Drum Fish

50° 34' 23.339"N -4° 55' 4.178"W

This chic coastal pad in Polzeath is the ideal base for an adrenalin-fuelled surf escape or a sand-between-toes family getaway.

View from the balcony at Drum Fish, a self-catering holiday home in Polzeath, North Cornwall


Long days on the beach, relaxed al-fresco suppers on the balcony and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves are all things to look forward to at Drum Fish. Named after the rather striking species of fish found in the tropical waters of the Atlantic ocean, Drum Fish is a coastal haven through and through.

Set back from the main road running down to the beach, Drum Fish occupies a unique location alongside the green grass of Tristram campsite. Out of season enjoy an outlook over quiet fields, and in the summer make the most of the vibrant atmosphere and surf culture. Drum Fish is just moments from the fine sand and Atlantic surf of Polzeath, making it the ideal base for a holiday by the sea.

This stylish property combines beachside luxe with retro flourishes and modern comforts. On the first floor is a vibrant open-plan living area. Here you have a contemporary kitchen with everything you could need for holiday dining, a long statement table for entertaining and comfy seating areas for evenings in. A log burner ensures cosy evenings all round when the waves are crashing against the cliffs outside.

Through the double glass doors you'll find a spacious balcony. Here you can gather round the large wooden table for family breakfasts with a view or recline on the deckchairs and soak up the Cornish sunshine. Enjoy al-fresco dining with a magnificent ocean backdrop and watch the sun go down with a cold glass in hand.

Three stylish bedrooms combine a dreamy colour palette with white wood shutters and natural wooden headboards. The chic bathrooms are a symphony of white with modern metro tiles and monsoon shower fittings.

This inspiring coastal home combines all the ingredients to create an unforgettable escape beside the waves on the north Cornish coast.
