With incredible views over Perranporth’s stunning sandy beach to the vast Atlantic Ocean, number 32 The Dunes enjoys a spacious sea view balcony that runs the full length of this stylish and highly desirable first floor apartment.
Located in the beachside development The Dunes in Perranporth, with the beach on the doorstep, access to this pet-friendly apartment is through a communal entrance and up to the first floor either by the internal stairs or lift. Number 32 is all on one level and sleeps up to two guests.
Enter into the clean and fresh hallway with space for coats and shoes, and through to the main living area with full-width windows framing the spectacular uninterrupted coastal view. Sliding double glass doors open to the large covered sea-facing balcony, with lighting for the evenings, which is furnished with an outdoor sofa, two chairs, coffee table, and two loungers from which to soak up the sun as well as the view!
Even on cooler days, the outlook can be enjoyed from the comfort of two three-seater sofas in the open plan kitchen / living room. Fitted with soft grey cupboards, the kitchen is fully equipped with an integrated electric oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer and combination washing machine and tumble dryer.
A circular table and four Eames style chairs provides a dining area and the two comfy sofas (one of which is a sofa bed for additional sleeping arrangements), coffee table, large TV and lovely original artwork furnish the warm and inviting living room. Roller blinds are fitted on the windows to ensure privacy once the sun has set into the sea and night falls.
The bedroom is a beautifully styled sanctuary with king-sized bed (5’), in-built triple wardrobe, mirrored chest of drawers, bedside table, dressing table and wall mounted TV. Full length curtains frame the view from the floor to ceiling windows and a door opens to the balcony, so you can wake and open the curtains to the vast expanse of beach, sea and sky, and the sound of the waves.
The fully tiled bathroom is fitted with a shower over the bath, toilet, basin, heated towel rail and large mirror. The apartment is equipped with superfast Wifi and an entry phone system. A secure caged store on the ground level is available for boards and beach equipment, and a shared outdoor shower provides a place to rinse off after a day on the beach.

Near the beach
Perranporth boasts a beautiful three mile long sandy beach with undulating dunes, a tidal swimming pool built into the striking Chapel Rock, and rock pools that are perfect for paddling. Swim and surf in the big blue, explore caves and enjoy the space to stretch, run and breathe. Take a picnic for lazy hazy days in the dunes or take the dog and relish the three mile expanse of golden sand.
Culture and History
St Piran, the patron saint of Cornwall, is said to have washed up on Perranporth’s shores, and the remains of his 6th century oratory can still viewed in the dunes. Perranporth was the site for two tin mines in years gone by and the inspiration for Winston Graham’s Poldark novels which were all written here. High above the beach the millennium sundial tracks Cornish time (approximately 12 minutes later than GMT).
Food and Drink
From fine dining to fish and chips on the promenade, Perranporth has a wide array of food and drink, so you can treat yourself to time away from the kitchen. Share delicious tapas, try vegan street food, or enjoy great bar food in sunny gardens. Local takeaways include Indian, Chinese, Thai and pizza, and remember to leave room for an indulgent Cornish ice cream or post dinner local gin!
The north coast of Cornwall is made for adventure. In addition to the wild playgrounds of the beaches there are also loads of organised activities available too. Book lessons with a surf school, gallop a horse along the beach, and play tennis at beautifully maintained grass and hard courts. There’s also a links golf course in the dunes, hang-gliding, a bowling green, children’s play park and boating lake.
There’s plenty to see and do in the local area, without having to travel too far. Within a short drive of all our properties, visitors can pet farm animals and sample the local cyder at Healeys Cyder Farm, find out how ice cream is made (and of course treat yourself to some!) at Callestick Farm Cornish Ice Cream, and discover the ruins of St Piran’s Oratory in the sand dunes at Perranporth. Dairyland, with horse rides, farm animals, and a huge soft play area, is a great day out for families with young children, as is Lappa Valley Steam Railway with train rides and play park and exploring creatures of the deep at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium at Towan Beach.
Slightly further afield is The Eden Project with its famous biomes, the National Trust houses of Lanhydrock, Trelissick and Trerice, and the spectacular gardens of Glendurgan, Trebah and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From the rugged and dramatic north coast to the sheltered harbours of south coast fishing villages, everyone is bound to find a corner of Cornwall that captures their heart. Visit St Ives for cobbled streets and art galleries including the Tate St Ives, walk the causeway to St Michael’s Mount island off Marazion, and explore Falmouth’s fascinating maritime history. Padstow is a foodie’s heaven, while Truro boasts a stunning Gothic Revival cathedral and is the county’s shopping hub.
Take a Look Around
We really did have the most fabulous time and we really do have the upmost respect for the property having being lucky enough to have stayed in it twice now.
Mr & Mrs Whitehurst stayed 8th March 2022
From the moment I opened the door and saw that incredible view I was in heaven.
I was looking for inspiration for a series of paintings about the sea I’m working on
and I’ve come home buzzing with ideas! That view. To be able to lie in bed with a cup of tea
and watch the tide rush in… just wonderful.
And it wasn’t just the view, the bed was extremely comfy and we both slept very well, the
kitchen had everything we needed and was very well appointed. The sofas were
lovely to relax on and the TV was huge. To top it all the apartment was perfect for the dogs
with tiled floors which made it so easy to sweep up sand and hair.
I will definitely be booking again.
It was a perfect break.
