The Stables

A perfectly converted former stable has been beautifully renovated to provide a gorgeous countryside retreat, overlooking the old apple orchard and woodland.

Every detail within this luxurious property has been carefully thought of to enhance your stay. You will love the rustic feel with exposed wooden beams and high vaulted ceilings but with a stunning modern twist! Chic vibrant fabrics and Moroccan style tiles offer a wonderful pop of colour to the property. Large welcoming Hypnos cashmere beds await, with a perfect star gazing window above you. There is also a fabulous fully fitted kitchen and a large open plan living-diner area with french doors out to your terrace.

If this wasn’t enough, you have access to The Firs spa facilities, a wood fired hot tub, relax by the pond and a sauna room. Perhaps you would like to enjoy an evening around the firepit BBQ in the comfort of your cottage.

Take a stroll through the 4 acres of gardens and woodland, picnic in the woods or stop by at the courtyard to cook and create homemade pizzas using the outdoor oven and seasonal ingredients from the kitchen garden. Whatever you choose to do here, you will have a fabulous stay.
