  • "Our hosts Phil and Fran are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful, also Fran baked a scrumptious coffee and walnut cake for us on arrival (which made our stay even more delightful)."

    The stable cottage is a lovely place, very cosy and peaceful. The garden was just the right size for us and the views from there where very picturesque. The surrounding area is also very beautiful. Every few hours you will hear the steam train go through. We highly recommend The Stable Cottage to anyone wishing to get away for a nice relaxing break.

  • "Ideal cottage and garden."

    Owner left us lovely coffee and walnut cake. Wild deer appeared in the next field. The only disappointment was that the local pub closed down last year and we had to drive a few miles for other pubs that offered meals. West Somerset steam train from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead went through stunning countryside. The Quantocks and Exmoor is glorious and the weather was perfect. Thankyou

  • "The property was cold and unwelcoming when we got there."

    The electric fire in the main room wasn't working properly, they did bring a couple of heaters around when we mentioned it. The handle on the freezer compartment in the fridge was broken so we couldn't open it. I did have to throw a couple of things away. The owners were friendly and the area was very quiet. We wouldn't go back to the property though.

  • "Stable Cottage is a separate part of the owners property."

    They are welcoming and helpful if needed but not intrusive. They had provided a scrumptious coffee and walnut cake together with flowers which lasted the week. The cottage was clean and well appointed and has a small garden. Note the freezer is part of the fridge. The countryside is beautiful and has many local walks. We strongly recommend this Cottage and area.

    The cottage was comfy and in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The owners, Fran and Phil, were friendly and attentive. The bonus of one of Fran's homemade cakes was very much appreciated. We will be returning.

    Was great base for two of us with a small dog with many walks from the doorstep including to the local, Blue Ball Inn. The small enclosed garden was great to let the dog out for a quick break between walks. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly.

  • "WE would suggest that the TV be exchanged for a larger screen model."

    The glass in the door leading to the garden needs to be replaced. Whilst due to the poor weather we did not sit outside it would be useful to have a parasol available.

    Thanks for your comment. The property has recently been renovated, and we are pleased to say that the TV has been upgraded and the French windows leading to the garden have been replaced. A parasol is available on request. Property Owner

    We visited with our 1 year old and it was perfect for him. He loved to explore the garden and spot the horses in the distance. Pub is less than a 10 minute walk and there are numerous places to visit close by and some great walks right on your doorstep.
