Merlin Farm Cottages, Mawgan Porth

Mawgan Porth Cornwall TR8 4DN 01637 860 236

We say

Its six holiday properties comprising of a studio apartment, two high-spec barn conversions and three eco cottages, Merlin Farm is surrounded by bountiful countryside, yet is just a short walk from Mawgan Porth beach. The centrepiece is the trio of eco cottages, flaunting a well-deserved 5-star rating for combining sustainable design (ground-source heating, solar-heated water, green electricity and bamboo bath robes) with luxurious living standards (wood-burners, wet-rooms, waterfall taps, Ren toiletries and local artwork). The contemporary interiors have retained a traditional, rustic farmhouse feel, emphasised by chunky oak furniture and oak beams taken from the original barns. The sun floods in through bi-folding doors, and rolling green views beyond the private gardens trick you into believing you’re ensconced in tranquil countryside, despite being only 10-minutes’ trot from a surfing beach. The cottages are also a short hop from many of North Cornwall’s gems including Watergate Bay, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, Bedruthan Steps and Padstow. All the cottages are decked out with baby-friendly gear, from stair gates to baby baths, and young children will love grooming Horace the donkey. Dogs welcome – except in the summer holidays.

Home from home in Cornwall. ★★★★★

Merlin Farm and the family (both 2 legs and 4) are both very welcoming and comfortable, with the addition of the Eco cottages this is truly one of the best places my husband and I have stayed in. We have spent the last nine years at Merlin, and found so truly wonderful gem in and around Mawgan Porth and local areas. Would highly recomend Merlin Farm to anyone.

Great for families!! ★★★★★

Eco-chic funky farm, great for families and couples on the north coast of Cornwall. Great beacuse it's just a short walk to Mawgan Porth Beach, and close to Rick Stein's restaurants at Padstow and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay.
