Beach house chic

Holiday luxury on the north coast’s ‘golden triangle’, overlooking the waves of Polzeath.

With views reaching out over the Atlantic Ocean and the golden sands of Polzeath beach – one of Cornwall’s safest sandy playgrounds – Polzeath Beach House is the ultimate year-round holiday destination. In a coveted position overlooking the bay, guests will find all the comfort, luxury and glorious views that epitomise the dream Cornish holiday.

The original building dates back to 1903, positioned on the north coast’s ‘golden triangle’ of Rock, Padstow and Polzeath, and has recently been redeveloped into an absolutely stunning boutique hotel.

So, what does a holiday here look like? After a bucket-and-spade day spent in the surf and sea, hiking along the stunning cliff paths, or dusting off the clubs for a cheeky 18 holes at one of the excellent local golf courses, you and yours can stop off at the hotel’s Surf Shack, rinsing off sandy toes before safely stowing away your surf boards and other equipment. Returning to your holiday-base, you’ll be glad you decided to stay at Polzeath Beach House.

Each room is modern and stylish in design, with thoughtful additional touches that include luxurious cotton waffle bathrobes, Nespresso coffee machines and a mini-fridge. For families and larger groups, sea-view, self-catering apartments are available, offering the privacy of a home from home, with open-plan living spaces, all with the added benefit of access to the hotel’s reception and concierge service. Whether it’s a luxury room or sea-view apartment, all accommodation is supremely comfortable, ideal for tired heads in need of a siesta before heading down for dinner.

Indeed, an indulgent Cornish holiday would not be complete without sampling the delights of the Duchy’s natural larder. Located next door, next to the Residents’ Lounge, the Atlantic Bar & Kitchen offers guests delicious, all-day dining, from breakfast to dinner, with the option to eat al fresco on the Atlantic Terrace looking straight out to sea. With the setting sun as a spectacular backdrop, dinner here really is the epitome of ‘la dolce vita’.

With all of this to offer, plus the must-visit locations of Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac and more just a short scoot away, Polzeath Beach House promises to leave you with treasured holiday memories that are sure to last a lifetime.
