The Putnam Family, Warwickshire
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!
Slow down the pace and slip seamlessly into beachside living at Bodillian
Our beautifully renovated, luxury holiday home in Praa Sands. Perched overlooking the sweeping crescent beach, this is a true home-from-home, a friendly and welcoming property sleeping up to 8 guests.
The open plan living space occupies the top floor, with the blue horizon a calming backdrop. Get into holiday mode and enjoy a cold drink while watching the tide roll in from the balcony, the perfect location to catch the last few rays and take in the sunset. The enormous terrace is complete with built-in BBQ and outdoor refrigerator to store those easy-to-reach drinks and marinating meats for the barbecue.
In the winter months, Bodillian is centre stage for watching the powerful storms roll in. Bring everyone together in the cosy living room, curl up beside the flickering fire and indulge in warming glasses of red.
A mile of white sand, backed by peaks of sand dunes, makes Praa Sands a veritable escape from everyday life. The consistent surf rolling in off the Atlantic makes Praa Sands, and the neighbouring beaches of Rinsey & Porthleven, a paradise for keen surfers. Enjoy a lazy day on the beach before heading to The Beachcomber café for lunch, followed by a celebratory meal in Porthleven by evening – a burgeoning foodie destination with Rick Stein’s latest restaurant as well as the popular Kota and The Square.
