“A great house”
Reviewed 5 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were a group of 3 families with children from ages 2-14 and the house had everything we could need to make our stay just right . The house is so well equipped in all areas, make sure you find the games cupboard in the kitchen. The hot tub was great fun and maintained to a very high standard which is consistent with everything else in the house. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.
The owners Diane and Bill were on hand if we needed them and ensured everything was perfect for us. Thank you.

“An amazing experience from initial enquiry to departure”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

From my initial enquiry, which was responded to quickly and friendly to arriving to one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in. My last fabulous holiday was 6* Dubai, so you get the picture. The homemade cake and local butter and wine and ale to relax following our journey and the chats with Diane and Bill (the owners) made our holiday. It really is a beautiful location and the house has all the mod cons, a giant dining table and hot tub to watching the sheep from the window. I couldn't recommend this place enough. Well definitely be back.

“Fantastic Place to stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is an ideal location to stay. Away from everything and just the perfect setting. The house and grounds are stunning and everything is provided. The welcome pack is the best I've ever had anywhere. I can't speak highly enough about this accommodation.

“SIMPLY PUT.... AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

From the moment we arrived we were blown away, this house is one of the most beautiful self-catering properties we have ever stayed in.
Each room is beautifully decorated and the house itself was so spacious that despite having four young children with us, they were never getting under anyone's feet. Not that they spent much time inside... the garden, or gardens to be more accurate; are simply superb! There was so much room for them to run around and they adored the animals. We all had a fantastic time attempting to play tennis and the hot tub was a fantastic way to unwind, especially once the kids were in bed!
Bill and Diane are truly lovely hosts who have literally thought of everything you could need to make a holiday as special as it should be. From the awesome welcome basket to the cupboard stacked full of games and toys. I can honestly say we were never bored and we all had the time of our lives. I would highly recommend Gables Retreat and we would definitely consider booking this property again.

“an outstanding cottage; the beauty, care and love dedicated to this cottage makes you feel at home!”
Reviewed 2 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

WOW! the website, the pictures and the friendly, professional manner of the owners of this cottage are just the beginnings of such a wonderful stay. nothing does this house justice; as you roll up its long driveway with rose boarders and immaculate gardens you are faced with a stunning house to which you think it can't get any better. as you walk into the entrance of the house you are filled with light, beauty, attention to detail and a sense that this house is going to be something more speical then anything you have stayed in before. In every room, the colours, textures, ornaments and furnishings create a homely atmosphere to which relaxtion comes naturally. the outside offers stunning views, peace and tranquility and the hot tub and horses simultaneously create a fun, lively atmosphere. the owners and their family (including the dogs) are polite, helpful, friendly and most importantly very professional. there is not enough space to explain how fantastic this cottage is. Seeing is most certainly believing.
