“Great venue for a family get together”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Location was excellent as we had 2 very young children and found plenty to do without travelling too far. Plenty of space in the house and very child friendly. Very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and everything you need for a relaxing holiday, Good range of dvds to watch - wifi was slowish but ok, phone signal varied according to what network you were on. The children loved the fact that the cows/sheep visited daily, coming right up to the fence in the back garden. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars was the fridge didn't get cold enough, and the washing machine/dishwasher were both a little temperamental. Also there was 1 set of cutlery for 8 etc so we had to continually either wash by hand or very regularly use the dishwasher. None of these negatives, however, spoilt our week and we all had a wonderful holiday in a beautiful part of England.

“Perfect base for a Dorset holiday”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Stables is a beautiful conversion, tastefully done and in a wonderful setting away from the wider world. Neighbouring properties are close, but privacy is not compromised once inside. Plenty of parking and very well equipped, with everything you could wish for as a family. Despite being a 'dog friendly property' there was no smell, although the vacuum cleaner had clearly been used after occupancy by dogs, as it did smell strongly.
We had a lovely stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be conveniently located to explore the coast of Dorset. Thank you.
