One of the best-known beach houses on the Atlantic coast, with superb panoramic views of the ocean, Pentire Head, and the beach.


Built in the 1950s, Rigi is the archetypal seaside bungalow: white rendered concrete block construction and tiled roof, with decorative Cornish slate detail around the main entrance. It splays either side of a central living room where a ten bayed window allows the sweeping view to be the true centrepiece.

Enter the bungalow through a wide porch which, in effect, is a southwest facing sun lounge, with windows lending light to the interior hall. To the right is the kitchen, which is fully fitted, has an electric hob and oven, and additional storage with a large built-in cupboard and a pantry. With windows to east and west this room benefits from morning and evening light and has a great view across the beach and the village – a captivating distraction from sink-based tasks. Through a small hall a glazed door opens onto the front beach facing garden. This wing is completed by a spacious principal bedroom, with patio doors to the garden. The en suite wet room, adjoining this bedroom, is fully tiled and spacious.

On the other side of the kitchen the hall opens to the open plan dining room and living area, where the attention is always drawn to the expanse of the beautiful view beyond. A family sized dining table and wide sofas provide the perfect setting for enjoying this space.

Adjoining is the second bedroom, another double, with a large, fitted wardrobe and superb view of Pentire and the ocean.
Next is the family bathroom with a sunken bath, a wide shower and heated towel rail. Finally, the largest bedroom accommodates bunk beds as well as a large double and being dual aspect, has a magnificent outlook.

The décor throughout, is simple, with clean, modern lines, pale colours and suitably practical fittings for a holiday rental. The interior is bright with natural light from wide double-glazed windows. All rooms have electric Rointe digital radiators and the hall has fitted floor to ceiling storage.

The utility/laundry room, accessed outside beside the sunroom entrance, is fully tiled. Alongside are two simple, single garages with up and over doors.

The fenced, lawned garden wraps around the front of the property with a gate opening directly onto the footpath and a short cut onto the beach. The village, with its shops and restaurants is reached in a couple of minutes along the path from Tristram. The drive to Rigi is being diverted and newly built along an existing access road. It will be private beyond a new gated entrance, and eventually protected by a Cornish hedge (securely fenced while the hedge is being made).


Rigi will be instantly recognisable to all who love Polzeath, as the bungalow that features in countless postcards and photos of their favourite beach.

From its commanding location on Tristram cliff, Rigi has an unbeatable, panoramic view: from the great expanse of the ocean constantly rolling into the bay, over to majestic Pentire Head, across the fine sandy beaches of Baby Bay and Hayle Bay to the village, Polzeath, in its beautiful, natural entirety, is on show.

Beloved by generations of residents and visitors, Polzeath is one of Britain’s foremost beach holiday destinations: many would say the best!

Square Footage: 2,170 sq ft


From the B3314, (Wadebridge to Port Isaac), take the turn to Polzeath and follow down to the village, past the beach car park and around the first corner as the road ascends a steep hill, take the first turn on the right. Follow this private road until its end, where a gate opens into Rigi’s grounds, newly partitioned.

N.B. Work is being undertaken on the above and while this is ongoing visitors wishing to view Rigi should enter the second turning on the hill, into Tristram car park. You may park beside the campsite gate on the right (before the car park barrier) to be met at the gate and escorted down to the house (Savills will give you the phone number of the viewing agent).
