Atlantic View Holidays





Description:

Welcome to Atlantic View Holidays, outstanding holiday cottage provider. We provide self catering accommodation in two houses in New Polzeath, between Port Isaac and Rock, in North Cornwall. Both properties overlook one of the finest beaches on the North Cornwall coast, and are in an outstandingly beautiful area.

Atlantic View House was built in 1907 and sleeps 14. It was fully renovated in 1999 to maintain period features yet provide all modern comforts and the owners have maintained and added to the high standard of accommodation, fixtures, fittings and contents ever since. During the winter of 2013/14 the kitchen was replaced and the ground floor redecorated. Two new en-suite shower rooms replace one of the bathrooms. It was inspected by Visit England in March 2016 and awarded the top grade of 5* Gold.

Atlantic View Coach House, which sleeps 8, was re built in 2011/12 taking care to use vernacular materials including the typical Cornish stone, reclaimed Delabole slate roof and slate patio, yet providing a light and spacious modern living experience. It has been equipped to the highest standard and was assessed by Visit England in March 2016 and awarded the top grade of 5* Gold.

A full cleaning service is provided but we ask that the properties are left as clean and tidy as possible.



Location:

New Polzeath, which is actually the earliest settled part of the area, lies on the north side of Hayle Bay. It is dominated by a row of Edwardian villas on the top of the cliff, all built in 1907, of which Atlantic View is one.

The typical beach village of Polzeath lies at the back of the bay and the settlement rises up the hill on the south side of the bay towards Trebetherick and Rock. Polzeath provides a good range of shops selling surf and beach equipment, clothes, souvenirs and ice cream. Surf boards and wetsuits can also be hired. One of the best stocked Spa shops in the country can provide for almost all your catering needs and there are good specialist food shops a short drive away, some of which will deliver.

A range of cafes and restaurants and two pubs provide for the hungry and thirsty. Two surf schools provide lessons for beginners or the more experienced surfer. There is a recreation area with trampolines, tennis and crazy golf. Equally spectacular for a summer or winter vacation the North Cornwall coast provides interest and activities for all.

The beach at Polzeath (Hayle Bay) is large and sandy. Lifeguards are on hand during the summer months and it is considered to be one of the safest beaches in Cornwall. It is wonderful for families and surfers alike with its sand and rock pools, Atlantic rollers and surf school.

Within a short distance several other beaches can be found - Broadagogue, only accessible on a very low tide down a precipitous cliff, with its fantastic waves that make the climb down worthwhile, Greenaway, a haven for children with shrimping nets, and Daymer Bay, where families share the fun with windsurfers enjoying the relative calm of the Camel Estuary.

Becoming a common site, particularly at Daymer Bay are paddle surfers and kite surfers. Further afield are Lundy Bay, with its caves and passages, best visited on a low tide with picnic in hand, magnificent Tregardock and Trebarwith Strand. There are other hidden coves and beaches off the beaten track just waiting to be explored.

Walkers will enjoy the extensive coastal paths owned by the National Trust which pass through areas of outstanding natural beauty, and right in front of the properties. Some of the loveliest stretches are to be found between Pentire Point and Port Isaac, much of this area being directly accessible on foot from the houses. Rumps Point is magnificent and provides a haven for wildlife - seals are regularly seen here, and more occasionally basking sharks and dolphins.

Bird watchers will appreciate the large variety of sea birds including puffins which nest on The Mouls, a rocky outcrop just off Rumps Point. In spring and early summer the cliffs are a blaze of colour with carpets of wild flowers in bloom, and in high summer many lovely butterflies can be seen including rare visitors such as the Clouded Yellow. Local artists are often seen here taking advantage not only of the beauty, but also of the light for which Cornwall is renowned.
