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.

Lovely comfortable accommodation. Views outstanding. The owners have thought of everything. Home from home. Welcome pack very nice touch. Lovely places to visit we will hopefully be back. Loved our much needed holiday following lockdown. Thank you .

Tairua was a sweet little property in a wonderful location with views to die for. Aspects attention to detail was amazing and in these Covid times the property was as clean as a whistle, marvellous!

Beautiful beautiful beautiful!!! Idyllic setting and pretty cottage.

Tairua cottage was lovely, clean and very comfortable. The cottage is positioned in the perfect location overlooking the sea. With coastal walks and Perranuthnoe beach close by you can enjoy the immediate surroundings or discover more of Cornwall from here. It offers the perfect family getaway in one of the most beautiful areas of Cornwall. We will definitely be returning to this lovely cottage again.

Tairua has everything you need for a relaxing break. and the most stunning views. We had a great holiday.

A wonderful peaceful location with an ever changing view across Mounts Bay. Very comfortable and we'll equipped. So many walks from Tauria, ideal for dog walking

We love the place and would go back again without hesitation. Only wish we could get a week next Sept!

A great holiday! Quiet and peaceful with access to coastal path and a nice beach in walking distance. Loved watching the sunset from Tairua over the bay

Second time visiting the area our first time was in the centre of penzance but this was the much better location for us as it had outdoor space for the kids and parking which the other didn't have. The location and views were amazing and offers great walks to nearby coves (kids aged 6 and 3 both walked with ease there) and beach which sadly we only found the last day but spent the whole day there it was a great beach. Perfect location to explore other areas and a great base with plenty of equipment/room inside for us four.

A well equipped cottage with beautiful views of the sea. The kitchen has everything (including cafetiere!) and the sofas are comfortable, perfect for listening to the waves! The outside seating area is a gorgeous place to eat and the easy garden chairs delightful to sit in and watch the sun go down, or the local wildlife! The black out blinds were appreciated in the bedrooms and there was lots of space to hang clothes in the master bedroom or store in a chest of drawers / under the beds in the twin room. With fantastic views of the sea and the beach just an easy walk down a well beaten track, this is the perfect place for a Cornish holiday! Perran Sands is not busy: great for swimming, building sandcastles and body boarding, with 2 lovely cafés close by serving delicious food. The owners have thoughtfully left suggestions of walks and we enjoyed part of the Cornish coastal path from the cottage. Marazion, St Michael's Mount, Penzance are all a short drive away as are several supermarkets at Long Rock.

We really enjoyed our week at Tairua. The views over Mounts Bay are stunning and the cottage itself is very tastefully decorated. It was well located for Perranuthnoe beach and walks along the south west coast path.

Lovely single storey barn, well equipped and furnished, easy parking, fantastic location for West Cornwall and beyond, we’ll be back.

Another great week at this superb cottage - even in a wet and cold January it is exactly where I want to be!

We had such an amazing stay in Tairua. The view from the sofa through the patio doors to the sea was breathtaking and very relaxing. The cabin was extremely well equipped with kitchen utensils etc as we booked for the last week in October and had a few stay in meals in the evening. So glad I took my slow cooker with me after all day coastal walks. The place was spotlessly clean and the beautiful welcome basket of scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam was an unexpected and much appreciated touch. The fresh alstroemeria flowers in the jug lasted all week and put a smile on our faces every day. Thankyou so very much for a much needed romantic break. Andrew and Julie

One of the best holiday companies we've used. The information they provide for your stay & places to visit etc is excellent. Highly recommend aspect-holidays.

We had previously stayed in Omarua so knew the area but the views from Tairua are spectacular. The decor is lovely and the cottage felt very cosy and had a lovely feel to it. Will definitely book to stay here again.

Had a great stay at Tairua. Outstanding view, even from the sofa. Short walk to the beach. Location is very quiet. Second bedroom perfect size for 10 and 8 year old. Welcome basket was a nice touch.

The views are breathtaking, the best from any cottage we have ever stayed in.

Gorgeous little cottage with an outstanding view We would happily go there again

Great property, great facilities within the property and a fantastic location. Tairua ticked all the boxes for us. Thank you for the scones on arrival , a nice touch.

