Falmouth, TR11 5HT
Nestling on the south Cornwall coast in thickly wooded countryside between
the famous ‘Packet’ harbour of Falmouth and romantic Helford estuary, Meudon
is a unique family run luxury hotel set in
a timeless sub-tropical valley
leading to its own private sea beach at Bream cove.
Meudon takes its name from
the nearby farmhouse built by Napoleonic prisoners of war and called after
their eponymous home village in the environs of Paris.
Formerly a private mansion built at the turn of the century, Meudon incorporates
two 17th century
coastguard cottages, making an unusual blend of a gracious Cornish country
house and a modern hotel.
The original building, for which the gardens were so lavishly laid out,
were never finished – only the chapel.
