We booked late, only 3 weeks before we went and got the Stables. We have a holiday in England nearly every year and our kids are now in there late teens. I did worry that for the price that we might be dissapointed because personaly I am hard to please but I couldnt find anything wrong. It is set in beutiful countryside with fantastic veiws. The house was very clean, beautifully renovated, lovely big rooms, nice kitchen with everything you could want. Ensuite bathrooms to both bedrooms and all the lovely little touches like all the provisions you think you would have to provide yourself like coffee, tea and sugar, plus a lovely homemade sponge cake. Lovely to live on a working farm with animals everywhere to see. There is a road in front of the house but it isnt very busy, we never saw any logging lorries and its very quiet at night and indoors you cant hear anything. We were made so welcome by some very freindly owners. Took my computer and mobile phone, reception poor which was great, uncontactable and just relaxed. We played scrabble ( one of the many things supplied for you) which I havent done for years and realy enjoyed it. Local villages lovely, restaurants and pubs realy nice. Masses of things to see and to to the point that we couldnt see it all in a week and will be back next year. There was nothing to fault.
