I absolutely love Perranporth, and would move there in a heartbeat if I could. Sadly I don’t think that move is on the cards anytime soon so I have to make do with staying in other peoples places if I fancy a visit. This was the case recently when I decided Perranporth would be the place I wanted to see the new year in.
After a pretty horrendous drive down from Worcester we arrived later than planned. We were met in the accommodation car park by our host, Alan. We’d already dropped him a couple of texts on the way down so he knew we would be late, and he was totally fine with that. He offered to help us with our luggage and off we trotted to our room.
No word of a lie, our flat is smaller than the room we were shown to. Having climbed a million stairs to get to the top floor we entered through the door into our hallway, which itself was probably wider than our lounge at home! The layout was straight forward, left was the open plan living room complete with flat screen TV, coffee table, fridge, couch, arm-chair and sliding patio door to the balcony with sea view. Straight ahead of us was the bathroom with his and hers sinks, freestanding bath, toilet and a shower enclosure that had its own mood-lighting and sound system built in! Sadly the additional water jets and waterfall showerhead didn’t work, but the normal showerhead was enough. Next to the bathroom was the guest bedroom complete with 2 single beds, and to the right was the main open plan double bedroom with kingsize bed. This place is HUGE.
It was pretty quiet too, if I wasn’t nosing off the balcony I wouldn’t really have known any new guests had arrived. Alan had warned us that due to a delayed flight someone may be arriving in the small hours and that we may hear the doors closing, but we assured him that wasn’t an issue to us. Not long after Alan had left us to it and we had unpacked we trotted off down to the local Wetherspoons for some cheap grub. Hungry work is driving don’t you know.
No sooner had my eyes peeled open, I was skimming my way across the laminate floor to check out the view from the balcony in the day light. It was dark when we arrived. Epic! I bloody love the sea and with the exception of being on a boat, I don’t think you could wake up any closer to it. I was stood there in my PJ’s watching surfers do their thing in the swell.
With a good nights sleep and a wistful gawp at the view under our belt, we got ready and went down to breakfast. Another spotlessly clean room with a view to boot. Alan was there waiting and in no time at all I was staring at a full English breakfast with toast, juice and coffee. The food was great, not fried, but baked where possible to make it slightly less heart attacky. In the summer this must be an awesome place to eat if the weather permits al-freso dining on the decking. With full bellies and some good chatter with Alan, we popped back up to the room to grab our wellies, and we went for a wander along the beach.
New Years Eve…
We planned to head to the Watering Hole to party our way into 2017, but we pondered the pricey £26 each for a ticket for too long and they sold out. Instead we enjoyed our walk along the beach and topped that off with a big fat hot chocolate before grabbing some fish and chips and eating them in the dark by the sea. We decided against going anywhere for drinks and opted to drink our own back at the room, play some board games and watch the fireworks on TV. I figured we would have an awesome view of the Fireworks at the Watering Hole but they didn’t have any! Boooo.
So that was our stay at Cellar Cove B&B. I would highly recommend this place to everyone, everything about it is great. Find some more pics below if you fancy a browse.
