“Lovely accommodation - maybe a little more privacy needed though!”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Lovely accommodation and Anthea was always helpful when contacting her.
My only gripe was that whilst staying at Morningside (we also hired The Granary) and using the shower (amazing bathroom), there was very limited curtains/netting on the windows to save your dignity. Whilst showering I had to cover myself up as they started to mow the lawn. My sister was also caught when other visitors at the accommodation walked in what we had presumed was the garden of Morningside. So our only feedback would be to provide wider curtains/netting so that we are not caught in the nudey by other visitors if they wander past!

Heading to the south of England from central Scotland, we needed something to accommodate various family members who would all meet up for the weekend, travelling from all parts of the UK.

Easy to find if using the owners website directions and only minutes off the motorway network. Only a few minutes drive from Romsey so eating out and shopping were easy.

Lovely old building with loads of character. Naturally one sacrifices some of the latest and most modern touches to keep in character with the age and nature of the old farm house, but in reality the character of the building and lovely gardens more than compensate.

Good off road parking in the farm yard, which would accommodate a fleet of cars.

Friendly folk very willing to help out and with good local knowledge.

Bottom line, would we go back...
Yes.

Fantastic place, we found our hosts to be delightful. We stayed in "Morningside" a self catering barn conversion that was stunning inside and out. Lots of olde world charm with all mod cons, the huge bathroom certainly had wow factor (bigger than the blue banana). The weather was very warm during our stay so the French doors leading onto the wonderful grounds with garden furniture was an added bonus. We will definitely return

Stayed 4 nights in The Granary as self-catering, paying £90 a night. No-one there to greet us when we arrived sometime after 5pm; had to search to find the key in an outbuilding. Expected a high standard of kitchen facilities for that money, but equipment was all old and not particularly efficient. No tea towels or anything to mop up spills. No coffee except a few sachets. Only one cereal bowl! Used towels had been left in one of the bedrooms along with fresh ones. Nowhere to put any clothing, except on hooks behind doors, or two small drawers in one of the bedrooms.....we needed to have taken clothes hangers. Contact with the owners happened briefly when they returned home on our first day, everso briefly when we left and a chance meeting one morning to ask where we were going for the day. The unit was not serviced all the time we were there. Even our bill was left behind the knocker on the door in the pouring rain!
We managed, but only because we were efficient and knew that we wouldn't go back. We've stayed in cheaper, friendlier and far better self-catering. For the money we spent here, we could have gone into a good quality B&B elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you are self-catering,find somewhere else. If you want friendly service, this isn't the place...

We have just returned from Hampshire and stayed at Ranvilles Farmhouse near Romsey for 2 nights. We had travelled down from Lancashire for a wedding anniversary in the area.
Charming host and hostess who were most helpful with anything we needed. They were great with suggestions of places to go and the directions to get there.
The house and gardens just delightful to see. Would certainly recommend it as a superb place to stay. Breakfasts so good too.

We have just returned from a 3 day break with my parents and 3 year old son. We could not have been made more welcome. The farmhouse itself is beautiful, around 500 years old and full of character with exquisite decor. The location is great, along a dual carriageway with quick access to the local town, Romsey. Though it's close to the road, it's very peaceful and surrounded by fields and stunning gardens.

We stayed in Morningside which is a self contained, self catering barn fully equipped with all the amenities you could wish for; dishwasher, washing machine, Sky tv, DVD player etc. again the decor was stunning and the bathroom had the 'wow factor' with a large double walk in shower, Stand alone bath and double sinks.

I'm a little confused as to some of the previous reviews as we found our hosts; Bill and Anthea to be lovely, warm characters of whom, nothing was too much trouble. We were welcome into their living quarters to let my son see some new puppies and they would happily spend time chatting with you and enquiring all about your stay.

Breakfast was superb. Home cooked, fresh local produce, with eggs from the chickens they keep. This was served in a beautiful dining room, with a great choice of fresh breads, cereals, yogurts and a delicious homemade rhubarb compote.

We all agreed, it was the little touches which made this B&B stand out. A water bottle in a drawer in my parents room, a little plate with some apples and a knife in the room. Our barn was self catering and yet we had a cupboard with breakfast cereals, coffee, milk and a wonderful selection of teas. A wallet full of DVD's to watch. On leaving, Anthea kindly gave me some home grown rhubarb as I'd said I loved her compote.

Altogether a wonderful break, absolutely made by stunning surroundings and lovely hosts. We look forward to returning.

We stayed over Easter weekend, at very late notice (booked on Maundy Thursday).

When enquiring about places to eat in the local area that might also accept dogs not only was an excellent suggestion made but also an offer - that was immediately acted upon - to book us a table. Excellent suggestions were made for dog walking and 'day out' locations.

The room was bright, immaculately kept and we even got the hotel standard of a 'room spruce' each morning. Breakfast was copious, delicious and cooked exactly to order and our hosts couldn't have been more accommodating.

We would highly recommend a stay here. The only downfall is the fact one can not walk easily into Romsey - owing to the stretch of dual carriageway that lies between the two - but then it is a very short taxi ride from the town centre... Book a stay at Ranvilles and I fail to see how you could be disappointed!

Room Tip: The fact dogs are welcome is great if you have one, but you wouldn't know if it you don't, s...
