Set about half­way down Corn­wall’s long North­ern coast, be­tween Newquay and St Agnes, Per­ran­porth is a medium-sized re­sort town. Nat­u­rally it is very much geared around beach life, with plenty of places to en­joy a fam­ily meal or a drink with friends.

For a greater range of ameni­ties and for work op­por­tu­ni­ties, Corn­wall’s cap­i­tal city of Truro is less than ten miles away, with ev­ery­thing you’d need from high street and in­de­pen­dent shops, the county’s main hospi­tal and county coun­cil, the cathe­dral, cin­ema and the­atres. This prox­im­ity means there is a vi­brant year-round mix of lo­cals and vis­i­tors.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions: Per­ran­porth is only about five miles off the A30 trunk road. Reg­u­lar bus ser­vices con­nect the neigh­bour­ing towns and vil­lages. Truro is the near­est main line train sta­tion on the London-Pen­zance line. Shop­ping: For food, Per­ran­porth has a small but well-stocked Co-op; or you can buy lo­cal at the Per­ran­porth Coun­try Mar­ket. Nat­u­rally there’s a great range of surf shops, and also hair­dressers and pet shops, gift shops and thrift shops. Schools: Per­ran­porth has its own com­mu­nity pri­mary school, with other op­tions at Mithian and Goon­hav­ern. Newquay and Truro have the near­est se­condary schools; Truro also has a range of in­de­pen­dent op­tions across all ages, as well as a pop­u­lar col­lege.

Pubs and restau­rants: Great food choices in this fun town, es­pe­cially in summer. The Wa­ter­ing Hole boasts to be the UK’s only bar on the beach, host­ing live acts which you can en­joy the sand be­tween your toes.

You can get au­then­tic pizza at the Cor­nish Pizza Com­pany, pub grub and a quaff at the Ty­warn­hayle Inn or Drift­wood Spars, which serves a se­lec­tion of “proper” Cor­nish ales and barista-style cof­fee.
