Just a superb property with matching hosts. Idyllic setting and the stables are charming and finished to a very high standard. Whilst we always bring additional utensils and linen to any getaway these simply are not needed as everything was provided. Appliances are clean and knives are sharp!!! Unheard of!
Just loved it and will definitely be back.
Mandy & David are charming, helpful and attentive but in no way intrusive.
Worth the little bit more you have to pay for similar properties for the seclusion but easy access to amenities nearby.
Great venue for a relaxing break - charming and dog friendly accommodation - and the hot tub is special.
A whole-hearted recommendation from me !
The Stables offers comfortable accommodation for all the family. It has amazing views over the fields to the rear. The hot tub is a very welcome addition and was well used. Sitting in there with a glass of wine, makes it a wonderful way to relax.
Although the cottage seems a bit isolated, the next town of Coleford is only 10 minutes drive away with a large Co-op and a Tesco Express for any daily requirements. The local pubs (The Dog and Muffler and the New Inn) that Mandy and David recommend, are well worth a visit and are dog friendly.
As with any rental property, you are expected to leave it in a clean condition, ready for the next guests. However, some of the soft furnishings may require a deeper clean in the near future.
Our dog enjoyed the garden at the cottage, and walks around Symonds Yat and the Forest of Dean. We would definitely recommend the property to other people.
Just back from a weekend at The Stables. The cottage is spacious and very cosy with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large with a great shower. The hot tub was a perfect way to unwind and relax at the end of the day. The location is remote so it's very peaceful and within walking distance to pubs and restaurants. It was a brilliant weekend and I'd highly recommend The Stables to anyone
Rented The Stables cottage for a romantic anniversary. The cottage is incredibly cozy, and the friendliness and hospitality of David and Mandy made the stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. Other great things: manageable drive time from London, amazing surroundings (the view from the cottage is breathtaking!). And, oh, did I mention the private outdoors hot tub?..
