“Lovely stay for young family of 4”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2018

Great accommodation for our family of 4. Living space was perfect and bedrooms worked well with two young children. Perfect base for us, great location to explore the Jurassic coast. Owners were brilliant, super friendly and welcoming.

“Warm, comfortable and ideal”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2018

This cottage in the village of Chideock , is ideally based for exploring the area around Lyme Regis. We enjoyed the10 - 15 minutes walk to and along the beach at Seatown and a refreshing drink afterwards at the Anchor pub! The accommodation has everything you need, is comfortable and warm. This matched the welcome on arrival from Carroll and friendly chat as we left. Loved it; we'll be back

Owner's reply: Thank you both for coming and enjoying this lovely part of the country. It is always nice to see people make the most of their stay - and I am back jogging to the beach a back having been inspired by your guest! You will be welcome back anytime. Thanks again for your custom.

“Comfortable and nicely arranged cottage”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2017

We had a lovely summer holiday with our daughter at this awesome cottage. The house has everything you need for a comfortable and quiet recreation. Carroll and Simon are very kind hosts. The landscape of this region is superb. Nice footwalk to the coastline. Make good cheer at the local pubs and don‘t miss a nice dinner and good drink at The Anchor Inn at Seatown. Die beste Ferienwohnung, die wir je hatten! Eine großzügige und gemütliche Unterkunft, die liebevoll eingerichtet ist und nichts zu wünschen übrig lässt. Die Unterkunft ist in einer komfortablen Lage, um Ausflüge in die landschaftlich tolle Region zu machen oder einen entspannten Spaziergang an den schönen Strand zu unternehmen. Die Gastgeber, Carroll und Simon sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Owner's reply: Thank you Stefan and Sabine for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you managed to share our joy of all the eateries and walks in the area! You are most welcome to return whenever you are in the UK. If it is not too early to say so then we hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year! Carroll and Simon

“Lovely cottage hideaway”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2017

The Stable cottage is a great starting point for your venture into Dorset. Well situated and only minutes from Bridport and the Jurassic Coast. Dorchester is a short drive away,a lovely town with cinemas etc. Places like Lulworth Cove are not far away,most places are within an hours drive. The cottage itself is fully modern refurbished property and was a joy to stay in. AThe owners are very friendly and on hand to help with any problems that may arise. Ideal for a family or a group of friends to stay in or a great base for any walkers to unwind in after the punishing coastal works. Chideock is a small village that has a couple pubs/restaurants and a tea room,what else do you need? Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your custom! We are thrilled you had a good time and that you clearly made the most of your stay and explored the county for all the wonderful treats and sights it has to offer. We would be pleased to have back anytime. Thanks again for choosing Stable Cottage.


Reviewed 15 Feb 2017

We have just returned from a week in Stable Cottage and can highly recommend it for its comfort, warmth and accessibility to the coast. We were warmly welcomed by Carroll the owner who had thoughtfully supplied us with extras like chocolates,wine and flowers.A nice touch.After a brief explanation of the working of the property,we were left to unpack and despite the owner's proximity to the cottage,we never felt watched over the whole week. It is well kitted out with very comfortable,large beds,and a strong shower over the bath.A good seating area upstairs overlooked the stunning countryside . Should you require an extra bedroom for a third couple,there is a tack room attached though there is no internal door connecting but is literally a few steps away so wouldn't be a problem.I believe there is a small extra charge for this. The coast at Sea town is a pleasant 15 minute walk down a quiet country lane and there is a pub,The Anchor,overlooking the sea.It was very busy when we visited and booking for a meal is advisable. In the village are two other pubs.Both very friendly serving decent food.Be warned;the George does very large portion s!We didn't eat at the Clock but the menu looked good. A short drive away is Charmouth and Lyme Regis. We would be very happy to return there next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to provide such comprehensive feedback Yvonne - we really appreciate it. We are thrilled you had a good time and that you managed to visit so many places (and pubs) on your visit. Thank you for booking Stable Cottage - we would be pleased to welcome you back. All the best, Carroll and Simon

“In need of some TLC and a good clean.”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2016

We really enjoyed the local area and there are some great places to visit. After previously holidaying in caravans and chalet's we thought we'd try somewhere a bit different. This location looked fantastic in the pictures and building itself is full of charm. However we found the grounds cramped, with the business on the doorstep. While the building had a damp smell which we struggled to mask, on leaving I checked under the beds for any left items. The bottom of both beds were covered in mold. Neither the beds nor the sofa upstairs were as comfortable as they looked and we were quite relieved to be leaving at the end of our stay.

Owner's reply: Dear Steve, Thank you for your comments which we are investigating and where appropriate we will action the changes required of the sofa and beds. Unfortunately we cannot do anything regarding outside space given we live and work on site - I will check our details though as I thought this was clear - we appreciate it doesn't suit everyone and particularly guests with young children staying for nearly two weeks. We will be sure to stress this in future listings to avoid others bring disappointed in the future. While there is little I can do regarding the mould and damp smells due to your stay being some five months ago, we will alert the cleaning company of this. Thank you again for your comments as it helps keep us informed of changes required and therefore to improve. Regards, Mr & Mrs Lloyd
