I thought my sat nav was playing tricks when it guided me up the long gravel drive to an imposing and unusual house surrounded by impressive lawn and gardens. I had a small single room in the cottage - perfect for one and full access to all the facilities in the cottage (supper in the fridge, hot drinks)
Breakfast was excellent and you watch it being cooked - to perfection I might add. But what makes Mere Brook so very special is the people who work there. The genuine warmth and enthusiasm for providing truly excellent service was apparent in everyone I met.
I was also welcomed back later in the day (when I returned the room key I had inadvertently walked off with) and given a cup of tea and home made biscuits whilst waiting for traffic to calm down before my long drive home.
I cannot praise Mere Brook highly enough and hope to return in the near future.
