    “Beautiful quiet location, not too far from beaches, or local shops, pub.”

    Well equipped kitchen, though felt a small freezer would have been handy for ice. Hardly ever saw the owners, so really felt like you were there alone.

Ascend the stairs to the first floor when you are feeling peckish to find the kitchen/diner, where a homely kitchen space with cream units containing all the appliances you need for a self-catered stay.

Retire to the double bedroom at the end of the day, with neutral hues creating a tranquil place to rest, and an en-suite shower room adjoining it so you only have to take a few steps before you are having a hot shower and preparing for your day.

You will hardly be able to tear yourself away from Belmont, with it's hot tub awaiting you to take a dip in the warm bubbles, and a gym easily situated there for an energising workout, all followed by indulging in some time in the sauna to come out feeling brand new.

The village of Goonhavern has all you need for essentials with a store, post office and popular garden centre with well utilised cafe/ restaurant and a gastro pub too.

You are perfectly placed to hop over to the coastal beach town of Perranporth where gorgeous beaches with golden sand and bright blue waters await you, with the winding streets of quaint shops and pubs waiting to be explored.

Surfers will love the easy access to Newquay as well, the surfing capital with the famous Cribbar reef offering incredible waves, and if you're new to it all take a surfing lesson at one of the several surf schools to learn the basics.

About the location


Perranporth 2 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. Perranporth 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 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. Truro (9 miles) the UK's most Southerly city is a vibrant centre of shopping, farmers markets, culture and impressive architecture right in the heart of Cornwall. Centre stage is Truro Cathedral. You will also find the River Fal, here you can catch a boat trip to Falmouth from the riverbank.

Please also advise, that it takes TWO people to lift the cover to the Hot Tub. (It is heavy - so for Health & Safety purposes).
