Once a coastguard station, YHA Perranporth is perched on a cliff-top location on the rugged North Cornish Coast. Expect spectacular views of the untamed Atlantic Ocean and three miles of lifeguarded sandy beaches.
The hostel features a self-catering kitchen, common area, laundry facilities and a garden with barbecue where you can relax after an action-packed day. Bed linen is included in the price.
This area is a real surfer's paradise. Walkers will want to follow the South West Coast Path, while nature lovers should look out for seals and dolphins in the St Agnes Marine Conservation Area. There’s also mountain biking, power-kiting, coasteering and horse riding for action-seekers on an activity break.
What travellers think
Lovely views, but a bit cramped inside the rooms. I suggest taking a few beds out. Too much snoring unfortunately for a comfortable night's sleep. Hostels should be for young guys who don't snore as much.
