I do really recommend it to anyone and surely I would come back if I ever have the opportunity again, thanks for everything." - Efren Rivera, East Sussex.
"Meadow View were indeed exceptional hosts. Their attention to detail, informal style and local knowledge made for a treat of a weekend. We'd love to stay again. Thank you!" - Jenny, Nick and Cal Drew, Birmingham.
"Perfect experience. We were probably some of the tougher guests that Chris will ever have to put up with, three children under five arriving early (allowed us to check in before time) and jet lagged (they woke up early to give us breakfast). We and our children were made to feel so much at home, and treated like honoured guests. Everything was catered for, food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. We actually stayed two days, one week apart, and each was just so special. We have numerous examples of where Chris went beyond the call of duty, such as reading to our five year old for an hour, who enjoyed himself so much on the second stay he brought a new book and sought Chris out to read it to him.
Already considering for next year. Thank you for all you did!" - The Lyon Family, Penang, Malaysia.

Again this was so clean and modern with a wonderful selection of organic creams, lotions and soaps, my partner was in her element!! The breakfast was pretty much all you can eat with amazing local organic produce, all freshly cooked. Even the location was beautiful centrally located between the coast, Bath, Cheddar, and Wells and Glastonbury. Wonderful!" - Paul C Irons, Bishops Stortford.

If we are in the area again, we would definitely return. Thank you." - Mary and Graham Silverton, Horncastle, Lincolnshire.

The breakfast was the absolutely the best we've ever had any any B&B or hotel! Amazing local produce cooked to perfection by Chris who's also trained chef and a fantastic host.

We couldn't have been happier and would definitely stay at Meadow View again." - Ben and Verity, St Albans, Hertfordshire.

The icing on top of an already good cake is the breakfast in this place. I know all the reviews say it but wow!!!!!!!!!!! If you want to ruin every other breakfast you may ever eat then come here!!!! Everything fresh and locally sourced. Home made jams from Chris himself and sausages that make your mouth feel like you are throwing a party. Just great.
We will be returning even if it's just a night away from city life!! It was pleasure staying with you." - Andrew Sayle and Laura, Worthing, West Sussex.
