My friend and I arrived and were met by Donna and Marcus, such a lovely welcome, then Donna did a complete review of what was happening on our three night [Yoga Retreat] stay. All the details that I had asked for had been recorded and actioned, including dietary and
movement issues, this was all so much appreciated. I really relaxed and enjoyed every minute and we will be back again. Thank you both for your hospitality.


A fantastic, friendly and homely accommodation with wonderful views. Lovely location, not far out of Kingsbridge or Salcombe. Clean, comfortable accommodation with extra “snug” facilities outside the house. Very friendly and helpful owners; made to feel very welcome. An excellent base for a relaxing break.

Lovely tranquil place to stay, lovely location, spotlessly clean, great hosts, highly recommended!!


The hosts Donna and Marcus were so friendly (so was Deezil their friendly lab!) and nothing was too much trouble for them, the location is so peaceful and tranquil, and they allow dogs so the grounds and adjoining fields are great for walking them. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and they have a great outside "snug" with an enormous selection of very good quality teas and coffees. Highly recommended!!


Sad it was so short and for work - would love to return for a more relaxed stay in the future.

Great location, lovely, caring owners. Wonderful spaces for guests to relax in.


A lovely, relaxing stay, close to Salcombe, but set in perfect tranquillity.

All of the extras were lovely. The tray in the room and bathroom. The outside 'snug' was excellent and very well kitted out with everything you could need.


The welcome pack for the dog. The location was beautiful, and very peaceful. The hosts, Donna and Marcus, were fantastic, very welcoming, informative, and helpful.

The whole [Bespoke Yoga Retreat] experience from the calm and tranquil setting to the wonderful yoga sessions was hugely beneficial in focusing some much-needed time on myself! Donna and Marcus were warm and hospitable, and the food was delicious. Donna is nurturing and supportive and extremely knowledgeable and I had the most amazing time and have come away with practical tools to be able to support me in my day-to-day life!


Really enjoyed our stay! Thank you. The property is in a really good location, 10 minutes to Kingsbridge, also not far from beautiful Bantham beach and Hope Cove. Car parking was always available at the back of the house. The room and en-suite were beautiful, clean, and cosy. The bed was so comfortable which is important to us after a day of walking! Donna and Marcus were brilliant hosts, communication was great, they were always available if you need anything and just very friendly welcoming people. We would definitely visit here again!


What an amazing [Bespoke Yoga Retreat} experience! Five days away from the chaos focusing on the body, mind and soul. I came away feeling totally refreshed after we bathed in the forest and grounded ourselves with mother nature and laughed until our bellies hurt with laughter yoga. The variety of yoga was beautiful especially as it was accompanied with poetic words which connected with our hearts. Thank you Donna, for creating a wonderful experience and memory that will stay with me for life!

I had the most relaxed [yoga retreat] weekend with Donna at a friend's birthday. Totally wasn't expecting it to be quite so fantastic! Perfect mix of yoga, SUP, food, chat, relaxation. Accommodation was spotless and welcoming, and the location is stunning. Can't wait to go back!


I cannot recommend [Simply Soulful Yoga retreats], highly enough. Donna and Marcus are incredibly hospitable hosts, and nothing was too much trouble and Donna is an amazing and inspiring Yoga teacher.  Wonderful accommodation in their gorgeous corner of Devon. Highly recommend!


Wow, what an amazing [retreat] weekend at Merrifield House. Donna and Marcus could not have done more to create a very special experience. Accommodation is just lovely and fantastic location too. Highly recommend!!

We had such a wonderful stay at Merrifield House set in a relaxing & peaceful location. Donna, Marcus & their friendly lab Deezil made us feel very welcome.


Our dog (Draco) just had the best time with the freedom to explore the grounds & playing with Deezil such a lovely, gentle natured boy. Thank you, look forward to seeing you again.


Run by a charming,friendly couple.

Rooms are clean,tidy,practical and the little left gifts added to the welcoming vibe.

The outdoor hut was an ideal space to relax either in the morning with a cuppa or chill in the evening with a glass of your favourite beverage. Jay Jay (my dog) had freedom to roam around outside and would like to thank Donna and Marcus for letting him live his best life!!


Our room was bright with a beautiful view over the fields, comfortable & clean. Enjoyed the treats left for both us and our dog. The fields had well thought out seating areas to watch the sunrise & sunset. The outdoor hut is a perfect relaxation space both in the morning and evening with the wood burner lite. Lovely to have a variety of tea, coffee & hot chocolate to choose from and there is a fridge to store your own supplies. Thank you.

