Chris and Gayle have thought of everything. At the Stables at Clarendon we wanted for nothing. An immaculate property with beautiful decor and plentiful breakfast provisions. The gardens are lovely and fastidiously maintained with bird feeders (topped up morning and afternoon by Chris) in full view of your window. Any visitor would be hard pressed to find fault with this impressive escape.
