Stables Lodge Testimonials:
"What our Leisure Visitors say

My family and I have stayed at the Stables on a number of occasions and always enjoyed it and had a lovely friendly welcome from Jane and the team. When we heard the Penthouse was complete we were kean to try it. It is really lovely accommodation and we had a perfect time. The space is great, having a large lounge area and separate large dining area with a large table and chairs is home from home. Everything is so clean and tidy and the attention to detail is something that stands out every time we stay at the Stables. The bedroom is very large and has a large flat screen tv which was very enjoyable. The kitchen is perfectly kitted out and all lovely and new and to a high standard and again with everything you could need from tea towels to dishwasher tablets and from doggie treats to dog towels and bowls!

Another benefit of the Penthouse is the large balcony with outdoor furniture and lighting which is great at night and overlooks all the fields which is very peaceful. As an extra benefit we were surprised that it has its own large and private garden which is very well looked after and has all the garden furniture you could need including patio heaters! We didn’t want to leave and will definitely be back to spend longer next time and bring our friends!

I am writing to let you know that we had the most wonderful family weekend Testimonialgathering at the stables lodge complimented by great weather and the most fabulous hosts and accommodation. All of the family have commented on what a most fantastic place you have. You also have everything spot on - nothing was amiss and you also had the extra touches that nowhere else we have stayed at has thought of. I can tell you that the search for our next reunion gathering has already ended and we will all definitely return - If you will let us!

Great to meet you both and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

I booked this stay for my husbands birthday and found that it’s amazing, welcome, fantastic stay, brilliant and the lodge was so comfy, clean and relaxing. Would recommend to friends and family. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Brereton, April 2011


Driving up to the Stables Lodge my first impressions were this is breathtaking! We were pleasantly greeted by a lady who showed us to our stable. She took the time to explain the stables facilities – I must say the accommodation was lovely, spotless and welcoming. We look forward to coming again soon.

Mr and Mrs Cunningham and toddler, April 2011


Lovely place to stay. Good for driving to interesting places from here. Brilliant garden area with BBQ facilities. We had a brilliant time here and accommodation and location perfect!

Church, April 2011


Very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The two lodges were perfect for our family night away. Outside space fab too! Hope to return soon. Many Thanks.

Lucy Greenwood, April 2011


We travelled down from Scotland to go to Alton Towers and the area for a weekend. The location is superb for getting anywhere and very easy to find. The accommodation itself is superb, clean, comfy, homely and stylish. We loved it and were made very welcome by the owners. Would highly recommend Stable Lodge to anyone. Thanks for making our trip so enjoyable.

Erin Speirs and Stephen Anderson, April 2011


Fantastic 4 night stay. Extremely clean in a beautiful tranquil and safe location. Our 5 year old son had a great time in the grassy area beside our lodge with great views. Lodges are very modern and everything has been thought of even down to the complimentary milk, tea etc available on arrival before going to the shops. Sad to leave but can’t wait to come back. All the best. Also we loved using the BBQ facilities.

Darren, Julie and Logan Perrie, April 2011


Wonderful lodges! Extremely well presented – and you surpass “Hoseasons” for friendliness. Thank you for all the “Courtesy” items – down to milk and hand wash/shower gel! WOW!! Despite the rain – we really enjoyed our stay.

Susan Preston, April 2011


We were particularly impressed with the cleanliness, spot less towels, plenty of them and excellent quality. Having simple items like washing up liquid, dish cloth and tea towel already here helps so much. All in all we can’t complain about a thing and would certainly recommend to others. Thank you very much.

Mr David Owen, April 2011


A most fantastic place to stay. Never have we ever stayed in such an organised place, the lodge contains everything we possible need. The staff are friendly and very welcoming towards adults and children alike. We will most certainly return. Thank you so much.

Donna, Howard, April 2011


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and support in the run up to Fran’s surprise party. You were absolutely amazing and the venue was perfect.

I also wanted you to know that we found the accommodation absolutely wonderful, it was really well equipped, a true home from home.

Laura Brown, March 2011


I just wanted to thank you for a lovely stay at Lodge 1 this weekend. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a pen with me so I couldn’t fill in your feedback form so I thought I would email!

We all really enjoyed our stay. The Lodge was fantastic, had everything we could have needed and is perfectly located for wonderful walks. We can’t wait to stay again but next time would love to bring more people so we can share your facilities with our family and friends.

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Tamsin Baldwin, March 2011


Wow! We stayed mid January and it was fantastic. Really clean and tidy. The Lodge was just as described and pictured it was perfect! Very friendly welcome and lovely people. We have had a fantastic time. Thank you very much. We shall be returning again soon. Thanks again.

Lynnie Shaw and Adam Testo, January 2011


Very warm welcome upon arrival. The lodges are very clean, everything catered for. The children are able to play safe and then relax with a DVD. Would recommend the friends and family. Excellent value for money. Will come again.

Jane, Andrew, Abigail, Emily and George. August 2010


What a fabulous place. Extremely well equipped and perfect if you have children. You have thought of everything. Would definitely return. Wishing you every success with your venture!! 10/10

Good location, lovely accommodation. Ideal for families with small children. Shame we could only stay for only one night. Couldn’t fault anything. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Darren Evans. August 2010


Thank you for making our first holiday with Charlie (5½ mths) so easy and relaxing. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your lodges are fantastic and you have provided everything we could need. We will be telling all our friends about our stay. We hope to return soon.

