About this property

With its stunning spaces both inside and out, and an incredible position overlooking Praa Sands, Little Cottage epitomises all that dreamy seaside holidays should be; the perfect place for friends and families to connect and unwind on Cornwall’s beautiful south coast.

Designed by award winning architect Alex Michaelis and settling on a huge private plot with nothing but its own garden separating it from a sweeping expanse of sand and ocean, Little Cottage offers a light-flooded and spacious interior, where wide views of both sea and sky are permanently on display. This is a home you can truly unwind in. Open plan living with sink-in sofas and a wood burner means you’ll be comfy no matter the weather, while the kitchen/diner which opens to the front terrace through vast sliding doors creates the quintessential indoor / outdoor lifestyle of a true beachside retreat. There are four fabulous en-suite bedrooms providing ample space for large family groups. Outside is just as impressive, with an uninterrupted vantage point over Hendra beach. And when you’re not soaking away in the hot tub or playing table tennis with the kids, you can stroll to the bottom of the garden and be on the sand in under a minute.

Located in Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Little Cottage is exceptionally well placed to enjoy all that the south coast has to offer. St Michael's Mount with its tidal causeway and subtropical gardens is a delight for both young and old in Marazion, and if you fancy treating yourselves to an excellent meal you can take your pick from a host of terrific restaurants in both the harbour towns of Porthleven and St Ives. Of course, you’d be forgiven for preferring to stay put too as the south west coast path, beach and waves are just 40 metres from your doorstep so you amble, sunbathe, explore, swim and surf to your heart’s content.

*Little Cottage welcomes two dogs. Please note that the garden isn’t completely enclosed and has a path that leads straight on to the beach
