We loved this cottage it was a lovely, cosy place with everything we needed. The location was great, close to lots of attractions and lovely villages.
Ms McDonald

The Meal House is a lovely little cottage in a small village. Great location, in terms of getting to the coast, towns and historic sites. The cottage was very relaxing as everything we wanted was provided. Two very good pubs within 5 minutes drive serving good quality and filling food. Having broadband is a significant plus as it made planning days out very easy. Log fire is an attractive feature which added to the cottage being very restful.
Mr Pitigala

The Meal House was a warm and comfortable cottage, in a good area for walking. We were able to take our dog too. There were also pubs for food locally.
