  • "A magical place to stay, very special."

    The cottage is homely and spotless, so peaceful yet within a 5-minute drive to the beautiful village of East Meon. The perfect place to get away from it all, in the company of pheasants, owls, deer and even the buzzard who rested on the garden fence! Will be back for sure.

    Thank you Julia. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay in this beautiful cottage."

    So peaceful with stunning views. Lots of pheasants and rabbits. I would agree with a previous post about giving more specific directions on how to find it - the cattle grid is a long way from where the postcode and google maps listing of Keepers Cottage takes you! Depending on which direction you approach the property, you'll pass on your left a turning signposted Cedar Valley, then you'll pass a turning with a large iron electric gate. Ignore these turn-offs and keep on the main road driving for approx another 1/2 mile and on your left you'll see two wheelie bins and a low wooden sign which says Keepers Cottage. Over the cattle grid and you follow the track to the house.

    Thank you Helen. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon. Property Owner

  • "Loved our week at this idyllically situated cottage."

    Well prepared, and with thoughtful starter things in the kitchen. Its great for those who like peace and quiet and the change to watch nature - hares, pheasant and deer all in full view. Although the weather was very hot, the cottage stayed pleasantly cool. Only tiny thing is that we would have appreciated clearer instructions on how to find it - maybe a little sketch map? If you arrive on a Friday check out the pizza and cafe camp in the nearby Cedar Valley.

    Thank you Amanda. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back soon. Property Owner
