Wonderful family getaway!
The cottage is set in the most stunning grounds and although small, was equipt with everything we could need, which is no mean feat given we were travelling with our four year old and one year old!
Jo was such a helpful and friendly host and not only let us wander around her grounds, but let us use her pool, maze and trampoline, which was amazing given the incredible weather we've been having.
If we ever visit the area again, we will be sure to return!
I'm not sure whether my last comment ever reached Homeaway. Anyway, thank you for leaving the cottage so pristine. It was good to meet you all.
We loved it!
What a great find..... this little cottage in the grounds of the Manor House is gorgeous. The maze and table football were bit hits, as were all the conkers collected for a conkers tournament! The cottage itself was lovely and clean,, and was stocked with all we needed. We had a great stay ....thank you.
It was lovely to have you all to stay and please thank your daughter for her sweet message which I have stuck into the visitors' book.
You left the cottage immaculate, for which many thanks.
A relaxing retreat in the beautiful Dorset countryside
We stopped here for two nights to break up our journey to Cornwall and were very glad we did. The stables were tastefully converted and are well equipped, making for a comfortable stay. We loved having our run of the manor: the maze was a huge hit with the kids (look out for the pool somewhere near the middle) and we made good use of the outside pool and tennis court. We'd recommend it!
Lovely Cottage in a beautiful setting
Really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. The place was perfect with all we needed. The grounds of the house were beautiful. We would definitely come back!
