We aim to make your time at Merlewood Country Park as comfortable as possible so that you can get the most out of your holiday. In addition to the amenities listed below, you may find it useful to read about the Free Wifi that we provide, our social calendar of events here on the Park and our recommendations of the best places to eat and drink and the most popular attractions to visit. Don’t forget to visit our online shop too!
CHILDREN’S PLAY AREA
This is a safe enclosed area in which children can play. It includes an activity centre and space for other ball games on the lawned area. The floor of the activity centre is made from ‘Enviromulch’ which is manufactured from recycled pallets and is able to cushion any falls. Children using this area should be supervised by an adult at all times.
There’s a small library within the Park Office that contains a selection of both adult and children’s books, videos and DVDs. Please feel free to borrow any of these but do not forget to return them.
Our laundry is open throughout the season. We have three washers and three dryers available. Tokens can be purchased from the Park Office.
At Merlewood we have specially created a Dog Walk for you to use. More details are given in our blog.
There are also numerous excellent walks particularly along the riverside. Many of our owners enjoy a drink at one of the local pubs like the White Bull which welcomes dogs.
If you have been out for a walk with your dog along the river, the last thing that you want is dirty paws being walked into your home. The new Dog Shower has a controlled temperature to give your pet a comfortable wash and is located next to the Park Office and open for use at all times.
