Dove Cottage is nestled in the tranquil Cornish countryside and is one of a group of traditional stone cottages situated on Rosken Farm. This is a wonderful place to stay where you can enjoy the birds and wildlife in the surrounding countryside but are only 3 miles from Padstow, several glorious sandy beaches and stunning cliff top walks. Everything you could wish for is on hand to make your stay a memorable experience. Dove Cottage has its own enclosed garden but there is so much more space besides; visitors to Rosken Farm are invited to wander through fields (providing the country code is observed) and for those with children who need to burn off excess energy, there is an outside play area kitted out with badminton, skittles, basketball, football and other open air games equipment.  You can also take advantage of £5 discount off the green fee at the Merlin Golf Club (Mawgan Porth), a 20% discount off green fees at Mullion Golf Club (Cury, Helston).

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).
