Our initial impressions on arrival were of a beautiful house in a stunning location. The view to the estuary is wonderful. Inside, the house is spacious and ideal for large groups however we were then faced with numerous cleanliness and maintenance issues which you would not expect from this standard of property and price. The annex is very sweet but the bathroom was dirty and damp with broken bath side panel, mould on the ceiling and mildew grouting. It needs refurbishing. We were most shocked to discover the ceptic tank overflowing so could not use lower section of the garden - keeping a 4 year old away from it. This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location but we were all shocked and disappointed by the issues we encountered with cleanliness and maintenance. I hope the designated property manager checks this property again soon before anyone else is as disappointed us we were.

Thank you so much for your comments. Meadowcliff is indeed a beautiful house and very spacious, so ideally suited to a family break. We were so sorry that you experienced an issue in the garden - the septic tank was emptied just a couple of months ago so isn't full but there does appear to be a problem with a pipe that means one area of the lawn has been affected. An engineer is booked to investigate and resolve the issue in the next couple of weeks, but we very much regret any impact on your stay. Your feedback on the annexe bathroom is also welcomed. The owners have asked us to apologise for any disappointment and have confirmed that they will be assessing the wear and tear here with a view to refreshing the area as soon as possible.

We had a wonderful weeks holiday in this beautiful property which has such wonderful facilities and is in a wonderful location - it could not have been more perfect.

Plenty of space for children to run free. High quality and as advertised. Close to Dartmouth via steam train ride and lovely beaches close by. Feels like it’s in France it’s so beautiful.
Mr Cordell July 2020
Lovely views and riverside location. Dogs need to be on the lead and supervised at all times in the garden though as wild cherries lying on the ground are a risk to their health if crunched and swallowed.
Mrs Egan February 2020
Very comfortable property. Magnificent views. Large house but cosy too
Mr Couch August 2019
A really great place to spend a week with all 4 generations of my family, and Rosie our dog came too! Great walks and lots of places to visit that suited all of us.
Miss Holmes July 2019
I had the most fantastic time at Meadow cliffe. It was to celebrate a special birthday and this did not disappoint! Everything was perfect and the house was a major wow factor for all the guests that stayed. The service was brilliant and the owner was incredibly helpful. Thankyou for making this birthday so special! ?? Abi

A really lovely secluded location, huge house with annex, steeply sloped site - a real winner for families with kids.
Mrs Bartlett June 2019
Really enjoyed our stay in the main house but the annex didn't come up to standard. Hot tub excellent, really nice bbq. Lovely garden and views. Peaceful and quiet. Dogs really enjoyed their self running around the big garden.

Thanks so much for your review; we thrilled that you and your four-legged friends enjoyed your stay! We couldn't agree more with you - the views from this property are simply breath-taking. We're sorry that you felt the annexe could have been better; we've received your questionnaire and we'll discuss the points with the owners. Tressa, Customer Support

A great venue for a family gathering with ample space to get together or have quiet time to yourself. The view is outstanding making even rainy days feel special. Lots of facilities to keep everyone entertained.
Mr Thompson May 2019
It is the perfect place to have a special celebration with family and friends. A perfect place to relax with beautiful views on all sides of the cottage.

We are a walking group of seven men and a dog. The property and location were ideal for what we wanted. We used it as a base for walking part of the South West coastal path (from Lyme Regis to Paignton). The bedroom and bathroom facilities were more than adequate for our needs. The kitchen and dining area made it easy to prepare meals on the evenings we decided to eat in. Good local bars and restaurants are only a short drive away. There is plenty of space to relax in comfort and watch TV, if you want to. We also had great fun using the games room, not to mention enjoying the spectacular views across the Teign estuary and down towards Teignmouth! All in all, an excellent property in a great location.
Mrs Avis April 2019
Wonderful place for a large family reunion. Accommodation was perfect and annex handy for not-so-good-sleeping 20 month toddler (and parents!) We all enjoyed the hot tub and loved Shaldon with its botanical gardens and zoo.
Mrs Smith April 2019
Noisy water heater going through the night in the cottage. Tumble drier would have been good. Beds were comfortable and sheets good quality.

Thanks for reviewing Meadowcliff. We're sorry that you found the water system noisy at night - we don't appear to have received similar comments however we will of course monitor this. A tumble drier is not an advertised feature at this property. We do appreciate that it may be a useful addition and have forwarded your suggestion for the owners consideration for future improvements. Alison, Customer Support

I came here with my family to celebrate my birthday 11 of us and dogs. I couldn’t have asked for a better place although the roads were very narrow approaching the property, but that is Devon for you. The hot tub was a definite hit and the scenery spectacular. We all had a wonderful time thanks to beautiful Meadowcliff.
Mr Huckle October 2018
We had a fabulous week helped by the weather & beautiful location of Meadowcliff. The house was a lovely place for our family to meet up & relax. Shaldon is a great village with Teignmouth across the bridge if bigger shops were required. We would love to go back to explore the area more.
Miss Grey September 2018
The house and grounds were superb and were well kept and looked after. The views were lovely overlooking the river. There was everything you needed to make it a very enjoyable stay.
Miss Hampton August 2018
We had a lovely family holiday in a beautiful house with an amazing view, would love to come back again as did not want to leave
Mrs Powell July 2018
Meadowcliff is in an excellent location with stunning sea views and extensive gardens. The access to the beach is a huge bonus and we, especially the children in our party thoroughly enjoyed our little visits to it. The house is spacious, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. It was easily big enough for the 6 adults and 5 children in our party. We had BBQ's, played pool in the Games Room, had picnics on the lawns and there was room for lots of garden fun. The annexe cottage is a delight and was a holiday within a holiday for the Grandparents as it is so peaceful and totally self contained. We loved our holiday at Meadowcliff and were reluctant to leave. It is close to Shaldon Village which is a lovely and quaint with shops and a perfect family beach. There are many fascinating areas to explore near to Meadowcliff. We would highly recommend it.
Mr Dryburgh July 2018

Mr Dryburgh July 2018
