Popular for its huge surf, stunning cliff walks and north facing beach, the town is perfect for families, couples, dogs, surfers and those seeking adventure and self-catering holiday cottages in Perranpoth.
It is easy to see how the dramatic cliffs and wild countryside inspired Winston Graham to write his swashbuckling Poldark novels.
The coastal cliff paths offer long rambles and short jaunts where you can watch the ebbs and waves below. Walk in miners’ footsteps to St Agnes where you’ll see numerous iconic engine house chimneys or amble along countryside cliff tops to Holywell Bay.
Wander through the bustling village and choose from a variety of waterside restaurants and traditional pubs which serve wholesome, local produce. The Watering Hole, which is the UK’s only bar and restaurant on the beach, hosts a number of events throughout the year including live music, comedy nights and beach activities.
On the beach, at low tide, enjoy a unique experience wild swimming in Perranporth’s natural open air pool. During the late summer months, the sea water in the pool can reach Mediterranean temperatures.
Grab a pasty or take-away crispy battered fish and chips from one of Perranporth’s many family friendly cafes and head to the beach. For those seeking a relaxed fine dining experience The Pavilion Boatshed offers a selection of oysters, scallops, crab meat and fresh picks of the day, all caught from the North Cornwall coast. Watch the waves roll onto the beach with good food and drink from the Watering Hole.
Dogs are welcome on Perranporth’s three mile beach which is perfect for a morning run or afternoon walk. The cliff paths to St Agnes and Holywell Bay offer miles of spectacular dog friendly walking.
Perranporth is a disabled friendly village with level pavements to the main shopping strip, park and beach.