Vikki, Rob, Charlie and Zak (Hird). August 2010


We’ve had a wonderful stay. The hospitality shown by yourselves, with a bottle of wine for our Anniversary, showing us around the lodge, the utmost cleanliness of the lodges which are to the highest quality. The modern, comfortable furniture and equipment provided was such a benefit to our stay. This was the best accommodation we have stayed in and we will return, and recommend all family and friends. (a really caring and hard-working family business – well done, best wishes).

Mr & Mrs Rita/Neil Cater. July 2010


Your accommodation is so lovely and it shows that you obviously paid a lot of attention to detail and that all your hard work has paid off. We will be coming back and will also recommend it to our friends and family. In our opinion - 5 star.

Pat Sly. July 2010


THANK YOU, THANK YOU again for accommodating us, particularly for letting us stay in the communal room later. It meant we could eat the wealth of food that had accumulated, your flexibility really made a difference. We once again had a fantastic time and I rave to anyone who will listen about your team and Stables Lodge. We had a wonderful time and it is just the perfect venue for us, topped off by the beautiful accommodation and how welcoming you all are. With 2 babies on the way in the family I hope we wont expand beyond your space as we love coming to stay.

Thanks again for enabling us to come together and have a great time. Take care and all the best.

Clare and Family. July 2010


Second year – Still as good! Had a great time. Love the lodge, such a high standard. Staff so helpful. See you next year.

Jan and Kenny Blaikie. June 2010


We visited the Stables Lodge to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was the best weekend ever. Jane and her team couldn’t do enough for us. Their attention to detail and the high quality and standards of the lodges are 5 star. We would definitely visit again and would recommend it for anyone looking for a short break away or a business meeting to impress your clients.

Rebecca Kooner. May 2010


Thank you so much! We had a fantastic time and will definitely be back again soon. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided including cot, baby bath and high chair, which we really appreciated. The accommodation, linen and everything in the Stable Lodges was spotlessly clean. We will be recommending you to friends, family and colleagues.

Conrad, Alex and Violet Whitcher. May 2010


We came to Stables Lodge in need of some serious relaxation. We are please to say that the first class accommodation, superb location together with fantastic service has left us leaving relaxed, refreshed and feeling like a new couple. Many Thanks.

Jim and Gayle Nicholls. December 2009


Excellent – Thank You. The friendliest and helpful ‘Meet and Greet’. Great location, peaceful, quiet and yet so close to M1 etc. Spotlessly clean, great facilities. The most comfortable beds – beautiful linen. Shame we could only stay one night. And excellent take-away delivered curry on your recommendation. Will definitely recommend you. You are very welcome to include this on your website.

Pamela, Canterbury, Kent. November 2009.


Thank you for the lovely accommodation at Stables Lodge. We feel so lucky to have found you on the net just the week before we came. It was just what we needed for two families visiting Alton Towers in half term. Easy to find, clean, modern, plenty of parking and even out-door space for footie. Hope to visit again sometime. Best wishes, for lots more bookings.

Only suggestion – a map of a local walk, say circular to and from Stables Lodge to nearest village.

Elaine Welford. October 2009


Thank you Stables Lodge!

"We had a wonderful stay at Stables Lodge. I honestly thought it was too good to be true. When I found it on the internet it seemed great and the value for money was so good. The support and friendliness from Jane the entire time from enquiry to saying goodbye was brilliant and she was always willing to help, change things, clarify details and do anything to accommodate us. With a booking for 30 people I was so worried it would be disappointing. However, we had the best weekend. Tim made every effort to welcome us when we arrived late and went through the lodges bit by bit and advised us of local amenities.

The lodges are super clean, super modern and The Stables Lodge have thought of everything, food, basic toiletries like shower gel and soap, ironing board etc. It was truly fully equipped. We all agreed that we wished we lived there! Comfortable lodges ideal for a short stay with lots of family members or a long stay for couples. We had 20 adults and 18 children and we made use of the grass for the weekend and at night had a BBQ and a few drinks (and games!) on the porch. Jane was so flexible and her team made sure we wanted for nothing.

We were muttering all weekend about who we could come back with and have now booked another weekend next year. The place was ideal for what we needed and we cannot give it enough praise. Considering what you pay in some questionable hotels this is great value. The beautiful converted stables, well kept grounds and setting are outstanding.

So thank you, thank you, thank you!’

Dear Jane,

Just a belated thank you for such wonderful accommodation you have at Stables Lodge.

Everything was so clean and we had everything we needed. You have obviously thought of everything.

We left early on Saturday morning as we needed to be at Ponds Forge by 7.30am for warm up!

We had an excellent time and James had some really good swims. On Saturday he managed to get in the 100m butterfly final and came 6th which means he is the 6th fastest 11 year old in the whole of the country for 100m butterfly. So all in all a good week.

We would definitely recommend your accommodation to our friends and if we are ever in the area for an Alton Towers visit we will definitely use Stables Lodge.




Hi all at the Stables,

Just wanted to let you know that our stay at Stables Lodge was fantasic. We
visited at the weekend and the accommodation and grounds were absolutely
perfect! All the essentials were there for us, even breakfast, and the sun
shone for the whole of our stay, so we couldn't have asked for more. I will
definitely be recommending Stables Lodge to friends and family, and will
hopefully be visiting again soon.

Thanks again
