“Wonderful Christmas get away.”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Really relaxing Christmas spent here at the Old Barns. You immediately feel as if you can sell up and move in here. We wanted to get away from all the rush and hassle of Christmas 'holiday' and this was ideal. I imagine Spring, Summer and Autumn are slightly better spent here as you would get longer days to enjoy the countryside and the surrounding area. Everything is catered for, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony chatting to our new temporary neighbours with their dog.
The beds were really comfortable and if we had the same bedding at home we know we would never get up for work. A friendly pub is a short walk away and the locals take time to stop and chat when out and about. Romsey town centre is not far away and I would recommend the White horse http://www.thewhitehorseromsey.co.uk/brasserie-menus#.VKxF3dKsWSo .
Thank you for a wonderful stay

“A great place to stay!”
Reviewed November 18, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My girlfriend and I along with my parents rented 2 of the cottages at the Old Barns for 3 days. The cottages themselves were lovely - very clean, spacious and full of character but with all mod cons! The owners Rob and Sarah are friendly and very welcoming and gave us some great insight in to the local area. I think it's fair to say that they have pretty much thought of everything from their clear instructions for your stay, to the nice touches like Milk and Eggs (laid on the premises!) in the fridge on arrival and everything inbetween!

On top of all of that, the area is beautiful and there is plenty to see and do, especially if you like the outdoors!

A great place to stay for couples, families and pet’s alike! You won’t be disappointed.

“really comfortable & quiet with lovely walks to the pub”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Really comfortable accommodation in the middle of the countryside.
The fresh eggs from the chickens in the field upon arrival was a lovely touch and the milk in the fridge was very welcome.
It was nice to have the luxury of a bath and Sarah and Rob were really helpful in pointing us in the right directions for restaurants, pubs and great walks.
Can't recommend it highly enough

“Great location and lovely accommodation”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in 'Elderberry' cottage for two nights and enjoyed our stay. Sarah was very welcoming and the accommodation was nicely furnished and very clean. Everything we needed for our short stay was provided, the kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom had toiletries.

The Old Barns is off a main road but this wasn't too busy and we didn't hear any noise from it. The Test Way is adjacent to the property and the walk to Kimbridge was lovely.

We would definitely return and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.

“Home from home!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This one bedroom barn conversion is perfect for a short or long stay. We stayed for 4 nights and loved it. It is in a really peaceful area just outside Stockbridge - ideal for a fly fishing trip on the River Test. The kitchen is really well equipped and Sarah thinks of everything from fresh eggs on arrival to ice cubes in the freezer! Sarah and Robert were very welcoming. We will certainly go back. Thank you!

“So relaxing”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for a long weekend in Willow and really enjoyed it. The accommodation was of high quality and had a lovely cosy feel to it. The warm welcome includes milk and eggs which is a nice touch.
It's well located for New Forest walks with plenty to do in the area.
Would definitely recommend and plan to return for another visit!
