Traditional Cornish Country House



Updated: 25-Jul-2016
House in Trelill, Nr. Wadebridge, Cornwall, England - Peaceful, Rural Location. Close To Port Isaac And The Beaches And Coast Of North Cornwall

Merrymeet House is set in the hamlet of Trelill. It is beautiful stone built Victorian house with plenty of space for up to eight people. It is ideal for a large family, two families or a large group of friends. There are four double bedrooms, one en suite, and a family bathroom. Throughout there are traditional features including slate and wooden floors downstairs, a log burning stove, and a Rayburn. Built in the 1870's, it has been restored to a very high standard. It stands in the centre of a village that is in the heart of the farming community, yet only a short distance from from the fishing villages and surfing beaches this area is famous for. Merrymeet has a very peaceful and tranquil atmosphere, ideal for unwinding and relaxing at ant time of the year. There are three separate sitting areas as well as a dining area and large kitchen.There are rugs on the slate and wooden floors, whilst art work adorns the walls, mostly by local artists. Sit and chat by the log burner if it is chilly or in the lounge for reading, listening to music or playing a board game.There is another lounge that has Sky TV and a DVD player. Outside there are delightful gardens surrounding the property. They offer shady places to sit, patios for morning coffee, afternoon tea or G and T's. There is a large lawn for sunbathing or games and a BBQ area.There are a variety of trees and shrubs that give colour all the year round and attract the birds.In the spring and early summer the wild and cottage garden flowers give a quintessentially Cornish feel. Children will love the play area, with swings, a playhouse and ladders(strict supervision required!) There is a recently landscaped slate and granite patio and garden that is great for alfresco dining. There is off-street parking behind double farm gates to the side of the garden.This is the place to come if you are family, or a group of friends seeking beaches, activities, pubs and restaurants but also a relaxing place to return to.

Great cottage,plenty of room but also cosy especially with the wood burning fire. Everything you need is provided. Obviously a great deal of thought has gone into this cottage.

We thought the cottage was absolutely charming and beautiful.

You have thought of everything in terms of cooking,eating and comfort. We have had a truly lovely time.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

We have had great fun on the local beaches but more than anything we have just enjoyed being in your beautiful home and garden.
