Only five minutes' level walk to Perranporth's three-mile sandy beach and great surf, Little Fernleigh is a beautifully designed bijou house to sleep two.
Light, bright and modern, Little Fernleigh has a fully equipped kitchen with double electric oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge, small freezer and microwave. A breakfast bar has two bar stools, and the lounge area is furnished with a comfortable sofa and TV. Patio doors open out to an enclosed decked garden. An outside shower at the back of the property is shared with next door Fernleigh, great for washing the sand off after a day at the beach.
A glass sided staircase ascends to a mezzanine bedroom with king sized bed (5'). The bed base and wardrobes have been crafted from pallet wood and driftwood and make a stylish feature. The same effect has been created for storage in the bathroom downstairs, which has been fitted with large rain shower, WC and basin. Electric heaters are fitted throughout the property.
Little Fernleigh sleeps two, but for larger groups holidaying together can be booked with next door properties Fernleigh and Menawethan which both sleep six each. All have their own entrances, private gardens and parking spaces. Fernleigh and Little Fernleigh share an outside shower.
Dogs are allowed downstairs only in this property, at a charge of £50 per dog per week.
Towels are included (one bath towel and one hand towel per guest, plus a tea towel) however, if you'd like to hire any additional towels you can add these when placing your booking.

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.
