  • "'Just to say how much we enjoyed our relaxing Christmas break at Meadow Lodge with its tranquillity, beautiful views and observable wildlife."

    And vitally just as advertised the accommodation was of an impressively high standard. Mark and Julia were very considerate hosts as they also laid on some extra seasonal touches such as a twinkling Christmas tree and decorative Christmas lights above the porch. We also appreciated the delightful welcome pack of goodies. Despite the less than perfect weather we had plenty of entertainment with loads of interesting books, games and bulging shelves of DVDs to watch on a giant TV. Also there was great internet access and a more than sufficient mobile signal. What's more Meadow Lodge is conveniently situated with the towns of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Totnes and the stunning Devon coast all within easy reach.'

  • "We had a lovely stay at Meadow Lodge over new year."

    Julia and Mark were very attentive hosts, providing us with lots of info on the local area (restaurants, things to do etc), settling us into the property when we arrived late after a very long drive and were always on standby if we had questions. Meadow Lodge is a very comfortable cottage with absolutely everything you need for a wonderful tracking stay. Waking up to the sounds of nature, watching deer roam past the windows as you enjoy your coffee was all magical. Would highly recommend for anyone really looking to escape.

  • "This place is so magical, tranquil and perfectly equipped for a getaway from all the madness in our daily lives."

    The owners are genuinely interested in making sure your stay is as comfortable as they can make it. The surrounding area is so beautiful for romantic walks, also wonderful places to eat and drink, really short drives to towns like Totnes and Dartmouth and is dotted in between picturesque villages. I can’t believe that anyone could or would be disappointed with this delightful gem.

  • "Everything we needed for a relaxing & restful holiday was provided in abundance."

    When we arrived, we were overwhelmed by the tranquility - the owls, the birds, the trees and the abundance of wildlife added to our escape. We had magical sunrises and enjoyed the fresh air and the peaceful garden. This retreat has been so carefully thought through, from the detailed decor to the welcoming food basket. All the recommendations for places to eat and walk and villages to see, all had a wow factor to them. We felt truly welcomed by Mark and Julia and we have no doubt their venture will be a great success!

  • "Meadow Lodge was a fabulous place to stay - so wonderfully peaceful."

    The location was great with so many places to visit within close proximity. A beautiful part of Devon. Mark and Julia are great hosts and made you feel very welcome. They had some great tips for places to visit and restaurants to eat at (The Cott Inn was fabulous). It was also much appreciated that there were essentials like bread, eggs, milk, honey and wine when we arrived! Would highly recommend Meadow Lodge and would definitely return again.

  • "Mark and Julia were great hosts and really wanted us to have a relaxing break."

    Accommodation is super and there a welcome pack of tea ,coffee, milk,honey,jam and much much more. A bottle of champagne was also a lovely surprise. Recommendations for restaurants and visits were spot with the Cott Inn at Dartington a particular favourite. All the main sightseeing spots are only a short drive away so it’s location is ideal but better not to use sat nav to get to them as it takes you down narrow lanes and main road alternatives are available and are much easier. A great find and hope to return.
