Barn Conversion with Hot Tub on the edge of Bournemouth and the New Forest.

Family-friendly holiday home with water park and outdoor pool
A beautiful Grade II Listed 5 bedroom barn conversion with large Swim Spa Hot Tub ( available mid June 2022) situated conveniently between the New Forest and the beautiful beaches of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, a wonderful destination for family and friends to get-together or celebrate.
Located ideally close to major routes and Bournemouth international Airport. Ideal as a base to explore the surrounding area with river walks, cycling and golf courses all on the doorstep.
The Barn was lovingly converted in 2006 and although it retains the character of the listed building it has a all the conveniences and creature comforts that you would expect from a modern house. It is built in a horseshoe shape and consist of 4 main areas;
The lounge
This is a 65ft open vaulted green oak barn, with open mezzanine floors either end of it, both with sleeping arrangements and one with its own en-suite. Downstairs is a stone floored, with underfloor heating, area divided into a dining area for entertaining, a mini-grand piano area, for the gifted, a full size pool table area, for the more competitively spirited and the relaxing seating area with soft leather oversized sofas and throws to put your feet up after a long walk either watching a film or simply enjoying time with friends in front of the fireplace.
The Kitchen
There’s a modern open stile vaulted kitchen, with granite worktops, a large modern range oven and an American-style fridge-freezer will cater for everyone’s culinary desires. The central island, complete with barstools, a wine cooler and the large breakfast/dining table makes this a great space for entertaining.
The Bedrooms
The 2 double bedrooms, one with an en-suite and another with a shared bathroom with the children’s bedroom/playroom with double sofa bed are all decorated with contemporary fittings and neutral colours to create a relaxing atmosphere. They are carpeted and also have the benefit of underfloor heating for those cooler nights or alternatively doors onto the courtyard garden area for those hot summer days. The additional 2 sleeping areas are on the mezzanines in the living room area. One with an en-suite, the other with a sofa bed, perfect for sleeping or simply to sit and read or listen to music.
The Garden.
In the summer months the outside private courtyard garden is a great place to relax or entertain, where guests tend to spend most of their time firing up the grill to prepare some high quality local meat.
With high electric gates and a walled garden it’s the perfect environment for young children or pets to explore.
The Barn is located 5 minutes drive from CastlePoint Shopping Centre containing around 40 shops, including major retailers such as Marks & Spencer, Gap, Topshop, Asda, Sainsbury's, and B&Q.
Another 10 mins and you’re discovering the local beaches or entering the New Forest, there’s so much to see and discover from, whether you prefer exploring the countryside or more urban landscapes there’s plenty of both nearby.
Here you’ll find endless opportunities for walking, cycling and catching a glimpse of some of the local wildlife.
The river Stour offers swimming, for the hardy or even paddle boarding and kayaking in some places.

4/5 Good

The Barn is Brilliant
There are many fantastic facilities at the Barn. The kitchen is huge and extraordinarily well-equipped. The living/dining area is also huge and full of things to do. The outside area has parking for at least four cars and a lawn, trampoline and table-tennis table which the children in my party loved. There is one superb bedroom, but the others are not quite of the same quality, and the mezzanine bedroom is open to the living area, so cannot be used by children. The Barn has a great character as a building, and there are some lovely walks just from the front door. Long sandy beach 15 mins drive away. Isabel, the owner, is friendly and cooperative and helped to make my family's stay a real pleasure.

Isabel is the Hostess with the Mostess!
Wow what a weekend, what a property, what a host! We were made to feel special from the moment we chose the Piggery to have a special family stay. Isabel was excellent at communicating prior to the trip and on arrival she had pulled out all the stops! The welcome pack was a lovely touch and showed she cared. The house was beautifully put together and we particularly liked the small touches linking back to its former state. All in all, I can't recommend Isabel and her home enough!

Great stay!!!
We had a lovely stay. The home is gorgeous with lots of things to do for all ages. Isabella is a lovely host - gave us a warm welcome and great treats (for our dog as well), and always responsive when we had any queries. Would definitely love to stay again at the same place if we plan to visit Bournemouth.

5/5 Excellent

refreshing break from it all
This is a beautiful property, well renovated and a delight to stay in. Full of character with so many amenities suited for a trip away. We were met and guided around the property with full instructions on how to use everything. A wonderful homemade cake and bottle of wine to greet us too. A fantastic space to enjoy and relax in with the family. Access to beaches and the new forest for energetic days out and then back to this haven to relax and unwind in the evening. The weather meant we didn't get to really use the outside space but it is a lovely spot. We thoroughly enjoyed the communal spaces for pool, cards, dining, chatting and having fun. Finished to a high standard and great communications with the owner throughout.