From the moment I arrived Donna was the perfect host. The room has everything you need. The bed was unbelievably comfortable with lovely crisp white linen. Yoga and meditation was an amazing and unforgettable experience. Merrifield House exceeded my expectations. Thank you Donna, Marcus and Deeezil (The friendly Labrador) for making my stay so perfect.


Beautiful location and very warm and welcoming hosts. We both had a massage by Donna which was very relaxing . I joined a yoga class in the yoga studio and attended a yin class. It was great to have the snug area to have breakfast and plenty of tea and coffee. Thank you for also welcoming Sox our little Sprocker.


Excellent accommodation with fantastic hosts! Lovely hosts who gave us a warm welcome and great stay. Very comfortable room, exceptionally clean and tidy. Quirky outdoor space and plenty of teas to choose from! The location was perfect for us, great view, secluded with easy access to the places we wanted to visit.

Restful, calm and relaxing. Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful and quiet, comfortable and clean room. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.


A hidden gem - Great service, clean rooms with tea and coffee making facilities. Loved the added touches in the room. Donna and Marcus were really welcoming. Lovely view from the house and enjoyed chilling out in the outside space. Definitely recommend staying at this accommodation.


Clean, comfortable beds and Donna & Marcus are really friendly. Deezil the dog also made us welcome. Great location to explore this lovely part of Devon. Everything we needed and hope to return again.

Beautiful break in the Devon countryside. The location was idyllic! We were able to travel to Hope Cove, Thurlestone and Salcombe all within 10-15 minutes. The room was lovely and absolutely spotless. The bed was incredibly comfortable, so we slept very well. Donna and Marcus are such a lovely couple, and really take their time to ensure you are enjoying your stay. They were perfect hosts. Cannot recommend enough! We had the perfect stay!


Perfect base for exploring the area! Merrifield House is located in a lovely setting not far from Kingsbridge. Donna and Marcus were really friendly and helpful hosts on arrival and throughout our stay keeping us well informed! The room was clean and neat and the shower in the en-suite was good too! Having tea and coffee in the room was a bonus with access to fresh milk as well. Thank you for making us feel welcome!



I recently spent a wonderful weekend at Merrifield House to celebrate a friends birthday. The welcome from Donna and Marcus was warm and heartfelt and the accommodation was calming and beautifully clean. I would recommend Simply Soulful Yoga and Merrifield House to all, Donna and Marcus made our weekend - they are an amazing team!

Thank you to you both.

Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable. Surroundings lovely and peaceful. Will be coming back and would highly recommend. The outside area is a nice touch with useful items, drinks and fridge. Thank you.


Peaceful countryside. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The snug was excellent for us as a group of 4, we could put food in the large fridge and enjoy meals around the table or relax on the comfortable settee. Enjoyed our own breakfasts in here too. Our dog loved the green space to run around in.


Lovely stay in an idyllic place. Thank you for your warm hospitality :) A clean and simple room in a beautiful location. Perfect for exploring south Devon. Tea and coffee were not available in the room but were in the snug outside. This is fine but we didn’t know until we’d got there.

A relaxing mini break. We feel so lucky to have found Merrifield House, a hidden gem in a such a great location and an excellent base for all the places we wanted to visit around South Devon. The room was extremely clean with a comfortable bed. Donna, Marcus and Deezil their dog were excellent hosts so we will definitely be making a return visit at some point.


The whole experience exceeded our expectations, the room was beautifully decorated, the bed configuration was perfect for three friends sharing. The shared space available to relax in was wonderful, a full fridge was handy and the teas and coffee on offer were endless. Donna and Marcus were brilliant hosts, super friendly and nothing at all was too much trouble. We will be back!


A very nice furnished and presented room with en-suite. Very clean with good quality bedding and bathroom towels. Good quiet location just off the A379, with wonderful views.  Perfect for relaxation away from the daily hustle & bustle. We only had two nights but would thoroughly recommend. Donna & Marcus are perfect hosts giving a warm and friendly welcome.

We really enjoyed our stay at Merrifield House. It is really beautiful, super clean and very comfortable. We had a very good night sleep as it is very quiet around and woke up to go for walks in the fields around which was lovely. One more thing to mention is the positive energy around the place! The hosts are great and very hospitable. I definitely recommend this place!


The location is great and the hosts could not have been more welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable and there is a lovely snug in the garden where you can relax and eat a takeaway or enjoy a glass of wine. The on site yoga studio run by Donna was an added bonus!


The small details in the room were a great surprise, the hosts were extremely friendly. Overall our stay here was extremely comfortable with all our needs met, the area is great and the beaches are very close, we had a great time here and our dog was very happy throughout the stay too!
