Polzeath beach 11 / 6 / 2014

Polzeath by Rex Features

One of our local beaches is Polzeath and it really is the perfect place to while away the day. Golden sands and clear seas, sun bathe or get active with swimming or surfing. This beach does get very popular but it is clear as to why. A great spot for families with amenities close by and you can learn to surf with schools like Wavehunters who cater from beginners up and also offer surf hire.

In the summer the beach is manned by lifeguards and you may spot marine life such as dolphins!

Polzeath has inspired many writers such as poet, Laurence Binyon who wrote the Remembrance Day ode For the Fallen in 1914 while sitting on The Rumps.

If you fancy a walk just follow the coastal path West and you come to beautiful Greenaway beach with big rock pools and plenty of pebbles, loads of fun for the kids. Daymer bay is around the next corner, another fantastic beach which normally has calmer waves, ideal for swimmers and wind surfers.

Walking to the East reveals fantastic coves, wildlife, rugged cliffs and views over looking the sea and land stretching out for miles; New Polzeath, Lundy Bay, Trebarwith Strand, Port Isaac and on and on. A fantastic walk but not for the faint hearted!

We have room for your surf board, or even your boat at Rooke Cottages. Our facilities include a drying room for your wetsuits and you can borrow a wind-breaker or a surf board should need it. Don’t forget the bucket and spades!
