A wonderful family holiday

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Apr 2021via mobile
We had an absolutely wonderful week at Merlin Farm. The cottages are stylish and cosy, with beautiful views and the kitchen has everything we could ever need (inc for kids). Lots of trips to the beach in Mawgan Porth, lunches at the Merrymoor Inn, a speed boat trip at Padstow, coffees and fresh pizzas from Cornish Fresh in Mawgan Porth and glasses of wine in the cottage garden. We will be back. Only downside is by writing this review there is a risk our hidden gem will be fully booked for the next decade and we won’t be able to get in! 😉

          Myself and my wife stayed at the 1 bed studio apartment. It was amazing in every way. It was spotlessly clean and stocked with all that we needed (free pint of milk too). It was a 15 minute walk to the beach which makes it perfectly located for exploring as its right on the West Country path also. The owners kept us updated via email and checked we were ok during our stay. They also emailed to let us know we could arrive early if we wanted. COVID safe 100%. Towels were nice and fluffy and bedding very warm. Fire in the apartment gave it a very romantic feel. If I could give 6 stars I could.

          Room tip: I would imagine all rooms are spotless and have great views.

          My family and I visited Merlin farm in December. We really needed break and felt relaxed as soon as we arrived.
          Lucy and Darrel gave clear instructions about the cottage and lots of activity ideas. We know the Mawgan Porth area very well, but still felt we explored new areas this time.
          The camel trail bike ride was worth the effort with a pasty at Wadebridge for lunch!!
          We stayed in Porthcothen. The cottage is in an excellent location for some really nice walks. It has beautiful views, bath and log fire place. It’s clean, warm and comfortable with all things needed. Furniture, decor and accessories were a high standard and fitted the surroundings.
          Our children loved the animals, going out to greet them every morning. They cried when going home and leaving Horace and Holly!!
          Merlin Farm feels miles away from anywhere but in a close walking distance to the beach and woodland.
          Lucy and Darrel were available to ask questions to during our stay, but allowed us to be with ourselves otherwise.
          I would definitely return to Merlin Farm and recommend for solo, couples, families and friends.

          We had a lovely stay here, in Porthcothan cottage. Very well equipped, well designed, great views, brilliant location. Fab bathroom! Loved being able to walk down to the beach, to the shops and restaurants. Really good information and support. Great being able to get delicious thai food delivered, and Cornish Food box delivery good too. Fully recommend.

          We stayed in Daymer Cottage for a week with our dog. It was absolutely perfect for what we needed; warm, clean, plenty of hot water. The log burner at this time of year was an extra home from home comfort! The location was scenic and peaceful. We had many lovely beach and coastal path walks. I would happily come here again and recommend it as a great place to stay.

          We stayed the weekend in Daymer and it was absolutely bliss! Loved it! The place had a fireplace and a bath; luxury..! The studio has everything you need and the owners are super helpful, respond quickly and hospitable (thanks for the cornish cookies and milk by the way :)! The surroundings is awesome. We biked the camel trial on Sat (from Bodmin to Padstow) and walked from the cottage to Watergate Bay which was heaven. Finish the day with a sundowner at the Watergate Bay hotel with a cold beer and seafood. What more can you wish for...! Also, highly recommend the Prawn on the Lawn in Padstow for lunch. Thanks Lucy for an amazing stay. We’ll come back soon. This cottage is fab for any time of the year as it is so close to the beach.
