It is utterly wonderful. It is spotless. Everything you need is provided. Including a welcome cream tea! The beds are comfortable. It feels like a home not a holiday rental. It feels loved.... Everything about Merrivale speaks of comfort and quality. And the views......... Absolutely stunning!! It literally stopped us in out tracks as we walked in! We could have spent the entire week in the property and not moved beyond the terraces. Leaving each morning was a struggle but there was always the promise of returning each evening. Watching the shipping and the wildlife is addictive and the telescope is a very thoughtful addition. Loved the bird watching book to log all the birds seen. Thank you to Richard and Sarah for sharing this wonderful place. And to Sue for the immaculate presentation when we arrived. This is the only place I have stayed where, by Sunday breakfast, we had all decided that we would be coming back. So next year's trip to Merrivale is already booked, with one small change.... We are booked for a fortnight!

The location was stunning with beautiful unspoilt views across the river/creek. We are kayakers and enjoyed the easy access to the water at low tides from directly outside the accomodation. The village had everything we needed with the lovely River Store and The Ship Inn for drinks and eating out. It was a lovely peaceful place to stay, however, easy to get to other places nearby such as the coast where we enjoyed walks and visiting some of the towns including the delightful Fowey. The accommodation had most things we required and was very tastefully kitted out, the king-size bed being especially comfortable. We were blessed with lovely weather and enjoyed sitting riverside after our day's excursion watching the ducks and swans etc and chatting to the locals walking their dogs etc. All in all, a lovely time was had.
