  • "Lovely property we had a lovely time."

    It’s set in a wonderful setting. At first we were dubious as there were many bad reviews about the road, but this did not affect the stay nor was it loud at all. My little girl really enjoyed the property. The only thing I would recommend is considering blocking the decking off so it goes all the way around the property at the front. The rationale for this is due to being able to take dogs and being close to reception the dogs can go wondering off. Then it would stop the dog having to stay inside the property when in the hot tub or being tied up to the fence so he doesn’t go wondering off as he’s only young. All in all a lovely property well kept and in a lovely setting we’ll be back. The property had everything we needed for a short stay. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay and the Lodges are in a lovely setting and close to all amenities."

    We cannot comment on the Stablings cottage itself as there was a problem with the cottage but the owners quickly offered us an alternative lodge. The Hollies, a bit smaller than our original booking but as our party was smaller than expected this was fine. Hollies was a lovely little lodge and had everything you needed for our stay. Surrounding area had lovely places to take our dog with a couple of Pubs that welcomed them too, Nags Head, which is 20min walk along canal and The Lion @ Berriew , short drive, both friendly and lovely food.

  • "We have a wonderful few days at the stablings."

    The accommodation was exactly as described. My only suggestion to make it perfect would be to make the decking area enclosed as the property is dog friendly.

  • "A charming cottage in beautiful Powys."

    The property provided us with the perfect way to spend a New Year's break, and what better way to see in the new year than use of the amazing hot tub, complete with stunning views (and star-lit skies)! The property itself was conveniently laid out with more than enough room in the living room and kitchen/diner to comfortably fit three adults (the size of our party). The cottage was clean and warmed on arrival, with clear instructions on location and key arrangements prior to the trip. We may good use of the local walking routes and would particularly recommend excursions to Newtown and Montgomery. One point which I am sure will be addressed by the owner, but would have been good to know prior to arrival, was that the oven did not work. This meant adapting meals that had been planned around the use of an oven, but this setback is very much overshadowed by the numerous positives associated with the property. Thank you for having us!

  • "Beautiful cottage in a quiet surrounding, kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need."

    We took the dog with us and he loved sitting outside on the decking with us everyday. We walked down the canal to to local pub “the nags head” and the food was brilliant, we went back here twice. The hot tub was cleaned daily and even when we discovered a wasps nest in the lawn the handyman came instantly to sort out the problem. Lovely little cottage with great views, would 100% return.

  • "Having just spent a week in a superb cottage on Anglesey this property had a lot to live up to."

    A decent location and as we did not know the area there were opportunities to explore the canal by bike and nearby villages. We were really impressed by the quality of food in every pub and restaurant we went to, especially the Nags Head Inn. The staff were always friendly and accommodating with or without our dog. The property itself was compact, clean and comfortable. The hot tub was amazing and checked everyday by a very attentive groundsman. There were a couple of anomolies. An iron board without an iron (we wouldn't have used it anyway) and no washing machine but a clothes line. Otherwise a good property for a small family.

  • "The Stablings is not suitable for a dog as the outside space is not enclosed."

    Suggest more than 1 tea towel is provided for a week long holiday. Accommodation was full of flies. Could have been because of the hot weather but spoiled the holiday for us. Location of cottage is good. Lovely area. Staff friendly and helpful.

  • "The Stablings has been a lovely stay, the reception staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble."

    The accommodation had everything you needed for your stay. The surrounding area was just beautiful and grounds were so well kept. Loved all the animals, ducks, geese, swans birds etc Yes past reviews have said about the decking not being enclosed for their dogs. They are actually going to do something about this in the future. We were ok as we have quite a well behaved dog. He just loved all the walks on the door step. Hot tub was checked daily and lovely especially at night when looking at the stars. The only negative is we would prefer a Kings size bed but that is just our preference. If you want a chilled, peaceful holiday I would highly recommend.

  • "Overall we had a really good week away."

    Staff at reception was really polite when checking in. The cottage is right next to reception however it is still very private and we were not disturbed at all. The views are lovely, looking over the lake and the cabins in the wooded area. It is very near to the main road but this did not bother us at all and rarely heard the hum of the traffic going past. We had amazing weather so had a bbq most meals - we used the oven once to cook a pizza and well it wasn't the best. It took about an hour overall to cook it, it seems the door doesn't seal properly. The canal walk is lovely, a little overgrown but nothing to shout about, the Nags Head is a lovely pub a mile down the canal, and did amazing food. We did go to the golf club house once for dinner, but didn't feel like we fitted in as we aren't golfers and we were being looked at as being outsiders. The garden isn't secure so if you have a dog that likes to roam it isn't the best, luckily our boy is older and just settled on the decking or the grass area. If you like to chill with films then I advise you take dvds as its just normal TV and a dvd player, the wifi hardly connected so don't rely on a laptop for netflix or other streaming. We popped to tesco and bought a few dvds to see us through the week. The hot tub was amazing, nice and clean and warm. It was maintained well everyday. As I said Overall we had a really lovely week here at stablings cottage

  • "We loved the location of the cottage, which was spacious and had great views over the canal and gardens."

    Beds were comfortable and the shower good once we had worked out how to use it! The local pub does great food as well. Lovely walks in the nearby woods too. There is a busy main road about 250 metres away, mentioned as some other reviewers have complained about. We could hear the traffic if the windows were open (although not loud) and it didn't particularly bother us. However, it did feel that things were stinted on in some areas, e.g. there were only 2 dishwasher tablets for the whole week and we had to ask for more. Plus there was no salt or rinse aid to fill the machine with as it was completely empty. Again I had to ask for this. Also one tea towel meant we had to buy more to use. No salt or pepper facilities. No soap in the bathroom. Small things like that. The main issue was the wifi. Trying to use this was a joke. One minute the general network was available, although it took a while to connect then suddenly it had not only stopped but disappeared off the network list, leaving on the staff network showing. The staff rebooted it several times and eventually someone came out to see to it, after which it improved slightly but it was still not great.

  • "The reception staff were welcoming and helpful."

    The cottage was in a good position with great views and lovely walks for the dog. It would have been better to have a dog proof area rather than have him tied up all the time when outside. Strange fan gas oven which didn’t really reach the required temperature and a very strange tin opener which didn’t work at all so I had to use the strong kitchen scissors with which I manage to cut a hole in the tin. The bed was very saggy. The hot tub was wonderful and well maintained. The nearby Nags Head was very good for food and dog friendly.

    Had everything we needed very clean on arrival, with the fire on it was a cold wet day when we arrived. The grounds were stunning and we enjoyed walking our little dog around them and along the canal. Cottage is near the reception but we were never disturbed, still felt private. After our days out walking it was relaxing to enjoy the hot tub in the evening. Would highly recommend this cottage. Supermarket only a short drive away in Newtown
