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...
Virtually a sister cottage to Waddles having been reclaimed from the same single storey barn and similar in style, Wagtail offers comfortable accommodation with great character. Entered from the parking area in front of the cottage, a side pedestrian gate and level concrete path lead to the rear where there is a small enclosed garden with patio area and lawn.
A stable door opens to a useful porch with coat pegs and an inner glazed door leads into a central dining room with pine table and chairs and an adjacent brick archway into a fully fitted kitchen. To one side, an open arch leads into a spacious beamed sitting room with original features and lounge seating overlooking the garden with wide views of the countryside beyond.
There are two bedrooms accessed from the hallway; a family room with a double and a single bed and the master bedroom with a king-size double. A shower room W.C. with hand basin completes the accommodation.
