Wonderful family holiday. Lots of space. Very friendly welcome from the owners. Lovely pool, though not used much due to weather! no shops in the village but great shopping in tewksbury, a short car ride away. Maureen from Nottingham (04 August 2017)
Beautiful spacious barn conversion thoughtfully designed and set lovely rural environment. The kitchen, eating and sitting area were fantastic. Nobody felt on top of each other . children loved seeing the cows every day but the highlight was the pool. Good selection of games too. We did not need any other nearby amenities to amuse the children. But walked to lower lode and enjoyed the ferry ride and meander to the abbey. The malverns and ledbury in easy reach. Would certainly stay again. Connie from Hungerford (02 June 2017)
Warm, and comfortable cottage. we stayed too early in the year to use the pool but it looked great. good snooker table and table tennis room. lovely countryside around forthampton and tewkesbury - although some public footpaths we found blocked and styles overgrown. . the aga took some getting used to and if you need to use the sofa bed (as we did) be aware that it's position has no easy access to a bathroom except through two doors and an open-air walkway. . . despite these small drawbacks we had a great time at the stables. Ivan from Exeter (05 May 2017)
The stables is really lovely, a beautiful converted barn with lots of space for our family of 9. The pool table was a great success! Ann from Canterbury (14 April 2017)
Wonderful spacious accommodation for our family pre-christmas get together. it was mild weather the week we stayed and the central heating was so efficient we didn't get a chance to try the woodburning fires. we loved the snooker table inside the property. table tennis was available but was situated in an outbuilding so, as it was damp, we didn't play. huge bedrooms, excellent cooking facilities and plenty of sofa space. couple of negatives were the wetroom plumbing..prepare to be flooded..in all fairness, the owner did point this issue out to us but it does need resolving. secondly, the smaller sofa by the tv in the main living area needs replacing. lovely rural pub a mile away, by the river. tewkesbury is very pretty, is 5 mins away with aldi and morrisons. we visited the christmas craft fair and market..delicious farmers sausages, especially the lamb and mint. excellent location for the gloucester docks, worcester. Great cathedral.. croome park nt. lots of fabulous walks from property. would recommend x Debbie from Canterbury (16 December 2016)
Excellent house for a family celebration. the sitting room was a little scruffy but, as we had two babies and two dogs with us, that suited us very well. The bedrooms were all very spacious and the snooker table was a good facility. Brenda from Birmingham (17 October 2016)
We absolutely loved this place! hosts were lovely and let us do our thing.. . rooms were spacious, well equipped (good quality heaters and heating), kitchen was wel stocked. . . I cannot fault this place and can't wait to go back again! thank you! Robert from Virginia Water (03 October 2016)
An amazing cottage, location fabulous to visit loads of local places/towns, lots of info baskets there from the owners which were really useful. lovely dog friendly pub by the river about 30min walk which does lovely food. Cottage was so well equipped, probably the best we have stayed in, layout really good for families/groups as its kind of split into two halves, including another tv area and games rooms which is brilliant. only negative which in no way spoilt anything is that the sofas are all a bit old and tired and didn't provide any support for the older people in the group so maybe need changing. but everything else was superb and am already thinking about returning with the family for a christmas break. owners were so helpful, thank you for letting us stay, fab time had by all Alison from Coventry (23 September 2016)
An amazing place with so much to do. Our party ranged from 4 to 70 and with a swimming pool, table tennis and snooker table, we were on the go from morning to night. The only slight downside was that we had no internet for most of the week due to a fault. Tony from Tiverton (26 August 2016)
A home away from home, loved it xxx Christine from Gateshead (19 August 2016)
Loved it Sue from Littlehampton (05 August 2016)
Space and set up of the house was very good. As a barn conversion the walls and ceilings were particularly thin and noise transmitted a lot through the house. The house was not very clean and in our opinion needed a good clean. We knew we had a shared swimming pool with the owner but were disappointed one day when the owner asked to reserve the pool solely for him and his family, as it was the hottest day of the year and we had 5 children with us, we phoned the letting agent and he retracted his request, we made it very clear we didn't mind sharing with him as per the terms of the agreement. On our arrival the owner apologized for the bad smell in one of the bedrooms and bathroom, this didn't get any better as the week went on so we complained, he then got a drainage expert to check out the drains but it made no difference, we lived with a not very nice drainage smell in one of the bedrooms for the whole week. Stephen from Southampton (22 July 2016)
