Description

"Cara", Cornish for "love," is a first floor 2-bedroomed apartment perched high above Porthcurno beach with breathtaking views of Porthcurno and Pedn Vounder beaches and the Logan Rock. On a clear day you can see the Lizard point in the distance. Cara has the largest balcony of all the apartments, ideal for enjoying an al fresco meal or a morning coffee whilst taking in the magnificent views. The apartment has been designed and equipped with style and flair using neutral colours - top notch kitchen fittings and appliances add to the contemporary decor. It's situated approx 500 yards from one of the most spectacular beaches in the country and about 50 yards from the entrance to the famous Minack Theatre. Land's End and the sandy, surfing beach at Sennen Cove are just 3 miles away. The valley has a local pub, two tennis courts, and a beach cafe which serves delicious cream teas and crab sandwiches. The Logan Rock Inn at Treen is a five minute drive or a 20 minute cliff walk away.
Everyone who has stayed so far has been reluctant to leave, particularly the week when there were eight basking sharks in the bay to watch, just yards from the shore!

Local Area

The spectacular coastline spanning the southern edge of West Cornwall is home to some truly idyllic, picturesque villages and hamlets. From Mousehole in the east (where one of the county’s most impressive Christmas lights display can be found), along the coast to Porthcurno, where the world-famous Minack Theatre is located, right round to Sennen Cove and Land’s End; the county and country’s most south-westerly point.

The approach to Sennen is along a winding lane through beautiful moorland and as you start the descent into the village you can’t help but spot the white-crested waves heading onto shore making Sennen Cove Cornwall’s popular surf hotspot. With a mile of soft white sand and a picturesque harbour, the village combines a working fishing port with an easy-going surf style.

The area’s beaches are a draw for holidaymakers and locals alike and offer great surfing and safe bathing within flagged areas. A range of local independent shops, galleries, cafés and eateries are all within an easy walk along the seafront.

The striking cliffs and mighty ocean are contrasted by the peaceful countryside; enjoy both extremes or, for a totally different experience, explore the area’s mining heritage or take the short drive to Penzance and sample the shops, pubs and restaurants of the town. St Ives, with its art galleries, beaches and foodie culture, is just over half an hour’s drive.
