  • "What an absolute gem of a cottage."

    It was clean, warm, perfectly equipped and the owners had even taken the time to decorate it for the festive period!! We will definitely be back, we didn’t want to leave!!

  • "We absolutely loved our stay, so did the dogs!"

    We had everything we needed, the hot tub was easy to use. The cottage was very clean and the free use of the EV charger was fantastic. We will definitely be visiting again. Only negative points we have, but it's just our personal preference. The bathroom towel are a bit small, the kitchen knives are blunt from the glass chopping boards. Plastic or wooden would be better (my partner is a chef).

    .. home from home all facilities you need and more including a hot tub and all with beautiful countryside right outside the front door. Easy to reach Cotswold tourist spots with chipping norton only 4 miles away...... dogs also had a great time and loved the garden .... welcome pack on arrival which is a really nice touch ... I will definitely be coming back

  • "The Stables was immaculately clean and very well equipped."

    Although dogs are welcome, there was no doggy smell at all, I am pleased to say. We appreciated some thoughtful touches, such as a wall socket with USB charging sockets. The TV has recently benefited from the addition of a Humax Freesat box, giving a wide range of stations. The area is very quiet; one reviewer mentioned occasional road noise but although the Stables is the nearest of the three to the road, I think one would need to be very sensitive to noise to be at all bothered by the road. The area really is very quiet. There are many walks; the property has a number of guide books which we used. The property is a very short drive from Great Tew which has an excellent pub; we ate there on three evenings. I was pleased that the owners were prepared to accommodate my road bike which sat half in the ground floor toilet and half in the hallway. Having somewhere secure for my bike is very important to me. We will return to this property at some stage. I seldom leave reviews because few properties reach the high standards promised; the Stables is an exception.

  • "Our break away was fabulous - the stables was everything we needed."

    Dog friendly it had all we needed in the kitchen so comfortable, loved the fact it had private parking close to the cottages .The owners Julie and Jo have done a fabulous job in renovating this building. We loved the extra touches our welcome gifts even had treats for our woofers and also loved the connection with horses as it was called the stables - brilliant - I will be back for another visit next year

  • "The stables was clean and met our expectations."

    Thewine and dog treats were well received and a nice touch.It was reassuring that despite the fact the owners lived opposite the accommodation ,not once did they feel it necessary to come and visit us,leaving us to get on with our much needed rest.Some owners declare that the gardens are safe and secure,very often I find this not to be the case when you have medium sized dogs who want to jump over or go through the fences.In the case of the stables I can honestly say it was the most secure of gardens and two English pointers were left very disappointed that they could not reenact the great escape.

  • "The Stables is a lovely little cottage."

    It’s very well equipped and had everything we needed. It looks like it has been newly renovated. The stair gate is a great idea for the dogs, we use one at home, and the garden is safe and secure. If I could say one improvement it would be to supply fans in the bedrooms. They get a bit too hot being up in the roof and even open windows didn’t help.

    There was nothing missing from the property, good cutlery, cooking pots and pans, oven proof dishes, sharp knives, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dish washer, microwave, fan assisted oven, everything! Even a tea pot! The floor is tiled which is brilliant when you're bringing your dog's. There is also a downstairs loo. Comfy leather recliner sofa and chair, big TV with free view and a DVD player. Also there is WiFi for the people that don't know how to get away from it all on holiday. Under the stairs are the clothes horse/ airer, mop, bucket, and hoover. On the stairs there's a child gate. Upstairs is the double room and the twin and a shower room with loo. Brilliant sky light in the shower room, should you have a call of nature during the night, you can sky gaze too. Couldn't ask for more, parking, garden for the dog's, walks on the doorstep, clean comfortable property, excellent owner's!

  • "A very nice cottage ,very clean very well presented and very well equipped."

    The unfortunate thing was the lack of any views over the surrounding countryside. Windows on the upper level were set at floor level so you needed to sit/lie on the floor to see out of the windows. on the ground floor the views through the windows were either the adjacent farmhouse building or the bin store. There was only one key and from my point of view a second key would be advantageous..

  • "We had a super week at the Stables."

    It was the perfect location for exploring Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties, and we made lots of day trips (Blenheim Palace, Stratford upon Avon, Stow on the Wold, Warwick, Biscester Village, etc). The cottage itself is one of three converted from an enormous old farm barn - and the conversion was has been done brilliantly so that the old character was still there yet the facilities and layout are everything you’d expect from a modern build. We were provided with a generous welcome pack and had access to great local shops in Chipping Norton. The owners suggested days out and walking routes nearby which we enjoyed despite the fierce heat. We also had several delicious meals in the local pub (The Falkland Arms). Thoroughly recommended.
