Get away weekend
We booked this cottage at short notice. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and cosy, beautiful surroundings couldn’t wish for more. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back again. Recommend 100%.
Very beautiful cottage , everything needed for a few days away. Lovely owners .
A great weekend reTreat
Lovely people in a super location . Peace and quiet near to Fordingbridge and the coast.
Very suitable for the older generation
Cute and cozy
We loved our stay! So nice to have some tea, coffee, milk, cakes and even wine there when we arrived.
The cottage was very clean and we loved the location and despite the rain we made the most of it. Enough room for a small family, our kids are still little so perfect for us and they loved the wet rooms! We would love to book again next time we are visiting family. Thank you.
Birthday Celebration in the beautiful countryside!
We were looking for a place to stay for several nights where we could invite our friends to stay the night to help them celebrate a special birthday. Our friend finds stairs difficult, so Barn Cottage was ideal, all on one level and each bedroom having its own en-suite wet room. Barn Cottage (located off a B road and very quiet and secluded), is on the outskirts of Alderholt which is within 3 miles of Fordingbridge (on the edge of the New Forest). The George pub provides wonderful cream teas and Dorset Apple Cake, sitting next to the beautiful River Avon. It is also within 20 miles of the Dorset coast.
The owners live next door and greeted us warmly on arrival. They were on-hand if required but also provided privacy. Communication was easy and we found Heather and Denis friendly and helpful. In the cottage, they provided home-made cakes, fresh flowers on the table, wine and milk in the fridge. Thank you!
In the large grounds, with plenty of parking space, there is a small caravan site, including a separate building housing washing machine and dryer. All other kitchen appliances are within the cottage. There is a wood burning stove with fuel provided but we did not use as it was warm and cosy enough. Everything we needed was there. The cottage was very spacious, clean and bright with roof lights in all rooms. Outside there is seating on a patio area reached through patio doors. We cannot recommend highly enough. We are hoping to return next year.
Thank you for your great detailed review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to seeing you again.
