Family holiday to bay retreat villas
Good accommodation with good outside parking. Lovely rooms and kitchen/diner, accommodation clean and beds made which was nice. Could sleep six really so good value for money if you can get it at a lower rate. All round nice place, some good bar and food facilities and a shop but not a lot on site.

Lovely Modern Villa
We had a great stay at the Bay Retreat Villa's. Accommodation was modern and spacious. It was easy to find and a good location for exploring Cornwall, although a car is essential. A few areas are starting to look a bit shabby i.e. the outside of the property and balcony and also the kitchen worktops but everything else was in good order. There is a local shop, restaurant & bar on site and also tennis courts. We ate at the restaurant once, the food was nice home cooked type meals, because of this they were a little slow coming out. Decor in the restaurant could do with some updating and we did feel a bit rushed as they wanted to close for the football.

Excellent accommodation, spacious and well equiped. The site offered a shop, restaurant and dog exercising area and was well kept. Short breaks available. Good location.
Only one minor critisism I have is that the outside of the property wasnt as well kept as the inside. The grass in the garden was overgrown on arrival (although it was cut while we were there), and the balcony and garden furniture looked a bit dingy.

Our Stay at Bay Retreat Villas - St Merryn May 2014
The pictures online must have been taken when the complex was new, they are beginning to look tired and in need of refresh inside and out. Internally there is a lot of space, nice kitchen and bath , well furnished but not as clean as I would have liked. the location is only a couple of miles way from Padstow as well as the lovely sandy bays and coastal walks but you need to drive to get to these places from the villas. We had thought we'd walk but as the country lanes have no footpaths, that plan failed. We felt a bit deserted and had to get into the car to get everywhere.
Luckily we had taken our own pillows! The ones provided weren't comfortable. for the price we paid I expected more.

Shame about Safety!
High Chair but no stair gates provided even after my son fell down stairs trying to prevent his 2 year old falling downstairs, broke his ankle in 3 places, required 7 pins & plate.
No handrail on stairs & very narrow as twist.
Garden decking also has step not clearly defined.
Would not use again which is shame as otherwise comfortable, well equipped apartment.

New year at St Merryn
Excellent accomodation well positioned to explore the whole of cornwall, very close to wonderful walks, both clifftop and beaches within a few minutes by car - perfect for clearing head after New Year and Xmas excess.
On site shop was useful but Padstow very close by for all you may need for self catering or eating out. Apartments were fitted out and maintained to a superb standard throughout, would not hesitate to recommend staying here
