About Caroline Richardson

I manage this apartment on behalf of my uncle. I live 20 miles away in Falmouth - another beautiful seaside Cornish town - and have my own treasured memories of many happy holidays in and around Perranporth.

Why Caroline Richardson chose Perranporth

Droskyn Castle is an imposing stone C19th building situated on the clifftop overlooking Perranporth beach. At one time it was a hotel, and 'Poldark' author Winston Graham is said to have got engaged in what is now one of our apartment's bedrooms (when it was the ballroom of the hotel). Droskyn cliffs, Perranporth beach and the surrounding countryside form the setting for Nampara, Poldark's mines and the neighbouring villages in these novels.

Droskyn Castle is ideally placed as a base for exploring the county - being on the coast path, half way down the magnificent and rugged north Cornish coast. It boasts excellent surfing, is close to the shopping and cathedral city of Truro, and within easy reach of a wide range of local attractions (including the Lappa Valley steam railway, the Eden Project, numerous National Trust properties and the historic fishing ports of St Ives and Newlyn).

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment at Droskyn Castle has unrivalled and extensive views of the ocean, beach and dunes at Perranporth. Although close to village amenities, it has a wonderfully tranquil atmosphere and whilst in the flat you could believe you are in your own private world, miles from civilisation.

Long weekend with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a four day stay at Droskyn castle and it was wonderful. The apartment is utterly fabulous, spotless and extremely comfortable. It accommodated our party of seven with ease and the views from all the rooms were outstanding. Absolutely loved it, there is nothing I can put that is negative. Gorgeous location, comfortable and spacious living space, fully equipped cupboards with plenty of cups etc and those little extras that helped make our stay even more enjoyable. Would 100% recommend. We also were blessed with beautiful warm spring weather. Perfect.

Outstanding accommodation

  • 5 of 5

More than comfortably accommodated 4 adults, 4 children and 2 large dogs. We were amazed by the high spec of the apartment throughout, particularly the kitchen facilities, which were the best I have encountered in a holiday let.

Upon arrival we found Caroline had left hot cross buns for the adults and an Easter egg hunt kit for the kids, a lovely touch that started our break off perfectly. All the bedrooms are comfortably furnished, everyone enjoyed a good night's sleep all week. All the appliances are good quality and straightforward to use. There are more than enough cups, plates and cutlery etc., another pleasing feature as sometimes this can be lacking. The lounge furniture is very comfortable and a fantastic feature here is the home cinema. We all enjoyed watching films on the big screen, the headphones provided ensured no one else is disturbed. The entrance utility area also helps to keep the outdoors outside (4 wet kids and 2 soggy dogs!).

Overall the apartment was spotless on arrival and we all loved the fantastic views, especially from the chairs in the bay window. Fantastic accommodation for a large group, we all loved the apartment and will look to book again next time we visit perranporth.

Family Christmas 2017

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay at Droskyn castle where we found our apartment very warm , well equipped & very inviting. The apartment was large enough for our family of seven people plus the dog to have fun & relax during the festive period. Thank you Caroline for making our stay such a magical experience.. We would definitely like to return & experience the apartment at other times through out the year.

It is therefore eminently suitable for those who enjoy walking, surfing and beach holidays.

The property is available for a family of up to 8 people. Visitors are welcome to bring up to 3 well-behaved dogs (please bring your own pets' equipment, and do not allow pets into the bedrooms).
