Lovely and very well maintained and cleaned house in the middle of nature, perfect to relax and enjoy a quiet environment. Very close by car to Newquay as well as the beautiful Perranporth beach! Super advised if you need a lot of space and you want to be enjoying your holidays (with your furry babies too) as much as you can away from busy streets and city noise:) Thank you to the owners for an amazing stay!

Ms S,


Located on the rugged North Coast, Perranporth is the gateway to one of Cornwall's most spectacular beaches where the three miles of beautiful golden sands, huge surf and sand dunes, full with wildlife all combine to make a pretty impressive location. Surrounded by countryside that inspired Winston Graham's Poldark novels, this bustling village has plenty to offer from ice-cream parlours, beach shops, family pubs, restaurants and cafes all serving delicious Cornish produce.

Perranporth beach is a remarkable playground for the whole family- build sandcastles, play football or explore the countless rock pools. Take a swim, have a picnic, take a stroll with some canine companions or at sunset, let it provide the perfect place to watch the sun go down! For the more active, there are surf and kite buggy schools on the beach and the coastal footpath, from the village provides stunning walking trails.
