  • "A perfect little property for a family stay in Polzeath."

    The bungalow was a little dated and worn and would have benefited from slight upgrade in decor. The kickboards in kitchen were loose and falling off which made it look a bit shabby and the kitchen bin had no lid so meant smells were more likely. There were also lots of spiders hiding in corners which the cleaners could remove. Also, the front door felt flimsy and easy to open. However, the lovely bathroom and shower and the crisp white and comfortable bedding made up for any of the shortfalls.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and the bathroom and bedding helped make it a more pleasant experience. Thank you for highlighting the cleanliness and maintenance issues, we will raise this with the cleaning company. John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

  • "Had a good holiday at Northern Lights."

    There were six people in our group, my wife and myself, our two children and their spouses and our grandchild of one year old. We found the accommodation rather small, especially the two bedrooms with single beds. The mattress under the window in one bedroom had seen better days. The bathroom was lovely, an additional loo would be beneficial. We found the outside shower was either too hot, or cold, could not get the correct temperature on it. Facilities were good, as was the location.

    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 and to the owner. 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.

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage."

    We loved the eclectic restored items and the real feel of a family holiday home. It was Immaculately clean and lovely and warm (March). We know the street well and it is perfectly located. I took my 3 surfer teenagers, including twins for their 16th birthday weekend (4 of us). The only thing I’d change is that with 3 bedrooms, potentially 6 people, you really need a second bathroom or at least a second loo. The laundry room at the back of the house might offer potential for this.

    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. - John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of the coastal village Polzeath in Cornwall, is this delightful three-bedroom detached house, Northern Lights.

Enjoying an all-ground layout, a private balcony and easy access via a footpath opposite the house to Polzeath’s glorious beach, Northern Lights makes for a fantastic coastal getaway for a family of six or group of friends.

Park up in the off-road parking space on the private driveway, with an additional space available on-street, before unloading your bags and stepping into your new holiday home.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to soaking up the last of the days of the sunshine out on the balcony.

Retreating to the plush sofas in the sitting room once it cools and snuggle up in front of your favourite film on the Smart TV, basking in the glow and warmth of the woodburning stove.

Whip up mouth-watering meals in the well-equipped kitchen, with electric oven and hob, electric Rayburn and dishwasher for keeping your space tidy, before gathering around the dining table for six to tuck-in.

On warmer days, why not make dinner an alfresco occasion and sit out on the rear patio, where you can fire up the charcoal barbecue and treat your guests to grilled delights!

Indulge in a soothing soak in the bath with your favourite book, as your towel warms on the heated towel rail nearby.

Pop on fresh pyjamas and retire to one of three tastefully decorated bedrooms, a double, and two twins, each with plenty of storage for your belongings.

There is nothing like the feeling of a hot outside shower when returning from your surfing adventures and you can also take advantage of the handy external utility room, which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for popping sandy clothes on a spin after a day at the beach!

Set out for the day and be sure to make a stop at the nearby Oystercatcher pub for a tasty bite to eat, here you can expect fresh seafood and a relaxed dining experience with the option of alfresco, perfect for those evenings when you’d rather skip the kitchen.

Via the convenient footpath to the centre of the village of Polzeath you will find a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants for stocking up your fridge or perfect indulging with a stone baked pizza on the beach.

Wander over to the beach where you can bathe on the glorious sands, paddle the clear waters or try your hand at the local’s favourite watersport, surfing, with nearby shops offering all the equipment you will need to ensure you are kitted out.

Walkers will delight at the scenic Pentire Point nearby, a National Trust site which offers rugged cliffside views and wildlife spotting of seals and peregrine falcons!

From here, if an energetic hiker you can make your way to Port Quin, where you will find the charming Doyden Castle, a homely 19th-century property with expansive sea views.

Be sure to make time for a visit to Padstow by taking the foot ferry across from Rock, home to the National Lobster Hatchery with the option to adopt your own hatchling, along with a picturesque harbour and the well-known Camel Trail, a cyclist's haven.

Head inland to explore the National Trust property Landhyrock, Cardinham Woods and Bodmin Moor which are fantastic for family days out or couples to discover together.

For a getaway to the cost like no other, choose Northern Lights.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
