Activities on your doorstep

There are many great things to do for everyone, right on the doorstep of Bodillian. The 'Local Area’ page has been designed so that you can have a snapshot to see just what’s available in the immediate locality and a bit further away. Our inclusive concierge team and holiday planners will be able to help you book anything that you want to do during your perfect stay.

  • Beaches

    As well as Praa Sands beach being just a stone’s throw away, just around the coast you also have the beautiful Porthleven and Perranuthnoe. For something a bit more secluded you’ve got Prussia Cove, Rinsey or Piskey Cove.

    A short drive away will bring you to the beautiful golden sands of St Ives and Carbis Bay. For real beach lovers, venture West to Porthucurno near the Minack Theatre, one of the best beaches in the UK and well-worth the drive for crystal turquoise water.

  • Coastal Walks

    This stretch of coastline has history steeped in pirates with secluded tucked away coves perfect for smuggling treasure and claiming their fair share of shipwrecks.

    A fantastic circular walk takes in sensational views of Mount’s Bay and Rinsey Head where you’ll come across ruined engine houses Wheal Trewavas and Wheal Prosper – the latter of which has been used in the filming of the Polkark TV series remake.

  • Cycling

    The Cornish Way has over 200 miles of interlinking trails spanning from Bude to Land’s End. Keen cyclists might wish to embark on the First & Last trail from Hayle to Land’s End. A scenic trail with a mixture of off road, level trails and on road.

    Certain sections of this 25 mile trail are suitable for families, for example Land’s End to Sennen Cove. Contact us for further details and we’d be happy to advise.

  • For the Kids

    Kids won’t get bored easily in this part of Cornwall. If the weather takes a turn Paradise Park in nearby Hayle is every kid’s dream day out with over 650 birds and animals to see. Geevor Tin Mine is a brilliant rainy day activity stepping back in time with guided tours below ground. And of course not forgetting the countless gold sand beaches for a classic day at the beach.

  • Golf

    If you fancy a round of golf during your stay or if you want to come and stay to play golf, there are several good golf courses nearby. These include; Praa Sands Golf Club, Cape Cornwall Golf Club, West Cornwall Golf Club and Tregenna Castle.

  • Land's End

    No holiday to West Cornwall is complete without a visit to the most south westerly tip of the UK. Visit Longship’s Lighthouse and walk the beautiful coastal path to have your picture taken with the iconic signpost.

  • Local Pubs

    There are a selection of great pubs near Praa Sands. The Sandbar, located directly on Praa Sands beach, offers a relaxed coastal environment to enjoy a drink, and serves locally sourced, fresh food. The Falmouth Packet – winners of the Taste of the West ‘Best South West Dining Pub’ award is also just a 5 minute drive or taxi ride away.

    Just round the corner in Perranuthnoe, you’ll find one of our favourite pubs, The Victoria Inn. Serving award-winning food in what is reputedly the oldest inn in Cornwall. They’re newest restaurant, The Square in neighbouring Porthleven is also definitely worth a visit.

  • Pamper

    Make the most of your break with a relaxing day at one of Cornwall’s many spas. Unwind at the beautiful St. Ives Harbour Hotel which is under 40 mins drive away, or nearby C Bay Spa at The Carbis Bay Hotel. Both have amazing views over St. Ives Bay and offer treatments and use of the leisure facilities. If you would like someone to come to you, let us arrange pampering in your luxury holiday home so that you can really put your feet up and indulge in style.

  • Restaurants

    This part of Cornwall has some excellent restaurants – deciding which ones to visit could prove difficult! Dine with an incredible view at The Bay Restaurant in Penzance or discover The Bakehouse & Steakhouse – a hidden gem tucked away in a secluded, palm-fringed courtyards. The exceptional Kota Restaurant in Porthleven is forever on many foodie’s top lists, and has now been joined in Porthleven by Rick Stein. Other unmissable eateries areBen’s Cornish Kitchen in Marazion and Two Fore Street in Mousehole. We could go on all day about the quality of food in West Cornwall.

  • Sea Fishing

    If you fancy a spot of deep sea fishing from some of the local fishing boats, then we have a choice of several that you can do. Operating out of Penzance are a few fishing boats that offer either short trips or day trips. Whatever you want to do, our concierge team can organise it for you.

