VisitEngland 4 STARS
Old Stables Cottage is a carefully converted Georgian stable block, retaining the ambience of its time with the highest standard of contemporary comfort. Small, compact, on one level, it is ideal for 2 people requiring 4-star holiday accommodation on the open Forest.
Old Stables faces south towards the hills of the Isle of Wight and over the open forest to the west, where the sunsets are admired. The cottage dwells in its own private setting, complete with driveway, pretty garden and patio. Even in the winter on sunny days, guests can sit out as the sun concentrates on the south side of the cottage creating a pocket of warmth.
Many guests return year after year, so early booking is advised. Open all year, except December and January, Old Stables attracts guests from early spring as the Forest awakes with renewed life and New Forest pony foals are born, through the glorious summer months right up to November when the Forest is decked in autumn colour.
Quite separate from, but adjacent to, Myrtle Farm, the owners can always extend a friendly support service as well as having good local knowledge and experience of commoning and traditional farming. The village services include the shop, garage, church and Turfcutters Arms. Good food is available at the East End Arms, a mile towards Lymington Town and Ferry, while medieval Beaulieu village is 3 miles in a northerly direction.
The accommodation includes :
- a double or twin bedded room overlooking the Forest and the garden
- a comfortable living-dining room facing south over the garden
- a modern fitted kitchen, fully equipped
- a spacious bathroom with fitted rails for its approach
The all electric kitchen has a fridge-freezer, electric cooker, microwave and washing machine with integral tumble dryer. The bathroom includes full size bath and seperate shower, toilet and wash-hand basin. All linen is provided for bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
Heating and hot water are supplied by night storage heater, included in the rental. The cottage is carpeted throughout with the exception of the tiled kitchen and bathroom. Plasma television in the living room completes this well appointed, attractive and cosy cottage – a holiday special place for all seasons.
Babies are welcome free with their own cots.
The garden is fully fenced and a nice family dog is allowed at a small additional charge.
