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.

Due to our rural location, the mobile phone signal and WIFI connection can often be weak, particularly during periods of rain or fog.

A car is absolutely essential if you wish to stay at Downlands Farm.

Perfect family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Rose cottage was the perfect place to stay for our family trip to glorious Goodwood. The cottage was clean well equipped and Venetia was available if we had any problems and needed advice about places to visit. West Wittering beach was beautiful and Petersfield is a lovely market town with a very good Sunday market.

Fantastic farm cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. We stayed with our 16 month old child. It's very family friendly. He enjoyed playing in the garden and enjoyed life on the farm. The farm is in an excellent location to explore nearby attractions.

We look forward to visiting again.

Lovely Short Break in Beautiful Countryside

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, with our two daughters and their partners and our Border Terrier Millie enjoyed a lovely weekend break in Stables Cottage. Viv and I stayed on for 5 more days. Stables cottage is one of three units in a lovely well equipped converted barn. The cottage has beautiful views to the back of the Hampshire countryside. We spent our time exploring the surrounding area mainly on foot taking advantage of many walking trail opportunities including the south downs walk. There were a couple of pubs nearby that did decent food and great beer. Venetia was a perfect host and a great help. She was there when we needed her (no flour for the white sauce!) and helped us interpret the walking tour instructions. Accommodation was very comfortable and I can't think of anything that was lacking in the kitchen. We would definitely stay again.
