    • “Evergreen was totally amazing, we spent a week here and wished it was longer. The walk to Praa Sands was very enjoyable for both us and the dogs. Beautiful cottage with everything that you could need to hand. We will be staying here again. Rinsey was totally magical”

    Mr Jackson, Worthing, October 2018

    • “My family had a totally BRILLIANT week in Evergreen...... it was beautiful, comfortable, with all mod cons, everything we could need indoors, and out......even an indoor grapevine dripping grapes ! It was cosy inside for quiet times, and fun to hold a party outside in the garden with great barbecue equipment. We also appreciated the Welcome on the table of homemade cakes and a bottle of Bubbly ! And of course Rinsey is a great location for a holiday, right on the Coastal Path, and with Rinsey Cove just below, the perfect beach with sand And Rockpools....... A Big Thank you to the Owners for creating such a wonderful space to relax and enjoy a perfect holiday week.”

    Ms Porteus, HELSTON, July 2018

    • “We had such a fabulous time at Evergreen. A beautiful cottage in the most amazing location only a stones throw from Rinsey Cove and the coastal path. The cottage was so clean and comfortable, we couldn't have wished for a more relaxing holiday. A real gem on the Cornish coastline. We will most certainly be back for another holiday as soon as we can.”

    Mr Ross, Exeter, June 2018

    • “The interior is very comfortable and stylish with plenty of equipment. The rear garden is small and overlooked, so not secluded. The boot sale mentioned by the owner in notes could be amplified as a selling point, as it is very big and varied, well worth going to. It would be useful if some notes could be left about the local eateries/pubs as clients have not left that info. Overall a good location, with quick access on to the coastal path.”

    Mrs Pettifor, FORDINGBRIDGE, May 2018

    • “Evergreen is set in a small hamlet of Rinsey just minutes from the footpath that leads you to the coastal path. The house is ideal for two to four people, but due to the small amount of downstairs living space (lounge and kitchen) I think six would have been too much. I think that this should be noted in your review for Helpful Holidays. The beds were very comfortable and the house clean with nice touches of scones, jam, cream, milk and a bottle of wine left for our arrival. It is ideal place for walking and touring, and we would love to return to this area again.”

    Mrs Cameron, Wadhurst, May 2018

    • “We loved it, loved the cottage, Margaret was helpful and smashing, we had gorgeous weather for the most part but ideally, feel the bathrooms could do with a little updating. Upstairs shower was as good as useless except for a dwarf, and the downstairs one was rather basic. But all in all, super. Thanks for everything. Jill Muir.”

    Mrs Muir, Stratford-upon-Avon, May 2018

Regional Information

RINSEY COVE 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.

  • Note: There is low head height on the landing (5'8" beams).
  • Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
