  • "Incredible little place!"

    We had an amazing few nights stay at the stable. The accommodation is perfect; the location is peaceful and beautiful, perfect for a relaxing break. The hot tub was a lovely luxury and we very much enjoyed spending the evenings between the hot tub and sitting in front of the log burning fire.

  • "Great location for lovely holiday days out, evening in hot tub, and by fire pit, the place could have been cleaner, it was certainly better when we left, the bedding and bed is past its best."

    But otherwise the property is well planned, and generally well presented, you could tell some redecorating had been done.

  • "We had a great week, the cottage was very comfortable and facilities especially the hot tub were greatly appreciated."

    Many places were within easy travelling distance, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Glastonbury, Cheddar and the Avalon Marshes. All in all a great place to stay

  • "Lovely location, quiet and peaceful."

    The previous occupants did not clean the cooker grill which was greasy with fat. The oven could of benefited from a professional clean. The bed linen(duvet in particular) felt old and Staines in places as was the pillow cases. Not up to your perfect standards this time Sykes! At lease we did bring our o n this time. Apart from this, the accommodation was great and we did enjoy the stay.

  • "The place was absolutely amazing, perfect size for a couple with a lovely hot tub and gazebo area in the garden that made for some lovely dinners outside surrounded by sheep, chicken and the two little cats."

    Our only negative feedback would be that we didn’t get any information on arriving as to key collection and the numbers didn’t work and it felt weird entering the property without speaking to anyone. Although we appreciated the privacy it would be a nice to be greeted either on arrival or that day to say hello. The stable door also didn’t lock which meant the property was never secure which was something that really bothered us and would like to see that mended before a return visit but we absolutely intend to return in the long run! Thank you for a lovely stay!

  • "As instructed prior to arrival i rang the owners and left 4 messages on two different numbers for key information no one returned my call."

    We struggled to locate the propeety initially as the stone with ghe lodges name on at the too of the drive could do with painting On arrival no one was there to meet us which isnt a big issue but would have been nice. The location and facilities were really good. However the cleanliness wasnt to the standard i would have expected especially during lockdown. The decor was tired and could have done with being painted especially the kitchen ceiling where there had been a leak and the bathroom were paint was flaking off the walls. There was no brush , mop or hoover meaning the floor couldn't be cleaned throughout our stay and the stable door in fhe kitchen wasnt locked and had no key to enable us to lock it which meaning we coukdbt secure the property. I did knock on the owners door a couple of times but got no reply. This property with a few finishing touches could have been perfect without too much of an outlay for the owners.

  • "Being off grid, hidden away and in such a secluded spot was perfect for us."

    The hot tub was awesome. Who cares how cold it is when the tub's 40 degrees!!!! The wood burner kicked out some serious heat ensuring the cottage was toasty warm. We were nice and close to Ross on Wye and the owner was kind enough to recommend a few pubs for us. We will definitely consider another trip.

  • "The place is pretty tricky to find, the writing on the stone that has its name on is rather faded & could do with a lick of paint."

    Hot Tub under the stars is the highlight, wood burner is fantastic, bed is comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped, selection of DVD's are available to watch, it's a really nice place to stay. There were strange comings & goings in the middle of the night, cars & vans, 2am 4am, for such a remote site there's a fair bit of traffic running past/alongside/outside it. We didn't meet the owners, we did try knocking on the door (maybe we tried the wrong door) there were plenty of lights on, but we didn't see them. The Wi-Fi password given on the information sheets didn't work, so be prepared to be completely shut off! In no way do the negatives outweigh the positives, they are more niggles than annoyances. It would have been nice to meet the owners. I would book there again.

    Everything you needed supplied in the cottage. Did not see anyone else for our whole stay. We did actually try and speak with the owners at one stage but were not able to contact them. Apart from that a faultless stay. Very nice location, we visited the butterfly farm nearby which was lovely.

  • "The Stable is an amazing place for a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life."

    Louisa was very welcoming and gave us some great recommendations of places to visit and eat. The area of the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean are on the doorstep (with a car) and a wonderful area to explore, then after a day of walking,cycling or canoeing the hot tub is there to relax in and watch the sun set,perfect! The cottage has everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Highly recommended.

  • "We spent our Honey Moon at the Stable and we couldn't of been more pleased with it."

    We found it close to lots of good town centres, attractions and places to explore which we did each morning, then we spent the afternoons in the hot tub and the evenings around the fire pit with the BBQ going. The location is perfect, you can't get much more perfect if you want peace and quiet and time to relax. The Hosts completely left us alone but were always close by if we needed anything. Also I have to say that we didn't find the midges a problem at all, weather that was down to the time of year or extra measures I have no idea. We had never done a holiday like this before but we would love to do it again, I'd book the Stable again in a heartbeat!

    The Hot Tub and BBQ area is great for chilling out at anytime of day. It is also a great base for a holiday as there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area. The owners where very welcoming and unless we asked for anything they left us to enjoy our time alone in this idyllic location. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "The hot tub could only be used at certain times due to the swarming flies because of the weeds (wild flowers) around it."

    It was difficult to get in and out of the hot tub due to it being put in the wrong way around. The inner step and the narrow part was at the back with no way to get to it this meant you were getting into the hot tub over the controls which was the widest part. Also the drainage in the shower was awful you had to be very aware of the shower tray becoming too full and water going out over. Hence more towels needed to be used on the floor.

  • "The Stable was perfect for our holiday and is set in a beautiful, quiet valley which feels like you have the surrounding hills and woods to yourself."

    The owners live just opposite and met us shortly after our arrival to greet us and see if we needed anything. The Stable is modern and open plan inside and had everything we needed. We used the hot tub every day - it's set up on the raised garden area (up some steps at the back of the house) along with a seating area and firepit/BBQ. We enjoyed sitting in there in the evening, listening to the birds and watching the lambs running about the field next to the Stable. Whilst we were there we visited Ross-on-wye, the Sculpture Trail, walked up May Hill for some amazing views and had dinner at some fantastic pubs (we recommend the Loughpool Inn and the Moody Cow). Loved it all!
