Framed by a stone archway and illuminated by huge windows overlooking Harlyn Bay, the living area is a dream for drawn-out moments savouring ocean aspects. Gorgeous in every way, its neutral tones, natural textures, and coastal-inspired décor combine to create a spellbinding space, while its cosy, L-shaped corner sofa, armchairs, cushions, and throws imbue comfort throughout the year. For added hygge, throw open the windows in summer and enjoy a refreshing sea breeze on balmy days as you recline on the sofa. Meanwhile in winter, relish the addition of a delightful wood burning stove to add even more atmosphere for movie nights at home.


Tempting for aromatic meals, the attractive kitchen has everything you need for divine repasts with a cream Aga, double oven, American style fridge-freezer with ice machine, and varied accoutrements. Showcasing open shelves and a stainless steel splashback, it complements its modern styling with eye-catching features and natural inflections. Cast your eye around the room, before landing your gaze on the wood-topped kitchen island in the centre of the room. Beckoning for slow morning coffees and evening tipples, it is a perfect social hub complete with stow-away kitchen stools. Just off the kitchen, the adjoining dining room features a grand Welsh dresser, with a trestle-style dining table and leather bonquette seating for meals together. Bathed in neutral tones and infused with slate grey tones, its soothing palette mirrors the colours of the soft sands and bare cliffs beyond the window.

Sleeping & Bathing

Sleeping eight, there are four stunning bedrooms at Harlyn Beach House, all of which delicately reflect the coastal hues and ocean blues of its surrounding.

The first bedroom, located on the ground floor, features a sumptuous king-sized bed draped in a lush green throw and matching cushions. With cream cladding and soothing tones, a vintage dressing table and vintage wooden armchairs, it exudes elegant style and a restful ambience. For total comfort, it also has its own ensuite bathroom with a deep bath perfect for long soaks with a sea view.

The second bedroom, also on the ground floor, presents a super king-sized zip-and-link bed with sea-blue blankets and cushions. Boasting stunning views of the Atlantic surf, it's a dreamy space that calls for leisurely mornings with breakfast in bed and nights of blissful slumber. This bedroom comes complete with garden views and its own en suite bathroom with a large, walk-in digital shower.

Heading upstairs, a third bedroom with twin beds proffers a tranquil resting spot. Especially perfect for the little ones, it has two full-size single beds dressed in the finest linens and draped in blankets and cushions. Granting an almost panoramic view of the bay, this room has a large window that runs the length of its exterior wall, overlooking twinkling sea and undulating coast.

Also on the first floor, the final bedroom is decorated in soft tones of grey, blue and white and promises soothing oceanside slumbers in a king-sized bed. Benefitting from lots of natural light, this peaceful bedroom enjoys generous windows framing fields that meet with grass-tufted dunes and the sea beyond.

On the ground floor, you'll find an 'off the beach' ready shower room with digital shower and a cloakroom with an additional WC.

Outside space

A wonderful jewel on the North Cornish coast, Harlyn Beach House has the privilege of both a large, enclosed garden and direct access to the beach. With plenty of space for relaxation and play, its lawned grounds tempt for playtime with children and four-legged friends, while easy beach access via a private footpath ensures blissful shoreside moments for all generations. For alfresco dining at home, savour mealtimes on the raised decking area where a BBQ, table and chairs all reside, facing the garden and ocean beyond. Or for picnics by the sea, bundle up a hamper of all your favourite treats and walk a few yards down to Harlyn Bay to soak up the jaw-dropping setting.


One well behaved dog is welcome at Harlyn Beach House. Please note, there is an additional fee, per week or short break. This property is only able to accommodate one dog, and would be unable to welcome any additional dogs.

Superbly placed for exploring all that the Cornish coast has to offer, or simply staying close and savouring your own pocket of paradise, Harlyn Beach House has it all. Right on your doorstep, a private pathway leads down to Harlyn Bay, a large, golden sand beach sheltered by Trevose Head. Dog-friendly year-round and lifeguarded in summer, it welcomes all generations of salt-tousled beachgoers to relax on its gently sloping shores. For more doses of vitamin sea, the North Coast's 'seven bays for seven days' are all within easy reach too, offering a week-long agenda of heavenly beach bathing. A gorgeous harbour town famed for its award-winning eateries and family-friendly attractions, Padstow is next on the list. A Michelin hotspot, it's home to the Michelin star Paul Ainsworth No.6., Michelin Bib Gourmand Rick Stein's Café, and Michelin-recommended Prawn on the Lawn, Stein's Seafood Restaurant, and Caffè Rojano. In nearby Port Isaac, two more Michelin star delights await in the form of Outlaw's Fish Kitchen and Outlaw's New Road, so you'll never be short of fine dining establishments to sample the tastiest local produce. To work up your appetite beforehand, take a cruise from the harbour for a whole new perspective of the coast or hop on the ferry from Padstow to Rock, ready to tread its polished streets.

Uncover a gorgeous retreat for eight, boasting far-reaching sea views above Harlyn Bay, with a private path leading down to the beach.

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:

A stunning location and a really lovely house with everything we needed and lots of thoughtful touches. The owner was very kind and attentive, and we were delighted with our stay.

Location location location! Use any of my above comments as you see fit.

Lovely, comfortable home with stunning sea views and the perfect location for access to Harlyn Bay beach. Well suited for two couples with (or without!) kids. Great base for exploring the Seven Bays area or just relaxing on the deck and enjoying the view. Very secure enclosed garden for the dog too.

This is the nicest house in Harlyn. It feels like home the moment you arrive. The walk to the beach across an open field is a daily delight and this leads to a small cove on the sand which is just perfect. The house is very comfortable and well-equipped, linen and furnishings of a high standard. Everything works well and the house is presented on arrival in amazing condition. The owner of the house is immediately on hand should there be queries or issues (they're never are!) and the ability to bring a dog is most welcome. We have been with our family six times and having just returned from a week in Harlyn are about are about to book our seventh stay. Go There, you will love it.

A beautiful house with stunning views and great location. Everything that we could have needed was catered for.

Harlyn beach house is at a perfect location with wonderful views and access to a beautiful sandy beach. It is idyllic! Mark the owner was very helpful when needed.

Wonderful! Hoping to return

Beautiful house, amazing views. Beds and sofas very comfortable. But bring eye masks or be woken by the sun coming up.

An absolutely beautiful beach house. The location is unbeatable and to be able to enjoy a short walk across a field and a swim in the sea before breakfast is very special. We loved the relaxed and cosy vibe of the house and it was extremely well equipped. Mark was on hand for a few questions and very helpful.

An amazing property with fantastic views. Well recommended.

Happy Days at Harlyn Beach House - unbeatable location and views.

Best equipped kitchen ever. Games room was inspirational and nice to have things to borrow. Really is near the beach.

It fulfilled our expectations in every aspect. Lovely to have contact from Mark the owner.

Excellent location and stunning views. Beautiful well equipped seaside home! We cannot wait to return.

A wonderful house in afantastic location,so dog friendly.

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.
