Recently refurbished, this is a modern, fully equipped, dog friendly, comfortable three bed bungalow, in a quiet cul de sac location. Linen and towels for up to six people are included in the price, 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), as well as a cloakroom (off the kitchen), and a wet room area in the garage. The showers in the main bathroom and the ensuite are both being fully refurbished during the 18/19 winter period. The wet room area has been designed to allow sand to be washed off surfers and their 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 most times of the year, with a Saturday changeover. Both the minimum stay and the changeover day may be changed where we have late availability. Free broadband and wifi with unlimited usage 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 where you will find (amongst other things) a convenience store, a surfer's store, Chinese and fish and chip takeaways, Rafferty's restaurant, a Malcolm Barnecutt's bakery, the Farmers' Arms pub and a petrol station. Rick Stein's Cornish Arms pub/eatery is a five minute walk in the direction of Padstow, plus it's a short drive to the many fantastic beaches in this part of Cornwall. Our favourite beaches are Treyarnon (particularly good for body boarding when the tide is coming in), Constantine (great for early morning and evening walks), Harlyn Bay, Trevone and Tregirls/Hawkers Cove (accessed by walking north out of Padstow, past the war memorial)
There are lots and lots of other fantastic things to do in the area, including the karting circuit and Kernow chocolate shop at St Erval, the national lobster hatchery in Padstow, Camel Creek adventure park near Wadebridge, the birds of prey centre in St Columb, Flowrider watersports at St Columb Major, surfing tuition at Harlyn Bay, making your own glass sculptures at Jo Downs (Launceston) and the Atlantic Glass Studio (Bude), cycling to Wadebridge (and if you have the energy, Bodmin) along the Camel estuary (bikes can be hired at the start of the trail)) and vineyards tours and wine tasting at Trevibban Mill (St Issey) and Camel Valley (between Wadebridge and Bodmin). We have done them all!
Springtide 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 some of those weeks may be released during the year once our own holiday plans become clearer.
