A charming gem in the middle of the sticks!
We were looking for a charming property off the beaten track and the stables certainly didn't disappoint.
The carrot cake, lemonade and local cider were a lovely gesture and went down extremely well, so thank you.
The property was perfect for my family which consist of the 3 of us. Though it easily accommodates for up to 6 (we had friends stay) and it still felt like you could swing a cat without breaking any thing!
The masterbedroom felt like a king/queens chambers with a bed so comfortable that I could have easily of stayed in bed all day.
The blind was broken and we were updated of this prior to arrival but a little annoying as it would have been nice to have some natural light during the day!
The secondary bedroom was well equipped and comfortable enough. I base that on the fact that our 3 year old son fell asleep there on more than one occasion.
The bathroom upstairs accommodates a deep bath tub, perfect for soaking up some bubbles after a long country walk in the surrounding areas.
Downstairs bathroom has a huge walk in shower...not to be missed!
The lounge has a stunning cast iron fire place and was very much welcomed as the temperature had plummeted on the night we arrived. (Please see suggestions below).
The kitchen was fully equipped for everything we needed, though it only had 4 knives, so perhaps worth running an up-to-date check after guests vacate the property.
The location was conveniently placed with a ten minute drive to local amenities in the charming town of Kingsbridge and the beach another 20 min away.
Overall our stay was excellent and we would highly recommend it to our friends and family and no dounts we'll be back.
A few points to Dawn and Quintin.
Small details make a difference and we would recommend the following:
- Throws/blankets for the leather sofa's would have been a welcomed addition, particularly given the time of year.
- Firewood. You have a beautiful fireplace but you didnt have a small stock of logs/kindling.
There's a small pallet in the front courtyard, an ideal place to put some. (We left some for the next guess) ; )
We purchased a few wheelbarrows from a local of the residence locally for which we paid a nominal sum of £20!
- The outdoor firepit couldn't be used as someone had covered it with 8ft worth of dead brush.
It might be worth communicating with neiboughs as we were disappointed not to be able to use this facility.
Overall a wonderful stay. Thank you.
The Stables was a beautiful place to stay. Nice quality furnishings (white company bed linen) gorgeous bathrooms (loved the shower) and a really well equipped kitchen. It suited our needs very well.
The carrot cake and drink waiting for us on arrival was a nice treat.
On a practical level small things that could be provided that weren’t; salt and pepper, tin foil and cling film. No big deal but would have been handy to have.
Nice base for exploring South Devon
Great house, ideal for families
We had a great time here in June. Very comfortable with everything you could need for a great holiday. Really well located too - no where is very far away.
Lovely barn with good facilities and the neighbors are very friendly
The stables coupled with an almost perfect week of warm sunshine made a fantastic break for us and our dogs.
We visited Salcombe North sands Dartmouth and surrounding areas what a beautiful part of the country .The barn had a very comfortable bed large bath and plenty of hot water.
