Three miles of golden sands
Perranporth beach lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and for this reason is one of the most breathtaking in Cornwall. The wide sandy beach is bordered by sand dunes and has a collection of rock pools, making for perfect entertainment for families with younger children.
The topaz blue colour of the water is also what attracts many to this pretty cove, with its excellent conditions for extreme sports noted also. From wave surfers to kite surfers, many flock to the beach all year round in order to make the most of this highly regarded beach.
Parents will be pleased to hear that the beach is lifeguarded during the summer months, as well as those with four legged friends as the beach also is dog friendly all year round (Please note: dogs must be kept on leads during July and August).
Author Winston Graham lived in Perranporth for a number of years and his Poldark novels were based on the area itself. Spot the locations from the book and the television series that has recently been filmed during your stay.
Explore the wild and craggy coastline by foot using the South West Coast Path which runs past the town. Whether you choose one of the more challenging routes, or just fancy a breath of fresh air during a short stroll, there’s plenty to see along this picturesque stretch of coastline.
Wildlife lovers are sure to enjoy a stay in Perranporth too. Spend the day spotting the rare birds and flowers that inhabit the area and you may also be able to spot one of the Silver-studded Blue butterflies, which are currently an endangered species.
Small town life
The area is steeped in history, with one of the Patron Saints of Cornwall, said to have landed here upon his arrival to the country. The town itself is named after this particular saint, with Perranporth meaning the cove of St Piran.
It’s not only heritage to explore, the town also has a variety of cafes, surf shops, restaurants and craft shops for an afternoon or two spent perusing or watching the world go by. If you visit during April, you’ll also have the opportunity to attend The Perranporth Shout, a sea song and shanty festival which attracts visitors from afar.
Even though the town may be small in size, it is easy to reach by the A30 road and is also close by to St Ives, Truro and Newquay, making Perranporth an idyllic base for exploring all that the north coast of Cornwall has to offer too.
We have Perranporth cottages in a variety of styles and sizes, so whether you’re looking to visit with your partner, children, extended family or four legged friend, we’re sure to have a property that will make your holiday extra special.
