Heidi and Chris were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived at their lovely home. The barn was very cosy and had all we needed for our great week away. Ideally located, we weren't far from all the New Forest 'action'. We chose to cram in as much of the beautiful sights as we could, including eating out at the local watering holes recommended by our hosts (many thanks Heidi)! These were all affordable and the quality was great. Heidi and Chris clearly lead very full lives (!) but they somehow keep enough in reserve to ensure their 'house guests' are happy. We were and you will be too.
My wife and I were looking for a nice, friendly and convenient place to stay for a few weeks. We cant believe how lucky we have been find "The Orchard Barn".
Lovely clean tidy and cosy place to stay in a excellent setting in beautiful private grounds. The cherry on the cake though was Heidi and Chris the owners. Heidi was so friendly, helpful, cheering and wanting to assist us in having a great stay. We can not say how relaxing it was to discuss the holiday plans with Heidi who was always smiling, helpful and friendly.
Thank You Very Much from both Roy and Cath.
Hope to visit again soon.
A wonderfully converted barn conversion that provided us with the most peaceful and relaxing retreat. Heidi and Chris have provided all that can be asked to make the barn feel like a home for the period of your stay and were quick to offer anything else that was required (we didn't need anything they hadn't thought of).
If you do fancy leaving at any point, there is a well thought out and handy guide provided which enabled us to explore local villages, beaches, pubs and of course the forest with ease. We were lucky and managed to get a table for lunch each day but ld recommend booking as places were having to turn people away at peak times.
Beautifully presented and wonderfully hosted, the barn offers indoor and outdoor space that you can truly 'take a break'. We would visit again in heartbeat. Thankyou.
Also, lunch at the Rose and Thistle is a must!
Me and my partner wanted a little get away somewhere peaceful and had a lovely sounding. Hedi and Chris were welcoming, kind and helpful. I would recommend this stay if anyone wanted time away alone, for some space with lovely country walks and a nice little village near by. We had a lovely stay and will 100% be going back. Thank you :)
Wonderful barn conversion. A lot of care was given to make sure we had a lovely stay. We were even given a picnic set to borrow! The large bed was very comfortable and the hot shower welcome after a long day walking. In the late afternoon we came back and had a BBQ outside the barn. We will definitely be back next year.
