Set in the little quaint village of St Merryn, Castaways is a newly renovated property within a quiet residential area. This spacious property has three bedrooms and a large open plan living and dining room, the perfect space for entertaining the family. The fire in the centre of the room creates a cosy, relaxing space during the winter, with the sunny conservatory (complete with a table tennis table) allowing an abundance of natural light to flood through the open plan ground floor. Outside there is a delightful large garden with garden furniture, a great place to spend a summer's afternoon. The property benefits from private parking for one car, with additional on-street parking nearby. You can also enjoy the spectacular views from the North Cornwall coastal path that is within easy walking distance from the property.  

There is a wonderful collection of glorious sandy beaches centred around the popular village of St Merryn, 3 miles from Padstow. Each bay has its own unique character, from the half mile wide and beautiful beach at Harlyn, ideal for both families and surfers, to the sheltered cove at Trevone surrounded by high cliffs. These family friendly beaches are a great day spent for the whole family and provide excellent water sport activities for those that like to get their feet wet.

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).


Very clean property. We had a lovely time, great location and facilities.Miss Sarah Andrews - 22nd October 2018
Excellent property and service. Mrs Jacqueline Bushen - 14th October 2018
The property description and supporting photographs were exactly as we found the property to be. It was in a very good state of repair and clearly well looked after. The information provided in advance of us going and the response to my query was excellent. I would certainly recommend Cornish Horizons and use them again without hesitation. A very professional service.Mr Trevor Parker - 24th September 2018
