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. Some of the original art work on display in the chalet is for sale.

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!

The West Country region

Cornwall is a beautiful county with a wide variety of scenery including the spectacular, rugged North coast and more gentle coastal inlets of the South, the dramatic tors of Bodmin and beautiful stately homes with their fascinating gardens.

The climate is generally warm and pleasant and there are a wide variety of outdoor activities to pursue such as cycling, kayaking, kite surfing and golf. Other interesting places to visit include King Arthur's castle at Tintagel, the beautiful harbour of St Isaac or the Poldark mine.


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 fill the streets to enjoy this ancient Celtic festival with singing and dancing from dawn til dusk.

What a fabulous week! The accommodation was so clean is the first thing i can say. Its set in a great location for getting into Padstow and its perfect for families with young children like us to visit the beaches nearby.
It was literally a home from home with some lovely touches all round. We can't recommend it highly enough.
Will definitly be coming back!

"Great place in a perfect location!"

We had a lovely stay at Whimbrel! The chalet was very clean and had all the things we needed for our stay. It's a really easy drive to Padstow and we also made a visit to Port Isaac. We would highly recommend for any couple looking for a short break or even a family, there is plenty of space!

Really pleased you had a good time and hope to welcome you back soon.

"A home from home!"

What a welcoming and well prepared holiday home. Everything that we needed and more was provided and compared to other chalets this was certainly the best. Little touches like books, games, dvds and cds made all the difference as they are often the things that you forget. Padstow and the surrounding attractions were within easy reach...Would definitely stay again and recommend this place to anyone.

Great...glad you enjoyed all our added entertainment extras...we hope to welcome you back soon...with our 'returner's discount' of course!

"Getting away from it all in a beautiful part of the country"

Everything we needed was provided at the chalet, which was clean, tidy and comfortable. Beautiful part of the country with plenty of beaches to explore and interesting coastal towns to visit further afield.

"Excellent Chalet in ideal location"

Just like all of the comments in the visitors book said, it was a home away from home. The kitchen was excellent and well equipped. Lots of old books and games made it a proper holiday home. Plus, it was an excellent Launchpad for all of the beaches on the Atlantic coast and the always lovely Padstow.

Glad you had a good time in our cosy chalet-hope to welcome you back with a returners discount soon. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

"Home away from home"

The deluxe chalet came with all facilities and more than it said. It was cosy, yet spacious and fulfilled our needs. The owners were great before hand with answering questions and all follow up information.

Thanks for your booking. Glad you had a good stay.

"Home from home, very clean and comfortable."

The owners of this property were very helpful and quick to answer any emails and questions I had. The property was clean and homely and as we went out of season the site was very quiet and peaceful. Location was great only 6 miles from Padstow where we spent a lot of time.

Glad you had a good time and enjoyed Padstow-hope to welcome you back sometime !
