  • Mrs W

    Absolutely stunning house on an equally beautiful estate. Stable cottage had everything we needed, plus more, for our Christmas stay. Both tennis court & hot tub were used, but the most impressive & enjoyable activity was riding the electric golf buggies around Watatunga Wildlife Reserve. We’d happily return to Stable Cottage @ Watatunga very soon, and hope to do so.

  • Mr G

    Great location and very comfortable and spacious cottage. We loved the access to the Reserve. A big bonus to our trip. Highly recommended.

  • The Stable Cottage

    Beautiful house and garden. Perfect.
