  • "It would have been nice to be told of all the building work going on in the other cottages facing the one we stayed in."

    The sun loungers were dirty with mold and bird dropping along with the benches and picknick table outside our property. the windows were dirty and could do with a good clean. the position of the property was very good being close to the beach and coastal path.

  • "Such a lovely cottage we had an amazing stay at Tynk!"

    Great location so close to the coastal paths and pretty coves. Tynk is so thoughtfully equipped for comfort and ease on holiday. Thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable we would love to come back.

    Thank you so much for your kind words - we hope you return! Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Tynk, only a short walk to the beach."

    The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. The only thing that could be improved would be an upgrade on the shower. We would love to return!

    Thank you for your feedback - a new shower is now in place. Would love to have you return too. Property Owner

  • "It was the second time we stayed at Tynk this year which is a lovely family and dog friendly property that is very clean and tidy."

    It is in a great location being only 2 minutes walk from Harlyn beach, an all year round beautiful dog friendly beach that has life guards, surf school and great toilets. We have booked Tynk again for next summer and can’t wait

  • "Tynk is part of a very nice complex of linked cottages, extremely convenient for the beach."

    The cottage itself was very clean, reasonably, but not overly, furnished & equipped. It was o.k. for two of us but I wouldn't recommend it for 4 adults. It might be o.k. for a family with 2 young children however. The main bedroom would have been better with taller hanging space & a dressing table/desk rather than the sofa that was there. Otherwise the bed was very comfortable and the room pleasant. The second bedroom had only the two single beds, one chair & one set of drawers. However, downstairs was a bit basic as was the kitchen equipment. I wouldn't have liked to have had to spend much time there if the weather had been bad. Fortunately we didn't have to and only had to have breakfast there. Our biggest bugbear downstairs was the lighting. The main overhead light in the sitting area was harsh and there was only one small lamp to use otherwise. The worst was in the kitchen as it wasn't bright enough. It was difficult to read the numbers on the hob it was so inadequate, even with the hob over light on. There was no other light for the cooking area. It is a shame as downstairs is quite spacious and could have been made a lot more comfortable, even in these trying times

  • "What a charming holiday cottage set in a lovely location for dog walking, hiking or just general outdoor activities."

    Accommodation was beautifully clean inside and out and very well equipped for a relaxing stay. Beaches are wonderful in this area and everywhere was so dog friendly.

  • "The only heating provided in the house was a tiny electric radiator and a fan heater fire place."

    There was no heating provided at all for the upstairs of the cottage so it was cold upstairs and by the end of the week we were using cold damp towels. The frustrating thing was the house has radiators in every room but the central heating is turned off and the controls are locked away so it can't be turned on. There needs to be some form of heating supplied in the bedrooms and bathroom. It was a very strange welcome basket -all it contained was a packet of dog biscuits and a handful of dishwasher tablets. The house is in a good location, its nice and easy to nip to Padstow and its very handy having a parking space. The beach nearby is lovely.

    I am really sorry that you had no heating. Unfortunately I have only been made aware of this through your review and not during your holiday break. I would have immediately had someone round to ensure you were all nice and warm - the heating should be on at all times with radiator controls to vary the temperature. I wish I had known sooner as I would have responded and acted straight away. I can only apologise. Property Owner

  • "What a beautiful cottage!"

    The rooms are immaculately clean, surprisingly spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. Board games were a nice touch. The stunning beaches of Harlyn Bay are just outside the door and there are great places to eat well within walking distance. The area is perfect if you are looking to escape the usual hectic pace of life without being too far from civilisation. The shops and restaurants in Padstow are lovely and don’t miss the ferry to Rock. We loved both the cottage and the area. Will definitely be back. Thank you!

About the location

HARLYN, CORNWALL

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.
