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.
Harlyn Bay is a compact, little village with only a handful of roads with holiday homes and private residences. There is a pub and surf shop off the main road, close to the beach.
It’s easiest to travel to Harlyn by car, although it is possible to take the train to Bodmin Parkway or fly to Newquay Airport and get a taxi from there. As well as Padstow and Wadebridge, popular day trips from Harlyn include Truro, St Ives, Port Isaac and Bude which are all great places to see while in Cornwall. If you want a bit of variety, there are plenty of beaches to explore in the area including Trevone and Constantine Bay.
Harlyn is a quiet holiday destination between Trevone and Constantine. There’s little to distract from the beauty of the scenery. However there is the Harlyn Inn pub, restaurant and shop close to the beach. There is also an excellent sandwich and fast food fan, which operates from the beach car park during the spring and summer months.
Holidaymakers who like to get active will appreciate the outdoor adventure opportunities in Harlyn. As well as walking on the South West Coast Path and sea swimming, there is a good surf school which offers surfing lessons for beginners.