We had a fantastic time here. It really is a gorgeous place. we were 8 adults and 5 children. Perfect for hide and seek..making big group meals (and sitting down to them together), having a bbq, jaunts into town or countryside..etc. some can chill in the lounge while others play pool, or play in the pool!!! the pool was a huge bonus. loved it. Warm, clean, so much fun. Beautifully planted around the outside. Good security to prevent accidents. . the only downside are the two bedrooms in the part with the pool table. The whole section of house is great - pool table and seating area etc. The upstairs room is beautiful but if a couple wanted to stay there, there are only twin beds and..you'd need to be comfortable enough to want to use the loo in front of each other!! (well, behind a screen). the downstairs room is a very generous size but it feels a little bit odd with two outside doors. Also a faint whiff of manure crept in a couple of times (a reminder you are in the country next to an active farm)!. overall we really loved it. Would definitely go back again. Thanks! Confirmed Guest (11 July 2016)
We had been before so knew what to expect . this is a lovely property which is ideal for a group . Confirmed Guest (02 November 2015)
Most enjoyable some of the kitchen equipment could do with replacing baking trays especially also a number of mugs were chipped a milk jug to use on the table would have been useful . house and surrounding countryside beautiful provided us with a lovely holiday thankyou Confirmed Guest (23 October 2015)
Lovely cottage with a welcoming family. Thanks Confirmed Guest (11 September 2015)
The stables suited our party of 10, including children ages 7, 3, 2 and 17 months, extremely well. The layout allowed for we grandparents to have a 'wing' of our own. Our children and their children all were happy with their rooms and bathroom facilities too. We were particularly pleased with the high level of attention to safety --especially the way the fine swimming pool is walled and gated so that children cannot enter the area. we highly recommended mm end this venue for multigenerational families. Sarah from North London (04 September 2015)
Fabulous house, large and spacious which is great when there are a lot of people on holiday together. Well equipped kitchen. Carole from Rainham Kent (07 August 2015)
We enjoyed the holiday, and the owners were friendly and helpful. the beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen and living room were great for a group. however, 2 rooms are separated from the others, and one bathroom is in the bedroom. this could be difficult for a family. everything was very clean. The pool was very warm and inviting, and the snooker room was popular! there were very inquisitive cows in the adjoining field, and other interesting birds and wildlife. the old village is not far, though shops are in tewkesbury. we enjoyed the visit. Confirmed Guest (12 June 2015)
Fantastic large house. felt privileged to stay there. Richard from Bognor Regis (27 March 2015)
Had a fantastic time at the a stables celebrating my 60th birthday with 3 generations of the family. the pool table was a real bonus with the men and boys and the dogs had a wonderful time. Pity about the weather as there were many lovely walks around the area, but too wet for us to take advantage. would have appreciated a tumble drier to dry all of the wet doggy towels, but other than that a great time was had by all. we will certainly be back. Sue from Benfleet, Essex (14 November 2014)
It was a perfect place for a family get-together. there were lovely walks near4by and we were lucky to have good weather. I would thoroughly recommend it to others. Caroline from Twickenham (31 October 2014)
Excellent in all respects. The family were very hospitable and made us really welcome. Mary from Rugby (14 July 2014)
Soo much space! we were really surpisedat just how large teh accommodation was. With plenty of room for everyone, including enough for the teenagers to be out of the way in the games room, this was a really great place for a large family holiday. Beautiful location out in the country side but not too far from places to go. . thank you for a lovely holiday. . james & carolyn James from Maidstone (30 May 2014)
Beautiful house. More space than we knew what to do with. Perfect setting for a family celebration. Catered for all of our needs. We were 10 adults and 3 children under the age of 3. . rural location. Peaceful even with the neighbours (herd cows!). Clare from Chesterfield (25 April 2014)
Had doubts about taking extended family away for the week but the stables were just perfect in which both young and old and the dogs were very well catered for. Plenty of space for all. Handy location for many interesting attractions including the malverns and the cotswolds. Walking along the severn river bank was peaceful bliss but choose a time when a bit of a breeze drives away the midges. We also enjoyed learning about the local area from the neighbouring farmer and his family. Breakfast with the cows looking in through the window was also quite special. For pub meals try the hunters inn (buckbury) or the drum and monkey (newbridge green nr upton) both on the b4211. Robert from Havant (18 April 2014)
Fantastic property - suited our needs to a tee Annette from Chesterfield (17 March 2014)
Cottage was as described and suitable for our needs. we were a family party of 11, aged from 2 to 86. Only complaint was cooker small for the number of people but it was winter and we ate in. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and some of our party intend to go again. Confirmed Purchaser (27 January 2014)
Plenty of room and activities for all ages. Snooker table, table tennis, books and toys. Weather was wet and windy, but this did not distract from enjoyment. Local farmers allowed children to look around farm and play in haybarn.good places to eat in town and country pubs. Wifi an added bonus. Robert from Ruislip (04 January 2014)
Excellent very spacious house, great for three families with plenty of escape space. the electric aga took some getting used to, but christmas dinner for 13 was successfully delivered. Lots of kitchen pots and pans, plates etc. take a wifi repeater if you want whole house coverage for internet access. 2 double beds ,rest are twins, which would be nice if they were zip together, but 10/10 for experience and value for money. Simon from Church Stretton (28 December 2013)
