  • "Stable Cottage is beautiful, it's the perfect place to stay in Burton Bradstock."

    Our family of four were very comfortable during our stay, the cottage had everything we needed. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and we throughly enjoyed it. During our stay we enjoyed walks around the village and to Hive Beach, along with day trips to Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Bridport and Weymouth. Dinner at The Three Horseshoes was fantastic as always, and the fish and chip van on Thursday night was a bonus.

  • "Beautiful cottage very comfortable everything we needed, have to watch your head ..."

    Beautiful cottage very comfortable everything we needed, have to watch your head in two of the bedrooms, but it’s a cottage and that’s what most cottages are like (character cottage) we would stay here again

    Thank you very much for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay in spite of the low ceilings! Property Owner

  • "This is a great cottage in Burton Bradstock, which is thoughtfully designed and decorated."

    The modern extension is a triumph and the main bedroom is much larger than the photos show, so that there is no problem with sloping roof or low beams. Our only irritation is the request to strip the beds, bag up towels etc on day of departure - it's a busy last morning packing up without this extra chore. This would not put us off returning though!

    Thanks for a lovely feedback I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

  • "A beautiful cottage with good facilities."

    It was very comfortable, and well-maintained. The location was great too - easy to get to, with good parking and a close walk to the Burton Bradstock beach. We definitely will come back again!

  • "Kitchen and lounge areas well up to speed and satisfactory in every way - upstairs only suitable for 2 adults plus children because of sloping ceilings."

    Bathroom shower space again compromised- both showers produced very low results and performance. Very disappointed not to receive Welcome Pack, especially when as we were leaving the next guests pack arrived- she assured us ours had been delivered on Saturday 30/9! It should also be noted that fire extinguishers were 3 years out of warranty- not good in a thatched cottage!

    I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay as much as you would have liked. In response to your feedback, we will: Look to change the shower heads. Add a note to the booking details about the sloping ceilings. My apologies about the welcome pack, I removed it believing it had been left by the previous guests. I have sent a £20 Amazon gift card to you as a small compensation. The fire extinguishers will be renewed asap. Best wishes, Elise Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    The location is amazing and is local to the beach, a great pub (the three horseshoes) and plenty of walks. We stayed with our 2 year old and 2 month old. The master bedroom is big enough to fit a travel cot and my 2 year old slept in a double bed. The door handles are high enough that he couldn’t leave the room which was good as no stair gate. The kitchen was well equipped and we received a lovely welcome pack, but there were no basic items provided such as, olive oil, salt, pepper, dishwasher tablets, or washing machine tablets. We had to keep our 2 year old out when cooking as the Agar gets hot to touch, but this wasn’t a problem and the sun room had plenty of space for him to play with his toys. We really enjoyed our time at the property and the village it’s located in is very quaint. We would definitely return again!

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. My partner and I have only just begun letting Stable Cottage so all feedback is most welcome. I am sorry that there were no basic grocery items provided, we questioned this with Lyme Bay holidays and were advised that since Covid nothing could be left. I have spoken to them again and we have agreed that we can leave some basic grocery items as long as we check the dates. I note your comment about a stair gate and we will look for one that does not have to be permanently fitted. We look forward to you returning. Best wishes Elise and Roger Property Owner
