This lovely ground floor pet-friendly apartment with glorious beach and sea views is only a few short steps from Perranporth's beautiful three-mile sandy beach and famous Atlantic swell. Enjoying direct access to the beach and dunes, 3 Sand Bay is part of a small complex of beachside apartments, ideal for a family holiday by the Cornish coast.
Three steps lead up to the apartment, which is then all on one level. The accommodation is well presented, with tiled flooring in the bathroom and kitchen and good quality wood effect vinyl in the other rooms. A modern fitted kitchen is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, and a washing machine.
The comfortable lounge/diner seats six at a dining table by the window, to make the most of the sea views, and is furnished with two leather sofas and a TV and DVD player. A rear door opens directly to a footpath which crosses the stream to the sand dunes and golden sandy beach.
Bedroom one is furnished with a double bed (4'6") and enjoys beach and sea views. Bedroom two has twin beds (3' each) and a built-in wardrobe. The shower room provides a large shower cubicle, toilet, basin with integral vanity unit and heated towel rail.
The property is heated by wall mounted electric heaters and portable heaters, and there is an allocated parking space for one car outside the front door. An additional parking permit can be purchased for £20 per week from the Sand Bay reception. Please note that due to an archway the parking area is limited to 7'4" height and 6'7" wide.
Linen & towels
Perfect for surfers
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
Gwel-An-Mor is a lovely place to stay very handy for everything and really quite quiet except when a large venue is on at the Watering Hole, even then not really an issue. Great place thanks for letting us stay :-)
Mr Coltman stayed 13th August 2023
The 2 bedroom flat is situated directly off the beach, a mere 20m from an entrance. It is wonderfully fitted out with quality furnishings, the beds are truly comfortable...always a lovely surprise. Plenty of crockery and cutlery along with other utensils.
Jen left the property in a stunning condition, as always. She left treats for us and our 4 legged friends which was deeply appreciated.
We stayed at Sandbay 3 in June 2023 We have now stayed at this apartment for the past 4 years this suits us as we have dogs and find it easy to clean due to the stone floors. The apartment has everything you would need for a 2 week holiday plus the owner will supply clean bedding on the second week. The owner will even leave treats for the dog and also a starter kit to start your holiday. First class service and first class apartment.
No. 3 sand bay. Gwel-an-mor…. Super flat… spotlessly clean, comfortable, and well equipped, Had a great holiday,..can recommend.
This is a great location and the apartment is adequately furnished but the approach is extremely tight, beware if you drive a biggish vehicle. You may wish to bring your own towels as the ones provided are tiny! The beds are not the most comfortable neither are the couches but it may be worth it for the amazing views across the beach and the beautiful sunsets.
