Overview

Architecturally imagined and built using a combination of steel, glass and stone, this extraordinary house with its sculptural lines and inspired outdoor space offers luxurious living and blissful escapism to one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Devon.

Designed to host large groups of friends and family, Golden Meadow is a celebration home where plush interiors, rivalled only by the encompassing views of Start Bay, exude elegance and comfort throughout. Flagstone terraces, low stone walls and soft-glow lighting lend a distinctly Mediterranean feel to the home’s outdoor areas where unobstructed panoramic views of both the sea and countryside create an away-from-it-all atmosphere and make for the perfect places to share conversation, sunset views and glasses of champagne.

Boasting luxe furnishings, bespoke décor and unique design elements, the interior includes a sweeping entrance hall with open fireplace and occasional seating while at the centre of the space, a mid-century spiral staircase leads to the property’s upper and lower floors. Seven beautifully spacious bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a cinema room and several reception rooms have been individually styled using a combination of textures and fabrics that work together to lend a tactile and boutique-esque edge to every room. Carved wall panelling, luxurious sofas, textile wallpaper, eclectic artwork and creative lighting infuse each area with its own mood, whether enhancing the sumptuousness of the bedrooms or the cosiness of the downstairs cinema room.

Central to this home’s design are the spaces for entertaining and socialising in. The kitchen with its marble splashback, honed silestone countertops, oak flooring and Provencal table is wonderfully equipped to create anything from freshly baked batches of scones to lavish roast dinners, and sports a lacquered breakfast bar island with contemporary stainless steel stools and pendulum lighting. A huge dining room with floor to ceiling glass framed by floaty gauze curtains makes the ideal space to share evening meals, and on warm evenings the integral sliding doors can be opened to reveal an elevated terrace with a stone top table, artisan seating and glass balustrade.

Positioned within easy reach of the clear, calm waters and sun-bleached beaches that line the South Hams coast as well as being only a short drive from the naval town of Dartmouth, this gorgeous home offers guests a magical escape to one of the most sought-after destinations in the country.

Golden Meadow also includes The Workshop; a separate, self-contained one bedroom studio apartment so that guests needing a little extra privacy will have the perfect pad to retreat to.

Great property - not so well maintained.
3.8/5

A fantastic property and location is somewhat spoilt by the cleanliness, tired worn furniture and poorly maintained gardens.

Outstanding property and that's not hyperbole
5/5

This is the most amazing house. Looks better in real life than in the pictures. I defy anyone to find a property with a better view. But the interior is gorgeous too - feels very high end and more distinctive than the interiors of rental properties normally are. We loved it - 5 stars all the way.

Wonderful house in an idyllic location
4.8/5

We spent a lovely week in Golden Meadow in October with close family to celebrate a very Big Birthday. The house is hugely impressive with simply amazing views out to sea and numerous delightful terraces. One of our party with mobility issues spent hours gazing out over the meadows to the lagoon and sea, taking in the fantastic bird life. Some of our more hardy members went sea-swimming and found themselves upstaged by a passing seal! There are several excellent pubs and eateries within a short distance and we ate very well there. We would certainly return to this property but there are a few things which need attention. We found directions to the property inadequate and then when we eventually found it we had to request instructions as to where we would find the keys as this bit of vital information wasn’t contained in the blurb. Several bits of equipment in the kitchen are in need of repair (the hob and the extractor fan). Several chairs in various parts of the property are worn through and need reupholstering, particularly on the arms. A large table light in the kitchen didn’t work. Toilet roll holders are loose and wobbly in most bathrooms. These are minor quibbles as we thoroughly enjoyed the week but a little tlc would be all to the good. All in all, a wonderful house in a perfect location and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Gregory, 20 Oct 2023

Hi Gregory, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on your recent stay with us.

Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

A wonderful location with views to die for!
4.3/5

Who could fail to be impressed by the view as you enter the well equipped kitchen. With comfortable chairs around the table and doors to the outside it was no surprise that we spent most of our time here. The children enjoyed the cinema room on the wet days, and when they were exhausted from running around the beaches. The house is excellent for a multi-generational holiday such as ours, but it could do with a little TLC, as could the garden.

