Courtyard cottage at Lone Barn is ideally situated for short breaks/holidays offering respite from the hectic day to day rush of life. Only 1.5 hours from London, set in the heart of Hampshire countryside in a rural and secluded position.
The cottage is set within the courtyard of Lone Barn nestled in the valley just off the South Downs beneath Broadhalfpenny down - the home of English cricket. For walking and biking enthusiasts there are many picturesque walks from the door on the extensive bridleways/footpaths that surround Lone Barn. Close enough to the southcoast for a vast choice of beaches and seaside activities. Melanie ensures that the cottage is more like a home rather than a holiday stopover and hope that guests respect it as if it was their home.
