We have just returned from a week at the Constantine eco-lodge and I cannot fault the entire operation. We were made to feel at home and able to relax from the instant we arrived. A text message is sent when the lodge is ready which is a great touch especially as we had travelled a long way and were keen...

Lovely products in the bathroom and a personalised welcome letter also made...

This was our third year at Merlin farm -we have stayed in 3 different properties. When holidaying with a child this place is second to none - all equipment is provided and there is a real attention to child safety with stair gates etc. The animals are a huge hit - and many thanks to Lucy for arranging a special...

We have just returned from a week's stay at Merlin Farm. The moment we drove down the rugged path leading down into the area we knew it was going to be perfect. The view from where we parked our car was just stunning. Beautiful countryside and lovely happy animals roaming the fields neighing and clucking (not at the same time!)....

Just home after a week in Daymer cottage. It exceeded all of our expectations. Despite warnings that it was quite compact we had plenty of space for the 2 of us and our 2 dogs. The enclosed garden area is rare in this type of property and we find it very hard to fault. The location is terrific if you...

We have just returned from our second family holiday at Merlin Farm. The cottages are imaginatively designed with 1st class home comforts (I'm fussy and like a real home from home) and I can't rate this place highly enough. Mawgan Porth beach is a short stroll away down a woodland track and gives easy access to coastal walks or a...

We rented the 3 bedroom cottage for one week. I was immediately struck by the number and quality of the conveniences. Everything you had at home was available here.
