  • "Very comfortable and well-equipped, including garden space and furniture."

    A nice countryside setting near the town of Dursley with supermarkets, restaurants and other amenities. Easy access to the Cotswolds, trails and picnic sites. Only small disadvantage was the lack of easy access from the cottage to dog walks.

    If you want a relaxing break The Stables is the place to go.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at the Stables."

    It was so comfy and stylish. It had everything we could possibly have needed. My son particularly enjoyed making hot chocolate with the milk frother! It was also a great place for our cockapoo puppy. We felt very secure letting him run around in the garden as there were no escape routes! Great place and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Thank you.

  • "I would just like to say thank you to Jayne for her attention to detail in the cottage, everything you could think of was there and more, thank you for the extra towels, quality of which is excellent unlike some other place we have stayed, the scones and clotted cream yummy, my dog settled in straight away."

    Hopefully we will come again next year. Just on a side note, the bed in the main bedroom does need looking at, seems there are 2 mattresses on it and it's just not working, not the most comfortable I'm afraid, but it won't stop us returning.

  • "Absolutely fabulous place to stay, from the scones, clotted cream, jam & proseco & under floor heating in the bathroom, could not fault any of it."

    Only comment is a non gravelled area just so the dogs can do their business would be brilliant as they didnt like walking on the gravel & the road with no footpath was to busy & dark.

    Clean, comfortable, charming and a great location. The small touches were greatly received and unexpected, a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us was a very kind gesture as well as the scones and jam, which were eaten within a few minutes of us arriving. Highly recommend The Stable..

    Jane was very helpful when I messaged about ‘bin day’ most owners are very exacting about this but she was relaxed and explained what we should do. Jane was also happy to provide extra logs and anything we needed however there was no need. She also provided lots of lovely welcoming bits and pieces. The bed in the main room was very comfy as were the sofa’s. we found the location a great place to discover Gloucester and Bristol which was the aim of our stay. We would definitely return

We loved the covered seating area with a table to relax when we came back in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would recommend the Stables without hesitation.

    Would love to go back, but the experience would be made a little better if there had been a king size bed and the garden was secure from the main road for the dog,twice or 3 times she ventured onto the main road as no gate or secure fence, luckily the road was closed for maintenance but still a through road for other houses and farm vehicles, would of totally spoilt it for us if that had not been so. Maybe just letting people know that it wasn’t a secure garden would be fine. But otherwise a first class accommodation

    Extremely comfortable and clean with some lovely welcome gifts including sparkling wine, scones and jam. Milk in the fridge even treats for the dogs,brilliant. Would not hesitate to recommend. The only minus point was the open aspect onto the minor road outside with two dogs. As it happened the road was closed to through traffic due to bridge repairs and our dogs generally don’t wander too far so not too much of a problem for us but a gate to the road would have been perfect.

  • "The Stables has very good facilities but due to its location you do need your own transport."

    The advertised details state that the main bedroom has a king sized bed, this is incorrect as it is a UK std 4ft 6 inch double, in which case we would not have booked this property in the first place, which would have been a pity as otherwise it meet our needs. It was also disappointing that the owner, who lives next door, did not find time to to visit during our two week stay and help address some minor queries that we had. We did try to meet but had to make telephone contact to ask about towel and bedding change arrangements mid holiday.

  • "The site said there would be WiFi."

    That’s one of the reasons we booked this property because of prepping our day trips. First days we had WiFi but this was unstable and for 9 days we had no WiFi at all. We contact Sykes and on their advice the owner. After several contacts and someone to try to fix it it was still not working. We had to multiple 4G bundles... For the rest the property was fine! And of course we had al lovely holiday cause the location gives you so many possibilities for things to do!!

  • "Thought from brochure there were 2 double bedrooms."

    Found the beds in smaller bedroom had been combined into a single bed of at most 2ft 6ins wide so tallish middle aged daughter banged her head on the wall when she turned over. We realised there was no garden but thought from the picture that there were strips of grass in the front. On arrival we realised these were artificial grass. The only near place for the dog to use was grass along the narrow verge of the road outside the cottage gate. Not ideal.

    In fact the owners have thought of most things. There were some nice touches too such as prosecco, chocolate Easter bunnies and hot cross buns left for us as well as essentials like milk and coffee. The cottage was perfect for a couple plus dog and a 15 months old (the highchair was appreciated too). Only two suggestions for improvement, heavier curtains in the bedrooms to help block out the light and unfortunately the broadband was very patchy which stopped us watching films in the evening (down to the provider I would say).
