    Mrs Clarke ‐ 1 Feb 2019
    "Kids enjoyed the huge garden and adults enjoyed the bar! The dynamics of the house worked extremely well with central kitchen, big dining room table, lounge and separate bar area and also good sized bedrooms and bathrooms."
    Pauline R ‐ 1 Oct 2018
    "Good value for money for a large family weekend stay with small dog. Well laid out and lots of space for everyone. There were 10 of us, but we needed the 7 bedrooms for our family dynamic. The house was very well equipped and included some of the kitchen things you usually have to bring, such as dishwasher tablets/washing up liquid/spices etc, and seemed to have every appliance you might want. Owner met us on arrival and showed us around. Very friendly and helpful, even let us in early ..."

    "Its a very warm, relaxing, well-appointed home that feels nicely lived in and not too precious. The house and gardens are spacious, full of interesting nooks and crannies and there always seems to be an area that is sheltered and in the sun. We particularly enjoyed the wee barbecue house and the hot tub - which was well used! Although there were one or two issues with the plumbing at the beginning, our hosts, Chris and June, went out of their way to get them sorted, so there was never any real inconvenience. Chris and June were very friendly and helpful throughout. The location is very convenient with local amenities nearby and very much in the center of many interesting things to do and see. As it worked so well for us, we will certainly be considering Stonegables for another family get together."
