  • "What a smart, beautiful and homely cottage!"

    We were blown away with the standard of Old stable cottage. Really well equipped and spacious with really comfortable beds. Lisle & Lloyd were friendly and welcoming and they had left us a yummy lemon drizzle cake and Prosecco! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that great so only used the swimming pool & jacuzzi once but it was great fun! Lisle & Lloyd had obviously gone to massive efforts with the decorations and appearance inside the cottage as it was so well presented inside & outside. Thank you again for a lovely week.

  • "The stay exceeded our expectations- it is so spacious and well equipped."

    The grounds are beautiful and the swimming pool was an added bonus. We made camp fires in the woods, had bbqs in the garden, went for strolls in the meadow- brilliant to get outdoors. The cottage itself is much bigger than expected and so welcoming. Only draw back is that we were expecting one king sized bed - this would make a real difference to sleep quality for our tall family member. This is only a small comment though definitely 10/10 accommodation. Thanks for having us.

  • "The cottage was lovely, well equipped, a beautiful rural location."

    The kids loved the pool and sauna set up(although pool was very chilly). The owners were friendly, helpful and obliging. My only criticism is that you advertise the cottage as having one King size bed which it doesn't, the are all doubles. We would never usually book somewhere that doesn't have at least a queen size bed as my husband and I do not really fit in a double. So we didn't sleep brilliantly.

  • "When I booked this holiday accommodation it was on the understanding it offered a king-size and 2 doubles."

    There was no king-size...all rooms were doubles. My husband is 6'4" tall and he could not fit lengthwise comfortably in the bed. (all beds had a frame at the bottom so feet could not overhang!) I do not understand how this can have happened....does it mean I have to check every booking with you in future to make sure that a king-size room actually has a king-size bed in it?? If you look back at my choices over the years, you will see there is always one king-size room required....2 if we're accompanied by my daughter and son-in-law for the same reason. Please can you change the information on your website so no-one else is affected by this.

  • "Lisle and Lloyd were very warm and welcoming and clearly working hard to create a relaxing and idyllic place for their guests."

    The cottage was spacious and relaxing with a lovely book stock for all ages. The grounds were peaceful and the children loved exploring the wooded area and stream. Due to COVID, Lisle and Lloyd has gone the extra mile with opening the pool facilities by creating a rota to enable them to clean between each groups visit. It was very welcomed and the children said it made the holiday “the best ever!”
