  • "Lovely clean warm and comfortable house."

    Ideally located for Appledore and its many excellent bars pubs and restaurants. Instow is also a short drive and its lovely beach, ideal for dog walking and two great pub/ restaurants. The house had lovely comfortable beds and very pleasantly furnished throughout. Kitchen very small and not enough cutlery or crockery to enable proper use of the dishwasher so we ended up washing dishes at the sink which is something we haven’t done for years in our own home. A slight problem with the toilets not flushing properly but we managed as we didn’t want to have people in during our stay. We tried to contact the owners as we were leaving but couldn’t get hold of them and an email I sent to Sykes was returned as ‘ not deliverable’ No cleaning products or cloths to keep sink and bathroom cleaned after use. We also couldn’t find any recycling containers, neither food caddy nor paper. These were small niggling issues that didn’t really mar our stay. We would still go back to this property. Oh, one more thing, don’t forget to take bath towels as they’re not provided.( we stay in many many cottages over the years and it’s the first time we’ve had to take our own towels) Otherwise a lovely stay.

  • "Well equipped and spotlessly clean on arrival."

    Although the house was eventually warm and cosy, it would have been helpful to have had some instructions with regard to the heating. A problem arose with the plumbing and was dealt with very quickly. Thank you for the welcome pack that was awaiting us. The gesture was much appreciated as not many owners provide such "goodies" any more. We definitely hope to return in the future..

  • "Lovely house, well appointed and clean."

    Unfortunately, the advert at time of booking did not mention the building work, adjacent to the house, which started at 7.30am and was very loud and incessant through the day - diggers, earth movers, shouting workmen etc. It woke us up early and ruined any opportunities to enjoy the outside area. Customer support was slow to respond and pleas for compensation refused.

  • "The house had everything you could need for a wonderful and comfortable stay."

    It was a great base to visit Appledore (15mins walk) which is very welcoming and has cafes, pubs and restaurants. We also visited Bude, Instow, Bideford, Lynton/Lynmouth and Woolacombe. Many dog friendly walks from the house along the coastal path. There is some noise from the nearby building work, but this didn't detract from the holiday. Don't forget your towels! Thank you for the use of your lovely house.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are happy we made your stay comfortable and you were able to visit many places along the coast. Hope you managed to try the famous fish and chips at Lynmouth. With very best wishes from Meadow Bay. Property Owner

  • "Meadow Bay is a lovely house in a perfect location, only a short 15 min walk to the centre or a 5 min drive."

    The house was immaculate, it had everything we needed for our stay & the beds were extremely comfortable. The only small thing we missed was a microwave in the kitchen would have been useful when dining in although not essential. We appreciated the kind gesture of prosecco, scones, fresh strawberries & cream on our arrival along with treats for our little dog Daisy. The house is very well located for exploring the surrounding area & there are some lovely walks on your doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & we will most definitely be returning.. Thank you very much.

    We thank you very much for your kind review. We have taken your feedback on board and will be supplying a new microwave. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Meadow Bay along with your little dog Daisy Property Owner

About the location


Bideford 4 miles;

Bideford is an historic maritime town on the River Torridge in North Devon. There has been a settlement at Bideford for over a thousand years and it has been an important port throughout its history. Today, Bideford is a thriving town with a fine selection of shops (including individual shops), cafes and restaurants, a park and the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre located on the outskirts of the town. Bideford is in a fantastic location to explore the surrounding area. It is just a few miles from Westward Ho!, which is dominated by two miles of spectacular coastline and proudly retains the prestigious Blue Flag award year upon year. Its sandy beach, backed by a unique pebble ridge, attracts visitors from all over the country and offers fantastic bathing and watersport activities. Just beyond the pebble ridge is Northam Burrows Country Park, which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 253 hectares of grassy coastal plain with salt marsh, sand dunes and grasslands. The country park is also home to England's oldest golf course. The South West Coastal Path and the famous traffic-free Tarka Trail are close by, providing magnificent walking and cycling opportunities. The award-winning Big Sheep all weather family attraction and the Ultimate Adventure Centre are approximately a mile down the road, with the Atlantic Village Outlet Shopping Centre and Supermarket a couple of miles away. The delightful quayside village of Appledore and the pretty beach at Instow are both just over three miles away, whilst the traditional market town of Barnstaple is just ten miles away, and the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, with its quaint cobbled streets, is eleven miles away. The North Devon coast also boasts numerous outstanding beaches, many within easy reach, including those found at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde, Woolacombe and Bude. This is an area of breathtaking beauty, with plenty to see and do for all ages.
