    “The location is so beautiful that no picture can do it full justice.”

    The owners are friendly and welcoming but extremely discreet. The cottage is clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated.

About the property

St Piran’s Point is a wildly romantic detached barn conversion in one of the most exceptional and breath-taking cliff top locations in North Cornwall, and offers an idyllic location and exceptional self-catering experience with sensational sea and coastal views coupled with a boutique interior making it a heavenly retreat at any time of year.

Located high on the cliffs between the seaside villages of Holywell Bay and Perranporth there are the spectacular sandy beaches of Ligger Bay, Penhale Corner (local beach below the cottage with excellent surf and much less crowded than neighbouring spots due to its limited access) and Perran Sands to explore to the West or Holywell Bay 15 minutes along the coast path to the East.

St Piran’s Point is a rare find for silence seekers, bird-watchers, sky-gazers, ramblers, beachcombers and romantics as the property is located over half a mile from any public access roads and surrounded by 900 acres of land owned by the MOD and managed by Natural England, ensuring tranquillity and peace.

Inside luxurious simplicity and rustic charm combine in the airy open plan living space with vaulted ceilings and a huge picture window at one end with stunning, uninterrupted sea views of the spectacular coast.

Decorated with colours reflecting the surrounding natural landscape the lounge area comes complete with a woodburner and sofa making it perfect for cuddling up on and an additional swivel chair for relaxing with a good book or catching up on the latest box set on the large TV.

The modern kitchen is stylish and fully equipped with everything you’ll need to create culinary masterpieces which you can then enjoy at the dining table – with jaw dropping view of the Cornish coastline - a perfect spot for a romantic dinner or a lazy Sunday breakfast ahead of a day exploring the local scenery.

Sleeping will come easy in the pretty bedroom with a large window and sumptuous double bed draped with gorgeous white bed linens and an en-suite shower room with bath robes, thick fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries.

A sliding door leads from the bedroom to the garden where there is a table and chairs – from which to enjoy the view and watch the last rays as you sip your sundowners.

The private gate at the side of the property provides direct access onto the South West Coast Path, which spans for miles in either direction, as well as down to the quieter end of the fantastic surfing beach of Perranporth.

The heathland and dunes that surround are an area of SSSI; peregrine falcons and choughs regularly seen along with a tremendous variety of heathland fauna and flora.

The village of Crantock is within easy reach, while Newquay is about five miles north; home of UK surf and with three major beaches to choose from, you can enjoy a range of watersports activities, as well as a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and attractions that include an aquarium and zoo.

Head south on the coastal path towards the St Agnes Heritage Coastline to discover Perranporth, St Agnes, a selection of glorious beaches, the nearby Healey's Cyder Farm and various stunning lookout points along the way, where the best of the coastal views can be enjoyed.

St Piran's Point is an utterly unique and romantic spot at any time of the year.

About the location


Cubert 1 mile; Newquay 5 miles; Perranporth 5.5 miles; Truro 12 miles; Padstow 18 miles.

Holywell Bay is a sleepy seaside village on the north Cornwall coast, boasting a fabulous beach with stunning dunes and an abundance of small streams and rock pools for the children to explore. Exposed to Atlantic swells, the beach is also popular with surfers and body boarders. Two of Holywell Bay’s most interesting features are the twin rocks just off the coast, known as Gull Rocks or Carter’s Rocks. The village has a selection of shops and pubs, whilst a mile away the village of Cubert has a Post Office, stores, bakery and cafe, village pub and restaurant. Just five miles away is Newquay, the home of the UK’s surf scene, boasting three major beaches, the National Surf Centre and an endless supply of rolling surf, making it a watersports paradise! The town, with its shopping centre, zoo, sea life centre and varied selection of restaurants and pubs, also promises a holiday to remember. If you seek more, the South West Coast Path passes in both directions along a stunning coastline of high cliffs, hidden coves and yet more beaches. The quaint harbour and fishing village of Padstow is just 18 miles away, while Truro, with its museums, cathedral, restaurants and cobbled streets, as well as the Eden Project, can be reached in half an hour. The perfect base for touring this part of Cornwall.
