    • “We had a amazing 7days at the Top Stable Cottage, it is better than the excellent photos you see of it online! As we wanted to take our dog with us this was a big part of choosing the cottage along with the location,oh by the way the dog had a great time. There is plenty of room to exercise your dog in the owners fields as long as your dog is well behaved and gets on with horses! Ours fell in love with one of the horses. The owners could not do enough for you and were available if you had any problems we had none. To sum up as I have said it could not be better and we hope to stay again. Many thanks Chris,Lynn and Madi”
