|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This very large New Forest Cottage is perfect for a large group of family or friends to spend a weekend or short break together. All guests can dine at one big table together, and relax in the huge vaulted lounge afterwards. The building is full of character and will make a memorable stay for everyone in the group. The location in the heart of Lyndhurst, in the middle of the New Forest, could not be more convenient.
"Just wanted to say what a lovely stay we had at The Old Stables last week. The cottage was warm, cosy and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and lacked nothing. All the appliances were in working order and the location in Lyndhurst was superb. Everybody in the group said the beds were very comfortable and the open fire added a great ambience at the end of the day. We shall certainly recommend this cottage to other large groups seeking a break away."
"Just a quick email to let you know we had an amazing 60th birthday weekend. Any worries that we had were immediately gone the moment we stepped inside The Old Stables. After our initial visit last May to look around, it was good to see the alteration and decoration that has happened in the meantime. Not only that, we were lucky to have all the new crockery and glasses, plenty of hot water, cozy beds and good heating. All our guests were very impressed and I can guarantee you will have plenty of recommendations."
"The Old Stables is a fantastic place to stay with a large group. Being so close to both Lyndhurst and the beautiful New Forest there is tons to do right on your doorstep making for an unbeatable location. The accommodation is comfortable and the living room and kitchen a lovely mix of spacious but cosy. Can't recommend it enough, we had a fantastic stay!"
"Spacious and sociable house for groups or families right on the doorstep of quaint Lyndhurst shops, cafes and restaurants and the New Forest National Park. An abundance of bedrooms, cinema in the lounge, piano by a roaring fire and long kitchen table fit for a banquet!"
"Thanks for a good week at the Old Stables. It was clean and spacious with a well-equipped kitchen (and a constant supply of hot water). It was such a cold week, and we enjoyed the log fire every evening! The big screen was great for watching films together. It was also an excellent location, being just off Lyndhurst High Street, and there was something for everyone (aged 5 months to 86!)."
“Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at The Old Stables last weekend, the accommodation was perfect along with the weather and we managed to go kayaking and play rounders at Boltons Bench”
“Thanks to you and your team for all your help in booking the Old Stables in Lyndhurst over the New Year's period. Everything was just as the brochure suggested, and everyone had a fantastic time.”
We had an absolutely brilliant time!! The cottage was exactly what was needed; spacious yet cosy with everything you could need within. We would definitely use this again for further meetings/team building going forward. Great place, highly recommend!

The village centre location is ideal for large group accommodation, any of the pubs, restaurants, shops or cafés are accessible in minutes without the need to travel out in cars. Although the village centre is prominent and lively there is hardly any development beyond this and you are able to walk straight out into the New Forest National Park in minutes, rather than needing cars for access to forest walks. An easy place to walk along to is Bolton’s Bench, where you can walk for miles into the forest, play a game of rounders in summer or go sledging or snowboarding in winter!
The dining for everybody at one table makes this large cottage a great place to have a special birthday or other celebration meal. Book the chef’s team for the night and celebrate with the finest local seasonal food prepared with passion and presented beautifully at the table, with no washing up to do afterwards or any large wine bill – just bring your own drinks. No need to worry about taxis home – you are all already there! Just retire to the lounge or your room in your own time.
Until just over a decade ago, The Old Stables was derelict, with the roof removed and part of the end fallen down, but had all the original Stable features intact. During the conversion we reinstated the roof and formed the internal layout and floors, opening up the large fireplace and reusing the stable setts outside. The cast iron stable divisions were used as the banisters and all the large beams, A-frames and other timberwork were retained and left exposed. The feature round windows remain, along with all the original character. Outside appears exactly as it would have done when the occupants were horses rather than holidaymakers, the only additions being the discreet conservation rooflights which provide plenty of light to the glorious spaces inside.
