About Stable Cottage

Stable Cottage sleeps up to eight guests (four to six adults plus two to four children) and is a welcoming retreat for friends and families nestling in a tranquil valley setting amongst rolling Hampshire countryside. Sitting in the South Downs National Park, the cottage affords lovely views and provides the opportunity for peace and tranquility whilst being conveniently placed close to the Hampshire market town of Petersfield (just ten minutes by car). Good road and train connections make Stable Cottage accessible from London and within easy reach of Portsmouth.

One of two holiday cottages available for self-catering on the farm, Stable Cottage is light and airy throughout, with two double bedrooms on the ground floor, along with a special attic area upstairs where the little ones will love playing and can also sleep with the addition of extra beds by arrangement.

Downlands Farm is a small family-run farm where you will see cattle peacefully grazing in a wonderful setting. There are miles of spectacular country walks from the front door and plenty of tracks and lanes to keep cyclists happy (bike storage available). Stabling and grazing is also available for those who want to bring their horse away to explore this lovely part of South England.

For those wanting something a little more leisurely, you have the choice of three pubs for a long lazy lunch or evening meal out within walking distance (half an hour by foot or a short three minute car ride away). A good range of shops can be found at Petersfield, or closer to home you have two village stores for stocking up on provisions.

There are plenty of nice days out for those who can tear themselves away from the lovely setting of the farm. The cities of Winchester, Chichester, Guilford and Portsmouth are all under an hour away by car; or for a day by the sea, head to the glorious sandy beach of West Wittering in West Sussex (an hour away) or closer to home, Hayling Island for traditional seaside fun (just thirty minutes). There are also plenty of attractions to entertain all ages including Goodwood for a day at the races, Marwell Zoo, Paultons Park with Pepper Pig World (sure to be a hit with the kids!), Arundel Castle, Highclere Castle (better known as 'Downton Abbey'!), and Jane Austen's House Museum to name just a few.
