Views to take your breath away? A flickering fire pit? Sublime sunsets? Interiors to die for? Welcome to Carn Mar. A unique escape like no other, Carn Mar is a luxury coastal retreat perched right above Polzeath beach. We could spend all day talking about reasons to stay at Carn Mar but Katy Austin at Latitude50 has managed to condense it down to just 10…
Interiors to die for
The living spaces are as varied as they are sublime. Most striking is the breathtaking outline of an architect-designed staircase, which sweeps up to the top floor. A statement double glass-fronted log burner sits between the lounge and dining area, creating a warm atmosphere.
Views to take your breath away
Carn Mar enjoys a dreamy backdrop of sea and sand from almost every vantage point in the house. Whether you’re dolphin spotting from the telescope in the reading room or lazing on the balcony, the view is bound to take your breath away time and time again.
Endless outdoor spaces
A softly manicured infinity lawn melts its way into the ocean beyond. Colourful blooms and tropical succulents spill over the beautifully landscaped flower beds. To the back, you’ll find the sheltered morning terrace – an oasis of calm on windier days.
Polzeath sunsets are legendary and Carn Mar provides a front row seat. Enjoy the peaceful hour before the sun dips below the water and nightfall sets in. Sit back, relax and take in the beautiful combination of red, pink, purple and golden hues as they reflect off the water.
Doorstep to sand
The wooden gate at the bottom of the garden leads straight onto the South West Coast Path, making beach access a breeze. With some of the country’s most spectacular coastal walks right on your doorstep, you won’t be short of places to discover and explore.
Hostess with the mostest
Sleeping 14, Carn Mar provides an unforgettable home to host a special occasion. Whether it’s a birthday celebration or a catch up with friends, Carn Mar will provide a breathtaking backdrop. Enjoy feasts beside the fire and frolics beside the sea at this dazzling coastal haven.
Fabulous for festivities
Enjoy a festive tipple on the beach, artisan cocktails on the balcony and a sumptuous feast beside the fire. As the sun goes down gather around the crackling fire pit sharing tales of the year gone by, light the sparklers as night falls and steal a midnight kiss under the stars.
Polzeath is renowned for its fantastic surf conditions and collection of high-quality surf schools. At Carn Mar all you need to do is look out of the window to assess the conditions, making it the ideal base for enjoying time amongst the white rollers of Polzeath.
Blissful bedrooms and bathrooms
Who needs a spa? With six tranquil bedrooms, almost all benefitting from panoramic views, there will be sweet dreams all round. Enjoy a luxurious bubble bath in the fabulously chunky freestanding bathtub then open up the curtains to the beach and fall asleep under the stars.
