A stunning detached barn conversion with uninterrupted views

Have a heavenly holiday at this humble abode, which welcomes guests with tails, too. Spend your days adventuring before hopping in the hot tub whilst canine chums roam the enclosed garden in search of new scents. The open-plan living area means you can keep an eye on your pesky pups from the comfort of the sofa.

 Keep warm by the wood burner, which sits against an exposed brick wall in the charming lounge area; put your feet and paws up and unwind with a book or a bone. The exquisite attention to detail flows through to the dining area where the table comfortably seats four guests. Wholesome meals and tasty titbits can be rustled up in the sleek kitchen. Its beautifully elegant decor makes it a lovely relaxing space in which to follow recipes and create delicious flavours. Two glorious bedrooms are delightful places to doze and one is treated to doors opening out onto the garden. With one bathroom and a shower room, soak aching muscles and wash muddy paws. Outside, enjoy a tipple on the patio as furry guests sniff, stick-chase and scamper to their heart’s content; a wood-fired hot tub and gazebo mean you don’t have to go anywhere to have a ball in the evenings.

Less than a mile from the River Hamble, throw on a lead and head out for a morning stroll by the water. For a bite to eat, Winchester is 22 miles from home and has an abundance of dog-friendly eateries in addition to a variety of shops and a stunning cathedral. Nearby National Trust property Hinton Ampner is 14 miles away and welcomes all members of your family.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great place to relax and unwind but still close to everything you might need .superb garden for the dog to roam free and watch the chickens and ducks.

The property is in a great location, so peaceful would highly recommend. Owners are very nice they live next door if you need them for anything but still a nice distance for privacy. Views of fields, chickens and horses. Lovely walks, stunning port with cafe about 20-30 min walk (dog friendly) Nice local pubs, plenty to do for days out shopping etcRead more Hide

Day 1 we walked in the smell of sewage from the bathroom was horrid, this repeated on the last night. Smell was so bad we couldn't sleep! Then i came across problems such as no oven gloves, cushions had been left on the chairs outside and were filthy and wet. TV in 2nd room unusable, text owner who was bringing batteries round but she didn't come, Read moreit wasn't used all week. Hot tub lid broken, not cleaned until after we left. My son now has an ear infection from dirty water. Hide

Another wonderful holiday in the peace and tranquillity of Rooksbridge Barn! The barn is immaculate and every tiny need has been thought of. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely touch, as were the fresh eggs from the chickens. The owners are delightful and extremely helpful and welcoming. A fantastic property.
