About the property

Spacious + comfortable 4bedroom, 3bathroom home, walking distance to the beach


Sunnyhurst is attractive, comfortable and family friendly, located in a peaceful village, within walking distance of the beach and 2 great local pubs. New this autumn, there is a top of the range hot tub for guests to enjoy- whether for a lazy morning relaxing at home or with a glass of wine after a long day at the beach. The south facing garden is not overlooked and ideal for relaxing in after a busy day exploring the area.

With 4 bedrooms, 2 on each floor, it is ideal for an intergenerational holiday, two families of four or just one family wanting space! Tastefully decorated and furnished to a high quality, it offers space to socialise and relax with a large lounge and family kitchen diner with patio doors into the garden, ideal for overseeing children in the hot tub.

More detail description:

Upon entering Sunnyhurst, there is a good sized porch.

From the porch, you enter the lounge which is a substantial 24 metre square modern living room. There are two comfortable, large sofas, one leather and one corner sofa which can easily accommodate eight people. In addition, there is a wall mounted 34 inch Sony tv with freeview and Sony dvd player. A storage cupboard under the stairs provides a small number of dvds, toys and all aged family games.

From the living room, there is a door into the large kitchen diner. The extendable oak kitchen table can easily seat 8 people, with 2 long oak benches and 2 chairs. (in addition there is a large Amercian fridge freezer and range cooker, with gas hobs and electric fan oven; a range of glassware, cutlery and Denby crockery is stored in the many stylish curved kitchen units). A small quantity of consumables will be provided to get you started such as tea, coffee, oil, spices, as well as the Welcome pack with some locally sourced products.

From the kitchen, are sliding patio doors that lead into the garden.

From the living room, there is a door into our 'North Wing' where the downstairs bedrooms are located either side of the family bathroom.

To the front of the house, there is a double bedroom with a modern en suite shower and toilet. A chest of drawers and tall boy offers good storage space.

Facing the garden at the back is the twin bedroom, with white modern bunk beds and large wardrobes. This room receives sunshine throughout the day and has a blackout blind as well as curtains.

From the lounge, stairs lead upstairs where the landing separates the two bedrooms.

The Master bedroom receives light from three velux windows, each with integral blackout blinds. Mahogany King size bed with Egyptian cotton linen, feather duvet and large wardrobes. Furthermore, there is a wrought iron towel rail and long mirror. The en suite room is newly fitted and has a powerful shower and lovely views!

On the other side of the landing is the remaining bedroom with en suite toilet and sink, hosting two velux windows. There is a chest of drawers and small wardrobe with hanging space to store your belongings.


The rear garden has a large patio area for enjoying breakfast outdoors or relaxing over a bbq in the warm Cornish sunshine. New in Autumn 2017 a top of the range 6 person hot tub is being installed, with 35 varying jets and programme cycles to enjoy, it is also self cleaning and filters the water every 15 minutes. Photos to follow.

Our artificial grass lawn is great for children playing or for adults to simply enjoy relaxing on, surrounded by established shrubs and hedges. Two small gates mean this main garden area can be enclosed and safe for small children. This detached house can be accessed all the way around and there are two further gates meaning you can section off the back garden from the front, should you wish to.

Our safe and substantial driveway offers plenty of parking, handy for those planning on bring a boat/kayakes/surf boards/motorhome etc. It also doubles as a play area too for kids of all ages, with secure gates from the road.

Local beaches:

Our nearest and favourite beach is Perran Sands in Perranuthnoe- walkable in 20 minutes- offering beautiful golden sands, great rock pooling and climbing opportunities, wonderful swimming and surfing conditions (which is lifeguarded) as well as a small cafe. There are also public toilets and parking facilities for a small daily price.

Our other favourite beaches are Praa Sands, Porthcurno, Sennen, Godrevy and Poldhu . Toilets and parking facilities available.

Tourist Attractions:

St Michael's Mount- world famous National Trust property just a mile away

Minack theatre- outdoor theatre built into the cliff face neighbouring Porthcurno beach and Telegraph museum

Eden project - 45min drive

Flambards- family friendly theme park, with museum and rides. Usually, free returns within the week is offered and tickets can be purchased with your Tesco vouchers.

National Trust gardens-




St Ives - we think the best way to see this stunning harbour is on the train from St Erth. This not only avoids the hassles of parking but the views from the train of the Hayle estuary and stunning beaches of Porthminster and St Ives are truly breathtaking.

Fishing harbours -

Mousehole- quaint and beautiful, with great cafes (Whole Foods deli) and quality restaurants (The Old Coastguard, The Cornish Range) Why not visit Newlyn harbour on the way, the Tolcarne Inn offers a great seafood menu.

Porthleven- famous for its photographs of the storms of February 2014 when the waves pounded this traditional Cornish fishing harbour, this is a must see village. Unique local shops and fantastic restaurants (Kota Kai serves great food and very family friendly) and pubs, all with a great view of the ocean.

