  • “Driftwood was perfect for myself, my daughter and her friend.”


    It was also lovely that it had a garden with table and chairs and a washing line to dry all your wet beach stuff. The location is stunning (literally 100m from the beach) and it's a huge bonus to have parking for 2 cars which made it easy when my friends (who were also holidaying locally) wanted to come to meet us at the beach! It felt like a proper old fashioned English seaside home. (no need to publish following comments....) The only thing that I feel the need to mention negatively is that the carpet in the middle bedroom is filthy. There are several dirty stains just as you walk into the bedroom and under the foot on the right hand side of the bed nearest the door. They are just stains from age and use but it really stuck out to me as being dirty and needs replacing. It's a shame because the rest of the house was clean and light and airy. The other carpets appeared to be newer and the rug in the lounge was beautifully clean and fresh which made the carpet in the middle bedroom look even worse.

The property

This delightful cottage is situated in the centre of the village of Polzeath, Cornwall.

Just a safe, short, level walk away from Polzeath Beach, this lovely cottage is located close to all the facilities of this world-renowned surfing village opposite Padstow, and ideal for families and friends.

Entering into this cosy cottage the relaxed feel will be felt throughout, with all accommodation being on the ground floor.

The sitting room has massive comfy sofas and wooden floors, leading through into the kitchen and dining area.

There are three bedrooms designed to suit all, two double rooms and a children’s bunk bedroom which also has an additional single bed making it an ideal room for the children.

At the rear of the property is a delightful garden, ideal to relax in after a day on the beach before setting out to one of the pubs, restaurants or cafes all within a very short walk.

Polzeath is a haven for surfers, bodyboarders and beach lovers.

There is a nature reserve and interesting rock pools which will fascinate all ages, whilst dolphins may sometimes be spotted.

This comfortable cottage is set amongst the homes of the many celebrities who choose to holiday in this very special area of Cornwall.

You will immediately feel relaxed, wanting to stroll down to the beach where long lazy days will be enjoyed by all.

For walkers being so close to the coastal path is perfect, with delightful walks in both directions, one to Daymer Bay with its fine bathing beach and the leading resort of Rock, and the other is an easterly walk taking you along stunning coastline to Pentire Point.

The path between Polzeath and St Enodoc is suitable for young families, enabling all to appreciate the beautiful estuary scenery.

For total relaxation, lounging on the beach celebrity spotting is a most popular choice amongst many.

If you are able or wish to take yourself away from the beach and the coast, you are ideally located to visit the many hot spots in the area.

A great place to stay whatever time of year.

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.
