“Perfect location and accommodation to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday.”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Just returned from a fantastic weekend stay at The Mermaid Inn. Everything we could have asked for. From the well stocked kitchen to the extremely comfortable beds. We didn't want to leave. Thank you to Pete and team for making our celebrations so memorable!

“Simply EXCELLENT! Could not fault!”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed here last weekend, and it was amazing. I can not say enough positive things about this location. Spectacular views, amazing bar area (which can be stocked yourself), great dining room, all ensuite bedrooms for the 26 of us, enough room to not be on each others feet, but that cosy feeling also. We organised for a dinner part company to come in on the Saturday night, and all sat round the 34 seat table, with great views. The Sunday we organised a BBQ, Mariachi Band, and a Cocktail night - we were lucky with the weather!

The only downside is that you are having so much fun, the 10am check out is a shock for the system! Cleaners were there dead on 10am, but didn't rush us too much and just cleaned around us...

“Your own pub in a spectacular house set in stunning scenery”
Reviewed 21 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I can't say enough positive things about the Mermaid Inn. It's a spectacular setting, beautiful property and has excellent facilities. I short-listed about 10 venues for our large 27 person celebration and was so impressed with the Mermaid that I insisted changing the date so we could get in. Didn't regret that at all.

The outside area is great, loads of parking, great BBQ area, great lawn for a bit of casual sport, picnic benches and multiple doors through to the property.

The bar area was the highlight for me. If you want to make the most of this I'd advise going to a brewery and picking up proper casks of beer, beer towels, mats, drip trays etc. so you can create a real pub feel. It made a big difference to our trip.

Bedrooms are nicely spread so those that want more privacy can place themselves upstairs away from the living areas. Bathrooms, bedding and kitchen were all excellent.

The WiFi is perfectly good for checking emails and staying connected. The heating is excellent (not that we needed it) and despite its size the place feels cosy.

Mark the caretaker met us as soon as we were ready and was helpful and friendly.

We brought in a local dinner party company for a celebration meal and I really recommend this. You must make the most of the banquet table with the huge windows.

I miss it and hope to return!

“No complaint - perfect!”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We took a group of 29 young people from our youth group here for a Monday-Friday residential and I honestly couldn't fault it. The location is beautiful, staff were welcoming and accommodating even when we kept coming back with additional questions. The facilities were top notch.

“Fantastic large group venue!”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

Excellent venue for a large group (c20 adults and 9 young children) with lots of space so we never felt in each others way. The fact that each bedroom had an en-suite puts this ahead of most similar places as well as the fact that there are so many bedrooms under 1 roof which is important with young children. Also easily dines a large group with a huge dining table with fantastic views. The bar area was a big hit. Wifi doesn't work throughout the house (it is a big house!) but worked well within the main living areas for basic internet use. Overall a really high quality and enjoyable venue for a large group and we would definitely return. More recycling facilities would be good as we had to put most bottles in the big landfill bins.
