    • “We love this cottage - so home from home - except better!! Sitting relaxing in the comfortable sun room or by the cosy wood burner enjoying a glass of wine, we felt so refreshed at the end of our break. It is going to be an annual event. We so appreciated the delicious cake on arrival,together with the milk and wine in the fridge!!”

    Mrs Richardson, OTTERY ST. MARY, February 2019

    • “Lovely cottage and very quiet. Could easily have stayed longer. A very practical place. Some updating needed but as it was dog friendly we weren't too worried. Would love to come in summer but too expensive for us unfortunately but well worth it. Very handy for all the coves around.”

    Mrs Hall, WESTON-SUPER-MARE, December 2018

    • “We had an amazing time at this cottage. Going away at the end of October, when the weather starts to get colder, means you are especially glad to have a wood burner to return to after a bracing walk. The cottage was very cozy! Loved it!”

    Mrs Symons, Gloucester, October 2018

    • “If you`re ever thinking of selling this house, please let me know! no, seriously, this house is just perfect for some relaxing holidays near the coast. especially with dogs, who are very welcomed and got their own bed which they even prefered more than their own ones. When the weather is bad you can take a book and spend the whole day in this homely cottage and its conservatory. With all its personal details it doesn`t feel like just staying in some random holiday house, it`s more like being in your own home- only at a much nicer place. Just open the front door and come home. We can absolutely recommend this place!”

    Miss Strunk, Mannheim, October 2018

    • “Great quite location. Lovely cliff walks on the doorstep. Especially liked the conservatory and gig friendly garden.”

    Mr Steyn, Tunbridge Wells, August 2018

    • “The cottage is wonderful: great seaviews, nice garden, especially the kitchen is well equipped.”

    Mr Grunewald, 30890, July 2018

    • “Fantastic holiday home great for dogs too, couldn't falt it at all, didn't want to come home.”

    Miss Smith, STOWMARKET, May 2018

    • “Beautiful cottage with an enclosed garden in a wonderful location with superb views! Would highly recommend!”

    Miss Janes, TEIGNMOUTH, May 2018

    • “Superb cottage in great location. The garden and conservatory really enhanced the stay with the fantastic views and wonderful space. The cottage had everything we needed and was like a home from home. Spotlessly clean. We appreciated the cake and wine on arrival too thank you. Lovely part of the country, rinsey cove is a stunning piece of coastline and we enjoyed many walks from the cottage.”

    Mrs Irving, Blaydon-on-Tyne, May 2018

    • “I just love this beautiful cottage! I have spent many happy hours in the superb conservatory before, and it is one of the places I am at my happiest. I love the views over Penzance Bay from the bedroom window, and the back garden, but most of all the conservatory is my real joy. I also appreciate that there is a telephone landline here, with an honesty box. This is really helpful as the coverage for my mobile (EE) was non-existent.”

    Ms Gilbert, Poole, April 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.
