“Just what the doctor ordered”

We stayed here for three nights in late May, and despite the weather we had a lovely time. Julie and Simon are great hosts who are there if you need them but also give you space, as although it's in their back garden it feels very private because of the placement of the windows and the huge space it's set in. Their pet dog, Ralph, is beautiful and makes a welcome addition to the place! The stables itself is basic but has everything you need and is clean and modern. The patio area and BBQ are fantastic and look out over the countryside – because the BBQ is sheltered it also means you can save a bit of cash by cooking for yourself even if it's raining. Although it's kind of in the middle of nowhere, which means it's wonderfully peaceful, it's also just on the edge of the New Forest and and a great base for exploring nearby towns. We also took advantage of Bagnum Riding Stables in Ringwood where we did an hour and a half hack which was fantastic. In all, a brilliant relaxing mini break!

“A great weekend”

Thanks to Julie and Simon for a great weekend! The kitchenette allowed us to choose whether we wanted to stay in or eat out and we were able to relax in the comfortable living area. Great location for a base for exploring the new forest. We managed to find pubs with very good food not far away. Would definately recommend the stables.

“Perfect location to experience the New Forest”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I stayed here in April for an anniversary celebration with my boyfriend -we had a lovely weekend and the Stables was a big part of that. The house has everything you could need for a short stay, and Julie and Simon were very helpful and accommodating. The resident dog and free range chickens completed the atmosphere - even though we were unfortunate enough to witness a slightly graphic end to one of the chicken's lives thanks to a husky next door...! (I'm sure this doesn't happen every time...)

In addiiton, the village of Ibsley is fantastic - the wild horses and cows roaming around amongst the villagers gave us a whole morning of entertainment! A walk from Ibsley into the New Forest is a must - we walked to Linwood and up to the High Corner Wood (stunning scenery), and came back via Ibsley's little farm shop to collect some goodies for a barbeque to finish the day.

All in all, a great little home from home in a beautiful setting, and comes highly recommended!
