Meon House

Meon House The South East

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 the South Downs National Park. Sleeping up to 15 guests (where the group includes at least 2 children) in six 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 onto 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.

Guest Reviews

We had the best time ever at Meon House. The Big House Experience were incredible from start to finish. The very worst part was having to leave it! My 70th birthday celebration at Meon with all my children and grandchildren will never be forgotten.

House FAQs

  • What are the check-in and check-out times?

    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 £400 up to 3pm), 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Are children welcome?

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

  • Do you accept pets? 

    One small dog (max) is allowed at Meon House, subject to a fee of £100 and only with prior agreement with the property owner. The dog breed must be disclosed at the time of booking. No dogs are allowed in any of the bedrooms or on the soft furnishings and must sleep downstairs in a room agreed with the house owner (usually the utility room).

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

  • Do you hold a cautionary deposit?
