The spectacular and iconic house at Rinsey Head is situated on an unspoilt stretch of coast near Porthleven, in West Cornwall. Located on its own headland, Rinsey Head has spectacular views of both Lands End and The Lizard. The private estate extends to over 27 acres and is largely in it's natural state, growing a mixture of wild flowers, heather, bracken and gorse. An incredible opportunity to stay in a truly unique property!
It is all about Location!
Probably the best located self catering property in South West Cornwall, positioned on the beautifully unspoilt stretch of coast between Porthleven and Praa Sands; with far reaching views across Mounts Bay, to Lizard Point in the East and Lands End in the West. The house itself perches on the edge of Rinsey Head and sits in private grounds of approximately 27 acres, making the house totally private. Rinsey Head was built in the early twentieth century and is architecturally designed to maximise the views in every direction.
The house itself is a well appointed, spacious family home, which exudes a real sense of adventure; unlike many places in Cornwall the weather here is immaterial – on a beautiful summer day relax on the patio and drink in the views whilst a variety of seabirds circle above and dolphins play below; or on a wild Cornish day snuggle up, light the fire in the cosy living room and watch the waves crashing all around!

The “Rinsey” room has a large super king bed, wardrobe and large chest of drawers, the double aspect windows have views of Rinsey on one side and over Mounts Bay to Penzance on the other, there is a modern white ensuite bathroom with bath and shower over. The “Praa” room is a very large bedroom with king size bed, built in wardrobes, two chest of drawers and a two-seater sofa, again double aspect with stunning views, probably one of the only bedrooms where you can see Lizard point and Lands End from your bed! There is a modern white ensuite, with shower cubicle, WC and basin (again with amazing views!). On this floor there is also a newly fitted modern white family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, WC, hand basin and two large towel rails.

Up a couple of stairs and past bookshelves packed with holiday reading is the “Turret” room with single bed, wash basin, fitted wardrobe and chest of drawers.
Second Floor: A large bedroom with two single beds and one set of bunk beds; there is a wash hand basin and two incredible arched windows. The room evokes the spirit of Enid Blyton and would be a firm favourite with any children in the party!
In amongst your very own private headland is space to park several cars to the front of the property and a newly built garage which can be used to store surf boards and beach paraphernalia! To the rear of the house is a patio area with incredible views. There are no fenced areas around the house so due to the nature of the location young children and pets should be accompanied whilst outside at all times.
