Holiday Rental House
The Old Barns is a stunning barn conversion consisting of 4 one bedroom holiday cottages all interlinked via the balconies. All the cottages are upside down taking advantage of the views of the Test Valley. Upstairs all cottages have their own vaulted open plan lounge/kitchen/diner leading out onto the south facing balcony. The balconies all have a gate so they can either be separate or all link together. Downstairs all cottages have their own period bathroom and their own bedroom with either a double, king or superking size bed. Its the ideal place for friends and family to get away together giving you your own space as well as time together. An additional sofa bed in the bedroom for up to 2 children can be made available in the largest cottage (Damson) for an additional fee.

Well behaved dogs welcome for a small additional fee (dogs cannot be left unattended at any time). Plenty of parking. Fantastic choice of pubs and restaurants locally and lots to see and do. Please note that from the beginning of 2018 until the end of March 2018 we are carrying out building works on our other barn and there maybe some noise and building materials. Please feel free to ask about the works to determine if you feel it will effect the enjoyment of your stay.More

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
