The Beach House is set in a cliff-top position with unbroken pan size oramic views from The Lizard in the East across Mounts Bay almost to Land’s End in the West. Depending on the time of year of your visit you might enjoy mill pond calm during long Summer days, or perhaps the awe inspiring storms of Winter with 40’ high Atlantic rollers breaking at the bottom of the garden!
The house is wonderfully secluded being flanked to the east and west by farmland, without any impingement on the outlook. The Beach House is located on the outskirts of Perranuthnoe, an ancient and picturesque village with a church and classic granite cottages beside a wonderful beach on the east side of Mount’s Bay. A 12th Century Inn (now a highly decorated Gastro-Pub) provides a focal point for the local community and there are two cafés.
Perranuthnoe is a short drive from the A30, allowing swift and convenient road access. It is just a 5 minute drive to Penzance where the London Paddington Mainline trains terminate. Falmouth, Truro and St Ives are all within a 30 min drive.
The stretch of coast around Perranuthnoe is legendary and takes in some
of the county’s best beaches, some well known, like including Praa Sands or Loe Bar, but also more hidden gems like Rinsey where you really can have the beach to yourself even in the height of Summer. There are countless traditional fishing villages close by like Mousehole and Lamorna, or a quick trip to The Lizard and you can enjoy Cadgwith, Coverack and Kynance or take a walk into literary history at Frenchman’s Creek. St Michael’s Mount sitting just offshore along a tidal causeway is a must.
The coastline is made up of wide beaches and dramatic granite cliffs, and it is no coincidence that so many of Cornwall’s finest artists have based themselves around generally its westernmost peninsula. Penzance and Newlyn is host to several well-regarded restaurants and art galleries, whilst the Filmhouse has proved a huge success with the local community and beyond. Just a short drive beyond Newlyn is the world famous Minack Theatre. A few miles in the opposite direction, Porthleven has emerged as a culinary hotspot, with several highly-regarded local restaurants taking advantage of the outstanding local produce and drawing in food-lovers from far and wide.
