Positioned just a short stroll away from the white rollers and sugar sands of Polzeath Beach, this stylish, dog-friendly haven flaunts a crackling log burner, garden room and vistas across Pentire Point and the Atlantic Ocean.

Nestled in the popular area of Highcliffe, just a short stroll from the beach and the South West Coast Path, Windwhistle is the ultimate base for a holiday filled with sand, surf and sunsets.

Start your day with a relaxing stroll down to the beach where you can enjoy an exhilarating surf session. With an array of fantastic surf schools based on the beach, you can hire everything you need and be standing up in no time at all. Refuel with a hearty brunch in one of the vibrant surf cafés overlooking the beach.

Yoga and fitness lovers will be in their element with the brand new Highcliffe wellness space located just around the corner which come complete with a yoga studio studio, changing rooms with showers, gym and a health café. Join a yoga class or a gym session (available on an ad hoc day rate).

It's easy to join the South West Coast Path from Windwhistle and you will be spoilt for choice with breathtaking coastal walks. In one direction, stroll on the path that hugs the cliff along to Greenaway Beach, Daymer Bay and Rock. In the other direction, enjoy a ramble up to Pentire Point where you will be rewarded with panoramic views. For a longer adventure, head on to discover The Rumps rock formation and the hidden beaches of Lundy Bay and Epphaven.

For a day out, hop in the car and head to the beautiful estuary-side village of Rock, taking under ten-minutes. Here you can partake in a whole host of watersports in the calm waters of the Camel Estuary. Browse the shops, enjoy a spot of lunch in Paul Ainsworth's pub The Mariners and explore the rolling sand dunes. From Rock you can catch the ferry across the water to the pretty harbour town of Padstow.

The famous fishing village of Port Isaac is also within easy reach (a fifteen-minute drive). Here you can explore the narrow, cobbled streets and spot all the locations made famous by Doc Martin and the Fisherman's Friends film. Sample the best in fresh, locally caught seafood at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw or The Fish Kitchen.

All Polzeath's restaurants and bars are within walking distance of Windwhistle. The popular Oyster Catcher pub is just a two-minutes' walk away and here you can enjoy classic pub food and soak up the vibrant atmosphere. Head along the coast path to The Cracking Crab and enjoy a cold local tipple in the large garden. Head to Surfside on the beach for the best in local surf and turf with a cocktail at the Rum Bar to wash it down. You can also walk in the other direction into Trebetherick and enjoy a delicious meal at the colourful restaurant The Mowhay.

Walk to the beach

Simply head out of the driveway and head to the main road that meanders down to Polzeath Beach. Door to sand takes just ten-minutes. Alternatively turn right out of the driveaway to join the South West Coast Path and reach the lesser-known Greenaway Beach. Both are just a ten-minute scenic stroll away.
