Why stay here ...

Merrose Farm Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 Site

Merrose Farm Club Campsite
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Merrose Farm. Lovely clean, spacious and level hard standing pitch. Wardens were very welcoming and friendly. Booking in was easy and moving around the site was easy. The traffic light system down the narrow approach lane took the worry out of meeting any oncoming traffic. The site is very well maintained with all facilities being spotless, with hand sanitisers at strategic locations. The site is well placed for local attractions and access to coastal path which is about 15 minutes walk from site. We particularly liked the afternoon cleaning of the shower block which meant no rushing in the mornings. We definitely recommend staying here and will return in the future.

If it’s possible even better

Merrose Farm Club Campsite
We have visited this site many times and if it’s possible it is even better this year. The wardens are exceptional - charming and efficient. The new loo block cleaning times - moved to the afternoons - seems to work well. The site was quiet as we missed the busy Easter period so the wardens were busy making even more improvements. Back again in May we hope and booked for busy July. Brilliant.

Fabulous area to visit

Merrose Farm Club Campsite
Merrose farm site is in the beautiful Roseland peninsula. There are lots of lovely coastal villages to visit and many beaches. Parking can be limited so best to plan ahead. At Mawes is within easy distant where you can get the regular ferry to Falmouth. There are several National Trust gardens not too far away. The seal sanctuary is also worth a visit. The site is well placed for walks along the coastal path. Staff at the site are very friendly and helpful. All facilities are well maintained. The children play are is one of the best we have seen on a club site. We have had a truly wonderful holiday here.

Return visit - fantastic site

Merrose Farm Club Campsite
We returned to Merrose farm after being so impressed during our first visit last year. The site is in a stunning location and is immaculately kept with spotless facilities. Very welcoming and friendly, helpful wardens. The shop is very well stocked with essentials and lots of delicious local goodies. Also fantastic wood fired pizza or fish and chips van visit on various days. Large, secure dog field as well as a kids play area and football field. Booked a return visit for later in the year, highly recommend.

Wonderful site

Merrose Farm Club Campsite
The site was perfect for our family holiday. It is close to some gorgeous beaches and there is so much to do. The site is very well kept, wardens are very friendly and willing to help in anyway they can. The children’s play area is one of the best I have seen on a site with a beautiful view over the hills. I would highly recommend this site. It was just lovely.
