Situated in a fantastic central location, just off the high street and only a couple of minutes' walk to Perranporth's vast sandy beach, The Beach Cave is a well presented and comfortable three bedroom maisonette with small enclosed courtyard.
Tucked back from the high street, the property is ideally located to enjoy Perranporth's shops, bars and restaurants which are just moments away, and yet offers a relaxing environment to return to, put your feet up and relax.
Three steps lead up to the front door which opens into a small hall with utility room off to the left where the washing machine is kept. The ground floor comprises the sitting room, kitchen and dining room in a semi open-plan layout, with patio doors leading out to a small enclosed and decked courtyard. There is a shed for boards and wetsuits, and a bistro table and four chairs at which to enjoy good weather in this little sun trap.
The L-shaped kitchen is fully equipped including electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. A dining table and six chairs overlooks the courtyard, and an archway and single step leads though to the sitting room which is furnished with a two-seater sofa, a comfortable three-seater leather sofa, a single chair, and TV with Sky.
The open plan staircase goes up to three bedrooms, a family bathroom and additional WC. The main bedroom is furnished with a double bed (4'6"), plenty of storage, and a bay window with views across to the sand dunes. Two steps descend to a light and comfortable twin room with two single beds (3' each) and a window seat overlooking the high street. A further two steps lead up to a cloakroom with WC and basin in one direction, and two steps in the opposite direction ascend to the spacious bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and basin. The third bedroom is also on this level, furnished with a double bed (4' 6") and fitted wardrobes.

- 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.
