Holiday Rental House
An idyllic, quiet haven, Merrifield House is a listed Georgian former Rectory offering visitors the rare opportunity to get away from it all, whilst affording easy access to Dartmoor National Park and the beautiful sandy beaches of the South Hams. Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday or an ‘action packed’ cycling or pet friendly walking holiday, we have everything on our doorstep for both young and old to enjoy. The house has been renovated to an exceptional standard with all original features retained. Fine rural views are afforded out over a large pond and there is a patio area with gas barbecue catching the evening sun. Beyond, are 20 acres of woods and fields for youngsters to burn off energy.

Downstairs there are original flagstone and oak floors with open fireplaces and underfloor heating. Rooms are furnished with high quality period furniture including a stunning old dining table. There are both indoor and outdoor games rooms including table tennis and table football. We moved to Devon with our 3 children approximately 7 years ago and have spent much of that time renovating Merrifield. Merrifield has become my passion and I am constantly updating and upgrading the house and gardens. It gives me great pleasure to share this wonderful place with my guestsMore
