Grade II Listed Barn Conversion on the Edge of Bournemouth and the New Forest

Family-friendly holiday home in Bournemouth with water park
A beautiful Grade II Listed 4 bedroom barn conversion 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.

5/5 Excellent

Incredible house that is perfect for families and groups
The place is amazing and better than the pictures. In a lovely secluded location right next to some lovely walks and country side but equally very close to shops and the rest of Bournemouth. The privacy of the gate and the front garden meant it was perfect for letting the young children out the front. The house itself is huge! The lounge and kitchen set up are very social settings and make it such a nice place to stay with family or friends. The welcome pack left by Isabel was perfect and the check-in process made living in the house so easy and relaxing. Could not recommend this place enough and having looked for a long time on other sites like Air BnB, the quality and size of this house is good value.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous break from London
We loved staying in this beautiful barn. Isabel was there when we arrived and had already put our shopping delivery away as well as left us all the essentials and a lovely chocolate cake. We loved the ambience, kitchen and pool table . We especially enjoyed being on the stour valley walk which meant a walking path right on our door step. Isabel was great at answeing all our questions proptly and my son was in heaven with an Xbox and a wii. We also enjoyed netflix and Amazon prime which was much needed on our super rainy week.
