"We were a group of 6 adults, a 4 year old, a one year old and a 6-month old who travelled from London to spend a long weekend at Gins Barn. It couldn't have been a better choice, or a lovelier place to stay. Everything was pristine, comfortable, and incredibly homely - and the setting of the Barn is truly magical. The fact that such a true escape can be within two hours of London is almost unbelievable... Rachel and the team looked after every aspect of the booking with care and kindness, and we had a truly spoiling and faultless break. We all just wish we could still be there! "

A glorious slice of up-river, down-town chic. Gins Barn is tucked in tight where the Beaulieu River joins the Solent and is so close to the sea is a sailing landmark! With the Beaulieu River being one of the few privately owned rivers in the world there is no denying that this is an elite address. To the south is a private conservation wetland reserve, deep in clouds of chattering migratory birdlife and fields of wild ponies – all silhouetted at champagne-o’clock under big-sky sunsets and towering storms from the English Channel.

Ancient and magnificently beamed. Step inside for chunky oak floors warmed by enormous woollen rugs, a big modern kitchen with all the stuff you need. Serious art, lovely lighting, a great sound system and two fat wood-burners to snuggle down by. This is the ultimate retreat for big families, or groups of friends with something to celebrate!
