75th Birthday

We had a superb weekend at Merrieweathers.  It could not have been better to have the Pub as the venue for watching the rugby!  We all enjoyed every minute especially the cosiness of the kitchen sitting around that lovely big table for our meals.
Also we all thought your bedding was lovely, soft pillows and beautiful bedlinen.

Family holiday

I would like to say how much my family enjoyed our stay at Merrieweathers during the last week. It is certainly a wonderful property and the facilities were quite unique in as much as all age groups were able to have a great time.
The house itself, the woods, lakes, pub and not least the swimming pool meant all of us, from myself down to the two year old, were fully occupied all week.
Thanks for everything and we certainly hope to return soon.
– Mr. Mc.Sweeney

Friends weekend

Just home from second stay at this beautiful house. Weekend spent with 16 others – a really chilled, fun weekend. The grounds are stunning and the house is well stocked with entertainment on every scale, it’s own pub, boating lake, pool with pool toys, games indoor and out etc etc etc. Beautiful walks. Love this place and would come back again and again.

50th birthday weekend

Thank you again for providing a wonderful location for us to celebrate Paul’s 50th.  We appreciated all your home has to offer and we were extremely happy to not venture far apart from on foot.  Watching the rugby yesterday was no where near as much fun as in the Cock & Bull last week.  A return trip sometime would be excellent.

Christening and family holiday

I just wanted to write and say thank you very much for letting us stay at Merrieweathers. I am now back in Hong Kong and battling the jetlag but have lots of memories to enjoy from our 10 days in Mayfield.

The christening went really well (despite the rain!) and Sarah and her team really looked after us. Our guests really were wowed by the house.

The whole of our family loved being at the house for such a long time, and the setting was fantastic. The kids loved running around the garden, swimming and playing hide and seek etc. The adults all enjoyed time together and a good few hours in the ‘Cock and Bull’!

Thank you so much for such a magical weekend. Everyone had a wonderful time. I wasn’t sure if the house would be decorated or not so was delighted to see the tree and all the other Christmas touches.
