We stayed for six nights in one twin and one double room. Mark and Lesley were so welcoming and friendly. Both rooms were beautifully clean and had everything we could have wanted, including hairdryer, soap, shower caps, a good selection of tea and coffee making facilities, and even a robe if we wished. Room 4 (the twin) especially was lovely... More

Second visit to Meadowlea, this time for pleasure not business. Booked on my last visit as the place was so good. Spotless room with a bright en-suite, excellent breakfast, a huge choice and very pleasant hosts.

Stayed for 4 nights. This small guest house is run by the owners, Mark and Lesley, who are welcoming and helpful. Nice little touches, like fresh milk available at all times, good breakfast menu and bathroom accessories associated with upmarket hotels. Bedroom was small but comfortable, with good furnishings. Pleasant lounge with free Wi-Fi. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Mainly on... More

Found this B&B when looking for a stopover while doing the Devon Coast to Coast bike ride, and this lovely place is ideal. They have bike storage and the couple running it are so nice and helpful. The room was immaculate, very comfortable with nice little touches, for example, you can help yourself to fresh milk for the in-room tea... More

I stayed here on my way walking from Land'sEnd to John O'Groats in April 2015. I couldn't have had more friendly of helpful and accommodating service and a very comfortable room. This despite the owners being in the middle of a family bereavement.

Would highly recommend this B&B for any cyclists planning on doing Coast to Coast. It's roughly half way and has a secure lock up area for bikes. Very friendly and comfortable accommodation and the team helped us organise a local taxi to get us to dinner. If you can book it - I'd recommend it.
