“The Mews was comfortable and had all facilities that we needed.”
the owners left a lovely cake and fresh flowers as a treat. The bed was comfy and had fab bedding on. The only down side was the sofa (sofa bed) needed the seat cushions boosted a bit as they were a bit saggy.

“We really enjoyed our holiday.”
The cottage made a great base for exploring Hampshire and there were lots of walks nearby.- Miss Bryson, October 2020
“We feel lucky to have "fallen on our feet" at Sykes Cottage, having only the photograph and description to inform us and not knowing about the immediate area.”
(I was brought up in Guildford so had some idea.) We found Bentley to be a delightful village with lots of footpaths, interesting buildings and a basic shop. Our hosts were charming and made us most welcome, coping kindly when our car alarm went off. The cottage was equipped with absolutely everything a couple could have wanted or needed on a break like this. The decor is tasteful and very comfortable, so we would have no hesitation in recommending a stay. The bijou kitchen means that only one person can cook at a time but that's a nice excuse for drinking a glass of wine while you wait! Thank you very much.- Mrs Newbury, September 2020
“We spent 3 nights at Pittersfield Mews Cottage in Bentley and thoroughly enjoyed our stay discovering places in Hampshire and Surrey.”
The cottage is charming and cosy, with spacious upstairs area. We found it extremely clean and were pleased with the facilities made available. It is easy to access from A31 and offers plenty of parking space. Off a small lane, above the main village, it is quiet and peaceful. As part of the cottage, there is a small South-facing terrace on the edge of the property's beautiful and large mature garden, where you can relax, read, or eat using the garden table, benches and seats. The owners are charming, helpful and very discreet.- Mrs Rutsaert, September 2020

“Lovely cotage, in a nice quiet area on the edge of village.”
Charming owners, there when you needed them and leaving you alone the rest of the time. Cottage was spacious and nicely furnished. Plenty of parking space and a nice corner of garden with furniture for sitting out. Alas, the booking with Sykes was not the most straightforward, their staff appearing to go out of their way to make life difficult. This is no reflection on the cottage, however- Mr Millar, July 2020
Thank you for your comments.. We are so pleased you had a lovely stay at Mews Cottage. We do not wish to make life difficult and apologise if you felt this was the case. Owner relations

It was extremely clean with facilities that made my stay homely and enjoyable. The hosts were very friendly, extremely hospitable and very helpful. They were keen to ensure my stay was enjoyable.

“It was unclear that I would be charged £25 for laundry.”
This should be a charge that is covered in the rental fee. Other than that, we had a very pleasant stay. It was good to find a place so close to family during the holidays.- Ms Mcmahon, December 2019
The property description clearly states that if required, then an additional charge for the sofa-bed will apply. However, in view of your particular circumstances this charge will not apply and a full refund of the additional charge will be made. Kind Regards. Owner relations
“Stayed for 3 weeks with my wife and found the accommodation first class - Lovely and quiet and with all the facilities we needed.”
Bedroom was a very good size and comfortable and with a village shop and pub just down the road was in an excellent location. Highly recommended !- Mr Pike, November 2019
Thank you for recommending Mews Cottage! Owner relations
“The cottage is peaceful and located close to the owners impressive house and garden.”
The cottage is very well furnished and equipped and it is comfortable. My wife and I have just spent two weeks there and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There is ample off road perking and it is only a few minutes drive to get to the A31. The owners are friendly and were helpful with suggestions of where to visit locally.There are many places of interest fairly nearby, including Jane Austen's cottage and Gilbert White's cottage and museum. The latter was a very interesting place to visit and also had very nice gardens, perfect for the hot weather we enjoyed during our stay. My wife and I travelled just over 300 miles each way to visit Hampshire and found that the cottage made a good base for the places we wanted to visit. There is a shop and a pub in the village and a choice of supermarkets approx. 3 miles away.- Mr Tyson, August 2019
Peacefully located down a country lane in the village of Bentley, just below the church and opposite the vineyard, Mews Cottage, part of the former farm outbuildings, is the perfect retreat for exploring this unspoiled part of the Hampshire / Surrey borders. Standing in the grounds of the owners' imposing country house, the cottage offers the opportunity for rest and relaxation in a gorgeous setting. Enter the cottage into the kitchen /dining area; with a well appointed kitchen offering all the amenities you could need, and a dining table with sufficient space for up to 4 guests. On the first floor you will find a light and spacious living area with sofa (which can be converted into an additional bed charged @ £50.00) if required for extra guest) armchair and flat screen tv.
This leads through to the large bedroom with king size bed and flat screen TV.
The family bathroom has all the usual fixtures, including bath with shower over. Outside there is offstreet parking for 2 cars, and a lovely private seating area, enclosed by box hedging and partly screened by magnificent Flowering Cherry and Judas trees.
For guests of a literary persuasion, Jane Austen's house in Chawton is just 5 miles from the cottage. The stunning RHS gardens at Wisley are about 35 minutes away. We feel that Mews Cottage is perfectly located for a peaceful getaway in this lovely part of the country.

About the location
Farnham 5 miles, Alton 6 miles
Bentley is the first village across the Surrey-Hampshire border, announcing Jane Austin country. As part of the Austin heritage, the first rector of Bentley was Henry Austen, Jane’s brother, who moved into the Rectory in 1824. Another curate, the Rev. Gilbert White of Selborne, was a regular visitor to Marelands, a Georgian house overlooking the river Wey, in the previous century.
Bentley-‘the green in the forest’- dates back to Roman and Saxon times.
The village, which is described by Warner in the 18th century as 'a delightful, pleasant and neat village,' with well planted gardens and hedges of white thorn, lies on the main road from Farnham to Alton, which is supposed to be an ancient Pilgrims' Way leading from Farnham through Bentley and Alton to Winchester. The forest of Alice Holt in the neighbouring parish of Binsted no doubt furnished cover for highwaymen and robbers, who fell upon merchant and pilgrim on their way to Winchester, to shrine or fair. The outlaw Sir Adam Gurdon is said to have frequented this road with his armed band, and to have devastated the surrounding country to the terror of peaceful travellers until his restoration to his estates by King Edward I
The village developed mostly along the ancient road from Winchester to London. Many of the older houses along the post road were smallholders’ farms dating back to the 13thcentury, which were ‘gentrified’ in Regency times. The village claims the oldest 'cruck' cottage in Hampshire (a cruck or crook frame is a curved timber, one of a pair, which supports the roof of a building, used particularly in England. This type of timber framing consists of long, generally naturally curved, timber members that lean inwards and form the ridge of the roof).
The village has a thriving pub and shop. The village was also home for 30 years to Sir Robert Baden- Powell, so it comes as no surprise that scouting thrives in the area.
The hop fields surrounding the village have now become vinyards, producing Jenkyn Place sparkling wine.
The village is situated approximately 4 miles from Alton and Farnham, the village has a bus service and has a mainline station, which commences at Alton and terminates at Waterloo.
For the active members of the parish there is an array of footpaths, Alice Holt forest nearby as well as Birdworld, and the butterfly meadow. The parish has a newly installed adventure playground for the younger children.
