Polzeath is a Cornish seaside village overlooking Padstow Bay in North Cornwall. The heavy Atlantic rollers and the large expanse of golden sands stretching out to meet the sea make it a hub of activity whether for busily crafting sand castle villages or catching a wave. Dolphins and puffins are common visitors to Polzeath as are the Royals who have been known to catch a wave here.

The little town has a wonderful seaside atmosphere and the cafés, restaurants and take aways offer a tasty selection of seaside treats which you can enjoy al fresco or back at one of our holiday cottages.
