A lovely peaceful little cottage which had everything we needed, and only a 5 min walk by the river to town.

Awesome Little place, we stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage and it was massive.It was very well laid out with a cool fire place with plenty of fire wood available. A 5 min walk to town along the river. The owner was extremely nice and my daughter had an absolute ball playing with the little dog. defiantly be staying here again.

Merrimeet comes highly recommended. It feels and looks very homely, yet clean and efficient. A sense of welcome and generosity from the owners, Kelly and Alistair. The charming property is extensive and has amazing northern European garden surrounds. It offers a sense of privacy and being a way from it all yet is wonderfully located by a lovely stretch of the Ovens river and is an easy walk into town which was not tiresome even in the quite hot weather. The fire was already set for a chilly night and we were itching to use it but it was just too warm. Climate control was otherwise very good. Provisions and equipment were ample for occupancy by a couple. We could easily have stayed a week at Merrimeet in wonderful Bright without exhausting a fraction of the natural, gastronomic and cultural options, and will certainly return quite soon.

The cottage was very clean and well appointed. The owners were excellent. Being walking distance to Bright centre was also a big bonus. Overall it is one of the best places we have stayed in. We had a wonderful time.
