Whether it’s a family holiday or an escape with friends, there’s something for everyone at The Point.
Words by Rosie Cattrell
What do you imagine when you consider your dream Cornish escape? Breath-taking walks along shining Cornish coastlines? Invigorating outdoor activities like tennis, swimming or golf? Beautifully cooked food to make the mouth water? A cosy bolthole to call home for the time being? With all of this on offer and more, this is a place famed for being the perfect base from which to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.
Born out of the remnants of a golf and country club, what is now known as The Point has since bloomed into a family-run business with a reputation for high-quality, friendly service and a holiday experience that certainly won’t be forgotten in a hurry. Having acquired a rather sorry-looking clubhouse, health club and golf course in 2011, over the last ten years Eva and Jeremy Davies, along with a dedicated team, have since turned The Point into a truly incredible destination. Now with an award-winning 18-hole golf course offering views over Pentire Point in north Cornwall, a refreshed clubhouse and health club, here is a place to call home for the week while you immerse yourself in the perfect Cornish holiday.
With the understanding that precious memories will be made here with friends and family, the atmosphere at The Point is all about inclusivity, making sure that there is something for everyone to delight in. With a swimming pool, tennis and padel courts, a gym and the stunningly scenic golf course, boredom simply doesn’t exist here. The Bear Bar offers the perfect spot for a post-game beverage, or a sundowner with friends and family after a day of fun. With team members who have been with the company since its beginning, despite staff resource challenges which has been a struggle within the hospitality industry this year, you’re sure to come across some familiar and friendly faces on your return, as many of the guests do!
When it comes to accommodation, you are spoilt for choice at The Point Holidays. From stunning holiday homes in the nearby popular areas of Rock, Polzeath and Daymer Bay, to cosy cottages and stunning apartments within The Point village.

Leading the expansion of The Point Holidays with a continued drive to provide outstanding customer service, and with a self-catering team at its finest that all live and work in north Cornwall with a shared passion for the local area, Tom O’Donnell, Managing Director at The Point, brings years of experience and local knowledge. The Point Holidays, headed up by Jess Holman, has already attracted several new properties in Polzeath, Daymer Bay, and Rock, whose owners favour using a well-established local agency to look after their property. “We’ve seen a steady growth over the last 12 months since developing The Point Holidays,” explains Jess. “The support we’ve received from the local community, and holiday home owners has been amazing.”

We expect the popularity of staycations in Cornwall to continue, so are delighted to expand our collection of quality holiday homes into the neighbouring villages of Rock, Polzeath and Trebetherick.
