The Old Stables is a one level conversion which has been carefully done to retain as much of the original character of the building as possible. Thus, there is still a wealth of exposed beams in the main living area together with traditional furnishings and modern up to date fixtures. Views from the living area look out over the farmstead green and from the garden and bedrooms out across open fields. This is a perfect place from which to explore this glorious part of 'the garden of England' being within easy reach of so many of it's outstanding features and tourist attractions and an easy walk to the station with trains to London Bridge.
A prefect 'touring' site and with every comfort.
Many thanks! - Evans family, USA 2008
We loved staying here. The Stables is charmingly rustic, well equipped and enabled us to explore much of this beautiful county. R & WB, Walton on Thames, UK 2012
Thank you for a great stay. We really enjoyed our daily walks and felt well rested by the end of our visit. Particularly enjoyed Friday night at The Greyhound! JM & GD, USA 2012
