Step Inside

Follow the country lanes towards the picturesque Rinsey headland and arrive to the Cornish charm and tranquility of Welloe Rock. The impressive granite house is set within its own private grounds ensuring a private outlook. Once inside, the house oozes country style from the exposed beams, deep window sills and granite hearths to the floral fabrics and relaxed seating. The large kitchen becomes the hub to the house where holiday life begins over a lazy breakfast at the oversized dining table, every cupboard and draw is filled with all you could need from baking to barbeques. There is ample space for your shopping and the nearby farm shop offers a constant source of culinary inspiration. Leading from the open plan dining/kitchen space is the sitting room where you can gather as a family or friends group whatever the weather, get the fire crackling in cooler months or simply enjoy some quiet time away from the buzz of the kitchen, a tucked away study and wifi connection is on hand for those needing to keep in touch with home. Welloe Rock offers 4 bedrooms across the first floor, choose from 2 king bedded rooms and 2 twin rooms each adorned with the finest linens. There are two family bathrooms, one more recently transformed to a boutique haven with stand alone bath and welcome rain shower. A convienient cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin is located on the ground floor.

From your Holiday Door

Spill from the house onto the traditional granite terrrace where steps lead onto the generous green lawn. Choose to dine at the raised dining table and chairs complete with jackpot views of the bay or at the large wooden table with built in granite seating with extra chairs. With its South West facing location you are well placed to capture the morning sun before it sets over Praa Sands. The well kept lawn invites family games and is a safe and enclosed area for children to play, this really does become and extension of the house. A seperate games room in the grounds includes a table tennis table and a host of garden games and deckchairs. Those looking for a beach adventure are well placed, wander down the country lane and join the coastal path that twists its way down the cliff to Rinsey Beach, those that make the journey are rewarded with unspoilt golden sands and the most crystal blue seas you will find. Families with smaller children may prefer the shores of Praa Sands where a cool cafe, beach shop and surf school can be found. A private parking space comes as part of Welloe Rock where you can park easily and access Praa Sands at Hendra Beach. There are a number of places to dine in the local area and Porthleven is packed with artisan cafes and restaurants, pubs and bars. The deli within Porthleven is well worth a visit alongside the local fish shop for a true taste of Cornwall. Further afield, discover West Cornwall visiting the iconic towns of Newlyn, Mousehole and St Ives.

This Cornish country retreat is the most perfect place for a relaxed holiday by the sea, where urban heels are swaped for coastal comfort. Gather as a family or enjoy a good catch up with friends in the comfort of Welloe Rock.
