    Wonderful countryside getaway in a cosy little house. We loved exploring the rambling garden and the surrounding area!

    Spent 2 weeks at this lovely place. Adrian the current estate owner was an excellent host and made us feel most welcome. The ambiance of the accommodation was great and the extensive grounds were a bonus for our mini Doberman pinscher who relished with the many scents and sounds the grounds presented him with. Good place to unwind and re-charge our "human" run down batteries. All in all it was a lovely place to spend 2 weeks- many walks outside the estate was an added extra. Locals in nearby villages were friendly. A great selection of books were inside the accommodation it was like having an indoor personal library. As always time passes so quickly and this was certainly the case at the old stables, it was gone in a flash but we have many pleasing memories of this place were in some respects time stands still.!
