Things to Do
There are three beaches within walking distance of Fourgeese.
Daymer Bay, situated to the west of Fourgeese, is a family beach, shelving gently with safe swimming and plenty of rock pools. Windsurfing is popular here.
Hayle Bay in Polzeath is just what the youngsters love – full of life and a surfer’s paradise. There are plenty of wetsuits and surfboards to hire on the beach and it is regularly patrolled by life guards.
Greenaway Beach (pronounced Grennaway) is accessed by footpath on the opposite side of the road from the cottage. It is a shingle beach with amazing rock pools and fabulous views from the beach path.
Wadebridge is the closest large town with several supermarkets as well as some specialist shops selling local crafts. Rock is very useful for your everyday items with delicatessen, fishmonger, butcher and petrol station. Look out too for the farm shop on the way to Rock selling fresh vegetables and providing logs for the fire in winter.
Polzeath caters for the surfer crowd with trendy surf shops as well as an intriguing little puzzle shop tucked away behind the beach.
Trebetherick itself has a post office and stores just at the end of the cottage drive – very handy for last minute items.
Pubs and Restaurants
Trebetherick’s two pubs, Carters and the Oyster Catcher are lively and popular and both offer good pub food all day.
The Salt Water Café in Polzeath is excellent and is close enough to walk to in the evenings. Finns restaurant in Polzeath is also popular.
Further afield, the Last Resort in Rock, the Maltsters in Chapel Amble, St Kew Inn in St Kew and the Cornish Arms in Pendoggett all offer good hearty food and drink.
