A beautiful cottage, in a quiet idyllic setting. We have enjoyed a holiday here for the last 3 years, and definitely intend to return.

This is a lovely property and we loved it so much that we have booked again for next year to make it our third stay in total as so enamoured are we with the property’s calibre charm comfort cleanliness and location . (beautiful part of Devon.) Thoroughly recommend and booking was so efficient thorough and effortless via classic cottages.

Stable cottage was more than we expected,good location ,fantastic amenities and exactly as described if not even better ! The owners were attentive ,but not in any way intrusive..and as for their dog…Ginny,we could easily have been arrested for dog napping! We will definitely be back next year ,but for longer ….that for us says it all Thank you to all concerned Chris and Mel

An excellent cottage in a great location. It is spacious, well appointed, and very easy to settle into. The extra touches by the generous hosts were greatly appreciated. We especially enjoyed the garden, with its open views. The bank of primroses was stunning, and the summerhouse is a great place for tea and a sit in the sun. We hope to become "regulars" here!

One of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The cottage itself is very well equipped and very comfortable. The garden is beautiful (careful if you have young children as there is a pond), and I've never seen so many different birds coming to feed at a bird feeder. Stay here - you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful cottage in serene surroundings with amazing gardens.The hosts were very welcoming and would have no hesitation in returning as soon as possible!

The cottage was vey clean and very well equipped it was home from home.

Would not hesitate in recommending Stable Cottage. This cottage is of a very high standard and is very spacious. The cottage was immaculately clean, extremely well presented, and very comfortable. Stable cottage was very well equipped, the furniture and drapers/blinds were quality. Everything about Stable Coattge was of a very high standard. The location could not be better for travelling Devon south coast. Access to the large attached garden, the summer house and the views enhanced the high quality of this lovely cottage.

Enjoyed a very peaceful stay at Stable Cottage this summer. Very quiet location and lots of wildlife in the garden. The cottage is comfy and well equipped. The only thing I would suggest is to provide a few books/secondhand toys for children but otherwise it was perfect. I would definitely return here. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Welcoming hosts. Comfortable and spacious cottage with a lovely garden in a good location.

the cottage was everything as described and more. Perfect, peaceful setting in AONB.

Very comfortable and well equipped, one of the best cottages we have stayed in!

Nothing really to add to our comments last year; still an idyllic retreat, set in a beautiful, private garden in a lovely setting. We very much hope to return.. Stable cottage remains our favourite of the many of your excellent properties we have stayed in over the years.

Very comfortable, tranquil setting that really made us feel closer to nature.

Stable cottage is a fantastic place to stay with its large garden and wildlife especially the many various birds. The kitchen is large and fully equipped the beds are comfortable. The area has many good walks most uphill. There are lots of places to visit inland or on the coast including Lyme Regis.

We had a wonderful stay at Stable Cottage and certainly do recommend highly. The property exceeded our expectations in terms of calibre. The cottage oozes charm and character. It is incredibly spacious with a beautiful private garden. The hosts are friendly and were very informative about the county and provided us with great tips. We must also mention that we were very impressed by the booking agency Classic. The booking was undertaken with efficiency from start to finish and the website is of high standard going the extra mile in its descriptions of each individual property let with its accompanying recommendations. We will certainly use again for future bookings and will also return one day to this charming property. Thank You.

We enjoyed our week at Stable Cottage very much. The owners were most welcoming and made it clear that we should contact them if we had any problems. I also have to mention their adorable dog Ginnie who is a delight! The cottage was spacious, warm and comfortable with everything you might need. There is a beautiful, peaceful garden surrounded by open countryside. We enjoyed watching the birds on the feeders near the cottage window and a daily visit to the chickens at the bottom of the garden! We spent more time at the cottage than we would normally do on holiday as we were still cautious about eating out but we really couldn't have had a better place to do so and had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday after what has been a terrible year.

We we recommend this accommodation without any hesitation and had a really lovely week there. The log fire was great for the Autumn.

What a lovely break away we had in this lovely spacious cottage with amazing scenery in a very quiet and peaceful location. The cottage had everything we needed, with both traditional and modern features, it was very clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Everywhere you looked in the garden there were stunning view's and the wildlife was in abundance. One of the best cottages we have stayed in with the owners being so welcoming. Can't wait to go back!!

