No 5 The Mews, Harlyn Bay, Padstow, Cornwall, is a delightful modern cottage offering 4 star self catering and accommodation for 6 people. The dog-friendly cottage is a 2 minute flat walk away from the breathtaking Harlyn Bay beach.
The cottage has been privately owned by Teresa and David Heritage for 12 years and is situated in a small complex of holiday cottages 2 minutes from the beach. The cottage's location is one of its main appeals as it's not just the beach; nearby St Merryn has offers Barnecutt's bakery, Rafferty's caf&ecute; and wine bar, a garage, Friar Tucks' infamous fish and chip shop, a newsagent and several local shops. A large Tesco is only 10 minutes drive away and, of course, there is Padstow with all its local delights and culinary experiences including Rick Stein's various offerings and Paul Ainsworth's chain of eateries.
With 3 good sized bedrooms, our cottage at No.5 makes a great holiday home for families or surfers that want a little luxury after a day on the beach. We offer 2 double bedrooms and one bedroom with bunk beds. The master bedroom has en suite facilities and there's a family sized bathroom too.
Padstow is just a 10 minute drive away so, even when the thought of self catering doesn't appeal, Padstow's restaurants, bars and fine dining are just a short drive away.
