Experience - The Area...
About four miles from the picturesque fishing harbour of Padstow and less than a ten minute drive from the beautiful North Cornish coast with its famous Seven Bays for Seven Days, Rosken Farm is set in wonderful countryside just outside the village of St Merryn. This group of individually renovated stone cottages are set around a courtyard each benefiting from its own enclosed garden with the added bonus of a shared tarmac outdoor play area with badminton, skittles, basketball and other open air games available.
Accessed via a narrow farm lane and surrounded by fields which visitors are welcome to mindfully explore provided they observe the "country code", there are also riding stables close by who offer day/evening boarding for dogs on their 15 acre farm. Trevose Golf Club and the lovey sandy beaches of Harlyn Bay, Constantine, Trevone and Treyarnon are all within three miles and St Merryn village, 1.5 miles, has a selection of local shops, pubs, and licensed restaurants.
Guests staying at any of these properties can claim a £5 discount off the green fee at the Merlin Golf Club (Mawgan Porth), a 20% discount off green fees at Mullion Golf Club (Cury, Helston) and discounts are also available at Bowood Park Golf Club (Lanteglos, Camelford). £5 off if you book 2 lessons per person with Waves Surf School. The cottages each have their own character and are a favourite for families and friends who wish to holiday together but benefit from independent accommodation. There is ample parking space on-site.
Stay - The Accommodation...
As the name suggests, this comfortable barn conversion is set to one side of the working farmyard and former duck pond and is the only two storey cottage in the Rosken Farm family. Set in a walled and gated patio garden with an enclosed tarmac parking area, the cottage looks out over both the inner courtyard and to the surrounding fields at the rear.
The front door opens directly into a newly fitted kitchen and leading off to one side is a long dual aspect sitting / dining room with beamed ceiling, a pine dining suite and comfortable lounge furniture overlooking the garden. In one corner of the living room, carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor landing where there are two cottage style bedrooms and a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath.
There is a master bedroom with king-size double and a family room with a double and single bed, both enjoying far reaching countryside views. A stable door from the dining area leads out via a useful porch to an enclosed garden at the rear with a picnic table on the patio, a small raised lawn at one end with rural views and a side gate leading to the drive.
