This estate has been built on the site of old farm buildings. The original farmhouse itself has been fully renovated.
I last stopped at the farmhouse back in 1965. There have been lots of improvements in the area but a couple of things have gone
The property is great for a big family. Room to park three or four cars offroad. Large livingroom with sofas and armchairs and a modern TV.
Beds are comfy and plenty of toilets and showers. It's got most of what you need. Only thing missing is a drying room for wetsuits. (everyone seems to wear wetsuits these days)
The only fault with the whole accommodation is creaky upstairs floorboards. I'm told this will be looked at.
You can book this either directly through the owners from their Webbs Retreat website or through Natural Retreats.
When the estate was built hey put in a fresh access road and built some lakes around the stream. There are picnic tables there for use by residents.
The other nearby farm has been converted to a Golf Course and health and fitness Spa with restuarant, known as the point.
The only downside in 50 years, removal of farming animals has caused bramble to grow around the brook so you can't walk alongside it where the original footpath was. The brook contains eels about a foot long. Almost impossible to catch unless practiced.
I'll be booking to come back here again with family one day.
The only drawback was the Thursday changeover.
Polzeath beach is one of the best and safest surfing beaches I've ever used.
