Great Base for Beach Holidays

Harlyn Beach in Cornwall

Holidaymakers on the beach at Harlyn Bay in North Cornwall.

Heavenly Harlyn is a fantastic place to visit whether for a day or a week or two. This small beachside village is located on the North Cornwall coast, just a few miles outside Padstow. The main draw is the beautiful beach with its golden sand, blue sea and rugged shoreline. As a north facing beach, Harlyn is relatively protected from the big south westerly swells and winds making it an idyllic haven on a warm summer’s day and a fantastic base for a holiday.

To stock up on food and supplies, visitors only need to travel to nearby St Merryn where there are a couple of shops, as well as restaurants, pubs and  a fish and chip shop. The next biggest place is Padstow where there is a Tesco supermarket, plus numerous options for dining out. See our Padstow guide. The market town of Wadebridge is also only a short drive away.

This all makes Harlyn a wonderful base for a Cornish family holiday. But our holiday rentals are also popular with small groups and couples who want to escape to the coast for a well-earned break.
