Perranporth was the landing point for St Piran, the Patron Saint of Cornwall and of Tinners, who arrived from Ireland in the 7th Century. The village became a centre for tin mining and then boat building but is now one of Cornwall's premier holiday resorts and surfing destinations with 2 miles of sandy beaches surrounded by high cliffs and low sand-dunes. The beach is cleaned every day in the summer and its water quality meets the highest UK and European standards. The beach is lifeguarded everyday throughout spring, summer and autumn.
The village hosts several good quality bars, pubs, cafe's, restaurants together with a good range of independent retailers, surf shops and surf schools. The Millennium Sundial on the headland shows Cornish time, 20 minutes ahead of GMT – adding to the notion that you have to get up early to catch a Cornishman!
There's plenty to do in and around Perran if you get tired of the beach. Perranporth Golf Club with its renowned links course sits on the edge of the village and overlooks the beach. If horse riding is your thing, Reen Manor Stables offer riding excursions around Perran's wooded valleys or along the beach towards Ligger Point. Alternatively, take a walk along the coastal footpath to St Agnes and enjoy the rugged cliff scenery or head north taking in Holywell Bay, Porth Joke, Crantock, Pentire Head and on to Fistral Beach and Newquay. Or, take a leisurely drive along the coast road through St Agnes, Porthtown, Portreath and on to Godreavy Lighthouse with its 3 miles of golden sand forming the edge of St Ives Bay.
The Annexe at Wyngarth
The annexe is attached to the owner's main home. Wyngarth is situated 2 mins walk from the village centre and 4 mins from the beach; in fact, it's so close that many guests walk down and back in their wet suites. Two good general food- stores are also within a few minute's walk and are open late in to the evening, all week. Local pubs, restaurants, take-a ways, ice-cream parlours and pasty shops, are the same distance. For an early evening drink in a quaint village pub, the Bolingey Inn with its exquisite locally sourced home-made food is only a 15 min walk. Or visit the Watering Hole, the famous Bar and Restaurant on the Beach. So, if you want a holiday where you park the car on arrival and don't want to use it again until you leave, the Annexe at Wyngarth may be ideal for you.
