We had an excellent week staying in the stables. The owners were very hospitable and the location, accomodation and even weather were first rate. There was lots to do in the area and we hope to return to visit the attractions we missed this time.

Just returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday. Spotless accommodation and well equipped kitchen all within easy reach of attractions. Hot tubs and added bonus and they are well placed that enables them to be secluded from the other cottages. Catered well for a family ranging from 5 months to 75 years old suited each of us

Well appointed cottage with excellent facilities. Great location with fantastic views. Second time in this cottage. First time we did everything. This time nothing, we sat back, had a few drinks and read. Fantastic. Do not miss the hot tub on a clear night. The sky is incredible, I have never seen so many stars. Will be back.
