We absolutely loved Merkin's Farm Cottages. We rented the 3-room cottage and it was perfect - my wife and I, our two kids, and two grandparents. The cottages have recently been re-done so everything is clean and neat. The setting is fantastic with lovely views. Also, in six trips to the UK, this was the BEST bed my wife and... More

We stayed here for four nights with the caravan. It's a lovely friendly location with great views over the fields and hills. The cafe is a little gem with a lovely atmosphere, the staff were exceptional and made our visit even more enjoyable. Try the breakfast , you will not be disappointed. There is a bit of road noise from... More

Stayed here first weekend in April 2014. I was pleasantly surprised that the ground was well drained especially after the amount of rain experienced in the preceeding weeks. Being a hilltp site it can get breezy with nothing to stop the wind across yhe Trowbridge vale. There is only one toilet for each sex and one shower room. The shower... More

Very short review, stopped in there for coffee and cake on a cycle ride twice. The food, coffee and atmosphere can't be faulted, a really nice place to stop. Retro decor with a warm cafe for those cold winter days, or a lovely outdoor area for when our sun shines

Spent three days with our motorhome from New Years day. Camp site was quiet. Just two loos and a shower, but what more do we need? Surprise 'star' was the on site café, serving fresh good food. Our breakfast of scrambled egg and bacon on toast was excellent. Thanks for a great stay.

My husband and I stayed at Puddings Barn last week and had a wondeful, relaxing break. The cottage is cosy, comfortable and well appointed, with great views over the fields. We loved being able to get a delicious cooked breakfast delivered to our door from the farm cafe! We really enjoyed discovering the area and had great days out in... More

We are a local family who use the cafe now and then and grandparents use the campsite when visiting us several times a year. We are big fans of Merkins, John and Hayley do a lovely job of keeping the site looking beautiful and well kept and seem to be constantly making improvements to the site and cafe. Hayley has... More
