For the perfect holiday come to North Cornwall. Sixty miles of dramatic Heritage Coastline, sandy beaches, hidden coves and pretty fishing villages, wooded river valleys, bustling market towns and beautiful Bodmin Moor.

Local attractions include the world famous Eden Project, stunning country houses, medieval castles and many areas to explore including King Arthur's Tintagel, Port Isaac, The Tate at St Ives and the fabulous Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The working fishing port of Padstow is ten minutes drive away, famous for Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant , cookery school and deli. Newquay is twenty minutes drive away with airport, train station and Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant.

The climate in Cornwall is very mild for most of the year.


Harlyn Bay is a beautiful sweep of golden sand sheltered by Trevose head with its dramatic cliffs, it also offers good swimming and surfing as well as catering for everyone from toddlers to anglers and cliff walkers. There are four other beautiful beaches close by within five minutes drive. Harlyn Bay was voted second in the Sunday Times UK's Best Beaches awards with nearby Treyarnon coming in third.

The quaint port of Padstow is 10 minutes drive away, with Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant, cookery school and deli. From the harbour it is possible to take boat trips as well as the ferry across to Rock. The Camel Trail, which winds around the estuary to Wadebridge on the track bed of the old railway line, is ideal for walking or cycling. Excellent bike hire is available for all the family at either Padstow or Wadebridge.

St Merryn is the nearest village, about 2 minutes drive from the house with a Post Office, grocery shops, fish and chip shop, gourmet restaurants, and garage. There is also a large Tesco store close to Padstow, which is approximately ten minutes drive away.

Within a five minute drive there are the equally impressive beaches of Trevone, Constantine, Treyarnon and Porthchothan and the Championship Links Golf Course of Trevose.

Seasonal attractions include the famous "obby oss" procession in Padstow on May 1st to celebrate the arrival of summer, Christmas in Padstow is also special with all of the boats in the harbour decorated with lights.

In all an ideal place for all the family or a romantic week for couples.

The house is in a lovely location near the beach, which is perfect for surfing and dog walking. Inside is well laid out with an open plan feel down stairs and a changing room next to the house for all my wet gear and surfing equipment.

This is our third visit and we will be returning in 2013

"A real home from home!"

The cottage is compact but incredibly well equipped and the beach could hardly be closer. Hope to be back again soon!
