"A spectacular venue..."

"Absolutely beautiful" by Nikki - May 2022
Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful stay. The Stables is absolutely beautiful and you have catered for everything we could have possibly wanted.
The hot tub was definitely a highlight for us.
We have all enjoyed spending lots of time relaxing and the only negative was that we couldn't stay for longer.
I'm sure we'll be planning a return visit.
"The place was perfect" by Jennie - Oct 2021
We had a fabulous weekend, thank you – the place was perfect and had everything we could possibly need!
"The hot tub & swimming pool were the icing on the cake" by Sophie - May 2017
I recently booked The Stables & The Tack Room for my friends hen weekend. It was absolutely wonderful. We were so impressed when we arrived, the size & quality was overwhelming. We wanted for nothing, everything you need is there & it is beautiful. Great comfy beds, sparklingly clean, huge sofas & lots of room. The kitchen was great, with lots of crockery. We hired an amazing chef, recommended on the web site, his food was out of this world! The Hot Tub & swimming pool were the icing on the cake. I cannot recommend The Stables highly enough, a brilliant place for any event or family holiday.
"Amazing place, beautiful" by Manchester - July 2017
Stayed for a long weekend for a friend's birthday. The Stables are beautifully deocrated to a high specification. The rooms were spotless, nothing to fault. Outside lots of room to swim, barbecue and relax, a great place to escape from it all.
