“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed April 1, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Our stay at the stables was everything and more that we could have asked for. Thankyou very much. We really hope to visit again, I would very highly recommend this stay to any couple looking to get a quite break away but would also encourage family’s to pick this place as a get away. Ali and her partner could not of been more friendly or helpful. Like I have mentioned I hope to return in the near future as it truly was amazing.

“Super cosy and relaxing perfect holiday getaway in the hills”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We stayed for 5 nights over Christmas and were delighted by the level of detail in the Stable. It's been renovated to a high standard with burly central heating and a log fire. We were toasty even with the snow outside.

The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking our Christmas dinner. We were even greeted by some delicious homemade jams and chutneys, bread and cake.

Ali was friendly and very helpful with suggestions for places to check out.

The location is great for rambling around the Black Mountains or visiting Hay on Wye.

Overall, highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review. We really enjoy decorating the barns for Christmas and making them warm and cosy for visitors. We are lucky to have such great views and walks from the doorstep - I hope the snow made it more atmospheric for you!

“Fabulous”
Reviewed November 16, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We have never written a review before - and quite frankly are a bit reluctant to write one now. Cothill Stable was so absolutely perfect that we want to keep it a secret, but that would be too selfish. An absolutely fabulous place to stay - just don't be there when we want to go again.

“A gem of a holiday”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was the first time we had visited this part of the country and we were awed by its beauty and varied landscapes.
The stable itself was terrific - spacious, comfortable and kitted out with all mod cons. The farm is a delight - with ducks and chickens stationed opposite the front door, swallows speeding this way and that, and sheep grazing in the fields. To cap it all the garden has wonderful views over the valley and towards the black mountains.
The shepherds hut is brilliant to escape to with a good book.
I can't think of anything that I didn't like about this place - it has great things to offer to both young families and those of us who like to take things a bit more slowly.

Thank you so much for such a glowing review - we agree that this area in the Welsh borderland is very special - but we are biased! It was great to meet you and your lovely mother and hope to see you again in the future.

“Best Easter break ever!”
Reviewed April 28, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What a fabulous find the stables at Cothill was. We had an excellent time here for our little Easter break. The cottage itself was just gorgeous with every tiny thing thought about. After a long drive, the welcome basket of fresh bread, homemade cake, chutney, jam, some chocolate and fresh eggs was gratefully received. We loved the roaring fire, the vintage knick knacks, the shepherd's hut, the ducks and chickens and sheep. The shower was luxurious! In fact, I can't think of even one thing to criticise. It was perfect! Will definitely go again and highly recommended this place. Thank you Ali for such a great holiday x

“High quality accomodation with stunning scenery”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The property is perched high up well away from the minor road below - so peace and quiet is guaranteed. The view from the garden over The Golden Valley towards The Black Mountains is lovely - especially when sat outside with a glass of wine. The owners Farmhouse is close by, but in no way intrusive. Ali is a friendly host, there if you need to ask anything. I would say rather than a stable the size of the property is more accurately described as converted barn. Plenty of room for four people. On my visit there were two of us and our dog Dyson. The master bedroom is a very good size with a drench shower in the en suite that once in I took some persuading to come out again. There is a good size bath in the twin bedroom's en suite if you fancy a soak. Downstairs toilet as well - so no fear of queuing! The kitchen is high tech / modern with a breakfast bar. The feel of the entire property is a good mix of traditional and to date which fits well. Linen, towels and cushions etc are of good quality - better than most 4* hotels I have stayed in. Have to mention the lemon cake that comes with the welcome pack - I don't have a sweet tooth but was converted for this treat. Adjacent the property is a fenced off area with ducks and chickens that we both found very amusing - some interesting characters amongst them (calling and running ducks I learnt were two breeds from talking with Ali). The garden of The Stable is well fenced off and our hound always remained enclosed. I have stayed in 20+ holiday rental / cottages and have to say this is definitely the best quality accommodation so far. Location wise, we took our bikes and there are some nice rides direct from the farm. The drive/track from the road to The Stables is a bit of a challenge. The Black and White villages ride is scenic easy cycling with nice pubs along the route - need to take bikes to start point. The Bridge Inn is 10 minutes drive or 25 minutes on the bike with a good climb. We stored our cycles in the utility room which is secure. To drive to Hay on Wye or Hereford is about 12 miles. Leominster, Ross on Wye and Ledbury within easy driving range. Nearly forgot to mention the shepherds hut in the garden, same standard inside as The Stable. As there is a heater it was nice to sit in there a couple of evenings with the top half of the door open - all you could hear were swallows, ducks and the occasional sheep. 7 night stay - total relaxation.

Thank you so much for such a glowing review. It was lovely to meet you and Dyson the dog. You were blessed with wonderful weather in which to enjoy some of the long list of things there are to do in the area. I am glad you made use of the shepherd's hut - there is now a screech owl in the oak next to it, calling in the evenings!

person found this review helpful

We stayed at The Stable in July 2014 having stayed at the main barn at Christmas. The barns have been creatively and beautifully restored making our stay here truely enjoyable. Both barns were fully equipped and both had wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.
We could not have asked for anything more-however Ali is also a wonderful cook and provided us with cake, marmalade and chutney-yummy!
We will definitely be back.
