This B&B was the highlight of a weekend planned to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. It was booked many months previously and, with the help of Ceanna at Parsonage Barn, it was kept a secret from my husband. Ceanna made us welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms were extremely comfortable and well presented. It was also a bonus to have a sitting room for our exclusive use during our stay - particularly as my husband and sister-in-law were able to watch the 6 nations rugby on Saturday afternoon. I enjoyed a wander in the lovely garden and visiting the horse, donkeys, chicken & sheep in Ceanna's fields. Parsonage Barn is in a very peaceful and quiet setting and was ideal after a day at Marwell Wildlife, about a 30-40 minute drive away. On Ceanna's recommendation we ate at the George Inn in East Meon and there, too, we received a warm welcome, not always experienced in small village pubs. Apart from the outdoor animals, we also very much enjoyed spending time with the cats - Monty & Mouse and the dogs Bella, Hattie & Archie. All in all a very happy weekend!
