Ann's Cottage started life in 1978 as a small shop which was part of a petrol filling station in Polzeath.
Ann's Cottage started as a small shop which was part of a petrol filling station in Polzeath, selling and renting out boards and equipment to the early surfing pioneers, as well as providing beachwear to the holiday makers coming to enjoy the glorious beach and gentle waves of Polzeath. When the filling station shut down its pumps in the 90's Ann's Cottage Surf Shop was extended and became hugely popular. Now Ann's Cottage has branched out across Cornwall and has become one of the largest retailers of surf wear and accessories for men, women, girls, boys and toddlers in Cornwall. Above is a photograph courtesy of Francis Frith Photography of the original Anns Cottage Filling Station in the 1960's.
Ann's Cottage now has 11 surf shops around Cornwall. We take pride in having shops located near all the main surfing spots: Fistral, Polzeath & Bude, along with stores in popular towns such as Wadebridge, Padstow and Falmouth. We also have two stores in St Columb which includes our Clearance Warehouse and the Cornwall Surf Centre which is home to the largest collection of surf wear brands and stock. This is one of the biggest surf shops in the country, your one stop shop for all your surfing needs.
