Open plan 'upside down' living with lovely views, only 30 mins to superb beaches
About Simon Parker
Although we love to visit Oakridge as often as we can, unfortunately, due to work & family commitments this does not happen nearly as often as we would like. As the lodge is not a cosy second home benefit for us, we are therefore pleased to offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy everything that the property and location has to offer. Guest reviews and Visitor Book comments consistently indicate that people not only appreciate the accommodation and the superb golf & leisure facilities that St Mellion has to offer, but also consider that 12 Oakridge provides an ideal base from which to explore the numerous and varied local attractions. We do hope that you enjoy your stay. Kind Regards The Parker Family
Simon Parker purchased this House in 2009
Why Simon Parker chose Pillaton
We had been looking for a holiday property in Devon or Cornwall as a family getaway and long-term investment and stumbled across the Oakridge estate almost by mistake. We immediately fell in love with the lodge, its 'up-side down' living concept and the tranquil location with views out over the golf courses at St Mellion. Our love of Oakridge was helped by the fact that a number of family members are keen golfers and were enticed by the superb golf on offer at St Mellion International Resort. The Jack Nicklaus designed 'Signature' course and the 'Kernow' course provide a varied, challenging and rewarding (at least some of the time!) golf in a superb setting. The 13th hole of the 'Signature' course is just a short walk away across the bridge outside the lodge with the clubhouse and leisure club a short stroll away via the golf course buggy paths.
What makes this House unique
To enable guests to take advantage of the facilities we provide two golf and two leisure passes to St Mellion which permit two people to play free golf on either the 'Signature' course or the 'Kernow' course whilst two people enjoy the leisure facilities which include a 25m pool, leisure pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, CV gym, tennis courts, etc. These passes are complimentary for our guests and are included in the rental price and we hope that people appreciate and make good use of them during their stay. In addition to the golf and leisure facilities, 12 Oakridge provides a superb base from which to explore the beautiful countryside with so much to see and do within just a short drive - there is far too much to list but a few family favourites are Whitsand Bay, Mt Edgcumbe Country Park, Cotehele House & Quay and Antony House.

Great house with hard beds
The house and location are great to explore the area. The beds are on the hard side for our family. Golf is on walking distance and pool and tennis on driving distance. DVD collection can have more variety during the winter months as well as an updated game console to entertain the kids to ensure the adults have a great holiday too.
Fantastic place to stay
Perfect family home tucked away in the countryside but easy access to some of Devon and Cornwall's amazing attractions. Fully equipped house with gorgeous views and family friendly open plan living area.
Lovely property and picturesque location
Stayed here with my husband and two children (aged 6 and 9) and my parents for the half term week. Really loved the house and my children really loved the cosy beds. Even I exceeded my fitbit target amount of sleep every night which rarely happens! Really recommend this place and we will definitely be back. The use of the facilities in the nearby St Mellion hotel was brilliant and we all went swimming several times. My husband and dad also enjoyed a round of golf.
Lovely property in superb location
We thougherly enjoyed our family get together in this wonderful home.
We particularly enjoyed the open plan living accomadation on the first floor which was perfect for enjoying quality family time and a cup of tea !
Two small improvements were suggested;
A full length mirror in hallway and a wall clock in the kitchen/ living area ?
Good location for exploring Devon and Cornwall, and nice bonus of two free passes for spa facilities and golf. We will certainly recommend to friends and family.
Brilliant accommodation, peaceful location
This will have been our 3rd visit to No 12. We always live the quietness, no traffic noise just the wild life. The golf passes are the icing on the cake.
Very good break
Great location, great golf and good value with the consessions in with the package a very enjoyable break
