Large holiday house sleeping 21 for families and friends, with a games room and near the beach at Porthpean

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
The Big Beautiful Beach House, St Austell, Cornwall, sleeps 21 in 12 bedrooms.

In the Petherick family for five generations, Porthpean House has a relaxed old fashioned charm and a laid back atmosphere. Set amidst acres of tranquil gardens, just above the beach, it was the perfect location for the latest Richard Curtis romantic comedy film 'About Time'.

Porthpean House sleeps 21 with ease and the vast array of rooms for entertaining makes large parties effortless. The elegant drawing room with its grand piano and the formal dining room are perfect for families and friends holidaying together whilst the rest of the house invites relaxed lounging and informal gatherings.

The large games room, with its 50 inch screen TV, internet hub and table football, has French windows out to the front garden above the beach. The Snug, overlooking the garden, is the perfect place to get cosy and watch TV, chat or read, with a wood burning stove and intimate atmosphere.

This big beautiful beach house has a rambling, magical quality that encourages children to run around playing hide and seek along the many passages and staircases, and recalls a time when life was lived at a slow, restful pace... the spaciousness of the house along with the spectacular setting, just above the beach, make this a really dreamy holiday home for everyone who comes.
