My home is beautifully situated in a quiet village location, ideal for visiting both the beach and New Forest. There are several pubs in the area, 3 within walking distance!!

The space

I have two double bedrooms available which have been newly decorated so lovely, fresh and clean! They are located at one end of the house, so quite private and share a private bathroom. All in a beautiful converted barn on the edge of the New Forest. There is a lounge which would be shared occasionally when family members visit but otherwise would be for your sole use. Downstairs there are french doors onto a sunny garden (when the English sun shines!) which guests are welcome to use.

I have wireless internet which is included.

I recommend a car for your stay here as public transport is limited, there is a parking space available opposite the house. Several local, lovely English pubs are within a few minutes walk away. Sopley is a quiet, secluded location for you to relax and explore from, perfectly situated, as nearest beach is a only a 10 minute drive ( but there are many to choose from in the area) and the New Forest is a similar distance. I share my house with my son and his partner, so you would be sharing a kitchen with the 3 of us. I will be happy to give advice on the area and things to do, as I have lived here for over 20 years!

Guest access

Guests can share all communal areas.

Interaction with guests

I will gladly give you tips on things to do and see in the area and events happening. There will be too many to choose from!!

Other things to note

Although there are two bedrooms I tend to rent one room at a time to ensure the bathroom is private. At the moment I have a guest in the first bedroom who stays from Monday to Friday, as they work in the area. So the second bedroom is available Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, the minimum 3 stay. However if you don't mind sharing the bathroom on the overlapping days your stay can be extended.

The barn is beautiful... it is so quiet & peaceful (apart from roosters some mornings!) and it was very private. In fact, our schedules were apparently so different we never saw anyone in the barn, including our host! You have a shelf in the fridge and can help yourself to coffee and toast (with home made jams!). The room was clean and comfortable and the lounge that you can use was so impressive & calm. I would recommend quiet sleepers as sound travels easily between the two bedrooms...Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

An amazing place to stay and highly recommended to anyone wanting to visit The New Forest. The house is welcoming, clean, conformable and will probably give you a little bit of house-envy by the time you leave.

You will truly enjoy your stay here. Rachael's mum Maxine was a great host. Ensuring we had everything we needed and made us feel right at home. It is a beautiful house which was clean and tidy. The location was great with a local pub within a few minutes walk and easy access to near by attractions. You will not be disappointed with your stay. We truly enjoyed our time at the barn and woudl definitely go back.

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE! Stayed with Maxine for a month on my placement from uni. The place is so comfortable, clean and tidy! Really felt like home from home. Hosts are very hospitable too. So close to the New Forest for exploring and easy travel links to Southampton and Bournemouth. Nothing negative to say! I'll be back. Thanks a million for having me!

Rachael's place is perfectly located for weddings taking place at Sopley Mill, as it is only a 2 minute walk away. The barn is beautiful and tidy, and there is ample shared accommodation for a really comfortable stay.

A gorgeous home in the New Forest, a wonderful welcome. The rooms are comfy and beautifully decorated, the kitchen and breakfast basket was just enough to keep you going for the day.
