    Good location for Bath and walkable to village shop and pub. No problem parking 4 cars and easy enough to manoeuvre them around as needed.

    The trouble is that once you find one thing wrong other things seem to appear! Not as clean as it should be and some of the furnishings are a little shabby -stained settee and rug, some cloudy glasswear [best to remove it], old mismatched table mats, dead plants in pots, dirty garden seating, broken towel rail, dusty bedroom, light bulbs not working, ants in the sugar, grimy windows, broken coathangers, clothes moths, - all together certainly not 4Star. The upper bedrooms are really minimal. And the ubiquitous welcome pack although not advertised was a little derisory in the form of a small packet of Bath Olivers - best not have bothered! Also steep hill to the shop and pub. The building is wonderful but really let down by its care and management. Sorry!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were disappointed with the review. We thank the reviewer for their comments. It is helpful to hear of issues of concern from guests at the Stables. We hope that all who come will enjoy the property and their stay. However we would note that when we met these guests shortly after their arrival, they did express their pleasure with the property and did not mention these concerns. Nor did they raise any of these issues with us either in person or by telephone during their stay although we live quite close by. We might have had a chance to put right some of the issues. The first we heard of these concerns was when we saw them on the website after they had left. Whilst the property will always be some distance up a steep hill from the shops and the pub and the upstairs bedrooms will always be on the small side, we now hope and believe that we have addressed the other issues (furnishings, table mats, glasses, garden furniture, lights and dust) raised by these guests. We hope that future guests will enjoy their stays.

    Lovely house and great setting for access to Bath and surroundings - really enjoyed the stay. A bit more attention to detail on cleanliness and upkeep (about 10 missing light bulbs and brackets falling off walls) would make this a 10 all round.

    Excellent Cottage. Had a fantastic break. Plenty of room for 6 adults. The only problem was the ants. The owners were aware of the problem but we felt they could have done more about it. They had ant boxes dotted about but they were several years out of date. The problem does warrant the owners getting a pest control team in to investigate. It was a shame as that is the only problem with this beautiful home.

    Gorgeous house - interesting, quiet, light, well furnished, spacious. Great immediate locality (walks in the woods, views), and convenient to take bus into Bath (village 2 minutes by car, 10 minutes on foot).

    The Stables is a lovely holiday cottage. It was warm and cozy, we didn't put the log fire on, although we had wanted to because the property was so warm. The finishes of the property were to a very high standard and the equipment in the kitchen met all our self catering needs for five adults and a child. We had some trouble finding the lane to The Stables, and ended up driving up to the owners property by mistake. Once we got to The Stables, the drive down to the parking area is very steep and we ended up reversing down so we didn't have to reverse back up and would suggest this. We had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend The Stables. It is a great location to visit Bath and beyond, but found that we had to go part way into Bath for food shopping.

    Try not to arrive in the dark! That said, once we located the house we were thrilled. Grandparents, Couple and two teenagers spent a lovely weekend. Do some research on Aga cooking in advance if self catering is part of your plan. Fat Fryer chip shop highly recommended.

    What a great house! Lots of room while still wonderfully cosy! The aga certainly helped with that. The garden was secluded and really safe with small children! The owners so helpful! We would love to come n stay again!!
