Steeped in Celtic history, smuggling and shipwrecks, Penzance is a charming South Cornwall town full of character with some truly splendid views. Sat in the Land’s End peninsula, its sheltered position and warmer climate make for some interesting plant life and the town is brought to life in the spring and summer months with a blaze of floral splendour.

With Land’s End just ten miles away and excellent links to the wider Cornwall, staying occupied is not a problem during your stay, with rare plant gardens, a helicopter ride to the enchanting Scilly Isles and the striking St. Michaels Mount; there is certainly plenty to see and do. The fascinating history can be explored in the Museum, while a day at one of the sun kissed beaches is the perfect way to relax. With restaurant and pubs aplenty, a fine selection of shops and even an open air theatre on the coast, Penzance makes for an ideal holiday destination.

“Words cannot describe my feelings for the chalet. Luckily I spent 6 cherished years growing up here and enjoying everything ! This amazing place has to offer. While we are off on a new adventure please look after my home.” Paul, Jenna, Arthur and Lotus, March 2014.”
“Once arrived at Golden Sands there really wasn't any reason to leave. Access to the beautiful Praa Sands was easy. The accommodation was fab - from our cream tea on the lovely terrace overlooking the beach to the roaring fire on chilly evenings.” Jackie Edwards, October 2013
“Lovely warm welcome, enjoyed the house, perfect location, beach brilliant – we were lucky with the weather so we didn’t need to venture too far – why would we want to – will definitely try to come back. Thanks very much.” Keith, Franc, Luke and Adam, Sheffield, September 2013.
“Great views, fantastic beach – weather pretty good so managed many a day on the beach. Hope to come back soon.” Becky, Kath and Jude, Nottingham, 18th September 2013.
"The location of Golden Sands is as near perfect as one could wish for. In very close proximity to the sea and far enough away from busy roads to offer peace and quiet and the opportunity to take in the wonderful views. The property is tastefully furnished and equipped with everything that you would expect and then with a few extras to enhance the experience. Our favourite is the sun lounge which is warm even when the outside temperature may not be, and it offers those beautiful panoramic sea views too. When the weather is warmer the decking offers a lovely place to enjoy the sea air and "catch a few rays". As properties go it is a perfect place no matter what the season or the weather, (although a nice sunny day is hard to beat) the central heating is very efficient and for that added cozy evening in, the log fire in the living room makes it that bit more cozy. Would we return, yes please! Unusually for us, we normally never return to the same place as the world is still a big place with plenty of places to see. However there are places that you fall in love with, and this is the place, we can't wait to return next year." Derek, April 2013
“We holidayed with our two friends and our two dogs and thoroughly enjoyed all that both Golden Sands and Praa Sands had to offer. We were greeted by a cream tea, a gift for us and the dogs and a lovely Christmas tree with decorations in the house too. Everything felt just right from the first moment. Our host was attentive. Thank you Brad. The cottage is well equipped in the kitchen and means that cooking simple or special meals was a treat. Throughout the rest of the home most modern day essentials have been considered. We didn't have a phone signal but the WiFi throughout the house gave us enough communication with the outside world. The fire provided atmosphere on chilly evenings but the outdoor space and views and the location of the cottage were what the holiday so perfect for us. Praa Sands was surprisingly busy on New Year’s Day with families, surfers, dog walkers and those just enjoying the stunning location. We loved the fact that this little community came to life for the day (helped by the most fantastic weather). Would we recommend it to you: Yes, for an outdoorsy holiday with access to good local amenities just a few miles away. Yes for a romantic break. Yes for a special house party celebration with friends/family. Would we come again: YES!” Maggie, January 2013
‘Great house, well equipped, stunning views. Thank you for a very special week. We have never holidayed with our dogs before – we have all had the best time.’ Nigel, Maggie, Ron, Jan, Ruby &Eddie, December 2012
‘We have had a fantastic time here in the wonderful beach house managed to dodge any rain and grab some autumn sun! Beautiful location - wish we would stay forever!

‘We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Thank you for providing so well – you have been very attentive and it was very much appreciated. The baby loved the lights in the bath too!’ Sue, Dave, Natalie, Josie & baby Olivia, August 2012
"A great location for peaceful holidays - the view is amazing and there are some great walks. Interesting places are close by and easy to get to." S. Bishop, August 2012
"Golden Sands is brilliantly located above a stunning beach. The property comes with everything you could possibly need for an enjoyable stay. The decked area to the rear is wonderful for just sitting and taking it all in. We'll be back!" Ian, February 2012.
"Here with four teenagers and we had the most amazing time. We walked miles, swam and spent hours watching the sea. It is quite simply a perfect house in a perfect location. Very helpful and friendly property management and team." Byron family, October 2009.
A magical place where the sun seems to shine all day long and at night the shooting stars never seemed to stop dropping from the clear skies. Thank you. Danny and April, October 2009.
