Fancy a holiday close to the '7 bays for 7 days'?  Fancy staying a short walk from the centre of the bustling village of St Merryn?  Then Sandseekers is sure to fit the bill! This stylish, modern and cosy 2 bedroomed house is the perfect base to enjoy and explore Cornwall.  Boasting a south easterly enclosed courtyard garden that benefits from sunshine nearly all day, perfect for those lazy chill-out afternoons or evening barbecues.  Being so close to all the restaurants, pubs and cafes that St Merryn has to offer, including Rick Stein’s Cornish Arms pub, you may never feel like cooking! There is always something to do whatever the weather - surfing, snorkelling, swimming, fishing - so this is the perfect location to best explore St Merryn's 7 bays.  The famous old fishing port of Padstow is just a couple of miles away where crabbing over the harbour wall is a must. Have a squawk of a time!

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).
