We stayed overnight in The Stall and could happily have stayed a week. From the warm welcome, to the very comfortable room which included a light continental breakfast to the private patio where we enjoyed dinner overlooking the countryside, it all added up to a wonderful stay. As we were only overnighting before heading to Hobbiton in the morning, we didn’t have time to use the pool or spa unfortunately. Just a few minutes out of Cambridge and half hour from Hobbiton it was a great location.

Property's Favourite Review
As is obvious from my title, I loved this place! I am quite a fussy traveler so am rarely as satisfied as I was with our two nights at Huntington Stables. We stayed in The Loft which is so much nicer than in the photos. Besides the lovely decor and fabulous views, every little detail one could think of, and some I never expect, has been accounted for. The accommodation is spotless and everything is in perfect condition, almost like new. I couldn't begin to list all of the little, thoughtful details provided for the comfort of guests. There were the things I always expect but rarely get such as hooks, tissues and adequate storage in the bathroom, good clothing and luggage storage, plenty of good hangers, adequate bedroom side tables with good lighting and plenty of good pillows. Not expected but so appreciated were things like really nice soap, toiletries in case you forgot something, DVD's, games, books, magazines, the kitchen stocked with everything you might want, and all of good quality. A fridge and pantry fully stocked for a really great continental breakfast plus extra drinks and snacks available. There was even a special lap pad for my iPad - so useful and something I didn't even know existed much less expected to find in a hotel room! And that's just the room. The grounds are beautiful and are in process of becoming even more so. There is a bird aviary and a beautiful swimming pool. And although we picked The Loft partly for the advertised views, the whole property has lovely pastoral views of the countryside. I could go on and on but suffice to say, we will be back. And if you are in Cambridge, don't even think of staying anywhere else.

A one night stay on our way to visit family didn't give us time to enjoy this beautiful accommodation. Would love to go back for a relaxing weekend as a couple or with a group of friends to enjoy all that was on offer.

This was a planned weekend with my Sister, Brother and his wife. We cannot recommend our stay highly enough. Fabulous accommodation. Great location. Our wonderful host (Robyn) couldn't do enough for us. Her suggestions, advice, bookings, food and welcoming friendliness were first class. no complaints in any way... Oh, maybe one...we should have stayed longer! But we will be back. And you should go too. Definitely 10/10

My husband and I just needed a couple of relaxing nights away after a difficult few months of health issues, and I'm delighted we found this place. We stayed in the smallest accommodation option, The Stall, which is a charming little gem but with plenty of space for your luggage and clothing, a kitchenette area, a beautiful tiled bathroom with a spacious shower, and a private balcony overlooking the valley. The whole space was absolutely clean as a pin, super comfortable, and providing everything we could have needed, including dressing gowns, spa towels, extra blankets and pillows, numerous tea and coffee options, toiletries... I should also mention that the bed was amazing. The mattress was supportive, so there was no partner disturbance at all, but with a pillow-soft top layer you could snuggle into for pure comfort. Best bed we've had in a hotel. Ever. The breakfast was, I believe, a bit simpler than that provided in the larger accommodations, but it suited us perfectly, with three different cereal options, tinned fruit, delicious 'The Collective' yoghurts, orange juice and fresh milk. All these were replenished daily into refillable containers, which we loved as an eco-friendly way of doing things. The property overall is lovely, with lots of pretty garden areas to relax or wander in. And the owners are currently putting in even more plantings and seating areas, all with those gorgeous rural valley views. The pool area is superb too, and would be amazing for larger family groups, with lots of seating areas around it, but the highlight for us was the big spa pool. Both nights we sat in there for ages, luxuriating in the heat and bubbles and massage jets, looking up at the stars. The whole place, inside and out, is beautifully cared for and presented, and offers a truly peaceful, restorative retreat - and although it's rural, it's a quick drive to town, restaurants, the Te Koutou lake (gorgeous!) and Maungakawa Scenic Reserve. We recommend it highly.

Thank you Anne - you're a gem for leaving such a generous review. So glad you were comfortable in the basic guest room. The bed was new when you stayed and we're so relieved that we bought it (we've had brilliant feedback about it ever since). Thanks again, see you soon, warmest regards, Robyn
