The property

Situated within a short walk of the long stretch of sandy beach at Praa Sands, The Lighthouse is a comfortable apartment overlooking it's own secluded and mature garden.

It is well placed for those seeking to indulge in an active outdoor holiday or for those simply wishing to relax by the sea or walk the coastal footpath at one of Cornwall's premier beach locations. Praa Sands sits in the crescent of Mount's Bay on the south coast, close to the ancient market towns of Helston and Penzance, the charming fishing village at Porthleven and the popular seaside resort of St Ives.

The south west footpath offers a magical perspective, passing Praa Sands 1.5 mile beach backed by long grass dunes, majestic tall cliffs and a stunning seascape, where it is possible to sight The Lizard Peninsula and Penzance on clear days.

It is a popular choice for walkers, surfers, photographers, anglers, nature lovers and cyclists and the Golf and Country Club welcomes visitors to challenge its scenic 9 hole course.

A self contained resort, there is a beach front bar, restaurant, a convenience store and a surf school/shop within a short distance. The coastal landscape is mirrored in the apartment's interior, with a nautical blue and white theme reflected in the decor, soft furnishings, artwork and decorative ornaments.

Forming part of the owners' detached bungalow, the apartment offers private, self contained accommodation with a sizeable open plan living room and double bedroom and a compact shower room and kitchenette (with a combination microwave and two ring hob).

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 – 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 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.
