Location description from owner
The England region
Cornwall is the perfect holiday destination as it has something to offer everyone. You can choose between the numerous stunning beaches, or explore the beautiful countryside and quaint villages, complete with their cornish engine houses, a reminder of Cornwall's mining history. To entertain the youngsters, there are several adventure theme parks to choose from, or family-friendly farms. For the more mature visitor, there are many stately homes, castles and National Trust gardens to enjoy. Take a trip to the most southerly point of England at Land's End, then visit the nearby Minack Theatre, a magnificent open air theatre which is built in to the cliff face with breathtaking ocean views, or swim in the turquoise bay of Porthcurno, just below the theatre. Another must at this end of Cornwall is a visit to St. Ives, a famous artists' haven, and home of the Tate Modern gallery which overlooks Porthmeor beach. The most pleasureable way to get there is to park at St. Erth station and take a ride on the scenic railway, thereby avoiding the summer traffic. For the more active visitor, there are a wide variety of outdoor activities available, from surfing on the north coast, diving and boating on the south coast, to cycling, rock climbing and anything else you can think of in between. A more recent attraction is the Eden Project, near St. Austell, which attracts thousands of visitors every year.Whether you just want to relax, sunbathe on a beach, enjoy a pasty or Cornish cream tea, or just spend time exploring, Cornwall is the perfect destination for you.
Perranporth is a family resort located on the north coast of Cornwall, with 3 1/2 miles of golden sands, attracting surfers, sunbathers and walkers who enjoy the stunning coastal footpaths. The beach has been made more famous in recent years with the Seaside Rescue programme following the local RNLI lifeguards. Visitors can enjoy the excitement of the Atlantic surf, safe in the knowledge that the lifeguards are on duty from Easter until October. Surf schools and surf hire are readliy available in the resort.The village has a variety of gift shops, food stores, a post office, bank, surf shops and a good selection of pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. The "Waterinhg Hole" ( famous for being the only bar on the beach) is always popular, as well as "Seiners" which is located on the beach front.A 15 minute walk from the property through the picturesque valley of Penwartha Coombe and Bolingey lies the Bolingey Inn, a 17th century traditional Cornish pub. If you care to walk from Barn Coombe to Perranporth, this is a perfect halfway stopping point to enjoy a drink or a tasty meal. In the 19th century, Perranporth was a tin mining village and evidence of this can be found along the coastal footpath, with numerous mining adits to investigate. There are also many caves to explore at low tide if you take a walk along the beach. Be sure to take in the headland known as "Droskyn Point", where there is a huge sundial and spectacular views of the entire beach and coastline.An 18 hole links golf course overlooks Perranporth and the beach. At the opposite end of the village, on the road to St Agnes, is the Perranporth Airfield from where operates a sky diving centre and a gliding club. You can enjoy spectacular views of Cornwall on a scenic flight from here. Other activities to be enjoyed are bowling, horse riding, tennis, hang gliding and fishing. There is also a boating lake where you can have a peaceful rest, and enjoy the colouful gardens.The seaside resort of Newquay is about 8 miles north of Perranporth, and the cathedral town of Truro is approximately 8 miles inland. The area is well served by a road network, making it easy to travel to all parts of Cornwall by car or coach. Coach trips around the Duchy are available, and can be booked at the Perranporth Information Centre located in the middle of town.

“peaceful bolthole to escape from the ratrace near to the most beautiful sunsets ever”
Cottage is situated just one and a half miles from Perranporth by car (which is needed) and one mile from local, friendly pub. ( long walk in the dark but worth the effort ) Accomodation is comfortable and clean with all you could wish for to make you feel at home. (our dog was also made welcome and had a good time) Hosts are accomodating and very helpful and friendly, We even had Cornish biscuits for our coffee on arrival and a warm welcome from Jeannie which made us feel at home. Location is perfect for discovering this Cornish coast and the sunsets watched from the "Watering hole", on the beach are second to none, Will definately return in the future.
