    They were thrilled with the cottage and its facilities. The bedroom was spacious and well furnished, the walk in shower was perfect as she has mobility issues and the living area was very comfortable for them with a very well equipped kitchen. Great location with lots of amenities close by, would highly recommend!

    Not only is there everything you need in the apartment, but whatever your extra needs may be, Annette and Roy cannot be more helpful....the best hosts ! I wouldn't hesitate in returning or recommending to anyone who seeks a comfortable and restful retreat. 5 nights in early September 2023 and the most glorious weather. Overall, our break couldn't have been any better.

  • "-Does not state property is the back of a garden centre - Patio not closed off between each property or scure at all not suitable for dogs (Panels also missing) -Garden centre visitors can on look and park outside."

    No privacy - Grass area not fenced off and garden centre visitors can access. -Although dog friendly be aware that you are not allowed to leave your dog alone. ( stated in the T&Cs indicated after the first night stay) however it is impossible to take a dog with you everywhere. -A dog should be allowed to be left for a reasonable amount of time within socialable hours. Any dog will bark at passers-by. Would have thought if it was a major issues the dog was left and causing so much hassle to have received a call or message to return to the property immediately. -Would not recommend for those under 65 and dog owners

    It had everything we needed to make our stay pleasant. The lounge was comfortable and warm. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed.

We are looking forward to coming back again, and have already booked for the late summer!

    .the photos and descriptions are very accurate. the cottage is immaculately clean and well stocked with everything you need. we would not return only for 2 reasons. 1 was no WiFi and the other us that the shared patio really is very shared and as peoplelike to eat outside if the weather permits, you are practically eating at the table next to your neighbours. if you don’t mind being so close to the holiday house next to you then this is a lovely holiday house, and especially if you have or like dogs.

    We were made to feel very welcome and that included the dog, she enjoys the freedom of staying here. The roadworks on a roundabout close by necessitated a short detour for some destinations but nothing too drastic and could not be heard from the cottage even as they worked through the night. The downside for us was the weather, it rained most days but no one can control that, as yet and we did have somewhere warm to come back to.

    .. Unfortunately we had to come home on the 3rd couldn't cope with accommodation any longer... The place was spotless and well equipped but not for the elderly or disabled like the property information led us to believe … Bedroom beautiful furnished with a King size bed … Bathroom lovely big walk in shower but no grab rail or Bath mat to step out onto and it was a wooden floor so very slippy … The lounge had a sofa and two chairs which were fine if you were young but we could not get up out of them they were so low and the sofa so soft … My husband had cancer surgery and follow up treatment so we thought this would be ideal for him … we resorted to sitting on hard kitchen type chairs to watch the tele not comfortable at all... Then to top it all we arrived Friday the 30th August and on Saturday morning 31st August the road had closed for 7 weeks … no diversion signs we had to keep going well out of our way to get anywhere we were not informed about this … I am not knocking The Old Stables it was spotless and well equipped like I previously said but needs some attention to make it more ideal for the elderly and disabled we paid out £436 pound for 3 days not happy we feel we were mis informed
