The property

In an ideal location for touring all of Cornwall close to the superb beaches of Perranporth, Holywell Bay, Crantock and Newquay this charming spacious house is set in the village of Goonhavern.

As you arrive at Bridge House you will have no idea of the size of the house until you enter.

With two sitting rooms, one being the family living room incorporating the dining area and a separate room for anyone wishing for a quiet space or maybe for the children to make their own, the option is yours.

The well-equipped kitchen looks out onto the rear garden with a choice of furniture and a BBQ for alfresco dining when back from the beach.

There are five bedrooms here, a super king-size double on the ground floor which can be a twin room on request, and four bedrooms offering various combinations on the spacious first floor.

With an excellent village shop catering for all your needs including fresh bread and of course Cornish pasties situated right next door, a well-known pub serving locally sourced food and ales a couple of minutes’ walk away and a children’s play park opposite you could not get a better location for a holiday.

With Perranporth beach and its miles of golden sand offering something for everyone just 2.5 miles away you really will have something for everyone.

The owners even include three parking passes for one of the beach car parks to enable you to go to and fro as you please without charge.

Being in such an ideal location means that you could visit a different beach every day of your holiday, all within 15 minutes’ drive, and have the joy of returning to Bridge House at the end of the day.

About the location


Perranporth 2.5 miles; Newquay 6 miles; Truro 9 miles.

Goonhavern is a small Cornish village in an excellent position just two and a half miles inland from Perranporth, which lies in the heart of Poldark country, the setting for the novels of Winston Graham, who lived in Perranporth in the 1930s. Goonhavern is an active community with a traditional inn, village shop, garden centre and children’s playground. Once known as the source of the finest tin, the community still retains reminders of their rich heritage including abandoned pump houses, mine shafts and workers’ cottages. The nearby town of Perranporth has a beautiful sandy beach which at low tide stretches to three miles long and is overlooked by craggy rocks suitable for rock pooling. The beach is lifeguarded in summer, providing a popular family destination and hosted the 2016 British National Surfing Championships. Perranpoth also offers a small selection of shops, restaurants and pubs including The Watering Hole, a unique pub situated on the sand in the middle of the beach offering live entertainment with a great atmosphere, good food and an amazing view of the sunset! The local Blue Hills museum and Perranzabuloe Folk Museum are both well worth a visit to understand the rich heritage of this coastal area. Further afield are the miles of sandy beaches at Crantock and Holywell Bay and the breathtaking coastal walks around St Agnes, much of it owned by the National Trust. For a greater selection of nightlife, restaurants and attractions why not head for Truro (9 miles) or the coastal resort of Newquay (6 miles)? Newquay is famed for its world-class surfing and has something for every taste and age including the popular Zoo, Waterworld indoor pool and the Blue Reef Aquarium. A perfect holiday base with activities to suit everyone.
