Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Set on ground floor superbly positioned directly above the golden sands of Perranporth beach with magnificent coastal views far out to sea.

Beautifully appointed to a modern specification with lovely interior finishes, the accommodation is spacious, comfortable and furnished with flair to enhance the contemporary theme. A five-minute down hill walk of the town there are numerous shops, restaurants and bars. Adjacent to the castle is the coastal footpath leading to St. Agnes and a footpath enabling you to walk down to the beach on low tide.

The West Country region
Why go abroad when you can come to Cornwall?!
Dramatic coastline, miles of sandy beaches, picturesque harbours and villages, rugged countryside and a fascinating heritage – Cornwall has something to offer in every season.
A mecca for surfers, Cornwall has dozens of surfing beaches each with their own unique character. Why not try a lesson from one of our surf schools? Cornwall's most popular beaches are lifeguarded throughout the summer, and with many beaches stretching for miles with soft golden sands it's a great place for families to play and relax.
Cornwall is also a walkers' paradise, with over 2,000 miles of public footpaths, including the famous South West Coast Path, amongst other routes and trails. With nearly 1/3 of the county designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty you will never be short of incredible sights in Cornwall, from natural phenomenon such as the bizarre Cheesewring on the wilds of Bodmin Moor, to the causeway at St Michael's Mount or even catching a glimpse of seals lazing on the beach at Mutton Cove!
Perranporth's famous 3 miles of golden sands will be right on your doorstep! A popular surfing spot, Perranporth Beach is lifeguarded during the summer months, making it an ideal place for families to play and relax – why not try a surf lesson while you're here? Or perhaps you prefer a spot of golf? An 18 hole links golf course if just a few minutes away and boasts spectacular views of the beach and coast. All the amenities of the town are within easy reach, including a great selection of cafes, restaurants, pubs and local shops, and with good road and public transport links, Perranporth is an ideal base for exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.

"Lovely apartment, fabulous view"
My husband, baby son and myself stayed at Droskyn Castle 1 in September. We'd booked because we wanted somewhere that would be comfortable for a family, but had a great view - and we got both of these and more.
The apartment was lovely, a great size and nicely decorated. There are the odd signs of damp around the front windows, but that's only to be expected when you're right by the sea, and we were always warm (there's a fire as well as radiators in each room). The view of the bay from the sitting room window was spectacular, and every night there seemed to be people kite-surfing or paragliding. There was alsoa chest full of toys which was a bonus and kept our son occupied. The kitchen was really well fitted out, with washing machine, dishwasher and microwave - and those amazing views again! Mobile phone signal is poor - which is always a bonus on holiday. However it was a shame that there's no wifi, although we did know this when we booked.
The location was good too, with Perranporth a 5 minute walk away (although probably more like ten minutes on the way back up the hill!). There's a good selection of restaurants, takeaways and pubs in Perranporth, as well as a Co-Op and plenty of places to buy the ubiquitous cornish pasty.
All in all we were really happy with our stay and would recommend it - easy to book, fantastic views and a really comfortable apartment.
Many thanks for taking the time to write such a great review and its fantastic to hear that you loved the apartment so much. We'll take a look at the window in question. Thank you for pointing this out and we look forward to being of assistance to you again in the future.

"Fantastic Sea views"
Overall very good apartment. The only couple of niggles were that it could've been aired beforehand as was very stuffy and also the washing Machine door was faulty. But those minor glitches didn't spoil what was an highly enjoyable stay.
Highly recommend anyone to stay here( bit of a steep walk from the beach, if you're not driving but that'll burn off the fish and chips)
Excellent thank you, see you again for sure!
Thank you for your review. We have reminded our cleaner to ensure that the apartment is always aired prior to the arrival of guests and now fixed the washing machine door. We very much appreciate your comments and look forward to welcoming to you Perranporth again in the future.

"Excellent in every way!!!"
1 Droskyn Castle is an absolutely lovely place to stay in Perranporth. The property itself is in good decorative order being clean and modern. The views from the duel aspect living room are superb and great to wake up to. There is a steep hill to get to this property from the town, but once you are up there the view is well worth it!
Its great to hear that you loved Droskyn Castle 1. Many thanks for taking the time to write a review and we hope to be of assistance to you again in the future. Kind regards
