Perranporth is a small, compact village, fronted by a glorious, three mile stretch of golden sand. This means that once you leave your accommodation or park the car, nothing is further than a few minutes stroll away!
The beautifully manicured and sheltered Clock Gardens are at the end of the High Street (St Pirans Road) and just across the road you'll find Perranporths' pretty boating lake. This is a peaceful haven at the Southern end of the village and the perfect place for watching the world go by from a sunny bench. Another couple of minutes walk and you'll find yourself in Perranporth park, a beautiful grassy area nestled in the valley with tennis courts and a childrens play area. It's a glorious sun trap here if you want to avoid the brisk sea breeze and it's the perfect place to kick a ball around or lay your rug down for a picnic.
Perranporth village has evolved around the beach and the golden sands are less than a couple of minutes from the High Street. The beach provides endless opportunities for leisurely walks with incredible scenery. For those wishing for something a little more challenging, the South West Coast Path is easily accessible within a few minutes walk from the village, arguably boasting some of the most spectacular ocean vistas in the world!?
