    Wonderfully relaxing - wanted to stay! Beautiful quiet location but in easy reach of main roads should you wish to explore the area. Large spacious cottage with plenty of room for everyone to either be together or do their own thing without feeling on top of one another.

    Without any doubt, this was the best cottage that we have ever found and stayed in. The stables are extremely well equipped with everything that you could want and beautifully decorated. The lady who owns the house has perfect taste with exactly the right ornament, picture or feature exactly where it should be, so that staying there is such a pleasant experience. The bed that we slept in, was very comfortable and my wife's sister, who also stayed with us, said how comfortable the other double bed was as well. Each bedroom has a colour co-ordinated theme and again lovely decor. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything that we could want, with lots of space for cooking and eating in a farmhouse type environment. The sitting room was again very comfortable, super sofas and lovely decor. Saying there was such a relaxing experience; so quiet and peaceful that the world seemed a million miles away. The hosts were so helpful and friendly and dropped in a couple of times to make sure that everything was just as we wanted it. I cannot recommend this cottage enough and we would certainly stay there again if we were down in that part of the country. Two must see attractions are the Haynes International Motor Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum which are less than fifteen minutes away. Yeovil has some good shopping opportunities and Wells is certainly worth a visit. This is ten out of ten for everything and you could not find better anywhere. Thank you for such a pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable stay.

    Lovely place to stay very quiet and really comfortable. The kitchen is so well equipped it has rolling pins and everything you could ever need. The beds and pillows are really comfortable and huge!

    Second visit to this lovely cottage. The photos don't do it justice! We will certainly be returning. The owners are very friendly helpful and are there if needed but not intrusive. Really safe and secure garden for the dog. Lounge furniture extremely comfortable, which can be rare in most holiday rentals. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to visit Somerset or Dorset.

    This was perfect for our needs - 3 couples having a weekend reunion. En suite bedrooms much appreciated. Much larger than we thought and very well equipped.

    We enjoy staying at The Old Stables beacause you can walk the dogs around the farm and visit many places within a 45 minute drive.

    The Old Stables was a lovely place. It could have been a bit cleaner. No mattress or pillow protectors which was disappointing. There was a stain under mat (wee because it smelt in the room) in one of the bedrooms which we did not know about until the last day when hovered up. There was a problem with ants in kitchen and did not expect to keep putting ant powder down. Otherwise a lovely place and had a lovely holiday.
