About the neighbourhood
Enjoy the countryside: Opportunities for walking, horse riding and cycling are abundant in the Test Valley with highlights being the 44-mile Test Way and the annual Test Valley Tour. The Old Barns is located in the heart of the Test Valley with the Test Way on it's doorstep it is ideal for country pursuits. The Test Way was originally a canal, then later a railway, this was removed in the mid 60's and is now a wonderful walk, cycle, bridal way that runs for 44 miles (from Inkpen to Southampton). There are many fantastic footpaths and cycleway in the area. With the clear chalk streams the River Test and its tributaries on our doorstep, famous for its fly fishing with an abundance of brown trout, rainbow trout, grayling and salmon. We can provide you with links for places to go fishing....
How to get there
We are located just of the A3057 (Stockbridge to Romsey Road) 1.5 miles South of Kings Somborne in the pretty hamlett of Brook. Budget airlines fly into Southampton airport or Bournmouth airport. The nearest Trainstation is at Dunbridge (1.5 miles away) or Romsey (4 miles away) and Winchester Train Station and Bus Station is a 20 minute taxi journey away.
