Had a wonderful one night stay in the Gatehouse Cottage. The cottage has been beautifully appointed and is very charming. The spa with candle lights was magical. The cottage was clean and we had a very comfortable stay. Maj was a great in giving us recommendations where to eat etc which was very helpful.

My husband and I had an overnight stay in the Gatehouse Cottage and loved everything about it. The spa room was a lovely touch to a romantic cottage. The breakfast amenities were fabulous and the whole cottage was clean and welcoming. Thanks Maj and Daniel for making us feel so at home.

My boyfriend and I recently had a long weekend stay in the Lyrebird room of the main house. It is situated on 11 acres of forest iys so quiet and even though we were staying in the main house it felt like we had the place to ourselves. I do admire the attention to detail maj and Daniel have put and can I say she makes a fabulous breakfast. The merrow cottages is also walking distance to the pig and whistle (good food, staff and cider) and william ricketts sanctuary.

Our overnight stay in the Forest Edge cottage was a wonderful experience. All the basics such as cleanliness, amenities and breakfast were excellent. The bed is wonderful and the spa and shower were absolutely fantastic. This cottage is very quiet and secluded - perfect for a romantic experience. There are also many charming touches such as candles, port, perfumed soaps and very comfortable bath robes and the view of the forest is simply outstanding.

Daniel and Maj were very friendly hosts who take pride in maintaining the cottages and making guests feel very welcome.

Room Tip: The Forest Edge cottage is definitely the best.

Stayed in The Gatehouse. Maj was very nice. Needs signage to where you need to go a bit confusing. Cottage looked beautiful and was secluded loved the spa, the open fire place, and the look of the King size bed, pity the bed creaked a lot and felt like sleeping on a park bench. The double shower was not good as when you changed the taps on one the other went the opposite (if you turned the hot up on one the other went cold).

On reading the guest book in the room others had made the same comments about the bed since 2011, if these small things were fixed would definitely return.
