The lodge was extremely well equipped and modern, yet it still felt homely and cosy. The shower was fantastic. Hayley made us feel very welcome. There are some lovely walks nearby and it's near enough to walk into the village. Will definitely return again to explore the area some more and to escape to the complete peace and quiet

Tim and Helen were very welcoming and on hand if you needed them. Nice comfortable beds. The accommodation is at the end of a farm driveway so is quiet and relaxing.

We later met Matt who also was a very nice chap and very friendly to talk to. The barn is a beautiful, quirky, modern, comfortable and homely place...small in size however perfect for a couple as a gorgeous getaway. Not a lot of natural light but having the lamps/dimmed lighting on makes it more the cosier! Water pressure not great in the taps/shower but this is something that is being sorted. Surrounding area is rural, private and scenic. Lovely place to have a walk around and plenty of local places to visit. Not a far drive into Winchester city centre either. Thank you Matt & Kate for a lovely couple of days - would return :)
