Little Cottage


A striking place to stay in Praa Sands, the not so ‘little’ Little Cottage is one of the finest beach house rentals in Cornwall.

As the Cornish family holiday home of Soho House architect Alex Michaelis, Little Cottage has been cleverly designed with multiple rooms and features for a fun-fuelled escape.

Set over 2 floors, the beach house has a large open plan kitchen and living area with a separate TV/Games room on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are 3 sea view bedrooms with super king size beds and en suites each with shower and a roll top bathtub. A further 5 more can be accommodated in the additional bunk room adjacent to the TV room downstairs.

Outside, guests can relax on the outdoor sofas, giant hammock, Jacuzzi, or play on the trampoline, Ping Pong table and slide. A small path leads from the garden down to the beautiful Praa Sands beach. With its fantastic open space and coastal location, Little Cottage is fully equipped for a memorable family holiday in Cornwall.

Dogs:  Whilst Little Cottage is a dog friendly property, only small to medium dogs are permitted. Please note there is a yearly summer dog ban on Praa Sands which permits dogs the beach from 30 September until Easter Sunday.


One of the best beaches in Cornwall, Praa Sands has sand so white it could rival the Caribbean during the heat of summer. Located in the southwest bend of Cornwall, this mile long sandy beach will make you forget about flocking abroad for luxury family holiday spots. Instead, you’ll relish in the raw beauty that is Praa Sands.

Despite being a favourite with families and surfers alike, the beach has luckily avoided becoming a scene of sprawling crowds. In Praa Sands village, you’ll find a general store, fish and chip shop, post office, and the Praa Sands Golf & Country Club.

Things to do in Praa Sands

Food & Drink

Foodies will revel in nearby Porthleven’s local fare. Absolute musts are the world famous Rick Stein, the incredible seafood fusion at Kota Kai, and an evening of delicious food, music and wine at the waterside restaurant Amélies.


Enjoy an active surfing holiday with private lessons from Dan Joel Surf School. Dan is a professional surfer and will come to the house with boards and wetsuits.

Take a fishing trip with Mermaid trips. They leave from Penzance, and you are guaranteed to catch a fish, with a high a chance of seeing seals and dolphins along the way.
