No 34 The Dunes

Got dog, will travel. And do it stylishly too. No 34 the Dunes is a stunning beachside property overlooking Perranporth Beach, one of the few beaches in Cornwall that allow dogs all year round. This chic three-bedroom property gets our vote!


Ideal for families or large groups, Pendriffey is a very pretty renovated Victorian country house with five bedrooms. It is not far from very unspoilt coastline. Stay here and head to Talland Bay for fishing, rock-pooling, swimming and snorkelling. A dreamy spot for making memories.

Coastguard Cottage West

Ah, Trevose. How we love you. This gem of a property is highly sought after for its stunning panoramic views and proximity to Booby’s Bay; you can see for miles along the coast. It is a conversion of two of the three cottages originally built for the coastguard. It has three bedrooms and a further two can be rented in the barn across the courtyard. Previous guests describe it as cosy and homely.

Tonga, Porthtowan

Those views! Check out the wildly dramatic scenery of the North Cornish Coast from the comfort of Tonga, a four-bedroom contemporary property that has been built to maximize the awe-inspiring views across the bay from St Ives to St Agnes. Expect modcons and an enviable location.


Location matters in Cornwall, especially in silly season when the traffic can be a headache. The renovated five-bedroom bungalow Cowries has loyal fans; it’s a ten-minute walk to the glorious sandy beach of Constantine Bay and also the Trevose Golf Club. It has a well equipped kitchen and pretty garden that isn’t overlooked.

Orchard Cottage

Soak in the sea air and watch the boats potter around Cornwall’s best working fishing harbour from the comfort of Orchard Cottage in Newlyn. This four-bedroom cottage boasts a spacious kitchen diner and outside dining space.
