“Idyllic and well-equipped with execllent hosts”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I had an absolutely wonderful stay at The Stable. Hilary and Mike were excellent hosts - very friendly and always available if you needed anything. The cottage was very clean and had everything you needed with a well-equipped kitchen and fast wifi. The hamper on arrival was well appreciated - the homemade cakes and bread were amazing - what a nice welcome!

I would very much recommend The Stable!

Thank you for a lovely stay Hilary and Mike! :)

“Home away from home”

Comfortable, clean, well equipped. Easy access to major roads, but still very quiet. Home away from home. Almost certainly stay again even if its just for work.

In our 20 years of experience with self catering holidays The Stable at Rambler Cottage is the cleanest and best equipped accommodation we had the pleasure to stay. The welcome pack was also very appreciated.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I travelled from Western Australia to stay at this wonderful accommodation of Hilary and mikes. It was ideal for the two of us with easy access to many places and nice and peaceful to relax. On arrival Hilary had left homemade bread, cake, milk etc. We found we didn't have to worry about the necessities as they had been provided as well. Lots of lovely little country pubs with excellent food on the menus. Plenty of information provided on places to go and eat. Hilary and mike were great hosts letting us know they were there if needed but not intruding. If we are back that way again we would definitely go back. I highly recommend it it.

A very comfortable stay in 'the stable' with all facilities required for a week's stay in locality of Southern Hampshire. Gardens are wonderful and property oozes character! A quiet stay is assurred. Welcome pack was great.

Horton Heath is a quiet village with nearby commercial area of Hedge End approx. 3 miles away. Good to visit Portsmouth historic dockyard/ tourism and waterfront or Southampton tourism attractions within 30mins drive.

Thank you Hilary & Mike for a fantastic time at your beautiful cottage. Home from home especially the homemade cakes & bread.

Watering your garden and feeding the birds was most enjoyable.

That was so helpful of you - watering the garden & looking after all the bird families - while we were needing to be with family in London. New twin boys had arrived much earlier than expected in our family. Hope we'll see you again. Thank you. Mike & Hilary
