We had a great week in Stable Cottage. It is perfectly located in the centre of Kington, yet nicely tucked away up a lane with a high wall preventing doggy disappearances and giving lots of privacy.
This characterful cottage is tastefully decorated, very well-equipped, and apart from a human welcome pack of fruit juice and home-made marmalade, the owners even provided a packet of doggy treats. Usually when we visit a cottage we have to remember to buy stuff like foil and washing up liquid and liquid soap but everything was there.
The big bed was super comfortable and bathroom was stylish although when showering it was difficult to keep the water in the bath as no shower curtain (and bathroom blind had to be kept down as large window didn't have obscure glass.
There were a couple of minor points that could make things even better - a couple of hooks for outside coats by the door, maybe a DVD player for nights at home, a blackout blind for the big bedroom, an outside bench for the lovely little courtyard - but there are so many positives and Kington is such a great place to stay, being packed full of lovely old-fashioned shops and cafes and pubs.
We loved the local Arrow beer in the Wine Vaults and you should definitely enjoy Pie and Ale Night on Wednesday in the Oxford Arms. And the wonderful preserved interior of the Olde Tavern - we do love a traditional pub and Kington had plenty.
We had a super-relaxing time and would love to visit again sometime and would definitely choose to stay in this lovely cottage.
