What a brilliant place to escape too. Cosy and luxurious, fabulous loft bed and amazing copper jacuzzi bath.
We also did a have day bread making course, hosted by the wonderful Sherry.
I didn't want to share this review initially because I wanted to keep this find to myself . . . We'll be back!
The four of us stayed in the hayloft for a long weekend. The welcome pack was amazing with some of the most incredible tasting home made jam and a wonderful wine from a local brewery included. Some of which I purchased to take home.
Irwin was so welcoming making sure we had every thing we needed and answered any questions we had about the local area.
The hayloft it’s self was incredible. So homely and comfortable with a touch of Luxury. The tin bath with bubbles and twinkling lights was a fabulous indulgence. They seemed to think of everything you would need for your stay to make it extra special. From the family games, hot water bottle, all the cooking utensils and organic soaps. There wasn’t any thing I needed that wasn’t already there.
We will definitely be back, hopefully with some more of the family and enjoy the Bothy too.
I can not recommend this stay enough and can’t wait to return.
Had a very comfortable few nights stay in the Hayloft, Sherry was a great hostess and generously supplied so many tasty extras which were really appreciated by us all. Place was kitted out with everything you could possibly need.
Just got back from my 6th stay at the Hayloft. Absolutely love the place.Cosy comfortable . Luxury accommodation. Organic welcome pack and bathroom goodies . Make it all that more special.
If you want a bit of me time Or a romantic retreat This is your place ...

And is a great shopping / foodie place. With a wonderful kinema in the woods .. Please don't hesitate in booking .You won't be disappointed. . 5 star in my eyes ..
We booked the hayloft through the website of The Manor Stables. We loved the idea of the service they provided. To be sure I emailed the owner before we arrived if coffee and thee would be available like it said on the website. She confirmed we only had to bring ourselves. She would welcome us when we arrive and make a meal for our first night. A few days before we arrived we received an email she wasn't at home the day we arrived (we booked months ahead) and we were told where to find the key. She also wasn't able to cook the meal we booked.
As we arrived we did like the look of the hayloft, cozy like on the photos. Alas dust was everywhere, as it was cold we wanted to put the heating on but that didn't work so we had to call an emergency number to help us out. The husband stopped by after work to explain how the heating worked. He also told us the shower didn't work properly and that it was the fault of the cleaner (no check of what the cleaner does) that there was no coffee or thee available. we had to rush to the shop. The bed was also way too small for 2 adults, I had to sleep in the other bed as there was no room enough for my husband and myself. On top of it all, we received another email of the owner that she wouldn't be able to say goodbye! So no welcome and no goodbye.. the service is not what they said it would be. Even though of all these down parts we did have a lovely stay, as it was a cozy place!
Really enjoyed my stay with my parents. I stayed in the bed under the stairs which was surprisingly comfy despite being tall!
The bath and shower was wonderful. A real treat. We struggled with the cooker a little as we've never used a range before but got the hang of it eventually! But we ate out for most meals anyway.
The cupboards were packed which was useful but meant there wasn't much space for things we'd brought. There could be an empty cupboard in the kitchen to make room for any food bought for cooking there.
It was mostly really clean but a little dusty around light fittings and round the toilet hard to reach bits. Only reason for 4 and not 5 stars was this and the storage.
last minute booking, first time visit. We booked this last minute with the most accommodating owner Sherry, our visit was warm and welcoming. Sherry has catered for everything, accommodation was of good quality furniture, clean and inviting. The food hampers and extra touches of wine, flowers and chocolates were most appreciated. The surroundings were peaceful and tranquil which is exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries. Nothing seemed to much trouble for Sherry and Irven. A lovely couple with a charming holiday let. Would definitely recommend.
