A lovely semi-detached traditional Cornish cottage in the peaceful and picturesque hamlet of Bolingey, Underthuel Cottage offers contemporary and comfortable accommodation to sleep four in two bedrooms. Located in a tranquil countryside location, the cottage is still only just over one mile (30 minutes’ walk) from Perranporth’s huge beautiful sandy beach and renowned surf break, and literally moments from The Bolingey Inn, a charming 17th century pub serving food and local ales.
The property is entered through French doors to a light filled kitchen/diner with wooden herringbone flooring in the dining room and a tiled floor in the kitchen. Fully equipped, the kitchen is fitted with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, and washing machine. The dining area is furnished with an oak table and four chairs.
A step leads up to the cottage sitting room with low beamed ceilings and pretty arched window. The room is furnished with a corner sofa, two comfy chairs and a coffee table. A wood burner, small freeview TV and DVD player make this a cosy place to curl up at the end of a long day sightseeing. The stairwell is open to the sitting room and ascends to a split-level first floor.
Bedroom one is a lovely spacious dual aspect room overlooking the courtyard, furnished with a low super-king-size bed (6’), tall chest of drawers and large walk-in wardrobe. Bedroom two has twin beds (3’ each), a chest of drawers and built-in cupboard. The bathroom is fresh and light and benefits from underfloor heating and a heated towel rail. With a tiled floor, shower fitted over the bath, toilet, basin and heated towel rail.
Outside, a courtyard area with outdoor furniture and flower beds is a wonderful place to sit in the sun, listen to the birdsong, and enjoy a barbecue. A washing line is provided for hanging wetsuits and an outside tap is handy for washing sand off after a day at the beach.
Underthuel Cottage adjoins the owners’ house next door (please be aware that the owners’ dog is occasionally outside), however it is a self-contained property with its own entrance, outdoor area and parking space for one car. Heated by night storage heaters and the wood burner, fuel for the wood burner can be purchased from the owner next door.
Bolingey is a peaceful hamlet nestled in a pretty valley. A mostly level walk from the hustle and bustle of Perranporth, it is near enough to walk to the seaside shops, bars and restaurants, but far enough away to retreat if you prefer a quiet and restful break! There are many activities in the nearby vicinity including beautiful walks, horse riding and golf.
Underthuel Cottage is also perfectly positioned to explore the rest of Cornwall: the cathedral city of Truro and beautiful beaches of Newquay are both only nine miles away, and the marine heritage of Falmouth, art of St Ives, the Eden Project and many National Trust properties and gardens are all within an easy drive.

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.
