Meadowgate - Kirstie’s pride and joy…

What a delightful location, completely unspoilt - all peace, calm and tranquillity and just a short walk from the beach. It has to be one of the best settings for a family holiday this summer - or any time of the year for that matter.

You’ll find Meadowgate just over ½ mile from Welcombe Mouth cove, surrounded by meadows and woods. This totally secluded detached house, belonging to Kirstie Allsopp and featured in her Channel 4 show 'Kirstie's Homemade Home', stands in its own big garden and is set back from the little-used access lane - if a car goes down that road once every 30 minutes then it’s rush hour!

Welcombe Mouth cove is a short walk down a National Trust path through woods, which are now a sea of bluebells. The path runs alongside the river and then rises up a little so that you have a wonderful view of the sea. You can also drive down to the beach, so send Dad ahead with all the picnic and beach gear! It’s a sensational cove set between spectacular cliffs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Meadowgate has been completely renovated, brought to life and made into a charming home full of colour, fun and family comfort (you may have followed its progress on Kirstie’s show). Just about everything has been provided for your comfort and convenience. It’s a smashing house in a stunning location.
