What our guests say about Garden Cottage

Selina Rivers – Elegant Charming Country Cottage 5*
As soon as we turned off the road onto the driveway leading up to the property we sensed something special and Garden Cottage did not disappoint”. Set with the grounds of a working farm, it’s tucked in behind the main house and it is a beautiful property. Entering the cottage on a freezing winter’s evening was like walking into a warm embrace, with central and underfloor heating. Homemade chocolate Brownies were a lovely welcome touch. Beautifully decorated in Kate Forman, but with all the modern conveniences one needs for a comfortable stay, the cottage is located between the delightful towns of Alresford and Winchester, and we only wished we could’ve stayed longer!

Perfect hideaway 5* – Steve R
Great place to stay for a recent trip to Hampshire. Very comfortable and everything we required. Looking forward to returning. Not for those who don’t like steep stairs to bed but the loft bed was big and comfortable.

Grayham55 – Outstanding rural getaway! 5*
Our second visit was no less enjoyable than our first four years ago. Garden Cottage ticks all the boxes: appointed to a very high standard yet never “showy”, secluded yet within each reach of town, quirky yet very comfortable. Just delightful. As noted, the stairs to the sleeping loft are very steep (think Sherpa Tensing) and someone of restricted mobility might find them problematic, but this is very clearly stated in the property specs. That aside, no reservations at all, and Laura was a delight to deal with, even when I forgot the gate code !

Ecaterina_D_D – Bucharest, Romania – Excellent experience!!! 5*
Warm and comfortable cottage, great location, beautiful countryside, very kind, friendly and helpful property manager Laura!!! Thank you for the great experience!!!

The Garden Cottage is idyllic, a real get away from it all. Laura, our host, was excellent and responded really quickly to any enquiry. We particularly loved the various birds that you get to see on a daily basis, from guinea fowl to a stunning green woodpecker. The facilities are excellent too, which just makes it all the more welcoming. Thank you so much Laura.

Once again Laura, thank you for the use of the lovely Garden Cottage. I had such high expectations when I booked it, and hence why I said it met with my expectations because from our communication, I knew it was going to be special, and it was. I’ve told friends and family so hopefully you’ll get future bookings. Best wishes, Diane and James

Simon – A lovely place tastefully decorated in a gorgeous locatio

Vanessa – If you’re after a ‘get away from it all’ – Garden Cottage should be high on your list. The cottage sits just a short drive from ‘picture perfect’ Alresford with it’s beautiful high street and lovely pubs. The cottage itself sits in rural location on the Grange Estate with a few houses dotted around; you’re not completely secluded, but enough to feel that it’s just you in the lovely Hampshire countryside. The cottage is immaculate, well equipped and impeccably decorated and i.e. The White Company bedding – there’s really nothing not to like here. For those with mobility issues, there may be some difficulty in accessing the mezzanine level bedroom which is via a ‘ladder type’ staircase. Our stay was lovely, thank you!

Angelica – Lovely comfortable cozy cottage for a cold January weekend. There are some great walks from the doorstep and it’s very close to a lovely little local town with great pubs and restaurants.

Jeremy – First Class experience, thoroughly recommended.

Danny – A stunning little cottage in the heart of Hampshire. I would definitely recommend Garden cottage to anyone looking for an easy break away. very clean and perfectly setup.

Nola – This property is beautifully presented and as you see in the photos. This cottage offered us as a family of three perfect respite after travelling for the previous two weeks. The loft bedroom our 17yr old son loved. High spec cottage with everything from home you would need. We stayed three nights including Christmas eve & day and had booked Christmas lunch at a local Inn in Totford (Woolpack Inn) and was a perfect find for us. We would happily stay at Garden Cottage again.Private feedback

We had a lovely stay at Garden Cottage. Beautiful high spec property with all comforts of home.

Sarah – Absolutely loved our stay at Garden Cottage! The place is gorgeous, the pictures do not do it justice. We loved how modern the cottage was but has not lost any of its original charm. The host has amazing little touches which makes the stay even better such as milk and brownies on arrival, DVDs to watch, really good quality bed linen and towels, little soaps and shampoos and plenty of information and leaflets of things to do. The property is super clean with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful furniture. It’s a lovely cosy space to relax in! Hope to come back soon.

Chris – Fantastic place. Very clean, stylish and quiet with everything that I could have wanted. Great location for cycling to work from. If I am in the area again I will look first to see if this place is available.

Harriet – I booked garden cottage for a surprise birthday get away for my boyfriend and I. It was perfect, beautiful space that had everything we needed, amazing country walks to the nearest town that had lovely pubs and shops. Highly recommend the Woolpack Inn for fab food and atmosphere. The dog loved his stay and set in a lovely peaceful location. Thanks again for a prefect weekend away.

Gemma – Lovely, cosy modern place. Perfect for a week stay.

Natalie – Lovely stay at the Garden Cottage. The instructions for obtaining the keys were easy and accessible. Lovely touches like home made brownie on arrival which went down nicely with a cup of tea and milk which was also provided. Perfectly clean and quiet and amenable kitchen so we could cook each day. Bobby the dog also enjoyed himself and loved meeting one of the employers dogs one morning. Overall we loved the stay and would most certainly recommend the Garden Cottage and come back again

Chris – Beautiful space and surroundings with everything you need. Dog enjoyed himself very much. Will be staying again.

Kirsty – Tucked away in beautiful countryside, warm and welcoming as soon as we walked through the door. Perfect hideaway from the world but within reach of some lovely walks when the weather allowed. On a rainy day, this place is cosy and just what you need too. Grab a book and enjoy the soft lighting and a relaxing bath!

Emily – Our stay was perfect – the cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated, quiet and well equipped. A little (excellent value) haven for two, we loved the location – a short drive from London but still remote and yet in easy reach of places to visit. The nearby town of Alresford is delightful, the Grange Estate is beautiful and well worth a visit, and the local steam train a definite giggle. Laura sent us so much information after we’d booked with details of local restaurants, gardens and walks, and made it all very easy, responding very quickly to any questions we had. Can’t wait to come back and experience Hampshire in the full throws of summer! Thanks again for a perfect New Years Eve, Emily & Max

Philip – The was very nice. It is away from everything but close to everything
