Perranuthnoe Holidays

Located in Mounts Bay, Perranuthnoe is perfect for those looking to escape the crowds and enjoy the serenity that Cornwall has to offer. Described as a countryside village by the sea, Peranuthnoe is secluded enough to ensure a peaceful stay, but close enough to the bustling town of Marazion if you fancy a more lively atmosphere. With the Lizard Peninsula within easy reach, Perranuthnoe is perfect for walking holidays and exploring the rugged coastline.

Things to do in Perranuthnoe

Dating back to the 12th century, Perranuthnoe's village pub named the 'Victoria Inn' is thought to be the oldest recorded Inn in Cornwall. Full of charm and character, this award winning pub is well worth a visit.

A short walk from the pub is the picturesque Perranuthnoe Church, which is dedicated to Cornwall's patron saint, St Piran. The church stands on the site of a former church dating back to 1160, and includes features from the original church, such as a Norman font.

Perranuthnoe beach, (also known as Perran Sands) offers good surfing when the conditions are right, and is ideal for beach-goers with its golden sands, cafe and car park. Be sure to visit at low tide however as there is very little left of the beach when the tide comes in! The Cabin Cafe offers stunning views and is featured in our blog: The best beach-front cafes in West Cornwall.

A popular fishing spot, even at low tide, Perranuthnoe is a favoured spot with the locals for seabass and dogfish.

The 'Village Crafts' centre located in a converted barn in the heart of the village offers an extensive range of local artwork, crafts, gifts, jewellery, and country clothing. 

The Perranuthnoe Circular walk follows part of the South West Coast Path, which offers great views of St Michael's Mount, before cutting inland and back to Perranuthnoe via fields and villages.

The nearby Prussia Cove is a small and secluded rocky cove, surrounded by organic farmland and woodland has a famous history of smuggling!

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Oamaru Barn is the perfect location for walking and exploring the surrounding areas . Very peaceful .

Perfect setting for a base in West Cornwall, the barn has everything you can possibly need. A wonderful quiet setting with great view across Mounts Bay. Absolutely loved our stay here, was sad we had to go home.

What a wonderful spot. just as described. our dogs loved it and so did we.

Oamaru Barn is in a wonderful location overlooking Mounts Bay, perfect for walking on the South West coast path. Even on a wet and windy winter's day the Barn is very cosy and warm and offers great views. There are some lovely places to eat out nearby and on this part of the coast you are never far from anywhere.

This is a lovely property in a fantastic location - sea views, taking in St. Michael’s mount; stepping out of the door pretty much leads you into the coast path and a very short walk down to the beach and Perranuthnoe itself. The property is well appointed and very comfortable; we’ve had a great break and reserved the place again for next year, before we even left!

This was our fourth visit to Oamaru and, as always, lived up to our expectations. All amenities are very good and the views are absolutely stunning. The surrounding area is very good for walking our dogs and we made regular walks down to the village of Perranuthnoe. Peppercorn Café and the Cabin are well worth a visit too. Already booked to return in May next year, but really very disappointed we couldn't book for our two weeks in August.

A wonderful comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage with a view to die for. Not to far off the beaten track but a quiet location without isolation. We will return

Loved Oamaru Barn everything you could imagine you need in self catering was catered for . Lovely spacious accommodation and great sea views and view of St Michaels Mount. Loved it so much have booked again for next year.

Oamaru is the perfect base. This was our third visit and we love the area and it has the best view! Comfortable and the loveliest beach is only a short walk away and The Cabin is great for coffee and cake.

We recently spent 2 weeks in Oamaru Barn, out second visit and once again it didn’t disappoint. Lovely and clean and everything you need on hand for a perfect holiday. Nice neat enclosed garden for our energetic 3 year old golden retriever to play in, very important as we love to have her with us. We have already booked 2 weeks for June 2020 and have recommended to our friends and extended family. Booking staff a pleasure to deal with too, thank you.

It is not often that the photos match reality but with Omaru Barn they do. The view from the cottage of St Michaels's Mount is exactly like the photo.We would most certainly like to visit again.

Fabulous cottage, amazing views. Perfect for two couples and a dog. Would love to come back.

Another fantastic stay at Oamaru Barn. Location and views are quite superb. We have now stayed here three times and don't know of a better place to stay. Looking forward to returning again this August and May next year. Really disappointed we couldn't get it for August next year!

Such a wonderful property with stunning views and great walks on your doorstep, so good we have already booked for another holiday here!

Lovely holiday home. Omarua Barn meets all our needs for a perfect holiday. Its especially ideal for our dogs who loved the surrounding area, its perfect for them. Thank you to all concerned.

Perfect place to stay for walks along the coastal path. Well equipped and comfortable. Close to Penzance and brilliant farm shop just near the end of the lane.

Oamaru Barn is a fantastic place to stay. The view is amazing and the location too as you are right on the coastal path. It is great for dogs as the garden is enclosed and we also took our 4 month old baby and it worked well for her too as we fitted a travel cot in the bedroom fine. Overall a great stay

We had a perfect time at this barn.Thank you

A lovely little cottage, in a great location, for both relaxing with the most beautiful views and exploring the local area. With everything you need provided (linen, towels, kitchen store cupboard, toiletries, wood for fire, welcome pack) you can literally arrive empty handed and start your holiday straight away!

