  • "We have been visiting Polzeath for over 40 years and stayed in an array of JB properties."

    Ossco is an absolute gem, we've had the most amazing time; swimming in Lusty, walks to Port Isaac and Pentire and endless games of rounders in the most fabulous garden. Ossco feels very much like a home rather than a holiday let which we loved. We took our 1 year old Newfoundland who had the most amazing time chasing seagulls, swimming in Daymer and enjoying an occasional ice cream in Padstow...can't wait to return ❤️

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Ossco and you were able to make the most of the beautiful location with swimming, walks and more. We're so glad your lovely Newfoundland enjoyed themselves just as much and we look forward to welcoming you all back hopefully soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "For us everything was perfect."

    We loved all the wood and stone used throughout the house and found it very cozy. Our only issue would be with the beds. I think everyone found the mattresses to be a little lumpy.

    Thank you for your kind comments. Sorry you found the beds lumpy. We hope we can welcome you back very soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

  • "We had an amazing time."

    The property and location is stunning. The property is warm and seating very comfortable. The water was hot and facilities were satisfactory. There was plenty to entertain the children. The walks were wonderful and the outside area although not secure for dogs was a great space. However there is an odd smell in downstairs bathroom. Some of the light switches pop off. Instructions for use of Aga and log burner would have been helpful as the WiFi is a bit dodgy and only works in living area. Single beds were uncomfortable for adults as mattresses were a little worn out. That said we would book this again in a heartbeat.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on Ossco. Its great to hear all your family had a wonderful stay and enjoyed al the property had to offer. We are sorry you had to experience these issues during your stay. We will look to put information like what you mentioned into the property promptly. We hope to invite you back to North Cornwall again soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Finally got to stay at Ossco!"

    Great house, very comfortable and fabulous views of course. Thank you for the welcome treat. We did not feel that as mentioned in previous reviews that it was dated, just a lovely warm family home. Thank you for sharing it.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It's great to hear that you had such a fabulous stay at Ossco and had the perfect base to explore the north Cornish coastline from! We really cant wait to invite you back to North Cornwall again soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Ossco is a beautiful cottage in a stunning location."

    Well thought out as for what you would require on holiday. Maybe could be updated slightly as decking area is moving slightly with joists starting to fail , but did not detract from our great holiday. A welcome book maybe a positive for guests with information for internet and things to do in the area but the welcome bag of tea and coffee etc was much appreciated. Will definitely be returning if possible. Thankyou.

    Thank you for your feedback on Ossco. We have let the owner know about the decking and have informed Maintenance of this issue and will have it rectified. We hope to invite you back to North Cornwall soon. John Bray Cornish Holidays. Property Owner

  • "Property has the best view and is so calming the area is fantastic."

    The property needs some furnishing updating beds uncomfortable and hard, single mattress on bunk beds need attention. We got locked out of the utility door as the lock had failed but John bray attended and let us in within 40 minutes had an issue with ants crawling over the table and worktops, but on the 5th day of the holiday a team arrived to dig a trench and lay new pipes in the garden as they had an issue with a smell so where fitting a vent which we where not told about so couldn’t use outside the whole day. The smell down stairs at night time was really over powering more so I’m the bathroom and utility room of drains we had to run the water several times to try and move the smell. We moved the bin in the utility on night 5 and found a mouse box with poison in which we where shocked at the thought they had an issue with mice and we where sleeping down there on that floor they also had one outside the bedroom door we where sleeping at which is on the same floor so the last 3 nights my partner didn’t sleep well at this thought. It’s a shame as this could be an amazing holiday but for us it was spoilt and we wouldn’t be coming back again unless the issues where sorted the layout and views are perfect.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, this helps us improve our service for future guests. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the views and location of Ossco. I pass your feedback onto the owners of the property in regards to the beds, any upgrades are at their discretion. Now that they have laid new pipes the smell has gone, I am really sorry you had not been made aware of these works. We will ensure the issue with the mouse box’s have been removed I am so sorry they were in place during your stay. We do hope you will stay at Ossco again so you can see that we have rectified all issues you have raised. Property Owner

  • "This is the second time we have stayed at Ossco."

    It's a very comfortable house, well laid out and always warm. The kitchen is very well equipped and it's always a treat to have an Aga. The large garden with views to the sea beyond gives it an expansive feel, and makes it ideal for children and dogs. Our only comment is that 8 years on from our last visit, the house has not been updated. The decor feels rather dated now, particularly the sitting room and bedroom furniture, and although this does not affect its comfort, it does put it out of step with other properties in which we have stayed recently. All that said, we had a lovely week and it's the perfect base from which to make the most of the area.

  • "The house is lovely overall and a great location with a beautiful view."

    The decor is nice and the main rooms are really nice for a family holiday. We would definitely stay again but would appreciate a few small issues being addressed before next year.......... The Aga makes the kitchen too hot and needs to be switched off in summer, we had to keep the doors open whenever we were there. All that heat is not ideal for leaving a dog at home for some of the day either. Most of the bedrooms need better curtains and blinds to darken the rooms, ideally all in blackout material The keys needs sorting and labelling, it took a while to find what we needed in the box of keys and junk. The bathrooms need a good check over to fix the almost non-functioning toilet flushes etc. (I called and for it to be fixed but no one ever came and did it). It would help to have an instruction card on arrival e.g. bin collection (that guests don't need to put any bins out). For the price we expected a small welcome basket - some tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits and a pint of milk in the fridge to keep us going until the shopping delivery arrived!

  • "We enjoyed our return visit to Ossco - its privacy, views and location really are its best points."

    It could now do with some investment in bettering its mattresses and furnishings however as all were rather worn and uncomfortable. Still love that view though - it is a winner!

Ossco is an attractive and contemporary self-catering coastal property, enjoying outstanding sea views from Polzeath, Cornwall.

From its striking interior design to its commanding clifftop setting, Ossco is the perfect family home in North Cornwall that welcomes your dogs as well.

Effortlessly stylish, the house sleeps ten guests, making it ideal for large groups and family celebrations.

The spacious open-plan living areas have plate glass windows, allowing you to invite the incredible ocean views indoors.

Architecturally crafted, this is high-standard accommodation complete with underfloor heating, a woodburning stove, state-of-the-art kitchen with both an oil-fired AGA and separate electric oven/hob, and multiple dishwashers, whilst outside there is a Coach House annexe.

Ossco is gated from the road with parking for several cars, whilst to the front and side of the house are large stone terraces with teak patio furniture, leading on to huge lawns affording truly breath-taking views of the rugged Atlantic Ocean.

The surrounding National Trust coastline is accessible via the nearby public footpath leading down to Lundy Bay, a sheltered cove with sandy beaches at low tide.

Polzeath beach is only a short drive away and a favourite spot for surfers of all ability, with beach side cafes and restaurants as well as shops and galleries.

About the location


Wadebridge 7.5 miles; Padstow 16 miles.

The seaside village of Polzeath boasts a sandy beach, which is bordered by rock pools and is acclaimed to be one of the best surfing beaches in the country. Polzeath itself has a number of small shops, cafes and restaurants, and the South West Coast Path, a 630-mile route, runs through the village. Just over seven miles away is the popular market town of Wadebridge, which is set alongside the River Camel and offers an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as North Cornwall's only family-owned cinema. There’s wonderful countryside in the area, with the renowned Camel Trail passing through the town, and the nearby town of Padstow, with its harbour, pastel-washed medieval houses and celebrated restaurants is well worth exploring. Within driving distance is the UK surfing capital of Newquay, with over 11 miles of golden sandy beaches. Polzeath is an excellent base for exploring this part of Cornwall.
