    This is a wonderful place to stay. It's quiet and relaxing in the middle of nowhere practically. Little village about 10 minutes away. You definitely need a car to get about as very remote. But it's a wonderful cottage, clean with everything you need there. The old stables has wonderful views out over fields. A lovely enclosed garden completely dog safe with a hot tub that has lights all around it come night time. We were lucky enough to be able to use the swimming pool as the barn was free too. We will be back as really is a beautiful place! Has made us want to move now too!!

    The Old Stables is a lovely cottage in a very rural setting. It was well equipped and exceptionally clean and tidy and more spacious than the photos lead us to believe. The owners could not have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome. The 'welcome basket' was a very generous gesture and much appreciated. We would certainly consider returning in the not too distant future. It was a very relaxing week all round.
