Polmark Beach Cottages are fantastic. A great location only 2mins walk from one of the nicest beaches in Cornwall. The cottages are well laid out and equipped with everything you need and the beds are really comfy! I would highly recommend it for a self catering holiday in Cornwall.
Steve H October 17

Had a wonderful & very relaxing time at the cottages this weekend! The cottage was lovely and was perfect for us, our friends & two dogs. Only a 2min walk away from Harlyn Bay with beautiful soft yellow sand full of lots of friendly dog walkers & surfers. Constantine Bay is also a short drive away which again was perfect for the dogs and a very pretty beach. Next to the cottages is the local Harlyn Inn pub which served delicious food, a very welcoming atmosphere & were all very friendly to us and our dogs. We are on our way home now and already can’t wait to book up again. Thank you.
