'Whimbrel' luxury two bedroom chalet
1 of 24'Whimbrel' luxury two bedroom chalet
Chalet -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
St Merryn, Padstow, Cornwall, England
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.

First time I've ever been to Cornwall and will most certainly go again. Booked the chalet because it had good reviews and was a good price. The pictures do not do the chalet justice. Chalet was much better then I could have ever hoped considering...More

About the neighbourhood
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....
