Sandy Beach on your doorstep
Welcome to our Website the Beach Houses
located on the south
coast of Cornwall, (4 hours from London ) have spectacular views across Whitsand
Bay, and towards the beautiful Rame Peninsula, and are only 30 meters from the waters edge.
Whether you are looking for a Luxury Cottage Retreat for 2, or Beach Accommodation for a Large Group, The Beach Houses have to be the Ultimate Holiday Cottages by the Sea.
Located in an oasis away from the main
village, set back from a small historical harbour, The Beach House leads to a large sandy beach.
The local village has both a hotel (with indoor
leisure club) and an 18-hole (SSS 69) golf course, which runs partially along
the coast, a pub and local store/post office.
The start of the Cornwall South
West Coastal Path is a mere 50 metres from the house.
No matter what the weather, we have tried to make The Beach Houses cater for your every whim..... (well almost)

South West Coastal Path 100 Meters Away
630..miles of pure magic, well for some of us but
maybe not for all, depending on how high your pain threshold is.
But whether you are
the type who can only muster a mile or 2 you cannot but be inspired by the
sheer staggering beauty of this coastline.
The Beach House is
a perfect starting point with the coastal path a mere 50 metres away,
allowing you to slowly venture out,
but with home not too far from sight. For more see www.swcp.org.uk
Exploring the Coast
Just a few hundred meters along the coast are
large quite spectacular secluded white sanded coves, in fact these are so
wonderful that its just like being on your own private Caribbean desert island (and that's no exaggeration) These are accessible at low tide, and make a wonderful addition to your holiday experience
alongside the warm Gulf Stream and its mild climate makes all manner of plants,
including sub-tropical ones, flourish here. South East Cornwall is a veritable
gardeners' paradise: dozens of wonderful gardens, large and small, public and
private, are open to visitors through most of the year, and are easily
accessible from here. These include the famous Lost Gardens of
Heligan, gardens of The National Trust and many more
properties open under the National Gardens Scheme
Spring comes early to Cornwall and, at this
more peaceful time, the gardens are filled with delicate camellias and
magnolias, for which the area is renowned. Azaleas and rhododendrons follow,
competing with the beauty of cherry blossoms and primroses. The month of May
sees the opening of the Cornwall Festival of Spring Gardens at venues
throughout the county - an event not to be missed!
In summer, the roses make the bees, and
visitors, dizzy with their perfume and in streamside dells, huge gunneras and
acanthus shelter dainty candelabra primulas and ferns. Finally, Autumn turns
all to red and russet, gold and claret and bright berries and seed heads
adorn the trees and borders. Whatever time you visit, you'll find sights to
take your breath away and ideas to inspire.
Eden Project - a Living Theatre of Plants
experience not to be missed is the spectacular and unique Eden Project,
which opened in spring 2001. The Project is easily accessible from your accommodation
in South East Cornwall and is guaranteed to leave you enchanted, inspired and
overawed! Built inside a crater 50 metres deep, the huge biomes constitute the
biggest plant conservatory on earth!
Within the largest of the three giant
spheres, (which is tall enough to hold the Tower of London) you'll experience
the sights, smells and sheer scale of the rainforest when walking around the
lofty gantry suspended in the top of the dome.
As well as introducing you to over 70,000
plants from all over the world, the project reminds us all of our dependence on
plants for our own survival and how vital it is to conserve and value them. For
an introduction to an unforgettable experience, visit the Eden Project Web site

Tourist Board website at www.secta.org.uk
The Area and the house are in a forgotten part
of Cornwall not normally visited by the crowds, yet close enough to the general
hustle and bustle of the main tourist attractions. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Helegan are
all about 30 minutes away.
