Peace & quiet with great hosts

Location is great - overlooking lovely countryside. The cottage was larger than we expected and had everything we needed. Star gazing with clear skies at night was a big bonus as there is no light pollution, and the area is so quiet; we really enjoyed our stay.The hosts are very approachable and made our stay perfect. We enjoyed an evening at The Exchange in Stur which stages varied events and has a really friendly atmosphere.

christmas at the stables

We were warmly welcomed by the owner. the property was home from home and had been decorated with a lovely Christmas tree. Comfortable size for 4 adults and we had a dog with us. The garden attached to the stables was dog/child friendly. We found a local pub The Green Man very friendly and the food was tasty. The landlord was helpful with giving us space to accommodate a toddler and dog, which allowed us to have an enjoyable time there. The stables is quite isolated if you wanted to do any shopping, having said that found a supermarket in Sturminster Newton offering a good range of products. Enjoyable, peaceful location.

Great rural retreat.

The Stables is a well equipped and spacious self contained property. The owners farmhouse is close at hand, but completely separate. This region is a delight for anyone who likes quiet and natural rural England. There are many delightful small towns and villages within easy reach and some excellent pubs serving really good food. The Dorset coast is not far away and is easily reached. The local lanes are quite narrow but are generally quiet and represent no drawback - they are part of the attraction for us! The house itself was very comfortable and the owners were very helpful and pleasant and respected our privacy perfectly.
