Perfect for a family visit. Great hosts who made us feel very welcome.
Great to be able to bring our dog.
we all had a great time exploring the surrounding area.
would thoroughly recommend. Spotlessly clean a home from home.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

From start to finish our experience of Stable Cottage has been excellent. Booking was easy and Simon and Debbie answered all of our questions promptly and provided good instructions for getting to the property.
We had a warm welcome and were pleasantly surprised with the amount of extras that had been provided for our use (biscuits, juice, fresh eggs from the resident hens etc). The garden is huge and provided much entertainment for our 3 year old. As well as the hens we saw sparrows, a robin, cats, bats and a squirrel. A great space to have your meal time.
The cottage was spotless and well equipped.
We loved our stay and are definitely going to book again.

“Lovely village home with friendly owners and dog / children friendly”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a beautifully converted stable in the village of Retford. The owners Simon and Debbie were very friendly, and it was easy to book. There were lovely welcoming touches like the fresh eggs (from their hens), bread, milk, juice, fruit and cereal which helps a family travelling with young children.

The home was perfect for a couple and 2 children; light and airy and plenty of room to roam around in the garden, with welcome seating in the sunshine. The added bonus were the hens and the little one enjoyed watching them!

We had a lovely time and would highly recommend a visit. We hope to be back!

“Homely taste of life in the country”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beautiful detached apartment apart from the main house giving you privacy and your own space. Loved the little touches like fresh eggs on arrival and so helpful to find the fridge stocked with milk and butter. The surrounding area is beautiful and great for exploring Sherwood Forest. The owner made us feel really welcome and gave us tips for things to do. Would definitely stay here again.
