Where you’ll be

Harlyn, England, United Kingdom

The location, near to the hubbub of busy harbour at PADSTOW (3 km), yet set apart down the coast road a short way.. HARLYN BAY is a stunning horseshoe shape, wide stretch of soft sandy beach.. There is a large beach carpark which is free in the evenings for parking up and taking in the views of the bay and the Sunsets! Harlyn is a safer beach for swimming and surfing as it is protected from strong currents by the Trevose Headland (National Trust). There is a great surf/paddleboard school at the beach. The Harlyn Pub is a good place to land up later in the day for drinks and food..(before redevelopment).
Harlyn Bay is beautifully located along the South West Coast Path - this stretch from Padstow to Bedruthan Steps is truly stunning with a string of sandy beaches, coastal scenery for miles around. Trevose Head has the boathouse for the Padstow RNLI -Lifeboat (open to visit) and also the now automated Lighthouse. The Trevose golf links course at Constantine has an amazing setting.
Local amenities at the village of St Merryn are pretty great! The only problem in main season is timing it right as busy up there. But a garage/fuel, grocery, bakery, newsagents with alsorts, bistros, pubs, great Chinese takeaway too.
At Padstow there is much on offer for visitors. Sea/estuary trips from the harbour, crazy golf, Camel River cycle trail to Wadebridge and Bodmin. Restaurants, pubs, shopping, etc.
Further afield - Cornwall is a fascinating place to explore and all areas are within reach for days out. However, not recommended to necessarily be doing that as and when weather dictates (ie off day) as roads can get tailbacks! The area around Trevose can often be something of a microclimate and if not good in the morning can change soon enough..?! Lots going on and recommendations to suit most.

(please note that the automated Review (not by the guest himself) was my first 'instant' booking on AirBnb which I unfortunately had to cancel, in agreement with the potential guest, after some discussion - as the instant booking system priced the week in August at the lowest overall rate, which was unacceptable to me. We decided it was best to cancel in order to start afresh, as it was his first booking attempt on AirBnb also (he received his full deposit back). This review appears to have affected my introduction to the site, which is a pity. I am a local resident in mid Cornwall.. but grew up with my family in Harlyn Bay where our holiday accommodation is located. My son and I look after our properties together over the summer months, whilst he is home from University. We are fairly new to online booking.. I am quite 'old school' and prefer booking with guests more direct - and so "Instant Booking" is scary ..especially when I have had first guests trying to book at low season prices..?! However, we must live and learn and I really hope AIRBnB works for holiday bookings and especially more out of main season hols/breaks - as Cornwall seems more 'out on a limb' to the rest of the country (usually at least a 3 hour journey to reach us) - More guests considering Cornwall during May, June and Sept, Oct - when they are missing a treat with the opportunity of venturing around the county much more easily and enjoyably than during peak season crush. :)
