“For the money - this was great”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

For a family looking for a UK holiday, I would certainly recommend this cottage.
Its basic but functional. Some of the utilities are ageing but are all in good order and the cottage is kept clean and smart. Its roomy and conducive for a large group to live together without getting in each others way.
The bedrooms are downstairs and living area and kitchen is upstairs which makes for an interesting adjustment at first and it actually works well. If you are a fan of both country and city then this location could not get better - we loved being a 15 minute drive to the beach without the congestion of living in a city.
The living room has a wood-burning stove which adds a nice touch when staying at any other time than summer. The stables next to barn 1 and 2 help to give a rural feel and the day-to-day working of a stable enable those from a city a chance to hear and see something different right outside your front door. The kids loved this and the horses were friendly.

In summary, for the price, we highly recommend this accommodation. We'll be booking a return trip next year some time.

“Lovely Cottage, Fantastic location”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful stay in Barn 1. The location is excellent, just a short distance away from Bournemouth,Poole and the New Forest.The Cottage is on a working fruit farm near the river Stour.The children loved seeing the horses every day. The cottage itself had very spacious rooms and all the equipment you would need for a self catering holiday.We would definitely stay here again.

“The location of this property was excellent”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We had a wonderful time at the barn, the open field's and semi rural location were just what we needed.
It was wonderful to see the horses and talk to the owners and learn about them.
The kitchen was very well laid out and had everything we needed.
I would recommend this barn to anyone who likes the rural way of life , with Bournemouth just a short drive away
