The seaside resort of Polzeath lies on a spectacular stretch of the North Cornwall coast, near the town of Wadebridge. On the doorstep of holiday cottages in Polzeath, the vast sandy beach is a paradise for sunbathing, building sandcastles, and swimming. It is also one of Cornwall’s best surf spots, with perfect conditions for all levels. The renowned South West Coast Path runs through Polzeath, heading west towards the sandy shore of Daymer Bay, where you can take a ferry across the estuary to the port of Padstow, and east, to the rocky cove of Port Quin, and the pretty fishing village of Port Isaac. A walk around the craggy headlands known as The Rumps is essential on self-catering holidays in Polzeath, with breathtaking views along the coast. On the clifftops overlooking the beach, and on the main road that runs through the village, you will find a grocery, a couple of surf shops, and a handful of cafes. On the cliff at New Polzeath, there is a bar where you can watch the waves from the terrace. On the other side of the bay, the Oystercatcher is a popular pub with a reputation for good food.
