“The Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Just returned from a fantastic week at Merlin Farm. Everything about the cottage was well-thought out and made for a truly pleasurable stay.

A beautiful setting overlooking the hills of the N. Cornwall coastline with Mawgan Porth a 15 minute walk away.

All elements of the cottage were high quality right down to the cutlery. Our 2yr old and 8mth old kids were well catered for with the necessary fireguards / cots / stairgates as well as a large box of toys to keep our son occupied for the week.

Couldn't recommend Merlin Farm highly enough and can't wait for a return visit.

We are retired Australians visiting with family 4 adults and 2 children in 3 bedroom unit. Dishwasher washing machine and dryer appreciated. Visited the beach 3 days wet and cold 2 days the upstairs lounge and wood heater were great. Four TVs were good for us and kids. View across the valley was pleasant but nornal to us. Will visit the Royal Cormwall Agricultural show tomorrow as it runs thursday to saturday. The local shop has everything you need and more. Good base to visit St Ives and other places. Car parking at the beach shop area about £4 for 3 hours. The take away fish shop and hotel icecream shops all have good range of takeaway. No petrol available here nearest about 4 miles. We enjoyed our stay and can recommend this place as its quiet and safe for kids as there is no road traffic but you need a car with GPS to save time visiting places.

Room Tip: Drive off main road very steep and only 3 passing spots on the 400 m drive. Large stones a problem f...

We were fortunate enough to have a week’s stay at Merlin Farm at the point the weather gave us a week of sun and 80+ degree temperatures. The accommodation is of a very high quality with every appliance and utensil you could ever need. We stayed in the cottage Trevone and it was a great experience, much to our pleasure it met the high expectation from the great Merlin Farm website. I would recommend Merlin Farm for couples or families and you can select the accommodation that best suits from the web site. The owners were very friendly and welcomed us shortly after arrival. Our 3 year old son loved having a choice of 3 beds in the second bedroom and the high ceilings and large amount of windows meant even in the high heats it was comfortable. We will definitely go back and recommend the accommodation to our friends, this is reflected in other reviews below.

We stayed in Daymer, the smallest of the cottages, a converted stable with one main room, kitchen and bathroom. All the fittings are of the highest quality and all rooms are bright and beautiful. The location is great - particularly if you are planning on visiting Rick Stein's restaurants in Padstowe (about 8 miles away) or Jamie Oliver's 'Fifteen' which is only a mile or so away and walkable along the cliffs if you are so inclined. We couldn't have asked for more and couldn't recommend a stay here more highly. Brilliant.

Just returned from Merlin Farm and felt compelled to write a review, This is our second visit and will return again. Treyarnon barn has three good sized bedrooms which worked so well for my daughter and her husband and my son and also a small dog.The detail to comfort was excellent,the beds so comfortable and spotlessly clean everywhere, it was kept well heated and also a log fire could be lit. Lucy and Darryl and are so welcoming and deserve praised for their hard work and attention to detail.If you love Cornwall and want to feel relaxed, please go there.

As a couple plus wonderful yet rowdy toddler, we are always on the look out for accommodation that gives us some contemporary me-time and yet still manages to tick the family friendly box.

Constantine cottage at Merlin Farm was really all we needed for a fabulous week long break. Super-comfy beds, super bathroom, wonderful open plan living space, and just enough farm animals to convince our son he was getting a true country experience.

Mawgan Porth beach was not far away at all and a beautiful epic space, perfect for sandcastles and splashing, and a few handy convenience stores if you run short of anything.

Lucy and Darrel have though of everything and seemed to be always on hand yet unobtrusive. Some thoughtful touches in the (Smeg) fridge including some bubbly and Easter eggs really added to my birthday week!

We used their suggested babysitter Dee on several nights who we couldn't have been happier with. Recommended if you want a non child trip to some of the wonderful restaurants nearby.

What a lovely place to go to, I can't imagine anyone not enjoying themselves in such a great corner of Cornwall.

For once we are all WELL RESTED!

Room Tip: Fabulous babysitter - ask for Dee If you get a chance pop along to the day spa at the Scarlet (down...
