North Cornwall Attractions
Walking, Rambling and Cycling:The South Western coastal footpath runs in both directions along the coast offering breathtaking views. The Camel Trail can be enjoyed by cyclists, walkers and bird watchers. It stretches from Padstow along the old railway line to Bodmin and beyond. There is also the Saints Way which starts at Padstow, goes up along the Petherick Creek and on towards Mevagissey. See walking holiday in Cornwall for further details of our spectacular walks.
Golf, Tennis and Swimming:Two miles away is Trevose Golf & Country Club, boasting an 18 hole championship golf course, as well as two 9 hole courses, a swimming pool, tennis courts and restaurant. Please see golf holidays cornwall for further information about our special golfing holiday promotions, and the great range of courses in the area.
Beaches:The saying in the area is "Seven Bays for seven days." Pols Piece is within easy reach of Trevone Bay, Harlyn Bay, Mother Iveys Bay, Boobys Bay, Constantine Bay, Treyarnon Bay, & Porthcothan Bay. Click here to see breathtaking aerial pictures of all the local beaches.
Padstow:Is only 1.5 miles away. This delightful old fishing town, which in recent years has been made famous by Rick Stein and his Seafood Restaurant, still retains much of its original old world charm. There is a ferry across the estuary to Rock, a haven for sailing and water skiing.
Surfing and Sailing:North Cornwall is Britain's prime location for surfing, with popular nearby beaches including Newquay, Perranporth, and Gwithian needing no introduction. There are also some lesser know suf beaches even closer to home, including Constantine Bay, Harlyn Bay, and several others. See Harlyn Surf School for more information about learning to surf locally see Harlyn surf school on our links page.
Visitor Attractions:Other attractions close to Pols Piece that we have not already mentioned include Padstow town and harbour, and the villages up and down the coast of St Ives, Port Isaac, and Tintagel. Further south we have the amazing gardens including the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trebah, Penrose Water Gardens, Trelissick, and Glendurgan. The Eden project is going from strength to strength and no visit to the area is complete without witnessing their amazing bio-domes, and the bleak outlook of Bodmin Moor (will you see "The Beast"?) are not far away either.
Finally we have to mention the resturants. Pols Piece apartments are almost midway between Rick Stein's Fish resturant in Padstow and Jamie Oliver's '15' in Watergate Bay, but there are actually a large number of other restaurants with less famous proprietors that offer fantastic value and food quality in the area.
