ABOUT US

"Karen, Holly and Liv went out of their way to ensure that our stay was the best it could be."

Welcome To The Family

Living in Cornwall for well over 30 years, Karen and her daughters; Liv and Holly have made Perranporth their home since 2006.  Holly’s daughters; Maya and Ruby are the youngest of this three generation dynasty and have an active part in shaping its future.  

Bucking a growing trend for characterless accommodation, Karen’s vision was to give guests a special experience to rival any of the expensive or established independent hotels. Set in luxurious eclectic surroundings with an emphasis on comfort, sustainability and relaxation, garnished with unpretentious, fabulous food and washed down with the best wines, beers and cocktails. 

Our extended family team of like-minded friends and colleagues help us grow and evolve. Some have been family friends for decades and others have been customers and guests, who just can’t stay away,… and we don’t want them to. 

We find the place runs to its best potential with a small cohesive team who share the dream.  A place for all, somewhere beautiful, somewhere fun, somewhere welcoming and willing to share the love.  Welcome to the family.

About Perranporth & The Atlantic Coast

Being based in Perranporth gives so many opportunities for exploring the best that Cornwall has to offer. Approximately half way down the north coast of the Duchy even the far west tip of Land’s End, the southerly point of The Lizard or Plymouth, the gateway to neighbouring Devon at its south easterly end can all be reached in about an hour from Perranporth.

With its 3 miles of soft golden sands, which inspired Winston Graham’s epic saga of Poldark books and an industrial history at least as dramatic as that story, Perranporth has seen its share of changing fortunes but its dramatic coastline, astonishing sunsets and welcoming residents have created a flourishing place for family holidays and romantic getaways alike.

The Atlantic coast has some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in the world and The South West Coast Path runs right along the dunes and beach of Perranporth. Just 5 minutes from your luxury bath and delicious meal at the end of a hard days’ walking.

"Karen, Holly, Liv and their team were all so friendly - we would definitely go back."

SEPTEMBER 2022 | SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

last call for poldark tours

After eight years sitting at the zenith of Poldark related tourism, we have decided 2023 will be Karen’s final year of touring guests around Cornwall’s outstanding landscapes, tourist attractions and show stopping filming locations.

This also means that any and all visits to Nampara (pictured) will cease after 2023, as it is a location Karen has exclusive access to. So if seeing Nampara and experiencing Karen’s expertise and charm first hand is on your Poldark bucket list, this will likely be the final opportunity to do so.

Places are limited for next year, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch, it would b wonderful to see you all – enquiries@poldarkscornwall.com
