Situated on a hillside overlooking Perranporth village, beach and the Atlantic Ocean, The Bees Knees is a contemporary and comfortable reverse level house, with stunning coastal and countryside views from the upstairs open plan living area and balcony.

From a generous parking area for two cars, steps lead up through the front lawn to the main entrance to the house. A spacious hallway provides a modern and warm entrance to the house, with wooden floorboards throughout the hall and first bedroom, and a cupboard for coats and shoes.

Four bedrooms on the ground floor sleep eight, and a family bathroom is fitted with a shower over the bath, WC, basin and heated towel rail. Bedroom one is furnished with twin beds (3' each) and a wardrobe. Patio doors open to a raised patio with garden furniture to seat eight.

The rest of the bedrooms are carpeted, bedroom two furnished with a king-sized bed (5'), wardrobe and beautiful yellow oyster-shell chair, bedroom three with a double bed (4'6") and wardrobe, and bedroom four with a double bed (4'6") and wardrobe. This bedroom also benefits from an en suite fitted with a shower cubicle, WC, basin and heated towel rail. A travel cot is available within the property.

Upstairs, the open plan living room has been designed to make the most of those glorious views from the large Apex window. Doors open to a decked balcony with glass walls to be able to fully appreciate the outlook: a beach and sea vista to the left, rolling Cornish countryside to the right, and the undulating sand dunes in the middle; a beautiful view to take in while enjoying a morning coffee on the balcony or a sundowner in the evening.

The open plan sitting room and diner is comfortably furnished with two 3-seater reclining leather sofas, a fabric teal coloured 2-seater sofa, coffee table and glass topped dining table with chairs for eight. A highchair is also available. A large Smart TV and DVD player make this a relaxing space to curl up at the end of a busy day, and curtains can be drawn across the large windows when the sun goes down. Please note that the wood burner is a decorative feature only and is not in use.

The modern grey kitchen has composite pale wood effect worktops and a wide breakfast bar with two stools. A Velux window lets in more light, and the view from the main window can even be appreciated from the kitchen, making preparing dinner a pleasure! Fully equipped, the kitchen is fitted with an electric double oven and hob, integral fridge/freezer and a dishwasher.

An upstairs utility room houses a combi washer/dryer as well as a WC and sink. The property is heated by electric radiators throughout, and the water is solar heated, with a back up booster. There are two parking spaces at the front of the house.

Pets welcome upon request only, outside of main school holidays. Smaller dog breeds over one years old considered. Dogs are charged at £35 per week, per pet. Please see our booking terms for details of our dog friendly terms and conditions.

Please note that towels are not included at this property, however these can be hired from Duchy Holidays and added at the time of booking, or feel free to bring your own.

  • 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.
