Probably the best positioned house in South West Cornwall, located on an unspoiled stretch of coast near Porthleven; with breathtaking views to the Lizard to the east and across to Lands End to the west. The house perches on the edge of Rinsey Head and sits in grounds of approximately 30 acres making the house completely private – you feel almost like you are on your own island! Rinsey Head was built in the early twentieth century and is architecturally designed to maximise the views in every direction.
Rinsey Head is a comfortably appointed, spacious family home, which exudes a real sense of adventure; on a beautiful summer day relax on the patio and drink in the views whilst a variety of seabirds circle above or on a wild Cornish day snuggle up in the cosy living room and watch the waves crashing below.
Outside: There is parking outside the front door for at least 3 cars, and plenty of room along the upper part of the driveway for a number of other cars. There is a patio area, accessed through a glass door by the sitting room, an ideal spot for sundowners or a barbeque in the evening. The house is surrounded (on 3 sides) by private land, largely in its natural state, growing a mixture of wild flowers, heather, bracken and gorse. The coastline either side of the house is owned by the National Trust.
Beautiful Rinsey beach can be accessed from the house and slightly further along the coastal path (15 – 20 minute walk or less than 10 minute drive) is the spectacular mile long sandy beach at Praa Sands. The property is a haven for walkers being situated on the coastal path with fabulous walks on both sides.
Facilities & Services: Inclusive electricity, central heating and wifi broadband. The house is fully cleaned before your arrival and all bed linen, towels and beach towels are included in the price.
Miscellaneous: Due to the nature of this spectacular location whilst welcome at Rinsey Head young children must be strictly supervised at all times, the owners cannot take responsibility for safety in the grounds of the house. Pets considered, changeover day Friday.
