“What a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

Friends of our recommended this B&B and we were not disappointed. The rooms were clean and homely with everything thought of and catered for. Comfy bed and lots of space for clothes etc. breakfast was excellent wether you wanted a full English or just cereals etc. Julie and Simon were friendly and welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely stay again.

Overall the best place we have found to stay in the area. We stayed in one of three self contained apartments at the rear of the main house which were previously the old dairy sheds. Spacious en-suite rooms with all mod cons. Comfy bed, warm room, tv, lots of drawers for clothes and wardrobe with hangers. En-suite is a wet room that is really well done. Breakfast is served in the main house just across a gravel drive and is eaten with the other guests and is a lovely time to meet people and it is surprising how quickly friendships are formed. The breakfast itself is a feast. All tastes are catered for. The full English is enough to keep you going through lunchtime and onto your next evening meal. Julie the hostess is always available to help with any issues and if you like or play golf you will have a new friend for life. Thank you to Julie and her family for such an enjoyable stay and to our new friends which we met over the fun breakfasts. Best way to start the day. The only suggestion I could make to improve our visit would be to have the sign outside the house at the roadside lit as it is quite easy to miss when driving along the road. :-)

Stayed at the Olde Barn for 3 Nights, the rooms are well maintained clean and everything is to hand. The rooms have been designed with great thought and attention to detail. Have stayed here before and will again, a great starting point for the coast or going in to the Forest. From full English to just eggs on toast, great breakfast.

We have stayed here 3 times. The Olde Barns hosts are delightful. The rooms are spotlessly clean. Beds are comfortable. Tea and coffee facilities in each room. Breakfast is good. Bedrooms quiet due to being a distance from the main road.

I stayed the Olde Barn for a quiet, romantic getaway with my boyfriend and it delivered! The accommodation is clean and cosy. With lots of lovely touches such as magazines, DVD’s, a varied selection of tea and coffees, and I even had hairspray and make up remover provided which is great to know if i ever forget anything!

The breakfast was lovely on both mornings, it was cooked fresh and to order. We asked Julie (the owner) what to do and see in the local area, Julie was very helpful and full of ideas. Nothing seemed to be too much! All in all it was a great stay, in a great locations with a couple of pubs within walking distance and local towns in either direction within a 10 minute drive.

I will definitely be visiting again.

Thank you for such a lovely relaxing stay!

Stayed in the Family room at the Olde barn for a week. Had a wonderful stay in this charming B&B, clean, tidy, comfortable and welcoming.
Lovely location and perfect for exploring the New Forest
The breakfasts are amazing and set us up for the rest of the day.
We hope to be back to stay with you again soon.

We stayed here for two nights. Clean, quiet and a fantastic breakfast! Good location for access to Lymington and its surroundings. Will definitely return for a stay when we're down this way again.
