Previous visitors' comments about The Stables:
Left in peace, no interruption. Very peaceful and couldn't ask for a better view, we were in awe of the place. Comfy, cosy and loved the fire. We didn't want to leave.

Lovely rural location with fantastic views. The owner was friendly & helpful and it was great to see chickens running around outside.
Miss Christopher, Poole, September 2012
We particularly liked the views from the property. We were left alone and undisturbed. The cottage is cosy and peaceful - an excellent base for a quiet, relaxing break. Our dogs enjoyed it too!
Mr Buckley, Torrington, February 2012
We found the stables at Brunt Knott Farm very clean & relaxing, exactly what we where looking for and a great starting point for touring the rest of the area. We would certainly consider returning again.
