The Old Stable is in a quiet location. Our hosts were very friendly without being overly present. The accommodation was spacious, warm and comfortable. In close proximity to Portsmouth and Southampton and places of interest.

Wow what a great place, it had a very special feel to it. It was high quality accommodation, I didn't want to leave, it was one of the best places I have stayed. A very relaxing a home from home. After this place most other cottages will always be slightly disappointing.

We had an amazing week at The Old Stable with our two small boys. The property is beautifully presented and made us feel at home straight away, by far the best property we've ever stayed in. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to our family and friends!

Friendly welcome from the owner. Very nice man and happy to sort out any problems, but there were none to sort. Excellent accommodation we will be going back next year when the weather is warmer. Ideal location for many different places and other Towns to visit.

I have already recommended this property to other people. The Location is good for exploring the area and the cottage is outstanding in its standards. The owners made us feel very welcome and at home. Hope to return soon.

A fantastic place to stay and everything we could have hoped for. It was a home from home and so easy to find with the directions, just wish we could have stayed longer. The Owners are such lovely people and made us feel so welcome and were only next door if we needed anything, which we didn't as the cottage had everything you could think of in it. So clean, new and so much space. We can't wait to go back again next year and will be telling our friends and family where to stay if they need a break in Southampton.
Mrs Ward

We could find no fault with this property whatsoever, it was first class, top notch in every respect with lovely owners on hand to provide help and guidance.
Mrs Barnes
July 2014
The property was very comfortable, the furnishings and the overall finish were of a very high standard. The photographs don't do it justice! It was a good location - quiet but easy to get to motorway etc and explore other places. The owners are really welcoming and helpful.

A very cosy and quiet location to stay. We had a great time and the owners are such lovely people and could not do enough for us during our stay. With Paulton's Park (Home of Peppa Pig) and Portsmouth less than 30 minutes drive away it is a great base to stay. Our daughter kept saying 'this is such a lovely house' that she didn't want to leave. A great find and we shall definitely go back.

The cottage was in excellent condition, each room was nicely presented. The cottage felt spacious for our 2 children to play around. The bathrooms were modern and in very good working order. The owners were very helpful and the horses at the end of the field were the icing on the cake for our kids. Overall perfect.

We stayed at the Old Stable near Durley for three nights. You won't be disappointed with the quality of this place. It has been renovated recently so everything is brand new, we were the second family to stay here. The beds are very comfortable, and I am fussy! The kitchen is superb as is the whole place. Bob and Pat were very welcoming and we had the most fantastic homemade cup cakes waiting for us! The location is ideal as you are only half an hour from peppa pig world, Southampton and Portsmouth. The old stable is on a quite lane and have been told there is a pub easy walking distance, watch out for the munch jack in the fields. Great place and would certainly stay again if in the region!

The old Stable has been the best accommodation we have stayed in. Everything about the cottage was perfect. Spotlessly clean and decorated lovely. Everything was of a very high standard. Pat and Bob were lovely. The area great. A couple of lovely local pubs nearby, one within walking distance. Excellent base to explore everything that Hampshire has to offer. I recommend this cottage highly. It's been one of the best holidays we've ever had.

Very relaxing in great surroundings! The Old Stable was spotless and we were the only second family to stay there, so everything was brand new. The owners were very nice and made us very welcome. I would highly recommend this place to stay in. Only 30 minutes from Peppa Pig World and the coast.
