Beautiful location and wonderful crabbing. We enjoyed all the space for lovely children. Papa has had a good 80th birthday celebration.

Thank you for arranging such perfect weather for a family re-union! Granny enjoyed doing her jigsaw under the borrowed light! The knife sharpener was also appreciated. Thank you also for laying on Ron Seal; an exhilarating but nerve wracking kayak trip! Best wishes

Thank you so much, this place is amazing!! My family have enjoyed every minute - staying here.
A lovely 5 day break at Gins Barn organised by New Forest Escapes. The house was very comfortable and in a lovely setting. Everything went swimmingly!
Our family had a wonderful long weekend at Gins Barn. Extremely welcoming & very comfortable in a Bloomsbury styled environment. All the family loved it. Very relaxing large lounge with lots of seating and a great space. Kitchen very well fitted out and superb range for cooking. Beds are very comfy and pillows spot on. Environment around the barn is stunning and really worth exploring. We would go back.

Gins Barn is absolutely stunning. It is harder to imagine a more stylish, comfortable holiday house in a more special setting. We were a party of two families and the space worked perfectly for us. The children played in the garden, enjoyed the trampoline, the chickens, fed apples to wild horses and every evening as the sun set we walked with them on to the private jetty where two seals came to sunbathe! Inside the house has been decorated beautifully with super comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and a huge living room with board games, cosy wood burner (not that we needed it as very cosy and sunny over Easter) and big sofas. The local area gives you tons of options for both coast adventures and woodland fun plus great pubs. We treated ourselves to lunch at nearby The Pig Hotel and Bucklers Hard both of which were fantastic. Although we found it hard to leave Gins Barn and just wish we had longer than our 5 nights. Can't wait to return. Five stars all round and very nice hosts!! You couldn't get a more dreamy UK setting.
A wonderful peaceful time in this gorgeous calm oasis. Day trips to the lovely Lymington and Bucklers Hard but the nicest bits were spent enjoying peace and tranquility and beautiful decorated temporary home.Top tip: go to the yacht club next door for lunch or supper - stunning views and good food.

We had a long weekend at Gins Barn with friends and family. It was such a fantastic experience for us all. The accommodation was superb and as we were very lucky with the weather our BBQ and all of the outdoor fun was very special. We were very grateful for the use of the Tithe Barn after the event on Friday and the extra space was very welcome. All in all a great weekend, excellent facilities and superb service from New Forest Escapes. Thank you all very much.

Gins Barn is wonderful - probably the best self-catering house we have ever stayed in. The location is stunning and the house is so well appointed - the art work is amazing. The attention to detail is just fantastic - with a kitchen that has everything, including all the basic store cupboard items. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well thought out and the lounge area is very comfortable. Everyone we dealt with from making the arrangements, the handy man on the day to the owners were great. My only issue is going to be the high benchmark this has set and will we ever stay anywhere as good again.
Beautiful house in gorgeous surroundings, visited as two families with four kids. Special love for Percy the dog. Definitely making a return visit!
