About the property

Check out our new web-site @ www.stmellionholidaycottage.com/

12 Oakridge is a holiday cottage located in a tranquil setting close to St Mellion village in Cornwall. The lodge is set in 39 acres of countryside bordering the fabulous St Mellion International golf and leisure resort and is also close to the wonderful beaches of both Devon and Cornwall.

12 Oakridge comes with two golf and two leisure passes which permit free use of the St Mellion facilities, including the two golf courses, swimming and leisure pools (NB; children 12 and under get in free), sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, gym, tennis courts, etc.

St Mellion International Resort has two championship golf courses and has previously hosted the Benson & Hedges International Open and English Seniors Open. The Jack Nicklaus designed ‘Signature Course’ (the UK’s first JN course and one of only three in England) is a real challenge but will live long in the memory. The 'Kernow' course isn’t quite as challenging but is certainly no walk in the park.

About Simon Parker

Although we love to visit Oakridge as often as we can, unfortunately, due to work & family commitments this does not happen nearly as often as we would like.

This is not a cosy second home benefit for us therefore we are pleased to offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy everything that the property and location has to offer.

Our Visitor Book comments consistently indicate that people not only appreciate the accommodation and the superb golf & leisure facilities that St Mellion has to offer, but also consider that 12 Oakridge provides an ideal base from which to explore the numerous and varied local attractions.

We do hope that you enjoy your stay.

Kind Regards

The Parker Family

Simon Parker purchased this house in 2009

Why Simon Parker chose Cornwall

We had been looking for a holiday property in Devon or Cornwall as a family getaway and long-term investment and stumbled across Oakridge almost by mistake. How lucky we were - we immediately fell in love with both the house, the 'up-side down' living concept and the location on a tranquil private estate.

Admittedly, this was helped by the fact that certain family members are keen golfers and the Jack Nicklaus designed 'Signature' course plus the 'Kernow' course at St Mellion International Resort provide such varied, challenging and rewarding (at least some of the time!) golf in a superb setting.

That and the fact that the 13th hole on the 'Signature' course is a 1 minute walk across the bridge outside the house with the clubhouse and leisure club a short gentle stroll away across the golf course pretty much sealed it for us.

What makes this house unique

To enable guests to take advantage of the facilities we provide two golf and two leisure passes to St Mellion which permit two people to play free golf on either the 'Signature' course or the 'Kernow' course whilst two people enjoy the health club facilities which include a 25m pool, leisure pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, CV gym, tennis courts, etc. These passes are complimentary for our guests and included in the rental price and we hope that people appreciate and make good use of them during their stay.

In addition to the golf and leisure facilities, 12 Oakridge provides a superb base from which to explore the beautiful countryside with so much to see and do within just a short drive - there is far too much to list but a few family favourites are Whitsand Bay, Mt Edgcumbe Country Park, Cotehele House & Quay and Antony House.

Very nice accomadation

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent Christmas week at 12 Oakridge and it was very nice accomadation very clean and warm on arrival check in was fine. The house had most things that you could require for a weeks stay with the exception of wine glasses there was no shortage of large glasses but there was only 2 wine glasses . No problem as we just went and brought some from the local supermarket . The only major problem that we had was the steps from the car parking to the house as these are wooden and the steps and handrail when wet and icy were extremely slippy.

Great to have the passes for golf and leisure included. And local pub the Cardinals Hatt was very handy for a drink or food. Simon was extremely helpful and professional and we will return again.

Owner's Response: Hello Debra Thank you for your kind words, I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we will be more than pleased to accommodate you again in the future. With regard to the couple of issues you mention, we will review the wine glass situation and provide new as necessary. Also, the steps across the site were discussed at the management company AGM on 14th Jan and anti-slip strips are going to be fitted shortly. The people who look after the grounds do try and keep on top of things and make sure there are no particularly hazardous areas but this can be difficult when you are working with the vagaries of the British weather. There are actually a couple of grit bins on the estate that can be used in an 'emergency'. Kind Regards Simon

Hugely Recommened

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

I stayed 3nights at Oakridge for my wedding. We used it the night before for pre wedding preparations with my mum and bridesmaids and then spent the following 2 nights with my husband.

I cannot recommend enough it was fully equipped with everything you could possibly think of, it's a beautiful location and to top it of lovely and spacious (especially for many women in big dresses including hair and makeup ladies) but also cosy enough for my husband and I to enjoy our first few nights together.

Simon Parker who I dealt with when booking and prior to my stay is an absolute star and cannot help enough we had a beautiful card and champagne left for us and it's these little touches that just made my wedding weekend just perfect.

Would recommend 12 Oakridge extremely high as a must place to stay we even enjoyed a spa day the day after our wedding at st mellion and being a spa therapist would recommend the treatments very highly.

Just an all round perfect stay.

Fab lodge

Yet another great weekend at the lodge, everything you would need home from home. The men enjoyed the golf and then we used the leisure passes.

Looking forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Teresa Many thanks for your kind review. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Oakridge once again and made good use of the golf and leisure passes. We are receiving an increasing number of repeat bookings which is testament to the various appeals of the lodge which people obviously appreciate - it very satisfying that people enjoy their well earned holiday breaks in our home. The only downside is that we get little chance to enjoy it ourselves! We hope that we will be able to welcome you back again next year. Kind regards Simon
