The property

Just a short walk from one of Cornwall's finest beaches, this extremely spacious ground floor apartment in Perranporth, formerly part of a mine captain’s house dating from 1898, offers ideal accommodation for a large family or those wanting the luxury of extra space.

As you arrive, from the outside you will have no idea what awaits you the moment you enter, so deceiving is this delightful apartment.

The sitting room, with a wonderful open fire and comfy seating, is a splendid room for all the family to sit around together after a day on the beach or walking along the stunning coastal path.

Continue through into the well-equipped kitchen complete with dining area, again with ample space for one and all.

There are four bedrooms here, with a variety of sleeping options to suit all the family.

At the rear of the apartment is a nice-size enclosed, private garden, ideal for children as well as dogs.

There's also secure storage for those wanting to bring bikes or surfboards.

You are deep in 'Poldark country' here, and Perranporth was home to the author when he wrote the first of the novels that have been turned into such a worldwide TV success.

There are reminders all around about the area's magnificent mining heritage, as well as many other historic landmarks.

It is the beach though that this beautiful area of Cornwall is most famous for; miles of golden sands and sheltering sand dunes which are dog-friendly all year round.

Add waterfront restaurants and the famous Watering Hole pub which is the UK's only bar on the beach, with live music featured all year round, and you will understand why Perranporth is one of the most popular beaches in Cornwall.

With so much to enjoy both in the town and nearby, this wonderful holiday home is ideal for a special family break whatever time of year.

About the location


Newquay 9 miles; Truro 9.5 miles.

Perranporth, a beautiful Cornish coastal town, lies in the heart of Poldark Country, the setting for the novels of Winston Graham who lived in Perranporth in the 1930s. Perranporth offers plenty of traditional pubs and shops, plus a classic bucket-and-spade beach that is lifeguarded in summer, overlooked by craggy rocks and a wonderful coastal path. Once known as the source of the finest tin, the community still retains reminders of the rich heritage with 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 fascinating history 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. A perfect holiday base in Cornwall, with an abundance of activities to suit everyone.
