“Charming property and great location”
Reviewed 23 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

“Perfect”

people found this review helpful

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.

Thank you so much for your glowing review.. we were very touched.
Sadly despite all our glowing references we cannot get a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor because although we meet the quality criteria we do not pay them enough!!
We do not use their online booking or pay them per booking we receive as we have an annual contract.
So this is nothing to do with excellence in the end as it seems a money making racket!! We were so disappointed to find this out as comments like yours give us a real boost and it would have been nice to get an official recognition.
At least the English Tourist Board awards are not linked to how much you spend with them
Best wishes

“Perfect retreat in the countryside”
Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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

Thank you so much our dear guests for your very kind comments. It was so nice having you here and having such an interesting chat with you before you left. We love your Bongo and have today viewed a converted one in Southampton but too expensive! We'll keep looking.

“Real home from home”
Reviewed 10 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

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 .

Thank you for your review. It is so nice to hear how we meet our guests expectations. We are, as you say quite central for visiting a lot of Hampshire attractions and try to provide a nice cosy refuge to return to.
