  • "The Annexe is a great addition to Kittiwake."

    The main bedroom in particular has great views of the beach and out to sea and is large and comfortable - but it's all good - giving 9 beds in total between the two properties. Note for Sykes/Brays/owners: We found the door into Kittiwake from the hallway a little problematic - particularly as it was a wet week and so going outside and back in through the Kittiwake door wasn't ideal. We really wanted to use the middle door often - but given the bolt on the inside was the only way to shut it fully, this was tricky. Some thoughts: As with the door at the top of the stairs, could a strong door-closer be put on the lower door? Also, could a Yale-style lock be put on the door, with a key on the Annexe key-ring - so that Annexe folk can get in and out of Kittiwake securely? The two properties together make such a good combination - it would be great if they could connect a little more easily for guests. This increased flexibility and security would allay fears when strangers are in Sandpiper (as with our stay this time), while allowing easy access up and down stairs.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by these issues. We have been working closely with the owners of the Gullsways to improve and renovate them as much as we can. Your comments have been passed on to the team here at John Bray Cornish Holidays and to the owner to help with this. 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.

  • "I booked this for other members of our family to stay in while we were staying in Gullsway:Kittiwake down below."

    The Annexe seemed to us to be brighter and more spacious than in the pictures. Remember that it is a traditional Cornish holiday house, at a very fair price for the location - so, not perfect and modern, but perfectly acceptable for an enjoyable week's holiday, and with original features. Heaters and double-glazing made it very cosy even in February. Views are great, as noted in other reviews. The Annexe and Kittiwake aren't directly connected - you really need to go outside and back in again via another door (although you can go through one of the Kittiwake bedrooms at a pinch, but that's a bit awkward). But Kittiwake is big enough to take everyone for meals, lounging about, etc., if needed - or you can split up between the different spaces. So... quirky. Some points noted by my family for the owners/Sykes: - single mattresses very comfortable, double mattress not so much - new loo brush please - the key box for The Annexe is labelled Kestrel - an old name assumably - but it is a little confusing if one arrives late at night! - the code for the key box wasn't included in the email sent to us - I assumed there wasn't one until I got there and we couldn't get in! These are small things. Given the price and location, this was an excellent addition to Kittiwake.

    Thank you for your feedback. we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Annex. We will pass on your comments to the owner regarding a new loo brush and the name on the keybox. We look forward to welcoming you to Gullsway again soon. Many Thanks John Bray Cornish Holidays on behalf of the owner Property Owner

  • "Becoming not suitable for purpose."

    The only thing that makes it bearable is the view from kittiwake which is hired alongside the annexe

    Many thanks for taking the time to feedback The Annexe. We now have a quality accessor team looking at all properties to pick up such things as what is in your comments. We are hoping by next year all properties will have a bit of a pick me up. John Bray on behalf of the owners. Property Owner

The property

Gullsway: The Annexe rests on the first floor of the main house, offering superb views over Polzeath Beach and the bay.

Sleeping up to five guests, this charming retreat is perfect for families looking to experience the beauty of North-West Cornwall.

After a day of meandering coastal paths and exploring local villages, look forward to unwinding in the open-plan living space, resting upon the table and chairs as you plan where to visit next.

Wash away the day with a quick shower or enjoy a deep soak within the bathroom, before finding the bedrooms to catch some rest; there’s a double and a triple with three single beds to choose from.

Shared with the other apartments, the garden is a lovely spot to decompress as you take in those picturesque vistas that will be so hard to forget.

With access to plenty of coastal delights, this is a lovely annexe for family gatherings or catch-ups with friends.

Note: The Annexe is the first-floor accommodation of the main house and can only be rented alongside a booking of Kittiwake (1080270) or September tide (1080273)- it is not available for independent rental.

Gullsway: The Annexe (1080272) does not have kitchen facilities and therefore cannot be booked alone.


Gullsway at Highcliffe, Polzeath provides flexible holiday accommodation in an elevated, clifftop position with phenomenal views overlooking the Atlantic ocean, within easy walking distance of the shops and Polzeath beach via the coastal path. Accessed via an unmade road, the properties provide extremely versatile accommodation and include a detached bungalow (September Tide 1080273) and a large house divided in to 3 apartments – Kittiwake - 1080270, Sandpiper – 1080271 and The Annexe – 1080272 (sits above Sandpiper and Kittiwake but can only be let as additional beds with Kittiwake). The properties are convenient for single or multi-family occupation. Perfect for a picnic or a game of football, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a gate to the cliff path and is for the use of all tenants as is the parking area to the rear. Offering convenience, there is a communal laundry with an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. Idyllic for a gathering of family members who love a seaside holiday, Polzeath offers so many different things to do, from golf and tennis, hiking the coastal path, to swimming and surfing on a life-guarded beach. Polzeath has a buzzing, upbeat holiday atmosphere with surf schools ready to teach any ability. Visit the marine conservation centre for guided rock-pool rambles and wildlife talks. Listen to the local silver band that plays at the top of the beach on a Tuesday evening during the summer months. Head around to the sheltered beach at Daymer with children, who adore paddling in the clear waters. Further around the coast lies Rock with sailing, waterskiing and wakeboarding on offer. From here you can also catch the ferry across to Padstow Harbour across the Camel estuary - a beautiful way to travel! Three inviting apartments ideal for groups of family and friends seeking a relaxing getaway.

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.
