Local Area

St Merryn is a hidden gem located within easy reach of the stunning coast of North Cornwall, with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, helpful local convenience stores and delis, and a wide variety of places to eat.  Sometimes overlooked, due to the proximity of the larger town of Padstow just ten minutes' drive away, St Merryn is nevertheless a great holiday setting in its own right, its convenient location and many amenities attracting visitors back year after year. Known as the 'Seven Bays' area due to the number of beaches along this part of the coastline, you know you are approaching the village when you see the 'Seven Bays for Seven Days' signs on the road heading in. If it's a walking holiday you are looking for, St Merryn is an excellent choice, being near to beaches, cliffs and fields, where lovely views entice you from your holiday home and into the great outdoors.  And of course, if you have a four legged family member, they will love it too!  There is also a riding stables nearby if you've always wanted to explore the area on horseback (a wonderful way to see the stunning local scenery).


We really enjoyed our stay here over the past week - loved it actually! This little cottage is jam-packed. Full or charm, adding to the stunning beauty which Cornwall has to offer.Raynor family - 22nd July 2017

Thank you for a lovely week at Spray Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and has suited our needs so beautifully. We all particularly love Porthcothan Bay, so being so close has been a real help - less driving for Dad! We have all felt so comfortable and have slept well in the lovely beds. Looking forward to coming back.Mr and Mrs Warbrick - 3rd September 2016

Really enjoyed our week away from it all here at Spray Cottage, and particularly loved the little touches eg wild flowers and lovely set tea tray when we arrived. This cottage is well equipped for a great week. We've visited Bedruthan Steps and Trevone Bay which we particularly loved. Feeling relaxed...Mr & Mrs Murtagh - 13th August 2016
Thank you for a lovely welcoming cottage. We've very much enjoyed our stay. The woodburner made it a cosy refuge for the wet days. We also enjoyed the pretty garden when the sun shone! We enjoyed exploring the area - cycling the Camel Trail, sunsets at Porthcothan beach and the Kernow Chocolate Factory just down the road. Marvellous! Would also recommend a visit to Rock and St Enodoc Church. A beautiful spot! Thank you!Jenny and Tim - 6th August 2016
We have enjoyed our honeymoon at this beautiful, welcoming cottage, with everything thought of, thoroughly charming, well looked after, well equipped little Gem! We have explored most of the local and not so local area and having this wonderful little place to come back to in the evenings was a joy & made our honeymoon very special. Many thanks for the gifts & everything.Mr & Mrs M - 11th June 2016
