Things To Do?

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me....

There are 6 adults travelling to Perranporth in September and we're looking for things to do and see - we don't mind travelling a bit but are not sure of the area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Lou.

Ok, not sure what you like to do, so have included a few random things.

Eden Project

Lost Gardens of Helligan

surfing

Cycle along the Camel Trail

Lanhydrock House

And that's just a few. You also have the wonderful coast paths to walk, beaches to enjoy, and just time to relax.

Have a read of this to get a general feel for the area.

Thank you so much for that - it's a great help, I'd forgotten about the Eden Project!

One of the best things about Perranporth, apart from the beach, is the fact that it is so central, so you can go lots of places in a short time. A few more ideas are; if the weather is good, and it often is in June and September, is to get the boat or train from Truro to Falmouth,

http://www.enterprise-boats.co.uk

you could have a look around the Cathedral city of Truro first, it has good shops (and also a food and drink festival on September 23/24/25), then spend the afternoon in Falmouth (depending on boat times). A good place for Sunday lunch is Trevaskis Farm nr Hayle, http://www.trevaskisfarm.co.uk

not far away from St Ives if you wanted to wander around there after, it's well worth a visit. Or even a scenic drive to Watergate Bay for a nice walk on the beach and maybe breakfast or lunch at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen.

The Watering Hole at Perranporth is a pub on the beach, a great place to visit on a Saturday in the late afternoon, eat crab cakes and watch the sunset, then listen to the live music they usually have there.

Enjoy it.

Take a look at http://www.cata.co.uk/

Many of Cornwalls attractions are members and there are often special offers and discounts on different attractions on the website.

Ah, that's fab, thank you so much, I was worried we wouldn't have anything to do - now I'm worried we won't have time to fit it all in!

Hi

We have been going to Perranporth for the last 10 years (roll on June!), there is loads to do in the area, can highly recommend a trip into Truro (can get the bus there and back quite easily, the old Alehouse in the town is a great place to try local ales and do very nice food).

If you are going to St Ives, best to drive to Lelant and go in by train, stunning views of Carbis Bay. Parking is a nightmare in the town itself.

Perranporth has some great places to get a bite to eat and a few supermarkets to stock up on bits and bobs if self-catering.

Need anymore help, just shout, you will love it.

If you want something aimed at grownups, you could always check out some of Cornwall's breweries. They're indoors (handy given September weather), educational and end with beer tasting. Take a look at holidaycottagesindevonandcornwall.co.uk/disc… for some suggestions on good ones (breweries that is) to try.

If you're looking for a bit of shopping and some nice places to eat I'd recommend, on the other side of Cornwall, a visit to St Austell, maybe a drive through Fowey and Polperro but Looe is a lovely place to go to, too, if you're looking for some nice walks and good shops.

If you are looking for some National Trust places the nearest to you is Trerice, three miles South, East of Newquay. It is a stunning Elizabethan Manor with delightful gardens. Another is East Pool Mine, near Redruth, where you can learn about the History of the Cornish Mining World. Godrevy is another house and gardens near to Hayle, East of Perranporth.

Whatever you do, I hope you have a lovely holiday!

Also, forgot to mention some National Trust Places, You have the nearest to where you are, Trerice, three miles south, east from Newquay. Trerice is a stunning Elizabethan Manor set in delightful gardens. Another is Godrevy House and Gardens on the coast, near to Hayle which is East from Perranporth. East Pool Mine near Redruth is somewhere where you can learn about the history of the Cornish Mining world. Have a lovely time!
