The Little Stable

At the edge of the picturesque village of East Coker, just over the Dorset Border, The Little Stable is a beautiful conversion and perfect little hideaway for 2.

We chose Flo’s Cottages to have a peaceful retreat after the Christmas madness and that’s exactly what we got. The location is perfect for gentle strolls in the country and the accommodation offers everything you need for a relaxing short stay. The welcome basket was... well... very welcome, the pool was fantastic(!) and the bed was particularly comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful break.

Fiona’s place is awesome for a little getaway, it’s very clean and comfortable with a great setting. Fiona is very friendly and always there for any help required whilst at her cottage.

Mr P Dec 2017

Fiona ,was a very polite and attentive host without being in the least imposing. The little Stable was exactly what it said on the tin 😁 whilst being very comfortable. Outstanding welcome pack. The swimming pool excellent, all in all a most enjoyable stay, will be definitely back ,very soon.

Great hideaway for anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet. Love the set up - small but brilliantly laid out, so it was just the right size for two and felt cosy - especially with the underfloor heating! Some great places to visit but recommend West Bay - great seafood restaurant as recommended by Fiona's handbook for the area, and the walk down the Jurassic Coast was fantastic. Fiona was of course a perfect and friendly host, and the rooms were well furnished and like new - will be back again soon!

Mr R Oct. 2017

What a fantastic place to spend a few days! Lovely and quiet, really picturesque and scenic. Would love to return. Absolutely would recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet getaway. Thanks for letting us stay!

Mr M Oct. 2017

Amazing hospitality by Fiona and her husband. Beautiful place just perfect for a getaway. Thoughtful and generous little touches. Very rural gorgeous location. Pool was wonderful! Would thoroughly recommend to all!

Miss H Oct. 2017

Fiona’s place is just as beautiful as in the pictures. All the white company toiletries make it a very luxurious place to stay! Thanks

Mrs C Oct. 2017

The small stable really is as beautiful in real life as it is in the pictures! The pool is a great addition for a daily swim! Fiona was very friendly and helpful providing lots of local knowledge to make our stay even more enjoyable! Would highly recommend for a relaxing get away!

Mrs K Sept. 2017

We had a wonderful short break, Fiona made us feel incredibly welcome and at ease in her beautifully converted barn. Milk in the fridge and biscuits were just what we needed on arrival after a long journey.

What a lovely place, very quiet and private... loved every second everything about the place is perfect !! Hope to go back some time

Mr B Sept. 2017

A very nice stable conversion, very comfortable and use of a lovely indoor heated pool . Great village with lots of interesting history

Mrs W Sept. 2017

Would highly recommend Fiona's place. It is even better than it looks in the pictures, the attention to detail makes it very worthwhile. Just overall had a lovely stay. Clean, friendly, and cozy.

Miss O Sept. 2017

We had a great time at Flo's cottages. Loved the walks nearby especially the East Coker cafe. The pool area is excellent just like everything else. We stayed in the Little Stable which had all we needed with great neighbours of the chickens, ducks & geese. Definitely somewhere we would visit again.

Mr H Aug 2017

Good location, close to 'civilisation' (Yeovil) but a quiet spot in the country with lots of walks in the vicinity and a short drive away (plus coastal walks with West Bay only 40 mins away). Enjoyed the pool which was lovely. The chickens and the pairs of ducks and geese were also very entertaining. Fiona was very attentive despite being away at the time. Highly recommended!

Mr C Aug 2017

Perfect location and place to stay. The facilities were amazing and the recommendation for local things to do made the stay really easy and enjoyable. Would highly recommend

Mr H Aug 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Little Stable! Such a peaceful area but not too far from plenty of fun things to do! The accommodation is immaculately clean and very comfortable, with lovely attention to detail. It was a well needed break and the indoor pool was fantastic! The host Fiona is really helpful and lovely and we hope you will have us back in the future as it's one of our favourite breaks away to date!!!

Miss D Aug 2017

Small but perfectly formed, this is a lovely place to stay. Very peaceful, with the chickens, duck and geese outside and set in beautiful countryside. We didn't try the swimming pool but it looked great. The Stable is very well designed, giving every comfort but is a small and cosy space. We just loved this place and will come back.

