Villa Merlin, Cornwall
The Camel Estuary on Cornwall's rugged and romantic Atlantic north coast is one of England’s most desirable, yet understated, up-market hideaways - not just for the two princes, prime ministers (all regular visitors) and The Establishment, but for everyone else as well. Whether it is cliff-top hikes, fishing, surfing, sailing, visiting historic houses (Lanhydrock, etc), the Tate Gallery at St Ives, the Eden Project or just savouring the seafood and other tastes of Padstow (regional gourmet capital of the UK, made famous by TV chef Rick Stein) or Nathan Outlaw in Rock, King Arthur’s Castle (Knights of the Round Table legend) and lots more, there’s something here for you too.

Indeed, the Atlantic coast is home to several other renowned links: www.atlantic-links.co.uk tells all...
Villa Merlin sleeps 8-11 in comfort in contemporary interior-designed luxury at Rock, with a beautiful south view over the river Camel to Padstow, open-plan living area, large kitchen-dining room, deck, wi-fi, satellite TV, housekeeping, and everything else you need…

St Petroc, our own property in Cornwall, with outstanding views, is about to be re-developed into a new villa, details of which will be posted as we progress. In the interim, we are inviting clients to stay at Villa Merlin, as an alternative.
St Petroc is reaching the end of its useful life, but is still available for 2015 to returning tenants, or others who are prepared to accept lower standards than at Villa Merlin or our Mediterranean villas. (It's lovely, actually, but not comparable to the others.) If this does not put you off, please contact us about St Petroc, whose panoramic Atlantic view appears on the Home page.
