There are plenty of things to do around Polzeath. One of our all time favourite beaches are Lundy and Epphaven. Its either a 2 minute drive to the national trust car park, then a 15 minute walk to the beach, or an hour's walk from the house with incredible views in from the headland. The trick with this is to go at low tide. Its wild and rocky with lovely long sandy bay in low tide, and resembles a Dali painting, with its huge rock formations. We really love it, especially in the summer, we always swim here (and all the beaches). Its relatively quiet due to its remote location. Another beautiful beach is Port Quin - around a 10 min drive away, gorgeous little fishing bay, heaven for rock pools. S You can do a lovely walk to Doyden castle from Port Quin. You only need to walk around 15 mins to get amazing views. We always find a little sheltered spot and take a winter picnic there. The longcross hotel near Port Quin is nice for a drink or cream tea, it has a tiny playground, great sea views and an absolutely gorgeous ornamental garden. Port Isaac - the famous Doc Marten TV series fishing village is nice for lunch/tea and a wonderful stroll through the historic beautiful village.. The next bay down is Port Gavern - there is a great old pub there perfect for a meal or drinks. The famous chick Rock is a 10 minute drive away, we recommend the Rock Inn for a sun downer or drink. There are some good eateries such as the Blue Tomato. The walk to Rock passes Daymer bay in Trebertherick, a gorgeous sheltered bay ideal for small children to play. Its around a 45 minute walk to get there, with breathtaking views enroute. Further afield is Bodmin Moor which is has the rare wild beauty that moors have to offer complete with wild horses. On the way there is one of our favourite lunch pubs is the one in St Mabyn, its cozy and atmospheric in the winter with the log fire and the food is great. Padstow is a nice day out with its great variety of boutiques and restaurants. It is best to to drive to Rock and get the ferry across. I Wadebridge is a pleasant town 15 minute drive away. It has some chic little lunch sports and nice shops, including the Vine - greengrocers. Its a real place rather than tourist spot. The indian restaurant there is highly recommended - the Raj. The beauty of the the Polzeath surf house is its location, if you don't fancy getting into the car much there is plenty to do in Polzeath and within walking distance. If you want to buy some quality fresh ingredients, St Endellion farm shop is a great option. It has a lovely cafe with wonderful lunches/coffees, and a playground with lovely views across the countryside. There is a small holding of animals for children to see.
