“Heaven in Hampshire”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We have been fortunate enough in our travels to visit some wonderful places in the world but little did we know that a piece of heaven was hiding in the beautiful village of West Meon on the South Downs in Hampshire. Complimented by the area's natural beauty and within easy reach of Winchester, Chichester and Portsmouth (we even made a day of it in Brighton), The Stables was beyond all our expectations. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Vanessa and Mark Wills and nothing was spared in the attention to detail evident in their preparation for guests. Matches were even left by the many candles! They have created a contemporary country retreat in a peaceful, scenic setting which we will never forget. Don't hesitate....just book it!

“BEYOND PERFECT”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We fell in love with the Stables. Vanessa and her family were so welcoming. The Stables is the best self catering property we have rented. Everything you needed was provided. It well deserves its 5 star rating. The peace and tranquility of the location was wonderful. Afternoon tea on arrival was a lovely surprise. The village provided a great pub for dining, an excellent butchers and a good village store. Thank you Vanessa for a very memorable holiday, we highly recommend The Stables.

“The perfect realisation of a rural holiday house for 2 (or 3)”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We chose The Stables as a pre-exam retreat over half-term with our daughter (at UK boarding school - we live in Denmark). We got 100+% what we wanted for that, and a really lovely location however you look at it, with superb and tasteful internal design/quality fittings in the building to give us an excellent short holiday.

The Wills were very welcoming and thoughful in making our stay enjoyable (a perfect balance of solicitude and unobstrusiveness), including numerous very nice touches, including in the fridge on arrival. An adjoining field of sheep provided a sort of living screen-saver against a background of beautiful countryside (ah well, this is a British National Park..); surprisingly, the cute little rabbit hopping around the garden wasn't a deliberate design feature. The local area is excellent for walks and tourist diversions, including West Meon with its picture-postcard looks and a small number of shops etc.; all excellent in context.. I could go on, but I don't think I need to.

“Simply perfect! We loved our stay and Vanessa made us feel so welcome”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We loved this place - superbly converted stables to such a high standard.. The views overlooking the fields are splendid and can be seen from the bed. It was december when we stayed so could no try out the swimming pool but it looks like it will be very inviting on a hot summer day. Vanessa made us feel very welcome and made sure that we had everything that we needed. A wonderful hideaway in a perfect setting.. thank you so much.. we will be back
