Baby & Toddler Friendly Cottages


Merlin Farm offers Baby and Toddler Friendly Cottages a short walk from Mawgan Porth beach on the North Coast of Cornwall. If you are holidaying with your newborn, baby or toddler, our self catering accommodation offers you the space and freedom to plan your day at your own pace. 

At Merlin Farm you will experience a quiet and relaxing environment away from the crowds, the perfect place to retreat back to during the busier months. 


We provide some of the baby essentials so that you can travel lighter, helping to make your holiday to Cornwall a stress free home-from-home experience.

Fireguards are fitted in all our cottages except Trevone which is a single storey property. 

We can provide a highchair, travel cot & fireguard on request, the following is also provided in your cottage; baby bath, potty, changing mat, toddler toilet seat and step up, as well as plastic plates, cups, bowls, cups and cutlery.


Encourage the other half to take your little one(s) out for a little while whilst you indulge in relaxing Spa Treatments in the comfort of your cottage, or book in to one of two Day Spas in the village.

​If you fancy an evening out without the kids we recommend using for reliable, professional, checked babysitters.

Why not bring the Grandparents. Want your little ones to enjoy quality time with their extended family? (& onsite babysitters). Grandparents occupying a neighbouring cottage will receive a 10% low occupancy discount. 

We can recommend baby friendly places to visit such as Macdonalds FarmNewquay ZooSoft play at Newquay Trampoline ParkLappa ValleyBlue Reef Aquarium and Dairyland.

"I had no idea that staying somewhere with children could be so relaxing and easy!"


"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"


"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"
