Description from owner

Description

Merrydown Cottage is a 200 year old traditional cornish cob house which has been converted from 3 small cottages into a bright and comfortable 3 bedroom home sleeping up to 6 people. The cottage is spacious, but cosy with many period features. It sits in the heart of St Mabyn village where you can buy your daily supplies at the local post office stores, dine at the newly-refurbished, popular village pub - both within a couple of minutes' walk - and take walks across the open countryside which surrounds the village.

The cottage is stylishly decorated to a high standard. On the ground floor there is an entrance porch, cloakroom, wetroom, large kitchen/breakfast room, dining room and living room. The stairs lead from the dining room to the first floor where a corridor leads to 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. A utility room on the ground floor provides additional facilities with useful storage for boots and clothing after a day spent on the beach or walking.

“Stunning cottage in beautiful village”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2016

We stayed at merrydown cottage after a recommendation from a friend and were totally blown away when we arrived. The cottage was beautiful and the photos we'd seen really didn't do it justice. On arrival we had freshly made scones, clotted cream, chocolate and bubbly which was such a lovely touch. The cottage itself was so well equipped we didn't want for anything. The garden was perfect for two young children and the village pub, local shop and 16th century church were a stones through away. There was also a cider farm just down the road selling the local brew. It really was a fantastic stay in Cornwall and would not hesitate recommending merrydown cottage as the perfect place to stay. Thanks to Jo and Tim.

“Everything you need for a relaxing holiday”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

Our second stay at Merrydown Cottage and it was great to be back..! A beautiful, homely retreat in our favourite part of Cornwall and only a short drive from all the places we like to visit. All of the family necessities have been thought of (including dishwasher, washer/dryer etc) so we could just walk in, make ourselves at home and relax. For us personally the completely enclosed back garden gave us huge peace of mind. I can't think of anything you would want to change - it's perfect.!

“Relaxing country style”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2015

We have a fantastic time at the cottage and thanks to Tim and Jo for their great service and help. The cottage is in a great location and very cozy and stylish. We tasted a variety of beaches in the area and were not disappointed. We will definitely be back to merry down cottage and look back on our stay with great happiness.

“Perfect!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2015

Merrydown Cottage was exactly what we imagined. A perfect house, gorgeous location, the great St Maybn Inn just down the road with really good food and very friendly staff. Tim and Jo have taken such care to decorate the house like a home - not a rental property. It was difficult to leave! The cottage is warm in winter, has everything you need and felt so cosy. Beds were super comfy. Village is nice and quiet, very little traffic. A good little village shop just around the corner. I want to go back in the summer as I can just imagine how lovely the garden would look. Lots to see and do around the area including Rough Tor, Boscastle, St Austell and walking on the coast.

“Perfect holiday location and perfect cottage!”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2013

This is the third time we have stayed at Merrydown Cottage and we always have a fantastic time whatever the weather as it is a warm and welcoming cottage, beautifully kitted out with everything you could need for a Cornish holiday at any time of year. The decor and furniture is perfect and the beds are extremely comfortable. The local pub has recently changed hands and it's a great place to stroll to for a pint and a meal. The local post office sells a good selection of groceries and you can even pop in there for a coffee! We've borrowed the bikes that come with the cottage and cycled along the Camel trail but mostly just enjoy visiting the beaches and restaurants that are all within an easy drive.

“Classy Cottage”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

The cottage has a large back garden which is dead handy for the kids, as well as a gardener who leaves you fresh runner beans picked from the same garden as a nice surprise when you get back from a day out! The cottage itself is large, and is maintained and decorated to a very high standard. I've been to around 4 cottages now in the west country and this is by far the best. Would definetly use again.
