Why stay here ...

Merrose Farm Club Site is an immaculately kept, well-landscaped parkland location with a great feeling of open space and good views of the surrounding countryside. The caravan park is also conveniently close to a scenic coastal path for the family to explore.

If you're visiting the Truro area for the first time you have a surprise in store - the Roseland Peninsula is as pretty as its name. There are charming narrow lanes starred with flowers, quaint little fishing villages and cosy sheltered beaches. In summer, the warm climate brings dazzling splendour to local gardens. A day or two exploring some of the charming fishing villages within easy reach from the Merrose Farm Club Site is well worth it - places such as St Mawes, Portscatho, Portloe or Mevagissey are known for their quaint appeal. The Eden Project is also located nearby - as one of the UK's top gardens and conservation tourist attractions, this is also not to be missed. Quite simply, this caravan site puts nature's bounty on your doorstep. Onsite facilities include a playground and play area for children and a good-sized dog walk. A fish and chip van visits this site, please ask the site staff for details.

Second visit to this lovely site

This was our second visit to this site this year. Good approach with the traffic lights making access so easy. The staff are very friendly and when we inadvertently put our caravan on the tent pitch the lady warden was very polite when told me cannot put our caravan there saying it was probably her fault for not telling us which stopped us feeling idiots! Facilities were good very clean nice hot showers. Excellent dog walk in a field where you can let your pouch of the lead. Area is beautiful Portscatho to is a lovely Cornish village with sandy beach and short walk along coast path to the Hidden hut for tasty lunch. It will be on our list for another visit.

A brilliant site!

This is a hidden gem! Beautiful, spacious site. Generous pitches, clean facilities and friendly staff. A fair distance to big supermarkets so we pack accordingly as it's worth the drive. Quiet site but plenty of fun for the children in the park. A calm and friendly atmosphere. Will come here again and again. Wish we had stayed here longer instead of going to treamble valley afterwards, which was awful!

Merrose 2019

We have had multiple stays at Merrose this season, we are never let down or bored with this site, going back is always a pleasant refreshing experience. The wardens are always friendly & the site is always clean & well maintained throughout. The pitch sizes are good & the grassed area pitches are spacious. The standard is very high. Within our last stay we had a significant problem with the caravan leisure battery it’s not something we had ever experienced before. The wardens were incredible, very calming & very helpful in the process of us resolving the issue, also their experience & knowledge was fantastic & gratefully received. The visiting food vans throughout the week offer a nice treat & the site shop is well stocked & sells local produce. There are some stunning local places to visit & eat at Porthcurnick beach with the Hidden Hut, St Mawes, Portscatho & Portloe. The coastal walks are amazing. There is a lovely coffee shop close by Da Bara serves fantastic coffee, food, breads & cakes. There are some amazing National Trust places to visit within reasonable driving distance from the site. This site is suitable for all ages & there is some lovely things to do & see close by. It’s a site you can truly “switch-off”, unwind & enjoy the countryside surroundings. Thank you Merrose for a great 2019 caravanning!

Good location, lovely wardens but tired faciliites

We stayed on the site in August school summer holidays as the location worked for us. The site was nearly full and was peaceful, we stayed on the grass pitches between the play ground and play fields. The wardens were lovely and friendly and helpful. The kids playground is large and has lots of equipment for all ages and the play field was good too but on a slope that made cricket/football a challenge. The location was good for st mawes and the ferry to falmouth. We have been to many club sites and felt the other reviews were correct that the facilities (while always clean) were tired and paint flaking off and mould in places that they needed updating. So good quiet site in beautiful countryside just needs bit of investment in the facilities.

Our Favourite Site So Far!

We moved here after a horrendous one night experience in Looe. The wardens were so helpful and lovely, really welcomed us. The site is well spaced out with lovely countryside views and a stones throw from the beaches. It is so well kept, the wardens work constantly throughout the day keeping the site spotless. A pizza van and a fish & chip van visit the site which is great. It's a fair distance to the nearest shop so stock up with food before you go, the site shop is very well appointed for any essentials you forget. Recommend Pendower, Carne & Porthcurnick beaches. The view from St Anthony's Head is breathtaking. We love our stay at Merrose Farm.... We will be back!
