“A wonderful place to stay, very relaxing, very helpful owners”
Reviewed 26 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The property was perfect, very clean and had all the facilities we needed.

The location was superb, direct access to the Test way, wonderful for cycling and walking.

We spent a very relaxing 3 days here, would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this lovely part of the country.

“perfect place for a very enjoyable stay in a peaceful countryside well appointedcottage”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My boyfriend and I had a very nice stay. We regretted not to be able to stay longer as the place really was up to our expectations (eg countryside cottage with a touch of elegant rustic style). The place is very quiet. We enjoyed the very comfortable bed linen, and the old style bathtub.

There was no WiFi available but you can get 3G at some spots. This was never a big inconvenience as we were not looking to be checking our mails and be on the internet all the time.

Also, the owners were very helpful in giving directions, easing the booking procedure (as we were a bit last minute), and we enjoyed chatting with them. They even left eggs from their own chicken in the kitchen.

I definitely recommend it, and will for sure be back for a longer time!

Thank you for your lovely review and I am glad you enjoyed you stay at The Old Barns. It is always nice to hear that you enjoyed the cottage and found it comfortable. We do have internet access, but don't advertise the fact as it is a little unpredictable in our rural location and the Wi-Fi doesn't work well through the thick cob walls although we have now installed a wire in Cottage 1. If you need anything please don't hesitate to ask as we will always try to accommodate. Look forward to seeing you again in the future.

“Fantastic quiet magical place, run by a very friendly family.”
Reviewed 29 April 2012 for a stay in January 2012

The location is rural but well-connected if you have your own transport. Stunning and very clean and luxurious holiday accommodation. Lovely surroundings, perfect for walking and cycling. It was very romantic to sit on the balcony and watch the sunset. Close to Winchester and Mottisfont. Rob and Sarah are very helpful and friendly. My partner and I stayed a few days in this quirky, very clean and quiet, wonderfully sized self-contained cottage. This cottage has everything you need, from an open planned and well-equipped kitchen, a nice bathroom with freestanding bath, big cosy lounge with TV and a large and comfy bedroom. It had a save and enclosed car park.
