This is a lovely cosy cottage (with the most comfortable pillows ever!), really well placed for Portsmouth and other great places to visit. There's an excellent pub nearby too. Highly recommended.

Nicely set up little converted barn for 2. Well laid out, everything new and clean. Nice location. Thoughtful and helpful owners. Within easy distance of Portsmouth, Arundel and very close to Harting Down.

The cottage was in a rural setting, but close to the local town, Petersfield. Although close to the owners house, we did not feel uncomfortable with this. The cottage itself had everything you could possibly need.

Reviewed by Sylvia, 18th August 2019

A cosy cottage perfect as a base to go out and explore the area but equally perfect to stay at home and just relax. A romantic getaway cottage and certainly one we will be visiting again.

A very comfortable cottage in a great area for visiting the coast, historic properties and gardens, also the South Downs way very close.

The cottage was very comfortable. A real home from home. Immediately felt relaxed. Ideal location for exploring the Downs and coastal areas.

Recently well renovated with all mod cons, excellent heating.

Reviewed by Paul, 6th April 2019

We wanted somewhere to stay in the Petersfield area, as the main reason for the break was to be close enough to visit friends that we had not met with for some years. The big bonus from the week was the really well appointed and run Wrens Cottage, which was excellent. My wife and I have used a lot of 'similar' properties over a number of years. WreRead moren Cottage is one of the two or three best that we have ever rented. Hide

This is a lovely cottage and very warm and comfortable. We appreciated the warm welcome from the owners and the welcome pack to get us started. Despite the weather not being very good we enjoyed our stay and the location was good for exploring Petersfield, South Harting and Uppark House the nearby National Trust Property. We would come back again tRead moreo explore more of the countryside when the weather is better. Hide

We had a wonderful stay! Rebecca was really welcoming and the cottage was not only really clean and comfortable to stay in but also in a great location for exploring Portsmouth and Southampton (both under 1 hour away). Would definitely stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others!

Reviewed by Valerie, 29th September 2018

Wrens Cottage was very well equipped, clean and comfortable and had a useful little outside seating area. It was convenient for Petersfield where there was a lovely lake to walk around just outside the town. There was a large Tesco not very far away too. It was also comvenient for Portsmouth Park & Ride, South Downs walks and Queen Elizabeth CointrRead morey Park. The owners were friendly and helpful. Hide

Our cottage was wonderful and so homely and comfortable. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Beautiful traditional interior with parking and outside courtyard to chill with a glass of bubbly. The views and places to visit was fantastic. Welcome was so friendly and appreciated.
