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.

A Wonderful Site!

Last month we stayed a Merrose Farm for a second time. It is beautifully maintained by the ever helpful Staff. The main attractions for us are the location, and of course the most excellent dog exercise field, which is kept in pristine condition which enables one to exercise an active dog in compete safety. This aspect is very important to us, so we always make sure the "dog walk on site" means an area such as that at Merrose Farm. We expect to return there next year.

Peace and quiet in an unspoilt area

Our favourite site but do not go there if you like commercialised areas. It is so beautiful and natural with loads of walks and plenty of places to visit. The wardens were wonderful I broke my wrist on the first day of my holiday and they couldn't do enough for us, an especial thank you to Steve who was the warden on duty when my accident occurred he was so thoughtful and caring. Looking forward to returning next year!!!

A Lovely Stay

I had not been to this site for many years and hopefully will not be many years before I return. A lovely site and so well situated for easy access to so many beautiful and interesting places. The coastal path is easily accessed by just crossing the road and the King Harry Ferry is nearby aiding road travel. The site is spaciously laid out, beautifully kept and very attractive. Staff were welcoming and helpful, creating a relaxed and respectful atmosphere.

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!
