About Sharon S

Hello and thank you for viewing our cottage.

Harlequin is owned by me Sharon, my husband Andrew and Grace our Sprocker. We are from Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

We bought the cottage in 2014 after a day trip to The Bay having heard how dog friendly it is.

We have tried to make Harlequin a home from home, providing everything that you usually have to hand. We don't want you to have to think about washing up liquid, tea-towels and dishcloths - You're On Holiday!!

We hope that you have found all the details you need. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you. There are no added fees if you book directly through our website.

“Superb cottage in an excellent location”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 31 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had a lovely stay and were sad to leave. We've stayed at The Bay many times and would rate this cottage as one of the best. Compared to some of the other 2 bedroom cottages, this one is more spacious, but more importantly the owner has put a lot of thought into making sure that guests have everything they... more

Quick getaway

Thank you Sharon ...we loved your house....we were very lucky with the fabulous weather and the wonderful location.....just a minor mention ..we struggled with the winter duvet ....

Owner's Response: How lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Harlequin and loved our house. I agree that the location is wonderful, with lots of places to visit right on our doorstep. We do try to provide everything that a guest could want to make their holiday as perfect as possible. You really did drop on with the good weather and at home I found that any duvet was too much during that mini heatwave. Thanks and best wishes Sharon

Had a wonderful relaxed stay at the lovely Harlequin cottage

  • 5 of 5

We found everything we needed and more when we recently had a weekend stay at the Harlequin. We were a party of 4 adults and 1 elderly Springer spaniel. The cottage was spacious, modern and very well equipped. We did wonder if our old timer would settle OK but he felt at home straight away...especially when he found the dog treat tin!

All communication from the owner Sharon was warm and friendly and she has definitely thought hard to make sure that visitors to the Harlequin have everything they need.

Will be booking again in the future.

It's good that your fifth family member settled in so well - and yes, treats always help. You were great guests and it was lovely communicating with you. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Best place ever

  • 5 of 5

Have returned to Harlequin for the third time now and it never fails to impress. When expectations have been set so high, nothing else compares. The owners have thought of everything and nothing is too much trouble and the cottage is well equipped to the highest standard. We will never stay anywhere else-why bother when we know that Harlequin will be out home from home. Can't wait to go again next summer-already booked! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for such a complimentary review and so glad to hear that you enjoy staying at Harlequin so much. We have tried hard to create a holiday home where people can just unpack, relax and enjoy themselves and it sounds like we are getting it right. Looking forward to welcoming you back.
