Having stayed in several cottages over the years ( all of them nice) we would not have expected the step up in quality given the price of the rental.
The stable was very comfortable and perfect for us, I really find it hard to suggest any improvements that could be made.
I would very much recommend The Stable for its location, for it's facilities and for the way the owners Hilary and Mike made us feel so welcome.
What a jem of a place, beautiful setting and surroundings. Hilary and Mike were the perfect hosts. The Lemon Drizzle Cake waiting for us upon arrival is certainly worth a mention, not just because it tasted delicious but it is just another indication how much Hilary makes you feel welcome.The cottage had every thing we needed and was so cosy, perfectly situated for various activities but also beautifully secluded where you can just sit back and relax if you wish. This is one of the best places we have stayed in and would not hesitate to recommend it to any one looking to stay here.
Absolutely perfect venue for a break down on the south coast , from the welcome to the good bye , made to feel so at home .... wonderful time ... wonderful stable conversion , will be returning as most seem to when you read the guest book
Quite simply perfect 5*
This Location was Perfect for us - The Cottage itself was all you could wish for & the Welcome Pack was a great help. Would like to thank Hilary & Mike for there help during our stay we would certainly visit again.
The location of the stable is superb, close to Southampton and Portsmouth, yet so peaceful and quiet.
We stayed for 3 nights in March 17. On arrival, we received the best welcome pack anyone could asked for, homemade cake, bread and preserves along with milk, butter, cereal, fruit and many other useful items for our stay.
The Stable is very clean and comfortable. Everything you need for a break has been provided. Good size rooms and bathroom. The property was lovely and warm and the only noise was the bird son which was a pleasure.
Hilary and Mike are a very friendly couple who go that extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay.
We hope to be back for another visit as soon as possible
The Stable at Rambler Cottage is an excellent holiday accommodation in a quiet and peaceful location, with all the facilities one could wish for.
The Welcome Pack was exceptional and most welcome.
Hilary and Mike were wonderful hosts and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Wether staying in for a peaceful break or going out and about, the Stable is in an ideal location, with easy access for Eastleigh, Southampton and Portsmouth and Winchester.
Hedge End Railway Station is only a short drive away for venturing further afield .
We had a lovely stay here for three nights last weekend. We were in the area to watch the football at Southampton and it was perfectly placed being only 20-30 minutes drive from Southampton. Yes the cottage is 'cozy' but it had everything we needed for our short break. The directions provided on the website are clear and accurate and meant we found the place with no problem, even in the dark and with torrential rain. The welcome pack was much appreciated after a long drive. There is also a Marks and Spencers and Sainsbury's within 10 minutes drive for any other essentials you need. The kitchen had every utensil and appliance that you could need - the best stocked of anywhere we've ever stayed. So you'll have no problem if you want to eat in, although we would thoroughly recommend the Toby Carvery in Eastleigh - make sure you book at the weekend though.
The only small negative of the cottage is the low ceiling in the bathroom. When in the shower I had to stoop, so if you are taller than 6ft this will be the case. However please don't let this put you off. If we're ever in the area again we'll be sure to book here again.
