Great for family get away
Great property for family get away. Location wonderful for exploring North Devon, then back for a round of tennis whilst dinner cooking. Our children (all in their 30's) really enjoyed it.
A very happy Easter
We had a family vacation at the Stables over Easter.There was four families and we had plenty of room to have our own space as well as great spaces for us all to come together. The six bedrooms were excellent with most being en-suite. Nobody was unhappy with their rooms. The outside space was lovely with plenty of parking. The tennis court was great and we had our own version of Wimbledon. A great place to stay in an excellent location for visiting north Devon
New Year 2018
Three families getting together to celebrate New Year in style. The cottage is amazing, the kitchen is well equipped, the seating is plentiful and very comfortable and the dining table is enormous!
The 6 en-suite bedrooms were beautifully decorated, and it was a luxury for everyone to have their own bathroom. It is very rare to find enough en-suite bedrooms at a reasonable price. The only slight negative is that 3 of the bathrooms had baths with hand held shower attachments, rather than proper showers.
We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. There was even a cake and a bottle of wine to welcome us on arrival.
Hi Lorna, thank you very much for writing a lovely review for Stables, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back again one day. Please remember www.thestablesparkgate.co.uk or www.myfavouritecottages.co.uk Thanks Harry
Brilliant weekend away!
We had such a brilliant stay at stables cottage!! It is in such a great location, is well equipped and beautifully decorated! The owners are lovely too and were very accommodating.
A Beautiful house, in a beautiful area,
The house was perfect for our family, it was. clean and beautifully presented, with fresh flowers and tea coffee and wine provided, along with a delicious cake. Good sized bedrooms, lovely living areas, a great kitchen and dining room, where we enjoyed our evening meals each night. The local pub served amazing food, and fitted all 12 of us in with an hours notice. The house is easy to find and a perfect base to explore the beautiful villages, towns and beaches of north Devon. Would definitely recommend, and hope to book again for another family holiday.
Fabulous house and grounds, clean, well equipped
Great place to spend time with friends and family of all ages. Despite the inclement weather we still used the tennis courts and the games room was used by us all. Very spacious, with 12 of us and two dogs we all had the space we needed. Well equipped kitchen to cook as much or as little as you wish. Will definitely be coming back!
The Stables are beautifully located within the North Devon countryside just a few miles outside of the market town of Barnstaple. This ideally positioned house is within easy reach of the stunning coastline home to some of the country's best beaches, including Saunton Sands, Woolacombe, Croyde and Westward Ho!, as well as Exmoor National Park, which is less than a 30-minute drive from The Stables.
Barnstaple itself has several excellent places to eat and shop, both within its bustling high street and around the outskirts. Cedars Inn just a few miles from the house has a good restaurant and bar, as done the Chichester Arms in Bishops Tawton, which is easily reached. There are also several supermarkets, many of which will offer home delivery to The Stables.
Other notable places within easy reach and worth visiting, include Instow with its pretty esplanade and wonderful pubs, Appledore where you can wander the cobbled streets, Ilfracombe home to contemporary artist Damien Hirst's statue Verity and Lynton and Lynmouth where Exmoor meets the sea.
There are several attractions to suit all ages that are nearby, discover the world of dinosaurs at the Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, explore the rare animals on show at Exmoor Zoo, or have fun at the Milky Way where there are a range of both indoor and outdoor rides. Many of these attractions will offer discounts on tickets booked in advance, so it is well worth planning ahead. Alternative, less child friendly attractions include Arlington Court, RHS Rosemoor and Broomhill Sculpture Gardens.
