    A lovely little cosy lodge with everything we needed. We even took 2 little dogs who settled very well and was able to run around the garden securely.

  • "Had a lovely break."

    The accommodation is lovely and spotless. Very nice touches leaving us cakes and Prosecco and milk. The garden was great for the dogs. My daughter and partner stayed in the Holly s barn one bedroom and also agreed how lovely everything was. Rachel the owner is very helpful if you need anything. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Hi. The only one comment I would make."

    When the sun is coming through the glass doors in the kitchen/lounge area the voiles aren't strong enough to keep the sun out. So it becomes hard to sit in there. I though there may be some blinds fixed within the doors. The rest of the accommodation was amazing, so thank you!!!

    Thank you for your feedback, we would like to advise that this is the first time we have had a complaint about the voiles and have in fact had positive compliments from previous guests during the summer advising that they kept the sun out. Property Owner

  • "We had an absolutely lovely stay here."

    The property was super clean and stocked with everything you could need. The garden was great for our dog, who loved to watch the birds and cows from a safe enclosed place. The beds were comfy and the log burner was a real cosy treat. Would definitely recommend!

    The cottage was beautiful and super clean. I had the best nights sleep id had in a long time and swear the bed and pillows are made of actual clouds. We will definitely be back.

  • "Great little place, thanks so much."

    Lovely little extra touch of the bottle of fizz on ice for our arrival. We found a great walk at Downs Banks to take the dog, each day we went a different route and it was brilliant - just a short 10/15 min drive from the property. A small suggestion - we got lucky with the weather and it was very warm. A fan or two would be a great addition to the facilities. As it’s south facing and we get the sun all day, the addition of a parasol outdoors to provide some shade for us but also our four legged friend would be hugely beneficial. Thanks again!

  • "Such a lovely place to stay, we didn’t want to leave and we would definitely go back."

    The accommodation is so tasteful and comfortable, and the hot tub is amazing. As a family we include a 5 and 6 year old, and a larger dog who all also loved the garden. The owners are close by, helpful if needed, but were very respectful of privacy. They knew our dog could bark when seeing another dog so kept the lovely Ted (black lab) away. The local pub is a fun footpath away and it was also easy to travel to lots of places of interest, and stock up at a supermarket. Really can’t recommend enough

  • "We had a lovely time at Saddles, and we would not hesitate to return."

    We didn’t know before we booked that the property is next door to the owners and normally this may have put us off however please don’t let it, they were lovely, very knowledgeable about the local area and where to walk our dogs, we only really saw them when they checked the hot tub, which by the way is one of the best and well kept we’ve used. It is very private and we returned totally relaxed. The interior of the accommodation is very luxurious and the beds are the comfiest we’ve stayed in. Thank you for a wonderful week and as I’ve said we would love to return at some point.

  • "Lovely venue, it gave enough privacy and was rural enough without being too far from everything."

    The hosts (Rachael and Paul) were wonderful and friendly too and were extremely accommodating.

  • "Sadlers is a lovely holiday venue."

    The accommodation is high quality with everything you need and Rachael and Paul are on hand if needed. The area is quiet and tranquil, which suited us well. But there is plenty to do if you are happy to jump in the car. The National Abroretum, Trentham Gardens and Alton Towers are easily accessible and all worth a visit. Definately recommend this lovely hideaway.

  • "The cottage is finished to a very high standard."

    There is everything you would need for your stay. The enclosed garden was brilliant for the dog and the views are lovely. The local village is a short walk away and would highly recommend The Shoulder of Mutton at Fulford. They do amazing meals and all the people in the village are very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend.

  • "If you have dogs and want somewhere to go away look no further."

    Large fully enclosed garden our whippet and greyhound had lots of room to run around in. Gives complete reassurance that you don’t have to worry about letting your dogs out like at some places that isn’t enclosed. The barn is lovely to stay at. You’re roughly about 40-50 yards away from owners property but they are lovey and give you all the privacy you need. Literally everything you will need to stay there has been provided. Beyond amazed at home much stuff was there. We brought too much but always better to be prepared. Slight ongoing issue with WiFi (Sykes hadn’t updated advert correctly for mobile viewing) and the roof is a metal roof so you don’t get any mobile signal once inside. So if you are like us and watch everything through Netflix/Amazon/Disney etc download things first. Once this issues has been sorted(nothing to do with the owners all down to stupid BT) it’s literally the perfect place to stay. Stone is a short drive away and has plenty to offer. A+ place
