We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Stables, especially the peace and quiet as our trip necessitated a lot of travelling.
It was very nicely fitted out, ideal for a couple and Marion, the owner, went out of her way to make our stay so enjoyable.
True it was a tad difficult to find the first time but when the satnav had the route it was a doddle.
It is ideally situated for touring Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset.
Well executed conversion with good quality amenities make this a great place to stay.
We found plenty of places to visit including Winchester, 4 National Trust properties, Watercress railway, Bishops Waltham, National Motor Museum at Beaulieu and the Historic Naval docks in Portsmouth.
I would advise you to study the map before leaving. We followed satnav instructions on the way which took us down miles of very narrow lanes with few passing areas. We found that going out and returning through the village of Upham (1 mile to the south) was easier.
Really enjoyed our stay!
The Stables was the best 2 person accommodation that we have ever stayed in. It was the perfect retreat away from the daily hustle and bustle of urban life. The detail by the owners was exceptional from the very well equipped kitchen right down to a little bedside clock. The property was well laid out and very clean and well decorated, a lot of effort has been put in by the owners to make it very comfortable and welcoming. It would not matter what the weather was like outside, if it was wet and cold it would be cosy and warm with the log burner and underfloor heating and if it was hot and sunny there is the use of a magnificent private garden. You'll find it difficult to go home after experiencing a stay at the Stables.
We stayed at the Stables for three nights. The accommodation is faultless and the owners have thought of every last detail. The location is close to Winchester and perfect for a day out to the cathedral and military museums. We would highly recommend the Stables and would definitely like to return to enjoy a few more glasses of wine around the log burner! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Accomodation & surroundings were great.
The Stables as beautifully furnished and fitted,everything you could want was supplied.
Owners were available but invisible.
Highly recommended for a stay in this beautiful part of the country.
Great base for Winchester, Chisester,Portsmouth,Southampton.

My partner and 1 spent 5 days here from 23rd December last year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was laid out to make us feel right at home with a charming lay out, a comfortable living space and a log fire to cosy-up to in the evenings.
The area surrounding had a variety of countryside walks with great views over the Winchester countryside.
A big thank you to Justin and Merriam who hosted our stay perfectly and made our Christmas extra special. We look forward to returning in the future.
