The property was excellently located in the centre of the village with easy access to the amenities. It was equipped with all we needed and in fact we didn’t use the living room at all during our stay as we were perfectly comfortable in the spacious kitchen/diner. The garden was secure for our 2 inquisitive dogs, so an added bonus.

First location – We stumbled across St Merryn five years ago and have returned several times since. The village has everything you need, all within easy walking distance. It is also a good base to visit other attractions in Cornwall.
Second accommodation – The house is clean, well equipped and generally of a good standard. The layout of the house is also very good, especially with a larger group staying. The top floor bedroom, with balcony is particularly good – views and sunsets exceptional.
Would I recommend this property? Absolutely yes, the location, layout and facilities all come together to make a really good holiday experience.

This property is outstanding with a homely feel. The communication and customer service from the team at Cornish Holiday Cottage was exceptional. We had the best time, fantastic view from the master bedroom and a lovely balcony to enjoy a cuppa or drink and relax. The village is well serviced, a bakery, lots of places to eat including Rick Steins Cornish Arms is walkable. Padstow is a 7 min drive. The fact this property is dog friendly and has a great location means it was a great find and we will be back!

Beautiful and spacious 4 bedroom detached house with garage and private garden. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Great pub just down the road (Farmers Arms) ate there every night. Harlyn beach just two minutes away by car. Loved it.
Paula – May 2021
This is a beautiful house filled with everything we needed, from kitchen equipment to books & games. The photos were accurate, in fact the house was a but bigger than I thought it looked in the photos. The location was ideal for us, there was a pub, chippy, bakery and general store less than 5 mins walk away. Absolutely loved it.

Lovely house. We stayed as a family of 5 plus dog and felt really at home here. The house was well equipped, clean and comfy and of a really nice standard with a lovely sunny garden. St Merryn is a great location with plenty of nice beaches around and great places to eat/drink within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.
