With some great beaches on our doorstep, The Olde House is a great spot for budding surfers.

During school holidays and half-term breaks, we run The Olde House Surf Club in partnership with Wavehunters Surf Academy on Polzeath Beach.

A safe beach with good surf, Polzeath is perfect for location for surf lessons in Cornwall.

The Wavehunters Kids Club runs every morning in the school holidays at 10am and 2pm and is specially designed for getting kids into the water, with other children, in a friendly, safe, and relaxed atmosphere.

Underneath the core principle of learning to surf we integrate surf lifesaving and team games. Children need to be 6 years or older to surf without an adult accompanying them in the water. It is advisable that someone is on the beach or close by just in case it gets a bit too chilly.

Children are able to participate in both morning and afternoon sessions and remain under the watchful eye of their instructors during lunchtime.

The lessons are £30 a session and block booking discounts are available. Places for the sessions can be booked by phoning the Wavehunters office (01208 880 617) or the beach mobile (07969 660014) and giving your name, cottage and that you are staying at The Olde House to receive our 10% discount.
