Great welcome and very comfortable stay for 9 of us in 3 separate rooms plus a self contained 'flat'; individually cooked breakfast very sensibly to a prearranged schedule, using excellent local produce (top notch sausages from Peter the butcher). All helped make the family wedding in nearby Swaffham Prior the more enjoyable. Large family size rooms, all with TV made... More

I stayed here one night with my Mum. Never again. We got caught in traffic, so were slightly late. The owner was very unwelcoming. We were supposed to stay two nights, but one night was enough! The shower was dirty. I was told that my trained assistance dog would need to stay in the car when it clearly states on... More

Myself and my partner booked through booking.com and managed to get the last double room at Meadow House which was great as the idea was to be in the area ready for a nearby Christening the next day. When we arrived we were told we didn't let them know we were part of the christening so we were given an... More

When my husband and I arrived for the first of three night stays at this property only to be told by Mrs March that our fully booked pre-paid vouchers were no longer valid as we had paid this money into a Travel Company that suddenly went into receivership, and the established well known company that took over this business was...

Not recommended. The bedroom was over cluttered ,the shower went cold half way through, breakfast table was overcrowded with people, crockery and goods from cash and carry store. . No feeling of welcome. Misleading information on phone regarding bathroom facilities which would have been shared. Only take cash in the 21st. century??? Lucky that there was a cash machine in...

Room's ok, but had to push two singles together, when we were told it was a double bed. Nice and quiet location, plenty of parking. The bin in the bathroom was full of soiled sanitary products,and consequently made the bathroom stink. Very disappointed by the breakfast. A full English does not consist of two bits of bacon, a tomato, a... More

A few days after booking I received a letter from the Meadow House confirming my booking signed by Hilary Marsh. 2 weeks after booking I emailed Mrs Marsh to inform her that I would be arriving between 2-4 pm. I received an email back saying that... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in the coach house, seperate from the main house, an annex building. To which we found perfect. 1 double bed and a single. Good size bathroom with clean towels, shower gel etc. We also had a kitchen area with plenty of crockery, utensils and a microwave. I'd booked quite a few months in advance... More

As the main building was full, stayed in a flat run by Meadow House, further into the village. Short walk to local Coop, pub, and fantastic Indian. See separate review. The flat was a high standard in a nice quiet location. Returned to the main house for an excellent cooked breakfast.
