Visitors Book - Complete and unedited since the Old Stables started in May 2007



Very cute accommodation just outside of Cardiff. Sarah and her husband have evidently restored the stable with a huge amount of care and attention. The kitchen has all the necessary amenities and the living space is good to relax in. They were great with communication and taking us through everything on arrival. It's close to Cardiff by car.

Thank you for having us. The Old Stables are really beautiful and we had a lovely stay. 


Samantha, Canada

We loved staying in Sarah's beautiful, thoughtfully renovated Stable. Perfect space for two adult travellers, and in a fantastic location. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the historic town of Cowbridge. Thanks for a great stay.

Julien and Nicholas, Cannes, France

We have enjoyed the last 2 weeks in this lovely house which was quiet and perfect for us to study for our final exam to become commercial pilots. We had a great stay here and will be sure to recommend it to anyone who wishes to visit Wales.



A nice characterful converted stable which was very comfortable. I liked the use of the old Welsh slate in the kitchen. The shower was super. Cowbridge is a lovely little town with lots to offer and the surrounding countryside and villages are beautiful. I have another favourite place to visit and Sarah's place is perfectly located, clean and comfortable. Thank You

A lovely welcome from Sarah and Martin. Cowbridge is an excellent base to explore the Vale of Glamorgan + Cardiff. St Fagans (Folk Museum) is a must as is Castell Coch. The Bear (Cowbridge) serves a good meal, however we were very impressed with the Bryn Owain (on the main road to Cardiff). Physic garden in Cowbridge is worth a visit - the staff at the library are very helpful. Cottage is clean and comfortable.

Another 2 weeks at the Stables, and just as wonderful as we remembered. Weather was great most of the time, and when it wasn't the 24 inch walls kept the heat in.

 Cowbridge gets better dinning again -Oscars is a fun, organic restaurant and Hudart's is excellent. Arboreal is also great, try the flatbread pizzas, and the BaltiHouse at the other end of town has a good indian.

 Thanks Sarah and Martin

Despite spending the week house-hunting, managed to discover Southerndown – fantastic sandy beach and cliff-top walks. An absolute must whilst you are here. Feeling rather smug because we will be living here really, really soon.01/08/2007
