Come home in the evenings from the many wonderful attractions available in this part of Cornwall, to a delightful, well equipped, cosy bungalow.

Bikes can be hired to allow you to explore the Camel Estuary between Padstow and Bodmin, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stopping for a Cornish cream tea along the way. St Merryn Park is only 2-3 miles away from a number of beautiful sandy beaches, much loved by families and surfers alike. Whether you are a keen walker, or just prefer a gentle stroll, you can pick up the coastal path at several points nearby, taking in dramatic clifftop scenery at any time of year. The village of St. Merryn has surf shops, pubs, restaurants, takeaways, food stores, and a petrol station, and is just over a mile away. Facilities on St Merryn Park include sports bar, bar serving food, shop and tennis courts (seasonal opening times may apply to all facilities).  However, Atlantic Bays and Maribou Park are both close by where you will be welcome to have a drink or meal, or why not bring a takeaway back to the picnic table and just relax in Manassa's pleasant garden?

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).
