The hosts, Wendy and Phil are friendly, helpful and professional. The barn is delightful. It is set in the host’s very large garden, is spacious, thoughtfully decorated, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is well equipped for a self catering holiday, with all of the necessary crockery, glasses and utensils as well as a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. In the bedroom there is a comfortable double bed, and the ensuite shower is perfect. There is a very pleasant private patio that looks onto the garden and the paddock beyond. The ambience is peaceful, providing an opportunity to relax and unwind. There is on site parking. On arrival you receive a welcome package comprising yoghurts, milk, jam and butter, fresh bread, croissants, biscuits and fruit. Tea, coffee and sugar are also provided. Around the corner there is an interesting farm shop and, just a fifteen minute walk away, there is a country pub, The Yew Tree, where the meals are simply delicious. Little Banks Barn is the perfect venue for exploring the New Forest.
This was the perfect base for our 3 night stay to the New Forest! The cottage was immaculate, cosy and beautifully decorated, the welcome package was a lovely touch as well.
The New forest is on the doorstep and you have everything you need locally.
Wendy and Phil are lovely and not intrusive at all, they just make sure you are all ok, Dotty was a pleasure to meet too :)
Wendy, thank you. And we will definitely be back if in the New Forest in the future!
Wendy and Phil were such great hosts! The barn was so homely and cosy and close to great pubs and cafes! we hope to be back very soon
It was one of the nicest breaks we ve had peaceful,comfortable with all the homely touches perfect. The new forest right on the doorstep absolutely amazing we would definately visit again !
Spent a couple of nights here with my Dad whilst birdwatching at Blashford Lakes. The barn is lovely, tastefully furnished and comfortable with a great little breakfast terrace that we made the most of due to the sunny weather! Wendy was a very friendly and welcoming host. There is only one bathroom which is en suite which can be a bit inconvenient if you are sleeping on the (very comfortable) pull out but overall, highly recommended.
Fantastic place - hosts Wendy and Phil were incredibly welcoming. Would highly recommend for a relaxing stay on the edge of the New Forest
