The Stables, a reverse level, newly renovated barn conversion is tucked away down a quiet lane in the pretty village of Slapton, not far from the sea. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and comfortable seating arranged around a cosy woodburner. A modern kitchen provides all the equipment needed for a relaxing holiday and downstairs there are three light and airy bedrooms.

The pretty village of Slapton is an ideal location guests who want to explore South Devon’s beautiful coast.  There are plenty of walks, the beach is less than a mile from the door and the friendly village has a couple of good pubs and a small village shop.  The interesting historical naval port of Dartmouth is a short drive away with Bohemian Totnes at the head of the Dartmouth estuary.  There are plenty of interesting market towns where you can spend a pleasant few hours as well and Dartmoor National Park is well worth a visit.  So bring the dog and pamper yourself in this well equipped holiday home.

Everything was perfect! Having a real xmas tree to a lovely log burner. Just perfect for a christmas break. The stables was spotless and lovely and warm. Tina and ian where lovely hosts. The tower inn was lovely and cosy with excellent food and service. We had a great stay and would return. Thanks

Had a good week apart from the uncomfortable bed.

A Visitors Book would have been useful to leave messages in for the owners and other guests - apart from that the accommodation and location are of a very high standard and a pleasure to visit.

August 2017

We enjoyed it very much and it was nice to be able to walk to the shop and pubs in the village rather than have to go by car. The accommodation is excellent and we really enjoyed it and would be happy to recommend it to family and friends.

the directions need to be amended as we could not find the cottage as you drive into the village you will see a property in front of you up a drive called Whitehaven on the left and you must take a sharp turn right where there is a property called (uplands ?) in front of you continue down this narrow road which bends to the left and you will see a double grey gate on the left open the gates and drive in to the stables

August 2017

The Stables exceeded our expectations. The cottage was of a very high standard equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts and everything from muffins, milk and dog treats upon arrival made it a real home from home. The added gift bag from Toad Hall cottages for our dog was a real treat. The village was lovely with two very good pubs and a short walk to the beach. We cannot wait to visit again.

Owners very helpful, told us lots of places to visit or not, a most wonderful holiday

June 2017

Had a lovely week. The Stables is comfortable no matter what the weather might throw at you. Sensible touches for walkers like tray to put your boots in and many places to hang coats. Easy walk to the pubs, the ley and the beach.
