Living and dining

With every detail lovingly and carefully considered, the timelessly elegant interiors of Polvarth Point offer plenty of space to relax in style. Stepping through its flower-framed façade and rose colonnades you'll find a refreshingly light-filled interior with large windows that make the most of endless sea views. In the living area, two Long Island sofas gather around a glass-top Manhattan console table by Neptune, while two comfortable armchairs are perfectly positioned to admire the boats in the distance. For entertainment, a Sonos sound system and Sky TV are provided, perfect for cosy nights besides the open fireplace. Additionally, there is an adjoining dining area with an extendable Suffolk dining table with six chairs.


The kitchen at Polvarth, illuminated by a large garden-view window, has a sociable atmosphere with a peninsula offering plentiful meal preparation space and four bar stools to admire the chef at work. Polvarth Point is fully equipped with everything you should need during your staycation, including an AGA oven, a coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine, a tumble dryer, and even a Quooker boiling water tap.

Sleeping and bathing

There are four gorgeous bedrooms to choose from at Polvarth Point, each with their own ensuite.

'The Lookout' - The master bedroom boasts a striking balcony with tranquil views over the sea. With a king-size bed draped with ultra-soft Neptune linens, a pretty headboard adorned with floral fabrics, an armchair, and two bedside tables, this calm room is a wonderful space to admire the gentle lap of waves below you. The opulent ensuite in traditional tones and soft grey tiling is complete with an elegant bathtub, walk-in shower, and a wash basin.

'The Sea View' - The second bedroom with pretty patterned wallpaper and stunning sea views is dressed in cream, navy, and red tones. This bedroom has a zip-and-link super king-sized bed which can be split into twins for flexible sleeping. There is also has a writing desk, chair, a double armoire, and bedside tables. The en suite with plantation shutters has a spacious bathtub.

'The Garden View' - The third bedroom is dressed in blue shades that nod to the retreat's coastal position. You'll find a zip and link super king-sized bed which can be split into twins, an occasional chair, writing desk, two bedside tables, and a large double wardrobe, providing plenty of storage for your belongings. The chic en suite is complete with a walk-in shower.

'The Sail Locker' - The fourth and final bedroom with sailing boat wallpaper is complete with a double bed and intricately detailed bedside tables. The ensuite with an open doorway has a large walk-in shower.

You will find an additional loo downstairs with a separate sink.

All beds are made up with the finest linens, cloud-soft bedding and opulent cushions and throws, to ensure a wonderful night's sleep, while all bathrooms at Polvarth Point have heated rails.

The owner of Polvarth Point kindly provides bathrobes and swimming towels for use during your stay.

Outdoor space

Polvarth's gorgeous gardens are a wonderful space to relax, whether you're waking early to enjoy a beautiful sunrise or looking to spend your evenings stargazing.

You'll find plenty of space for everyone throughout the gardens, including an outdoor sofa with matching chairs, a dining table for eight on the lawn, and several benches dotted amongst the flowers. There are also two loungers perfect for reclining with a glass in hand.

For those looking for a moment's peace, you'll also find a summerhouse tucked away in the corner. With two gorgeous wicker armchairs, a coffee table, and a delightful writing desk, this is a lovely quiet spot for reading a newspaper or perhaps writing a novel! Beside the summer house, there is an additional dining table for four.

Polvarth Point also has a barbeque for use in the summer months.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Polvarth Point:

The place is stunning inside and out, amazing views and great location. We would definitely go back again.

We absolutely loved every minute of our time at Polvarth Point, the house was incredibly well set out and finished to an incredibly high standard. There are views of the estuary from most of the rooms, you could lose hours just watching. We loved the short walk into the village for pastries in the mornings and for drinks in the evenings. A really memorable week.

The interior of the house was stunning, so beautiful, comfortable and full of thoughtful touches. Every need had been thought of which made for a very relaxing stay. The views were mesmerising and the location incredible - we would highly recommend Polvarth Point.
