Stable Cottage is the perfect retreat. Just what we needed to really get away from it all. We loved eating our meals out on the veranda and then sitting watching the ducks and their antics on the lawn. The cottage itself was comfortable and cosy and a delight to stay in. Susie and James were excellent. We just didn't want to leave! We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely week long stay at Stable Cottage. The cottage was well equipped, warm and comfortable, located on a farm amongst the ducks, horses and guinea fowl. Even though we didn't have the greatest of weather we visited some lovely spots and enjoyed walks along the many rivers and over the moor. A good choice of nice pubs locally too.
Lovely tucked away cottage. Warm and very comfortable. Ideal for exploring and walking Dartmoor which was just what we wanted. We stayed a week and could have stayed much longer. Will definitely book again.
We were struck by the attention to detail throughout the cottage - particularly ensuring that we were warm and comfortable. The central heating, log fire, effective shower and great bed with electric blanket all meant that we were warm and cosy during cold weather.
James and Susie made us very welcome so we definitely plan to stay again
You could hardly ask for more in a holiday cottage than Stable Cottage offers: wonderful wood fires, stunning surroundings, flawless internet connection (good enough to stream YouTube for small boys needing tractor videos!) and the loveliest hosts imaginable. These are the reasons we regularly return to Hookner and Stable Cottage; the peace and quiet, the restfulness of a simple but comfortable cottage, the delight of the small everyday goings on of a farm around you, well mannered farm dogs that have taught my children to be cautious but comfortable around them, and the endlessly welcoming hosts make it unbeatable. Every year we have found that Susie and James manage to perfectly blend welcoming and helpful attentiveness with a knack for giving us the space to enjoy a family holiday without feeling that we impose on them or they on us. It would be impossible to ask for more and I urge anyone to visit who wants to see more of Dartmoor. We regularly have a fortnight there with 7 of us using the cottage as a base (the owners allow you to add to your accommodation by bringing a tent!) and it has always been perfect. And if you do need anything, from help if something goes wrong in the cottage to an extra pot to make a big dinner of pasta, they are incredibly accommodating and thoughtful. I can't recommend it enough.
The place was as described in the advert. Clean, comfortable and a great base to explore Dartmoor. The woodburner was particularly welcoming. Ducks, dogs, horses and chickens are on your doorstep. The owners are really welcoming and helpful. The wifi dropped out for a few days (being right at the end of the line), but it was actually quite nice to fully disconnect.
