The Stables is perfect for a group get together. Plenty of room for us all to be together in the lounge, dining room or kitchen yet also enough space to take a quiet spot if the mood takes you. Kitchen so well equipped with plenty of plates etc (so many places only supply 1 place setting per person). We used a private caterer one evening (Le Frog from Tiverton) which was excellent and added to the whole celebration. The views are lovely. Beware no mobile signal but the Wifi was OK. All the bedrooms were lovely and each having its own bathroom is a rarity in large properties. Owners are nearby if you need them and very helpful. Lovely cake and wine was awaiting our arrival which was much appreciated. Although we were very early in January the Xmas tree and some tasteful decorations were still there which was another nice touch. We all agreed we'd like to go back as soon as we can figure out the timing. Can't recommend highly enough.



Lovely place for a big family get-together!

We stayed at The Stables for a week, a family party of 11 of three generations. We found it clean, warm, roomy and well equipped (although the instructions for the Range cooker assumed some previous knowledge!). The kitchen was particularly spacious, and the island feature leant itself to serve-yourself meals.
The layout meant that the gamers did not clash with the TV watchers, and vice versa.

Great property for family get away. Location wonderful for exploring North Devon, then back for a round of tennis whilst dinner cooking. Our children (all in their 30's) really enjoyed it.



A very happy Easter

We had a family vacation at the Stables over Easter.There was four families and we had plenty of room to have our own space as well as great spaces for us all to come together. The six bedrooms were excellent with most being en-suite. Nobody was unhappy with their rooms. The outside space was lovely with plenty of parking. The tennis court was great and we had our own version of Wimbledon. A great place to stay in an excellent location for visiting north Devon

Three families getting together to celebrate New Year in style. The cottage is amazing, the kitchen is well equipped, the seating is plentiful and very comfortable and the dining table is enormous!

The 6 en-suite bedrooms were beautifully decorated, and it was a luxury for everyone to have their own bathroom. It is very rare to find enough en-suite bedrooms at a reasonable price. The only slight negative is that 3 of the bathrooms had baths with hand held shower attachments, rather than proper showers.

We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. There was even a cake and a bottle of wine to welcome us on arrival.
