Oakridge is a lovely holiday location. The cottage was comfortable and warm and the China Fleet facilities were really great.
Great all round vacation

A fantastic stay in a stunning coutryside location
This is a well equipped cottage in a stunning woodland setting. It is a great location for visiting most of the sights of Devon and Cornwall on both the north and south coast, Dartmoor and Plymouth. A big thank you to Neville and Francis for all the fantastic info provided regarding places to visit and local eateries and pubs and also the very welcome gift of wine and biscuits left for our arrival. There were passes provided for golf and the country club facilities and although we didn't use them I overheard another family discussing a fun morning they had there.
We just loved our stay at Oakridge. The China Fleet club was brilliant for golf and pool. Great locale for seeing Cornwall's sights (personal favourite was the Cheesewrings at Minions. The house was very well equipped and spacious for 4 people & the grounds were a treat.
In need of some tlc
A lovely property that requires some tender loving care.
It really is located a beautiful place, but why put 5 properties together in a confined area. This resulted in us being able to converse with our neighbours whilst sitting on the balcony eating our breakfast (their balcony was only 10 feet away - I kid you not!!). There may be only 20 houses on a 40 acre site but they are bunched together in confined areas in 4 sets of 5.
The other problem is that of the 40 acres, 38 are the golf course. I was advised by the owner of the property not to walk around the course on grounds of health & safety - so nowhere for the 2 girls to ride their bikes.
If used as a base only, especially for the golf at St Mellion, then it is ideal, but I could not recommend for a family who wanted to do anything on site.
Finally, homeaway has pictures of St Mellion golf on its site & tells you that you get free access to golf for the week when you book this property. You do, but NOT at ST Mellion. I believe this to be a little misleading. The owner of Sunningdale has actually amended their own website after I discussed this with them. As for the golf, China Fleet is an OK course, but it is not in the same league as St Mellion. Be aware.
We would always recommend that prospective guests examine carefully the information we provide on each of our properties. In this instance, this guest did not & as a result, perhaps chose a property that did not match their needs.
There are a number of properties at this delightful location of Oakridge St Mellion. Some have memberships at the renowned St Mellion club (we have 2 - numbers 703005 & 716606 on Homeaway). This property like others at Oakridge, has memberships at China Fleet. St Mellion has better golf facilities & China Fleet, a bit further away) has better leisure facilities.
There are 40 acres of woodland and paths at Oakridge & these form an integral part of this lovely estate. They do NOT belong to the golf club.
The properties are in a standard courtyard setting with a picture which hopefully makes their location clear. Balconies are close, but at least 30' separates them. In addition, Sunningdale has a private & very sunny rear deck.
Wonderful holiday location
Lovely house - very well equipped & spacious for a holiday home.
Grounds were perfect for the little one to roam around after a day out.
Convenient to get around Cornwall & had added bonus of memberships at the China Fleet resort. Goold golf course (though nothing really special) but pool & spa really top class. Thank you
