Make a holiday cottage in Perranporth your home away from home

Located just eight miles down the coast from Newquay, Perranporth is a quaint seaside town that lays claim to a beautiful three-mile-long beach. Offering all the modern conveniences of a resort town without all the crowds, people come here throughout the year from all corners of the UK to explore the natural surroundings, have fun in the sun, and surf. Perranporth is one of the bigger surfing hotspots in the UK and is a place where seasoned surfers can hit the waves, but beginners can hire equipment or take lessons. Other watersports, such as sailing and kayaking, are also popular activities here, while the huge expanse of sand is a major draw for families.

HomeAway has an excellent choice of Perranporth holiday cottages available for rent. Generally boasting one to four bedrooms, smaller apartments can be booked for less than £250 per week. Larger and more luxurious accommodation can be booked starting at £350 per week. All holiday homes in Perranporth come fully furnished and are comparable to other options such as accommodation in St. Ives and holiday homes in Padstow. Some even offer the added amenity of being very close to the sea.

Things to do

-Beach: Perranporth Beach is accessible from town and stretches for three miles towards Newquay. The wide and shallow beach is the star attraction in the area and is buzzing with activity from April to October each year. Home to hundreds of rock pools, there’s a lot to explore here. Lifeguards are posted along the beach in the summer months, and equipment rental is also widely available. Perranporth is also currently a dog-friendly beach, though dogs must be kept on leads in July and August.

-Watersports: Perranporth Beach is a favourite with surfers of all experience levels. Just a short walk from many holiday homes in Perranporth, surfing novices can take lessons from experienced instructors and equipment rental can be easily found just beyond the beach. In addition to surfing, sea kayaking and sailing tours can also be taken from Perranporth and neighbouring Newquay.

-Outdoor activities: Away from the water, Perranporth is a wonderful place to explore. Many visitors flock to this part of Cornwall to walk along the South West Coast Path. There are stables located in town from which it’s possible to ride horses along the beach. Adrenaline seekers can also try their hand at driving a kite buggy on the sand.

-Family attractions: For safe swimming and snorkelling, families should check out The Bar and Cove Vean, located two miles from Perranporth. Holywell Bay Fun Park is just four miles away and offers plenty of activities for children of all ages. Other points of interest easily accessible from holiday apartments in Perranporth include the Lappa Valley Steam Railway, Blue Reef Aquarium, and Newquay Zoo.

Weather in Perranporth

Buffered by the sea, the weather in Perranporth is warmer and sunnier than much of the rest of the UK. Winter temperatures near 10°C on average, whilst summer highs can hit 20°C or more. This warm weather is accompanied by a generous amount of sunshine, particularly in July and August. Winter tends to receive a bit more rain.

Travel to Perranporth

A wonderful well presented and well equipped barn. Well thought out with all that you can need. A wonderful peaceful stay. Would highly recommend. Local pub just a short stroll serving excellent beers and food.

Comfortable beds and lounge furniture. Wonderful views of the tide rising and ebbing on Perranporth beach and the spectacular sunsets, all viewed from the Bay window in the lounge area. It was peaceful and cosy, a good week was had by all. Thank you for the Cream Tea and supplies Caroline.
