The Oystercatcher pub stands near the top of the hill above the delightful village of Polzeath and has panoramic views of the beach and surrounding countryside, with sun terraces and garden surrounding the building. The apartments are located on the second, first and ground floors of the building and a number of them take advantage of these views. The Oystercatcher is popular with visitors and locals alike and offers a very friendly welcome to all. Outside summer holidays, food is served mid-week from 12-3pm and 6-9pm with food available all day on Saturday and Sunday until 9pm (and they also do a Sunday roast!). During the summer holidays, food is served 12noon-9pm, all day every day.  It is also a venue for live entertainment.  There are live bands on most Saturday nights throughout the year, apart from during school summer holiday time. Don't worry, this won't spoil your beauty sleep as the bar's licensing hours are until midnight 7 days a week and the entertainment will usually finish half an hour before the bar closes. We can't think of a better way to start your holiday - unpack the suitcase and then trot into the bar for a nice freshly ground coffee, a cup of tea or a pint of local real ale! In fact you could manage to do without the car all week if you like as everything you could possibly need is right there in the village - lovely big beach (great for children and for surfing), surf schools and hire, food shops, restaurants and magnificent coastal walks. Just down the road in Rock (about a mile and a half) is a Michelin star restaurant at the St Enodoc Hotel, Padstow is a quick ferry crossing away from Rock, and just down the road is Daymer Bay and Trebetherick. If you fancy eating in Padstow there are also water taxis operating late into the evening from Rock. Also in Polzeath is a centre for a Voluntary Marine Wildlife Area initiated by North Cornwall Heritage Coast and Countryside Service, who also promote an understanding of the area through walks, talks and beach events. There are two golf courses within a 5 minute drive (St Enodoc has one of the finest links courses in the South West). 

With some pleasant sea views, this self contained ground floor apartment with its own entrance door has an attractive open plan living area, a family room and bathroom with shower.

Local Area

Mention Polzeath, and one of the first things you think of is likely to be surfing. This is yet another stretch of coastline that is irresistible to those who like to spend much of their time riding the waves. Yet Polzeath has plenty more of interest to offer, including craft and gift shops, cafes, a pub offering good food and live music, amazing eateries and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As with much of Cornwall's coastline, the scenery here is spectacular, and there are plenty of coastal walks to be found, including a lovely route to nearby Daymer Bay. If surfing is not your thing, there is New Polzeath beach (just to the right of the main beach) which is ideal for swimmers, or of course if you prefer to relax and take it easy, you could just sunbathe instead!  Keep your eyes open, though, as if you're lucky, you may just see a few of the dolphins or seals who are regular visitors to this stretch of water  Nearby, there is The Point, for keen golfers, and Cornish Rock Tors, who offer coasteering, sea kayaking, wild swimming and climbing for those who fancy something more adventurous. Polzeath and the nearby area is also a favourite with celebrities, and has been known to attract royal visitors too.
