Property Location

Goonhavern has a well-stocked Londis shop, The New Inn pub, which serves quality fresh food and great local beer, The Bay Tree Restaurant is privately owned and situated as part of the Goonhavern garden centre. Goonhavern is just a couple of miles from Perranporth village which entices sunbathers, surfers and families with its three-mile-long sandy beach, where you and your family can have lunch in the Watering Hole pub situated in a prime position directly on the beach. The bustling and lively town of Newquay is a short drive away where you can experience the cool vibe of the surfing Mecca and perhaps even give it a go yourself. In the other direction, also a short drive is the trendy village of St Agnes.

St Agnes is a popular and picturesque, north coast village just 9 miles from Truro and 5 miles from Redruth, the village itself was originally based around the mining of tin, copper and arsenic which started in prehistoric times and continued until the 20th century, other local industries are farming and fishing but more recently tourism has risen to the fore. There have been several attempts to build a harbour in St Agnes, the most recent succumbed to a storm in 1915-16, however, the glorious sandy beaches more than compensate. The village offers many restaurants, pubs, cafes and takeaways (Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Fish & Chips etc) There are also plenty of small galleries as well as a free museum on the outskirts. The village also has a supermarket, butchers, post office, bakers, chemist, fruit and veg, florist as well as some excellent gift shops. It is also a walkers heaven being perfectly situated for exploring the coastal paths, the captivating history and the beautiful nearby beaches of Trevaunance Cove and Trevellas Porth at St Agnes and Chapel Porth. St Agnes Beacon is a 328-foot climb, and on a fine day, you can see from coast to coast. The view is spectacular and well worth the climb.

Holywell Bay is one of the finest beaches in Cornwall. Just 6 miles from Newquay and Perranporth on the north Cornish coast. Holywell Bay is an ideal spot to tour from as it is very central for all parts of Cornwall. There are two inns. There is also an 18 hole golf course, fishing and horse riding very close-by and local shops in the nearby village of Cubert. The secluded National Trust beach at Holywell combines golden soft sands and safe bathing with dynamic caves and cliff walks. With RNLI surf patrols, it is one of the safest surfing beaches on the North Cornwall Coast. There are many caves and rock pools to explore with a large expanse of sand dunes, providing shelter and privacy. Fishing from the beach is good and the excellent cliff walks provide breathtaking views. Holywell Bay derived its name from a spring-fed well, said to have curative properties. It was custom in the older days that parents brought their sick children and dipped them in the well. Above the well is a small cave where the children were lowered from. The well is to be found at the north end of the beach in a large cave, reached only at low tide.

These days Newquay's excellent surfing waters are the town's main industry, whereas it was originally a major export port for the counties mining efforts, as well as a north coast port for pilchard fisheries. Fistral Beach, where Rick Stein's seafood restaurant is located, holds many surfing competitions throughout the year. Both the Women's and Men's Gig Championships are held here, as a balloon festival and surf and lifesaving events. Newquay Zoo now houses 130 different species in sub-tropical gardens in the centre of the town. There is also Newquay Golf Course which backs on to Fistral Beach, a cinema, Waterworld Leisure Centre, Blue Reef Aquarium and a Sainsburys all within walking distance. There is a Morrison's Supermarket on the outskirts of town.

Watergate Bay and The Extreme Academy offers you a 'ski resort on a beach' and a plethora of activities to keep even the most active occupied. The Lappa Valley Steam Railway just outside Newquay offers both the old and young an interesting day out. Newquay Airport has made the north coast one of the easiest places in Cornwall to get to, with regular flights from various locations across the UK. The town also has an Aquarium, a Waterworld and numerous immensely pretty beaches for the less active. Trerice run by the National Trust is 3 miles outside of the town is an Elizabethan Manor House and Garden with restricted winter opening times.
