Award Winning Cornish Holiday Property
Carn Mar in Polzeath has been voted the best self-catering accommodation in Cornwall and the second best in the whole of the South West. Here are five reasons why the Cornwall Tourism Awards judges picked it as their winner.
- Breathtaking views
Arguably occupying the best position in Polzeath, Carn Mar boasts panoramic sea views from almost every vantage point in the house. After an interrupted night’s sleep, throw open the curtains to a backdrop of pure sand, sea and sky. As you make breakfast, watch as the famous white rollers rise and fall with the tide. Laze on the expansive balcony with a cold drink in hand and soak up the Cornish sunshine. The exquisite reading room is a popular hang out if you want a quiet moment to yourself as you watch the seagulls circle in the breeze.
2 Direct beach access
Beach access is a breeze at Carn Mar. Simply open the garden gate to the South West Coast Path that leads you straight down to the sand, with an option for high and low tide access. Those who love surfing will be in their element here. Check the surf from your bedroom window and be amongst the waves in minutes. With one of the most beautiful stretches of the UK’s coast path on your doorstep you will be spoilt for choice with where to head first. Discover hidden beaches, the dizzying heights of Pentire Point and the impressive rock formation of The Rumps.
3 Interiors to die for
The interiors of Carn Mar are sure to blow you away. From the moment you walk through the door, you will be struck by the breathtaking outline of a heavenly white staircase sweeping up to dreamy bedrooms finished in crisp white and dove grey. Sleeping 14 across six exquisite bedrooms, almost all with panoramic sea views, Carn Mar is perfect for a family gathering or a celebration with friends. You can gather round the statement double-fronted log burner with a long Tom Raffield dining table on one side and a delightfully plush lounge on the other.
4 Endless outdoor spaces
If you think the interiors of Carn Mar are sublime, you won’t be disappointed when you step outside. Head onto the softly manicured infinity lawn that melts its way into the ocean beyond. Meander down the garden path past flower beds spilling with colourful blooms and tropical succulents to the built-in seating area around an impressive fit pit. Here you have a front row seat to the legendary Polzeath sunsets where toasting marshmallows as you share tales of the day gone by is compulsory. To the back of Carn Mar you’ll find the sheltered morning terrace – an oasis of calm on windier days.
5 Exceptional customer service
Matched by equally exceptional customer service provided by the Latitude50 team based just ten minutes away in Rock, guests will receive a special meet and greet service on arrival where they can pick the team’s brains on anything from working the Sonos to the best local surf spots. A chilled local tipple is waiting in the fridge as well as a locally sourced hamper bursting with tantalising treats. Any problems, day or night, the team are on hand to help, so guests can focus on the important things – rest and relaxation.
