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.

Excellent stay

We have stayed at Merrose before and enjoyed our time here. Albeit a lot busier! The park is clean tidy and well maintained . The wardens do a great job . Plenty of Covid precautions in place and most people were abiding by the procedures which was comforting. The site has a mixture of hard standing and a lovely grassy area at the top of the site. There is a lovely farm shop within 10 mins walk stocking fab fresh fish crab etc small amount of frozen meat, deli type produce and a lovely display of fresh fruit and veg . Great walks along the coastal path to Portscatho via the hidden hut . Which got very busy and was a Covid free zone ! Coastal paths were great with stunning views but unfortunately spoilt by inconsiderate dogs owners . A trip to the Roseland Peninsula wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Driftwood Restaurant excellent food service and views! All in all a great site and location . Really enjoyed our stay thank you

Wonderfull the bees knees

This has always been a wonderfully maintained site thanks to the hard work of the wardens especially this year with all the covid restrictions. What a contrast to our stay at Willincott club site .there is always plenty of choice of pitch a little more limited this time but this was only due to covid 19 as the site was far more busy than usual for this time of year. good facilities good sized dog walk. there was fish and chips on site twice a week and stoned fired Pitza once a week both worth a try . For a good sunday lunch try the Roseland inn on the way to the King Harry ferry. Thank you wardens for all your hard work the club should hold onto these wardens.

Keeping connected

we stayed here as part of our current tour. What a brilliant site. We thought our choice of pitch was limited due to the number of guests already on site but we quickly found a perfect pitch with loads of room. The facilities here are superb and spotlessly clean. The staff are all very friendly and efficient. The location is perfect for visits to beaches and towns with the bus stop situated just next to the site. The one thing that always puzzles me is the lack of consistency in site wifi. This site is remote, has trees and buildings, all the things we are told make wifi difficult, the signal here, however is excellent. I know wifi is not one of life's essentials but these days, especially on a long tour, it is important to keep conected without using up all ones data allocation. We would definitely recomend this site.

Wonderful Week on Roseland Peninsula

Having read some reviews about the summer months , prior to booking and staying at Merrose Farm, We were a little apprehensive, but we really wanted to stay in this area and try the campsite. The campsite was always full, but we felt it was well managed and we had no problems with social distancing and never felt overcrowded. Due to the fact that most people used their own facilities, there was hardly ever a queue for the ablution block. We had a fantastic week - the campsite is perfectly situated for walkers and beach goers. We were out every single day without having to travel much distance to explore this wonderful area. We will definately be returning at some point soon

A fabulous location for a staycation!

We went to this site in the middle of August and loved it so much, I shortened the following site so that I could extend our stay - it is a really lovely site in an absolutely fabulous location. We have a motorhome, so walking, cycling and public transport is high on our list. Whilst we didn't cycle whilst here, the Coastal Path is within easy walking distance to reach and easy walking in both directions (we didn't go too far along in either direction, but had a good 40 minutes of walking - as you approach the sea, if you follow the path to the left you can get to a lovely beach with a cafe (go back to the road and follow it down - there is also a little bit of parking available there). We chose to go on to the beach, which is pebbly but beautiful. Social distancing was no problem - there are little coves and a little bit of sand also - swimming and paddling was lovely, as was the weather for sitting and reading for the day (take picnic). Speaking of food, you access the coastal path by crossing the road from the club site and going down through a farm. This Farm has a shop - this was amazing. We had fresh fish each day when we came back from the beach - it sells dressed crab / lobster ready to eat / mackerel / sardines - and the family who own the farm run the shop - just ask for the fish to be filleted and you have fresh fish ready to cook without the mess! Vegetables / honey / jam and marmalade / mayonnaise - even tartare sauce, all freshly grown or made and sold on site in the farm shop. We ate so well it was like restaurant food every night (bring your own capers...). There are bus stops outside the site with one taking you to Truro (we didn't use that route) and St Mawes is the other way - go there! St Mawes is beautiful with shops and restaurants / pubs, but also it has a water bus to Falmouth. This was fantastic! about £5 per person one way, it is a lovely ride across to Falmouth and we loved the shopping there! something for everyone. We bought a cornish pasty and sat looking out to sea - we were lucky to have beautiful weather but I can imaging that Falmouth is atmospheric at any time of year and in any weather. We caught the last ferry back at about 5.15pm and then got the bus in St Mawes back to the site entrance. A beautiful location. We are booked to return... if only for the seafood at the farm shop! And just to add, if you are interested in art then you might be lucky and stay when the farm has an art exhibition on - we loved the beautiful paintings by the artist displaying sea views in bright colours - their son we think... Fabulous.
