    “A party of three, we had a short but relaxing weekend away at the old Cart Shed.”

    The place was amply kitted out, with plenty of space for the three of us. A bit odd not to have towels supplied and a little surprised by the number of separate places close to the shed (3+) but we didn't hear a peep out of our neighbours and there was plenty of countryside tranquility to be had. Bumped into the host on the farm who was very friendly and helped guide us towards the nearest pub (the gorgeous Rose & Thistle in Rockbourne). It was a solid 40min walk but we opted for a taxi back ...

It was a solid 40min walk but we opted for a taxi back which worked out fine. Great walks nearby and Stonehenge on the way home so all in all a lovely break.

The property

In the historic village of Rockbourne is West Park Farm, a working beef and arable farm.

Occasionally, if you'd like to get involved you may be able to help the owner with day to day farm tasks and you are welcome to explore the pretty bluebell wood.

Also on site you'll find a large pond and a hard tennis court, which you are welcome to use (but please bring your own racquets).

West Park Farm is ideally placed for exploring the New Forest, the cathedral city of Salisbury and the sandy beaches of Bournemouth and Christchurch.

Full of character, The Old Cart Shed, has high raftered ceilings, exposed beams and natural wood has been used wherever possible.

Pretty cottage furnishings complement the modern bathrooms and kitchen.

The bedrooms are configured for versatility, including stacker beds in one of the ground floor rooms, enabling it to be used as a single or twin room.

From the lounge a handsome wooden staircase leads to a gallery bedroom tucked under the eaves.

The Old Cart Shed has its own private, enclosed garden, though guests are welcome to enjoy the shared seating area around the pond.

Up to two well behaved dogs welcome charged at £30 each per stay.
