Beautiful stays in Perranporth, Port Gaverne and Bodmin.
No 34 The Dunes, Perranporth
Situated in a breath-taking location in Perranporth, No 34 is a luxurious and contemporary apartment that allows you to enjoy your holiday in the utmost style and comfort. The prime location overlooks miles of golden sandy beach, grassy dunes and shimmering seas – providing the perfect backdrop to your morning coffee or a glass of wine during the evening. The second floor apartment is finished to an excellent standard with spacious open-plan living and a stylish kitchen, which provides everything you’ll need to cook up a feast. However, with a choice of restaurants on your doorstep, including The Watering Hole on the beach, you may decide to dine out every night.
The sprawling beach is accessible by a private footpath from the development, which is ideal for families with beach gear to carry and perfect for an early morning stroll before the town comes to life. Perranporth beach benefits from being dog friendly all year round, making it a special location for both you and your pet. Outdoor activities are also plentiful with surfing, walking and sandcastle building being amongst some of the most popular. Then, why not top it off by watching the sun slowly set beneath the water during one of Perranporth’s spectacular sunsets.
Upper Tregudda, Port Gaverne
Upper Tregudda is one of two truly fantastic apartments set on the edge of the small but perfectly formed harbourside village of Port Gaverne. This fabulous holiday home sleeps eight in comfortable and bright surroundings, and panoramic views across the harbour and out to the Atlantic ocean can be enjoyed from all living areas and three out of the four spacious bedrooms!
Upper Tregudda sits atop its sister apartment, Lower Tregudda, and is the perfect place for large families, boasting ideal surroundings for socialising together in the form of a sunny lounge, a wonderfully equipped kitchen area and an elegant separate dining room. The South West Coast Path can be found immediately behind the apartments; simply step out of the door and take a short stroll to the nearby dramatic headland and take in those perfect evening views.
Owned by the National Trust, Port Gaverne is a popular destination come rain or shine, and is moments away from the famous 14th century fishing village of Port Isaac. This sheltered inlet has a small sandy beach at low tide, rock pools and caves, as well as cliff walks with magnificent views and stunning sunsets.
Ruan Barn, Bodmin
Located just five miles from the stunning beaches and fishing of the north Cornish coast, this exquisite converted barn is beautifully presented inside and out, with a light and bright open plan living room, dining area and smart, modern kitchen with all the mod cons. The interior features large windows, oak engineered floors and exposed beams, really helping add to that cosy ‘house in the country’ feel.
Sleeping four over two sumptuous bedrooms, Ruan Barn’s accommodation is reversed level, over two floors, with the first floor enjoying a balcony with spectacular views, the perfect spot for winding down with a bottle of your favourite. There’s also a cosy sitting area with a wood burner, for those evenings when the weather’s not so fair.
This holiday home finds itself in the heart of the countryside, yet just a few minutes’ drive from Port Isaac, which you may know as ‘Portwenn’ from TV series Doc Martin. With its beautiful harbour and opalescent waters, plus a number of boutiques, galleries and some fantastic restaurants including celebrity chef Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, Port Isaac is well worth a visit. You’re only a short scoot from the Camel Estuary too and Cornwall’s foodie capital, Padstow, as well as the superb sailing waters of Rock.
