Little Cottage


It’s ironic because Little Cottage is actually the largest cottage in our portfolio! The name is simply a reminder of the derelict property that once stood before London’s most lauded architect, Alex Michaelis, transformed its crumbling bones into the sleek, modernist beach house you see today. A great place for group of 11 and we offer a special rate for couples.



As Beachspoke’s first foray into larger properties, Little Cottage is no average rental accommodation. Sleeping 11 in 4 rooms, the property stands on Praa Sands between Helston and Penzance.

Set over 2 floors, Little Cottage consists of a large open plan fully equipped kitchen and living room, with 2 large sofas in front of a wood burning stove. There is a separate TV room with 2 additional sofas, a 42″ flat screen TV, X-Box and DVD player. The modern interior has underfloor heating ecologically taken from the heat pump, WiFi throughout and super king size beds. Upstairs are 3 super king en suite bedrooms and an additional bunk room also with its own bathroom that can sleep 5 allowing the property to sleep 11 in total.

We love the giant bean bag that accommodates all measures of afternoon naps and lazy pursuits. The property also provides art materials and boogie boards. What a perfect escape to a world where inspiration doesn’t come in digital forms!
