Crylla Valley Cottages Is Proud To Be A Part Of Golfing’s Rich Heritage

There are many reasons to go holidaying in Cornwall: the beaches, the surf, the wonderful gardens, the fantastic woodland walks and landscape rambles, the famous pasties and fish and chips.

And then there are the amazing array of Cornish golf courses, with non-other than the Jack Nicklaus inspired course at St. Mellion.

“To this day I don’t think there is another course like it in the UK,” Jack Nicklaus said after it opened.

“And that’s why people are choosing Crylla Cottages for their golfing holidays,” Adrian Saunders explains, “Because it’s just minutes away from the famous Jack Nicklaus course in St. Mellion.”

Set in SE Cornwall, Crylla Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty where holidaymakers can spend their stay playing some of the best local courses around; including the China Fleet championship course which has stunning views over the river Tamar with a challenging and enjoyable par 72, 18-hole course.

Expertly designed by Martin Hawtree the course follows a classic design of ten par fours, four par fives and four par threes. China Fleet also has a modern 28 bay floodlit driving range giving you the opportunity to work on your swing from 7.15am - 8pm Monday – Saturday and 7.15am - 6pm on Sundays.

Not only that, but Crylla Cottages nearby have a partnership with the China Fleet Golf & Country Club, which entitles their guests to discounts off of their 18-hole championship course.

“Whilst staying at Crylla Valley party members will also enjoy full leisure membership at the China Fleet Golf & Country Club.

The China Fleet Golf & Country Club is less than 4 miles from Crylla Valley, just a short drive in the car and very easy to find.

Set in 180 acres of beautiful Cornish Countryside China Fleet is one of the most comprehensive country clubs in the UK. With extensive leisure and sporting facilities, excellent service and glorious views over the River Tamar, China Fleet really is one of the West Country’s best-kept secrets.
