Everything you need for a cosy get away to Cornwall. Near the beach and family friendly pub and only a short run in to lovely Padstow. We were blessed with some lovely spring sunshine and enjoyed some fun days on the beach. The apartment itself...More

We first stayed at Sanderlings in 2008, have returned every year, and I have just booked for 2016. Harlyn Bay is beautiful, and is ideal for beach combing, rock pooling, surfing, swimming, SUP and coasteering. If you want amusement arcades and kids' clubs, then it's...More

About the neighborhood
There are seven fabulous beaches in the area, some have huge stretches of golden sand and some are facinating rocky coves with deep and intruiging rockpools begging to be explored. On the cliff top there is mile upon mile of breathtaking coastal walks and scenery. The coastal path is literally 5 minutes walk away from the apartment and the views are truly amazing. The path is well maintained with some stiles, but not taxing as it meanders along the cliff top, each twist and turn revealing yet another delight. Sturdy footwer advised.


The apartment is within easy walking distance( 5 minutes) of an excellent pub which caters for all the family, with an extensive menu and nightly carvery. The Harlyn Inn also offers free Wi-fi, so you can catch up with friends, family and...

Links to the West Country are excellent these days and this area of North Cornwall is easily accessible by road, just 1 1/2 hours from Exeter, or by rail to Bodmin and then taxi or bus to the coast.

It is definitely preferable to have a car, as the tourist attractions, such as the Eden Project & Lands End to mention just two, plus the mile after mile of magnificent coastline and beaches are not to be missed.
