If you are looking for tranquility amidst a park-like setting, then welcome to Meadow Lane Country Cottages. Five self-catering cottages are surrounded by beautiful old trees, lively birds and our peacocks that love to display their colours.

The gem of Meadow Lane has got to be the beautiful dam, home to ducks, moorhens and an array of bird life. Catch and release fishing in the bass dams is welcome.

Lovely, clean accommodation within a beautiful, tranquil setting. Would highly recommend
Willem Fourie Feb 2020
We had very pleasant but short stay. We were welcomed and checked in efficiently. The cottages are quaint and rustic which for us was just perfect, but for some might seem a little tatty .Warm beds, fireplace, lovely hot water for showers and complimentary coffee, tea etc. was just perfect. The grounds are expansive and the setting beautiful. Meadowlane Cottages are well situated too. Close enough to one or two shops and restaurants but far enough away to forget all about them. I have plans for another visit with the family.

Beautifully kept gardens. An absolute oasis.Very friendly reception from Dave Moon, followed by the owner Lesley Williams. Very comfortable accommodation.
Will come back again, and will tell our fiends.
