Little Cottage, in Cornwall, is part of the Beachspoke collection of unique self-catering holiday lets in Devon, The Cotswolds and Cornwall. Don't be deceived by the name, Little Cottage is actually the largest (and newest) in the collection with 4 bedrooms sleeping up to 11 people and parking for 3 cars. Alex Michaelis is the architect extraordinaire behind this stunning contemporary build, which offers guests the utmost privacy right on the beach in Praa Sands between Helston and Penzance in Cornwall. Little Cottage is ideal for families wanting more privacy and independence than a boutique hotel. Couples can also rent Little Cottage at a reduced rate. Strictly no-smoking.


Situated right on the beach, Little Cottage is the perfect year-round escape in Cornwall for friends and family. Long walks along the coast are a pleasure whatever the weather, the giant bean bag and Fat Boy hammock are ideal for afternoon snoozes and the boogie boards are perfect for the young or those who want to feel young! Relax in the outdoor hot tub, take a bounce on the trampoline or play round the world on the table tennis table. During the summer months children will love spending most of the day on the beach which is right on your door step. Places of interest nearby include Minack Theatre, an outdoor theatre built into the cliffs, and St Michaels Mount, a tiny rocky history-rich island. Walkers will love the coastal path which runs the whole length of the Cornish coast and those who enjoy fishing can head to any of the nearby harbours to arrange fishing trips, Porthleven being the closest.

Little Cottage has a massive fully-equipped open plan kitchen and living room with floor to ceiling glass windows, which is probably where you will spend most of your time. Large sofas, underfloor heating and a wood burner make this the hub of the building and where the adults can gather whilst kids head to the TV room to play on the X-Box or watch a DVD. Upstairs there are 3 super king en-suite bedrooms as well as a bunk room that sleeps 5 with its own bathroom. Sonos and WiFi is available throughout the property. We love the open plan utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer allowing you to keep on top of the washing while away.
