Situated a stroll away from the centre of St Merryn, Willow Cottage is the perfect place for a couples or family getaway. Furnished to a high standard and offering everything you could need including parking, garden and a woodburner for those chillier months Willow Cottage won’t disappoint. The family dog is welcome too and with French door offering access to the enclosed garden from the kitchen they will love being able to stroll in and out at the ‘Cornish’ pace of life!

St Merryn has so much to offer- surf hire shop, convenience store, garage, many fantastic restaurants including Rick Steins- The Cornish Arms and of course the ever popular Barnecutts bakery. Being only a couple of miles from Padstow and having the likes of Harlyn and Constantine bay a short drive away makes this a great village to base yourself anytime of the year.

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).


As usual great holiday home, Willow Cottage was by far the most beautiful cottage we have stayed in to date, be back soon!Mr Mark Hughes - 6th November 2018
Willow cottage is a lovely cosy, welcoming house in a great location in St. Merryn. Brilliant if you have a dog as most beaches in the 'Seven Bays' area are dog friendly all the year round. The local bakers do very good frozen meals, the chippy is great, and the shop is very well stocked - no need to go anywhere else. The Cornish Arms down by the church is a great pub, with good quality food and you can take your dog anywhere inside.Mrs Sally Price - 1st October 2018
Willow Cottage was a real home from home set in a perfect location for easy access to the beautiful beaches close to St Merryn. The 7 bays are only a matter of minutes away and Padstow is but a short drive away. St Merryn was an ideal base for our family holiday with dog friendly family pubs and restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. The property is decorated to a high standard and furnished with modern comfortable furniture. The beds and bedding were extremely comfortable. Whilst the garden proved a little small for our Labrador the public footpath and fields opposite the property were ideal for him. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was extremely relaxing and a joy to stay in. We will definitely return to Willow Cottage.Mr Stephen Cox - 20th August 2018
Another wonderful stay at this lovely cottage. Happily recommend it and Cornish Horizons. Will definitely be booking again!Mrs Carolyn Matthews - 30th July 2018
The house is lovely, well kept and tidy with a few nice unexpected surprises. The bedding was incredibly comfy along with the spacious and cosy bedrooms!The Wiles Family - 22nd June 2018
Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage. Will be back for sure! Melanie & Tony - 10th June 2018
We had a wonderful stay at Willow Cottage. We will definitely be back and would recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone visiting the area. The Hobbs Family - 1st June 2018

Perfect location just on the edge of St. Merryn easy walk to shop and places to eat would love to stay again, thank you.

Really easy to use website and helpful info pack provided with things to do in the area with discount vouchers.Mrs Ruth Green - 15th April 2018
Lovely stay, great cottage! The Warwickshine Family - 3rd April 2018
This is a lovely dog friendly cottage which is decorated and equipped to a high standard. I really don't think the photos do it justice. It is a real home from home and we wanted for nothing. The garden has lovely furniture and was very peaceful. We loved walking on the local beaches at Treyarnon, Porthcothan and Harlyn. Definitely would recommend it. We booked this last minute and we wanted a shorter break than advertised. Cornish Horizons were great as usualMrs Heather Simpson - 8th November 2017
Absolutely lovely property - such a high standard that we all loved. Will be booking next year.Mrs Carolyn Matthews - 31st October 2017
Congratulations to the owner/caretaker of Willow Cottage. We have stayed at many cottages, and this was by far the best presented.Mrs Andrea Dreaves - 9th October 2017
We much enjoyed staying in this lovely cottage. Thank you very much for the welcome pack, much appreciated. Lisa & Martin - 29th September 2017
Fantastic cottage in a great area. Everything we needed and very good layout. Flanagan Family - 9th September 2017
WOW! What can I say. The most BEAUTIFUL cottage we have ever stayed in ... This is the nicest dog friendly accommodation ever - a real home from home with all you could ever need with lovely touches that you don't normally get in a holiday home. Our 7 year old son and our Border Terrier were instantly at home ... we will definitely be back for a week next summer! Ratcliffe Family - 4th September 2017
Lovely cottage, lovely area. Thank you very much, in the words of our 13 year old "Awesome can we buy this house".Jane, Nev and Ollie Dean - 1st September 2017
Willow Cottage is a lovely place to stay. It is thoughtfully laid out and we enjoyed our stay very much. We would all love to come back soon and stay longer. Hartley-Raven family - 28th August 2017
