To the front of Wild Palms, capture the views through the oversized windows and relax in the comfort of the living room with ample seating and cosy wood burner for the cooler months. Choose from 3 stylish bedrooms, the master bedroom and further super king (zip/lock) bedded room offer sea views and have been thoughtfully decorated.

From your Holiday Door

To the front of the house is a beautiful slate terrace and wonderful place to dine al fresco as you catch the last of the days sun. From your elevated position watch the boats go by in Mounts Bay below or check the surf state as you look down upon Praa Sands Beach. To the rear of the house is a convenient and enclosed garden just perfect for children and dogs to play (please note dogs must not be left unattended). A heated outdoor shower is first stop to de-sand and de-salt after a day on the beach. Steps lead up to a generous grassed garden where lazy afternoons at home or family cricket tournaments are the order of the day. The golden sands of Praa are within a 5 minute walk away from your holiday door. This beautiful beach is picture perfect with the stunning cliffs and headlands offering safe swimming waters. Praa Sands is popular with local surfers and the beach offers a local surf school always on hand to show you the ropes or simply enjoy their skills from the comfort of the Sand Bar, a cool and laid back beach bar. The nearby coastal town of Porthleven is within a 20 minute drive away and offers some tempting places to eat out from local Cornish pub grub, Rick Steins fish and chips or more fusion food options. Explore the collection of boutique shops and wander down to the harbour wall and the attractive fishing boats. The West of Cornwall has so much to offer and adds a true taste of Cornwall to your stay, follow the road to the end of the line at Land’s End, visit the dramatic scenery and beach of Sennen or take in a show at the Minnack Theatre, Cornwall’s very own cliff side amphitheatre.

A stay at Wild Palms will be one to remember, guests will enjoy the luxury of the location combined with the considered layout, comfort and style.

Wild Palms was an excellent holiday home of a very high standard. It is ideally located for exploring both the Lizard & Lands End, with a wealth of superb dining nearby. The property is ideal for those with children or with dogs as the extremely large lawned garden is both private & secure, while the front garden has spectacular views of the sea. A property that we would highly recommend & would happily re-visit.

Our stay at Wild Palms was simply stunning. My wife and I were after a relaxing break, away from busy city life. From the moment we arrived we were not disappointed. It was an amazing break. Wild Palms is a home away from home, of absolute top quality, in all respects - the interior finish, the views, everything... From both inside and outside the house we enjoyed the varied weather, the ever changing views and the peacefulness that this spot in Praa Sands has to offer. Do not hesitate if you are considering staying here. You will, without doubt, love it!

Wild Palms is a beautifully decorated property with very comfortable furnishings. The sea view is beautiful and we didn't want to shut the blinds. The beds are so comfy, like home from home. We would love to visit in summer to make the most of the wonderful front and back garden. The location of the property is excellent. Lots of wonderful places to visit, none too far away. We would love to stay again. Thank you for having us. Elizabeth James & Family xx

Charlotte Trundell

Wild Palms is a lovely modern property with breath taking views. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped with new and high spec oven, hob etc. The outside area is amazing with the utility room and outside shower. Perfect for our sandy teenager and dog! The beds are very comfortable and we all slept really well. We loved this property, would definitely visit again and have no hesitation in recommending it to other Cornish Gems customers. This is the second times we have booked with Cornish Gems and will definitely recommend and use you again. The level of customer service we have received from you is excellent.
