In Harlyn Bay
We’re just 2 minutes walk from Harlyn Bay Beach, one of the best family beaches in Cornwall, with great water quality and summer lifeguard cover. It’s also an excellent place to learn to surf, and has one of the best surf schools in North Cornwall. There are another 6 other beaches within 3.5 miles.
Harlyn is excellent for surfing, with its shallow incline and northward direction. There are plenty of surf schools; but Harlyn Surf School has been consistently acclaimed by leading reviews, including The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian and Time Out.
The North Coast offers many other watersports opportunities – we are close to all the main centres. Newquay, regarded as Europe’s surfing capital, is only 12 miles down the coast. Once you’ve learnt the basics it’s well worth a day at Fistral Beach, home to many international championships including Boardmasters. Watergate Bay’s Extreme Academy also offers Kiteboarding, Waveski and Hand-planing,
Close to Padstow
Take a trip into Padstow; always worth a visit with its narrow cobbled streets and many shops. It also offers a great choice of bistros and restaurants including Rick Stein’s. For the more active there is the Camel Trail one of the country’s most popular cycle trails or take a speedboat ride or fishing trip from the harbour. Nestled on the banks of the Camel Estuary, its narrow shopping streets and fishing harbour make Padstow one of the only sheltered spots on the otherwise rugged North Coast. While best known for seafood chef Rick Stein this stretch of the North Coast has become Cornwall’s gastronomic capital, alongside our own favourites. Padstow is 2.5 miles from our cottages.
