Overview

About the property

Our holiday homes, Rose Cottage, Edward's Cottage and Stable Cottage, are set in the heart of the beautiful Hampshire countryside with wonderful views across a peaceful valley. They are a rural haven for visitors but only 10 minutes from Petersfield, with fantastic road and rail connections for London and Portsmouth. This description and photos are for Stable Cottage. Please see our other adverts for photos of Edward's Cottage and Rose Cottage. The three holiday homes would suit large groups and families looking to holiday together. Please ask your host, Venetia, for more information.

Our small working farm, Downlands Farm, on which the self-catering cottages are set, is just off a green-lane which leads to miles of footpaths, bridleways and on and off-road cycling. Pets are welcome at our holiday cottages, please enquire upon booking. We have a plenty of space to store bicycles and for a premium, guests are welcome to bring their horses and make use of our Lodden stables. There are three excellent pubs surrounding the farm, all within a half hour stroll or a 3 minute car journey. The quaint and bustling market town of Petersfield is a 10 minute drive from the farm and alongside the two local village shops, these all provide a perfect base for stocking up on essential items. The larger, cathedral cities of Chichester, Guildford, Portsmouth and Winchester are all equally 45 minutes away, offering great shopping and entertainment. We are so lucky to be within an hour’s drive from one of the premier Blue Flag beaches in the country, West Wittering. West Wittering is a beautiful place to visit, whatever the season, and can be enjoyed by all ages. During the low season (October to April), horse riding is permitted at any time during the day on West Wittering and the summer months offer horseriding before 9am and after 6pm. Hayling Island, a shingle beach (with funfair for the children!) is half an hour from Downlands Farm.

Stable Cottage offers light and airy accommodation with two ground floor bedrooms and a playroom/bedroom upstairs. After stowing muddy wellies in the under-cover porch, you will walk into our bright, well equipped kitchen / dining / sitting room. Stretching the entire width of the barn, this large room opens out through French windows onto your own private terrace and garden complete with garden tables and chairs. A television with BT Vision and Netflix will keep you entertained on those horrible rainy days. It goes without saying that guests have use of free Wifi. A utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer leads off from the kitchen which in turn leads to a well ventilated shower room. Two double bedrooms also lead off from the kitchen, the master bedroom having an ensuite bathroom with a large bathtub perfect for soaking after a long walk. Both bedrooms have televisions. Children will absolutely love their playroom at the top of the property. Accessed by stairs from the sitting room, children will have their own space to create chaos and noise. There is ample space up here to accommodate up to four additional people - two single beds and one double bed. There is no extra charge for use of a travel cot, stair gate and high chair as required. Please contact us for information and to discuss your requirements. Our change-over days are Fridays and Mondays and we welcome guests who wish to stay for a minimum of two nights up to a maximum of one month.

The Cottages are set on a working small-holding therefore visitors can expect to see cows, dogs and horses during their stay with us. Please note that all three holiday properties are adjacent/joined to one-another. Each house has its own private patio and garden but the parking is shared. They are all identical in terms of layout, size, kitchen and bathroom design. They only differ in regard to furniture, curtains etc. Due to the proximity to one-another and also to our farmhouse, you will be staying next door to children and animals (and sometimes noisy adults!). We are a laid-back farm which very much caters for families so if it is absolute peace and quiet you're after, you may want to look elsewhere!! Edward's Cottage and Rose Cottage are at the 'ends' and Stable Cottage is in the middle. Whilst the interior of the properties is beautiful, we would like to make it clear that, at present, the exterior is still a work in progress. This does not detract from the overall glorious setting.

The property particulars may change without prior notice and the owners are not liable for any inaccuracies in the property's description on our website or through media/advertising sources. Any photographs are for illustrative purposes only.

Fantastic accomodation for our 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place - very peaceful and beautifully decorated. Comfy sofas, wonderful beds, lots of space to put everything away, fully stocked kitchen and large fridge / freezer. Wifi was superb too. Kids had the whole of the loft - and they loved it. Venetia was lovely - super helpful and on hand if we needed anything.

The directions from Venetia are great - but you just need to know to leave the church on your immediate left as you go up the hill past it - after that the directions are perfect.

Would definitely stay again. Loved it.

Wonderful Visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I spent 9 days staying at this accommodation and had a great time. The cottage is very well appointed, has plenty of space and one of the best views you could ask for. The owners Venetia and David could not have been more welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be coming back.

Welcoming, very well-equipped and friendly

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage. Venetia and David made us very welcome, with thoughtful 'welcoming touches' - a homemade cake, fresh flowers, wine in the fridge and an excellent bone for Oska, our dog. The cottage is excellently equipped (lovely bed-linen!), spacious and warm and very comfortable and relaxing - with the added bonus of private outside space and a terrace to sit out in fine weather. It is really spacious, ideal for families to relax and just enjoy the countryside, wildlife and lovely views. There are some very good pubs close-by and the beautiful South Downs to explore. A good place for all seasons. Highly recommended.

Lovely Christmas at Stable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas at Stable Cottage on Downlands Farm. The cottage is very comfortable, warm and tastefully furnished - the humongous beds and linen are a treat and the attic was a fantastic for the kids and we hardly saw them as they were busy We absolutely loved the beautiful old table in the kitchen which was the hub of the house drawing Uno players and wine drinkers together. Lots of extra touches like the sink outside for washing muddy boots, fantastic laundry/utility room, well equipped kitchen.

It is situated right in the heart of the beautiful Hampshire countryside and at times you feel like you are the only person in the world taking a wander through the fields, however it is still very conveniently situated - a 7 minute drive to the lovely market town of Petersfield and very easy access to the A3 (Portsmouth or London)

Thank you Venetia and David. You were wonderful hosts and went the extra mile and added many touches that we had not expected. The kids have already asked when we can come back! We hope to see you again soon

Best wishes Eileen and John
