We rented the 3 bedroom cottage for one week. I was immediately struck by the number and quality of the conveniences. Everything you had at home was available here. We ran in to the (friendly) owner though this was only by chance. You are left in peace at all times. The location is very good though you need a car...

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your week in Treyarnon Cottage and pleased that you would recommend us. So sorry you felt the entrance road was badly maintained, unfortunately we do not own that section of the farm lane. Hope to see you again, Lucy & Darrel

We have just returned from a week's stay in the Constantine Cottage at Merlin Farm, and we absolutely loved it. It was perfect - the cottage was everything we wanted and more, especially for an energetic 23 month old! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and everything was provided for a baby/toddler - the cot in...

Stayed in Daymer cottage and it is a perfect location for a couple and a small dog. For some reason we had the whole complex to ourselves so can't really say whether it would be better or worse with other people around. The only downside I can think of is that the road leading to the cottages is quite narrow...

Thank you for your review. It's great that you were lucky enough to experience the peace and tranquility of Merlin Farm all to yourselves! Generally it's pretty quiet here even when all six cottages are occupied. Hope to see you again, Lucy and Darrel

We have just returned from a week at Merlin Farm Cottages and it is such a beautiful place. We took two dogs and it is perfect for countryside walks and walks along the beach.

Superb accommodation in idyllic setting. Beautiful immaculately maintained home, which was stylish and spacious, yet comfortable and cosy. We loved it the minute we walked through the door, and it just kept getting better-it has the 'wow' factor. Peaceful location with stunning countryside views, yet only few minutes walk to the beach and local pub/restaurants. Perfect place to 'escape from...
