“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have just returned from our holiday here. Was sad to leave as such a lovely place. The views were great looking over the fields especially sat in the hot tub. Inside was nice and cosy and homely, very nicely decorated. Very peaceful and quiet, great for watching the sun set. Mandy and David were very friendly and helpful. Great location for all activities you may wish to do and close to pubs/ restaurants. We loved the fact that you felt miles away from anything, yet you were only a short distance from the villages, activities and pubs. We also had a great home cooked meal one evening. Definitely worth having if you fancy staying in. We would highly recommend staying here both for the location of the stables with its great views, peacefulness , hot tub and the location for the things you may wish to do. We will definitely be back in the future.

“Lovely! ”

Lovely location and a wonderful holiday let. I'd say it's a little bit cosy for two couples (in the winter, as the cottage is V small, in the summer you'd be enjoying the gorgeous garden more!) Great hot tub with amazing views and Mandy and David were lovely!

Only thing is the one bathroom! Not bad if one couple but not ideal to have the other traipsing through your room at night to use the facilities! But other than that, a cosy holiday home. Very warm too which is a huge plus and like I said, hot tub was great!

“Wonderful Romantics Getaway”
Reviewed February 28, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed over Valentine’s Day weekend for a couples get away, to spend some time hidden from it all, and The Stables was just what we were after!

Tucked away down a farmer’s track it offered everything we were looking for. The Stables themselves were wonderfully clean, and presented beautifully. The kitchen had everything we needed for a few home cooked meals. The views from the hot tub were just perfect.

Enough restaurant and pubs within driving/walking distance to keep us fed and occupied.

Mandy and David were just across the courtyard and where there when we needed anything.

Overall a perfect weekend, and we hope to come back in the summer to see the garden in all its glory.

“Lovely”
Reviewed February 21, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Very recently stayed at the Stables as a party of four for the weekend of the19th just to get away for a bit.
Tucked away from everything, which was just what the Dr ordered.
Nice clean and well presented accommodation with a lovely Hottub over looking a picturesque view of the country side..
Mandy and David were both very polite and helpful and arranged us a taxi to a recommended restaurant which they suggested which was very nice indeed and were very approachable if we ever had any questions. There are lots of walks close by and easily accessible from the cottage.
Would definitely recommend this to anybody thinking about getting away for a while to relax and take in the sights..

“Perfect romantic escape”
Reviewed February 20, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Had a lovely couple of days away at the Stables. The building is beautifully decorated, full of character and in a remote location. The perfect place to escape everyday life to. The hot tub is a real treat and very relaxing and warm soaking under the stars even in the freezing cold weather.

The owners are right next door and very helpful if you need anything but otherwise leave you to enjoy the break.

We both really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again.
