About this listing

Pretty cabin tucked away in a quiet walled garden close to Titchfield

The space

Magic Cottage is a pretty wooden cabin in the peaceful walled garden of our 16th Century stable block house.

It can be made up with a very comfy super kingsize bed or twins.

The cabin catches the morning sun, so it's lovely to open up the doors and let the light flood in, or sit outside on the decking and enjoy the sunshine.

Magic Cottage has a seating area with sofa, coffee table and TV with Freeview. It has a microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster and sink in the kitchen area and a gas barbecue with side burner on the deck but no full cooking facilities. So you can keep some wine and nibbles cool in the fridge, put together a picnic, warm up a ready meal, or cook up a barbecue or full English for breakfast, but not rustle up a slap up meal.

It also has an en suite shower room, and a terrace to enjoy the sun in the mornings, as well, of course, as a very comfy bed (superkingsize or two singles if you would like it set up as twins).

The cabin is built from recycled materials and everything we do follows an eco philosophy, including organic shampoo, shower gel and soap.

The essentials are there for when you arrive - tea, coffee, sugar, milk for a cuppa, and oil, salt and pepper for cooking.

For chilly weather, there is a really efficient wood burning stove style electric heater in the cabin that takes no time to heat up the room. It makes it really cosy, and gives off a warm flickering glow to create a lovely atmosphere, especially with the lights down low. It even has a remote control so you can turn it on from your bed in the morning, so it is lovely and warm before you step from under the covers, and off after you climb in at night! In the winter we also put in a small oil filled electric radiator for background heat, which can be left on low all the time if it’s chilly.

We don't provide breakfast, but there is a good little shop under 10 minutes' walk or two minutes' drive away open from 7am til 11pm. It's a Co-op with with fresh fruit and veg, meat, wine, beer and most things you could need for your stay. Even fresh croissants baked on-site every morning, which you can bring back warm from the oven. The gas bbq is easy to flash up and cook whatever you fancy for breakfast.

There are Chineese and Indian takeaways that deliver, and fish and chip shops to eat on the deck or take to the beach.

There are also a couple of good pubs nearby, and some excellent cafes (we are coffee feinds, and can point you in the right direction for the best coffee).

You can also drive along the seafront to Gosport and catch the ferry to Portsmouth where you can visit the HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose at the Historic Naval Dockyard and museums, or visit Gunwharf Quays with restaurants, bars, cinemas, bowling and outlet shopping. Much better than driving into Portsmouth, and more of an 'adventure'.

We also run a kitesurfing school, so this is the perfect place to come and stay for a kitesurfing break or course.

We have a portacot available for little ones, or you can book our glamping tent next to Magic Cottage if you have more in your family/group.

Our standard check in time is after 3pm and check out before 11am. Though we do try and be flexible if we can, so sometimes you may be able to arrive earlier or leave later, but please can you arrange with us in advance.

Please note that we spend the UK winter in New Zealand (see our other listings!). Our neighbours manage Magic Cottage for us, so it is still available to the same high standard. However, it may mean that I can't answer questions or enquiries during the UK daytime, as I will be in NZ asleep! I will get back to you when I wake up (UK evening time). So please don't think I am ignoring you, or that Magic Cottage is unavailable. Of course, you can still book in the normal way over airbnb, and I will accept your booking when I come online.

I hope you can come and stay!

We like to maintain the peace and quiet. Please can you respect this and our neighbours' peace and quiet too!

There is an extra £15 fee for dogs payable during your stay. Please give to us if we see you, and if not, leave in the cabin when you go. We ask that you bring your own bed for them and keep them off the furnishings and under your control in the cabin and garden at all times, and that you pick up any poop in the garden straight away please. Magic Cottage has it's own screened off area of private garden, but you walk through our garden to reach the cabin, and you can access our garden from yours. Please can you keep your dog within sight and within your area of the garden at all times.

A quiet,scenic little spot that was made even nicer by the beautiful garden and hammock to allow us to fully enjoy the sunny weather. It is quiet and a real break from city life if that's what your looking for!

This is a little piece of paradise, it's so quiet - just you and the birds! I stayed for work so was impressed with the full signal and fast wifi. Easy to check in and out. Would def recommend if you are fed up with normal hotel rooms
