About the property

Bungalow in St Merryn, Padstow, Cornwall, England - Quiet cul de sac location, close to St Merryn village centre

Fully refurbished in Spring 2015, this is a modern, fully equipped, dog friendly, comfortable three bed bungalow, in a quiet cul de sac location. All linen and towels are provided, and all beds will be made up prior to your arrival. An open plan kitchen/dining area with bi fold doors extends onto a patio area and into a lawned garden. There are two bathrooms (one en suite), a cloakroom (off the kitchen), and a wet room area in the garage which allows sand to be washed off surfers and dogs before entering the house. We have installed a wood burner in the lounge for the colder nights. One small or medium sized, well behaved dog is permitted - extra charges apply. We have a seven day minimum stay at any time of the year, with a Saturday changeover. Free BT broadband wifi is available throughout, with HD TVs in the lounge and kitchen. Plenty of parking is available. It is a short walk to the centre of St Merryn village and its many amenities, plus it's a short drive to the many fantastic beaches in this part of Cornwall

Bookings for each year can be made from 1 September of the previous year. For example, bookings for 2016 could have been made from 1 September 2015 onwards. We reserve several weeks for our own use, but those weeks may be released during the year once our own holiday plans become clearer.

About Samantha Milner

We live in Bristol with our two school age children and cocker spaniel, but try to visit Cornwall as often as we can.

Samantha Milner purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Samantha Milner chose St Merryn

We have visited this part of the north coast of Cornwall for more than 10 years, sometimes more than once a year. We love the variety of activities in the area (water sports, cycling, walking, visiting Padstow for an ice cream...). The cross roads at the centre of the village of St Merryn contains a surprisingly large range of facilities (corner shops, deli, a variety of restaurants and take aways, two pubs, surf shop, petrol station). The quality of the beaches nearby is fantastic (the area is known as '7 bays for 7 days'). Each of them has their own characteristics, catering for different interests, and age ranges. We particularly like coming here out of season, and of course our dog loves it whatever the time of year and whichever beach we go to

What makes this bungalow unique

We have stayed in many of the available rental properties in St Merryn, and have tried to create a property which takes the best of what we have seen in the holiday homes we have previously rented: open plan kitchen/dining area, which leads into the garden; a separate lounge with wood burner for the cooler nights; three comfortable bedrooms, and a separate utility area/wet room to shower off surfers, their wet suits (and their dog...). The bungalow is in a quiet cul de sac, but is only a short level walk to the centre of the village and a short drive to numerous beaches and the towns of Padstow/Newquay/Wadebridge

Beautiful spacious bungalow in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Not the first time we have stayed here. It's a pleasure to return. The bungalow is spacious,comfortable and well equipped. It is well placed to travel to all areas of Cornwall and the village of St Merryn has shops, cafes,pubs and a lovely bakery. The people are friendly so what more can you want. We are hoping to return.

Fantastic house

This house is very well equipped, spacious indoor and out - with chimminea and BBQ

Ample room for six adults

Within 10 mins walk of a Rick Stein pub the Cornish arms were we celebrated a special birthday - fantastic food and the village with other dining places

Great access to stunning walks along the coast line and great cycling through the country lanes - this was busy on times

Took a visit to St Isaac which was stunning too

We all had a fab time

Thank you to the owners for sharing this property

Definitely one one my list of return visits

Beautiful property. Clean and comfortable. Truly home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here previously and indeed plan to return. The property is spacious and extremely comfortable containing everything you could need and is decorated and furnished to a high standard. The locals are friendly and St Merryn and the surrounding countryside is very picturesque.One of the nicest properties we have ever stayed in.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, beautifully furnished, however, the only issue we had was the Sliding/tilting lounge door which we had a problem with on Wednesday night. We called the Caretaker and between us, we got it back on the rail. Apparently this is the third time this Summer this has happened. There is a small bracket/ guide that needs to be pushed back into the bottom glide system and it all works. Maybe something to mention in your literature.

That besides, we had a lovely time and that we hope that we left your property as you would expect.

We would like to return and a big thanks again to Tony for his prompt response

Lyndsay, honey and Alan

Owner's Response: Dear Lyndsay Thank you for your feedback. We had the same problem during the summer so sorting it out is on the 'to do' list over the winter. I hope it did not spoil your stay too much. Kind regards Andrew

Spacious property in excellent location very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed staying in the property Springtide which has an excellent layout and had every item we could possibly need. Everything was so clean, fresh and spotless. The property was much larger than we expected and the shower in the garage was really handy for sandy kids and the dog! There is so much to do in the area and we particularly enjoyed surfing at Harlyn bay, the Camel trail bike ride and wandering around Padstow. The park and ride into Padstow was very efficient and best way to visit. We really enjoyed eating at the Ivy House and Cornish Arms.

Thank you to Samantha and Andrew for letting us stay.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 10 Miles Nearest Ferry : Padstow to Rock at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Bodmin at 20 Miles Nearest Beach : Harlyn Bay at 2 Miles Car: necessary

St Merryn village centre

We are a few minutes walk from the 'crossroads', where you will find a petrol station, a grocery store, several restaurants and takeaways, a bakery, a pub and a surf shop. The Cornish Arms (owned by Rick Stein) is a short walk in the opposite direction

Padstow is about 10 minutes drive away, with a Tesco and a variety of shops, restaurants and of course the harbour area

Wadebridge, Newquay (nearest airport) and Bodmin (nearest train station) are close by

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is Harlyn Bay, a wonderful stretch of sand and home to the local surf school just over a mile away. Constantine Bay and Treyarnon are also close by with some fantastic walks, both coastal and inland. One of our favourite beaches is Tregirls/Hawkers Cove, just north of Padstow. Being within the Camel estuary, the waves are typically smaller and so it is particularly suited to families with smaller children
