If you like a quality converted building, amazing views plus peace and quiet, this property comes highly recommended. The Old Stables is has been furnished to a high standard, is light (due to the generous number of huge windows), warm and comfortable, and is blessed with wonderful views all the way across to Dartmoor. Andrew and Jan were super hosts, very helpful but at a distance. It is one of the best self catering places we have stayed in.

Lovely location and accommodation. Andrew and Jan very welcoming and informative of the area.
Mrs Jeffrey-Hofman July 2023
This is a very comfortable, spacious and light property with stunning views and plenty of peace and quiet. The owners are very helpful and welcoming.

A high spec conversion of an old stable block with views across to Dartmoor and walks to the coast, this holiday accommodation suited us perfectly. Add to this, welcoming and thoughtful hosts and we couldn’t have asked for more. Andrew and Janice were on hand to offer tips and advice on local routes, pubs and eating places and whilst we sampled most, we look forward to exploring further on future visits. Definitely a place to return to.

A really lovely property in a picturesque spot with fab views.

Mr Reeve September 2020
Classic Cottages have many lovely cottages on the site and The Stables must rank as one of the very best. The accommodation is exceptional, the views very good and the garden lovely. We absolutely loved the Jo Downs mirror in the bathroom. Andrew & Jan are very friendly and welcoming and there if they are needed to give advice re The Stables or on places to visit, walks etc. We thoroughly recommend The Stables and hopefully will spend another holiday there at some future date.
Mr Horner September 2020
We loved staying at The Old Stable’s, it’s certainly in our top two of self catering cottages, with the safety and security of visiting quests taken seriously in the cleanliness and COVID precautions that could not be faulted An excellent cottage with quality fixtures and fittings, designed with every comfort in mind. Lovely landscaped gardens with good seating areas in many locations. The friendly hosts had provided good information on the local area, with walking maps and routes direct from the cottage and further afield.
Mr Sandell August 2020
We enjoyed our stay at the Old Stables. It was so socially distant the nearest neighbour was half a mile away!! The owners gave us access to the vegetable garden and greenhouse produce, as vegetarians this was greatly appreciated. The decor was completed to a very high standard and we appreciated the spaciousness created by the vaulted ceilings. The owners were very conscientious about our safety and this was very valued. The bedding was superb. The duvet was specially constructed so that each visitor had a fresh one. Underfloor heating ensured that constant temperatures were maintained. the southwest facing back patio was a joy to return home to.
Mr Arterton August 2020
An excellent cottage in a wonderfully quiet location, with superb hosts.

Mrs Pettinger July 2020
This property is one of the very best and most luxurious Classic Cottages we have stayed in. We had a really wonderful (and safe!) holiday after months of isolation in lockdown. The Stables is situated in the very best position - incredibly close to the coast for many lovely clifftop walks - and a fabulous view of Dartmoor from the property itself, with breathtaking moorland walks within easy reach. Very friendly and helpful owners. Superb!
Mrs Rogers September 2019
We have just returned from a fantastic week away in Devon - even the autumnal rain did not dent our enjoyment thanks to our stay in this well thought out barn conversion with all the mod cons including under floor heating and a fantastic shower. We appreciated the welcoming and thoughtful touches of the owners who live close by. The rolling hills from our holiday home windows, including the starry night sky will live long in our memory."
Ms Mckinley August 2019
