  • "This is a lovely property in a great location with the New Forest within easy reach."

    Highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in a rural location but not too far from cities such as Salisbury.

    Thank you for your lovely recommendation. Property Owner

  • "It's a lovely cottage in a lovely location."

    However the arrangements on arrival were pretty unsatisfactory. I had contacted the host a week in advance to ask about check in. She'd given me the wrong code to the key safe and was then completely uncontactable on the day of arrival. Luckily we were still in working hours and could get the correct code from Manor cottages. But not being contactable on check in day is pretty poor form. She then only called me the next day and didn't e en apologise for giving me the wrong code. She said the key safe had been left on the correct code. But how would I have known that at the time if I'd been expecting a different code. Also what if we had had a different problem that Manor cottages couldn't fix over the phone? I just think on the day your guests arrive you need to answer your phone.

  • "We stayed for the wedding of my daughter."

    The hostess Jane could not have been nicer. Allowing us early access to store dresses and gifts. Complimentary champagne on arrival. The cottage was beautifully decorated. Dressing gowns for all and fantastically well equipped. Lovely soaps and hand creams. The surroundings are stunning. Country Pub nearby and very peaceful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wishing a little luxury and a stress free stay.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Stable Cottage."

    The location for us was perfect to explore The New Forest. The cottage was very clean and well presented, the beds were extremely comfortable. The only down point was the WiFi signal was a little poor for our teenagers, however it made them put down there phones for a while....... We used the bar-b-que a lot and ate outside which was lovely and the boys could get a decent WiFi signal. We had no problems and would definitely stay again.

  • "We stayed in Stable Cottage in September 2015 to celebrate a special family occasion."

    As there were 10 of us we also rented the adjoining cottage - The Tallet. Both premises were clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Being situated on a working farm it is a very peaceful location and has plenty of scope for walking.

  • "Stable Cottage is a very comfortable and well equipped property in a peaceful village."

    The owners were most helpful. The facilities could not be faulted, and there is great privacy. We stayed to be able to assist our daughter with her wedding preparations.

About the location


Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.

Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
