Rosken Farm
St Merryn | Nr Padstow | Sleeps 10 in 2 cottages
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 SchoolWaddles and Puddleduck 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.

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 fully fitted kitchen and leading off to one side is a long dual aspect sitting / dining room with beamed ceiling, a pine dining suite and 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.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
