A lovely property in a stunning location, everything needed was available , and whenever contacted the owners they were very quick to respond, they also emailed personally before and after the holiday and really seemed to care that we had a nice time , thank you x Reviewed by AlisonDec 2022 "We had a wonderful week at Stonecroft, it was blissfully relaxing, a beautiful cottage with everything we needed." The views of the beach were amazing, it was lovely waking up to the sound of the waves and having our coffee in the morning looking out over the sea. The beach was so close, our dog Bella had a great run every morning before we went out to visit local towns, beaches and historic sites. After a stressful year it was exactly what we needed and we hope to stay again. Many thanks, Daryl Rachel and Bella. Reviewed by DarylDec 2022 "The property was exactly as we expected from the photographs." Everything has its place and makes keeping the property in order whilst you stay very easy. A welcome pack was gratefully received, the information folder was very useful and our phone call was quickly answered by and the power issue sorted in no time. Sue and Andy have made us feel extremely welcome. Reviewed by LindaOct 2022 "Stonecroft offers all the home comforts and facilities you need." It is a lovely relaxing and comfortable property in the perfect location for time on the beach at Praa Sands or for days out visiting other parts of Cornwall, and after a busy day of adventure/exploring, the comfortable beds and bedrooms are very welcome. If like us you like to spend time in the sea, there is the added bonus of a greenhouse where you can hang and dry all your wetsuits ready for the next day and an outdoor hose pipe for swilling the sand off. Also we took both Grandmas with us and they loved a relaxing afternoon cup of tea in the warm raised lounge area admiring the view. There is also a covered outdoor/conservatory area which is perfect to chill in on a late sunny afternoon/evening or for your morning coffee. Or have a bbq in the cute contained front garden. You're also spoilt for views at the family dining table! When we visit Cornwall, we always look for a sea view and wow this did not disappoint, perfect! We had a truly lovely stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stonecroft. Reviewed by AlisonOct 2022 "We had a wonderful week staying at Stonecroft." The property itself is beautiful with everything you could need and more! The views are outstanding helped even more by the fantastic weather. We couldn’t recommend staying here more. Also, the communication prior to arriving and leaving from Sue and Andy was lovely. The Sims Family Reviewed by EllanJul 2022 "A beautiful cottage in a stunning location." It was just perfect. Reviewed by MandeepJul 2022 "Had a wonderful stay at Stonecroft." Perfect location very peaceful yet close to the beach. Loved the veranda especially in the evenings. Great sea views and fabulous sunsets. We would definitely recommend staying here as you will not be disappointed. Reviewed by NinaMay 2022 "What an amazing place !" We enjoyed relaxing in the garden and vardana after walks along the beach. Chill out evenings in the lounge watching the sun set. Owners were quick to reply to any questions about the area. We will be looking forward to planning our return. Perfect stay ! Reviewed by IanApr 2022 "Perfect location." Very comfortable property. Would definitely recommend this holiday home. Reviewed by RhiannMar 2022 "A lovely retreat with spectacular views and really well fitted out kitchen; comfy beds and amazing log burner (great for chilly March evenings)." Great dog walking on the beach and local footpaths and wonderful sunsets viewed from the veranda (with a glass of Baileys!). Local shops available for anything urgent and Helston is only a 10 minutes drive and you have access to the big supermarkets if needed. Local beach bar is good for dinner with a view or a stop for a warming coffee after a brisk walk on the beach (and dogs welcome!). Two specific points of feedback: 1. property was immaculately clean when we arrived, so a great job by the cleaners between guest visits (made my parents feel very comfortable/safe due to CV-19 still being around and them being older). 2. the property details some stone steps with the house itself being on one level when reading the details however I would recommend that this is expanded in the description as actually to enter the property from the driveway its either 9 steps, then 5 then 2 then 1 (to use the front door) OR 9 then 10 then 1 (to enter via the veranda) my parents are both in their 70's and don't have the best mobility and they did find the steps too much so whilst I would happily visit again with friends, my parents would not be able to come back due to the stone steps as its too much for anyone with arthritis, therefore whilst the description doesn't need to list the number of steps I would suggest it is expanded to say there are circ 20 steps to access the property so people can make a judgement as none of the pictures of the properly showed the steps. Other than the steps issue I would happily recommend this property and hope to visit again one day 9.5/10 :-) Thank you for your feedback. It sound like you had a lovely time. We do mention in the description currently "Note: This property is on an elevated position with stone steps, please take care." and at present we do feel this is sufficient warning. - The Owner Relations Team Property Owner Reviewed by BelindaMar 2022 "Just back from an amazing week in Cornwall." Despite the mad weather we enjoyed this beachfront property. The house couldn’t be in a better position for the beach and is perfectly placed for exploring the area. The house is really cosy, modern and the log fire is easy to use. Couldn’t recommend more a stay here. The dogs loved the house, garden and beaches. Note house has a very light carpet so bring towels to wipe their muddy paws. We will definitely be back to stay again!!

Stock up the cupboards and American-style fridge/freezer in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, where the group's chef can whip up home-cooked meals using the electric oven, grill and induction hob, whilst the dishwasher does all the hard work; watch the waves crashing on the shore from the comfort of the dining table for eight.

Ideal for a family holiday in Cornwall, Stonecroft is within easy reach of Praa Sands' excellent amenities and attractions; take a break from cooking and dine at Sandbar overlooking the beach, bring your buckets and spades to the sandy beach to paddle in the sea, or pack your clubs and head to the Golf and Country Club. Pengersick Castle is a must-see for budding historians, with a 16th-century tower, whilst Godolphin House is just north of the village, an ancient estate with a medieval garden. Lace up your hiking boots and head west to Marazion, with paths guiding guests along dramatic coastlines to idyllic bays or take a boat ride to the fascinating St Michael's Mount, an island home to a medieval castle, Norman church and fabulous gardens. Spend the day in Helston to soak up local history in the Museum of Cornish Life, try the local delicacy at Ann's Pasties, before heading south to Porthleven. This wonderful coastal town offers a sandy beach to roll out your towel and soak up the sun, wander along the picture-perfect Porthleven Harbour with fish and chips, or Penrose is a quieter spot for wildlife lovers, a wooded area around Cornwall's largest natural lake to escape the hustle and bustle. For easy access to attractions and renowned beaches, choose Stonecroft as your Cornish retreat. Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200. View on map About the location PRAA SANDS 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).
