Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your holiday at The Stables. It is lovely to hear that you had a lovely time and will take back lovely memories from your stay. It is also good to hear of any comments that could further improve your holiday and so we have now added extra storage space/drawers to the second bedroom. We would love to welcome you back another time. Thank you. Sam
