Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This end terrace property is a beautiful barn conversion on a working farm in rural Hampshire within an hour’s drive of the award-winning beach of West Wittering.

Downlands Farm is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Hampshire countryside with wonderful views across the peaceful valley. This rural haven is only 10 minutes from Petersfield, with fantastic road and rail connections for London and Portsmouth. These three holiday cottages, Rose Cottage (ref UKC1350), Stable Cottage (ref UK1817) and Edward’s Cottage (ref UKC1818) are set on a small working farm and just off a green-lane leading to miles of footpaths, bridleways and on and off-road cycling within the South Downs National Park. The cottages offer light and airy open plan living accommodation with two ground floor bedrooms and a special ‘hideaway’ bedroom/playroom to accommodate children.
The barns have been converted from original agricultural buildings and have been sympathetically designed to blend with the surrounding countryside, while offering comfortable accommodation. For biking enthusiast there is a shared bike shed for bike storage and by arrangement, guests are welcome to bring their horses and make use of the Loddon stables. There are three local pubs within the vicinity, all within a half hour stroll or a 3-minute car journey away. The bustling market town of Petersfield is a 10-minute drive, and has a range of shops and restaurants, and along with the two local village shops; these provide all you need for stocking up on essential items. The cathedral cities of Chichester, Guildford, Portsmouth and Winchester are all 45 minutes away, and offer a range of shops and entertainment. The beautiful beach at West Wittering is an hour’s drive away, and this lovely location is ideal to visit, whatever the time of year, and is perfect for all ages. During low season (October to April), you can ride your horse at any time on the beach at West Wittering, and during the summer months you can ride before 9am and after 6pm.
Hayling Island has a children’s fun fair and a shingle beach, and is within half an hour from Downlands Farm. The cottages enjoy direct access to miles of scenic walking and cycling routes through the beautiful countryside and pretty villages such West Meon, where you can enjoy lunch at one of the pubs serving food, and where Thomas Lord rests, founder of Lords cricket. The market town of Petersfield has a range of restaurants and shops, and if you fancy a day trip to London, the local train service takes approximately one hour. There are several attractions in the area that are worth a visit, including Portsmouth with the Spinnaker Tower, HMS Warrior and Nelson’s HMS Victory, along with the historic Winchester Cathedral, King Arthurs Round Table, and Southampton with its extensive maritime history. For walking and riding the vast heathland of The New Forest National Park is ideal. For a cultural day out, try historic Chichester with its cathedral and festival theatre, and not forgetting the Watercress Steam Train, Jane Austen’s house, Gilbert White’s house, Marwell Zoo, Birdworld and the Queen Elizabeth Country Park which is the other side of the valley. Beach 15 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The accommodation is homely and comfortable with everything needed for a pleasant stay. The upstairs bedroom is a large space well suited to loose the children in with a TV and DVD player and a selection of toys. The roof is sloping so adults needs to just watch their heads. But it's a great place for kids to play if the weather is too poor to go outside. The outside area is a good space for playing games and safe for children to run around and let off some steam. The only (very) slight issue we had was that there is only one walk in shower, the bath in the ensuite room although it does have a shower attachment does not have the facility for a stand up shower making it a bit of a wait if everyone needs to have a shower. With a party of four adults and three childen this took a bit of planning ahead. The Cottage itself is on a working farm and the children loved going to visit the horses which are in the stables attached to the end of the cottages. The location is beautiful with views across rolling hills and farmland but the requirement for a car is essential should you wish to visit anywhere, although there are a lot of reasonable walks from the Cottage all were a bit far to take three childen under 8. With all that said it was a lovely Cottage and we had a great holiday and would look at returning in the future.
