Local Area


A little bit about the area:

Holywell Bay has a beautiful beach backed by golden sand dunes which form a wide open bay large enough for everyone to enjoy whatever comes naturally.
Go body boarding or surfing in the water, storm watch in the winter or stroll across the sand dunes with the dog and enjoy breathtaking views of mother nature.
Holywell is also an ideal place to just sit on the beach and read a good book while the kids play in the stream and naturally formed rock pools or explore the fascinating caves.
Nearby is the Holywell fun park with self-drive rides, pitch and putt and a kids zone.
There is a wide range of holiday accommodation available nearby such as various campsites and caravan parks as well as the St Pirans Inn. Last but not least, why not pick Holywell Bay as your starting point for the stunning coastal path walk either to the town of Perranporth or Newquay with truly fantastic sea views.

We probably should mention that Holywell Bay beach has been used as a filming location for the popular BBC series of Poldark. Its iconic Gull Rocks act as the backdrop to some scenes in series two.

Holywell is owned and looked after by the National Trust.

There is an ATM machine at the Post Office in the nearest village - Cubert.
