Holiday Rental House
Welcome to John's Barn. The barn has just been converted to a holiday home (finished in May 2015). It is set in the very peaceful location of Coopers Clump. John and Bobbie Middleton have lived at Coopers Clump since their marriage (a long time ago) and they have run a thriving nursery now retired, (they wish!) John's Barn has been converted from the former shed for potting plants, storing tools and tractors to a (dare we say it – beautiful) open plan barn. The barn was planned by an architect to be open-plan living and there are no walls between the entrance, kitchen, dining area and living area and lots of lovely glazing with great views of the outdoors. There are three double bedrooms (two are set as twin rooms), a bathroom and a shower-room. The downstairs bedroom has a walk in sh...Welcome to John's Barn. The barn has just been converted to a holiday home (finished in May 2015). It is set in the very peaceful location of Coopers Clump.

John's Barn has been converted from the former shed for potting plants, storing tools and tractors to a (dare we say it – beautiful) open plan barn. The barn was planned by an architect to be open-plan living and there are no walls between the entrance, kitchen, dining area and living area and lots of lovely glazing with great views of the outdoors. There are three double bedrooms (two are set as twin rooms), a bathroom and a shower-room. The downstairs bedroom has a walk in shower room opposite so it is ideal for any guests with limited mobility. John and Bobbie welcome guests to come and enjoy the very private home they have enjoyed for many years. There is a large lake, originally dug out by John to irrigate the plants, which is now well stocked with friendly and well fed carp which you are welcome to fish, or feed…. There are over 50 acres of land to explore, including footpath trails leading to Embley Park, former home of Florence Nightingale. The woodland setting is a haven for wildlife, there are plenty of deer, rabbits, badgers, squirrels, pheasants and many birds, including herons (on the lake) that you will encounter! The location is also a great base for exploring further afield to the New Forest, the Solent, historic towns of Winchester, Salisbury, Southampton and Portsmouth. Also we are about 5 mins from the ridiculously popular Peppa Pig World! More

Wear had an amazing stay in this most idyllically located accommodation. John's barn is beautiful and well equipped. The 50 acres of woodland, lake, river and wildlife meant we did not need to travel far though Peppa Pig world and Marwell Zoo were close by....More
