About Mark & Helen Meopham

Hi, We are Mark - a retired Police Officer and Helen- a retired Optometrist .

We purchased Avon View in August 2012.

Avon View will be first and foremost our family home.

We purchased the house because of its stunning Riverside location.

It will also allow us to keep our Narrowboat at the bottom of the Garden.

We have been living aboard our Narrowboat whilst house hunting until we found Avon View.

We have recently purchased brand new furnishings for the whole house and as it will be our home it is a high level of quality and comfort, more than you would expect from a normal rental property. We hope the pictures give you some idea of what a beautiful spot this is . When you rent Avon View we will be there to greet you and answer any questions you may have, then we jump aboard our Narrowboat and cruise down the river leaving you to enjoy your time at Avon View and we are just a phone call away if you need us.

We look forward to being able to help plan your trip.

Mark & Helen Meopham purchased this house in 2012

Lovely, comfortable house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house and location. Perfect for riverside walks into Evesham. Mark and Helen were so helpful and accommodating and we wanted for nothing. Very well equipped house and spotlessly clean. We went in particular to fish but river conditions were such that it was challenging. Nevertheless, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great place in a good location. Close to a lot of pubs and restaurants. Just watching the River Avon and the boats go by is very relaxing. It is close to a busy road but you do not hear it, good sound insulation. Nice off street parking for three or more cars. Although we did not get to meet Mark and Helen they were very quick to respond to emails or phone. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Great location on River Avon

  • 4 of 5

The riverside house was a great base for exploring the Cotswolds and surrounding area. Evesham has a couple of nice grocery stores and many excellent restaurants/pubs. The house is located on a major road yet there was little noise. It is equipped with all the necessities to enjoy your stay, and the view along the River Avon is quite nice. Expect to see passing rowers, boats, swans and ducks. The back deck is great but could use more comfortable seating. Internet connection was fast and reliable. The owners were pleasant to work with and I would definitely stay in this house again.

Great property on the River Avon

  • 5 of 5

It is very obvious that ‘Avonview’ is somebody’s ‘home’ – it provided everything we needed and we much appreciated the ‘cosy’ feel.

The garden with views over the River Avon and across to the parkland opposite provided ‘entertainment’ with runners, dog walkers, rowers and the occasional pleasure boat. It is also really pleasant to be able to walk into Evesham and we found it to be a good base from which to visit the Cotswold villages and attractions.

We actually booked Avonview for a fishing/relaxing based holiday but we found daytime fishing ‘non-productive’ so gave up, but when we fished between 6pm and 10pm it was more rewarding.

We would certainly recommend this holiday home to others.
