Very cosy cottage with great local amenities and walking opportunities. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Everything clean, tidy and comfortable. Good local pub and other eateries not far to travel. Loved Winchester and the coast at Emsworth.
Beautiful barn conversion. Everywhere is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The barn was wonderfully warm and very comfortable. Location is great for exploring the surrounding area. We are now rested and restored, ready to return to reality.
Shafts Barn was perfect for us and made our bank holiday foray into a real pleasure. The Barn itself is very well equipped with thoughtful touches, comfortable beds and an excellent shower. The well equipped kitchen worked well, the lounge area comfortable and the outside space lush and well kept. The whole Barn was very clean, too - and the owners were more than happy to accommodate our request for non-feather pillows. West Meon is also the perfect base - a lovely village in its own right, it was ideally located for Portsmouth (first visit - great place!) and a day trip to the Isle of Wight from a tranquil and secluded country base. Perfect.
We had a lovely stay at Shaft Barn. It is a well decorated and fully equipped cottage. A nice private garden with enough toys for our two young boys.The owners, Phill and Jill, are really friendly and helpful. The surrounding is great, with a lovely village (with al the basic needs provided) and within car distance you find Winchester or a nice sandy beach.
We definitely recommend this cottage!
We had a wonderful week in this delightful cottage. It is well equipped catering for your every need. Very tastefully decorated and furnished throughout and has the most comfortable beds, we all slept like logs. We took my elderly Mother with us and the fact it is all on one level made it very easy for her. Phil and Jill were wonderful hosts and made us so welcome when we arrived and it was nice to know that they were just at the bottom of the drive if we needed anything. We had nice weather but one evening was particularly gloomy and we lit the log burner making us feel very cosy.
The location is perfect in a beautiful village with a well stocked shop with a café at the rear, the local pub and a butchers shop all just a few minute’s walk down the road. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the drive where you can catch a bus into Winchester. Anybody wishing to stay in this area should give this accommodation serious consideration.
A very homely and well equipped property with some lovely touches, and extremely kind and attentive (thought discreet) owners. The barn is set in a really nice village amidst some stunning countryside.There's a village shop within walking distance - it has some very friendly staff. There are excellent road links to Winchester, the New Forest and West Sussex. The George pub in the neighbouring village of East Meon provided a very good meal. We'd thoroughly recommend the barn with the slight proviso that the dining area might be a bit tight for four large adults - but there again - it all depends how friendly you are with each other.
We spent New Years in this little cottage situated in the picture perfect village of West Meon.
The cottage was clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were heavenly.
My children (2, 6 and 8 years old) were thrilled to find an abundance of age appropriate toys and games behind the sofa all in perfect condition (and frankly more fun than ours at home). There was a go-cart in the shed and a lovely big lawn to play on. We roasted marshmallows in the fire each night.
The village could not be more picturesque, with its local store, butcher and fabulous local pub, and this surrounded by lovely country side where we enjoyed a 5k walk with the children.
A perfect get-away - we will definitely come back to this heavenly little cottage.