Stunning location and fantastic barn conversion. Will definitely be back

We recently stayed in Oamaru Barn with our 2 year old golden retriever. The secure garden was perfect for our energetic young dog to race around in. This is very important to as we like to take her on holiday with us. The property is very comfortable and extremely well equipped and the views over Mounts Bay and view of St Michaels Mount stunning. Will definitely book to stay there again. Just lovely, thank you

Oamaru Barn is a pleasure to look forward staying at! It’s location and views are second to none and we’ve been travelling to Cornwall for many many years this is possibly one of the best locations we’ve ever stayed at! And most of all my grand daughter loves it! Thanks Aspects this really was a gem of a find.

Stayed at Oamaru Barn for a week at the beginning of May with some friends and our dogs. We were very impressed with the decor, all very clean and extremely well equipped. Really liked the fact it was so warm and cosy. Good parking and fantastic walking from there. Lovely views and good pubs to eat nearby, particularly liked the Lion and the Lamb, Ashton, very good food and sensible prices. Also recommend the Hut for "proper job" hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. Lovely weather couldn't ask for more.

We had such an amazing stay, perfect location and accommodation. Everything you need is there, it was warm, cosy and very clean. We would recommend to anyone who wants lovely walks, cosy place to stay and very accommodating to families and their fury friends

Comfortable cosy well presented great position

A lovely cottage with fantastic views over St Michael's Mount. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped and ideally situated for exploring West Cornwall.

Lovely cottage, ideal for any season stay. Fabulous views and in a nice quiet location.

Oamaru Barn is a lovely cottage in a quite magical location.......what can be better after a long drive than to arrive to a clean, light and airey cottage with a Cornish Cream tea ready to eat whilst enjoying the fabulous view of St Michael's Mount. No wonder people return year after year.

Oamaru is a true home from home. It's a great base and very comfortable, with amazing views. This was our second visit and we hope to return.

Wonderful place to stay, lots of lovely touches (e.g. A tub of clotted cream as a welcome present!). The views across Mount's Bay were fantastic, and it was a great base for exploring lots of West Cornwall.

Well equipped, cosy, amazing views, friendly and helpful owners. The cream tea which was waiting for us on arrival was a very welcoming touch

All in all Oamaru Barn is one of the best places we have stayed in. Easy access in and out of the lane, garden was great for the dogs, all enclosed. Could leave them on there own out there and not worry they would get out! Will definitely consider booking it again in the future. The owner was very nice and friendly too. My grand daughter forgot her binoculars and she (the owner) went back to her house and lent her a pair that she had. Little things like that mean a lot! We really enjoyed our week. Virtually everything about the place was exceptional. Thanks very much.

Oamaru was just like home from home - everything you needed was there

Oamaru Cottage exceeded our expectations. It is very well designed internally, with a good balance between, kitchen practicalities, functional dining area and a relaxing sitting area. There is a feeling of space in the cottage and the colour scheme is harmonious. Everywhere is clean and fresh. The views of the sea from the windows, with the changing light on St Michael's Mount, is a real bonus. Altogether a lovely cottage which has a very welcoming feel.

The views were fantastic. The farm workers very friendly. The cottage was was and cosy.

perfect place to Chill we will be back

A very comfortable and well equipped cottage. Wonderful views across the bay and ideal location if you have a dog, so many walks to choose from.

Finished to a high standard. A comments book was there, and it was interesting to see other people's comments and how quick things were addressed and resolved. (might seem small but the week before we stayed there it was commented on no cork screw and we had a corkscrew in the draw when we got there) it may seem a small thing but it counts for a lot to know that the book is left there for a reason it is read and acted on. very impressed, things like this is what brings people back again and again

Beautiful location, perfect also for dogs and children!

A gorgeous and comfortable cottage, perfect for a family of four. The wonderful Perran Sands is only a walk away and we will definitely be back.

A lovely location, the farmers are very friendly, an easy 5 minutes from Penzance, overall really happy with the location especially the views and the ability to sit outside, watching the mount and the sunset quaffing a pleasant wine.

This cottage ticks all the boxes, for a coastal walking holiday with a restful location to unwind at the end of the day. With a splendid view of Mounts Bay

A wonderful place to stay in a stunning location. Everything you need and more is provided. Will definitely be going back!

Oamaru Barn is the best accommodation we have stayed in after many holidays in Cornwall. It is spacious and relaxing. Fantastic views and gardens each side to capture sun at all times of day. Very clean and well furnished with quality fittings, made it home from home. Great for dogs/children with an an enclosed garden with tables and chairs outside too. Everything you may need is in the cottage; very thoughtful owners.

Oamaru Barn is the perfect place for a holiday in cornwall. We. Enjoyed every minute and would definitely book again.

A very well appointed comfortable cottage with excellent views and a good, sensible and practical approach to customers. Would certainly use it again, as we visit the area once a year
