    “Lovely cosy place and brilliant ...”
    Lovely cosy place and brilliant location. So quiet with beautiful surroundings. With two small children Swallow Cottage was ideal. Really enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

Just a suggestion. It would have been helpful to have an outdoor washing line. Apart from this we found the cottage very well equipped.

Snakemoor Farm Cottages

Two delightful single-storey barn conversions, in a rural setting on the owner's cattle and equestrian farm, on the edge of the South Hampshire village of Durley, 2 miles from Botley. These charming Durley cottages have been converted to a very high standard, and both boast cosy woodburners, as well as en-suite facilities. These Durley cottages are set within the owner's farmyard, where horses often come and go from the adjacent stables. Locally, there are many lovely walks and the owner is happy to offer visitors riding lessons or hacking by arrangement from her nearby equestrian centre. There are plenty of places to visit within a short drive of these Durley cottages, including Marwell Zoo, the beautiful Meon Valley, and the River Hamble, whilst the historic Royal Naval Dockyard at Portsmouth and ancient Winchester are also easily accessible. Two lovely Durley cottages, providing a superb base from which to explore this lovely area throughout the year.
