About the property

E20530 Yellow Sands

Our Cottages are situated on a private driveway at Yellow Sands, Harlyn Bay - each is well maintained by the local proprietors and are open all year round! Set in a peaceful location, with each having parking for up to 2 cars and have their own outdoor lawn garden and outdoor patio/seating area. Fixtures and furnishings are of a high standard, with all electric appliances and are carefully/fully serviced by proprietors prior to arrival. Many guests return year after year - one couple have been visiting for 54 years, which is fantastic and we love to see our regular visitors and their families and next generations coming to stay, but we believe that our cottages at Harlyn Bay are an ideal base for visiting the whole of the County and are confident that we provide clean, comfortable and quality accommodation to any new guest with us. As proprietors we will be there to show you in and tell you about the local facilities etc. and are only too happy to answer any questions you may have and help in any way! We then leave it to you to have a happy holiday and enjoy the location, local restaurants, beaches, surf, walks etc. Tourist information leaflets are in the cottages and there are so many different ones to choose from for all ages. Padstow Tourist information is located in the 'Red Brick Building' in town and they have every kind of leaflet, local reference books etc. to offer you. The estuary at Padstow is a haven for water-sports, leisure boat trips, fishing trips or sealife/coastline boats. At Harlyn Bay there is the Surf School, with lessons for novice or advice for more advanced surfers. Surfing equipment can be hired locally, as can bicycles! Horse riding treks are closeby at St Merryn and Trevose Golf Club with its championship course is also just a mile away.

Fabulous home from home

  • 5 of 5

Spent a fabulous week in Lerryn Cottage. Really was home from home with everything you could need and a beautiful location. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we were warmly met by Sharon. The property also has good WiFi with quick Internet access which isn't clear from the description which was a definite plus. So good we'll be back again next year.
