About John Gardiner

St Clair is our much loved holiday home which was for a time our main house. We extended and modernised it in 2010 with our architect and commissioned a hand built kitchen. We grew to love the area so much that on retirement form Oxford we bought a property nearby but inland so that we could indulge our passion for gardening.

We visit frequently to check the property or to enjoy it with family and friends.

As it was our home the atmosphere and furnishings reflect our enthusiasm for both vintage and modern. We regard you as our guests and want you to feel welcome. We are available if there are problems or you need advice.

Our housekeeper is experienced and trusted and looks after our own home too.

John Gardiner purchased this house in 2005

Why John Gardiner chose North Cornwall

A house with a lovely garden within walking distance (with surf boards) of the beach. The sound of the surf and the view of the sea from the property and the road.

What makes this house unique

This is a sunny, welcoming house furnished with style, comfort and convenience in mind. There is Wifi.

When you arrive there is award winning Camel Valley wine in the fridge, flowers on the table and in the bedrooms. The fridge is stocked with butter and milk and tea and coffee are available. The kitchen is stocked with spices and basics. There are the popular St Kitts Herbery toiletries for every guest and the beds are made up. There are logs and kindling for a fire on chilly evenings.

We provide beach towels, body boards, beach cricket, buckets and spades.

The garden is warm and sheltered and provides a peaceful haven after a day on the beach.

Most of our guests return year after year.

St Claire New Polzeath Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We are actually still on holiday at St Claire. The house is in a perfect spot, 10 min walk to sea and within walking distance of some lovely restaurants, cafés and shops all on the beach front at Polzeath. St Claire has offered us everything we had hoped for in a family holiday; the owners have thought of everything in the house - it is beautifully furnished with wonderful gardens. We have brought our two

Labradors with us and the gardens have been perfect; fully enclosed and large enough to accommodate us all (8 adults) and dogs perfectly well.

If you are looking for a relaxed holiday in a lovely home near to the beach St Claire will offer you the perfect holiday residence.
