“relaxing place to catch up with friends and family”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A fantastic little cottage, very comfortable and relaxing. Nice welcome pack of goodies on arrival which i thought was very thoughtful of the owners.
Easy access to many local places and lots of information in the cottage to help you decide where to go and where to eat. Would hughly recommend and will be going back now that i have found it.

Thank you for your kind words Elaine and Mike and I wish you well with your holiday house in Langport.
It sounds as if your husband is a keen fisherman to go night fishing. Both our sons have a passion for fishing too, so much so that they set up Lake Juvance in Jessains, France with a friend and now Jeff has recently taken on more lakes next to it! Huge carp have been caught there this summer and in previous years.
Anyway we wish you both all the best - Hilary & Mike

“Great location!!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Accommodation as advertised. Has the feel of the countryside but all amenities to hand - the best of both worlds. Really enjoyed our stay. Hilary and Mike are excellent hosts but will keep their distance to allow for privacy.

“Accommodation of the highest standard”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Excellent place to stay, clean comfortable and delightful. Everything has been thought of to make your stay as relaxing and restful as can be. Location ideal for exploring the New Forest and the south downs. Owners go above and beyond including fresh bread and cake on arrival, with tea, coffee,butter, jam and milk in the fridge, just what you need after a long journey.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Mike and Hilary are great hosts and will do anything to make your stay go smothely,you will find a few essentials that your hosts have put in the fridge. There is a large home baked loaf and a orange drizzle cake waiting for you in the kitchen, The Stable is comfortable with everything you need a lovely kitchen and large bathroom with a double shower. Outside is a well stocked garden and at the front of the Stable is a small patio with table and chairs to sit on and have a glass of wine in the evening and watch the different birds flying in and out of the garden. Mike and Hillary have a good selection of books to read or games to play plus they have a selection of leaflets for things to do or go and see nearby. This really has to be one of the best places to stay for this kind of holiday or a place to use as a base.

Thank you John for such a comprehensive review. When I read "outside is a well - then next line "stocked garden"- what we've probably not told you is that we do have a well. It is right outside our back door and we walk over it several times a day without falling in as yet! The cover we now have over it is meant to take half a ton! We can use the water now in lieu of tap water, as Mike has put a pump down it. This saved us a fair amount off our water bill last summer.

“Perfect getaway or work base”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I stayed at the Stable, at Rambler's Cottage for 4 weeks, and found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable stay. It was a great place to getaway and an idyllic base to travel to my job in Basingstoke.

Mike & Hilary did everything they could to make me feel welcome and ensure i had a pleasant stay, from allowing me to park my motorbike close to the Stable, to providing a 'Welcome Goody Pack' that included homemade bread, fruit basket, muesli, milk, and preserves on my arrival and again at the 2 week interval. They left me to my own devices, so I had plenty of room to breathe, but made it clear that if I needed anything all I need do was ask.

The Stable has everything you could need in terms of cooking and such, allowing you to live and function as would in your own home, as well as having Wifi and NowTV so you can relax in the evening. Mike and Hilary really have thought of everything, but are on hand if you do have any questions or requests.

I had a fantastic stay, and would recommend The Stable at Rambler's Cottage without hesitation, to anybody looking for relaxing break, a great place to use as a base for traveling to work, or exploring the surrounding areas.

Thanks Geoff for your review. We could not have asked for a better neighbour to be so close to us for a month than Geoff. He's a great guy with a great bike!
