“Fantastic Property”
Reviewed January 30, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Hursey Gate Stables is a lovely place to stay, ideal for exploring Dorset. The accommodation is very tastefully done, and has everything you need. Being able to feed the animals is a lovely addition, and I have never experienced such friendly sheep before! The owners were really helpful despite us booking at very short notice. They are on site if needed, but it's not intrusive and the stables feel very private. We will come back to Dorset one day, and would definitely stay here again.

“Lovely accommodation”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Hursey Gate Stables for one week with our two dogs.

The accommodation is of a really good standard, being a very well renovated stable block with a lovely light open plan feel. Inside are all mod cons including a well equipped kitchen (with dishwasher and washing machine), comfortable sofas, broadband at a small additional cost and Sky TV. The shower had excellent water pressure. Owner John is friendly and welcoming and helpful basics are provided such as dishwaher tablets, milk, tea towels, and hand wash by the sinks.

Our favourite aspect was the rear of the stables. French doors open onto a decked veranda, small stock fenced garden area and views over the paddock. This is occupied by friendly and inquisitive sheep, pygmy goats and pot bellied pigs, who can be fed.

Broadwindsor is a lovely village with good road access to many tourist sites as well as beautiful quiet countryside walks right from the front door. There is a useful shop and pub in short walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come again.

“Hursey Gate Stable is the ideal place to get away from it all”

If you are looking for home comforts in an ideal setting with friendly sheep and goats as neighbours, Hursey Gate Stable is the place for you. Perfect for self catering made easy with all mod cons and plenty of hot water and all on one level. Local community shop and White Lion Pub within 10 minute walk serving local foods with friendly service, at reasonable prices. Owners John, Elaine, Ryan and Rosie were there when needed, but not intrusive. We had a very relaxing week visiting Bridport, West Bay, Lyme Regis and National trust properties all within short drive. Plenty of walks around Broadwindsor countryside too. Plenty to do even if not beach weather.

We have stayed at this let many times and have booked for next year. It is perfect: peaceful, tastefully furnished and well equipped accommodation with a lovely view. The animals too, are delight. Cannot recommend it highly enough; it is our favourite holiday let in Dorset - we had tried many others before finding this gem.

“Relaxed and rustic retreat”

We have just returned from a lovely break at Hursey Gate with our two young children aged two and three. The stables were a great mix of homely furnishings with high quality modern fixtures and fittings. (It seems as though the accommodation has been further upgraded since the pictures posted on TripAdvisor) The children loved feeding the animals over the back garden fence and John and Elaine and their children couldn't have been more welcoming. We were very lucky with the weather and spent three days of our week long break at Lyme Regis, which has a great soft sandy beach. We would definitely highly recommend this accommodation, and plan to return as soon as possible. The discount offered on return visitors makes a good value break all the better.
