  • I stayed at the Red stables for a week and we did not want to go home. The place is so quiet and peaceful. The converted stable has been beautifully designed with gorgeous bedding and rugs, and with every amenity you possibly need for a self catering rental. Beautiful touches with lighting outside and on the inside with remote lighting. We loved the under floor heating ! Which is great when coming in from the Amazing Hot TUB. We feel like we got such luxury for our money. We will be returning next year for sure !!! Do not hesitate to book!