Margaret, 01 Sep 2023

Hi Margaret, thank you for leaving your review. We take your feedback on board about the garden and will ensure to make improvements. We are so pleased you enjoyed the cinema room and kitchen! Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team.

May 1/2 term stays
3.5/5

Great views and good size property The local support team were excellent and very responsive when needed Improvements: Needs a deep clean as there was dust and dirt which looked like it had been there a long time Would benefit from a TV in the main lounge and main kitchen Cinema was very dusty and dirty, so much so the dust was visible in the air Parking is limited to 3 cars - though this is an fyi for future guests and should be made clear in the description of the property as there is no overflow parking nearby Curtains in the kitchen did not close fully which made it uncomfortable when the sun was coming blazing in and curtains in the main lounge did not close fully which made it impossible at night to block on the early morning light in the twin bedroom on the lower ground floor.

Asif, 17 Jun 2023

Hello Asif, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad you enjoyed the views and had a good relationship with the local team.

Great view, but tired “luxury”
2.7/5

Firstly the view is fantastic, simply can’t beat it! But sadly so many things fell short. Firstly when we arrived it clearly hadn’t been cleaned. The floors were thick with dirt and needed cleaning again- not how you want to start a holiday. The glasses were filthy, the sides still marked with teas, really the worst place we have ever stayed for cleaning something you don’t expect when paying for a premium, that was certainly lacking! The furniture is also past it’s best with so much wear, stained furniture and furnishings, screws out the back of the chairs( unsafe for kids) and the chairs sinking due to being so past best when you sit in them. The worst thing probably was the stench coming from the showers, we had a Plummer out but nothing helped, which we did inform them of, having to stay for a week without being able to sleep without the window open as the smell is so terrible it doesn’t scream luxury! This was booked for a special holiday and sadly there were so so many issues that made it not what it should have been. I sadly wouldn’t recommend unless there is something seriously done to address issues.

Megan, 21 Apr 2023

The best holiday ever!
4.8/5

10 of us, from 4 to 82 + a dog! What could possibly go wrong? Well, apart from not one but two broken down cars, one being towed 300 miles back home, absolutely nothing! Declared by all to be "the best holiday ever!" We loved the kitchen, so much so that we only spent one evening as a group downstairs in the lounge. The 4 yr old was gobsmacked when he discovered the house had a cinema! Loved spending time in there with his favourite cousin, eating chocolate. It's what Easter is all about! Took us a while to work out the audio system, but when we did, a very jolly post-dinner singalong with the music raining down from the speakers in the kitchen ceiling made some great memories! The teenager girls each having their own bathrooms was, to them, pure joy, and to the rest of us, a great relief that we didn't have to share, or wait!!! The view from the windows as night fell was amazing...Grandad explained The Terminator, and even the teenagers listened to him! Big fridge/wine store, boot room, lots of ovens, space and views through the telescope all added to the pleasure!

Sheila, 17 Apr 2023

Hi Sheila, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review. It sounds like you and your family had an absolute blast, and made so many memories together. We are glad there was something for everyone from the youngest to the oldest and are pleased to have been a small part of "the best Holiday ever" and we hope we can welcome you back in the future for more memory-making, Best Wishes - Luxury Coastal

Long weekend
4.3/5

Thoroughly enjoyed our reunion of 12 adults at Golden Meadow. Superb location with stunning views and close to great pubs, walks, Stokely Farm shop plus beaches. Golden Meadow was spotlessly clean and luxurious, however surprised to have mainly double beds. Perhaps the provision of more Kingsize beds or two singles would have made the accommodation far more comfortable.

Gay, 08 Feb 2023

Hi Gay, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Golden Meadow. It is so wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay and the stunning views from the property. Sorry to hear the beds weren't as you expected. We would love to welcome you to stay with Luxury Coastal again in the future. Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team
