About this property

Please note that there are building works taking place at the property next door to Surfs Edge. The owner and building company are aware of the sensitivity of the neighbours and take this into consideration.

Surfs Edge is a beautifully-appointed, three-storey, detached holiday home on an elevated position overlooking the sea in Polzeath, Cornwall. This pet-friendly abode has a nautical theme throughout and consists of a main house and annexe with off-road parking, an enclosed garden, and open-plan living, an ideal setup for large family gatherings, with the beach and local amenities a stone's throw away. Climbing the stone steps leads you into the main house with a reverse-level setup; head straight upstairs to the open-plan living space with a large, sumptuous corner sofa set in front of a Smart TV and woodburning stove. You'll also find a fully-equipped kitchen with a range master and American-style fridge/freezer, a utility, cloakroom, and dining seating, whilst the patio doors lead out to the balcony with far-reaching views across Polzeath and the sea, sure to be your favourite sunset spot with a glass of wine. Completing the first floor is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and single bedroom featuring a day bed. The ground floor hosts three more bedrooms; a double, twin and bunk bedroom (featuring double for the bottom bunk and single for the top), plus an impressive bathroom with a large walk-in shower and sunken bath for the ultimate relaxation. Heading into the annexe from inside the main entrance to the house, there is a mezzanine double bedroom and a bathroom, along with another open-plan living space with a kitchen, dining area, and sitting area with a TV; ideal for younger guests or grandparents looking for a hideaway! Be sure to spend summer days in your secluded, enclosed garden to dine alfresco and bathe in the sun. When it's time to explore, Polzeath has a selection of eateries including The Waterfront, Cracking Crab, and Oystercatcher, as well as the family-friendly Polzeath Beach for surfing, and coastal walks to the National Trust Pentire Point. Within easy reach you'll find the fishing village of Rock, the town of Wadebridge, and Padstow just across the River Camel; visit the National Lobster Hatchery, trek the coast to St George’s Cove, or bring your bikes to explore the Camel Trail. More popular attractions include Bodmin Moor, Port Isaac, and Tintagel, renowned for its local legends of King Arthur and Merlin at Tintagel Castle. Gather your loved ones for a coastal retreat in Cornwall at Surfs Edge.

Polzeath's sandy, rock-pool-lined beach is one of the top surfing beaches in the country. The South West Coast Path, a 630-mile trail, passes in Polzeath. Wadebridge, nestled along the River Camel, has shops, bars, restaurants, and North Cornwall's sole family-owned cinema. Padstow, with its harbour, pastel-washed mediaeval homes, and famed eateries, is worth investigating. Newquay's 11 kilometres of golden beaches are within driving reach. Polzeath is a good place to explore Cornwall.

    We were surrounded by noisy building work and unsightly full skips and debris. The house had no soundproofing and every step could be heard in the floor below. Sleep was a challenge as the see through curtains were not fit for purpose and let in 100% of the light also not helped by security lights from house opposite which were on 24/7. Black out blinds are very much required. Although the sofas and cushions were great the cheap flat pack Argos beds were very uncomfortable and a disappointment when one is paying so much rent. As regular visitors to the area this is the most underwhelming and overpriced house we have ever rented. Unless you want a Lebanon meets Polzeath experience avoid at all costs!

    The bed in my granddaughter’s bed had been held together with rubber bands which broke when she sat on it. I appreciate that after 2 days it was replaced by a folding bed with the mattress on it, no apology or explanation was given as to why the bed had been left in a poor state of repair was received. The decking is rotten in many areas and dangerous in a few (I have taken photos) with the wood collapsing in a number of areas causing rusty nails to be exposed and creating trip hazards, in one area it is obvious that the decking has collapsed and rather than repairing it properly it has been botched leaving the decking at an angle thus creating a trip hazard for elderly guests, the banister around the decking is completely rotten in a few places meaning it is not attached to the uprights again this is dangerous and I believe a health and safety issue . The hinges to flaps on the balcony table are broken and sharp, I assume the owners are aware of this as the flaps are held on with bungie cord. There are broken and missing tiles in the main bathroom with sharp edges, and there is no pull cord meaning that this light is permanently on. Many taps are loose throughout the property and cupboard doors not properly attached as well as broken and damaged crockery and glasses on the shelves and in the cupboards, the bent front door key mentioned by a guest in september 22 is still present in the accomodation and as mentioned by these guests no hand soap or cleaning products are available just empty bottles. One of the bed side lights in the annex cannot be plugged in as the flex does not reach the socket, this has been mentioned by previous guests but never remedied. The advice book in the annex gives a contact number for emergency contact, I contacted this number when the day bed broke, the couple who I contacted were surprised as they sold surfs edge 13 years ago, this I feel is an indication of the lack of care which the property is afforded by the current company which owns it. The property is in serious need of love and care before a guest is injured.

    It was perfect for 9 of us (3 generations) and a dog- very comfortable, spacious, stylishly furnished and wonderful location. It is very well-equipped and when we reported a faulty toaster to Bray’s they replaced it within hours. We’d love to go back one day. One suggestion - to provide some small soaps and at least one toilet roll per loo on arrival. Apart from that, all our needs anticipated. Thank you.
