  • "Overall a lovely stay, a few things could be done to improve future guests stays."

    No garden furniture whatsoever, meant we couldn’t use the garden like we’d want to for sitting out to dinner etc Only one set of front door keys, 2 sets would make life easier when the group splits up Back door can’t be locked from the inside Windows could be cleaned on the outside on changeover day so the spectacular view can be fully appreciated on arrival - they were really dirty and so my husband went round and cleaned them Beds are so creaky it’s impossible to turn over without waking yourself and others up in the room The view is second to none on this property and I don’t think you’ll find better at this price anywhere in Polzeath. It is basic but it does have all you need - well equipped kitchen and lounge furniture is comfier than it looks in the photos! Clean and tidy on arrival. There is a sign on the garden wall about parking fines for non residents - John Bray weren’t particularly helpful in knowing if a holiday tenant counts as a resident. We parked on the road and put a piece of paper in our cars explaining who we were. We didn’t get a fine (luck?) but it would be useful for John Bray to do some homework on this and include it in the listing for future guests especially as it’s advertised as having “ample” parking. The garage can be used if you have a small car, the driveway can be used for anything smaller than an xc60 (Volvo) but is on a very steep incline which is why we chose to park on the road. Overall we would stay at this property again (4 adults & 2 kids)

Thank you for your suggestions for improvements, all feedback in shared with the owner. We are sorry to hear that you experienced some issues, your comments will be raised to our maintenance team - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay and the house is light and airy."

    We felt the furnishings are a bit tired and dated. The kitchen is well equipped and newer. The location is great with an amazing view of the beach. It is very convenient for the beach and the shops. More could be made of the garden and there was no table to use outside. The drive is very steep and not really suitable to use. There was blood on some of the cushions on the sofa.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. We are glad that you still managed to enjoy your visit despite these issues and would love to welcome you back to North Cornwall in the future. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner.

    Alittle dated Decking area definitely a plus , we booked Zapadiah in 2010 and apart from kitchen and lounge furniture no other improvements

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay. The photos do justify the property and it lies in a stunning location, right on Polzeath beach! We do hope you had a lovely stay. Property Owner

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.
