Experience - The Area...

With lovely views extending over rooftops, out to sea and across Mounts Bay, this detached, older style, double fronted bungalow is set in a grassy informal garden about 300 yards from the mile long beach at Praa Sands, midway between Penzance and Helston.

The sandy beach can be reached on foot in a couple of minutes and is popular for bathing, has good surf and there are rock pools at each end of the beach.

There is a pub/restaurant, surfboard hire and general store close by, as well as Praa Sands 9 hole golf course overlooking the sea. For a wider selection of facilities, Marazion, Penzance, Porthleven and Helston are all within a 15 minute drive. There are lovely walks along the South West Coastal Path to the famous Prussia Cove and the rocky NT headlands of Cudden Point and Rinsey Head.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Approached from a short open drive with off road parking available for two cars, half a dozen railed steps lead up to the glazed entrance doors which open into a small integral lobby with coats area. The accommodation consists of a bright and spacious living room with comfortable leather seating, a dining suite and fine sea views looking over the hedged front garden from a large bay window.

Leading off to one side is a small inner hallway giving access to two bedrooms, a double enjoying views of the sea and a twin bedded room with garden views to the rear. To the rear of the bungalow, also accessed from the living room, are a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath, a fitted kitchen and an adjacent porch with laundry facilities.

Five railed steps lead up to the fully enclosed rear garden which has a sunny patio area, a level lawn and gates to both the front drive and a back lane providing a short cut to the village shop. There is a useful outbuilding available for storage of beachgear.

Nice location with beautiful view of the sea and clear surroundings. Summertime dogs not allowed on beach 7am - 7pm, but nice big park there. Ideal for a couple or adults with kids. Rear garden also useful for dogs and kids. For relaxation this is ideal and a quiet property. Bus stop just outside is an advantage too. No noise at all. - Mr H Parmar
"Lovely bungalow in a beautiful place. Great views and a good size property. Comfortable furniture and well equipped kitchen. Had a good holiday, weather was kind to us and dogs could go on the beach. " Mrs J Ashworth
"Ocean Retreat is a comfortable place to relax and enjoy all that West Cornwall has to offer. It is especially suitable for families and guests who have dogs, with it's large enclosed garden." Mrs C Johnson
