Hello. Thank you very much for a lovely stay. We hope to come back in the near future.

The Watt Family,

Thank you so much for a lovely stay in a beautiful house! We will definitely have to stay here again in the future. It was perfect for the dogs

The B,

Outstanding light and airy barn conversion set in beautiful countryside. Everything has been carefully planned and executed to the highest standard. You can eat outside and admire the cows in the distance or you could watch the chickens march by. A wonderful experience all round and I will definitely return. Thanks to Carol for making us so welcome.

June Family,

I recently had the good fortune to stay at The Meadows a stunning barn conversion, set in the most beautiful surroundings with views to die for, the barn has everything you could possibly want for a luxury holiday. Kingsbridge is a great location, we loved every minute of our time there and will most definitely be returning next year if not before...

Smith Family,
