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.

This was our third visit to The Stables. It is a charming place. The building is full of character and very welcoming and the garden is a delightful place to sit and read or just absorb the atmosphere. Sally Ann and her husband are natural hosts, friendly and attentive and charming people.

I can't say enough how perfect this place was for me. It is a country sanctuary, a hideaway of sorts, in the midst of friendly comings and goings. House is superb and full of character, and the garden is everything one needs to feel calm, English, and inspired.

We were greeted by Sally and her lemon drizzle cake - a very thoughtful gift for us who had been traveling all day. As we were visiting family, we did not have enough time to savor the garden which is a delight to sit in. We slept well and woke to the sun. It is a charming place. Thanks, Sally Defe and Steve

Perfect little bolthole!
It is quaint and welcoming. There are lots of characterful touches everywhere, some of which hark back to when it was the original Stables (the front door is a stable door, for instance), whilst there are others that have been lovingly adapted by Sally Ann; you can see lots of her creativity and design flair throughout. The furniture blends well and, for a bolthole, you still get a decent sense of space and flow. All in all, very functional and very comfortable for a short stay. The gardens, immediately outside, are well tended and quiet and, for those with dogs, you are allowed to make use of the extended gardens further away from the Stable itself. Sally Ann is a delight! She was unobtrusive yet completely ready to help or provide advice on things to do and where to go. Her communication from start to finish was first-rate and she is a fantastic host (you will be offered a continental breakfast that she puts together herself - take it, the homemade jams and marmalades were delicious!). Easy to recommend The Stables and when we're back in the area we'll be rebooking!

Cosy country hideaway
Sally Ann could not have done more to accommodate us and make us feel wonderfully welcome during our short stay. The stable was very cosy with lots of lovely homely touches and extras such as milk, cake and biscuits on arrival and the optional extra of a huge bacon bap breakfast! Some areas could do with a deep clean (carpet/bathroom/kitchen) to bring it up to Covid 19 standards and the sofa bed was really only fit for one - uncomfortable for two. But that is just nit-picking! We had a lovely stay and were made very welcome.