Myself and my family enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Tiarua. From the booking process to leaving it was a smooth pleasant and throughly enjoyable experience. A beautiful barn conversion, tastefully decorated and furnished. The view from the accommodation we could look at forever.

We absolutely loved Tairua! The location was fantastic, tucked away from the main road with wide sea views overlooking Mount's Bay, but still within easy reach of all west Cornwall attractions. The coast path is just down the road and it's a short walk from the cottage to a nearby beach, Perranuthnoe village or to Trevelyan farm shop. The cottage is beautifully restored and decorated with lovely pictures and coastal arts. It was very clean and well equipped. However compact it said in description, our family of four fitted in well. We definitely plan on coming back.

Beautifully situated above the village facing the sea. Cozy well equipped home from home an absolute gem of a place. Parking next to accommodation, Wifi, 20 mins stroll via coastal path to the pub, beach & beachside cafe.Outside seating dining for those sunny days. 5*

A perfect rural location - quiet and secluded - but an easy drive to all the sights of West Cornwall. Just off the coastal path for bracing walks. Beautiful views across Mounts Bay. While compact Tairua had everything required for a family of four (children aged 8 & 13).

Excellent place to stay in .can't fault peaceful and relaxing. I will book again.

Clean, cosy and well equipped cottage. Good location. Would definitely recommend to my friends and would certainly holiday there again.

Nicky my niece and I had a wonderful time, the property was spotless on arrival and we settled in quickly, everything was to our liking. Because I am disabled I would like to make a suggestion, that a plastic stool is supplied in the shower, so anyone not able to stand for long can sit to shower, this is in no way a criticism, if I was going to Tairua again I would take my own and may make it part of my holiday luggage. Congratulations on a beautiful location, I hope to return soon.

A quiet location with open sea view

Lovely cottage, tastefully decorated and well equipped. Great views, stunning walks. Loved the welcome scones!!

Lovely little cottage in great location for exploring or simply walking to the beach. Throughly enjoyed our stay, we will be back.

We loved our stay at Tairua so much. Everything about it was perfect. The location, the view, the peace and quiet, the furnishings. Perfect. It was easily the best property we've ever rented and would recommend it to anyone. The beach is easily accessible from the property but not, it seems, to the general public so it felt like our own private beach at times. Bliss!!

We had a fabulous week in the property. We were made to feel very welcome by the owner, Nick, and the neighbouring farmer who we met when we stayed last year.

The cottage is in a prime location allowing us to enjoy the most glorious sunsets. It had everything we needed as a family of four and a small dog.

Very pleased with every part of our booking. Received emails from Aspects during our stay keeping us updated with WiFi fixing. Tairua was in an excellent location - very peaceful and quiet but easy to get to all parts of South Cornwall. Nic and Allen were welcoming and friendly - we appreciated the Cornish goodies apologising for disruption to WiFi (which we didn’t experience anyway!) The only very minor improvement I would suggest would be to have a cafetière for making fresh coffee but that’s just a suggestion. Everything was perfect for our stay and we’d recommend the place for couples.

This property is good for a small family as the coastal paths are close by.

This is a wonderful cottage, equipped to a very high standard and extremely cosy and comfortable, even in the teeth of a gale! Its position overlooking Mount's Bay could not be bettered.

Lovely cottage with excellent sea views. All the amenities available and they seem to have thought of everything, like being at home

We had a lovely week in this barn conversion. I was much bigger than we expected and the location was perfect for exploring the local area. The views were incredible.

The cottage was outstanding, the only fault was lack of hot water which meant boiling kettles to wash up. A dishwasher would be beneficial to the property. The reception from the owners was very welcoming and the flowers were a lovely thought. The views were amazing especially the sunsets, it was a lovely place just to relax and unwind. Rob & Glyn Cole

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for bringing the hot water comment to our attention. We have checked with the property owners, and the hot water for the sinks is provided by a small electric heater, so would just need to be given a little while to heat up once you have used what is in the tank. It would usually be plenty enough to fill up the sink, but then needs a little time to reheat if you require another sink full, and will not affect hot water for the shower. We will monitor any further feedback, and if this is something that needs to be made a little clearer within the property, we will get a note added, so as to avoid any concern. Thank you for highlighting this, and glad that you enjoyed it so much there. Tanya, Customer Services
