Mereside Farm was originally part of the Duke of Westminster’s estate, and whilst the farmhouse dates back to the 1770s, The Hayloft - as its name suggests, originally a hayloft and grain store - was built in 1904, before being lovingly converted into guest accommodation in 2011.

The Hayloft has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and now consists of The Hayloft Apartment for 1 - 3 guests, and, available separately, The Hayloft Studio for 1 - 2 guests. These rooms are all on the first floor (in a separate building to The Shippon) and can also be booked together making a perfect two bedroom apartment.

Both the individually designed apartments have space to unwind (with comfy tub chairs and/or sofas, TV/ DVD, table and chairs), comfortable bedrooms (with quality bedding, sprung mattresses, wardrobe, full length mirror and hairdryer) and en suite bath or shower rooms (with large bath sheets on heated towel rails and complimentary toiletries).

There’s underfloor heating throughout and free wi-fi too. In addition we supply a complimentary selection of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and biscuits and there is fresh milk for you in the fridge as well!
