Holiday Rental House
Little Cottage is no average rental accommodation. Sleeping 10 in 4 rooms, the property stands on Praa Sands between Helston and Penzance, where you’ve got privacy’s for a neighbour and the beach for a garden. The name is simply a reminder of the derelict property that once stood before London’s most lauded architect, Alex Michaelis, transformed its crumbling bones into the sleek, modernist beach house you see today. A great place for group of 11 and we offer a special rate for couples. Set over two floors, Little Cottage consists of a large open plan fully equipped kitchen and living room, with two large sofas in front of a wood burning stove.

The modern interior has underfloor heating ecologically taken from the heat pump, WIFI throughout and super king size beds. Upstairs are 3 super king en suite bedrooms and an additional bunk room also with its own bathroom that can sleep 5 making the property sleep 11 in total. We love the giant bean bag that accommodates all measures of afternoon naps and lazy pursuits. The property also provides art materials and boogie boards. What a perfect escape to a world where inspiration doesn’t come in digital forms!More

About the neighbourhood
Little Cottage is located on one of the most exceptional beaches in Cornwall, Praa Sands boasts sand so white it could rival the Caribbean and tempting Cornish water to cool off in. Located in the southwest bend of Cornwall, this mile-long sandy stretch will make you re-think whether you ever need bother with an airport again. Despite being a favourite with families and surfers, the beach is big enough to never feel crowded. And in Praa Sands village, you’ll find a general store, fish and chip shop, post office, and the Praa Sands Golf & Country Club.
