I have so many warm memories of Bolingey and Perranporth. My aunt owned & lived at 1 Crow Hill for MANY years, and my mother and grandfather for some years prior. I visited there yearly from babyhood through my teens. Last time I visited was 1988, and the 4 cottages were still there. A few years ago No.2 (I think) was sold for about 250 pounds; they'd added a bathroom - which none of the original cottages had.
I lived in Bolingey as a child, until 1959, and this picture has strong memories for me. My family had a cottage somewhere to the front and right of the chapel on the hill. The location was called "Crow Hill" and I think the cottages may still be there today. For some reason I was afraid of the large forbidding Methodist chapel! Years later I used to visit the Bolingey Inn and I'm glad to see that it is still there now. Haven't been there for 30 years though.
