“A quaint stable next to a gorgeous thatched English cottage”

person found this review helpful

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

Very comfortable and cosy place. Very well equipped with high quality products. Absolutely spotless - hard to believe anyone had stayed there before us! A very warm welcome from the hosts and lots of useful information provided

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Having just spent my ninth visit, to "The Stable", I have to say that everything was wonderful from arrival, to departure, (which sadly comes too soon).
The welcome pack is a really nice thought, especially the lemon drizzle, and everything in the stable is perfect.
Hilary and Mike make great hosts, and are ready to help if needed. I will definitely be returning next year.

“the stsbles at rambler cottage”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Subject: The Stable at Rambler Cottage
Location: Southampton, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom, Europe
Title: Highly recomended
ID#: 238250851

we stayed 4 nights at the stables while visiting our student daughter in Southampton only six miles for the city. Hillary and her husband provided a welcome pack of tea milk bread etc which was very much appreciated. I enjoyed my morning walk in the quiet cul de sac which is surrounded by agricultural land. Every thing you would require is in situ and we will look to rebook on our next visit to our daughter.

“Excellent, clean and comfortable.”

We had a lovely stay at this delightful accommodation. The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It was perfectly located for day trips and situated in a very quiet and peaceful area. The owners, Hilary and Mike were very welcoming.
