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.

Very Enjoyable Stay

Stayed here in October, for majority of the time weather was just right, but we are in England so did have some rain. The site was in a good location for me, visited Perranporth, fabulous beach, really windy but the dog loved it. Also visited St Anthony Head,and St Agnes Bay. The wardens were lovely and extremely hard working, they didn't seem to stop. I felt very Covid safe on site, the showers were clean and hot. The block itself was always warm and I never had to queue. I had my own band too. The bins were emptied regularly, I don't know how many times a day. The dog exercise field was great, nicely enclosed, safe and large enough for my dog to have a bit of exercise. It was great to have sanitiser at the gate to the dog field. Look forward to returning here.

Superbly manicured and quiet site

Arrived last weekend to a warm and friendly welcome from lady behind Covid-safe screen. Had great choice of pitches from which to choose. The photos don’t do this site justice as it’s actually way more interesting with varying levels and trees...better than the boring flat car park sites that are now prevalent on many CAMC sites. The on-site dog walk (fenced field) is the best I’ve ever seen. Apart from your own garden, where else could you legitimately let your dogs off the lead to roam free in the dark! The dog field is immaculately kept as are the site grounds. We didn’t use the block facilities but the motorhome service points were plentiful and clean. Hand sanitizers were aplenty. Great work Wardens, we had a fantastic stay and were so chuffed to have enjoyed staying on your ‘labour of love’ site. Thank you.

Very happy campers!😀

We have just had four nights here. One of our favourite sites. All the staff are friendly,helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The site was looking great, not easy in the autumn weather. They work very hard. We didn’t use the facilities,preferring to use our own. But, I’m sure they were up to the usual high standard. We felt perfectly safe during this pandemic and the staff had everything in place. Big cheer to Macky,Jane ,Scott and Mel.

First visit with Covid Regulations in place

Last week, we made our first visit this year to Merrose Farm, one of or most favourite sites. Thanks to the Club and all of its hard working team in getting the sites open for business, it is much appreciated. So we arrived at the site on Wednesday 30th October, and as usual we were greeted by the very helpful and friendly warden Mackie. She provided the details of how things were working under the new regulations, which she backed up with some documents. It all seemed very straight forward, and helped to make one feel safe staying here. I have been coming to this site for a number of years, and the site presentation and standards have just become better and better. Despite this being near the end of the current season, the site looks as good as ever, thanks very much to Mackie, Jayne and the wardening team. Working in the hospitality business myself, I know what a difficult year it has been. So a big thank you to the team for taking on the extra tasks and still delivering an excellent site The required Covid regulations were in place, the cleaning standards were excellent as ever, making the visit feel very safe and comfortable. I guess the team will be very grateful when this season comes to an end. we would like to say an extremely big thank you to you all for all the hard work that you have put in.
