St Merryn, Padstow, Cornwall, England
Our beautiful holiday home at St Merryn, five miles from Padstow is set in 27 acres of landscaped parkland at Atlantic Bays Holiday Park ( previously known as Point Curlew) . The recently refurbished estate facilities include a shop, launderette and bar.

We pride ourselves on keeping the chalet pristine clean - it is our holiday base too! The accommodation is designed to be a modern, comfortable, relaxing base from which to explore the delights of Cornwall. We are happy to take short bookings within a Saturday-Saturday period, but not across two weeks.

An ideal location for outdoor lovers, the spectacular Atlantic coastline is only five minutes drive away with opportunities for cycling, surfing, walking, horse-riding, golf and sight-seeing. The quaint fishing village of Padstow offers interesting shops and places to eat and drink incl...

About the neighbourhood
St Merryn is the nearest village to our chalet. It has shops and a deli where you can buy delicious freshly baked Cornish pasties! There are several pubs and take-aways locally, as well as a garage and post office.

There are seven beautiful beaches nearby; the famous 'Seven Bays for Seven Days' and easy access to some great walking and cycling on the North Cornwall coast path, Camel Trail and Saint's Way.

In Padstow you can take a boat trip around the bay including a visit to Puffin island and you could take the opportunity to try to land a fresh mackerel! If you are unsuccessful there are several fine fishmongers along the quay where you can buy beautiful fresh fish and seafood.

The most spectacular event of the year is the 'Padstow Obby Oss' to celebrate May Day....
