10 work colleagues descended on Merryfield manor and Simon our host. Nothing was too much bother., Simon allowed us to use all the facilities in both properties , two pools, games room and endless supplies of coal and wood for the fire and aga. It was a wonderful space and we had a lot of fun.
My husband, 3 children (aged 8, 7 and 4) and I stayed here during half term in October. The house is huge with a grand fireplace which we used constantly. The kitchen is very well equipped and we ate most meals at home. The children loved the indoor pool and sauna and we used this twice a day. The manor house is well situated for exploring Cornwall and we did day trips to both the north and south coasts during our stay. The owner, CD, was very helpful and had many local tips for us during our stay. I would highly recommend this rental for large groups, couples, friends, or 1-2 families with children. We were only 5 people but that was fine as well, although our daughter struggled to choose which bedroom she preferred to stay in as they were all so nice. We will definitely return and would also consider booking Merryfield Farm as an alternative as that property, separate but next door to Merryfield Manor, also looked ideal for a holiday rental.
