Number 3 The Dunes is a one bedroom first floor apartment in Perranporth's beachside development. Tastefully designed and furnished to create a beautiful finish, the apartment is less than one minutes' walk to The Summer House restaurant, Alcatraz cafe and bar, and Perranporth's wonderful three-mile expanse of beach.
An undercover car port provides one private parking space below the flat, and a shared front door opens to a flight of steps ascending to Number 3's entrance. A lovely bright open plan sitting room and kitchen has light streaming in from a large floor length window which slides open to a glass fronted Juliet balcony.
Wood floors and contemporary styling make the space calm and comfortable, and the large grey corner sofa converts to a double bed to accommodate two more guests if required. A 48" TV, armchair and standard lamp complete the furnishings in this room. The kitchen, fitted with cupboards of the palest grey, is fully equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer, integrated wine fridge and a full-sized dishwasher and a wide breakfast bar with two bar stools. The view from the kitchen window extends across rooftops to the rolling green countryside beyond.
A carpeted bedroom makes a cosy space to nestle up at night in the double bed (4'6"). The fully tiled bathroom has a shower over the bath, WC, basin and heated towel rail. A utility cupboard in the hall houses a combination washer/dryer.
A lockable surf store in the car port provides a secure place to leave beach equipment and boards.
One dog is welcome at Beachside Mews.
The beach is literally steps from the front door, through The Dunes development and down a flight of steps to Perranporth's golden sand and great surf.
Linen & towels
Perfect for walkers
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.
