About Lucy Orbell

We live in Surrey with our two children who are 9 and 7. I grew up very near Polzeath and have always had happy memories of the area. We love to spend time down in Cornwall and still have family and friends there. We all enjoy the outdoor life and love the relaxed pace of life Polzeath offers.

Lucy Orbell purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Lucy Orbell chose Polzeath

Under new ownership in 2017. Bluebirds has just been renovated to provide a stylish and modern new kitchen and luxurious bathroom to provide guests with great up-to-date facilities.

When the chance to buy a property so near to one of the best beaches in the UK came up we jumped at the opportunity! As a keen walker the area is unbeatable for stunning coastal hikes. For the children there are so many things to do - water activities, beach activities, cycling along the Camel Trail; the property is the ideal base for all types of adventures. The garden is a great bonus when you're all beached out!

What makes this cottage unique

The location of the property is standout. Although compact it is very light and airy. The generous garden and deck area out back is the perfect sun trap in summer. The property is cosy and quiet in the winter months and the idea that you can just step out onto the beach at any time of day or night to enjoy it is fabulous.

Great little place by the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend in October and the weather was great! We were 3 adults and a 2 year old. The place is well equipped and across the road from the beach with super local amenities and easy parking. Comfy beds, lovely towels and good decking and garden area...would definitely return. The beach is fabulous!

Fabulous time at a fantastic property

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and tidy on arrival. It is genuinely 25 metres from the glorious beach at Polzeath and the same distance from a very nice watering hole and restaraunt called the Waterfront.

Everything was as described on the website and the one question we had about the storage heater was answered very promptly.

We were there for a walking holiday and Bluebird provided an ideal base to explore some fantastic coastline.

The only slight criticism is that the table is a little squashed in to the space between the settee and kitchen units. We could maneuver ourselves in but it could be tricky if one of your party is less able.

All in all, a fantastic place in a fantastic place!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review, it is lovely to hear you had such a good holiday. I take on board your comments about the furniture. We have new plans for the next season which will allow for more space. Best regards, Lucy

A perfect beachside hideaway

  • 5 of 5

A perfect modern, clean and relaxed home away from home.

It really is 50 yards to the beach, yet well enough hidden away to feel insulated from the hustle and bustle.

The garden provides an oasis of calm (although we only got to take full advantage once thanks to the British wet weather).

The litmus test of 'would we want to live here for longer?' is a wholehearted 'yes'.

We couldn't recommend it enough - in fact our neighbours decided to validate our recommendation after visiting us by booking it for next year!
