Guestbook comments from the manager

October 13 2013. Border and Jervis Family. Middlesex.

''We came here to celebrate my sixtieth birthday. What a wonderful venue, well equipped and very much a ‘home from home’. A great escape, hope to come back for another visit.''

August 28 2013. The Grahams. Hampshire.

''Two weeks in a super house and in a super location. There were six adults and five children for the first week and down to four adults and three children for the second week. The weather was mostly kind to us and we all loved the beaches. We all had lots of fun. Superb walking here too, especially the coastal walks. The house was large enough for us all to have space and to congregate as a family. Thank you for making our holiday.''

Doherty Family London

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9adults 4children . We were delighted with the house that we found very clean, comfortable and fitted us all well. We were there for a wedding so didn't get to take advantage of the activities. Would like to visit again and certainly would recommend it. The only downside, was lack of phone signal in the house that was a bit annoying. Lovely Devon.

Terrific venue

  • 5 of 5

We went to The Stables to celebrate my mum's 80th. It's a terrific property, really nicely refurbished with care and attention. Spacious enough for our large group, yet cosy enough to sit around the kitchen and chat, and all eat together in the dining room. The Games Room and tennis court are a real plus. I'd really recommend it.

Great long weekend for a birthday celebration!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage itself and the location was perfect, near the big super markets but still away and in the rural cottage strip. There were 12 of us majority being couples and we all loved the ensuit facilities. Kitchen facilities and utensils were perfect. The floors were heated and were perfect for the cold and rainy weather. The owners even left a home made cake and wine as a welcome gift which was a great touch. As we all took the day of work to check out on a Monday we asked if we could check out a little later and Pat was very accommodating allowing us. The only downside but minor points were the beds could have been a little comfier and less noisy, the games room was great but could also be made a little comfier, the wifi was a hit and miss, we couldn't really access wifi in any of the bed rooms so maybe stronger wifi signals would have been good. Overall we would highly recommend this property for any large groups looking to get away from the city for a little relaxing holiday.

Fantastic for Family Gathering

  • 4 of 5

The Stables property was amazing! It's large and tastefully equipped, and Pat made us feel very welcome. There was even a homemade cake and wine when we arrived!! We loved the bedrooms and en-suites, although the mattresses in all rooms were noisy and not very comfortable. Mattress toppers would be a lovely addition. The twin room downstairs would benefit from a power point near the mirror for hairdryer use and the en-suite could do with a shaver point.

The large lounge, dining and kitchen areas were absolutely perfect for our family gathering! The kitchen is amazingly equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, food processor, 5 ring cooker with double oven, large fridge/freezer and a wine/drinks cooler which was much appreciated as we were lucky enough to have fantastic weather for our visit and cold drinks were a must!

The communal games room with it's darts, table tennis, table football and air hockey was a joy to have as the children could take themselves off to play on their own. One very minor point, some of the table tennis bats are a little tired and need replacing. The tennis court is well maintained and was a great addition to this property. Even though these areas were communal, we didn't have to wait to use them at all which was brilliant.

We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this property to anyone!

Stag stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 10 friends and family for my stag do. The stables gave more than ample space and excellent facilities of games room and tennis court. It was an excellent location close to essentials but still rural. We all had a fantastic time and were blessed with fantastic weather.

A great place to stay.
