Picture 1 of 40. The 'WOW' factor in the large and spacious kitchen/dining-room.
Meadowgate hardly requires an introduction as this beautifully renovated house is Kirstie Allsopp’s ‘Homemade Home’. Found in total seclusion but minutes from Welcombe Mouth, one of the most stunning beaches on the north coast, Meadowgate sits at the base of Welcombe’s deep valley. The social rooms are accessed from the elegant slate and tiled hallway. The comfortable sitting-room boasts an open fire and large sofas encourage you to sit and read that book you have always promised to read. Children will love the second sitting-room which is filled with Kirstie’s inspired home-made crafts. Throughout the house guests will be reminded of all the passion that Kirstie put into restoring and furnishing Meadowgate. The large gold letters spelling out WOW in the kitchen/dining-room say it all as this is the heart of the house, with the warming Aga helping to conjure up mouthwatering feasts and an inviting backdrop to all meals from breakfast to supper. From Vanessa Arbuthnott fabrics, to Kirstie’s own gold and black wallpaper in the downstairs wash-room and the eclectic mix of furniture, Kirstie’s unique style is repeated throughout. Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, a twin room and a really special room for four children as they all bunk up in the twin bunk-room. The Vi-spring beds are furnished with luxurious cotton bedding and the master bedroom has a wonderful roll-top bath where you can indulge in a glorious bath and soak up the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside! The sixth bedroom is separate to the main house and sits above the games-room where children young and old will have great fun playing with the pool table and Subbuteo football table. Outside, basking in sunshine all day, Meadowgate’s landscaped garden will be ideal for barbecues, games and generally relaxing. For those keen to explore, the National Trust protects the valley which offers endless hours of exploration, and just up the road there is a great pub called the Old Smithy Inn. Meadowgate is enchanting and inspired Kirstie to fill it with love, and she feels confident that guests will enjoy this unique and delightful Devonshire bolthole. Please note that the changeover times are 4pm on arrival and 10am on departure.
