Broadmeadows comprises the major part of Broadmeadows House, including the main entrance and first and second floor principle rooms of the house which are raised above ground level (please see images) and are therefore not overlooked. The adjoining apartments are entirely separate units formed from the former servants’ quarters below and attic rooms above. The owners live in one of the apartments and are on hand to ensure guests get the best from their stay but are equally keen to protect the privacy of guests. Please note that the gardens and grounds are not for exclusive use of guests at Broadmeadows as the other occupants of the house also have access.
