On arrival to Milton Stable I knew we were in for a relaxing and comfort holiday. Location was within easy reach of the beach, local shop, several cafes and numerous excellent dog walks. The accommodation was spacious and extremely well equipped. Our week at Milton Stables was so good we know we will be back sometime soon.

Great little cottage in a great location. The driveway is a bit tricky and we couldn't fit our car on it due to the angle of the entrance, a small car would be fine, but we knew this from the description before we booked. Very clean cottage and nice touches when you arrive such as fresh flowers and scones with jam and cream waiting for you. Really Read morewell equipped, had everything we needed. A few minutes walk down to Freshwater Bay and easy access to the Military Road. Highly recommended Hide
