“Perfect cosy family getaway”
Reviewed 27 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We had a lovely weekend at the Stables. The accommodation is fantastic, everything you’ll need as well as some additional extra touches. Thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub with the beautiful views! The owners kindly let us check out late as they didn’t have any new guests arriving.

“Peaceful, private & perfect”
Reviewed 22 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The location, accommodation and hosts are fantastic. It is so peaceful and private, the view is beautiful and the hot tub is even good in the rain! We had a great few days with friends & their dogs. Lots of nice walks, the pubs are lovely, friendly & accept dogs (I suggest you book if you want to eat). The hosts are helpful and on hand if needed but also leave you to enjoy your stay. We are already confirming dates to go back. Would definitely recommend.

“Beautifully relaxing break”

person found this review helpful

We have just stayed at the stables for 3 nights. It is a wonderfully charming property and the hosts were very welcoming. Our favourite part was the lovely hot tub looking out on to the countryside and we spent many hours relaxing in it. The cottage is quite remote and does require you to use a car to get around but this was not an issue. We would definitely return and our friends have already made a booking for next month!

“A paradisical haven!”
Reviewed 7 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A lovely place, enjoyed by myself, my husband, and Basil Brush (our dog!).
Wonderful spot with far-reaching views one way, and forest the other. Had wondered about track to property, having read reviews, but no problem-although we went down a bad track in error on arrival, as vehicle parked in front of one of the posts by road!
Mandy and David lovely-David's photography wonderful on walls of The Stables.
Lovely relaxing ambience-only critisism being the rickety oven door!
Mind your head on bathroom approach if tall, and remember internal steps!
Hot tub sublime. Walks from door, and easy access to places further afield.

“Quirky cottage in a great location.”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Great location with stunning views from the back of the cottage,
with the added advantage of the hot tub to take it all in.
It had everything we needed for our weeks stay. Very dog friendly, Maisy
our springer loved it.

“Perfect Family Getaway”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just a superb property with matching hosts. Idyllic setting and the stables are charming and finished to a very high standard. Whilst we always bring additional utensils and linen to any getaway these simply are not needed as everything was provided. Appliances are clean and knives are sharp!!! Unheard of!

Just loved it and will definitely be back.

Mandy & David are charming, helpful and attentive but in no way intrusive.

Worth the little bit more you have to pay for similar properties for the seclusion but easy access to amenities nearby.

Thank you.
