Perranporth village is in close proximity and entices sunbathers, surfers and families with its three mile long sandy shores, where you and your family can have lunch in the Watering Hole pub situated in a prime position directly on the beach. The bustling and lively town of Newquay is a short drive away here you can experience the cool vibe of the surfing Mecca and perhaps even give it a go yourself. In the other direction, also a short drive, is the trendy town of St Agnes.

St Agnes is a popular and picturesque, north coast village just 9 miles from Truro and 5 miles from Redruth, the village itself was originally based around the mining of tin, copper and arsenic which started in prehistoric times and continued until the 20th century, other local industries are farming and fishing but more recently tourism has risen to the fore. There have been several attempts to build a harbour in St Agnes, the most recent succumbed to a storm in 1915-16, however the glorious sandy beaches more than compensate. The village offers many restaurants, pubs, cafes and take aways (Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Fish & Chips etc) There are also plenty of small galleries as well as a free museum on the outskirts. The village also has a supermarket, butchers, post office, bank, bakers, chemist, fruit and veg, florist as well as some excellent gift shops. It is also a walkers heaven being perfectly situated for exploring the coastal paths, the captivating history and the beautiful nearby beaches of Trevaunance Cove and Trevellas Porth at St Agnes and Chapel Porth. St Agnes Beacon is a 328 foot climb, and on a fine day you can see from coast to coast. The view is spectacular and well worth the climb.

These days Newquay’s excellent surfing waters are the town’s main industry, where as it was originally a major export port for the counties mining efforts, as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach, where Rick Steins seafood restaurant is located, holds many surfing competitions throughout the year, and also hosts Run to the Sun over May Bank holiday, a VW and Custom Car Show. Both the Womens and Mens Gig Championships are held here, as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub-tropical gardens in the centre of the town. There is also Newquay Golf Course which backs on to Fistral Beach, a cinema, Waterworld Leisure Centre, Blue Reef Aquarium and a Sainsburys all within walking distance. There is a Morrisons Supermarket on the outskirts of town.

Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a ‘ski resort on a beach’ and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. Fifteen Cornwall, founded by Jamie Oliver in 2002 sits on top of the two mile beach at Watergate offering inspirational views for the young chefs and professionals to create fantastic menus from local and seasonal produce. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out.
