Penhallow is a small hamlet near Perranporth, a Cornish coastal resort which lies in the heart of Poldark Country, the setting for the novels of Winston Graham, who lived in Perranporth in the 1930s. Perranporth was made famous by the BBC series Seaside Rescue and is a classic bucket and spade beach with lifeguards in the summer. It is a popular family destination with a beautiful sandy beach which at low tide stretches to two miles long and is overlooked by craggy rocks suitable for rock pooling. Perranporth also has the Millennium Sundial by the beach telling Cornishtime which is 20 minutes ahead of GMT. Perranporth has plenty of traditional inns, village shops and was 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 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.
