This impressive barn conversion is one of two available to holidaymakers in the grounds of Goesmere Gardens, situated three miles West of Fordingbridge on the outskirts of the pretty village of Damerham. With a high ceiling and galleried landing this spacious property is an ideal base for a family or friends wishing to holiday together in peaceful surroundings with views over fields and farm land. Ground floor accommodation and a bathroom is available here which may benefit guests with lack of mobility.
Damerham is steeped in history dating back to 12th Century and well worth a stroll from the property to include a visit to The Compasses, the popular village pub.

Within a 30 minute drive it is possible to visit Salisbury, walk, cycle or horse ride in the New Forest, explore Go Ape at Moors Valley Country Park, or enjoy water based activities at the New Forest Water Park.

Property: Self-catering holiday house
Ash Barn was a really lovely, and spotlessly clean, holiday barn. It was a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The surrounding fields were very pretty and the animals charming! It was also in a great location to travel to lots of attractions and activities, including of course the New Forest. I would really recommend Ash Barn and hope to return there some time.
Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and the cottage was perfect. It was ideal for our travels to different locations, but the Forest was on your doorstep and still as beautiful. The cottages was perfectly placed for all services. For me, 10/10.
We did enjoy our stay - very much. Thank you to Sarah and Michael for being such kind hosts
We had a fantastic stay at Ash Barn, lovely welcoming owners, a beautiful location and a beautiful barn conversion.

Yes, the barn was immaculate and very luxurious and even equipped with the basics, toilet rolls, hand wash, washing tabs, tea ,coffee , sugar and biscuits the owners thought of everything!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean, modern and had everything we needed. It was child friendly and our two young grandchildren loved seeing all the animals. I would certainly book again.
The Barn is in a lovely setting, very quiet and relaxing. Can't wait to book again next year
The barn was beautifully and thoughtfully designed and presented and in a lovely rural spot.
We love these barns. Have already rebooked for a further two times this year. Perfect for all the family. Great location. We love Ollie the horse. Looking forward to coming back on August.
We had a wonderful stay at the barn. Excellent location and excellent hosts.
We had the most wonderful time at Ash Barn and would very much like to book it again in the future. A modern build with all the equipment supplied for an enjoyable stay. Superb wildlife - not to mention the resident livestock. We'd like to enjoy the outside more - in more suitable weather.
Other than the above minor things, the stay was excellent. We had a lovely time and the property itself was amazing. Can't wait to go again!
We had a fantastic week in Ash Barn!! Everything was brand new, good showers , enough hot water, well function heating, cosy woodburner,... everything OK We will certainly return to this cottage !!
