We have been 6 times summer 2010, winter and summer 2011, summer 2012 and winter and summer 2013. All in all we... More

We have made the decision this year to not accept young children and we quite clearly state that we do not accept children under the age of 7 on our web site and feel this is a totally unnessassry usage of this review site and we feel that no apology is necessary on this occasion. More

Just spent a lovely Xmas break at the Gables. The welcome we received and the little touches of chocolates and mince pies in the room made the visit all the more special. Will happily visit again when next in the area .

Central heating, but the room also had a fan should... More
