The Property Meaford Hall is an imposing country residence with considerable history. The Hall dates back to the late 17th century when the Estate was acquired by William Jervis of Chatcull. It remained at the heart of the Jervis family for well over approx. 250 years and it was the birthplace of Admiral John Jervis, later 1st Earl St Vincent, hero of the defeat of the Spanish at the Battle of Cape St Vincent in 1797.
We understand the Hall was extended and refurbished by Lady Forester, daughter of Edward Jervis Jervis, 2nd Viscount St Vincent in the late 19th century. The house was sold in 1943 and occupied by a variety of groups which include the United States Forces. After a period of unoccupation and neglect the Hall was restored by a new owner and reopened around 1997.
The house has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment programme and is now appointed and presented to an extremely high standard and offers truly outstanding accommodation throughout.
The property occupies a most attractive site of about 20 acres and incorporates spacious refurbished Cottages with private gardens and garages and separate access. The leisure suite incorporates the swimming pool, gymnasium, entertainment room and garaging for four cars.
