Cottage
Under new ownership since June 2020 and newly renovated. This wonderful historic galleried holiday property lies in the peaceful conservation village of Colerne in Wiltshire. As part of the Cotswolds, we are surrounded by stunning rolling countryside, a walkers paradise, yet only 6 miles from Bath. Within easy distance of amazing places such as Castle Combe, Lacock and Biddestone, some of England's most beautiful villages, Dyrham Park, Bradford on Avon and Badminton for the Horse Trials. Beautifully restored, the grade II* listed stable conversion is part of one of the oldest longhouses in Wiltshire dating back to the 13th century, it is also the oldest house in the village and of great historical interest. Colerne itself is a real hidden gem, perched on a hill overlooking the Box Vall...Under new ownership since June 2020 and newly renovated.

Colerne itself is a real hidden gem, perched on a hill overlooking the Box Valley towards Bath. The active village has two pubs, a village shop, cafe, hairdresser and florist. There are also bus connections to Bath and the market town of Chippenham, both providing fast train links to London. For days out, Bristol, Westonbirt Arboretum, Longleat Safari and Adventure Park, Glastonbury, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge, Tetbury and many more, are all within an easy hours drive. The Stables, with superfast WIFI, Smart TV and Smart Speaker, is a lovely relaxing place to return to after exploring the many attractions in the area. We can set up an additional small double bed in the main bedroom which would be suitable for an extra adult or two children. A well-behaved dog is welcome. An additional cost of £20 is to be paid on arrival.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Relaxing break
We had a lovely short break at Daubeneys. The property was clean and fully equipped. The bed was comfy and warm. We usually take our own pillows but they were not needed. Thank you

A lovely cottage in a friendly village.
The Stables at Daubeneys was perfect for our break. Louise had left us fresh bread, milk, butter, jam as well as tea and ground coffee for the cafetiere. Everything about the cottage was first class and spotlessly clean. The whole complex of Daubeneys is secure, so we could let our two little dogs loose in the orchard. Colerne is a lovely village with a well stocked shop and a post office that also sells local produce. The Fox and Hounds pub is directly across the road from Daubeneys and is a really friendly place where the locals make you very welcome. They serve a good menu of typical pub food at very reasonable prices and both the quality and quantity are exceptional. We were only there for 3 nights but will be back I am sure.

Just Excellent
A Perfect place to stay with dogs. The whole village was warm and welcoming, made us feel like part of the community. The Cottage is spacious with a bedroom upstairs the kitchen and lounge was more than adequate. Louise even left some provisions for our arrival, which was thoughtful. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Lovely relaxing break
We had a lovely 3 nights stay at the Stables. It was clean and tidy and nicely decorated and had all you need at the accommodation. Louise and Jim said hello when we got there then left us alone, the perfect hosts! We cooked pizza and chips on our first night , and found the oven and facilities easy to work , we used it as a base to see the area and found some nice places to visit. The bed was firm and comfortable but pillows a bit soft for our personal taste, fortunately we had brought our own v pillows with us which helped and I'm sure if we had asked they would have sorted some pillows for us. Large tv in lounge was nice for a change as most places only have a small one. The large shower was very nice with instant hot water. Over all it was a great short break , very pleased with it all.

Picture perfect, cosy countryside stay.
I can't rave about this stay enough. It was just what my husband, my son (1 Y/O), and I needed. The most beautiful, cosy accommodation, which remained true to the original beauty of the place, and had ALL the mod cons a family requires. It was pristinely clean and incredibly comfortable; the bed was divine, and the sofa was truly loungeable. Throw in the gorgeous surroundings and the most wonderful hosts, and well, we didn't want to come back to reality! We were fortunate with some gorgeous October sunshine and loved eating dinner at the bench out the front of The Stable with our little one. Would highly recommend! Great amenities for families - highchair and travel cot provided. Excellent. We can't wait to come back.

Snug , fully modernised historical property
The property is very well equipped, warm and comfortable. The accommodation is spacious with a large living area downstairs and a large bedroom upstairs. It is in the middle of Colerne which is a charming village. The nearby National Trust properties of Dyram Park and Lacock Abbey are well worth a visit and Bath with its amazing Roman Baths is not for away. Jim and Louise and very friendly and helpful hosts and we would highly recommend a stay in this lovely property.