Mrs M August 2017

The little stable at east Coker was the perfect getaway for us. We wanted somewhere homely from which to explore and that's exactly what we got. It's small but perfectly formed with a fully fitted kitchen, lovely wet room, a sofa area to relax in and a comfortable bed on the mezzanine level but what we most enjoyed was sitting out on the private patio watching the chicken ducks and geese waddle around, we even had fresh eggs for breakfast. The swimming pool was a real luxury, lovely and warm perfect for a few lengths or just floating about. Fiona was the perfect host, we only wish we could have stayed longer.

Miss J July 2017

Fiona's place is beautiful, and a great place to stay if you're looking for a relaxing get away. We could not fault this place in any way, we only stayed for 2 nights but could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend.

Miss H July 2017

Really well appointed and well equipped cottage with everything needed for a short break. Loved the welcome tray with local goodies - useful and thoughtful.

Mr J July 2017

If you are looking for a clean, homely, all mod-con place to say and enjoy a piece of paradise in the Somerset countryside, look no further. Fiona and her family were super friendly and made my stay truly something to remember. I can only recommend the Little Stable!

Mr B July 2017

Really enjoyed our short stay at Flo's Cottages. Very comfortable, well equipped and perfect location to explore Somerset and the Dorset coast.

Mrs P July 2017

We can't wait to book again, and loved everything about our stay. The location is beautiful, the cottage is very comfortable and stylish -- had everything we needed. Communication with the property manager was very pleasant and always easy.  Thoroughly enjoyed!! Thank you

Mr T July 2017

If you want to stay in a beautiful place incorporating comfort, luxury, pool and peace this is the place for you. Fiona the host is helpful and friendly and there are no end of stunning views and pretty villages to visit.

Mrs A June 2017

Fiona was a great host, very laid back but attentive to our needs. Hospitality was great and the room had everything we needed. The pool was a lovely touch to a very relaxing rural weekend. Having a car is recommended to make the most of your stay. Overall, a very pleasing and positive experience.

Mr O June 2017

Had a brilliant stay, wish we could've stayed for longer to use the pool too! Easy to find, and self check in made it really simple to settle in straight away. Fiona had left us some loca cider, milk, pear juice, cookies etc which was a really nice touch after our long journey! (Tip: buy some of the eggs that Fiona and Jason sell at the front of the house - delicious and can't get fresher!!!) Kitchen had everything you could need during a stay and there was even a BBQ which we made the most of in this nice weather! The bathroom had toiletries (very nice white company ones!!) and towels included which was handy. We met Fiona and Jason during the stay (as well as their gorgeous dog wandering the grounds!) and they were lovely and friendly and great at replying to messages quickly. In a beautiful scenic secluded area, but only a short drive to Yeovil town. We took a trip to Weymouth beach too which was lovely Wish we could've stayed longer!! Thanks for having us.

Miss Y June 2017

We've just had a fab long weekend here , we are both relaxed and chilled out , loved waking up to the chickens and the geese ..... the fresh eggs were delicious for breakfast . Thank you Fiona and Jason for a warm welcome and comfortable stay .......

Mr B June 2017

Hello Fiona We much enjoyed our short stay in the Little Stable. It is so well appointed and thoughtfully designed. We certainly hope to come again. Thank you

Mr T June 2017

The little stable was beautiful, it had everything needed for a perfect weekend! we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you so much!

Miss S May 2017

Thank you for such a lovely weekend!  The Little Stable is beautiful and the chickens and geese have been great company!  We look forward to coming back soon!

Miss S May 2017

The Little Stable is a perfect house for couples. Very nice atmosphere in the middle of the country side. The apartment was very cosy and Fiona gave us fantastic welcome treats such us lemon cake and wine. We will definitely come back :)

Miss C Apr. 2017

Fiona's place was so beautiful and homely. I genuinely felt at home and that I could live there. It's in a lovely area with gorgeous views and fields for walks but it's also still close enough to walk into the local town so you get the best of both worlds. The geese and the chickens are so cute and you could watch them for hours. The place in general is exactly like the photos and beautifully decorated. Lovely touches and a delicious home made lemon cake and a bottle of wine to greet us with were beyond welcoming. Would recommend to anyone staying especially if you are seeking some downtime from the city life. I would definitely return! Thank you.

