About the property

Check out our new web-site @

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 South East 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.

Stunning location & perfect holiday home away

  • 5 of 5

The location is beautiful regardless of weather, rain or shine! We stayed 5 nights with our 2 older kids (19 & 21), the bedrooms & bathrooms in each are perfect! The upper floor is wonderfully light & open, kitchen has everything we needed & more. We spent our days exploring Cornwall & Devon, perfect location for that. Highly recommended!

Well appointed rural property.

  • 5 of 5

If you like peace and quiet this is the ideal location. The Lodge is very well appointed and would highly recommend this property. We were 4 adults with a 4 and a 2 year old. A stair gate was provided and essential for the staircase, as the living area was upstairs. We had plenty of space and having 3 bedrooms was an asset. This property has a number of steps from the car park to the front door, therefore, not suitable for people with mobility problems and small children need to be supervised. Overall excellent stay and we would highly recommend using the St Mellion Hotel leisure passes, bar and restaurant. Simon the owner was very helpful and communicated well.

Great property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean tidy and perfectly adequate for 4 adults. At full capacity (6) it would be a little cramped. We would have preferred chairs at the table rather than wooden benches but as we ate out mostly it was not an issue. The Golf and Leisure passes were what made our stay and we were blessed with great weather for most of the week so were able to enjoy them in full.

A wonderful, peaceful get away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely long weekend at 12 Oakridge Lodge. Booking was straightforward and the owner was very responsive and helpful in the run up to our stay. The lodge was looked after, clean and tidy, we loved the layout and instantly felt settled. It is well stocked in the kitchen and we were kindly left a loaf of bread and bottle of wine as well as a few other welcome items which were much appreciated. Set on the outskirts of the St Mellion golf resort, the free passes came in very handy for golf and use of the leisure facilities there, which were easy to access. The other lodges are fairly close by, but not at all in a way that makes you feel on top of one another. It's nicely laid out, well designed and private, and the location is absolutely lovely sat on a hillside. I would certainly stay again.

Owner's Response: Hello Helen Many thanks for the lovely review - it is so nice to get such positive feedback from guests. We are constantly investing in the upkeep of the property and I'm glad that it met your expectations and that the small welcome pack that we provide went down well. It is also encouraging to know that people make good use of the golf and leisure facilities for which we provide complimentary passes. Thank you once again for taking the time to post a review, we do hope that we might be able to welcome you back in the not too distant future. Kind Regards Simon

Whitsand Bay
Car: recommended


St Mellion is well situated for access to the many delights offered by the south and north Cornwall coasts.

The nearest large beach is the stunning Whitsand Bay which is only 25 min drive away. Just beyond, Rame Head peninsula offers great coast walks & sublime views over Whitsand Bay to the west, Plymouth Sound to the north & the Devon coast line to the east. A little further afield are the seaside resorts of Looe, Polperro & Fowey. Bude & Padstow are approx 1 hour away on the north Cornwall coast.


St Mellion is a small village in south-east Cornwall located on the A388 between Saltash & Callington - to enjoy the various local attractions a car is recommended for your stay.

St Mellion is circa 12 miles north-west of Plymouth & 11 miles east of Liskeard, both of which have main-line stations. The nearest local rail station is Saltash (circa 5 miles). Main line & local train services are operated by First Great Western. The nearest airports are Newquay (42 miles) & Exeter (60 miles).


There are a number of delightful National Trust properties nearby including Cotehele, Lanhydrock and Antony House. Slightly further afield are the magnificent Lost Gardens of Heligan and the world-famous Eden Project. The region offers excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and the coastline. Many local estates and farms offer horse-riding. Plymouth is within easy reach offering good shops and many interesting places to visit including the Barbican & National Marine Aquarium.

Further Details:

Oakridge is well situated for access to a full range of local facilities including restaurants, pubs and shops.

There is a large new Waitrose supermarket only 10 mins by car which offers a full range of groceries and household goods. Local petrol station, shop and post office 5 mins by car.

Local farms offer fresh local produce such as eggs, clotted cream and milk pasties - do try The Pasty Shop(!) which is 5 mins by car on the way to Waitrose.

The Weary Friar public house is a local favourite serving wholesome food and a good selection of ales and is walk-able from Oakridge via quiet country lanes. Other delightful hostelries are located within a short drive.
