Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Beautiful cottage, furnished to a high standard and very spacious with all mod cons, and such a good idea to have a shower room in the main bedroom and a separate bathroom with bath to please all tastes. Super big flat screen TV in lounge and what luxury to have smaller ones in each bedroom. A nice patio to sit on and parking outside the property. Very nice owners on hand to help with any queries. Good base for seeing what Somerset has to offer What move could you ask for? Highly recommended. Sept 2012.
  2. Outstanding location for peace and quiet. Extremely comfortable and well-appointed property. Perfectly placed for coastal and inland sorties. It is difficult to fulfil all these categories of a holiday in a holiday let but the Old Stables cruised it. May 2012.
  3. The position of the cottage was stunning with terrific views over the valley. The peace and quiet was wonderful. The cottage amenities and qaulity of everything far surpassed our expectations. The weather even surprised us with beautiful sunny warm days. A truly wonderful holiday. May 2012.
  4. Fabulous holiday accommodation, comfortable, great layout, excellent surroundings. Good accessibility for local attractions, the coast and a few National Trust properties. Owners very helpful but discreet. Two very very friendly and carrot munching horses to greet you every morning! March 2012.
  5. Amazing combination of remote countryside location and picturesque exterior combined with clean modern interior equipped with every comfort you need! Fully equipped kitchen means you only need to bring your food and drink! Dec 2011.
  6. The Old Stable is a fantastic property. Very clean and modern and would definitely recomend it to everyone.Sleeps 4 people really well. excellent location and although on owners land it is very private as is infront of owners home and not overlooked. Aug 2011.
  7. Brilliant views, cottage very comfortable. It would of been very helpful if there was an information pack, saying about rubbish collection, recycling, nearest supermarket etc. I would go back though as cottage was good. June 2011.
  8. The cottage was excellent and much bigger than the photos on the web site suggested. Very comfortable with excellent views across Somerset. May 2011.
  9. The Stables is an ideal location for the coast and the countryside, and for those that just want to sit and read that long awaited book. It has every thing one could hope for in a holiday home and more. Hot water that just goes on and the most wonderful huge bath, biggest shock was the en-suite shower room. The sun is in the right position all day so great for breakfast and that drink in the evenings. Can see this property being booked and rebooked. It was easy to find and left you feeling that you wished you had booked 2 weeks rather than one. Ideal for up to 4 people, suitable for young children upwards. I for one will be rebooking for next year. May 2011.
  10. We found that the building was very modern inside, with everything you would need for a perfect self catering holiday. We would definitely go back, preferably during the summer so we could barbecue and eat outside in the private patio area. Nov 2010.
  11. Good location and very peaceful, well equipped and very well presented. Nov 2010.
  12. The accommodation was furnished to a very high standard and was very clean. Apart from not being able to find dish washer tablets everything else was to hand and suited us for local accommodation to our friends wedding. Also the bottle of wine left by the owners was very much appreciated! Oct 2010.
  13. Everything was of the highest quality, very well appointed and very well maintained. Sept 2010.
  14. The position and views from the property are better than can be ascertained form the web site photos. The cottage is an excellent mix of old beams and a modern, light and airy decor. Kitchen facolities were good. Sept 2010.
  15. Smart, clean well presented. Aug 2010.
  16. Nice simple stylish decor. Only had to move a few things to make it baby/toddler proof! Stunning view. Could have done with a kingsize bed in the double room. Good amount of kitchen equipment. Could have used an info folder - for local amenities and services. July 2010.
  17. Ideal location, characterfull building, excellently fitted out, plenty of room, peaceful. July 2010.
  18. Excellent property in a quiet location. The owners are friendly and the stables have been converted in a modern style inside with the accommodation being both comfortable and well equipped. Although the property is in the grounds of the owners home, it does offer a lovely patio area which is private. The property is in an ideal area for visiting Somerset, Devon and Dorset, with an excellent farm shop (Barlows) and supermarkets within easy reach. We would highly recommend this property. May 2010.
  19. The property was first class. May 2010.
