Special Ranges in the MERL Shop

The MERL shop was redesigned and expanded as part of our redevelopment project. We now stock new ranges and merchandise inspired by our collections.

Choose from a large selection of cards, gifts and products for all ages, whether it’s a little something for the children, or a souvenir to remember your visit by!

New in this month!

Absolute Unit Mint Jelly homemade by The Jam Lady! We already stock a selection of The Jam Lady’s jams and jellies but this new product is exclusive to The MERL shop! Just in time for your Easter roast, Sarah was inspired by our Absolute Unit story on twitter to create a delicious new mint jelly just for us! Find out more on our blog!
