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.

Beautifully Located Site

Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site
The site is set in a beautiful location with plenty of interesting coastal and inland walks directly accessible Short journeys bring you to excellent beaches , interesting villages and the County's capital Truro Our visit was in July when the site was very busy. The only available pitches when we arrived were located in an 'overspill ' field which was very exposed to the elements and pretty basic. This was a disappointment particularly as we had booked many months before

An absolute gem

Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site
We have been lucky enough to have had a seasonal pitch at Merrose Farm Friday for April to November 2021. We have had an amazing stay. Truly fantastic site and wonderful location. The first thing to say is that Tracey and Keith, as managers, do a fantastic job keeping the site in tip top condition. Not only are they truly brilliant at their job but have made our stay that extra bit more special. Paul, Carol, Paul and Allison have been their assistants this year and have all been brilliant too. We have got to know them all so well and it’s felt like having friends to chat with whenever we want to stop them doing their work (sorry!) and they certainly all work so hard for the guests’ benefit. The grounds are well kept, and the facilities are kept beautifully clean. You could ask for no more. They have, in our opinion, an uphill struggle with people that can’t ensure their dogs foul in the proper area (special field provided) but do everything with a smile on their faces. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you for absolutely everything from your kindness to your chocolates and t-towel loan! Unfortunately you won’t get Lord and Lady next year but, who knows, maybe the year after xx

Staff to the rescue

Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site
During a September 2021 stay, we had a night of torrential rain leading us to be stuck on a grass pitch ( we had been warned)!! The morning we were due to vacate the pitch to go to the Eden project (Timed Ticket )!!, we found we were unable to get traction and were stuck in the mud with the front wheel spinning- not wanting to damage the pitch , I duly sent the wife running to the reception for assistance. Without further ado four strapping guys were on hand to lay their grass grid pavers and with combined effort managed to push us , until we got enough grip to get us to the nearest metaled track. We cannot thank them enough for their speedy assistance and their pleasant attitude as they came to our rescue. Merrose Farm site is in a great location for local tourist spots, we had a very peaceful stay and enjoyed pleasant views. Well done team!

Will be staying again

Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site
I have rated peace and quiet 5 stars but this would only be out of season, everything else on this site to me is perfect . The dog walk is excellent if you take your thrower with you . We have stayed on this site many times over the years and it never dissapoints . The new team this year were helpful and friendly. The only downside and this applies to all sites the speed limit is 5MPH please keep to this its for the safety of us all

It would take some site to beat this one

Merrose Farm Caravan Club Site
It would take some site to beat this one. We stayed here in a motorhome during late September and found everything to be most satisfactory – reminding us of the reasons why it is worthwhile being a member of this club. The wardens were very helpful and friendly. They even without fuss amended a booking for another site we were travelling to as the website wouldn’t allow the alteration. All facilities were excellent and there is a superbly equipped children’s play area. Fish and chips arrive each week although we had to wait one hour owing to the queue and popularity. There is also a weekly pizza delivery but which was cancelled during our stay. Satellite TV reception and BT mobile phone reception was excellent as was the club Wi-Fi. Most pitches appear to be level and are generously proportioned. Just outside the site entrance there is a bus stop and hourly bus service into Truro and on the other side of the road a bus stop giving hourly service into St Mawes which has some lovely cafés and restaurants together with a few other nice craft shops and numerous ferries – one of which is the passenger ferry over to Falmouth. This particular service runs every half hour. Another ferry goes direct to the National Trust garden at Trelissick. There is a lovely and pretty easy walk from the site, passing through a farm (with a lovely shop) and then to the scenic south-west coastal path leading south to Porthcurnick beach and The Hidden Hut café well known for a great menu and refreshments (only outside seating – and good toilets). From there the path continues for a short distance to Portscatho which has a lovely atmosphere, a few shops, gallery, pub and harbour together with a superb beach and great swimming. We had a most enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this site.
