beach and excellent surfing conditions. There is a bar/restaurant overlooking the beach – the perfect spot for lunch with a view or sunset drinks – a Post Office and general stores, beach cafe with fish & chips, and a beach/surf shop stocked with everything you could need for a great day at the beach. Praa Sands is also home to a Golf and Country Club, from where the most wonderful sea vista can be enjoyed whilst you play. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle, the tower of which dates back to the 16th century. It is said that Pengersick is haunted, and that the ghost of a monk has been seen wandering the grounds! The house at Pengersick is rumoured to be the birthplace of John Carter, the self styled King of Prussia and a tunnel which leads from the house to the beach was apparently once used by smugglers.
