There is plenty to do in Polzeath, whatever the time of year. And, no matter what the weather, you will always get a warm welcome at Surfs Edge

Only a short distance away are many stunning beaches including Polzeath, Rock and Daymer Bay.
Rock mainly appeals to the sailing fraternity and Daymer Bay is a flat safe beach used by families and kite and wind surfers.
There are coastal path walks in both directions from Polzeath beach which offer fantastic sea and costal views.


The picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac (famous for 'Doc Martin' and The Fishermen's Friends) is only a short drive away as is Padstow, probably best reached by the ferry from Rock.


Further along the coast is the beautiful National Trust port of Boscastle with its harbour and unusual shops. Also nearby is Tintagel with 'King Arthur's Castle' and Bodmin Moor, with its fantastic landscape and walks. For the gardener, why not consider a trip to the Eden Project in St Austell or for the children Flambards Theme Park in Helston has a host of rides and several exhibitions including the Victorian village, Britain in the Blitz and the War Gallery.


For the more sporting, Polzeath beach boasts several surf schools – and surfers are in the sea everyday of the year! Rock is the local centre for all kinds of sailing whilst Daymer bay is popular with bathers and both wind and kite surfers. The adventure sport of Coasteering offers a number of other exciting activities - I haven't tried any of these myself but our daughter enjoyed it! The Camel Trail, a 17 mile flat biking and walking trail between Bodmin and Padstow, is waiting to be explored. And, for those who don’t own a bicycle, there are several hire shops in Wadebridge. Wadebridge to Padstow is about a 5 mile trip. One way bike hire is available.


Excellent golf facilities are in easy reach with both the famous links course, St Enodoc and the Point at Polzeath,  close by. The Point also boasts an indoor heated swimming pool, spa, sauna and fitness suite, tennis courts and other amenities.
