“Happy Holiday with great weather, at great location, had a great time.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Helen & myself, together with our dogs had a wonderful stay at "The Old Barns". Lovely walks, with pubs located just about right to refuel. Enjoyed the fishing at the local trout lakes. Sarah & Rob are really good hosts with helpful local knowledge to enhance your stay. Would definitely recommend "the Old Barns".

Lovely private setting in courtyard. Generous decor and creature comforts. Deluxe beds and linen. Beautiful bathroom and tub. Fabulous open plan living space in loft area. Loads of room. Kitchen fully equipped. Spacious grounds for energetic children and a stones throw from Test Way for walking/cycling. This was second visit with 3 children and will return again. Highly recommend.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was our third visit to The Old Barns and we enjoyed every minute. Great accommodation, very clean and spacious, and wonderful hosts. The local area has great walks from the door step and it is very easy to access the New Forest/Test Valley. We will return very soon.

“Lovely escape”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

A lovely little place, nestled in the test valley approx 8 miles from the new forest. Some great local walks and plenty more within a short drive. Great accommodation with full kitchen etc, very comfortable bed and spacious entry for muddy feet. One large barn divided into 4 apartments. Although there are close neighbors we didn't hear anything. Would definitely recommend.

“Excellent place just to get away!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The Barn was perfect and catered to our every need! The apartment is very clean with lots of space and light. The bathtub was amazing and I had one of the best baths in my entire life! The barn is a little hard to find if you go by Satnav in the dark. However the owners were perfect and helped us find our way in seconds. The fresh eggs left were very tasty and a lovely touch.

The owners were perfect and welcoming even fitting to our arrival needs due to work commitments. They were so friendly and on site. However I must add that they are close enough should you need them. But far enough away to give you your own space.

One of the bet getaways we have ever had! Thank you for having us!

“Little Gem in a gorgeous location”
Reviewed 20 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I stayed at The Old Barns at the end of October with my mum and we were very impressed with the accomodation. We stayed in Cottage 1 which was the bigger of the cottages available. It was spacious and homely and the decor was to a high standard. Especially loved the bed and the bath was amazing! The views from the cottage were lovely and nice to wake up to every morning. We came with our 11 year old Golden Retriever and there were plenty of walks nearby for us to take him on along the Test Way as well as plenty of dog friendly pubs which was a massive bonus. Would recommend The Three Cups Inn in Stockbridge for food, a bit pricey but definitely worth every penny. The Owners were very welcoming and we even enjoyed a night with them cooking on their pizza oven which was fab! Will think of you guys when we are next staying in the area.
