“A peaceful retreat”
Reviewed May 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

There is everything you need at the apartment for a quiet relaxing stay. Beautiful views and lots of wildlife in the garden. Nice walks nearby to the river and not far to the coast. I would recommend Merok Lodge as a place to chill out. Also we would like to thank Joan and Terry for being the perfect hosts.

“Pristine and peaceful!”
Reviewed March 25, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Perfect retreat for R&R if you need to completely switch off and recharge your batteries but great base from which to explore the beautiful countryside. Every mod-con you could wish for and a beautifully clean and tasteful apartment. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation and appreciated hugely the warm welcome and consideration of Joan and Terry.

Many thanks!

“Very comfortable and spacious apartment in scenic location”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We very much enjoyed our three day stay here at this wonderful apartment. We were made very welcome by Joan who told us everything we needed to know. Welcome Pack very useful for those who arrive late and don't have chance to do any shopping, The flat was very comfortable, clean, warm, spacious and had all the facilities we needed. We particularly loved the view of the garden and surrounding countryside and were very excited when a flock of pink-footed geese flew overhead. At the bottom of the lane we had a lovely walk by the river and had a very good Sunday roast at the White Bull in Great Eccleston.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Merok Lodge. The cottage was exactly as described and illustrated. We were very thankful for the welcome package that was left as we arrived in the evening after a full day of travel. Loved the garden and all the wildlife. The 7 ducks were a delight. The location of the property is conveniently located close to Great Eccleston and all the shops and restaurants. We journeyed down to Cartford Inn and had a delightful lunch.
The only thing we would recommend would be to have a landline available. We were 2 women from Canada so did not bring our cell phones due to the roaming charges, and were dependent on Wifi. We had problems with the Wifi for a couple of days and then lost it completely that evening. The owners were away so we walked to the local phone, a short distance from the property, and called Joan. She was very good and resolved the problem quickly. We could have used a phone to call a cab or take out.
All in all this is a fabulous place to stay. I highly recommend it!
