All all of a sudden its autumn, out with the warmer cloths and looking forward to mushrooms, walking in the leaves As you can see from the photo of our lawn we have both in abundance.

Its also time to plant your spring bulbs, I’ve put in daffodils, tulips, iris, snow drop and some odd bulbs left over from last year, I don’t know what they are so, hopefully, it will be a nice colourful surprise..


We look forward to seeing you for an autumn break soon

Thanks to our guests for some lovely reviews


Sharmalyn House

Excellent, well furnished and clean on arrival

Harlyn Bay, Yellow Sands, Padstow, PL288SE, United Kingdom

Date of Stay

29 Jul 2018

We have regularly stayed t this location. The property is excellent and fully meets our needs. It is always clean and tidy on arrival and is well maintained. It meets all our family needs. The property list is accurate in all respects and the owners provide excellent service. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. The property is located in a key position to explore other parts of the North Cornwall coast and is within 30 minutes of Boscastle in the north and Newquay in the south. Padstow is within 1.5 miles and offers many attractions and restaurants for all tastes. The south coast is also accessible within reasonable travelling times.

First time at Apartment 4 Yellow Sands – great location for the beach and for getting into Padstow. Views were amazing from the apartment and there was plenty of room to move around. Very clean and everything required for self catering was there. We had great holiday would recommend this apartment.

Apartment 7

Fantastic location for a family

A fantastic property in an ideal location. What a view from the large lounge window.
Spotlessly clean and everything you need. A garden to sit out in and path to the beach. Close enough to Padstow for shops but secluded enough for peace and quiet. We all loved it. Will definitely be back next year.

Thank you all once again for your very kind words.

Perfect Location!

 Left on Jan 8, 2018 for a stay in Dec 2017
We highly recommend Sharmalyn House! Our stay in December was our 3rd stay in as many years. The location is perfect, it’s just a 5 minute walk to Harlyn beach. The house is large, very comfortable and well equipped with everything you need for a Cornish stay. There is a big open lounge/diner and a utility room, perfect for body boards & wetsuits. Padstow and many other beaches are all within a 10 minute drive making Harlyn a great base to explore the area. Communication with Martin & Debbie is great and we always feel very welcome. We can’t wait to stay again.

I love Yellow Sands for two reasons, the accommodation and the location. The flats are always very clean and comfortable and contain everything needed for self-catering. The beds are very comfortable. Martin and Debbie are welcoming and helpful. The location is wonderful with easy access to the wonderful Harlyn beach. It is easy to drive to other parts of Cornwall.

We really enjoyed staying at apartment 6. We couldn’t have asked for a more prefect location. The beach is just a short walk away. We also loved the view from the balcony. Being able to see and hear the sea was great. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Martin was friendly and welcoming and swapped microwaves for us really quickly when we found out we couldn’t fit our daughters bottles in the one we had. We would definitely recommend yellow sands apartments and would like to stay there again.

From Darren and Family

We recently spent a week in this fantastic apartment with our two children (9yr &14yr), and would highly recommend it. Views really are stunning, and apartment very clean and tidy. Easy, short walk access to the beach, ideal for our kids to enjoy their first ‘surfing’ holiday! Also easy access to stunning cliff top walks to other beaches and cafes, and only 5-10min drive to Padstow. Martin and Debbie were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed to make the most of our stay. Already can’t wait to go back!

Stephen and Family

The hosts were lovely. They were friendly and answered all our questions about the location, taxis places to visit etc. The apartment was in a stunning location. It was spotlessly clean and had absolutely everything you needed. Without a doubt the best self catering property we have ever used. We will definitely be returning to this gem of a place. Thank you so much for providing us with such a wonderful experience for my 50 birthday 😁�


My wife and myself have stayed here for several years now. The apartments are of a very high standard and kept spotlessly clean. Debbie and Martin are most welcoming and go the extra mile to help. Perfect location! Literally a stone’s throw away from the beach. Highly recommended holiday accommodation. The apartments are situated to what I think the best beach on the North coast of Cornwall.


Great location, short walk to the sandy beach which is ideal for surfing/bodyboarding and is patrolled by life guards. There are a number of lovely beaches nearby and a well used coastal footpath. For self caterers there are supermarkets not too far away and they do deliver. There are also a good number of local pubs and restaurants providing good locally produced food at sensible prices. The apartment was very comfortable and warm! Well equipped with everything a family could need.