Very comfortable , very well equipped cottage , owners were very friendly even had some freshly squeezed apple juice and fresh eggs laid by hens in garden . Ideal location for visits to local seaside towns hope to return .

We have used your cottages for many years, as we have never been disappointed, and we think Stable Cottage is one of the best we have had.

A lovely cottage with a beautiful garden. We enjoyed the views and the children enjoyed seeing the sheep In the field and the chickens in the garden. A lovely holiday.

We had an amazing week in Dorset. Lovely cottage with incredible views across the fields from a beautiful garden. The garden is filled with birds and flowers and the cottage is comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very helpful.

Spacious light and open property with excellent amenities. Extremely clean and all kitchen wear was excellent- the best we have seen in any rental.we had a relaxing stay at Stable Cottage and the owners were great- welcoming and even posted me items i’d left behind by accident which was superb. There are plenty of places to visit nearby and the garden and views are outstanding and so well kept. Thanks to the owners for such a relaxing week away- just what we needed after lockdown.

Carol and Brian, We have just spent a lovely week in this spacious well equipped cottage. The garden is well maintained and has extensive rural views. It is very relaxing to sit in as is the large summer house. We visited Burrow Farm Gardens,Beer, Honiton, Branscombe,The Donkey Sanctary and went on the tram from Colyton to Seaton and then back to Colyton. Thank you Martin and Sarah for making us feel so welcome and for the "treats" on our arrival. We have already booked for next year!

Photos do not do this lovely cottage justice. It is surrounded by the most beautiful gardens, with a lovely view. It is seconds from the A35, so very easy to find, with no traffic noise. The owners and their gorgeous dog, Ginnie, were very welcoming. We have been to more than 30 Classic cottages and this has to be best equipped we have seen. We wanted for nothing. Even the weather was good! We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing break.

Thanks so much for your review of Stable Cottage. It's really lovely to hear you had such a wonderful time in Honiton overall and we hope to welcome you again in the future to continue your explorations of such a beautiful county. 30 Classic Cottages will take some beating but we're sure you're up to the challenge and we look forward to welcoming you again soon! Bryony, Customer Support

We had a most enjoyable long weekend in Devon staying in this excellent cottage. It is spacious and extremely well equipped, with excellent facilities that we made good use of. The owners were very welcoming and the eggs from the hens in the garden were delicious. Highly recommended.

Thanks for reviewing Stable Cottage - we're delighted you had a great time overall and those fresh eggs sound delicious! Bryony, Customer Support

This is a very comfortable, spacious cottage in a beautiful quiet spot but also near enough to the coast and other places of interest to make our stay extremely enjoyable.

This cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished. We visited in early October and it was surprisingly warm despite the high ceilings in most rooms. Bathrooms and kitchen were very well fitted out. A lovely big summerhouse in the garden, with hens nearby. The owners live in the adjacent cottage and were very friendly and helpful. It's a good location, easy to get to both Honiton and Lyme Regis. Highly recommended!

A really lovely property which we have been fortunate to stay in during its first year of availability. Everything is of a high standard, and it more than fulfilled our hopes and expectations. We certainly plan to come again.

Very well furnished and equipped, beautiful garden and peaceful location. Light and airy.

We were honoured to have been the first ever guests at Stable Cottage. Sarah and Martin were very caring hosts, and their dog, Ginny, a joyously friendly addition. The cottage is located in within a farm environment surrounded by beautiful countryside, and backed by a spacious and well tended garden in which spent happy hours. The facilities within the cottage were excellent and we all particularly enjoyed the very large kitchen/dining room with its sunlit location. My 'young' 95 year old mother was with us and she had no problems with access. Farmshops abound in the area and nearby Honiton has a lively high street with many small shops providing all one might need. We are already recommending Stable Cottage to friends and family for a luxuriously comfortable stay in this very serene and guest friendly environment. Wishing Sarah and Martin (and Ginny) all possible success with their new venture, and offering our grateful thanks for their kindness. John, Kay & Doreen
