We had been to this lodge 9 years ago and it was better than I remembered. Clean, cosy, welcoming, spacious with comfortable beds and lovely views. Our hosts, Matt & Briony were the icing on the cake: Stunning food enjoyed by adults and kids alike, Welcoming every morning and evening, they were offering helpful suggestions before we needed to ask for a thing. They were fantastic with the kids – clearly experienced with how to talk to kids and make parents feel relaxed! We could not have asked for more. We would dearly love to come back next year but we will be sad if they aren’t here!! I feel they worked very well as a team with their own roles to make us feel relaxed. My only constructive feedback of the holiday is that the hairdryer are so ineffectual. I think it would be better to advertise without hair dryers (I would have bought my own) or upgrade them. All in all 5 star.

Amazing stay at Merlot. Matt and Bryony were incredible hosts, nothing was too much trouble. They made the stay very enjoyable! The chalet was amazing, we loved the hot tub and the bedrooms were ideal. Matt and Bryony’s cooking was exceptional – Amazing cakes and three course dinners. Made a very special trip!!

We had a great week. The chalet has great contemporary decor and was very comfortable and our hosts dealt with all our miscellaneous requests very smoothly. The only downside on location is some late night noise from the hotel over the road.