  • Watersports

    There are so many different watersports that you can do in West Cornwall. Choose from venturing out in a Kayak, scuba diving, Zap Cats, surfing, speed sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing. If there are enough people, we can also organise jet skis at a suitable location.

  • Wine Tasting

    Cornwall has two excellent vineyards that are well-worth visiting. Nearby Polgooth Vineyard in Penzance is a great day out. Take a tour of the sun-soaked fields and sample their award-winning tipples.

    Head to the north coast and take a tour around the internationally renowned Camel Valley Vineyard, discover their winery process and relax on the sunny terrace with a glass or two.

Just a note to say what a wonderful birthday celebration holiday week we spent at Bodillian. From an unassuming approach and entrance to the property our breath was taken away by the stunning views we encountered on entering.. The reception room was enormous and beautifully furnished with the sea being the focal point from all the picture 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. The lovely big terrace with barbecue and seating/sunbathing area would have been wonderful if the we had come earlier in the summer however we were able to enjoy the smaller balcony from the living area in the sunshine. 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 definitely be returning to Bodillian for sure!

The Putnam Family, Warwickshire

We have just spent five nights at Bodillian at Praa Sands. Totally gorgeous house. We have never had such a good night’s sleep. The beds were so comfortable it was hard to get up in the mornings. Dropping off to sleep with the sound of the sea outside was just perfect. Kitchen very well equipped , not that we cooked much with the delights of foody Porthleven on your doorstep. Enjoyed meals at Rick Stein’s and Amelie’s and a lovely lunch at Ben Tunnicliffe at Sennen Cove.

Weather was dry but a cold edge to the wind so didn’t get as much use of the balcony and terrace as would have liked but can imagine the pleasure of it on a warm summers evening.

As ever Perfect Stays lived up to their name!

The Porter Family, Wales

A lovely holiday. Stunning house! Great coastal walks and a visit to St. Michael’s Mount is a must. We saw seals and went to Coverack and saw dolphins!

The Hodgkins Family, Worcestershire

Fantastic week! Very comfortable house with great views and enjoyed some lovely walks on the beach and along the coast path. Check out Scarlet’s (wine bar and restaurant) on the Lelant roundabout for fantastic food and wine.

The Bells, Sharpes and Riley Family, London

Had the most relaxing, enjoyable and calming week here. Came on my own and was expecting the house to be too big and not cosy but I couldn’t have been more wrong! Yes it is big but so homely and comfortable. Everything you could wish for. Perfectly decorated and equipped. Thank you so much for a wonderful relaxing holiday. Hopefully will return in the summer with the family (not so relaxing! 🙂 )

Mrs McCaul, Ireland

What a fantastic house in a wonderful location. Everything was perfect despite the best attempts of the weather! We will be back, thank you and Happy New Year!

The Padbury Family, Kent

I must say, the photo’s you have online are good but they really don’t do Bodillian Justice! By far the best place the group has ever stayed. This is the first house we have ever stayed in where the rooms are all of quite similar size and with so many bathrooms!

We had a fantastic stay, thank you so much for your help.

We had a fantastic holiday, the house was all we could ask for, the views, the amenities and everything that we needed or wanted, would not hesitate in going back to Bodillian is was fantastic. We were fortunate with the weather which made it extra special!

The Nolan Family, Blackburn

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

We have had the best week ever at Bodillian. The photos do not do this beautiful house justice. As you walk into the property you can see noting has been spared to makes this a home and not holiday accommodation. The sofas are new and expensively comfortable but not overly precious, they are colour coordinated with the rest of the very tastefully finished property. The kitchen is the best equipped we’ve used, including crystal glass champagne flutes, red and white wine glasses, lovely crockery even a Sabatier potato peeler. There are so many good restaurants 5 minutes away (Kota in Porthleven being one of our favourites) so you don’t need to cook if you don’t want to. We would sometimes have breakfast on the balcony or walk down to the beach cafe. Once after a busy hot day we bought a fresh lobster (just £6) 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.

The road is very quiet and safe and it’s an easy walk to the beach but still close to the hustle bustle of Marazion or Porthleven.

The beds are very comfortable with crisp white bed linen and each has its own shower or bathroom. We had great weather all week so the huge television hasn’t been switched on once. We have had lots of adventures, the walking along the coastal path is dramatic with long sandy beaches with no one else in sight. 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.
