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 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.

An amazing and thrilling stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house with amazing views, modern interior - it is a lovely family holiday home. The kids loved the quiet estate road, as they are free to roam by themselves on their skateboards. We loved our stroll along the beach at Whitsand Bay, with a breathtaking coastline, finished off with a delicious lunch at the Cliff Top Cafe.

Great place to stay - Something suit everyone

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place this is!

We came for a family stay with three generations in tow.

A nice quiet spot with some lovely walks right on the doorstep.

Dad took advantage of the golf pass, which he loved. My wife and I used the leisure passes took our 5 month old to the swimming pool. The leisure complex has great facilities with a separate fitness pool and kids pool, as well as a spa and restaurant.

The lodge itself was clean and tidy with great facilities. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area was perfect for us. To top it off the owners couldn't be more accomdating. Looking forward to coming back here!

Great place to stay, good location and the spa is lovely!

  • 4 of 5

All the family really enjoyed their stay. It's set in a peaceful location away from the main roads. The living area has an open fire which is great on the chilly evenings and it really warms up quickly. We made use of the resort which has clean and well kept pools/sauna etc. The only negative was that the shower in one of the rooms constantly went from hot to cold and the internet speed was painfully slow but overall we were very happy with our stay here and would recommend it to others.

Attractive accommodation

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for half term and it was a nice play to stay and I am sure in the summer the outside areas would be lovely. There was a great view of the woods and up to one of St Mellion's golf courses and we were lucky to see two deer and lots of pheasants and rabbits which was fantastic for the children. The house comes with access to St Mellion's golf and leisure facilities but be warned when you collect the passes and property keys you will be asked for a £20 deposit in cash to ensure you return the leisure passes. I don't have a major issue with this but it would be nice to know in advance and I object to having to pay cash when I rarely carry it. The house is fully furnished and is an upside down house and if you stay in winter be careful to watch that the bedrooms don't get too hot and make sure the heating is off rather than timed as it comes on at very odd times and you end up getting too hot at night. Good to have wi-fi and a dishwasher. Everything very clean. I would recommend this for able bodied people but be warned if you have mobility issues there are steps from the car park and inside the stairs have two turns which is hard on the knees and once upstairs you do tend to do a lot of walking. This is a good house for a family of four to have a holiday.

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

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.

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.

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.
