Make a holiday apartment in Goonhavern your home away from home

Goonhavern is a small village located just two miles east of Perranporth in North Cornwall. Visitors staying in a holiday apartment in Goonhavern enjoy everything the nearby seaside resort has to offer. HomeAway has an impressive selection of Goonhaven holiday apartments which generally sleep between four and six people, making them best suited to groups or families. In fact, many are family friendly as they feature children’s playgrounds nearby, and offer highchairs and stair gates upon request.

But best of all, these holiday homes are a bargain too. On average they are priced at around a third of the cost of Falmouth rentals, and are comparable in price to rentals in Flushing, both on the South Cornwall coast. There are pet friendly units available, as well as those with shared and private gardens, or onsite parking. Most holiday homes in Goonhavern are just a five-minute walk from the local pub and village shopping. Most units will also include linen and towels, although some will request visitors bring their own beach towels.

Things to do

-Watersports: Grab a board and hit the waves! Experienced riders will find fun waves at nearby Perranporth beach, and there are several surf schools available for everyone from experienced surfers to novices. In addition to surfing, the beaches around Goonhavern are ideal for kite surfing. Mobius Kite School offers lessons across several beaches in the area.

-Outdoor activities: With such great weather, it’s no wonder that Goonhavern attracts so many outdoor lovers. Beautiful trails along the coast and into the Cornish countryside entice recreational walkers, cyclists, and horse riders. Riding stables and bicycle rentals are readily available across the region.

-Food and drink: No trip to Goonhavern would be complete without a stop by the Watering Hole, the UK's only sand-surrounded pub! Enjoy year-round food and drink in the warm and friendly atmosphere of this surf-themed bar. Located directly on Perranporth beach, this kick-back spot is only about three miles from holiday cottages in Goonhavern.

-Family attractions: Holywell Bay Fun Park is full of family activities from putt-putt golf, orbiting hovercraft, go-karts, an arcade, maze area, blaster boats and much more! With free entry and free parking, there’s no reason not to pack up the family and make a whole day of this one-stop entertainment centre. The park is just five miles outside of Goonhavern and is too good to pass up. HomeAway lists plenty of other holiday homes in North Cornwall for visitors to take advantage of all these attractions.

We would in future avoid accommodation that allows pets as the smell of dog greeted us when we arrived. Although the owner kindly cleaned the furniture because you could tell that previous visitors had allowed the pet on the furniture it didn't entirely get rid of the smell. Apart from that issue we had a good week and it was a good base for visiting different parts of Cornwall.

                                                                                                  4 of 5
                                                                                                  We had a great week in Cornwall. The cottage being dog friendly and the heated pool at Towan Cottage was the main reason we booked and did not disappoint our two children who enjoyed it even on rainy days, our dog was also very happy to come with us! The cottage was clean and comfortable despite an initial doggy smell when we arrived,as we have a dog of our own so appreciate this is a dog friendly cottage and wet dogs returning from the beach each day take their toll on furnishings, once aired and windows left open it was fine but do feel that maybe the vacuum filters could do with a change or the carpets a clean at the end of the season. The bread bin was not clean but I am being very pickey as the rest of the cottage was fairly spotless. Very pleased with the cleanliness of bedding, towels and bathrooms, eco friendly toilet cleaner would have been useful. Being a gardener, I did notice the pots for plants outside were empty which would have been a nice touch as per the advertising photos? The cottage is in a fantastic position for short drives to the beach, however we could not walk anywhere without the car as the busy road nearby is far too dangerous to tackle so people also really do need to keep their dogs under control and watch young children, we did have a stray dog visit from the nearby yurts and I was concerned it could escape to the road. Would also have been helpful to have some info within the cottage regarding which beaches were within easy reach/quieter/remote etc, having said this we did bump into the owner on the first day who gave excellent advice, was friendly and helpful. None of the above are meant to be criticisms just some minor improvements /observations on how to make this complex even better. We would return and would recommend to others, thank you S McKinney

The shower/toilet facilities are to a good, clean standard. The kitchen facilities are well stocked with plenty pots, pans and cutlery (although a couple of our knives and folks broke). The area outside the yurts is nice and well kept, although we didn't actually use the swimming pool it looked very nice. Andy one of the owners is a very friendly, helpful chap who is around to deal with any questions or problems( his dog Roxy is also very friendly. The only downside to our stay was that due to location I was unable to get out and walk the dog or walk to the local pub because there were no pavements on roadside and it's a busy little road.. The local pub has a great friendly atmosphere with some fantastic food and the landlord is fab with a good bunch of staff.
