About Victoria Cobden

Westbury Manor Stables are owned by Simon and Victoria Cobden. They live a couple of hundred yards from the Stables so are available to answer any queries you may have whilst you are on holiday. Simon is a farmer whilst Victoria helps on the farm and looks after their two children and The Stables

Victoria Cobden purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Victoria Cobden chose West Meon

Westbury Manor Farm was bought by Mr and Mrs Cobden snr in 1973 and the family have lived there ever since. The Stables are owned by their eldest son Simon and his wife Victoria - they were converted from stables to a luxury holiday cottage in 2012. It is lovely to live on a farm in a rural setting but also have all the amenities you could possibly need just a few miles away.

What makes this cottage unique

The Stables are on the edge of a working farm and whilst guests must be aware farms can be dangerous places due to tractors and machinery, there is the opportunity to see newborn lambs and calves at certain times of the year. Lovely walking area within the South Downs National Park. The Stables have been converted to a luxury standard but retain the character of the Victorian building

Excellent cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect two night break in this lovely accommodation. We were able to arrive early on the Friday and leave later on the Sunday which made the weekend even more relaxing.

Cottage was very comfortable and warm. Well equipped with everything you need.

Local pub was a short walk away and the food was excellent.

Beautiful Cottage in the heart of the country!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing little treasure of a place. From the warm welcome from Victoria and her family; with the welcome cakes and being shown around the farm meeting the new lambs and calves, to the very comfortable stay in the cottage itself. A perfect place for us as a family to relax and attend a local wedding. The cottage is very spacious with everything you need and in a great location for walks and a small walk to the lovely local pub The Thomas Lord. A Wonderful place that I would highly recommend.

Great little cottage in heart of South Downs

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 1 5 year old) stayed here for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Victoria was really helpful throughout the booking and checking in / checking out process. The cottage is a converted barn in a working farm (which makes it quite nice for children as they can see the farm animals). When we arrived (quite late) we had a lovely food "hamper" waiting for us, which was a nice surprise. The cottage is clean and has everything you need. It's also very warm (which was great after a day out walking in the rain!).

There plenty of nature reserves to go walking - would definitely recommend Old Winchester Hill and West Meon Valley Trail. There's a Waitrose in Petersfield if you want to get groceries and plenty of pubs within few minutes driving.

I wish I had booked for longer

  • 5 of 5

This is a super cottage in a lovely area.

I booked because I and my family needed to be in the area for a several events but, as I drove through the countryside each day, I felt an urge to go out and invest in some walking boots.

The owner is friendly and very helpful and there were many thoughtful extras waiting for us on our arrival, including a lovely cake, jams, bread and a bottle of wine.

The cottage is very well equipped and a real home from home.

We stayed for three nights and I wished I had booked for longer. We will certainly return.

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

So pleased we booked this property as it suited our needs for 4 of us perfectly. We were shocked and thrilled that despite only staying 2 nights a welcome package was still provided....above & beyond - thank you Victoria! There was everything we needed and the stable conversion has been done beautifully with great character. A very peaceful setting and having a separate private entrance could be another plus for some guests, along with the enclosed plot suiting a dog. Clean, well stocked, well maintained and homely. Could not fault the booking communications and consistent willingness to make our stay as nice as it could be. Would love to go back (if only to master the key retrieval better this time!)
