  • "The cottage was not as described."

    The ground floor bedroom has a sofa bed and is in a separate locked building to the main house. The cottage was very dirty and the downstairs bathroom unusable due to damp and a foul smell. The beds were very hard and the whole cottage in general not very clean. Mould on inside of windows. The garden is not secure and dogs/children can easily wander to the grounds where there is open water. The kitchen is not adequately equipped with utensils for cooking. The main bathroom leaked dripping through the ceiling below. I would not recommend this cottage until it is refurbished and all issues rectified.

    Dear Teresa. Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to let us know about your recent stay. The cottage has now undergone a full check and the mould on the inside of the window has been dealt with. I was also sorry to read that the mattress was not to your personal satisfaction and you felt it was too hard. We have taken your comments on board regarding the enclosed garden and we will put an action plan in place to rectify this. Once again thank you for your feedback and I can assure you that the issues raised have now all been addressed. Regards The Elvetham Hotel. Property Owner

  • "I picked this beautiful quaint picturesque cottage mainly because it looked like it had a fully enclosed garden, which is hard to find when you have a dog."

    Unfortunately the garden was not fully enclosed, my dog would have easily got out through a walkway that went up to the hotel and also he could have easily got through the copse of trees edging the garden. Luckily I took a stake just in case, which we had to use to keep the dog safe while enjoying the garden and hot tub. The house itself supplied most of the necessities but not coasters and table mats which I found hard when putting plates and drinks on the tables. Also in the information book it implied that you could order food from the hotel as long as you paid a tray charge but when ordering food, the restaurant said that the food would be cold if delivered so we had to go to the hotel bar to eat. The house was comfortable with an endless supply of towels and toiletries and there grounds of the the hotel were beautiful. We had an enjoyable stay. Thank you

The property

Hartley Wintney 1.5 miles.

Resting on the gorgeous, landscaped gardens of the brilliant Elvetham Hotel in the small town of Hook, near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire, lies the stunning, three-bedroom holiday home of The Gardeners Cottage.

Boasting off-road parking for three cars, pristine gardens with lawn, patio areas and a hot tub, as well as great positioning a short drive from the nearest amenities, this superb property makes a perfect base for a family or group of sharing friends who are seeking a relaxing, self-catered rural escape.

Inside, you will find plenty to love about this beautiful, period cottage, with a collection of bright and spacious living areas, including a fully-equipped kitchen/diner where you and your loved ones can prepare and enjoy your dinners, whilst a plush sitting room invites the whole group to kick back and relax whilst you watch a film on the sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV.

Before the sun sets, head outside and indulge with a dip in the outdoor hot tub, a truly idyllic way to spend an evening as you gaze up as the starry night begins to appear overhead.

When sleep finally calls, refresh with a revitalising shower before you eventually settle down for a well-earned rest in one of the three sumptuous bedrooms.

If you can tear yourself from your lovely new home, head out to explore what The Elvetham Hotel, and your local area has to offer.

A medieval building set within historic grounds that have played home to both Saxon and Norman invasions, whilst also previously serving as a base for both Tudor and Elizabethan royalty, discover the numerous amenities housed by Elvetham, which include the Sylvanus Restaurant and the Gloriana Bar where you can enjoy a decadent Sunday lunch, a spot of afternoon tea, or even a cocktail or two one evening.

Take time to peacefully roam the tranquil grounds at Elvetham, including the serene locale of William Goldring’s Garden, set within 35 beautiful acres of land, before you reconnect with nature on a walk along one of the many routes located within easy reach of the hotel grounds.

A short drive into nearby Hartley Wintney will bring you to your nearest convenience store, where you can stock up on homely essentials, whilst a delicious and filling pub lunch can be savoured at The Cricketers or the Waggon & Horses.

Golf enthusiasts can also spend an afternoon practicing their approach play at the Hartley Wintney Golf Club if they fancy.

For a full day out, jump in the car and make the brief drive to west to Basingstoke, a charming town home to attractions including the Milestones Museum, Eastrop Park, and the National Trust landmark of The Vyne, a Tudor-style country house with an ornamental lake and immaculately kept gardens.

For an unforgettable stay in the south of England, look no further than The Gardeners Cottage.
