It's not so much the yuppies I object to, more the yuppie-spawn, some of whom are legally old enough to drink. You will find swarms of teenagers having a good time on Daddy's American Express, and more annoyingly, teenagers having a good time in Daddy's convertible beamer (annoying when you are innocently ... more

We recently returned from what was a pleasant week in Polzeath- but it's changed since I was last there in 1992! What hasn't changed are the beautiful coastal walks (take the coastal path to Port Quinn, it'll take your breath away!), the stunning beach, the local conveniences, the strong surf culture and the friendly locals. Nearby are Rock and Padstow (or Padstein as some call it owning to the fact that Rick Stein owns half of it), towns which both now apparently attract well healed holiday makers.

We have recently returned from a week's holiday in Polzeath in Cornwall. Unfortunately for us, even though it was August, it did rain heavily every day but I'll try not to let that colour my judgement! Polzeath is on the North Cornish coast and is fairly close to Wadebridge and about twenty miles from Newquay. The centre of Polzeath is not vey big at all and is situated on a small headland. It's just over an hour's drive from Exeter which is very easily accessible from the M5. When you first drive into Polzeath from either direction you come down a steep hill and what will strike you above all else is the extremely busy beach whatever the weather! ...
