Holiday Rental House
Our holiday homes, Louisa's Cottage, Rose Cottage, Stable Cottage and Edward's 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 is for Stable Cottage. Please see our other adverts for photos of Rose Cottage and Edward's Cottage. The four 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.

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 is for Stable Cottage. Please see our other adverts for photos of Rose Cottage and Edward's Cottage. The four 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 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 three nights up to a maximum of one month. Please note that all three holiday properties are adjacent/joined to one-another. Edward's Cottage and Louisa's Cottage are at the 'ends' and Rose Cottage and Stable Cottage are in the middle. Each house has its own private patio and garden but the parking is shared. Due to the proximity to one-another, you may well 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!! Please note, the four holiday houses are situated within a working barn and farm. 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 WIFI and mobile phone signal can sometimes be weak, particularly in periods of fog/mist and rain. A car is absolutely essential if you wish to stay at Downlands Farm. 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.
