Perranporth is well placed in North Cornwall to be an ideal base to explore the county, close to Newquay and St Ives.  The resort has 3 miles of beach which is golden and sandy although the Holiday Park has direct access to it's own private beach - so you're spoilt for choice !

There is a good selection of places to eat and drink with many having superb views over the beach...ideal if you want a breather but still want to keep an eye on the younger ones !

The boating lake in the village is a great place to try and get your "sea legs" before venturing out into the sea – good fun for all the family !  There's a surf school on the holiday park as well.


Visitors will discover the unexpected gem of Trerice hidden behind typical North Cornwall lanes with high hedges covered in wild flowers.  The unpretentious gateway to Trerice leads to this exquisite Elizabethan Manor and the walled gardens.  A superb tearoom will top off a great day out.

Imagine the feeling as you skim across the water, the wind and sun on your face and the spray firing into the air from your kitesurf board or, perhaps, the sensation of gliding across the sand in a kite buggy or kite landboard...well, it's all possible at the local Kite School and it'll create memories that last a long time.

If you have a sweet tooth then why not see ice cream being made at Callestick Farm; their cows roam the pastures and contribute the vital ingredient to make completely natural ice cream full of rich dairy goodness with nothing artificial added.ResortBeachPerran

An ideal way to see your resort is from the air and, indeed, short pleasure flights are available at Perranporth Airfield just above the village. 

Newquay is just 20 minutes away and has 11 superb beaches, coastal walks and scenery.  Of course, the town is best known for being a surfing paradise but there is also the opportunity to explore the rock pools or play in the dunes.

You'll love the shops (or tea rooms when you need a break !), and if you still have energy to burn then there is plenty of nightlife. 

Out & About

The Zoo is well worth a visit as is the Sea Life Centre and if you need to cool off, then Newquay Waterworld is the ideal place (in all weathers !) with two pools, water flumes, the water cannon and much more.

Situated halfway along the length of Cornwall, the city of Truro stands proud as Cornwall's capital.  The cathedral dominates the city centre beautifully and the museum and art gallery, which houses a splendid collection, tell the story of both Truro and Cornwall.  There is an excellent selection of high street shops as well as local retailers to choose from and plenty of places to stop for refreshment.ResortPerranporthbeach

St. Agnes is a picturesque village not far from Perranporth which is steeped in mining history but retains atraditional Cornish atmosphere.  There are four varied beaches, plenty of dramatic coastal walks and breathtaking scenery.  Of course, after all that activity, there are many places to have that cream tea or just a pot of tea !
