Location a little odd. Small cul de sac on what seems to be a residential park homes type of complex. You need car to get to beaches, which is such a shame for those that enjoy walking. Accommodation not luxurious. Way overpriced. Disappointed

I booked this through Travel Zoo . We did arrive early in the pouring rain and thought the whole check in procedure was shambolic. The reception was closed when we arrived and there was no information in the window to say that they would open later or whatever. The small print tells you where to pick up your keys. We...

Clean, modern, quiet, fully fitted kitchen, private parking in front of villas, but all bed mattresses knackered. Good location, just some building works at the entrance. Padstow 3 miles away, you will need a car, no footpaths.

We stayed for 4 nights here with our young daughter. The property itself is modern two bedroom really spacious and had everything you'd need. Fully functioning kitchen. It was getting a little tired in places probably due redecorating but nothing major. Location by car was good for Newquay, Padstow, bude etc but the walk into st merryn on foot wasn't...

We stayed for 4 nights (2 adults, 3 kids). We paid £260 per night and for that we expected extreme luxury which we didn't get. The villa was much larger than expected which was its biggest plus point and the kitchen was lovely. Great to have a dishwasher but I couldn't use the washing machine as there wasn't a rotary...

A lovely, clean and well equipped villa and being blessed with great weather, overall, we had a great holiday. However, the Cornish cottages website we booked through said the villa had sky sports and a tumble dryer which it did not! One side of the mattress in the double bedroom was virtually unusable though by an adult resulting in my...

We were very pleased when we arrived at Bay Retreat Villas in late June. It was a clean, spacious house. Everything we needed was there & plenty of car parking space & outside area. There was a small shop on site but restaurant & other amenities not open until July. Pubs & restaurants in St Merryn. Enjoyed a very comfortable...

Lovely clean villas with all the homes comforts that you need. Excellent spacious property. You do need a car to get to Padstow (3 miles). Some building improvements going on but dont let that put you off, there is no noise and if you are out all day, there is no big deal! I would recommend staying here for the...
