Gins Barn is nestled deep within the New Forest National Park and has a magnificent waterfront position where the Beaulieu River meets the Solent waters. Surrounded by breath-taking sea views and protected wetland areas, it has an unrivalled spot in the very heart of Mother Nature. Watch striking coastal birds roam the lush marshland areas or gaze at the carefree wild ponies grazing amongst the farmland. With gentle waters, rocky beaches and ancient woodland trees, this place offers the very best rural scenes.
The superior, one-storey barn is located on an historic Hampshire farm and has a peaceful spot next to the main farmhouse building. Masterfully transformed by a renowned furniture designer, it is now an artistic treasure trove that has stunning original features.
The sumptuous drawing room is a tranquil haven that is furnished with sink-in sofas, vintage armchairs and a classic wood burner. Warm woollen rugs sit atop solid wood floorboards, while masses of beautiful books adorn the designer furniture. A modern country kitchen is just down the hallway and has an iconic farmhouse sink and a myriad of mod-cons.
Four deluxe bedrooms provide ample space for eight and include one master king-size room, two doubles and a twin. The large master room is the biggest of the four and has double aspect windows and a lovely en-suite. The two smaller doubles share a gorgeous mirrored bathroom, while the spacious twin room has access to the family bathroom. With thick mattresses, feather down duvets and the magical hum of birdsong, they are the ultimate place for a morning lie-in.
If you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to spread out then there is a massive 13×6 metre Tithe Barn attached to your main accommodation. Available to hire at a small extra cost, it is an uber-cool space that has serious character. Its large dining table can easily seat up to twenty though the room can be rearranged for groups of up to 100 people.
The start of the jetty onto the river is 150m from the front door across the garden and in total 80m long.
