Wagtail enjoys panoramic views across the countryside towards St Breock Downs and is one of a group of traditional stone cottages on Rosken Farm, equipped especially to meet the needs of visitors to our beautiful part of Cornwall. Everything you could wish for is on hand to make your stay a memorable experience. Although Wagtail has its own enclosed garden, there is so much more space besides, where visitors to Rosken Farm are invited to wander through fields (providing the country code is observed). For those with children who need to run off excess energy, there is an outside play area kitted out with badminton, skittles, basketball, football and other open air games equipment. Within easy striking distance are several sandy beaches, clifftop walks and hidden coves waiting to be discovered. 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).

This property offers a small group discount of 10% on full weekly bookings for parties of 2 during low season which means that bedroom 2 will be unavailable. This discount is automatically applied and the holiday price you are quoted reflects this.

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).
