Experience - The Area...

Less than a 10 minute drive from the golden sandy beach at Praa Sands and just under 5 miles from the picturesque fishing harbour of Porthleven, Banana Pancakes is ideally situated for exploring West Cornwall, midway between Helston and Penzance.

There are traditional village pubs in Godolphin Cross 1 mile, and Ashton 2 miles, and a good selection of amenities in the market town of Helston 6 miles away. Praa Sands, 2.5 miles, has a local shop, a beachside bar and restaurant and golden sands popular with surfers; there are also five other stunning beaches within a 15 minute drive.

Footpaths lead to Godolphin Hill & Tregonning Hill offering panoramic views of West Cornwall and there are also lovely coastal walks nearby to the famous Prussia Cove and the rocky NT headlands of Cudden Point and Rinsey Head. Godolphin House and garden set within an historic estate is just a 5 minute drive or a short stroll on foot across the hill.

There is a golf course close by, and the seaside resorts of Penzance and St Ives are within a half hour car journey. There are numerous attractions within easy reach including St Michaels Mount, Lands End, Flambards and the National Seal Sanctuary to name but a few.

Stay - The Accommodation...

This freshly renovated, detached and double glazed small garden studio, offers a peaceful haven for couples set within the grounds of the owners home surrounded by unspoilt countryside and peaceful rolling hills. Entered from the shared driveway where there is visitor parking for one car, a gravel footpath leads to the rear garden where a sunken patio area catches the morning sun and French Windows open to the single storey property.

The self contained accommodation in a light crisp decor consists of a general open-plan living room with a reclaimed pine floor and a skylight window allowing visitors to watch the stars at night. There is a neatly fitted galley kitchen with a ceramic two ring hob, oven, Belfast sink and oak worktop, a small occasional table with dining chairs, two casual lounge chairs and a double Victorian brass bed.

At the rear, a door opens to a fully tiled, separate shower room W.C. with hand basin, heated towel rail and electric underfloor heating. Four granite steps lead up from the patio to a sheltered lawn exclusively for the visitors use with a garden hammock, mature shrub borders and views of the southern slopes of the NT's Godolphin Hill. The owners can arrange for fresh lobster to be delivered from local fishermen.
