Perranuthnoe Village Amenities

Perranuthnoe lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its secluded, safe, sandy beach and the unspoilt beauty of the rugged Cornish coast, Perranuthnoe is an idyllic, picturesque village with a range of amenities to suit.

The Beach

The beach is clean and the water quality is good making it is safe for swimming. When the conditions are right it is popular with surfers and a great beach for beginners. Access is via a slip way or some steep steps. The launching of personal watercraft is forbidden at all times.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach between 1st July and 31st August from 10am - 6pm. Outside of these months dogs are allowed at anytime. Please be a responsible dog owner and pick up after your dog or the 24 hour ban may be reinforced by the council. Most owners do pick up after their dog however, a small minority do not.

Perranuthnoe Beach


Just back from the beach there is a car park with an overflow field opposite for use during busy times. Charges apply to both. The car park also houses the public toilets which are open all year.

Perranuthnoe is very small and the parking is not adequate for the amount of visitors we get at various times throughout the year. The parish council and Cornwall council are working to resolve this issue. In the meantime please, please park responsibly.

The lane down to Perranuthnoe is the only road in and out of the village and is very narrow. Parking along the lane is dangerous and irresponsible making it very difficult for anyone trying to enter or leave the village not to mention the emergency services getting through as has been the case in the past. Vehicles are often damaged as other cars and the bus try to squeeze through or by having to reverse up or down the lane to make way for traffic coming in the opposite directition. Visitors parking cars at road junctions, on blind bends, even on peoples private drives and parking areas is not acceptable as most would agree. Please make for a happy visit to Perranuthnoe and think before your park.

Telephone And Post

There is a public telephone box opposite the Victoria Inn. Mobiles do not get a very good signal in the village!

The post box is next to the telephone and collection is once a day at 9am

Eat, Drink, Aah..

Perranuthnoe is lucky enough to have three outstranding places to eat and drink.

The Cabin Beach Café

The Cabin is a Perranuthnoe family owned and run establishment. Starting life as a hut many years ago, serving tea, coffee and ice creams with a few childrens buckets, spades and fishing nets outside it has grown to be a stylish wooden cabin and one of the most loved places to visit by both locals and visitors alike.

The Cabin sits right on top of the beach and the coast path offering superb views of the surrounding area. With both indoor and outdoor seating and a very warm, welcoming atmosphere whatever the weather.

A wide range of quality food is always available including homemade dishes, vegetarian and gluten free options.

Cakes and scones are a speciality and all are home-made in the Cabin. Gluten free cake is always available.

Dogs are welcome in the garden.

Open all year round.

The Victoria Inn

The Victoria Inn is reputedly one of the oldest recorded Inns in Cornwall. In the 12th century it was used as a hostelry by the masons who were building the village church and later as a stopover for prisoners being taken to Bodmin jail. Nowadays, full of character and Olde Worlde charm this cosy ancient pub makes a name for itself serving, award winning food, fine wines and ales.

The Vic offers a daily menu which utilises the excellent wealth of local produce available each season within close proximity to the inn.

With a roaring fire in the winter and a south facing, enclosed terraced garden for the warmer months, the Victoria Inn really is for all seasons.

Muddy boots and wet dogs are very welcome.

Open all year round.
