  • "Great accommodation for a family get together, lovely location with plenty to do near by."

    Loved the big dinning room, the whole family could sit together and enjoy a meal prepared in the BBQ hut. Would highly recommend this accommodation to any families looking to have a get together. The owners Chris and June were more than helpful and only a phone call away if any issue were to arise.

  • "The whole place was gorgeous, i would highly recommend it to those seeking a relaxing get away."

    I would personally go back as i felt 3 nights was not enough to take in the place, me and my friends are already considering coming back for summer.

  • "Stonegables was a wonderful venue for our get together with a large group of friends and children from ages 3 to 10."

    June and Chris were excellent hosts and very helpful. The house was very spacious, warm and comfortable and very well equipped. There were lots of bedrooms and bathrooms which gave us lots of flexibility. The children absolutely loved the huge garden and spent lots of time out there enjoying the swings, slides, basketball hoop and especially the football pitch! The BBQ hut was a big hit with all of us and kept us cosy on a cold evening. We would certainly recommend this property for large family groups.

  • "The cottage was the ideal place to celebrate my 21st birthday with my close friends."

    The cottage was spacious and accommodated 11 of us very comfortably. We were made to feel very welcome by June and Chris when we arrived and instructions on the use of heating etc were made very clear. We would all recommend Stonegables to make great memories whilst being assured your stay will be comfortable and meet your expectations! 10/10!

  • "Fantastic for a family get together, house catered for all ages."

    Kids enjoyed the huge garden and adults enjoyed the bar! The dynamics of the house worked extremely well with central kitchen, big dining room table, lounge and separate bar area and also good sized bedrooms and bathrooms.

  • "Stonegables was an excellent choice for our annual family holiday."

    Its a very warm, relaxing, well-appointed home that feels nicely lived in and not too precious. The house and gardens are spacious, full of interesting nooks and crannies and there always seems to be an area that is sheltered and in the sun. We particularly enjoyed the wee barbecue house and the hot tub - which was well used! Although there were one or two issues with the plumbing at the beginning, our hosts, Chris and June, went out of their way to get them sorted, so there was never any real inconvenience. Chris and June were very friendly and helpful throughout. The location is very convenient with local amenities nearby and very much in the center of many interesting things to do and see. As it worked so well for us, we will certainly be considering Stonegables for another family get together.
