An attractive contemporary pet-friendly house, Starboard is a semi-detached three-storey property built to a high specification enjoying far reaching views over the beach, boating lake and village to the sand dunes and countryside beyond.

Starboard has space for two cars to park on the driveway at the front, and the entrance to the house is then up a few steps. On the ground floor an open plan sitting- and dining room enjoys triple aspect views with large folding doors to the front and double doors to a patio area. The dining table seats eight and a large comfortable sofa, two armchairs and a TV with DVD player provides a relaxing place to put your feet up at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

The fully equipped kitchen is fitted with integrated appliances including a double electric oven and hob, microwave, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and combination washing machine and tumble dryer. Also on the ground floor is a cloakroom with WC and basin. On the second floor there are three spacious bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom one is furnished with a king-sized bed (5') and has wonderful views from the windows and also double opening doors to a balcony.

Bedroom two has bunk beds (2'6"), and bedroom three is furnished with twin beds (small singles 2'6" each). The bathroom, with feature porthole window, is fitted with a bath and hand held shower, WC and basin.

Upstairs to the top floor, the light and roomy master bedroom has a king-sized bed (5'), beautiful views, and an en suite shower room with shower cubicle, WC and basin. The landing outside the bedroom gives access to a balcony – a fantastic place to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the far reaching views. (Please ensure that children are supervised on the balcony.) Starboard is heated by thermostatically controlled electric wall mounted heaters in each room.

Outside, there is an enclosed patio with barbecue and garden furniture for al fresco dining and entertaining, and also a lawned area (up a few steps). Please note that the lawn is not enclosed from the neighbouring property's garden. The rear garden has a washing line, a small shed useful for storing boards and beach equipment, and an outside tap for rinsing wetsuits. One small dog is welcome during the low season (not in the school holidays).

Towels are included with this property (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.

  • Beach Life

    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!

  • Get Active

    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.

  • Local Attractions

    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.

  • Explore Cornwall

    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.
