  • "We had an amazing few days away for New Year!"

    The stables was a perfect place to stay. A proper retreat away from hussle of modern life. The stables was well equipped, cosy and the hot tub was a bonus. Highly recommended!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The house was well equipped and spacious, the beds were comfy, there was ample secure parking right by the front door and it was peaceful at night. There are many attractions within a short drive and there is a excellent supermarket in the nearby village. Our hosts were very welcoming, and we appreciated the home baking, flowers, milk, wine and beer.
