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.

Great First time at Merrose Farm Caravan Club.April 2021.

Having not been away because of lockdown we took the opportunity to try somewhere which was different. Cornwall had been on our agenda for some time. Picked Merrose on the reviews left by other members and was extremely pleased with the out come. Long drive down from Buckinghamshire but well worth it. As you approach the site there is a set of Traffic Lights which means you don’t meet any other vehicles on the way in. The Site is large but the way it is set up you don’t feel overwhelmed. Clean and Tidy and Wardens really helpful. No information in the Information Hut due to COVID so get your local maps from the Tourist Information in St Mawes. Office is closed but maps in clear containers outside front door. We stayed for a week and visited quite a few places which were really easy to get to. Didn’t get to see all of this area so will have to go back again. Stayed on pitch 7 was not able to get Tv but other pitches would be great. Have internet from Club Site and found it very helpful. Bus Stop at top of road which is hail and ride but as we tow a car was not required. Site 10 Wardens 10 Weather 10 except for high winds. Location 10. FYI came back to Buckingham via Truro on the A390, A39 ,A30, M4 much better roads. 😉 Enjoy

What a lovely site with acres of space

We stayed at Merrose Farm for 6 night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay ,site spotlessly clean, wardens really friendly and helped us stay healthy and virus free with the precautions the club had put in place during these torrid times. Lovely walks on the side roads took us into Porthscatho of three days stopping off at the Hidden Hut for refreshments, I can recommend their pasties. We took the bus on two days to travel into Truro and St Mawes, the bus stop is right outside the top of the driveway which gives you access into the site. We could not fault the site Fish & Chips available on Friday Pizzas Wednesday. We will be back later this year if they have space

Well located

We prefer smaller sites than Merrose Farm but stayed here due to the location. We were able to find a tucked away corner that made the site feel much smaller. Nice level pitches and the facilities were very clean with a good Covid Secure system. The wardens were welcoming and informative. It is worth a walk down to the Hidden Hut for lunch although it does get very busy. Worth the wait though as the food and the views are excellent. The walk takes in a farmshop that stocked a good (but expensive) range of treats as well as fresh fish and meat. The pizza van was there during our stay. Really excellent pizza with a good thin crust. It gets very busy so it is worth getting your order in for the time that you want to eat. It was very popular.

A firm favourite and surprisingly busy

We've been coming to this site for years and always find it charming, quiet, well-maintained and a lovely place to stay. The facilities are rarely used by us but the Covid arrangements seem to be well-considered and effective. The WiFi was a bit of a problem for the first couple of days but then the Airangel engineers visited and all was well. The Pizza Van (Wednesday) and the Fish and Chip van (Friday) are both worth supporting and provide excellent choices. The local pubs at St Mawes were heaving given current staycations but our favourite - the Old Quay Inn at Devoran - was fairly quiet and is definitely worth a visit - they have a stepped terrace back garden which is a sun-trap and has about a dozen 4-6-seats private areas. The Dog walk is ideal, the site is big enough to make the post-dinner walk around it (several circuits) worthwhile, and the entry traffic light is ALWAYS red when we arrive! A long way to go but worth it -
