Booked a dog friendly villa via a third party website offer, as a winter break. The booking offer was excellent for a three night stay, inclusive of a gift card to use at Rick Stein's. The villas are situated at the back of a residential/holiday park in St Merryn and easily found via the postcode. Instructions for access were equally...

We, my family and I stayed there for a week, the worst time ever! We stayed in July 2016, it was to celebrate my eldest daughters birthday as well as a holiday. We were taken to a villa in a building site and around a building site, villas were built very close to each other. Not to mention close to...

Having booked this on an offer we were a little apprehensive as to what we would find. However we were very pleasantly surprised, the house was nice, modern, good size for the 3 of us, it was clean, had all the mod cons: washing machine, dishwasher, iron, TV & DVD. The local shop was very well stocked, our daughter loved...

Great location to explore the beaches of the Atlantic coast near Padstow. Lots of good restaurants within 30 mins drive. The Villas are on a holiday park but the standard of accommodation is excellent even if you do look out on to other Villas or someone's holiday home. Decor is modern and the kitchen and bathroom are almost new. The...

Home from home, well equipped and a good point from which to explore Cornwall. There are negatives though,St Merryn Holiday Park has become a bit of a thriving housing estate and you are greeted by a mini building site on entering the complex. That said, the pros outweigh the cons and we like the flexibility of booking just a few...

We found the villa very comfortable and clean, in a quiet location which suited us very well indeed. The villa was as well equipped as it could possibly be,with nothing lacking. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The complex was well cared for and clean overall. The remoteness of the location was of no problem to us - in...

The Complex is smart, well kept and manicured. A car (or motorbike) is absolutely essential, as we did not see any public transport in the area. The villa was a really lovely surprise in that it had absolutely everything we might have needed. For some reason I had the impression that it would be close to the coast / beaches;...

Location a little odd. Small cul de sac on what seems to be a residential park homes type of complex. You need car to get to beaches, which is such a shame for those that enjoy walking. Accommodation not luxurious. Way overpriced. Disappointed
