Baby Friendly Cottages

Sustainable and Baby Friendly Holidays at Merlin Farm


Merlin Farm offers Baby Friendly Cottages at Mawgan Porth a short walk from a sandy beach on the North Cornwall Coast. If you are holidaying with your newborn baby or toddler, Self Catering Accommodation offers you the space and freedom to plan your day at your own pace. Because we know how much baby paraphernalia can take up in your car, our cottages provide some of the essentials for little ones, so that you can travel lighter.  Merlin Farm offers a relaxing farm environment, toddlers love petting Holly the horse over the fence and seeing the chickens. To help you decide which Cottage meets the needs of your young family, please find below a list of what baby gear is provided in each cottage. Parents can indulge in Spa Treatments in the comfort of your cottage, or escape to one of two Day Spas in the village. If you don't fancy cooking, there are meal delivery options or you can enjoy food in one of the many restaurants nearby, many within walking distance.

​If you fancy an evening out with the kids we recommend using for reliable, proffessional, checked babysitters.

"Here a family of four can feel safely ensconced in serene countryside"



"If you ever catch yourself wishing that your bub's childhood was just a little more Enid Blyton-esque, whisk your family away here....You'll get to be that unstressed Mum you've always wanted to be"


"Equipped with everything from baby monitors and blackout blinds to steriliser, they are a new parent's dream" (Constantine Cottage)


"Merlin Farms ticks all the new-parent fuss boxes. We didn't get to spend nearly enough time in this little haven, which is probably why I find myself thinking of it, so often"
