The Carriage House, near the beaches of Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock, is a stylish single-storey detached cottage with its own garden, and with a multi-burner in the slate-floored, contemporary open plan living-room, guests will be cosy year-round. This little retreat sits on the other side of the boundary wall from the neighbour’s farm and cowshed and away from the Owners' oak barn pottery studio – where you can enjoy a lesson and the surrounding wildlife gardens. One of four cottages at Hale, the property is managed with care for the environment and has been awarded a Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold award. North Cornwall is a wonderful area, and The Carriage House is an excellent base from which to set off on each day's adventures.
A short drive away, the beaches of Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock are a must for surfers and paddlers alike. For those wishing to investigate Port Isaac and Padstow, the choice of seaside shops, art galleries, tea-rooms and pubs is extensive. There is so much to do in north Cornwall as the beaches are stunning. Polzeath is ideal for surfing and the Camel Trail at Wadebridge offers a great cycle to Padstow for all the family. In Padstow you will find a plethora of restaurants and shops to visit but do not miss out on the foot ferry over to Rock as this is a great jaunt across the water. At Port Isaac the Michelin Starred chef, Nathan Outlaw, has the tapas-style Fish Kitchen next to the harbour and his fine dining restaurant. At Rock, the Mariners and the Rock Inn serve locally brewed Sharps beer, locally sourced fish dishes and steaks supplied by the renowned Philip Warren Butchers. For those quick snacks the local baker Malcolm Barnecutt bakes great pasties to takeaway which can be enjoyed on the local beaches.
