We had the most amazing week in this gorgeous house which is so well positioned to enjoy the surrounding splendour. The house offers all the amenities and comforts you could possibly need. We enjoyed many BBQ's whilst enjoying the view and appreciating some Cornwall sunsets. The beautiful beach is a short walk away - handy for our children and dogs. The owners are so welcoming - incredible cream tea enjoyed on our arrival not to mention the facility of fresh farm vegetables and Roskilly's ice cream onsite! Thank you for having us - we'd love to come back.

Polzeath is buzzing with surfers , really great atmosphere , some brilliant restaurants and coffee places , best pizzas in Cornwall from the cafe with the open oven located on the beach next to car park . Would recommend Linga Longa to everyone beautiful .

Ideal for all the family including a toddler and a dog. They just loved the garden!! Only stayed a week (wish we'd booked two) but already planning to return next year. Absolutely love the area. It's an ideal location with easy access to Polzeath and surrounding towns/villages. Staff at 'The Point' very helpful and friendly. Can't wait for next year!!!