I stayed there with 11 friends. We had a fantastic weekend. It is a bit in the middle of no where but it was just what we wanted!! plus not far to local amenities. It was so much bigger than we expected so at no point did we feel we were on top of each other. Very well presented and just a lovely big house to stay in!! we loved the fact that the house was in two but still able to move around without having to go outside. Great facilities-we even managed to cook a full roast dinner for 12 in it. Having two cookers was a blessing. Fridges could do with being bigger but that was our only issue. . we will defiantly stay there again, maybe next time in the summer so we can use the pool. . thank you-it was fab!! :-) Suzie from Birmingham (04 November 2013)
A fantastic property in a good rural location. good size rooms with extra finishing touches. friendly owners on site. Highly recommended. Kim from Stansted (30 September 2013)
A very enjoyable long weekend with friends with ample room and good facilities and plenty of things to do. We swam, played boules and table-tennis and visited tewkesbury and stratford (rsc). only slight quibble would be that the electric range took a while to get up to reasonable cooking temperature - so we just had to have another drink and wait for the beans to boil. Ian from Clun, Shropshire (09 September 2013)
Great place for family get together of all ages,spacious,larger than expected swimming pool,competitive table tennis tournaments keeping all the children very busy not to mention the snooker!only downside was constant need to eliminate flies and wasps! Marian from Poynton Stockport (30 August 2013)
Excellent accommodation heated swimming pool a bonas Leonard from Shrewsbury (23 August 2013)
10 people in party. 4 adults, 4 oaps and 2 kids (10 and 12). . loads of room in shared areas for us all with scope to find a quiet space to chill out. Pictures on website do not do it justice. . good quality beds and linen provided for comfortable nights sleep. All had own bathrooms (one across corridor) and plenty of hot water. . handy to have swimming towels provided in addition to the ones we brought ourselves. Pool temperature too cool for oap's to have a go but the rest of us enjoyed our daily dips. No problems encountered sharing pool with owners. . 10 year old enjoyed ping pong. Played bingo provided but games cupboard could do with a couple more games/quizzes in. Wifi good. . bit to far for oaps to walk back from nearby pub so used taxi. Garage nearby by for daily basics such as bread, milk and papers although tewksbury not far any way. . had a great time - planning a return as cottage and facilities great for our group and loads to do in the area. One of the best we have stayed in over the years. Pam from Isle Of Man (16 August 2013)
Accommodation was very spacoius. Plenty of room to allow all in our party space. With three lounges plus a landing seating area, it was possible to escape to your own private space. All bedrooms were large. The heated pool and 3/4 size snooker table were a bonus. The only down side was the electric aga type cooker which was insufficient for cooking for ten. As soon as the hotplates were put into use, critical heat was lost out of the oven. In addition, the cow shed in the adjacent field supplied hundreds of unwanted flies into the property. The only way to keep those out was to keep all doors and windows closed. In any significant heat, the temperature was unbearable requiring doors and windows to be opened welcoming back the flies. Fly screens if fitted should overcome the problem. Lawrence from Winsford, Cheshire (09 August 2013)
11 of us from age 4 to 77 had a wonderful holiday at the stables. the biggest 'hit' was the outside heated pool. The disabled facilities were excellent. the dog had a lovely time too with an enclosed garden for his use. Jennifer from West Sussex (02 August 2013)
Lovely pool & spacious house Paul from Windlesham (01 Jul 2013)
Space, ameinities, pool, a great place for family get together with enough room to have own space when needed. Chris from Southampton (17 Jun 2013)
The house was great! perfect for large groups. The snooker table was a real bonus for keeping the boys (and sometimes girls) entertained when the weather wasn't great. It was really spacious which meant we didn't get under each others feet. The owners were there when you needed them but otherwise melted into the background. Maureen from Norwich (31 May 2013)
Very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Snooker table and swimming pool are great for everyone. Louisa from Hertford (10 May 2013)
Excellent property that was spacious, clean, and well equipped. 14 of us (10 adults and 4 kids) didn't feel cramped at all. the owners were keen to meet our needs and happy to answer any queries before our stay. Phil from East Molesey (29 April 2013)
Excellent accommodation for a family get together. Extremely spacious. All rooms were furnished and decorated to a high standard. We couldn't have asked for any more. Laura from Melton Mowbray (15 April 2013)
Big enough for 5 couples each with own bathroom and lots of space. nice property. Hannah from Wellingborough (07 January 2013)
A beautiful spacious house within wonderful countryside. The owners had thought of everything and were on hand nearby to help. Emma from Cardiff (17 December 2012)
Beautiful accommodation with lots of large rooms good for when you have children with you. Rural location but not too far from civilisation. House had a lot of character. Emma from Harlow (24 September 2012)
