Guest book

Nestled on the beautiful coastline of Harlyn Bay, this retreat boasts an enviable location and is just a short stroll from the beach. Sandy toes make their weary way back to a welcoming home - walk through the door and you'll find a relaxed pad, perfect for catching up with each other whilst gazing at the truly commanding sea views - seen from all but one room.

Special lower occupancy rate

A special lower occupancy rate applies outside of school holidays, peak weeks, bank holidays, Christmas and New Year. At Harlyn Beach House, the discount for four guests and under is 20%. At this rate, bedrooms one and two will be available for you, but bedrooms three and four will be excluded. Please call the office on 01872 553491 to book.


With huge windows overlooking stunning Harlyn Bay, the living area certainly makes the most of its views. Gorgeously comfy L-shaped corner sofa, wood burning stove, cushions and throws make this room super cosy in winter. Throw open the windows and you'll get the cool sea breezes through on warm days. A fab telescope set up by the window means you can watch the surf and skies, and maybe spot a dolphin or two.


The cute kitchen has everything you need to rustle up a meal or two for your brood, and with an Aga, huge oven and American style fridge-freezer, feeding hungry tummies shouldn't be a problem. We love the wood-topped island for extra space, and stools tucked underneath if you want company whilst cooking. The dining room, just off the kitchen, has a great trestle-style dining table and pretty Welsh dresser, as well as that fabulous view.


Sleeping eight, there are four simple-yet-ship-shape bedrooms at Harlyn Beach House. Bedrooms one and two are king size ensuite bedrooms and are both found downstairs, whilst upstairs you'll find bedroom three which is a king and bedroom four which is a twin. Decorated in cool, muted tones of grey, blue and white, you'll fall asleep with the sound of the surf in your ears.


On the ground floor you'll find a shower room and a cloakroom with additional toilet. The two bedrooms on the ground floor are en suite, one with a large, deep bath (perfect for long soaks) and the other with a large walk in digital shower.

Outside space

Outside is a gorgeous, fully enclosed private lawned garden with bags of space for little ones and doggies, and of course the fantastic private footpath just for you which meanders down to the beach. There's also a raised decking area with table and chairs to make the most of the views and to indulge in a little al fresco dining.


Harlyn Beach House has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


There is private parking outside.


One well behaved dog is welcome at Harlyn Beach House. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.

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

Perfect location with great access to a lovely beach. Very comfortable house with beautiful views an ideal family stay.

Just returned from a lovely sunny November week at this well equipped and comfortable home. Great to be so close to the beach and can highly recommend Padstow out of season - we will return!

It's wonderful, simply marvellous. Just go there!

Just about perfect - roomy beautifullly decorated interior, sea views, tranquility, access to fabulous large golden Sandy beach and coastal paths Who could ask for more?

Loved it and booked for again for next year.

Excellent location being a short walk to the beach, beautiful view of the sea. The interior downstairs exceeded our expectations and it was a very comfortable stay. Would definitely visit again.

Unbeatable location!

It is a wonderful house, very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. The no.1 asset, though is the brilliant location; the view is magnificent and un-impeded and a three-minute walk to the beach (ie: no parking needed!) is unbeatable! We have been there as a family four times now and would hope to continue.
