We stayed at The Meadows after reading the reviews and were certainly not disappointed. A warm welcome awaited from Bill and Shelly, a lovely friendly couple who know the area well and offer helpful advice when required. They are experienced hosts and it definitely shows.
As the B & B is in the end of a cul de sac there is no traffic noise. Our room was warm, clean and comfortable with good quality furniture and furnishings. The bathroom was large and walk-in shower excellent. As said in other reports the room is well stocked with jars of tea, coffee and biscuits ( fresh milk also provided ) all replenished daily. Many other thoughtful little extras were provided like a plug in night light for those 'visits' in the wee hours !
A folder gave plenty ideas and comments for eating out, map to the town etc. Walking to the town was 5 minutes and we tried 3 different eateries - all good ( separate reports ).
Breakfast was pre ordered but cooked fresh when we arrived downstairs. A platter of fresh fruit was gorgeous, cereals if required, then came 'the cooked breakfast' ! The full english ( made up from your own choice ) was indeed 'full' and very well cooked. If like me you enjoy smoked salmon you must try Bill's offering - I had a plate of beautiful salmon ( 100grams I was told ) plus scrambled eggs on muffins - heaven ! All this was finished off with toast and a choice of 4 spreads, tea or coffee. Indeed they must be the best B & B breakfasts we have had.
We would like to have stayed another night but it was all fully booked and I can see why.
Thank you Bill and Shelly for an enjoyable stay and for Derek's birthday card ! x