Why Carol Little chose Perranuthnoe

Many great novels, from Poldark to Daphne du Maurier and Rosamund Pilcher present Cornwall as the beautiful country that it is, but why not discover it for yourself and get to know its amazing beaches and secret hideaways.

We love Sunnyhurst because it offers us everything; close to the beaches, great local walks, peacefully positioned just outside the village (which offers a shop, two pubs and a post office with beauty salon) It is easily accessed from the A30, being well placed to access the beautiful areas within west Penwith as well as the stunning St Ives.

What makes this house unique

The layout of this property makes it perfect for an intergenerational holiday or two families wanting to spend quality time together; on the ground floor there is one en suite double bedroom, bathroom and bunk bedroom, whilst upstairs there is an ensuite master bedroom with king size bed as well as a second bedroom with en suite toilet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know we had a lovely time staying in your place in Goldsithney. We had everything we needed and thought it was beautifully furnished. It was nice to have some space in the kitchen to store the food we had ordered! Thanks for the milk, eggs, butter and wine left for us on arrival.

We followed a few of your suggestions and went to Trehidy Country Park one day, Kynance Cove and Porth Curno and had a meal at the Old Coastguard in Moussehole - excellent food.

average rating of 4.923077 based on 15 reviews

Excellent base for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped, high quality accommodation with very attentive owners.

Ideally placed for exploring the region in a pleasant village with a well stocked shop and pub grub a short walk away. Supermarkets within 10 minutes by car.

Only a short drive to either coast and numerous superb beaches.

Multiple quality eating out options too.

Can't think of any negatives and would happily stay here again.

Thanks Carol and family for a great holiday.

Great house plenty of space & superb hot tub

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6, everything you could need for a suberb family holiday, plenty of space for the kids, then an amazing hot tub to relax in after a day at the beach or exploring. The outside shower was great for getting the sand off after a day at the beach. Ideally placed to explore everything Cornwall has to offer, Carol the owner always on hand if any enquiries by text. Artificial grass great for the kids to have a play on too, thinking we need this back home now! Nice welcome pack & everything you could need stored away in the cupboards, Thanks for everything

Truly a home away from home (but with a hot tub!)

  • 5 of 5

Lovely stay in Perranuthnoe. Very welcoming hosts who left us a lovely welcome back, showed us the ropes with the fabulous hot tub and even put out some toys for our children (which are always more fun than their own toys of course!). In a GREAT location for exploring West Cornwall - few mins from Marazion and St Michael's Mount, equally only a few mins to the beautiful Praa sands beach as well as a short drive to St Erth to catch the train into St Ives (thus avoiding the hunt for parking). It was a quiet and rural location but also close to Penzance and the supermarkets on offer there. Has all the amenities we'd want when travelling with children. We travelled with another family, 4 young children in total, washer, dryer, dishwasher as well as multiple toilets making it all very easy. We had great weather during our stay so the garden and barbecue were used. Ample parking for multiple cars too. This really was a five star stay and was somewhere we'd happily recommend to anyone. The hot tub in the evening was special treat, so much so that it unfortunately has become a "must have" in our accomodation search on holidays, really narrows down the options!! Thanks again Carol and family for a wonderful stay!

*Fantastic spacious and clean property a real home from home and friendly welcome*

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the property for one week.

First impressions were how lovely it was to be welcomed by the owner and luxury welcome pack to get us started.

The property was lovely and clean and deceptively spacious with ample parking.

The kitchen is situated at the rear of the property leading out into the garden which made this a perfect setting as the children were able the enjoy the beautiful private garden whilst we made dinner. We really enjoyed having the garden as it made fun recreation for non beach and exploring days.

With that in mind my family and I also loved the beach within a 20 minute walk of the property a real plus point for those post tea beach walks.

Bedroom sizes and bathrooms were perfect and again well equipped and clean!

The location was perfect with lots to do within a short drive if you choose to.

I would like to thank Carol for making us so welcome it was lovely to meet you, a nice personal touch and we would most defiantly and probably will book with you again.

*A wonderful location, property and owner. We would most defiantly recommend!*

Great well equipped house, ideal for families.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with 3 young children, a 4 year old, 2 year old and an 11 month old. The house is a very good size, and would easily accommodate a family larger than ours. It is very well equipped, well organised and very clean. There was very little we needed to do with regard to safety of the children and stopping them getting to things they shouldn't! The house had a stair gate, and the garden has gates which meant it is fully enclosed. Carol also provided us with a cot and high chair.

On arrival we were met by Carol and her son. He son showed my children a large collection of toys, books and games they had available for us to use in the house, which was a nice touch, and helped to keep them occupied. When we had a minor issue (a light bulb went and tripped the power), Carol was very quick to react, and popped around to resolve the issue which was great. The owner was very helpful, and let us know about the local beaches and places to visit, as well as leaving a comprehensive guide.

I would highly recommend staying at the house, and we will definitely be considering staying there again next time we visit Cornwall!
