    Thought the equipment was very up to date and good, the downstairs had a lot of marks and lots of cobwebs around. Also couldn’t use the downstairs outside area as there was some kind of animal waste.

    A lovely cottage, central to where we wanted to be. It was very hot and had to keep doors shut as we were plagued by wasps. There was a welcome pack a nice bottle of red, thank you. The stars were amazing at night,could see the Milky Way and the next universe. Would appreciate a couple of coat hooks as you come in, but a minor... We would stay again, comfy, clean,well equipped, fun little place. Those stars really were amazing,loved nearby beaches too.

    This was our third visit to the area and our first to Merlin. It is a really nice place to stay; comfortable, clean, quiet. We liked it being an upside-down set-up because it was cooler sleeping downstairs and convenient for letting the dog out in the middle of the night. Also, we kept the doors open upstairs and it still felt private. The hotel/pub very close by was fantastic too with excellent customer service and delicious food. We aim to visit again, availability permitting.
