We stayed for a week at the beginning of October and it was great. The property was easy to find and the instructions were very clear. The house itself was spotless and had the essentials for a week away (although weirdly no wooden spoons). The bathrooms are superb - especially the shower although with no blinds or curtains upstairs you are a little bit on show to the neighbours. The driveway takes a bit of getting used to as it's quite steep and you need to reverse up - but we got the hang of it after a while.
There's a superb outside shower for taking your wetsuit off after the sea and a rail for hanging it up to dry. A very useful touch.
The bedrooms are a decent size with good storage but the beds are tiny - I'm pretty sure they're smaller than a standard double. Sleeping was tricky as there was almost no wiggle room so you're constantly kneeing your partner in the leg and vice versa. That was the only downside to an otherwise superb week.
I would definitely stay there again but this time would sleep in separate rooms to guarantee a good night's sleep.
We had a lovely time in this homely cottage, my husband walked out every morning to check the waves as the cottage is almost a stones throw from the beach. Polzeath has a small store for groceries and is a great location for exploring the area. The garden gets some lovely sun and the house is in a very safe location for children away from the road.
