Barn Cottage is a recently completed barn conversion with 2 double bedrooms with kingsize beds, both with en-suite wet rooms.

From the enclosed patio/courtyard area, a large sliding patio door leads you into a light and airy open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Solid oak flooring with oak beams framing the doors and kitchen area along with a wood burning stove add to the rustic feel. Television with built-in DVD player is provided.

The view from the kitchen window encompasses our well kept grass area and a generous patio area offers privacy with enclosed fence.

Local Area

From the cottage you can cycle or walk a short distance into the forestry tracks. We have plenty of storage for your bikes. If you wish to bring your boat to take to the coast, we can store this securely for you. Pets are allowed providing they do not go into the bedroom or on the furniture.

At the bottom of the road, we have the local convenience store with post office and the village pub.


Situated on the edge of the New Forest, located on the boundary of Dorset and Hampshire, close to the River Avon. Ideally situated to explore Ringwood Forest on our doorstep, and a short drive can take you to the New Forest National Park famous for its free roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle and pigs in the autumn, Moors Valley Country Park, the local quaint town of Fordingbridge, delightful Wimborne Minster or the local market town of Ringwood.

“Great location for exploring the New Forest. Heather and Denis were lovely; friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. The cottage felt far enough away from the main property to feel nicely independent and was spotless inside. Would definitely recommend.”

“A cosy, perfectly positioned bolthole...”

“Definitely going to try and book to stay here again. Travelling with my husband and 5 year old, we needed something close to the Verwood, Ringwood area. This was such a lucky find, quiet, cosy and comfortable.”

“Wonderful little property...”

“Beautifully converted dairy, ideally situated for exploring the New Forest. Excellent equipment and utensils with a lovely comfortable bed! The enclosed porch is ideal for discarding coats, muddy boots and towelling the wet dog! I would stay there again if we're in the area.”
