The seaward view is timeless, sunsets framed by Stepper Point and Pentire Head memorable.  The area is the most fashionable of Britain's resorts; the coastline, well protected by the National Trust, is of outstanding beauty.  St Enodoc and Roserrow golf courses and a number of notable restaurants including Rick Stein's, Paul Ainsworth's and Nathan Outlaw's are close at hand, while Rock and Padstow provide all sorts of water activities.

"Sleeping like you've never slept before. Listening to the waves whilst waking up in the early morning. Catching a wave when the tide's high and surfing into the shops!"

Our family has owned Polzeath House since 1946 and has spent many happy days there.
