This stunning development of twenty-eight stylish and contemporary holiday villas is set within the St Merryn Park on the outskirts of St Merryn, just three miles from the popular Medieval estuary town of Padstow and close to seven spectacular bays.

This fantastic development is ideally located for those wishing to visit Padstow - noted for its busy fishing harbour and Rick Stein's famous restaurants. Across the estuary there is Rock, the magnificent sands of Daymar and a little further, Polzeath. This is spectacular walking country with some dramatic cliffs and coastline to explore.

Padstow is one of Cornwall's prettiest harbour towns and in recent years has become increasingly famous due to Celebrity Chef Rick Stein and his Seafood empire. This has boosted the town commercially and certainly put Padstow on the map for those looking for a gourmet Cornish experience. Rock, just across the River Camel, has a become a popular location because of it's great water sports and often the rich & famous (and occasionally even young royalty) can be seen drifting around! The port holds many pleasure craft, providing trips around the bay and up the river, as well as fishing boats supplying the mass of fish restaurants in the town.
Tourists first arrived in Padstow in 1899 with the arrival of the Railway, now the tramway is home to the Camel Trail. This fantastic 18 mile trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through from Padstow out as far as Bodmin, Wadebridge and even as far as Blisland on Bodmin Moor. It is eminently suitable for families and is a simply superb day out cruising along the estuary and countryside.
The Obby Oss celebrations on the first of May see the village elaborately decorated with the May Pole being the focus. Two stylised 'horses', the Old Oss and the Blue Oss dance through the streets trying to chase maidens, whilst children dress up in 'junior oss' costumes. The dancing continues until midnight when the Osses return to their separate stables. Travelling West along the coast you pass Trevose Head where sits a very pretty Lighthouse round to Constantine Bay and Bethruthan steps. On the Rock side of the River Camel you also have Daymer Bay & Polzeath, a haven for North Coast Surfers and more recently where David Cameron spent his summer holidays.
Guest from Sheffield stayed for 5 nights.
A great holiday, the property was well designed and roomy, making it easy to share with another couple.
Guest from Basingstoke stayed for 7 nights.
We actually stayed in 21 not 14a. So review on 21. Probably the best spot as larger garden and parking area. Great place to stay with a young family but would be a bit cramped with 5 / 6 adults because of size of furnishing. Description says washer / dryer which was incorrect as only a washing machine which was a bit of a pain because we had a few rainy days. Shower had a mind of its own with regard to whether it would turn on or off and temperature. Also sofa not too comfortable as it was a sofa bed and kept 'slipping'. Would not let these things put us off staying again as overall it was fab. ?
Guest from Torquay stayed for 4 nights.
Modern, comfortable villa with everything you need to enjoy a family holiday in a lovely area. The beaches are superb, local shops and good pubs and restaurants nearby to eat out. If the weather is bad you can retreat to the villa, throw everything in the wash, put on a DVD and relax in the warm.
Guest from Wokingham stayed for 7 nights.
A modern well appointed semi detached house in a private cul de sac within St Mereeyn Park which was clean and tidy and ideal for our desired location close to Constantine Bay. The fridge was noisy and the bathroom towel rail never got fixed but otherwise good value for money. Comfortable and warm accommodation. Small matter of interest, why is the villa numbered 14A when it is actually number 13 and as far as we could see there was no 14A?
Guest from Redditch stayed for 4 nights.
Convenient and comfortable property. My wife found that some areas were not as clean as she would have liked, although it was certainly not filthy by any means. The smoke alarm in the kitchen was very sensitive, and the toaster (immediately below it) set it off even before the toast was finished. Front door very difficult to lock.
Guest from Ilkley stayed for 4 nights.
The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The front door area was a bit shabby and the door was difficult to open & lock, but that was the only issue. Altogether a very comfortable and well stocked cottage which was a good base for our visit to Cornwall.
Guest from Karlsruhe stayed for 4 nights.
Easy access, great holiday home, shop nearby. Coffee, sugar were provided, washing up liquid would be nice to be provided as well. Would recommend definitely.
