    “Rockpool is lovely property and only 3 minutes walk to Harlyn Bay and it’s beautiful beach.”

    The property is extremely lovely to stay in and only a couple of miles from Padstow and other lovely beaches. The owner has thought of everything for comfort in this well equipped cottage. We look forward to staying here again.

The property

Perfectly located for beach and coastal walking holidays, this family-friendly terraced cottage of Rockpool is situated in Harlyn near St Merryn, a short and level walk from Harlyn Bay beach, a wide and spacious sandy beach that is considered one of the finest in Cornwall.

Tucked away on the eastern side of Trevose Head the cottage is located just west of Padstow which is 2.8 miles by road and even closer along the South Western Coastal Path or footpaths.

The cottage has been furnished with style in mind, which you will notice as you enter the sitting room, a space sporting sleek furnishings throughout, including velvet sofas, as well as charming coastal touches; sink into one of the sofas and enjoy a family-favourite DVD on the TV.

Nearby rests the fabulous conservatory, where wicker seating allows you to soak up the natural light as you unwind with your favourite beverage.

When you’re feeling peckish, continue to the brand new kitchen/diner, a space enjoying sleek, white units with a range of newly integrated appliances, such as a built-in microwave!

Once the designated chef of the group has whipped up a culinary delight here, enjoy it at the six-seater dining table as you catch up on the day’s adventures.

Head upstairs to find three well-appointed bedrooms, two of which are doubles that enjoy blue hues and ample storage throughout, and the latter room offering a bunk bed; ideal for kids!

The contemporary bathroom is nearby and enjoys sleek tiling throughout, as well as a bath with an overhead shower.

The property also boasts its own enclosed garden, where you fix up grilled delights on the barbecue for all to enjoy at the picnic bench.

When it comes to dining out you have a wide choice to suit everyone, including the friendly pubs of The Well Parc Hotel and The Doghouse; there is also a beach shop here for all your beach requirements as well as surf hire and surf school facilities.

Just a mile away is the village of St Merryn, which is home to Rick Stein's pub, The Cornish Arms offering classic seafood as well as pub food classics.

Padstow also isn’t far and offers plenty to do, including catching the ferry to Rock, touring the fascinating National Lobster Hatchery, and visiting the iconic manor of Prideaux Place.

With a variety of beaches and beautiful bays close by, either by the stunning coastal path or a short drive there will always be so many places to enjoy and explore.

Rockpool is a delightful cottage in a great location to be enjoyed all-year-round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Padstow 2.5 miles, Constantine 2 miles; Polzeath 15 miles.

Harlyn is a charming little village, with a large crescent shaped sandy beach, safe for swimming, surfing and dog friendly all year round. Harlyn Bay is considered to be one of the best family beaches in Cornwall with a north-facing shore, beckoning surfers to brave the white waves that surge towards golden sands. Connected to the South West Coastal Path and part of the 'Seven Bays for Seven Days' area this is also an ideal location for walkers to explore the beautiful Cornish countryside. Constantine Bay just two miles away offers golf at the Trevose Championship course. Nearby Padstow lies at the head of the Camel Trail along the Camel Estuary and local cycle hire shops enable visitors to enjoy the area easily. Padstow is a delightful fishing port offering ample opportunity to taste locally sourced produce, as well as the award-winning Camel Valley wines, in celebrity owned establishments. Local fisherman's boats offer coastal tours and sea fishing trips, while a passenger ferry takes you across the estuary to Rock with the windsurfing beach of Daymer Bay and golf at the famous St Enedoc course. Just around the corner toward Pentire Head is the surfing paradise at Polzeath, and when the beach no longer calls there are several stately homes and gardens to visit as well as special events at the Cornish County Showground.

Please note this property can only sleep 6 including infants - thank you.
