  • "Hi, good time had by all."

    ..This was our 2nd time here, enjoy the location and house all good. My only thoughts to improve the lookout is to maybe rejig the bathrooms , position of loo and basin in downstairs. Upstairs a slimmer basin. Shower /bath room downstairs would also benefit from combi tap/shower attachment, as plastic one split as soon as put it on. The parking, I learned on last day, that there is space that can be used but this isn't mentioned in description of property? Many thanks , would stop again

    Thank you for sharing feedback of The Lookout. We are delighted that you had an enjoyable holiday. Your comments will be shared with the owner and we will review the description in regards to parking. We would love to welcome you back anytime in the future - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic property in New Polzeath with incredible, stunning views."

    A pick of the bunch for our family of four + dog out of many we have stayed in over the years - would certainly return. We even tried to extend this stay by one night, but got told by Sykes not possible. (It was a shame that the dishwasher was faulty for majority of stay, even though replaced with a new one on our last day.)

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back anytime in the future! Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

    We had a two week stay at the lookout amazing location, furnished very tasteful, unfortunately some areas need attention cleaning on arrival was not wonderful had to do a bit of cleaning myself on arrival We had a amazing stay and very much loved it we found the house keeper very helpful with new laundry mid stay all amenities made our stay easy and we would definitely consider returning

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Lookout. We are sorry that the standards of cleaning were not as expected and will pass this back to the cleaning company. We do hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back to Cornwall in the future.

  • "Very well appointed and appreciated the recarpeting and redecoration since the previous owner."

    Location is ace. Please could the owners do something about the ventilation in the bathroom? The windows do not open and the extractor fan didn’t seem to make much difference leading to a damp smelling bathroom for most of the week. A second key would be helpful so that the house can be locked if some of the occupants are asleep but someone else wants to go out? You can’t lock the door as it’s not possible to unlock from inside without a key so it’s not safe to lock it (but also doesn’t feel that safe leaving the door unlocked whilst people are asleep!)

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays, we will take regarding the poor ventilation issue in the bathroom, each property should have a spare key inside as well as in the key safe outside so will look at this urgently. We hope 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.

    Good property, good location. Parking was less of issue than first thought. Shops and restaurants all within walking distance, two beaches to choose from and nice walk to pentire point if your able.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to share such wonderful feedback with us.

  • "Wif-Fi and vacuum cleaner didn't work."

    Most of the windows wouldn't open and the fridge had to be set very low to avoid ice build up and food freezing. Great location and lovely view from kitchen and living room. No dedicated parking so best to avoid during peak season.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I am sorry you had these difficulties whilst in the property. The owner has since replaced the fridge freezer to avoid this in the future. I am sorry the vacuum cleaner didn’t work, the handheld Dyson often needs it’s filter to be cleaned regularly, particularly due to the new carpets but there is another a Henry hoover downstairs in case as a spare. In terms of the wifi – the guests in at the weekend had no issues so we are sorry you struggled with it. A lot of the window mechanisms and locks have been replaced recently so may be taking some time to become workable. In terms of parking there is a reasonable car park 5 minutes, walk away which can be used as well should you struggle to walk. Thank you once again for taking the time to share this feedback it is extremely helpful, and we are glad that you enjoyed the view and the position of the property. We look forward to welcoming you back to Polzeath in the future. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Property was very comfortable and very well furnished and in the ideal location for beach and walks."

    The only small niggle being that we weren’t able to open windows most being sealed shut. Overall we had a fabulous stay and would definitely rent again.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave you feedback. Its great to hear you had a lovely stay here. I have spoken to the maintenance team they have assured me the windows are not sealed shut but locked. We hope to invite you back to North Cornwall again soon. John Bray on behalf of the owner.

Boasting stunning sea views, tasteful-décor throughout and close proximity to the beach, The Lookout welcomes six guests to relish a relaxing getaway in Cornwall.

Enter the property on the ground-floor which homes a handy utility with washing machine, as well as a sleek bathroom, perfect for washing away the sand from your clothes on return from a day at the beach.

About the location

POLZEATH

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.