Miss C Dec. 2016

The apartment was lovely. The view was nice. The apparement had complimentary cereal, eggs and cider. Nespresso machine was also present :) I never got to meet the host due to my arrival time, however communication was perfect. Fiona allowed us to have a late checkout which so nice, I would defiantly reccomend this property to others. If I needed to go back to Yoveil I would stay here again 100%

Miss S Dec. 2016

This Airbnb experience was our first, and based on a fantastic experience it certainly will not be our last. Exceptional hospitality and a very friendly and helpful host. Flo's cottages are in a great rural location and have fabulous facilities which are extremely well presented and tidy. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas but we could of spent all day watching the farm animals to be honest!

Miss W Oct. 2016

Everything you could want for a wonderful stay in Dorset. All the little touches were just lovely - wine, cake, breakfast cereals, eggs from the chickens that then roam in front of your door all day along with two lovely white geese. Just idyllic. A lovely area and we recommend heading over to West Bay and visiting the superb Hive Beach cafe (amazing food and breathtaking scenery) and River Cottage for a great Friday night dining experience. 

Miss K Oct. 2016

We had a lovely, relaxing and peaceful stay at Flo's cottages. We stayed in the 'Little 'Stable' which was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The grounds were lovely and having the chickens and geese just outside our door really made our stay more enjoyable. We would highly recommend this cottage stay to anyone looking for a relaxing break away in the country.

Mr T. Aug 2016

I cannot recommend staying at the Little Stable enough. Fiona,Jason and their family were more than accommodating and it was a privilege to meet them and get to know them. The photos simply do not do justice to how stunning this place really is, not only is the place beautiful, but also the local village where you can wonder for hours either through countryside or village lanes. The accommodation is fantastic, it has everything you need or would want for a two person get away from busy life where you can just switch off from everything. The small touches made by Fiona were lovely, and made the cottage very welcoming. The chicken and geese based outside the stable are a lovely touch, not loud and happily wonder round whilst you can sit outside and relax. If you wish to venture out it has some lovely nearby spots, we went down to Weymouth for one of the days, which has a fantastic beach. And I know there are many more places to visit which we would love to visit if we get another chance. Overall I would love to visit again, and I am sure me and partner will. 

Mr M. Aug 2016

We had a lovely stay in the apartment. It was a good base for a day trips to the coast. Fiona was available for anything we needed and gave us a lovely cake and bottle of wine when we arrived. Would recommend. Thanks.

Mr D. Aug 2016

Fiona and Jason couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly and helpful. The whole experience at The Little Stable exceeded our expectations - it was a beautiful setting with plenty of places to visit, but the actual accommodation was so stylish and comfortable it was hard to leave! Wonderfully relaxing and great fun watching the geese and ducks go about their daily routines. Can't wait to come back! ️️️️️

Mrs L. Aug 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Fiona's place. The little stable was complete, very neat, fully equipped and the bed was gorgeous with very nice linen bed sheets. The quiet environment was a surplus. We appreciated the warm welcome and treats that were present upon arrival and enjoyed the fresh eggs from the chickens. A real recommendation.

Mr V. July 2016

Well what can I say .... my friend and I had a lovely stay at The Little Stable Boutique. Fiona was a fantastic host and made it a very pleasant trip for us. (the homemade Lemon Drizzle Cake on arrival went down a treat!) The stable is comfortable, relaxing and finished with all the high-quality amenities you could ask for. We were pleasantly surprised to find that Fiona had ensured we had everything we needed including milk, eggs, cereal, wine and even homemade Gin! Sitting outside and watching the stars was one of my favourite things to do here which topped every evening off. However, the stable has some chickens, geese and ducks which are very friendly and add a lovely country sound to wake up to in the morning. I would definitely recommend visiting The Little Stable with it's beautiful location, private grounds and fantastic hosts you're sure to have just a fantastic time as we did. Thanks again Fiona!
