A lovely comfortable property with its own garden area. Very peaceful relaxing & spacious. We hope to visit again.
Mr Salmon August 2023
Cottage was very comfortable and cosy and had all the equipment that we needed. Owners were helpful and on hand but not intrusive, they even sent a text message one evening to check that we were warm enough. They pointed out where the owl box wih young owls were and we had the fantastic experience of them flying over our heads in the evening. The paddock behind the cottage to give our dog an early morning walk before going off for the day was very useful and we made use of the table-tennis for family competitions.
Overall great location, great cottage, great holiday.
Mr Holmes June 2023
Lovely accomodation in a rural farmland setting for a peaceful relaxing stay. Not very far from town for supplies. Due to good weather ate most meals on patio. Highly Recommended.
Mrs Whitwick June 2023
The Stables is set in a very quiet area (down a short, bumpy lane). I am a wheelchair user and did have a problem with the wet room (the owner did act promptly and provided non slip mats which were a great help. Also the low settees were difficult for me to transfer from my chair.
The cottage has been finished beautifully and has a lovely private garden and access to a wildflower paddock.
Mrs Hemns May 2023
Lovely outlook and a quiet relaxing stay. Comfortable bedrooms. Very clean.
Mrs Kelly April 2023
The Stables is a lovely, cosy cottage, suitable for 4 adults. Although it is sited on a working farm it is very quiet and private . The owners are friendly and a lovely welcome pack awaited us when we arrived. We had everything we needed in the spacious accommodation. The only drawback was the access road which was very narrow with potholes and bumps. Careful, slow driving was necessary.
Mrs Hedges April 2023
This is an ideal cottage if you want peace and quiet and a safe enclosed garden with plenty of space for dog. I didn't have to worry about her getting out of the garden and the extra bonus of a fully fenced paddock where it was safe to allow her a run off lead. The layout and comfort of the cottage was superb with amazing bedding. There was plenty to see and do within a twelve mile radius including dog beach at Charmouth. Would definitely recommend.
Mrs Wise February 2023
Excellent quality cottage, perfect for our family short break.
Mr Scott-Ham January 2023
Excellent accommodation with everything needed for a self catering break. Splendid setting and great for our Labrador, who enjoyed the self contained garden and walking in the paddock at the back of the cottage.
Miss Lanckmans December 2022
We stayed at The Stables over the new year, the cottage itself was lovely, it had all the things you needed and was very clean. Plenty of parking, and a decent size garden.
We arrived to cakes, bicsuits, tea bags etc, the small touches made you feel welcome. The location of the property is great too, you are no longer than a 15 min drive from a small town with shops. We would happily recommend this place to friends and family, and would definitely stay here again.

Larger than the photos, this exo barn conversion just gives and gives. Peaceful and quiet, The Stables is a cosy, comfortable, beautifully laid out and equipped home. Crisp white cotton on comfy beds. Surrounede by fields. Away from it all, yet near enough to many major attractions. A truly wonderful holiday.
Mrs Burger August 2022
Classic Cottages website and booking system was easy to use, effectively keeping us updated prior to our trip ??
Mrs Hawes August 2022
Right from our arrival, I cannot fault this adorable cottage. The owners made our arrival so much more by adding a summer vase of flowers, and welcoming gifts such as locally produced cake, biscuits, tea and milk. The cottage was so clean, well stocked and beautifully furnished. The beds and pillows were SO comfy, we all had a wonderful nights sleep after each busy day exploring the marvels of Devon and Somerset. My husband is a paraplegic and found the cottage easy to navigate, with the en-suite wheel-in shower and height of bed being perfect. The enclosed garden was very much appreciated by our Cocker Spaniel who had the run of the garden each day we were home. I highly recommend this cottage to everybody. Such a gem!
Mr Sansbury June 2022

Ms Watkins March 2022
We had a fantastic holiday at The Stables in March. The place was beautifully presented and clean with plenty of storage, the beds were super comfortable and huge, and there was plenty of hot water. The garden was properly secure so no need to worry about the dog escaping, and having the field behind to exercise the dog in was a fantastic bonus! The 2 sun beds in the garden were a great addition to the patio furniture to relax on. Jon and Amanda were really friendly and helpful with advice on walks etc. and very accommodating. It's a very peaceful location with lots of wildlife around and we didn't want to come home! We would thoroughly recommend it and hope to return.
Mrs Storey October 2021
The Stables is a perfect dog friendly rural retreat. Beautifully decorated and furnished - everything you could possibly need is there for you and more with oodles of storage. The views are magnificent and it is so peaceful - yet central for everything. A real find.
Mrs Payne September 2021

Miss Dimmock July 2021
The Stables is a lovely property, very well equipped and comfortable. It’s probably the best self catering accommodation we have used and we’ve used lots. We will definitely be back for another stay.
Mr Talbot May 2021
Conveniently situated as a base to explore surrounding Counties or simply an excellent location to chill out - regardless of weather.
Dr Maltby April 2021
Exceptional spacious property with high quality furnishings and equipment. Wonderful situation for walks in country and coast, quiet but not isolated. Own lovely private outside area with barbecue facilities. Charming host. Ideal for two couples as each bedroom en-suite and well separated from each other. Idyllic really.
