Whilst at Trehanoo you could holiday for the week and never get in your car. The house and annexe are a 7 minute walk to Polzeath beach and the same to the coast path. From the coast path you can either walk the pretty way to the surfing beach of Polzeath, or head towards Greenaway (a 10 minutes walk), Daymer (a 15 minute walk) or Rock (a 45 minute walk).

Polzeath has a great Spar shop and offers fish and chips, pasties, pizza and ice cream as well as some great surf and clothing shops and a gallery.

Greenaway is a wonderful place for rock pooling when the tide is out and the hours just drift past as you become totally absorbed in shrimping, crabbing and fishing.

Daymer Bay has a large car park that is very reasonable to park in all day and is sandcastle heaven and one of the best windsurfing spots in the country. At low water it has a vast beach.

Rock beach has several pubs/restaurants with wonderful views over the Camel estuary, great shops and also has sailing and a sailing/ powerboat school, water skiing and a waterski school, fishing trips and the ferry to Padstow.

There are also 2 golf courses within 2 miles of Trehanoo, St Enedoc and The Point at Polzeath (ex Roserrow).

Why Kate Buckingham chose Polzeath

Trehanoo House is our family holiday home and as such we keep it set up for ease of use for 8 people on holiday. We keep it up to date. We spend a month in the winter there ourselves, decorating, updating and adding to the comfort and ease of having a holiday in the house. I ask for feedback from tenants and, where possible, include them in next year’s update. Any problems are dealt with immediately by either myself or Jackie the housekeeper.

What makes this house unique

A hot shower when you arrive back from a surf is a joy; you can rinse your wetsuit off whilst still in it and peel it off whilst under the hot water and then hang it up on the purpose made wetsuit rack. Then quickly into the house for a proper shower in the wet room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Just to say thank you for the use of your house and annexe last week, we had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the house and garden (and views) to their full extent. We were short of nothing and it was beautifully cleaned when we arrived.

In fact we were so delighted we would love to re-book for next year if possible?' 'Third year running and I know we'll be back ... yet again it met all our wildest Cornish dreams.'

'We love this house, you've kitted it out so well'

'Trehanoo's been luxury, loved the sundeck, outside shower and comfy sofas'

'Very good house for an extended family holiday.'

'Had a great time riding around on the bikes'

A wonderful all-weather retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Trehanoo; after last year's fantastically wet and cold week, the girls all voted to return this year, and at the end of this year's stay, warmer than last year but rainy and with Hale Bay devoid of teenage nightlife, the girls (who had managed to conjure a crowd of friends from thin air each night) agreed it was the best week ever and we all look forward to next year. I like the idea of being able to use the garden to dine in and to recline on those wonderful hammocks but it is a testament to the house that it creates such an amazingly good atmosphere in a wet July!

Owner's Response: Thanks for a lovely review. I sit at my desk feeling awful for the poor tenants, in yet another awful wet summer, so it really is great that you still manage to have such a good holiday.

Wonderful property, great location, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Trehanoo. 3 adults, 3 children and a dog. The house is spacious, comfortable, practical and fitted with good quality beds and fittings. Lovely big table in the kitchen which everyone can sit together at to eat. The location is brilliant - just a short walk to Polzeath and to the coastal path from where you can access many other beaches. Lots to do locally - we had surfing lessons for adults and children at 'Surf's up' surf school, took the ferry across from Rock to Padstow and explored Polzeath, Greenaway and Daymer Bay beaches. The garden is lovely with a sunny terrace to relax on when you want to stay at home and the world's comfiest reclining chairs :)

Excellent liaison with the owner and caretaker details were provided should they be needed (they weren't).

Highly recommend, we will definitely go back.

Perfect family home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at trehanoo house, everything was exactly as listed and the house comfortably accommodated our family with ample space and extremely well stocked kitchen and living areas. The location is excellent just a stones throw from the very popular oystercatcher pub/restaurant. Flowers and prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch and a special thank you to housekeeper Jackie for accommodating us with some babysitting. I would have no hesitation in recommending trehanoo house to anyone and hope to return in the near future.

Great house for large family /friends

  • 4 of 5

This suited our family of 8 adults and one baby very well. All bedrooms are spacious so nobody feels they have drawn the short straw and the open plan kitchen diner was great. Loved the surf and the walks.

Trehanoo house and annexe are situated between Polzeath and Daymer Bay on the North Cornwall coast, the perfect location to enjoy this famous holiday area. It is minutes from the cliff path walk leading to the surfing beach of Polzeath, or the many rock pools of Greenaway, ideal for crabbing, and on to the miles of sand at Daymer Bay. Heaven for sandcastles and windsurfing. Trehanoo is only 2 Miles from Rock beach where you can sail, waterski, fishing trips or catch the Ferry to Padstow. There are also two golf courses within 2 miles of the house, Roserrow and St Enedoc.
