Rental Home
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. Our chalet is always well kept and this year we have replaced the bedroom carpets and all the beds. 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, s...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) .

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 including Rick Stein's famous restaurant. Slightly further afield you can enjoy lunch at Fifteen; Jamie Oliver's restaurant at Watergate Bay and then walk off your meal at any number of beautiful gardens such as the Eden Project or Lost Gardens of Heligan. The Tate at St Ives is great for art lovers and there are plenty of historic landmarks to visit. The magic of Cornwall as a holiday destination is that come rain or shine, there is always something to do whether you are nine or ninety!More

About the neighborhood
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. Crowds of people fil...
