About Victoria Cobden
Westbury Manor Stables are owned by Simon and Victoria Cobden. They live a couple of hundred yards from the Stables so are available to answer any queries you may have whilst you are on holiday. Simon is a farmer whilst Victoria helps on the farm and looks after their two children and The Stables
Victoria Cobden purchased this Cottage in 1970
Why Victoria Cobden chose West Meon
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

Lovely stay in the South Downs
We had a lovely stay in West Meon with Victoria. A peaceful place in restored stables. Lots of space for the family with good kitchen facilities. Such a nice surprise to see a welcome hamper, which also led us to make further purchases from the local butcher. Thank you for making us so welcome.
Thank you Jody - hope you had a safe trip home 😊
Lovely cottage in a lovely village
Lovely cottage ideal for exploring the South Downs way and Winchester. Great welcome pack of food and wine. No garden but a courtyard for sitting out in. You are surrounded by farm buildings but that was no problem for us. The owners were all very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for a peaceful getaway
Very peaceful with nice countryside around!
Lovely friendly owner, extra home baked treats on arrival were very much appreciated after a long journey. Very clean property and a pleasant stay.
Everything you could hope and expect
Beautiful peaceful location and cottage really well equipped. Hosts were lovely.
Beautiful Cottage in the heart of the country!
What an amazing little treasure of a place. From the warm welcome from Victoria and her family; with the welcome cakes and being shown around the farm meeting the new lambs and calves, to the very comfortable stay in the cottage itself. A perfect place for us as a family to relax and attend a local wedding. The cottage is very spacious with everything you need and in a great location for walks and a small walk to the lovely local pub The Thomas Lord. A Wonderful place that I would highly recommend.
Great little cottage in heart of South Downs
We (2 adults, 1 5 year old) stayed here for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Victoria was really helpful throughout the booking and checking in / checking out process. The cottage is a converted barn in a working farm (which makes it quite nice for children as they can see the farm animals). When we arrived (quite late) we had a lovely food "hamper" waiting for us, which was a nice surprise. The cottage is clean and has everything you need. It's also very warm (which was great after a day out walking in the rain!).
There plenty of nature reserves to go walking - would definitely recommend Old Winchester Hill and West Meon Valley Trail. There's a Waitrose in Petersfield if you want to get groceries and plenty of pubs within few minutes driving.
