The barn was great for us, lots of social space and a well equipped kitchen. It was very clean (other than the flies!) and we enjoyed the outdoor space as much as the indoor space. For driving it is conveniently located to lots of lovely villages and restaurants. There are plenty of take out who deliver. There is a short walk down a pretty fast roaRead mored before you can get to the public walks through the woods, and the road got busy in the mornings, but not early enough to wake us. A lovely place. Hide

The property was preseneted to a high standard. Having 3 teenage boys, the fact that all bedroom have an ensuite was fantastic. The raised balcony area was nice to sit and relax. In addation the outdoor area was well maintained, safe and secure for children and dogs. The kitchen was well equiped, you could have baked a cake if you had wished. It isRead more nicely located to the New Forest and Moors country park, and other places of interest we found were around 30 mins drive away. Hide

The barn was lovely. It was clean, warm and comfortable. We were four generations ranging from 2 to 90 with a dog and the house and garden were ideal.
