My husband and I were cycling for the weekend and booked a night at the Gables. When we arrived, scruffy and tired, Stuart was so welcoming and brought us hot drinks and freshly made cake to our room. He strikes that perfect balance of being helpful and chatty but giving you space and privacy. The house has a great layout with the guest rooms on one floor, off a comfy seating area on the landing - but apart from borrowing some good magazines from there, we didn't want to leave our gorgeous room.
The bedroom and bathroom were both spotless and well equipped, and beautifully decorated.
Breakfast was freshly cooked to order, along side warm muffins and pastries, fresh berries - it was all of the best quality.
As we left, Stuart presented us with a pack up and chilled water bottles for our bike ride home - we thought that was such a generous gesture. This is a beautiful house, and one of the best places we've ever stayed.
