“Fantastic cottage”
Reviewed July 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just back from a weekend at The Stables. The cottage is spacious and very cosy with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large with a great shower. The hot tub was a perfect way to unwind and relax at the end of the day. The location is remote so it's very peaceful and within walking distance to pubs and restaurants. It was a brilliant weekend and I'd highly recommend The Stables to anyone

“Idillic getaway for a couple (or family)!”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Rented The Stables cottage for a romantic anniversary. The cottage is incredibly cozy, and the friendliness and hospitality of David and Mandy made the stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. Other great things: manageable drive time from London, amazing surroundings (the view from the cottage is breathtaking!). And, oh, did I mention the private outdoors hot tub?..

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

2nd visit here. Still great. Mandy and David are friendly and helpful. Available should you need them but leave you to enjoy your stay. It's very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. It's beautifully decorated and homely. The views are great over looking the fields even better when in the hot tub watching the sun set. It's a great base for walks, cycling and pub/restaurants. What I love most is that I feel like I'm million miles away from everything yet your only a few miles from everything you may wish to do. The only problem is I didn't want to leave. Great hideaway to get away from it all. Def recommend and will be back again.

Had a beautiful stay here. Mandy is lovely will assist with anything you need the stables is perfect for a relaxing weekend away loved watching the sunset in the hot tub perfect end to a day exploring the forest. Everything you could need was here and available and the garden is officially dog proof our Houdini dog tried but failed to escape. Will definitely return when the time comes to recharge our batteries again. Couldn't have asked for more! Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

“Quirky, Beautiful, Charming”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This lovely stable conversion is very tastefully renovated and beautifully furnished throughout. We thoroughly appreciated all it had to offer. Highlights were the solitude, the animals, the wildlife and the hot tub. It is a slow drive down a bumpy lane but it's worth it. The owners were attentive to our every need and we would definitely return again if visiting the area. Loved the freshly laid blue eggs and on our return home purchased two blue egg laying chickens to add to our existing brood.

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. It was very cosy, bright and open! The location is stunning which is gratefully appreciated sitting in the hot tub any time of the day. My two children were in their element! A very comfortable stay and we won't hesitate to book again if exploring the area in the future!
