Bodillian

Praa Sands, CornwallSleeps: 8Bedrooms: 4Bathroooms: 4

Home > Our Properties > Bodillian
Slow down the pace and slip into beachside living at Bodillian – a West Cornwall beach house with sparkling sea views.

A true home-from-home, Bodillian overlooks the sweeping crescent beach at Praa Sands. Ideally located for surfing retreats, family holidays and special occasions, discover the West Cornwall coastline from this tranquil retreat. 

With a unique upside-down design, the open plan living space occupies the whole first floor. Kick off your shoes, open the large patio doors and take up residence on the balcony, while the blue horizon provides a calming backdrop. It’s the ideal spot to savour a drink, catch the last few rays in the evening and watch the sunset. Bodillian is also centre stage for watching the powerful storms roll in, so cosy up in front of the electric fire on blustery days and dark evenings.   

Four gorgeous bedrooms are located on the ground floor, three with en-suites and the other opposite a family bathroom. Accessed through the surf store, the large terrace comes with a built in barbeque and outdoor refrigerator to store those easy-to-reach drinks and nibbles for afternoons spent al fresco.

A mile of white sand backed by peaks of sand dunes makes Praa Sands a heavenly escape from everyday life. The consistent surf rolling in off the Atlantic completes Praa Sands, while the neighbouring beaches of Rinsey and Porthleven are a paradise for keen surfers. 

Enjoy a lazy day on the beach before heading to The Beachcomber café for a laid back lunch. Then make the trip to the burgeoning foodie destination of Porthleven for celebratory meals and fine dining in the evening. Home to Rick Stein’s, Kota and Kota Kai, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to fresh produce. Ideally located for exploring West Cornwall’s greatest treasures, the iconic St Michael’s Mount, Minack Theatre and Land’s End are all within a 45 minute drive of Praa Sands.

Praa Sands

Beaches and watersports

While Praa Sands Beach is a stone’s throw away and amongst the best surfing beaches in the country, around the coast you’ll find Porthleven and Perranuthnoe – both perfect for family beach days. The more secluded beaches at Prussia, Rinsey and Piskey Cove offer a quieter day on the sand, while a short drive will land you at the picturesque shores of St Ives and Carbis Bay. For watersports, take to the waves with Ocean High or Vertical Blue Adventures for kayaking, kitesurfing and SUP.

Outdoor pursuits

Explore Poldark country on foot and take in sensational views over Mount’s Bay and Rinsey Head with the Wheal Prosper walk, or hire bikes along The Cornish Way and sample its 200 miles of interlinking trails spanning from Bude to Land’s End - and don't forget to stop off for a bite to eat and a coffee along the way. For golfers, Praa Sands Golf Club is a must, with other notable courses at Cape Cornwall and Tregenna Castle offering a great day on the green.

Food and drink

Dine with an incredible view at The Bay Restaurant in Penzance or discover The Bakehouse and Steakhouse – a hidden gem tucked away in a secluded, palm-fringed courtyard. The exceptional Kota Kai Kitchen Bar in Porthleven is always a popular spot, with Amelie’s sitting just down the road. Overlooking Praa Sands Beach, a drink at Sandbar is a must, while Polgoon Vineyard is ideal for sunny wine tours.

Heritage and culture

A true taste of Cornish culture is never too far away. Visit the Lizard Lighthouse Heritage Centre in Helston or stop by the open-air Poldark Mine to explore the 18th Century Wheal Roots. You’re spoilt for choice with museums and galleries, from Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum to the Tate St Ives. A visit to West Cornwall simply isn’t complete without crossing the causeway to St Michael’s Mount, just a ten minute drive from Praa Sands.

Activities for children

Animal lovers are sure to enjoy a day at Paradise Park or Trevaskis Farm in nearby Hayle, while taking an underground guided tour at Geevor Tin mine is a brilliant and educational activity for getting out of the house on rainy days. Put yourself against the clock at Escape Time in St Ives or set off towards Coast 2 Coast Go Karting, Porthleven Spy Mission Treasure Trail or Flambards Theme Park in Helston for the thrill-seekers of the group, all promising an action-packed day out for the whole family.

Time for pampering

Indulge in a treatment or two at the beautiful St Ives Harbour Hotel, where majestic sea views await, or visit C Bay Spa at The Carbis Bay Hotel for a truly relaxing afternoon. Complete with an outdoor barrel sauna, fire heated relaxation lounge and open-air pool, the first class facilities will ensure you’re feeling refreshed in no time. Book in for a manicure, enjoy an aromatherapy experience or indulge mind body and soul with a relaxing seaweed wrap.

Bodillian was fantastic, the house was amazing - a real gem and the view was fabulous. Really happy we went for it as being by the sea made all the difference, as it says on the tin 'a perfect stay' so thank you, the quality of the house was second to none - a real pleasure to be there.

The Stephens Family, Bath - October 2016

We have had such an amazing relaxing holiday here in Cornwall with our little family! Even though the weather has been a little up and down, it hasn't stopped our fun. Trevaskis Farm has been our favourite day out and Kota Kai in Porthleven the best restaurant, with a play room especially for toddlers to play! What a fantastic house... we can't wait to come back!

The Laurie Family, Manchester - September 2017

A fabulous house with an amazing view. House has been fabulously decorated and we have had a week of lovely cosy, warm and comfortable evenings. The beach was just fantastic - and such pleasant walks. The scones and cream were very much appreciated and such a lovely touch. We had lovely weather for November - we were just so fortunate. Thank you for a great stay.

