“Great Getaway”
Reviewed August 27, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The property has all mod cons is very spacious and comfortable. The views are stunning, words cannot express the fantastic views from the house. The sun shone everyone had a brilliant time we hVe friends and family in the area and when they came to visit us one evening there was space to entertain. I think we will be booking again next year when I rally family for dates. Superb property

“What a wonderful place.”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just came back from a short break for the New Year at Merlin house. What a wonderful place.
The house is excellent. We couldnt fault anything. All the beds were made up for us on arrival and every bedroom had plenty of bath and hand towels. There was also plenty of hand wash and toliet rolls in all the bathrooms. Ther was even a Christmas tree up in the dinning room fire place. Thank you David (the owner) we had a really great time.

“Panoramic views combined with peace and tranquility, perfect”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just spent a perfect weekend in Merlin house for my daughters birthday, there were 8 of us, a mix of couples and single girls, the house easily accommodated us all with room to spare.
The house is furnished to a high standard and is very clean and comfortable with all mod cons.
The views from all around the house are stunning and it is not often you get to stay somewhere where there is no noise or light pollution.
I can't recommend Merlin house highly enough, it is a great place to stay, thanks to David (the owner) for the bowl of fruit, the milk in the fridge and for having the house warmed up prior to arrival.
