A firm favourite, Daymer Bay is enjoyed by generations of families who flock to this sheltered sandy beach located just inside the mouth of the Camel Estuary. The area around the beach is known as Trebetherick and its unspoilt and relatively underdeveloped nature, means that houses for sale in this highly desirable location are scarce. Property tends to be larger, exclusive detached residences set on generous plots providing good privacy and easy access to Daymer or Greenaway beaches. The development immediately surrounding St Moritz villas and apartments, and Highcliffe along with a broader variety of properties at the top of the hill, provide more accessible opportunities with fewer properties coming to market as you move closer towards the beach.
The civil parish of St Minver is divided into St Minver Highlands (to the north and east) and St Minver Lowlands (to the west). The combined parish is bounded on the south and west by the estuary of the River Camel, on the north by the Atlantic coast, and on the east by the parishes of St Endellion and St Kew. The principal villages in St Minver Lowlands are Rock, Trebetherick and Polzeath, while St Minver Highlands encompasses the main villages of St Minver, Tredrizzick, part of Polzeath and New Polzeath. Both parishes benefit from a Neigbourhood Development Plan that serves to enable both a desirable second home market to flourish, whilst also preserving the balance of a vibrant main residence community.
