First time to St Minver, and overall extremely pleased and can not wait to book for next year.
Lots of positive points to make, but lets just start with two niggles. We stayed in a Mulberry Caravan, which was listed as Centrally Heated - which it is, but we expected radiators; in fact it was blown air heating. We did not use the heating, it looked a little dusty, and being Asthmatic, didn't want to spoil the holiday by testing it ! Secondly, the Mulberry is about 8 years old, and showing signs of age in the bathroom area. So, I guess we picked the wrong model !
That said, the rest is all positive.
Friendly and fast check in, ALL the staff (poolside, bar, restaurant, maintenance and site manager) were extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing too much trouble for them to help with.
The caravan was spotlessly clean, beds made on arrival. Mattress and pillows comfortable.
Location - a quiet site, on an old manor estate, caravans situated amongst tree. We were right next to swimming pool and a stones throw from entertainment. Some beautiful beaches in the area, Rock on the Camel Estuary, Polzeath for surfers, Padstow to name a few. There are lots of cycling routes in the area, and cycle shops for hiring.
The swimming pool and changing facilities are clean and looked newly fitted out.
The kids entertainment, was the usual Sid and Lizzie show, which my son always enjoys. Bingo follows, then light entertainment either by the staff or visiting guests. The club room was very quite when we went end of June, but I understand it gets busier a peak times.
We ate in the restaurant three times, every time the food was piping hot and as described. the best meal for us was the Monday night Steak offer .. two meals and a bottle of while for £25. The steak was delicious :-)
The nearest shops are in Wadebridge, just a few miles away. There is a Co-Op, Boots, Lidl and a few smaller local shops. Slightly out of town, off the A39 there is a Tesco's and "Two for One"
Marston's pub which offers good value, pub grub.
Well done St Minver for helping us have a great holiday.
