About Dominic Leese

After falling in love with Polzeath having spent 10 years of coming here on holiday with my wife and twin daughters we finally were lucky enough to move here to live in 2007. With a fantastic community and lots of outdoor activities we are never short of fun times. Spending free time surfing and Gig rowing on the Camel estuary, evenings and weekends on the beach with family & friends, having a BBQ and watching the sun set over the ocean with a glass of wine!!

Dominic Leese purchased this villa in 2007

Why Dominic Leese chose Polzeath

Polzeath is a fantastic location with its easy access to beautiful beaches, stunning walks, fantastic watersports

We decided to purchased our two lovely beach cottages, Tides Reach & Waves End at auction as they were only about 50 meters from the stunning beach in Polzeath. We completely rebuilt them internally and have been welcoming holiday makers and returning families since 2007. It is a real pleasure to meet new people coming to stay with us on holiday and building freindships over the years as they return.

With the extra land that came with our cottages we have now built two brand new 3 bedroom beach cottages, 1 & 2 The Navigators, next door which were ready for the 2013 season and have now build new 2 bedroom cottages 3 & 4 The Navigators ready for 2016 season.

What makes this villa unique

Our cottages are in a fantastic location in the centre of Polzeath with easy access to all the local amenities.

With surfboard & wetsuit hire on the beach along with cafes & restaurants. Being only 50 meters level walk to the beach with parking you do not need to get in a car & pay for parking on the beach & you can pop back anytime to use the cottages.

We have the 2 Michelin Star restaurant "Nathan Outlaw" in Port Isaac and Rick Steins fish restaurants just a 10 minute ferry ride accross the scenic Camel estuary.

Along with fresh mussels and oysters farmed in the estuary and available from the fish mongers in Rock. There is an array of local produce from the farm shop at Trebretherick, locally sourced meat from the butchers , and the best pasties in cornwall for the bakers "Barnecutts"

Guestbook comments from the manager

2nd April 2012 Sarah, Dave & Tom from Brighton

"Oh my word - just back from a gorgeous evening walk on the beach and returned to an equally gorgeous victoria sponge and card. The cottage is fab! This has been a fantastic break - it's just beautiful here.

We will be back!

Saturday 3rd March 2012 Stuart, Julia, Hannah & Charlie

We really enjoyed our stay at Waves End. Weather was superb for late March. Cottage is in a fantastic location and has been perfect for our stay.... Love Polzeath and it's great beach! See you again soon.

21st Oct 2011 Jackie, Gordon & Rachael

Our 5th visit to Tides Reach and although the weather was very mixed we still had a fantastic time! The highlight was seeing a seal on our walk to Pentire Point. We all feel at home at Tides Reach and look forward to coming back next year.

Perfect place as a perfect base

  • 5 of 5

The property is situated literally less than a minutes walk from the beach, local shops and restaurants which was very handy. It's the ideal place to use as a base to visit other parts of the North Cornish coast as well, or just chill in Polzeath. The property itself was fabulous - well equipped with everything we needed and fitted out to a very high standard. The balcony was our favourite place to sit on sunny but chilly evenings as we were sheltered from the wind and could watch the world go by with a G&T or glass of fizz. We will definitely be returning to 1 The Navigators, I would highly recommend it.

Beautiful, light and warm

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely week in this lovely house, we all felt very relaxed. Its a minutes walk from the beech so it was easy to go surfing and even better we could come back to the house to get out of our wetsuits and have a hot shower around the back of the house, what a brilliant idea.

The house is very clean and modern, with lovely light and one window we could see the see through the village of Polzeath. Dominic the landlord was so friendly and helpful and when the video player stopped working he came straight away and changed it. I highly recommend staying here and I hope to come back soon. Thank you
