Garden Cottage

Beautiful Hampshire Holiday Cottage To Let

Garden Cottage, a detached converted barn, is an ideal retreat for 2 plus 2 people. Situated next to the 18th century farmhouse at Abbotstone, it offers the opportunity to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a rural setting with the modern comforts, style and charm of a property completely renovated for modern living.

The cottage was carefully redecorated with advice from local interior designer Fifi Leuchars. Many original features have been retained, but we have brought the cottage up to modern standards epitomised by the well-equipped kitchen and luxurious bathroom.

The house is located in unspoilt countryside – perfect for getting away from it all and enjoying a peaceful, private location.

Elegant Charming Country Cottage *****

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!

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!


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 Year’s Eve, Emily & Max

Will be returning to this gorgeous cottage. Full marks on all fronts – with the ONLY downside the very narrow and steep steps up to the bedroom. Was just a bit wary when going to the bathroom in the night. (It was down said stairs). A minor thing and everything else was wonderful. Lovely touch on arrival with a gift of homemade cakes and freshly laid eggs! Will highly recommend. Thank you

Beautiful cottage, very welcoming especially with the little additional touches of fresh brownies, eggs and milk. Very well equipped kitchen with tea, coffee and sugar provided. The cottage details didn’t specify that towels were provided but they were. Would definitely stay again

Lovely comfortable accommodation in a peaceful location, but with easy access to nearby New Alresford, which has plenty of amenities. Lots to do in the area, and the nearby villages are delightful as well. Think we will be back soon.

Recently and attractively renovated cottage in an beautiful rural location. Very quite and peaceful. Potential guests should take note of the staircase which is very steep and could cause some people a problem.
