Why Victoria Cobden chose Petersfield
Westbury Manor Farm was bought by Mr and Mrs Cobden snr in 1973 and the family have lived there ever since. The Stables are owned by their eldest son Simon and his wife Victoria - they were converted from stables to a luxury holiday cottage in 2012. It is lovely to live on a farm in a rural setting but also have all the amenities you could possibly need just a few miles away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Stables are on the edge of a working farm and whilst guests must be aware farms can be dangerous places due to tractors and machinery, there is the opportunity to see newborn lambs and calves at certain times of the year. Lovely walking area within the South Downs National Park. The Stables have been converted to a luxury standard but retain the character of the Victorian building

A delightful holiday retreat.
Great communication from Victoria prior to arrival and we arrived at the property to find everything was exactly as advertised. The cottage is absolutely lovely and spotlessly clean. All towels and bed linen were supplied and clean and fresh, a good stock of toiletries and toilet rolls, milk, sausages, bacon and wine in the fridge and lovely homemade cupcakes. Victoria came over to make sure that everything was alright and made us feel extremely welcome. We have stayed at different properties in the past but this is a cut above the rest. We LOVED it. We will definitely be returning. We came with our five year old son and little dog and our little boy was given a ride on the tractor at the farm, by the owner and felt really special. Really private, table and chairs outside where we sat most evenings enjoying a G&T. We highly recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed. 5 STAR ALL ROUND.
Hampshire Farm Cottage Stay
We had a wonderful time staying at the cottage which is on a working farm which our 3 year old son totally loved! I'm from Hampshire so it was wonderful to be back 'home' and to be deep in the heart of the beautiful countryside in West Meon. The cottage was perfect for our young family and they had everything we needed for the children including tractors and farm animals much to their delight! The hosts were so lovely and made us feel very at home and were excellent to work with, accommodating an early check in and even bringing us delicious treats from the local shops to welcome us! We'll certainly be back for another stay on the farm.
The cottage is cozy and beautiful. Victoria left fresh eggs and milk and sausages for our arrival, which was great and much appreciated. The family chatted with us and answered questions, and Victoria made brownies for us. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bathroom was spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location
Victoria was very helpful before and during our stay. The welcome package including delicious cake was a very nice touch. The cottage is perfect and exactly what 4 friends from London having a wknd away in the countryside wanted. It is clean, spacious yet cozy, well equipped and best of all dog friendly. My little puppy loved it and loved meeting the animals on the farm. Great location, we had some nice walks and pub lunches and had a lovely afternoon at the village fete. Definitely plan to return. Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfectly located to visit all our family and friends. We especially enjoyed visiting with the farm animals every day.
Lovely weekend break
A great place for us with the kids and dog to explore the South downs.
Lovely local pub within walking distance and a small shop and butcher. When we arrived there was bread, milk and eggs provided.
Would stay again 😀�
