The Stables was exactly as portrayed, it had everything you need for a holiday, also useful to have cleaning products, dishwasher tablets, bin bags and a lovely welcome pack, (milk,bread,butter,preserves,biscuits etc) . It was very clean and quite and the courtyard is a real sun trap. Ideal location, just off the A12, to get to the coast and tourist attractions. The hosts live on site but aren’t intrusive, they are helpful and informative and there if you need anything. Would definitely stay at the Stables again.

Mrs S,

It was a last minute booking so i was a little sceptical but I shouldn’t have been, the stables was perfect for our needs as we are a family of 4, i would recommend to all, its well equipped and has a nice feel about it. We throughly enjoyed our stay.

Mr B,

Excellent very well equipped property, very friendly hosts. Well positioned for exploring the area. We will be back!

Mr D,

This was an amazing property. We rent often in the area and this is a favourite

Mrs M,

The cottage was beautifully clean and presented. Furnishings are comfortable and it is well equipped. The owners live close by and we’re friendly and helpful. For birdwatching the cottage was perfectly placed to easily reach all the places we wanted to go to. One of the best cottages I’ve stayed in in over 20 years of cottage holidays. There is nothing to fault and I would hope to return.

Dr S,

The property is spacious and equipped to a high standard. I was particularly impressed with the fresh flowers and basic provisions waiting for us on arrival.

Mr J,

The Stables was a recommendation from a family member who had stayed there the previous year and was impressed enough to say we should try it,we were in no way disappointed,beautifully decorated with quality fittings and equipment.It was a pleasure to spend time indoors when the weather was not so good,the patio is a great space and a real suntrap . The owners were very nice and were there if needed. We would certainly recommend The Stables ,its so well situated just off the A12 gives you quick access to all local attractions.

Mr H,
