Polzeath may be small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in adventures! Perched on the North Coast of Cornwall, there’s an abundance of activities and things to do right on our doorstep. 

Explore Polzeath

There’s plenty to discover as soon as you step out the door in Polzeath. A large, golden, sandy beach is just a short walk away. In town you’ll find surf schools and hire, food shops and restaurants. We’re also right on the stunning South West Coast path, perfectly placed for exploring the magnificent North Cornwall Coast.

Learn to Surf

A trip to Polzeath isn’t complete without trying a spot of surfing. Even the former Prime Minister would agree. There are plenty of surf schools in the town to get you all kitted out and make sure you stay safe. 


Catch your own dinner on a fishing trip from Padstow or Rock. Mackerel, pollock, cod, gurnard, ling and even bass can be caught. 

Walking and cycling

The Camel Trail is just a few miles away and runs from along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. You’ll find soaring beech trees and carpets of wildflowers in spring. Head from Wadebridge to Padstow for sweeping estuary views, or explore the lesser-known section from Dunmere to Wenfordbridge. Dogs are welcome, but the path is shared with cyclists and horses, so make sure you keep Rover close. 


The nearby towns of Rock and Padstow are well known for the stunning sailing along the Camel Estuary and along the coastline. Seek out hidden bays and beaches, swim, snorkel and sunbathe and you’ll find it hard to believe you’re still in Cornwall. 


Polzeath is just a few minutes away from one of the finest Links Golf Courses in the South West of England. St Enodoc is known for its challenging and varied course design and some stunning sea views to boot.
