National BBQ Week 2018

28th May 2018

The British barbecue has come a long way from blackened sausages and burnt burgers with even celebrity chefs now showing us how it’s done! For local meats and ready prepared kebabs, burgers and sausages, Chapman’s Butchers in the centre of Perranporth has a great selection of barbecue food. Or to take all the hassle out of shopping, The Cornish Food Box Company offer free range meats, and fish and seafood delivered direct to your door. Salads, fruit and veg can all be bought from the shops in Perranporth or from Mr Fruity, a great greengrocer’s in Goonhavern.

Barbecues offer a fantastic opportunity to get outside with friends and family, and several of our seaside self-catering properties have barbecues that guests can use. Here’s a selection of just some of the places you could enjoy alfresco living while on holiday in north Cornwall…


A light and bright two-bedroom new-build, Luskentyre is modern and cheerful, only 15 minutes' walk to the beach. Offering a patio area with garden furniture and barbecue, and a grassed area too, guests can enjoy views of the sand dunes while those sausages are sizzling.


This three-bedroom pet-friendly dormer bungalow has wonderful views, an enclosed garden and parking. Sliding patio doors open out to a decked balcony with barbecue and garden furniture which overlooks the tiered garden and across Perranporth to the dunes, beach and countryside beyond. New property, give us a call to find out more details.

Chapel Rock View

Large, bright and modern, with a self-contained ground floor flat and balconies with beautiful sea views, Chapel Rock View is a lovely family home sleeping nine guests in five bedrooms. The garden is accessed through patio doors from the kitchen. A bistro table and garden furniture offer outdoor seating, and a chimenea provides an alternative to a standard barbecue, perfect for adding gorgeous smoky flavours to food.  

The Hideaway

Recently added to Duchy Holiday’s portfolio, Hideaway is a five-bedroom pet-friendly family house in a tucked-away peaceful location, yet only ten minutes’ walk to the beach. The fully-enclosed garden includes a balcony with outdoor table and chairs and portable barbecue; a lovely place to sit out in the sunshine and enjoy the Cornish sea air. 

Coastguard Cottage

A traditional Cornish cottage near the beach, Coastguard Cottage has both a front garden and a decked rear garden with barbecue. Fire up the grill and fill the air with the sizzling sounds and smoky smells of summer!


Foxbury is a modern family home with lovely rural views, and accepts one small dog. Patio doors open from the spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living room, onto the patio which overlooks open countryside. The large room extends out into the garden for easy outside entertaining at the outdoor furniture with coal barbecue.

Tregundy Cottage

A spacious four-bedroom detached stone cottage, Tregundy Cottage has exceptional elevated views across the three miles of Perranporth’s sandy beach. To the rear of the property a patio area provides a lovely little suntrap with garden table and barbecue, ideally located to the back of the kitchen.

Barbies on the Beach

If your chosen self-catering accommodation doesn’t have a barbecue, you needn’t miss out! Barbecues are allowed on Perranporth’s beautiful beach and in the undulating dunes, but people are requested to clear up after themselves. Wait for the barbecue to cool and dispose of it safely, along with any rubbish, in the bins provided so that everyone can continue to enjoy the un-littered golden sands.

And if you don't fancy doing the cooking yourself, why not head to Canteen in Wheal Kitty, St.Agnes for fresh, locally sourced dishes... delicious wood fired cooking at it's finest! Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with vegan/veggie options! Or for breakfast served fresh from the coals, head to Genki, in Trevaunance Cove for their famous Sunday morning BBQ bacon baps (halloumi for the veggies).
