    “This is more like a boutique hotel ...”
    This is more like a boutique hotel than a cottage. We have very high expectations, and Merryview met and exceeded them in every way. The cottage was exceptionally clean. The furnishings were lovely, and the wood burner made the drawing room (indeed the whole cottage), exceptionally cosy. The views were quite outstanding, and if you are looking for a perfect bolt hole, away from the hustle and bustle of life, you will not be disappointed.

    This is more like a boutique hotel than a cottage. We have very high expectations, and Merryview met and exceeded them in every way. The cottage was exceptionally clean. The furnishings were lovely, and the wood burner made the drawing room (indeed the whole cottage), exceptionally cosy. The views were quite outstanding, and if you are looking for a perfect bolt hole, away from the hustle and bustle of life, you will not be disappointed. Even the toiletries were from Neal's Yard, demonstrating the fine attention to every detail. These, together with wonderful large white fluffy towels, meant we spent almost as much time in the bathrooms as we did elsewhere! This is an outstanding destination, and don't be put off by the owners living near by. They were very friendly & helpful but in no way intrusive. The "welcome basket", was a lovely touch. We would recommend this cottage to anybody wanting a luxurious break in an area of breath taking beauty. Ten out of Ten!
