We spent four nights at The Stables and could have stayed longer quite easily. The self contained accommodation was perfect for us, roomy, clean, well appointed and with a very comfortable and massive bed. (Just read the other reviews and 'The Stables at Owlet Hall' website to see what to expect, and what is provided).
The owners Addy and Angus were great, at hand in Owlet Hall over he yard but not obtrusive at all. The Stables are in a quiet location off the main road, although the 'Lock, Stock and Barrel' pub is next door you wouldn't know (I don't think it is a well used watering hole).
Out of the three pubs in the small town of Crowle only the Red Lion, conveniently situated a few yards down North Street opposite The Stables, sold real ale (with the Black Sheep being particularly palatable!). I would suggest that this is the pub to visit during your stay, it is clean, welcoming with friendly staff. Both the other pubs only sold John Smiths smooth along with the lagers. We had just one drink at the Lock, stock, etc. although we did eat at the White Hart a couple of times, on Thursday, which was Steak night (no other menu available) and Friday, Fish and Chip night, again that all there was, but with lovely chunky fish and crisp batter.
We wouldn't hesitate booking The Stables again, and cannot recommend the accommodation highly enough. It has all that you need for a most enjoyable stay.
