A self-catering Cornish villa for up to six guests near the foodie mecca of Padstow, including a £50 Rick Stein dining card and dog-friendly options

This chic retreat is perfect for those looking for a Cornish getaway. Bay Retreat Villas comprises 28 stylish and contemporary holiday villas on the outskirts of St Merryn, three miles from Padstow. If you like setting your own holiday pace, then this is ideal, as the villas are all self-catering but not too far from town if you fancy eating out.

Close to the stunning coastline, which consists of deep, sweeping bays and jagged cliff and rock, Bay Retreat Villas offers that sprinkle of luxury that makes your stay extra special. The self-catering villas include a private Juliette balcony off the main bedroom, a kitchen and lounge/diner, plus a small private garden with furniture, including a timber-decked terrace and lawn, or a gravel area. You'll get a reserved private parking space outside the villa and you can also bring your dog along depending on which option you choose.

There are seven magnificent bays all within easy reach from here, with the nearest, Constantine Bay, just three miles away. Just a short drive south along the coast are Watergate Bay and Newquay, Cornwall's liveliest resort. You're also not far from the amazing Eden Project. With all this, it's no surprise Bay Retreat Villas has earned itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
