    Our host (Sandra) was very welcoming and provided lots of local information to enable us to make the most of Roos and the wider local area. Our small dog loved the enclosed garden and the nearby walks to the coast. Both local pubs, the Butcher and village shop were very handy and also friendly.

  • "The Stables is an outstanding property - clean as a whistle, well-appointed & thoughtfully equipped."

    The owner's instructions and carefully detailed notes made arrival easy. Extremely comfortable, it is a brilliant conversion the owners have completed. Walking to the coast is a good hike, the bakery/butcher is excellent, the Post-Office/Shop has all the essentials...and ideal parking. A perfect spot for 1-2 couples, or solo traveller like me.

  • "Great conversion of old stables."

    Very clean and comfortable with everything you could need on a break. Beds very comfortable and rooms of a good size. It would of been good to know that the stables are situated literally in the middle of the owners garden with the room under bedroom 1 being the owners potting "shed" with the owners dogs almost under the bedroom window. I guess this explains previous barking dogs comments. Lovely pub just across the road and shop within minutes walk. Overall a nice comfortable stay.

  • "Enjoyed the ambience of the house and garden, comfy bed, comfy seating (but took a bit of getting out of."

    .. we ended our stay much fitter!!) Loved the decor, books, local history info/books, bedding, comfy pillows, quirky furniture, good range of crockery, cutlery, and thevwelcome goodies were super As older folk we found the sink and worktop area rather high and the bathroom sink unit rather low. Felt the kitchen pan situation cd be reviewed as 3 + stewpan size is usually ok for size of the accommodation...the wok we used a lot ......loadsa colanders but cd have done with a 1pint size jug or measuring jug...... Overriding comment wd be ' take a bit more care to keep the facility cleaner/'bottomed' ahead of new hirers arriving'

    Hello Mrs Sheerer - we were very happy to have you stay at the Stables - and very much value your feedback. We have replaced the stew pan and will make sure we add a measuring jug - we did have one but things occasionally get broken and we are not always told about this between lettings. Thankyou so much for staying with us, and we will share your feedback with our staff. We hope that you are well and look forward to having you stay with us again, Best wishes, Gerard Baker Property Owner

  • "We have a very much needed stay."

    Property was as listed. Beds very comfortable. I always worry the the garden isn't secure, as I have an expert escape artist in my dog. Garden very secure! Kitchen was well equipped, would have been nice to have microwave in kitchen, but this is a personal preference. Comfort rating was only 1 mark down. This is because the settees are quite low, and were a bit difficult to get up from due to dodgy hips and knees. Again a preference for us. Settes were comfy to sit on.

    Dear Elizabeth - many thanks indeed for your feedback. Lovely to hear from you. We really value feedback and respond to our visitors responses to improve our service. Hoping you will come back soon - best wishes, Gerard and Sandra Property Owner

    . Cobwebs everywhere. Kitchen area and pots and pans filthy ( flies or spiders could have been all over the pots as they aren’t in a cupboard, no cups only mugs, sink waste trap was vile, cooker was disgusting, the grease made our eyes sting when it was hot. Everything was sticky and greasy. The washing up bowl was disgusting, the sink area was filthy and the rubber tap hoses were black inside, plumbing was noisy when hot water was running. The tv was tiny, dvd’s but no player downstairs, log burner was filthy (couldn’t even see the fl ames due to the doors being sooty) Curtains were filthy Microwave was rusty, washing machine was dirty and utility room smelled of must. Bathroom was filthy (check the shower screen where it opens it is disgusting) Floor Tiles missing under stairs Bedroom furniture dirty and hairs in drawers. (didn’t even unpack our case) When we opened the velux window loads of bits dropped on the bed. ‘Blinds’ pinned up with cork board pins. Woken up every morning to dogs barking. Garden not secure (the gate needs wire mesh to the top) the garden was unsuitable for dogs if you like them to be clean. Our dog had to have her feet washed all the time she was here due to the mud everywhere. A totally unpleasant stay from the minute we arrived. Left early as we had had enough!!!

  • "We had the most wonderful stay at the stables."

    Everything we could possibly needs plus more, the bed was so comfy , the power shower great, and the abundance of towels (even towels for the beach etc) was more than expected. The attention to detail was superb, fresh ground coffee, a cafetière, fridge and freezer both full size! The bonus of a little mezzanine level which became the kids sofa area was great. The dappled shady garden was wonderful as it was very warm when we were there. Our kids loved to feed the birds every morning. We mainly used the cottage as a base as we were visiting family whilst we stayed, but it was so perfect we spent a few days just relaxing at the cottage and reading our books. The hosts were perfect, and lefts notes on everything we needed. Was so peaceful. We took our dog for a long walk most days through the fields at the back towards Tunstall beach which was a perfect way to start the morning. We will certainly be coming back!

The furnishings are gorgeous, colour scheme perfect for the country cottage look. The separate mezzanine lounge area was well equipped for our teenage daughter so she had her private space but still felt part of ours. The log fire was ready to be lit, which was great as we arrived late in the evening. Part way through we arrived back from a day trip to find some freshly picked apples and homemade pressed apple juice (complimentary) a lovely touch. The location was wonderful for visiting the local sites Flamborough Head and various Nature reserves. Our dog was very comfortable too. Garden full of beautiful Autumnal flowers and foliage and birds. Exceptionally quiet too in a pretty village with store and two pubs. Beauty salon on hand for a pamper if you felt the need - reasonable prices here too. A gem of a place and the owners should feel encouraged that they will no doubt received repeat bookings. We will certainly book again on our next trip up to visit relatives who live in the area. Many thanks The Roberts Family
