Hilary and Mike are such gracious and thoughtful hosts. Everything about stable cottage was delightful and the space was perfect for me. A well equipped kitchen made cooking for one really easy and despite the very chilly weather the Stable was always a warm and cosy place to come home to. It was located perfectly for local amenities, but felt wonderfully secluded. I am looking forward to returning for a second stay!

Just the 3 nights for me as I was working in the area. I wish I could stay longer and hope to book again another time. I lovely building, very well equipped, clean, an exceptional property with friendly helpful hosts which made me feel like it was a home away from home. Really quiet, but still close to major routes. It was exactly what I needed and more.
