The property

Perched on the coast in Praa Sands, Cornwall is this contemporary, third-floor apartment, The Penthouse.

Perfect for families and groups of six, the apartment is not only within easy reach of Cornwall's finest beaches but boasts stunning, sea views.

After parking in one of two in-demand, off-road parking spaces, make your way upstairs to the third floor, where this remarkable apartment awaits.

Pass through the entrance hall to an apex-ceiling, open-plan living space, where everything you need for your self-catered stay is at your fingertips, including an iPod Dock, CD player, Xbox, Playstation, Wii along with a variety of books, CDs, DVDs and games to keep you all entertained.

The sitting area rests by the large window and enjoys elevated views of Praa Sands and the sea, before settling down in front of the Smart TV, be sure to open up the doors to the Juliet balcony and bring in the sea breeze.

The kitchen with breakfast bar is situated behind the sitting area and hosts sleek, white fittings with wooden worktops and an array of integrated appliances, including a dishwasher.

Enjoy a meal at the nearby dining table as you catch up on your seaside escapades.

Progress through the apartment to find a utility room that not only hosts your laundry facilities, but also houses a coffee machine!

As day turns to night, choose between three fantastic bedrooms to rest your head in, the first one being the cavernous master bedroom with a king-size bed, with a spacious dressing area that gives you the walk-in-wardrobe space to get ready in and an en-suite shower room, another being a well-appointed, zip/link super-king-size with an en-suite shower room, and a twin room that is perfect for the little ones; all of the bedrooms are served by TV’s.

The family bathroom is further along the corridor and provides you with a p-shaped bath with shower over, where you can soak up after a day packed with coastal excursions.

Praa Sands is an excellent location for your seaside break, with the village's beach situated a short walk away; be sure to venture into the village to access your amenities in the form of well-equipped, local shops and a beachfront bar, before wandering further afield to the stunning Pengersick Castle, where you can embark on a guided tour of its grounds.

Marazion isn't far and hosts a delightful art scene, where you can spend the morning dipping in and out of galleries, and boutique shops, before wandering down to the sprawling beach or the nearby RSPB Marazion Marsh.

Why not visit Helston, where you can learn of the local history at the Museum of Cornish Life, take the kids for an exhilarating afternoon outing at Flambards Theme Park, or hike through Pigment Yellow?

There is plenty more to see in this beautiful part of Cornwall, with the South Western Coastal Path situated just moments away from the apartment, and the picturesque towns of Porthleven and Penzance within easy reach.

About the location


Marazion 4.5 miles ; Helston 6 miles ; Porthleven 5 miles

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. 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 birth place 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. There are supermarkets and other retail stores in Penzance (8 miles) and Helston (6 miles).
