Amazing stay away with fantastic views. We loved it and was a great break away from our normal busy work life. Would highly recommend.

Mr P,

We had an amazing stay here at The Stables. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here. Rosie was a lovely host and the little touches around the property really made our stay! Waking up to the beautiful nature and watching the sheep in the fields totally took us away from our hectic city life. We cannot wait to come back! Best wishes

Arjun & S,
