St. Mellion is a golf resort destination of choice for many a golfer. The Cornish resort, home to the renowned Nicklaus Signature Course, regularly features in ‘must play’ articles by leading industry publications, most recently recognised in the Today’s Golfer Top 100 and in ‘The Best Golf Courses to Play in 2022’ article. Pro Tour golf is also set to return to the resort this year as the Nicklaus Course plays host the Clutch Pro Tour.

Formerly known as St. Mellion International Resort, the golf resort underwent a strategic rebrand in 2020, with a focus on broadening its appeal to the developing golf market that emerged as a result of the pandemic. With not only a World Class golf course on offer, but also the highly rated Kernow Course and extensive accommodation and leisure facilities, the name ‘St. Mellion Estate’ materialised.

One of the Estate’s best kept secrets are the 18 holidays cottages which sit nestled between the two golf courses a short drive from the main resort. The demand for ‘staycation’ self-catered holiday accommodation has increased dramatically over the last 18 months, especially in Cornwall, so there has never been a better time to get phase 2 of the rebrand underway, developing the wider Estate.

“Phase 1 of our multi million pound redevelopment plan focused on the main resort with a brand new pro shop, a fleet of 60 GPS buggies, along with upgrades to our poolside facilities including a brand new spa pool and sauna. It’s an exciting time for the Estate as we forge ahead with phase 2 developing the Holiday Cottage Collection,” said Matt Pressman, Resort Director.

The £2 million Holiday Cottage Collection development plan sees the entire collection of properties reconfigured and refurbished, resulting in a high end, diverse offering to satisfy both the golfing and multigenerational holiday market. The uniquely situated self-catered cottages will comprise of 1, 2 & 3 bed options all with private parking and French doors opening out onto private outdoor entertainment areas.

With a variety of property sizes and layout designs, from bungalows to the distinctively designed ‘turret’ cottages, St. Mellion’s new Holiday Cottage Collection will offer a truly unique ‘staycation’ experience in Cornwall.
