all of the very positive comments made by previous visitors to
'Carriers Stable'. we loved our little Christmas tree and the
stockings where a lovely and kind thought. Cooking Christmas
breeze - loosing the weight we gained is another matter!!
The pheasant paid us a visit along with many other birds which are a joy to watch from the kitchen window.
We recommend Seven in the village, and the Buddle Inn at Niton for good food at good prices.
Vanessa & Glyn - we wish you all the best and hope to see you again soon. Kent.
