Meon House

Meon House The South Coast

A New England gem in the heart of Hampshire

Space and light are abundant at this beautiful New England style house, situated in an enviable position within in the South Downs National Park. Sleeping up to 16 guests (most suited to groups with at least 4 children) in seven stunning bedrooms, the house is flooded with natural light, which streams through floor-to-ceiling ‘A’ frame windows. Large and stylishly furnished rooms with gable ceilings flow into one another, from the grand entrance hall, to the spacious and convivial living room, to the luxury, open-plan kitchen. Downstairs, a heated, indoor swimming pool opens out to a paved patio and five acres of manicured gardens. There’s also a sauna, a games room and a huge, wraparound timber decking area for al fresco socialising. Spend your days exploring the local area; the South Downs National Park is on your doorstep, the historic naval towns of Portsmouth and Southampton are nearby, and we highly recommend a visit to Hambledon Vineyard. For complete relaxation, book our exclusive chef service and luxurious spa treatments, all at your service at Meon House.

House FAQs

  • Are there private chefs that can cater for us during our stay?

    Yes, while there is a well-equipped kitchen for self-catering at Meon House, we can put you in touch with some very good local private chefs that can cater for you and your guests for a special celebratory meal, or for every meal during your stay

  • Are children welcome?

    Yes! The house is well-suited to children with a cot and highchair available.

  • Can I book an online supermarket delivery?

    Yes, you can arrange for a local supermarket to deliver to the property any time during your stay. We ask that the time booked is after your check-in time, as it’s possible the house-keeper won’t be at the property before that time.

    The check-in time is 4pm on the day of your arrival, and check-out is at 10am on the day of your departure. 

    We’re occasionally asked for a late check-out, and while this is sometimes possible (with an extra fee of £200 up to 2.30pm), we can usually only confirm this on the week before your stay as it can sometimes depend on whether guests are booked in after your stay.

    Yes, up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome.

    The closest train station to Meon House is Botley (7 miles), Portchester (7.5 miles) or Fareham (8 miles).
