Overhaven is a spacious and comfortably furnished cottage in a rural setting. Just a 10-minute stroll down the bridleway to Pentireglaze beach or a 5-minute drive to the fabulous surfing beach at Polzeath. There are stunning views over rolling countryside down to the sea.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    What a view!

    Our stay was made enjoyable by: The view of the sea through the sash window from the kitchen table. Passing in and out through the original, wide front door. The setting of the farmhouse with the cobbled yard and traditional outbuildings. Being able to walk straight out to the beach or along the coast path without getting in the car. No street lights. Listening to a robin sing without any background man-made sounds. No overhead power lines to the house - you must have buried them.
