Beach Cottages

The enormous crescent of sand that is Harlyn Bay in North Cornwall is an excellent family beach as it is safe for bathing, has a great team of lifeguards during the summer and there are a host of rock pools for your little ones to search for curious creatures in. It is also quite sheltered and has some gorgeous dunes in which to hide away when the wind blows or when you prefer a bit of privacy. There are regular good quality waves to be had so the surf school is a great way to get started if you’re a novice. This is a dreamy destination, not only because of its immediate natural assets, but also because of its proximity to so many great attractions, resorts and other sandy escapes nearby. Some of the more popular beaches within a short drive include Treyarnon, Constantine, Booby’s Bay and Trevone, all of which also offer great surfing opportunities.
