Nearest pub

The Bolingey Inn (60 yards)

Oozing with old world charm, The Bolingey Inn combines hearty home-cooked food with a welcoming atmosphere. With an emphasis on local produce and regularly rotating real ales, the pub is a popular choice and booking in advance is advised for the end of the week.

Frustratingly disappointing

This pub has a good selection of real ales, a good looking menu and a nice old world charm but the attitude of management makes it difficult to enjoy. Impossible for us to dine as a walk-in (even when the restaurant was empty), so book early in your stay. The pub took an advanced booking for our party of 12 then chose to tell us the day before that this would be hosted on two separate tables. Given this was a 50th birthday celebration with people flying in from overseas to attend, hardly ideal. We cancelled and found an excellent venue with a terrace overlooking Perranporth Beach. Oh, and the bathrooms are the worst I have seen in England for decades.

Nearest beach

Perranporth Beach (1 mile)

Say Perranporth to anyone from Cornwall and they will immediately know where you mean. A popular family-friendly beach on the edge of Perranporth town, Perranporth Beach is a huge three-mile belt of golden sand meeting an expanse of blue sea. A hit amongst all ages, Perranporth appeals to all, from sports enthusiasts looking to hit the waves to sun-lovers ready to kick back in the sand. A natural sea pool by Chapel Rock means that everyone of all abilities can enjoy the water and lifeguards are on duty in the summer. Dogs on leads are allowed year-round and all facilities are available nearby.

Superb for the Family

This is a great beach the whole family can enjoy. Three miles of sand. Great for surfing, sandcastle building, lifeguarded swimming areas and easy access to nearby facilities including plenty of places to hire or buy a wetsuit. Can get crowded on sunny days in the summer.
On windy days the nearby Trevaunance Cove (South) or Holywell (North) can often be more sheltered.
Dogs can be walked on the beach here year round.
Nudists from Army Camp lurk at the far North End.

Nearest walk

Perranporth to Trevellas (1 mile)

Courtesy of iwalkcornwall, this walk follows the Cornish coastal path past the blowholes of Shag Rock and the mineral lodes of Cligga Head. Rough in places, this walk graded as moderate and is just over five miles. Dogs are allowed on the beach at Perranporth all year round.

Nearest town

Perranporth (1 mile)

Tin mining was once the raison d’etre of Perranporth but now it is more famous for surfing and sand yachting. Relaxation is the principal activity here and with miles upon miles of sand to play on, it’s not difficult to unwind in Perranporth. Away from the beach, Perranporth has a lively music scene with bands performing every weekend at the Watering Hole, a popular pub, and an annual celebration of folk music, the Lowender Perran Festival each autumn.

Also nearby

The Hidden Hut (13 miles)

A beach cafe in the most rustic sense - a beachside shed with some outdoor seating. It is a National Trust-owned hut, but run by a local couple who provide 'Feast Nights' - now made famous by their appearance on ITV's 'Cornwall with Caroline Quentin'. You need to buy tickets, but the hut is generally open to everyone, except during the winter, so check times on their Web site.

Being relatively local to the area, we felt it was time to see if this often-mentioned beach cafe lived up to it's reputation....and it did! On a sunny August Sunday, the beach was busy and so was the Hidden Hut. Be prepared to queue - for quite a while - but once you've selected which of the mouthwatering options to go for, you've plenty of choice of places to sit and enjoy the really well cooked food and the amazing location. No doubt this will be the first of many visits to come!

Hidden Treasure

This delightful little restaurant is a gem, we were really warmly welcomed in by the very attentive waitress. It only seats around 25 people, which adds to its appeal for me, it's beautifully decorated in a contemporary style. We called in for lunch - and were not disappointed with the freshly made crab sandwiches we indulged in! I would definitely visit again - maybe next time for dinner, the menu sounded lovely and all the food that was brought out looked fabulous, very reasonably priced too! Be sure to make a booking as my guess is they get quite busy!

Trebah Garden (16 miles)

Family and dog-friendly, Trebah covers 26 acres, converting a small corner of Cornwall into a sub-tropical paradise. Located above the Helford River, every inch of Trebah is covered by lush vegetation, with 100-year old rhododendrons, magnolias and camellias kicking off the season with an explosion of colour.

I was really looking forward to visiting Trebah but was really disappointed, I was only able to go out of the reception building in my wheelchair when I was faced with the most sever decline and was told that it was like that all the way. It was very unsafe for me to go any further, so had to turn round and go out of the gardens

A mini paradise

This was such a wonderful find. A complete tropical paradise hidden away down the creek. You really feel like you have disappeared to a magical world here and it's a great place to escape. Beautiful water gardens and walks through the woods, which eventually lead down to a private secluded beach. Would happily come here time and again. Lovely cafe as well and there's also a cafe on the beach.

We visited the gardens on Father's Day (three generations of us!) and it was a lovely day out.

The adventure play areas within the gardens were great for the kids.

We love Trebah Gardens, they are also dog friendly, though unfortunately we did see evidence that some dog owners were not respecting the fact that clearing up is a must if this is to continue.

Suitable for young and old

I would recommend this garden for anyone. The walks around the garden can be taken at any pace and are endlessly fascinating for young children as well as older relatives. Even those who may not be as agile as they once were will be able to manage a good deal of the garden and there are plenty of places to stop, admire the view and rest. The staff are very helpful, always ready to discuss an unusual plant and the cafe is run by a group of very cheerful women, who provide simple but delicious food.
