“A perfect weekend retreat for a birthday celebration”
Reviewed 2 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

A wonderful house, full of character and charm, beautifully equipped in a peaceful setting, Three generations together for a family birthday all had a wonderful time and certainly want to go again. The secret staircase and countless games proved a huge hit as did the real fire

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Wow! What a stunning house. We stayed here for a new years eve break with 6 adults, 4 children and a baby (and a dog!). The house is huge, spacious, warm and cosy. The children loved the dressing up box and the toys (and the secret set of stairs!). The house was perfect for our break and we didn't want to leave. We'd love to visit again! Ps thank you so much for returning the fleece my son left behind - much appreciated!

“Gorgeous and generous”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely time at Merrifield House. it is spacious and the provision is excellent - not many rental properties include Sky Sports! The decor is lovely to compliment the excellent facilities and David and Nicky, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. It was a home from home and made for an excellent holiday with our big family.

Merrifield House is absolutely gorgeous and definitely has the 'wow' factor. It has everything you could possibly want and more - the surroundings are idyllic and it is the perfect place for children of all ages - you will not want to leave!
I would highly recommend Merrifield House, it was the perfect venue for our family gathering of 12 (5 children) and 2 dogs.
