A stylish converted barn set in the grounds of a Georgian Lodge House within the South Downs National Park. Conveniently located close to the picturesque market towns of Alresford, Petersfield, Alton and historic Winchester, it is an ideal base to explore Hampshire.
Rustic luxury is the barn’s style; whitewashed timber walls, heated oak floors, industrial iron lighting and furniture sit comfortably alongside crisp linen, feather duvets and generous sized pillows. Relax and restore after an action packed day with Neal’s Yard toiletries and fluffy towels. Comfort is key. Ideal for couples, friends and solo travellers alike with the option of a super king or twin beds.
A Nespresso coffee machine, toaster and kettle accompanied by homemade biscuits or cake await. A complimentary breakfast of granola, yogurt, fruit, fresh bread and jam is on offer or a more substantial breakfast hamper is available at an additional cost on advance request.
The Barn is equipped with the usual mod cons with TV, Chrome Cast, WIFI and Sonos Music System.
There are Sweeping views from the bedroom french doors up the field where the majestic Redwood Tree and often Pheasants, Hare and Roe deer can be seen. You are free to explore North Lodge’s paddock to visit North Lodge’s chickens and there is a footpath off the property over fields from which you can walk to the famous “Pub with no Name” in just under an hour. If you enjoy walking or mountain biking you can join the 100 mile ancient South Downs Way at West Meon, Old Winchester Hill and find more stunning walks along Hangers Way heading towards Petersfield. Queen Elizabeth Country Park offers white knuckle mountain biking trails for the adrenalin seekers.
Within easy reach are Jane Austen’s house at Chawton (4 miles), Gilbert White’s House (6 miles), The Grange Opera at Northington and National Trust property Hinton Ampner. The pretty Georgian market town of Alresford is worthy of a visit for it’s wealth of independent shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as the Watercress train line, but it really comes into it’s own during May’s Watercress Festival. Historic Winchester is 15 miles from the Barn, which not only boasts one of the largest cathedrals in Europe but museums, theatres, art house cinemas, a diverse choice of bars and restaurants and fantastic shopping.
Easy access to the New Forest means there’s no shortage of things to do.
