This stunning three bedroom house dates back to the late 1700’s when the original part was a local fisherman’s cottage. About 100 years later the rest of the house was built giving it a stunning façade and breath-taking sea views on three sides through windows facing south, east and west. Parc Brawse House features beautifully on the Lizard Peninsula and makes a perfect place to escape the real world and enjoy your own slice of Cornish heaven.
Inside Parc Brawse House
You have driven along the spectacular, unspoilt Lizard Peninsula, through the picturesque Cornish villages to just about as far south as you can go — right through the quaint Lizard village itself. The sea glistens on the horizon and the lighthouse stands proud on the Point as you recognise Parc Brawse from the photos and pull into the drive via the private gates.
The front door leads you into a gracious hallway with stripped wooden flooring, gilded mirrors and high ceilings. Off the hallway is a bright, neutrally toned sitting room where you can sit back and unwind as you sink into the comfortable sofa, with a 43” smart TV with Sky Q and a wood burning stove. Opposite is the library, a great place for private escape, listening to music on the remote speakers or gentle contemplation. The library offers plenty of books, guides and maps and overlooks The Signal Station and Bass Point in the distance, a perfect place to catch up on emails, write your memoirs or simply download the newspapers given the super-fast broadband.
Further along the hallway there is a large kitchen, with a classic Rayburn giving gentle warmth (except in summer), plus a large Rangemaster 110 oven and hob — ideal when catering for larger celebratory gatherings. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Downstairs you also have the formal dining room, seating ten and relaxed breakfast room, games room with rattan sofa and table football, ideal for lazy summer afternoons and a well-equipped utility room. There are doors leading from both the sitting room and games room to the sunny terrace, which is perfect for al fresco dining, evening drinks and catching the Cornish sunshine throughout the day.
Parc Brawse House provides three bedrooms, up the elegant sweeping staircase you’ll find a generous landing leading to bedrooms and bathrooms of the main house. Bedroom One is the principal bedroom, with a super king-sized bed and dual aspect windows with stunning panoramic sea views to the south towards Lizard Point and east over fields of wild rabbits to Pistil Meadow. You have a day sofa here and a central feature fireplace (not in use). Bedroom Two has a king-sized bed and again dual aspect window with views to just catch the sunset over Kynance Cove, Bedroom Three can be made as a twin and has sea views over Tregullas Organic Farm with Jack & Jill en suite bathroom providing a large waterfall shower and claw-footed bath. Upstairs you also have a very generous main bathroom with large stroll-in shower, free-standing bath, dado rail and half panelling.
Outside Parc Brawse
The beauty doesn’t stop on the inside of this house, the large south facing coastal garden catches the sun all day and is complete with home grown seasonal vegetable patch and herb garden for your own use. The patio allows al fresco dining and a charcoal barbeque, ideal for unwinding after a day spent at the neighbouring world famous Kynance Cove. With just a five-minute stroll you’ll find yourself at The Lizard Lighthouse where you can find out more about the history of the area, enjoy a hot chocolate on the cliffs, spot some seals, watch the fisherman bringing up the lobster posts and of course take in the breath-taking views.
Things we love …
With coastal walks and small coves aplenty and right on your doorstep, you won’t ever be short of things to do while staying at Parc Brawse House. We love that you can walk to the village in less than five minutes — here you can find the famous Ann’s pasties (arguably the best in Cornwall), Tregullas Organic Farm Shop and of course The Top House Inn and The Witchball pub (the locals’ pub) with fresh fish daily from Cadgwith Cove. There are also numerous independent stores, historic ice-cream parlours and cafés.
Why not stretch your legs a little further and walk to Kynanace, famed for its turquoise waters, sandy cove and brilliant café? Swim, fish or enjoy a cream tea or get lucky and spot a rare Cornish chough. Or get the adrenaline flowing by going surfing at Kennack Sands or Poldhu, or booking (in advance!) with the brilliant Lizard Adventures — a little rock climbing or coasteering is a great way to work up an appetite!
Back to your boutique holiday home, Parc Brawse where friends and family await… cook up a storm of fresh lobster from the nearby Cadgwith Cove, kick back in the garden, snuggle down for a binge-watch and if you’re very lucky, you may hear the lighthouse sounding on a stormy night! You really could spend a week here and venture no more than a few miles away, in one of the most remote, yet amazingly rich and diverse locations anywhere.
