'Delfi' garden apartment is at Yellow Sands, a small holiday complex in Harlyn Bay, 3 miles from the harbour town of Padstow. The apartment has car parking alongside and if the weather is great then the car can stay put for a while as Yellow Sands is close to the horseshoe shaped, sheltered bay, ideal for swimming and surfing, paddle boarding and coasteering adventurers!? (there is, conveniently, a Surf School based at Harlyn over the summer months :) From the front of the Yellow Sands apartment building we have access to the centre of the beach from the garden gate route, via footpath and along a private residential lane to reach the steps down to the sandy cove and onto finding a nice peaceful fine sandy spot to set up camp in the sunshine 'we hope'.
The ground floor garden apartment is situated on the s...

Hello Jo, Well, where have I been.. I have only recently seen your lovely, welcome review of our 'delfi' garden apartment. I don't like to prompt guests to leave a review as I feel that it is 'up to the guests themselves' but perhaps it...More

We stayed for the Padstow Obby Oss celebrations with our teenage girls and found the apartment to be extremely comfortable. We didn't want for anything and it was clean and tastefully furnished. The wifi kept the girls happy and the connection was fine. Linda was...More

Holiday Vacancy 21st Aug into Bank Hols.. and also to 5th Sept - which is a beautiful and quieter time to visit, if you are able to escape out of the school holiday times (tell older folks) Our tariff is very reasonable and we are open to a discount for smaller numbers of guests. Please enquire for an online quote. Unfortunately there is a commission to pay..unless you are able to find a direct enquiry is better. Delfiholidays -bookings are taken on on a weekly or fortnightly (discount) basis with FRIDAY to FRIDAY changeover in high summer (flexible dates at other times of year) and for relaxing or active breaks through the scenic Spring, Autumn and Wintertime.
We allow well behaved dogs out of the summer school holiday weeks (not during, due to the area being so busy generally). Ple...

Additional Rate and Availability Information
The garden apartment is ideal for 2-4 people but often out of main school hols it is let for just 2 people. The apartment is supplied with guest Bedlinen, some towels; wifi and all electicity INCLUDED in the tariff.
We do accept a well behaved pet dog out of the main summer school holiday season (NOT allowed during late July/Aug as Yellow Sands complex policy restricts due to the general numbers of holidaymakers in the area, on the beaches then).
I would be delighted to hear from you with regards to a possible booking - please message me with your party details for a fair quote. Unfortunately, we owners are unable to take our own bookings on site nowadays..which we appreciate does add to costs with the online booking fee. (If guests chose to stay again at Yellow Sands in future then the booking fee would then be saved and a discount for repeat booking old style would be offered.) I hope this sounds fair and reasonable.
Kind Regards,

About the neighbourhood
Both Delfi Apartment Cataclews Cottage are located within a small family run complex, in an acre of grounds with farmland beyond, and just a short walk from the beautiful sandy shores of Harlyn Bay and the coastal paths linking this wonderful7 bay area. Harlyn is a horseshoe shaped bay.. a wide crescent of fine sandy beach with blue slate headlands, rockpools, caves and little coves to discover and mile upon mile of (fairly level) cliff top walks to enjoy in both directions. Harlyn is distinctive as it has its own Treasure Island out in the bay called Gulland Rock beach is renowned for safe bathing and good surfing conditions as it is protected by Trevose Headland from strong currents (the Harlyn surf school is based here) 1m away is the local village of St. Merryn, for daily provisions... more
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Newquay, St. Mawgan (8 miles): 14.0 km
Railway: Bodmin Parkway (20 miles): 32.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth (45 miles): 72.0 km
A Car is necessary to explore the county extensively.. though, it is possible to manage without - Harlyn Bay is on the coastal bus route, from Padstow to Newquay ..& beyond! (leave the car at base & off you go!)
Nearest motorway junction to Cornwall is at Exeter, 50 Miles.
Exit onto the A30 at J31, rather than going over to Plymouth. This central, arterial dual carriageway, A30 runs scenically down from Dartmoor, into Cornwall at Launceston and over Bodmin moor to either exit at Bodmin for Wadebridge and Padstow, or continue passed Roche before turning right, and across country to Winnards Perch roundabout (less congested route). Take the 2nd, Padstow exit and continue to St.Merryn turn off. At village crossroads, cross over to the Harlyn Road. Yellow Sands is the first pro...
