A lovely traditional detached cottage in the heart of Perranporth with a gorgeous cottage garden and extensive parking, Woodbine Cottage is located moments from the shops and cafes, and less than five minutes’ level walk to the beach.
The cottage, which is over 150 years old, has been beautifully modernised whilst retaining many of its original features, providing a charming Cornish retreat by the coast.
The property is accessed through a gate into the fully enclosed garden where there is a long drive with ample parking for up to five cars. The garden is planted with flower beds and a large lawn, and a suntrap patio outside the house enjoys the sunshine throughout the day, providing the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee or dinner outside. On the patio is an outdoor table with benches and chairs, and a barbecue.
The front door opens into the lounge with beamed ceiling, comfortably furnished with a large corner sofa and footstool, wall mounted smart TV and a log burner (not in use). The spacious and fully equipped kitchen diner is fitted with cream cupboards and wooden worktops, an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A large oak dining table seats six (plus a highchair is kept in the under stairs cupboard) and a back door opens to a gravelled area with a washing line.
Upstairs, three bedrooms sleep six. Bedroom one is furnished with a double bed (4’6”), built-in wardrobes (with a concealed TV) and ample storage. Bedroom two is another double room (4’6” double bed) with dressing table and storage cupboard, and bedroom three has two single beds (3’ each) and a chest of drawers. The family bathroom is fitted with an electric shower over the bath, toilet and basin. The property is heated by oil central heating, making it cosy even on chillier days, and welcomes one dog.
Linen & towels
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.
