What Our Guests Say

We have just returned from a wonderful post-lock-down stay at The Stables Manor Farm and enjoyed every minute. Pip had done everything possible to allay any concerns about holidaying at this difficult time.  Our check-in was contactless with all arrangements made prior to our arrival, making for a stress free start to our break. Hand gel was left outside the cottage with advice to sanitise each time we entered - minimising the risk for cleaning staff and future  guests. The accommodation, which was lovely, was spotlessly clean and we had instructions on how to leave things on our departure to keep everyone safe.

I can not recommend this part of the country enough- beautiful countryside with fabulous walking and cycling. Stonehenge and Highclere Castle were open and a pleasure to visit.  There is so much to do nearby making this a perfect base from which to explore.” KB July 2020
