From award-winning local restaurants to picture-perfect beaches and fantastic family days out, take a look at what’s nearby to make your stay truly unforgettable. Our fantastic concierge team and dedicated holiday planners will also be happy to help you book anything you’d like to do throughout your stay.

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

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. 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 Bell, Sharpe 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 photos 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 – it 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 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

Great location and superbly presented property. Very high standard of facilities and great little thoughtful touches provided to make the residents feel at home. Highly recommended this property for a vacation.

The Smith Family, Kent

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. Hope to come back soon.

The Tee Family, London

We have had a wonderful week in this beautiful house – stunning view. We were lucky to have sunshine most days, enjoyed beach walks and the local area, and a few pasties!

The Hoole Family, St Albans

The perfect way to celebrate two big birthdays! So stormy and windy but we LOVED it. The view never gets old. Fab cliff walks and lovely beach. The house was so comfortable and homely. Total relaxation. Three nights was not enough!

The Zeat Kane Family, Redruth

Super stay and blessed with great weather, did all of the touristy places and had a great time; favourite restaurants are The Godolphin Arms in Marazion and Amelie’s and Rick Stein’s in Porthleven. Stunning views from the lounge patio and great accommodation!

The Parker Family, Nottinghamshire

A lovely short stay (too short, sadly) in a beautifully equipped, comfortable house. Situated perfectly for visiting local sights – would recommend highly!

The Burgess Party, Cheshire

Had a perfect week, what a beautiful house, helped very much by the heatwave. Was like being somewhere exotic. Couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate my 50th.

The Patel Family, West Midlands

What a beautiful house! We have really enjoyed the week here, we have had lovely weather to enjoy the amazing views. The house is ideally situated for the beach trips. We have enjoyed great days out in St Ives and at Pendennis Castle. The week has flown by and we will be sad to leave. Thank you for a relaxing and memorable stay – hope to be back soon!

The Lotter Family, West Yorkshire

Lovely comfortable house with phenomenal views! Thank you for letting us stay for a relaxing autumn week. Just perfect.

The Isaac Family, London

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

We have had an amazing time. Beautiful house, amazing views and such a lovely area. Lots of beach time and great exploring the local area – Mousehole, St Ives and St Michael’s Mount. Great recommendations in the Perfect Stays guide. Home from home holiday!

The Smith Family, Surrey

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

Really lovely house with great views of the sea. Sadly we picked the coldest and wettest week of the year – look forward to returning when the sun is shining!

The Bradbury Family, Grantham

Fantastic house with wonderful views. Have spent most of our time on the beach. Enjoyed the scones and cream. Thanks for everything.

The Pritchard Family, Cambridgeshire

We have had a wonderful week and were very impressed by the property in a lovely location. Here’s to the next time!

The Anthony Party, Southampton

Superb two week stay. Absolutely stunning property – sad to leave! Thank you.

The Sotherden Family, Leicestershire

Nicely appointed house, enjoyed our stay. We have been very lucky with the weather. Would thoroughly recommend the ‘Victoria Inn’ in Perranuthnoe and ‘The Jolly Roger’ to get there.

The Bawden Family, Salisbury

We enjoyed Praa Sands and Bodillian in every way. Sea kayaking was a nice experience, boat trip at St Ives I would recommend, and Georgie the private chef was amazing. Thank you for the whole experience.

I must say, the photos 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.
