Excellent location to visit tourist attractions. The locals were very friendly & good at recommending places to visit.
The traditional Devon Inn is well maintained & the rooms are clean & comfortable. Felt like home from home.
Our dog serjy was made very welcome & had a lovely time making new doggy friends.
Nothing was too much trouble our requests & needs were catered for.
The new owners have settled in well & are doing a great job & being great hosts. We hope to return when they have made the place their own.
Great just to sit in the bar in the evening talking with owners, staff & the locals.
I'd love to come back.

Merton itself, although classified as a village, only has a petrol station with adjoining post office/shop, a church and a pub. Travellers must be prepared to drive further afield for a greater selection of eateries etc. but it is ideal for a quiet bed and breakfast.

Merton itself is little more than a hamlet of a few houses pub, church and school, in the middle of the lovely north Devon countryside.
The pub is a wonderful place to waste an hour or two, good beer, food and hospitality.
An oddity, "Barometer World", the barometer museum, unfortunately it wasn't open during my brief stay, but I'm sure worth spending half an hour or so looking around
Of its type this is a splendid classic example
Merton itself is a very small village but is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Keen walkers will enjoy nearby Dartmoor and Exmoor and keen gardeners will want to visit Rosemoor (the Royal Horticultural Society garden at Great Torrington). The North Devon coast is a short drive away and serious shoppers can always go to Exeter.
