We recently enjoyed a short break at Middle Merrose and were thoroughly impressed. The cottage is spacious and comfortable, great for dogs (lovely garden and fields close by for walks) and very peaceful with really comfy beds! Easy to get to and in a good location for touring Cornwall. Farmer Dave greeted us on arrival and made us feel very welcomeRead more. Nice to arrive to flowers, tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh eggs. Would definitely like to return again. Hide

2nd time we have stayed at this cottage, this time we were with our daughter and son in law and their 12 week old daughter we also had 2 dogs with us. There was plenty of room for us all and a large garden for the dogs. There was a lovely welcome pack and flowers as well. We all had a lovely holiday and would happily stay here again

Middle Merrose cottage was very homely & we had all the home comforts we needed, along with a big garden for my 3 dogs to roam around. It was nice to have flowers, tea, coffee etc and freshly laid eggs on arriving at the cottage after a long journey down from Bristol. We are returning to the cottage in September 2019 & looking to book for next JuneRead more too. Hide

This cottage felt like home, the garden was actually totally enclosed for our dog, unlike some we've stayed in. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent cottage once again, we love this place and enjoyed it at a different time of year than normal, somewhere to relax whether its inside cottage or in the large garden which our dogs loved running around in. Owner greeted us on arrival as normal, never intrusive. We will be back again.

The welcome was very friendly and it was so nice to arrive to flowers and milk, eggs etc all you need for your arrival. The cottage was lovely and spacious the garden for the dogs was great too enclosed and plenty of room for them to run around. Lovely footpath from farm to beautiful woods and more.
