The location and views really define Trenley. There are magnificent views across the Atlantic Ocean to Trevose Head and Wales beyond. Trenley is situated in what is known as "The Field" where six other dwellings reside at the top of the sand dunes leading down to the Harlyn beach and the sea. Inside the house retains its character and provides a great base for your holiday whether in summer or winter. The kitchen and living areas are very smart – benefiting from amazing views from the 1st floor.
There are two entrances into Trenley, and with the house being sited on a small rise, one enters the property at ground level, whereas the more formal front door can be found round to the back of the house at 1st or raised ground floor level. The bedrooms are split – two downstairs and two upstairs. Downstairs, the first room has a king size bed, wash basin, fitted cupboards, wardrobes and drawers. Opposite is a similar bedroom with two 2ft 6in single beds. There is a shower room and cloakroom.
On the raised ground floor are two more bedrooms. One bedroom at the back of the property has dual aspect so that you can sit in bed and look at the sea and up to Trevose Head. This room has twin beds, wash basin, fitted wardrobe and drawer space, bedside tables and bedside lights. The other bedroom faces the sea, giving views down to the beach. This room has a 5 ft king bed, fitted cupboards, wash basin, bedside tables and lights over the bed.
There are two bathrooms at Trenley. Downstairs there is a shower room with loo and basin and a separate cloakroom. Upstairs, the main bathroom has a bath with shower over and basin – while a separate loo can be found next door.
The comfortable sitting room is at the head of the stairs and has windows looking out in three directions making it spacious and light. There are comfortable sofas and chairs, side tables, TV, DVD, loads of books and games in the bookcases and a CD player. The balcony outside the kitchen/dining room also provides fantastic views and a great place to sit and relax. If privacy is desired there is also now a separate snug on the ground floor with second TV and two sofas, a perfect space for children to play or adults to sit quietly with a good book.
- Kitchen and Dining
The refurbished kitchen/dining area lies to the right of the sitting room and is well equipped with cooking utensils, cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer and lots of cupboard space. The dining part has a long table with space for eight. There are French doors leading to the balcony where one can sit and admire the view. The back door from the kitchen leads out on to the patio at the back of the house. This is a south-facing sun trap where you can have coffee or tea in the summer sun.
The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the downstairs utility. Fast wireless broadband is available at Trenley. A hard tennis court is available for use right next to the house - it is shared with the handful of houses located in 'The Field' at Harlyn. Trenley has Solar PV - so please try to do your tumble drying during the day when the sun is shining!
Trenley is situated in ‘The Field’ and there is no clearly delineated or enclosed garden. But the surroundings are quiet with no traffic other than servicing the 5 properties, and so there is ample room for running and for ball games – of course being sensitive to others. The grass area around the back of the house is certainly considered Trenley’s garden. This area receives wonderful sun all day, and the terrace here, with table and benches, is the perfect sun warmed spot to sit out of the breeze. The driveway has space for at least two cars.
The tennis court is shared by the houses in ‘The Field’ and is for your use.
Trenley lies behind the sand dunes at Harlyn Bay and a short walk down to the cliff tops leads along the cliff path and straight down onto the middle of Harlyn beach. Harlyn beach is one of the best family beaches around – very long with plenty of sand even at high tide. The beach car park is at one end of the beach, and many do not make further than the 1st half of the beach. From where the footpath ends in steps down to the beach, the beach is absolutely magnificent – with fantastic rock formations, small caves and overhangs in which to sunbathe and relax. When the sun is out and the air is warm, this end of Harlyn really feels almost tropical.
Alternatively, you can walk down the road in a few minutes to Harlyn bridge, and onto the beach by the car park. Here you can hire surf boards and book surf lessons. Harlyn is well renowned for surfing – being protected from the prevailing winds and yet still picking up plenty of waves. It’s a perfect place to learn, and you will find that many surf schools do most of their training here.
The Harlyn Inn can be found just behind the beach down by the bridge – providing refreshments and pub food every day of the week. There are also pool tables here. In the same building, there is a beach shop and take away. There is also a take-away van in the car park up on the headland during high season – good for energy after a swim in the sea!

I cannot believe our week has passed so quickly. What a fabulous time we’ve all had. From the moment we arrived to a lovely tray of tea and cake, we just knew we had found the perfect place for our family holiday. Comfort, every thing you could want from a beach house property; space, location. Views to die for!! We will be planning our next visit and hope its going to be soon. Thank you once again for your excellent service and support.

Trenley is in a super location and with lovely views, the upstairs double bed that we use is comfortable and the bed linen good quality and beautifully laundered. The house was lovely and clean on arrival and we met your cleaning staff again this year and as usual found them to be very nice hardworking people.

We had a lovely stay at Trenley! It is in a great position and we really loved having the use of the tennis court which was a real bonus for us!
On a housekeeping note – the kitchen is very well equipped – apart from – a salad bowl!!! I used the big Le Creuset pot which was rather heavy! We searched high and low but couldn’t find anything anywhere that resembled a salad bowl.
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Regarding the salad bowl, we will take it into account and try to sort something out for the future.

We had a lovely week and thought the improvements were super. The double bedroom was better at the back of the house downstairs. I thought the drying room was a great idea and although we didn’t need to use it I can see it would be great in the summer or if there was lots of wet washing! Also the outside shower and taps would be good for surfers. The downstairs sitting room was very smart and makes another living area. The large entrance hall with many hooks and shoe racks was brilliant. It reminded me of a school cloakroom and certainly had room for all our coats and boots! It is such a fantastic situation and for my mother, who is not able to walk far,it is wonderful as she can see the sea from the living room or balcony. We love being able to get to the beach so easily.

We enjoyed a very comfortable and enjoyable holiday at Trenley and in Harlyn over Christmas and would certainly like to return to the property in the future.
