Commanding outstanding views of the sea and sand dunes, and with direct access onto the beach, 8 Sand Bay is a recently renovated and well-presented first floor apartment in an exceptional location from which to enjoy Perranporth's three miles of beautiful sandy beach.
A flight of external steps leads up to the front entrance which is accessed along a small private balcony adorned with plants and palms. The front door opens into a hallway with coat pegs and the fitted kitchen is off to the right. Clean and modern, the kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer and microwave.
The generous sized lounge has fantastic views over the sand dunes and down to the sea from a large picture window which makes the most of the views. Two 2-seater sofas and one 3-seater sofa provide plenty of comfortable seating, and a dining table with six chairs is positioned next to the serving hatch through to the kitchen. A TV, DVD player, wall mounted electric heaters and an electric fire make this a cosy and comfortable place to relax whatever the weather.
The spacious main bedroom is furnished with a leather-based double bed (4'6"), wardrobe and chest of drawers, and benefits from the same exceptional views out to the sand dunes, beach, sea and across up to the golf course. The second bedroom has twin beds (3' each) and large fitted wardrobes. An ironing board, high chair and travel cot are stored in the cupboards for guests' use, and the airing cupboard is also in this room. A fully tiled shower room is fitted with a shower cubicle, WC, basin and heated towel rail.
The property is double glazed and heated via electric wall mounted heaters and night storage heating. There is a launderette in the village, a five minute walk from the apartment.
8 Sand Bay is approached via a narrow private driveway leading to the shared parking area where there is one allocated parking space. If needed, an additional parking space can be arranged at an extra cost of £20 from the Sand Bay reception. Please note that due to an archway the parking area is limited to 7'4" height and no wider than a standard car.
8 Sand Bay is set within a small development of purpose-built holiday homes, only moments from the beach and a couple of minutes' level walk to Perranporth's shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.
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
This apartment was absolutely perfect for our young family. It could not be more convenient being so close to the beach and the town, and inside it is so spacious that we were really comfortable for the full week. The large windows give a stunning view of the beach and sunsets and the car parking was excellent for us. I cannot rate this place high enough and we are sure to return!

An excellent apartment in an ideal position for beach and shops. Buses to Newquay, Truro and Falmouth two minutes walk away for those who do not want to use their car.
