“Home away from home”

One of the best stays we have had since ages. Right from the day we booked the property till we drove out of the gate it was a wonderful experience. Simon was very kind enough to give us complimentaries such as cereals, milk, eggs, crumpets, chocolate for the little one and lots of tea bags and sugar. Thanks Simon. The property is very homely on the inside and equally refreshing on the outside. We had the entire garden for our own use. Our 2 yr old was excited with the trampoline, football, and of course chickens and the sheep. The garden is beautifully maintained and so is the house. The house is a old stable with wooden beams but modernized to a high standard. We also had lots of toys for the little one to play with. The pub visit on a Saturday evening was a welcome bonus. Sundown adventure park is nearby and the whole area is so tranquil. Best 2 nights of sleep in a year for all of us. A perfect village getaway. Am looking forward for our next visit. Thanks Simon.

“Perfect cottage holiday”
Reviewed 27 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Have just returned from a three night stay at Stable Cottage. Simon and Debbie were friendly from the moment I booked online to the moment we left the cottage. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage was immaculately clean and the garden is lovely. There were enough extras for anyone's immediate needs; tea, coffee, milk, butter, rolls, cereal and even a bottle of wine. The cottage is well equipped and although we were just two adults and a dog, there were plenty of toys and games to keep children happy. Thank you Simon and Debbie, we really enjoyed our stay.

“Beautiful House - Excellent Family Break”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had an excellent break in this beautiful house. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and really went the extra mile. Our toddler was so excited to have his own "special" chair (high chair) and a bed just for him. The house was a safe space for him to explore and play especially as there are no stairs to worry about. The garden was a real bonus too for him to run about. The house was very well equipped with so many thoughtful touches provided so we also really enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing break. We would recommend this for adults or families alike. Lovely location and lovely owners who couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Already planning our next visit!

“peaceful and immaculate”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A peaceful single storey cottage set back from the quiet road with its own garden behind. We stayed for 2 nights while attending Osberton Horse Trials nearby, the owners were actually away but were very helpful beforehand and Granny who was house sitting was very welcoming and kind. Nice roomy kitchen and living area.

Perfect for a family visit. Great hosts who made us feel very welcome.
Great to be able to bring our dog.
we all had a great time exploring the surrounding area.
would thoroughly recommend. Spotlessly clean a home from home.
