The Flower House is set within the grounds of the owner’s family home but is located at the back of the plot and is totally separate and extremely private, it is a comfortable and tastefully furnished property with a private garden and a terraced patio to the side which benefits from sunshine all day. The Flower House is an easy walk to the coastal village of Praa Sands, with local shop, beach café and restaurant and the must visit R&J supplies, a warehouse shop selling everything from wet suits, body boards, beach games to soft furnishings and extraordinary Christmas decorations (even in August!) The property is equidistant between the stunning Lizard peninsular and the rugged Lands End; within 15 minutes of Penzance, Helston, St Ives and Hayle. Slightly further afield are the larger towns of Truro and Falmouth, or visit the Scilly Isles accessed from Penzance by ferry or Lands End Airport by plane. The Flower House an ideal base for touring the whole of West Cornwall.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our weeks stay at the Old Haybarn was lovely. Very central location and lots of activities for those with kids. We took in the Eden Project, Poldark Mines, Dairyland, Callestick Farm and Padstow. Also enjoyed the beaches at Godrevy and Perranporth. The fishing trip up in Padstow was a firm favourite. The accommodation was well equipped and very comfortable. Thank you

Good location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was tiny but comfortable for 2 of us. The location was perfect for us - started coastal path walks from the house to St Michael's Mount and in the other direction to Mullion Cove. Easy drive to St Ives, Porthcuron etc. Fresh seafood available from Newlyn. The Wifi was very weak and slow, it needs to improve in order to advertise Internet Access. The owners were very helpful.

A lovely house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We've spent a lovely week in the Flower House, a home away from home. It's a lovely decorated, cosy and confortable house with everything needed. We cooked our breakfast and dinner everyday,easily, the beds are really comfortable. We have also enjoyed the sun during our stay. Pauline is adorable, she welcomed us on arrival making sure we were fine and say goodbye when we left. The cornish cream tea was really enjoyed by all the family.

We highly recommend the Flower House to everyone. It's a perfect place to visit South West Cornwall or simply enjoy the beach, whatever you like.

We came for Cornwall, we'll be back for the Flower House.

Fantastic week - beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying at The Flower House. It's ideally located - a very short drive to most of the major surf beaches and towns. The cottage itself was beautiful - very well equipped, spotlessly clean and very cosy. Bob & Pauline made us feel very welcome. We couldn't have asked for more from our week in Cornwall and will be rushing back!

Lovely cosy cottage, could not ask for more..

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive the warm welcome from Pauline and Bob to saying goodbye, you could not ask for more, the cottage is cosy and so clean, well equipped, and very comfortable. the location is fantastic for touring around and Praa Sands beach just on your doorstep. Super tip on catching the train from St Erth into St Ives and a comprehensive information pack in the cottage, thank you for the lovely welcome pack and the selection of toys for our son to play with whilst there (Pauline, Lion did come home, but he is very loved!- thank you) Worth taking a trip into Porthleven as there are some fantastic restaurants, we can recommend Ameilies Smokehouse (fantastic dressed crab, local produce and great menu for kids) and in St Ives The Cornish Deli (3 Chapel Street) warm welcome and fantastic food...... Overall one of the best holidays and cottage we have had and hope to return next year, feeling home sick for Cornwall already .... Thank you again!

Praa Sands

There are so many attractions within easy driving distance of Praa Sands including: Minack Theatre, a stunning out-door theater built into the cliffs at Porthcurno. St Michaels Mount. This is truly unique; a tiny, rocky island filled with astonishing history and natural beauty, yet still a living, working community of people. Activities include: Walking. The coastal path runs the whole of the Cornish coast, so you are never far from a footpath. Fishing. You can arrange fishing trips from many of the harbors in the area, the closest being Porthleven. Of course you can always stay put and enjoy the 1 mile of beautiful soft sandy beach at Praa Sands itself.
