    We had a lovely break at Yew Tree Cottage, and the owners Nigel and Tessa gave us a very warm welcome. We arrived to find a scrumptious cake and bottle of wine, and the gesture was much appreciated. We had our dog with us, so to find a lane running alongside the property and leading to open farmland was a real bonus as we could go for a walk straight from the property. We met a couple of local residents whilst walking there, and all were very friendly and paused for a chat. Cheriton itself is a very pretty village and has a shop for essentials - certainly handy. We would definitely recommend The Hinton Arms for a meal, we took my 85 year old Aunt there for lunch which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The pub is very dog friendly, the staff were delightful and the food was really good, what more could you want. We spent most of our time visiting family and friends in the area, and the cottage was a lovely base, perfectly situated for our needs. We could also recommend a visit to Danebury hill fort just outside Stockbridge, very interesting, wonderful walks especially if you have a dog, and the most amazing views - really well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to have fabulous weather for the entire trip, which really was the icing on the cake, and we hope to return at some point.

    Yew tree cottage is very well equipped and most comfortable. The cottage is well situated to explore the area. The owners are most helpful and informative.

    A nice cottage and lovely hosts. Although dogs are allowed you must be aware there is no garden. If your dogs love other dogs you'll be OK with the frequent visits from the gorgeous two resident dogs. The kitchen is very basic - be aware that the microwave/grill/oven is at floor level so if you have any back or knee issues you will struggle to cook safely. We did enjoy our stay though and the power shower was 10/10!!
