  • “We spent a week at The Meadows 4 adults, 1 wheelchair user and 1 dog.”

    Facilities were excellent, cleanliness excellent. Lovely cottage. Very welcoming. The extra touch of a welcome pack was a lovely surprise. The owner checked in with us a couple of times which was very also welcoming. Would definitely go back.
