Polzeath is North Cornwall’s base for exploring the surrounding area and makes a great choice for short stays. Why? We are so glad you asked… A fast cure for stress – Polzeath’s laid back atmosphere is a hit with many city dwellers who visit us for a change of pace. Polzeath and North Cornwall might be that bit further away from most places in the country, but you won’t find anywhere else that offers the same laid-back ambience, by the coast and in the UK. The Point at Polzeath provides great access to some of the most popular beaches in the county and indeed the country. Surf culture – Polzeath is a surfer’s paradise with a life-guarded beach, so family surf and bodyboarding excursions are on the cards now that the heat has turned up a little. Surfers from Exeter, Bristol and Cardiff have short surfing breaks down to a tee, frequently visiting for the weekend to surf the best waves in the UK. Polzeath is central to many great places…– Polzeath is surrounded by a multitude of different types of scenery and things to do, making it the perfect base for those who want to cover lots of ground during their short stay.

Check out our guide to flowers in Cornwall here. But if you want to stay put around Polzeath during your visit…. – You can still enjoy yourself and you will not be missing out. Polzeath has plenty to offer, from the nearby beaches, water sports and beautiful walks. The Point at Polzeath offer families and couples amazing food, tennis, golf, yoga and spinning with the most scenic of views and much more. You don’t need to leave the UK for a sense of change – You will find that North Cornwall feels worlds apart from anything else the UK has to offer, the county has its own language after all. Summer temperatures embellish the scenery of palm trees and coast, which can sometimes even resemble Greece or Italy. Even during the winter months, the sub-tropical climate means higher-than-average temperatures, so you can swap the city and the inland frost for some mild sea air. Something for everyone – When people think of Cornwall, the buzzword is usually ‘beach’ – but it is so much more than that. North Cornwall is perfectly positioned to discover the best things about the county – the cultural offering attracts many, from the Eden Project to the historic church of St Enodoc. Sabine-Baring-Gould described Cornwall as ‘one of England’s most interesting counties, whether we regard it for its coast scenery, its products or its antiquities’. We most certainly agree with you Sabine. Come and pay us a visit…. Join us for a short break from £300 in 2 and 3 bedroom contemporary apartments boasting amazing views.
