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!

Location description from owner

The England 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

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.

“Peaceful and very quiet”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2016

Whimbrel is a lovely chalet set in a very quiet position with a very comfortable sitting room and well equipped kitchen. It was very easy to book and the owner was extremely helpful.

Glad you had a great time.

“Very enjoyable”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

My Wife and I travelled from the Midlands to Cornwall with our 3 year old son and arrived at Whimbrel at approximately 4pm. After the painless check in at reception we parked up near our accommodation for the week and started to transfer our goods to Whimbrel. Upon opening the door for the first time we both said wow and was pleasantly surprised by what was available to us.We both thought it was home from home and there was everything there you would need(even washing machine and iron if you were desperate!!) apart from what we were advised to take with us (bedding covers,towels and tea towels). We soon settled in and started to plan our week out. Our son soon settled in as well and was very happy playing outside on the large grass area. The site itself was very well maintained (we were aware that there was some development work taking place on the complex) and situated within a stones throw of local areas, particularly Harlyn Bay and the quaint village of Padstow. The owners of the chalet were very helpful and all in all we were very impressed with Whimbrel and would recommend to anyone. Hoping to return very soon.

Thank you for your lovely feedback...so glad you had a great time and enjoyed our chalet.

“Fabulous weekend break in Padstow!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2014

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights in Whimbrel Chalet. I can’t recommend it enough. The chalet is a clean, bright, comfy and is a great size. Perfect for what we wanted. It has one double bedroom and the other bedroom has 2 single beds. It would be perfect for a family of 4. The kitchen is lovely and very equip. We cooked in twice and we had everything we needed. The bathroom is also a good size with a good quality shower. The site is in a perfect location, situated a 10 minute drive from Padstow. You can also walk it in about an hour, which is a very pleasant walk. Padstow is a beautiful, quaint harbour with lovely restaurants. We ate at Paul Ainsorth’s Number 6 restaurant which was gorgeous and Rojano’s Italian which was delicious, the pizzas were amazing. Lots of lovely tea shops to visit during the day. And of course several pasty shops, as you can’t visit Cornwall without sampling one. We enjoyed ours sat on a bench taking in the beautiful view of Padstow harbour. One day we caught the short ferry ride across to the other side of Padstow. Everything you need is close to hand, there is a Tesco that is about 5-10 minutes from the site, so perfect for any essentials that you may need. As our trip was in October we did have one day of heavy rain and we didn’t fancy going out in it. But we were more than happy to stay in and relax watching DVDs, reading and enjoying the Chalet itself. The owners were really helpful when booking. I would thoroughly recommend it here and definitely will be returning.

Thanks for your great review-we've enjoyed those pizzas too and the trip over to Rock on the ferry is fun. Hope you'll go and stay at Whimbrel again. :)

“Lovely Weekend”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2014

The chalet had absolutely everything we needed for our stay, very clean and well equipped. The site itself was very quiet probably due to the time of year, which was fine. Difficult to find the site at first due to it being on an unmarked road, although it was signposted from the Main Road. 5 miles from Padstow and near to Wadebridge and Newquay so ideal location. No Wifi on the site and poor signal for mobiles but we survived. Highly recommended hope to be able to return again next year.

Really pleased you had such a good weekend in the chalet-thank you for leaving it so clean. Hope to welcome you back soon.

“Home From Home”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

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!

Thanks for the great review -so glad you had a good time at the chalet. look forward to hearing from you again and offering you a discount on a repeat booking of course...just drop me an email.

“Fantastic home from home”

Beautiful chalet in a perfect location for exploring Cornwall's Newquay, Padstow and surrounding areas. Owners can't do enough to help. Will definitely be going back.

“Great place in a perfect location!”

Reviewed 12 May 2014

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!”

Reviewed 12 May 2014

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”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2014

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”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2013

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.
