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.

If planned to stay 3 nights but my room was not ensuite, which surprised me as all the information I'd read said "ensuite rooms". If they're not all ensuite, then your information should say so. The room was beautiful and very clean. I'd arrived later than planned and rang ahead to let them know - no problems there. At breakfast... More
