    • “Great cottage in great location we will try to book this again”

    Mr Taylor, Radstock, August 2018

    • “The cottage is lovely and very well equipped. Home from home really the only thing I would recommend for this cottage is that the showers could do with an up date as they are a bit old fashioned and not very powerful for washing long hair. Otherwise a really enjoyable place to stay.”

    Mrs Watkins, NORTHWICH, June 2018

    • “Perfect location with village shop, excellent pub within walking distance and lovely garden centre. The cottage was cosy with everything you need. The cottage garden was very pretty and the area was lovely and quiet. Only 10 minutes to Perranporth and slightly further to Holywell Beach, both beautiful and dog friendly. Would definitely return.”

    Mrs Lightfoot, WANTAGE, May 2018

Regional Information

GOONHAVERN Perranporth 2.5 miles; Newquay 6 miles; Truro 9 miles. Goonhavern is a small Cornish village in an excellent position just two and a half miles inland from Perranporth, which lies in the heart of Poldark country, the setting for the novels of Winston Graham, who lived in Perranporth in the 1930s. Goonhavern is an active community with a traditional inn, village shop, garden centre and children’s playground. Once known as the source of the finest tin, the community still retains reminders of their rich heritage including abandoned pump houses, mine shafts and workers’ cottages. The nearby town of Perranporth has a beautiful sandy beach which at low tide stretches to three miles long and is overlooked by craggy rocks suitable for rock pooling. The beach is lifeguarded in summer, providing a popular family destination and hosted the 2016 British National Surfing Championships. Perranpoth also offers a small selection of shops, restaurants and pubs including The Watering Hole, a unique pub situated on the sand in the middle of the beach offering live entertainment with a great atmosphere, good food and an amazing view of the sunset! The local Blue Hills museum and Perranzabuloe Folk Museum are both well worth a visit to understand the rich heritage of this coastal area. Further afield are the miles of sandy beaches at Crantock and Holywell Bay and the breathtaking coastal walks around St Agnes, much of it owned by the National Trust. For a greater selection of nightlife, restaurants and attractions why not head for Truro (9 miles) or the coastal resort of Newquay (6 miles)? Newquay is famed for its world-class surfing and has something for every taste and age including the popular Zoo, Waterworld indoor pool and the Blue Reef Aquarium. A perfect holiday base with activities to suit everyone.
