Phoenix Cottage is a charming detached stone house set in five acres of secure fenced grounds a short walk from the centre of Praze-an-Beeble. Surprisingly spacious for a property this old, it retains many original features like stone fireplaces and exposed beams, and is ideal for couples, families and dog owners who want to enjoy Cornwall’s famous beaches and the wonderful countryside.
The cottage is a comfortable, five-minute walk from a favourite pub, the St Aubyn Arms, where they serve local beer and traditional pub food, and the bar and beer garden are dog-friendly. The pub is across the road from an excellent fish and chip shop if you don’t feel like cooking after a busy day’s sightseeing. There is a village shop, Philips pasty bakery and supermarkets who deliver to the cottage so you can order your shopping online for delivery the day you arrive.
Praze-an-Beeble is centrally located, making it easy to get to great beaches like St Ives and Porthleven, which are both around a 15-minute drive from Phoenix Cottage. Also within easy reach are Praa Sands, Gwithian and Hayle, and with Penzance and Falmouth being half an hour away, you can explore the best of West Cornwall without spending hours in the car.
There is always something wonderful to do in Cornwall, whatever season you stay in Phoenix Cottage. The beaches and coastal footpath are as stunning on a sunny day as they are with a storm brewing over the ocean, and you will definitely want to make time to discover the magical delights of the Lizard Heritage Coast. St Ives is a great place to browse the galleries and museums, with a wealth of cosy cafes and friendly pubs where you can refuel, and it doesn’t matter what the weather does if you’re underground at the historic Geevor and Poldark Tin Mine! The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah are breathtaking; and book tickets to a performance at the open-air Minnack Theatre at Porthcurno for an unforgettable holiday treat.
West Cornwall is dotted with pretty villages and towns like Mousehole, Bodmin, St Agnes, and Godolphin. It doesn’t matter if you get your holiday thrills riding the crest of a wave or enjoying the taste of genuine Cornish clotted cream on your scone (jam first, then cream for a proper Cornish cream tea!) at Phoenix Cottage you will start and end every day with a smile.
