I stayed at Orchard Barn for 4 nights with my husband and two children (1 and 3 years old).
Heidi was so welcoming and recommended lots of places for us to visit, including Mudeford Quay which we really enjoyed.
The barn itself is homely, Heidi has thought of everything you could need and the wooden train set she kindly lent the children was a hit! It’s ideally located for exploring the New Forest and surrounding area, and Fordingbridge is close by with a nice children’s playground (with splash pool) and shops.
A really lovely place to stay, peaceful and comfortable. We were lucky enough to see deer in the garden one morning too!
Close to the New Forest, this barn is just lovely and comfortable, with everything you could need. Heidi was brilliant and let our little boy play in their beautiful garden, and even lent him a train set. He loved sleeping in his 'secret bed' upstairs! As for us, we had a lovely break visiting local attractions and then relaxing in luxury in the barn. If we go to the New Forest again, we will definitely visit again!
The host - What a brilliant break and what an excellent host. Words or feedback cannot do justice to commend, laud about Heidi. She was genuine, caring and was also mindful that we needed the space. She was forever there with a smile and she killed us with her kindness and warmth. Loved the small touches - Victoria sponge ☺...
The property - What can I say. Perfect, beautiful and lovely setting. Very family friendly and amazing places to visit in and around the barn.
A friendly suggestion - A clear description or landmarks to help to reach the property easily would be welcome. Heidi did a brilliant job of navigating us to the property when our satnav in the car and google maps decided to take us for a ride literally.... She gave us clear instructions on how to get there and we got there in a jiffy. If she can include that instructions on the site it would be brilliant.
