A fantastic three-storey, four bedroom detached stone cottage, occupying a commanding position on the cliff, Tregundy Cottage enjoys panoramic views across the beach from most rooms and the first floor roof terrace.
Downstairs, the open plan kitchen/diner and sitting room has a solid wood floor and exposed beam ceilings. The cream kitchen is fitted with granite worktops, an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and a large table and chairs. A washing machine and tumble dryer are kept in the utility room just outside the kitchen and the family bathroom is fitted with a bath, shower cubicle, WC and basin. There is also a separate cloakroom on this floor, with a WC and basin.
There are two sitting rooms downstairs, each with stunning sea views, a wood burner and comfy sofas on which to relax after a busy day at the beach! The sitting room open plan to the kitchen is furnished with a sofa, feature fireplace, TV, DVD player and Nintendo Wii. The second sitting room is also a cosy place to curl up, with a wood burner, exposed brick walls, a grey corner sofa plus a large comfy chair, bean bags and a TV.
Stairs ascend to the first floor with three bedrooms. Bedroom one has a double bed (4'6") and an en suite with shower cubicle and basin. There is a separate cloakroom with WC and basin on this floor. Bedroom two enjoys sea views and has a single bed (3'), and bedroom three also benefits from the striking coastal aspect and is furnished with bunk beds and a single bed (all 3' each).
Up a few steps, a door opens to the decked roof terrace (enclosed with a glass screen) which provides seating from which to marvel at the magnificent views along Perranporth's three-mile beautiful beach. Back in the house, additional stairs lead up to the fourth bedroom which enjoys the same incredible views and is furnished with a double bed (4'6").
In addition to the roof terrace there is also a patio area to the rear of the property (accessed through the kitchen), with garden table, seating and barbecue, a lovely little sun trap for family meals al fresco. An outside hot shower is a welcome provision for washing sandy feet and wetsuits before entering the house, and there's parking to the rear of the property for two cars.

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.
