A ten minute walk from Trefresa will take you to the village shops, post office and filling station, and they are well filled with all the necessities for your holiday.
You may walk across the Golf Course but please follow the white stones which mark the footpath, and keep your eyes open for golfers.
In our locality you will find Rock, Trebetherick, Daymer and Polzeath are on the east side of the River Camel estuary.
Daymer Bay is about two miles away and is especially suitable for small children with its golden sandy beach backed by dunes. The water remains shallow, even at high tide, but be careful when the weather is rough. At the back of the beach is St. Enodoc Golf Course and in the middle of the course is St. Enodoc church. Once buried in sand, with an entry only through the roof, the church is now accessible and used regularly for Sunday services. John Betjeman was buried here. Follow the white stones across the golf course to reach it - it is well worth the visit.
A little further on from Daymer Bay is Polzeath beach, ideal for surfing or exploring rock pools. Lessons in surfing may be arranged at the beach or, if you are already experienced, you can dive straight in. For the less hardy - like us - you may hire a wet suit, and surfboards are also available for hire. Make sure that you do not go too far from the shore, especially when the tide is going out or when the surf is very rough, because there can be some very strong currents caused by the estuary flow. There are lifeguards at Polzeath who will help you to enjoy the best of your time there.
One word of warning about all the beaches - NEVER ALLOW THE CHILDREN TO GO IN THE WATER IN, OR ON, INFLATABLES WHEN THE WIND IS BLOWING and even when it is calm it is best to keep them very close to the shore and to watch them AT ALL TIMES.
Please take your rubbish with you and put it in the relevant receptacle - we know you don't want it, but neither do we !!
Around the coast from Polzeath travelling east towards Tintagel and beyond, there are many small bays and coves to be enjoyed. Lundy Bay is just one of them and is an ideal place to spend time in the rock pools or to surf when the sea is rolling in. Be careful at all times in these small coves, the tide can roll in whilst you are intent on catching a fish, or just lying sunbathing. We have a wonderful coastguard service, an excellent RNLI team, and helicopters can be called from RAF St. Mawgan or RNAS Culdrose, but we don't want you to over-work them - so please be vigilant, but enjoy yourselves.
