Mr Wright June 2021
The Old Stables is a well done conversion with lots of space and stunning views to Dartmoor and beautiful gardens (the roses were spectacular!). Great walks to the coast from the door and we enjoyed a fabulous walk along the River Dart. The owners, Andrew and Jan were most helpful. We had a super holiday.
Mrs Ryan June 2021
Superb conversion of The Old Stables. Everything you could need with top quality furnishings and fittings. The garden is peaceful, has several seating areas to either enjoy the sun or sit in the shade and the views over Dartmoor are fabulous. Andrew and Jan are the most hospitable owners who are on hand if you need any information on the area.
We liked it so much we have booked again for next year.
Mrs Preece June 2021
The Old Stables is a superb property. It is in a rural, remote and peaceful spot with beautiful views yet only a short distance from beaches, villages and towns. If you are looking for peace and tranquility you will find it here!
Mr Hyde April 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Old Stables, extremely comfortable and stylish inside and a beautiful garden outside. And, whatever the weather, what glorious views! Thanks Andrew and Jan for creating such a wonderful place and for your invaluable insight on great walks and spots to explore too.

Everything superb. Quality of accommodation and welcome of hosts can not be faulted
Mrs Bauder October 2020
A really lovely property in a picturesque spot with fab views. Andrew & Janice were there to greet us on arrival and gave us suggestions during the week for walks in the area and also apples from their orchard. All in all a delightful week. We’ve stayed in many Classic properties and this was certainly one of the best.
Mr Mitchell September 2020
This was probably the most well appointed, clean and beautiful cottages i have ever stayed in. I cannot fault it, the views were stunning, it was well located, it was clean and fully equipped and everything worked perfectly. A wonderful relaxing place with a peaceful atmosphere
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
Andrew and Jan were extremely friendly and helpful and the property was ideally placed to explore the south west coast path. Would highly recommend for anybody looking for a peaceful break in beautiful surroundings.
Mrs Godsell June 2019

The owners had clearly endeavoured to make this holiday home very special, with great flare and attention to detail.We can honestly say that it is the most luxurious and comfortable holiday let that we have ever stayed in, and would hope to return. Set in beautiful surroundings and very peaceful - a perfect place to recharge the batteries.There are plenty of lovely places to visit within the S.Hams. The owners made us feel most welcome and were most anxious to attend to our needs.
Mrs Whiting April 2019
The Old Stables has been lovingly converted into a comfortable, modern yet homely self catering let with beautiful views. There are some lovely walks on the doorstep and a pub with great food just over a mile or so away. Janice and Andrew are the perfect hosts. Very welcoming and helpful with useful tips on places to see, walking routes and eateries. Nothing is too much trouble and Tilly, their spaniel, was adorable. We had a wonderful, relaxing break and definitely hope to return In the future.
