The house was excellently resourced with everything we needed for our 5 day stay. The rooms were quite spacious and the kitchen, beds and bathrooms excellent. We enjoyed the wood fire as it was quite cold while we were there. The major complaint was that the heat in the radiators turned off in the night so it got quite cold in the house in late November. We did call the local person who said she would get that corrected (the controls were behind a locked door so we could not adjust the time heat was on - just the level of heat) but it didn't seem to make any difference as the heat went off during a portion of the night for the duration of our stay. Also the TV worked for one evening but I couldn't get it to work after that. After the experience with the heat we didn't think it worth asking for help with the TV. So overall the house was just great but if you stay in the winter make sure you have the heat assured throughout the night and that the TV is working.
We had a lovely time in this homely cottage, my husband walked out every morning to check the waves as the cottage is almost a stones throw from the beach. Polzeath has a small store for groceries and is a great location for exploring the area. The garden gets some lovely sun and the house is in a very safe location for children away from the road.