The Robinson and Tinworth Family, London - August 2018

What a wonderful birthday celebration week we spent at Bodillian. From an unassuming entrance, our breath was taken away by the stunning views we encountered inside. The reception room was enormous and beautifully furnished with the sea being the focal point from all the windows. We loved the space of the open plan first floor with a beautifully equipped kitchen and plenty of room for ourselves and our two families to spread out. The lower floor bedrooms were all comfortable with crisp linen and plenty of towels and for everyone to have their own bathroom was a real bonus.

To be able to walk to Praa Sands beach was just perfect as we had a two and four-year-old for whom the beach was ideal. We will be returning to Bodillian for sure!

The Putnam Family, Warwickshire - August 2018

Outstanding house and location! The standard of furnishing was superb - we could not have wished for better - the welcome pack was also very welcome after a long journey! 

The Hall Family, Leicestershire - September 2019

We have had the best week ever at Bodillian. The sofas are new and expensively comfortable but not overly precious, and the kitchen is the best equipped we've used. We had great weather all week so the huge television hasn't been switched on once.

There are so many good restaurants five minutes away (Kota Kai in Porthleven being one of our favourites) so you don't need to cook if you don't want to. Once after a busy hot day we bought a fresh lobster each and crab from a fisherman at Lizard Point. That evening we ate it on the balcony with a cold glass of champagne, watching the sun set over the stunning beach at Praa Sands. We have fallen in love with this part of Cornwall and best of all - I have slept so well, something I am not accustomed to.

The Kensell Family - November 2019

We stayed at the house Bodillan. Beautiful house, fabulous views. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. We all had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it. It will be a hard act to follow.

The Wildman Family, Norfolk - September 2020

The most exquisite house, viewpoint and facility. Had a wonderful week of sightseeing and relaxation.

The Resnick Family, Edgware | December 2020, Trustpilot - December 2020

Wonderful Christmas stay in Cornwall at Bodillian in Praa Sands. The house was amazing with every comfort. Beautiful views to the sea and long sandy beach. Immaculately clean and luxurious property. Lovely Christmas touches. Photos didn't do it justice, it's even more lovely when you open the door. Super welcome pack on arrival, the girls loved the Christmas treats. Perfect Stays were very professional and communicative. On hand to answer any questions. Second time we have booked with them and I will always use them for my UK holidays as it doesn't get better. Properties are really special. Thank you, we loved our perfect Christmas stay.

The Bayne Family, Hove | January 2021, Trustpilot - January 2021

A wonderful few days in a lovely and very cosy house. We were battered by gales but always comfortable. We very much enjoyed Porthleven and Marazion and hope to come back soon.

The Tee Family, London | December 2018, guest book - January 2021

Had a fantastic Xmas break - loved the house and location, all superb. Penrose Park Run - great fun. Big thank you to the owners of this house and to Perfect Stays. Hope to revisit in the near future!

The Gidda Family, London | December 2018, guest book - January 2021

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting. Easily accessible to local landmarks such as St Michael's Mount and The Lizard. We would recommend a visit to the quaint village of Mousehole. We are definitely going to miss the view!

The Pidcock Family, Leicestershire | June 2019, guest book - January 2021

A wonderful accommodation, beautiful view, friendly locals. I can see us coming back!

The Maillett Family, London | July 2019, guest book - January 2021

Ideally situated to visit local landmarks and towns. We can recommend The Sand Bar, Jolly Roger Taxis and Vertical Blue kayak tours in Porthleven. We will definitely miss the view!

The Rose Family, London | July 2019, guest book - January 2021

Wonderful family holiday - despite the wet and windy weather. The accommodation is amazing and has plenty of space. Scenery is wonderful. Seal Sanctuary, Maritime Museum, St Ives by train from St Erth and Mousehole - all favourites. Great pasties from Marazion, a trip to St Michael's Mount and all the ice cream and cream teas - excellent. Thank you.

The Williams Family, Coleford | September 2019, guest book - January 2021

What a fabulous break we've all had! Lovely beach and water. We fell in love with the Cornish cream teas and delis. Went to Land's End (wow!). The people are all very kind and friendly. The gardens are heavenly! We loved staying at Bodillian. It's been amazingly cosy, convenient and homely. Thank you Perfect Stays!

The Khaliq Family, Nottingham | August 2019, guest book - January 2021

Fabulous holiday, smashing break! Lots of time spent on the beach and exploring the beautiful Cornish coast. Will be back!

The Bing Family, Shropshire | August 2019, guest book - January 2021

Absolutely fantastic house - has everything you need. Really comfortable home to relax in when the weather's bad. Although we were quite lucky and only got soaked once! Wonderful trips to The Lizard and Cape Cornwall. Welcome pack much appreciated.

The King Family, Teignmouth | October 2019, guest book - January 2021

We stayed here to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary - what a treat! Every morning we were greeted with glorious sunshine and we even had a barbeque! Many happy memories were made here - we would love to return. P.S. we recommend Kota in Porthleven!

The Green Family, Chesterfield | October 2019, guest book - January 2021

Bodillian was fantastic, the house was amazing - a real gem and the view was fabulous. Really happy we went for it as being by the sea made all the difference, as it says on the tin 'a perfect stay' so thank you, the quality of the house was second to none - a real pleasure to be there.
