West Meon, Hampshire Cottages
Standing at the top of the owner's garden, some 50 metres from their 15th century cottage, Shafts Barn oozes character and style, the vaulted ceilings with their original timber structure being a real feature throughout. The interior is tastefully decorated creating a wonderfully cosy atmosphere and making you feel totally at home. An idyllic retreat for a family or small group break.

The surrounding area offers wonderful opportunities for walking on the South Downs Way, cycling along the disused Meon Valley railway and fly fishing at the nearby Meon Springs. The multitude of footpaths, bridleways and cycleways are a rewarding way to discover its well preserved countryside and picturesque villages, many with welcoming country pubs.
Within 45 minutes' drive are almost limitless attractions including the cathedral cities of Winchester and Chichester, the historic ports of Southampton and Portsmouth, Goodwood, with its year round calendar of events, and the south coast beaches and sailing harbours.
For shopping, the market town of Petersfield is eight miles away, while just a few minutes' walk from the barn, you'll find a village shop and cafe, a local butcher (award winning sausages) and the Thomas Lord pub (named after the founder of Lord's Cricket Ground).
"Very comfortable. Good location. Welcoming owners."Palmer
"Shafts Barn was perfect for us and made our bank holiday foray into a real pleasure. The Barn itself is very well equipped with thoughtful touches, comfortable beds and an excellent shower. The well equipped kitchen worked well, the lounge area comfortable and the outside space lush and well kept. The whole Barn was very clean, too - and the owners were more than happy to accommodate our request for non-feather pillows. West Meon is also the perfect base - a lovely village in its own right, it was ideally located for Portsmouth (first visit - great place!) and a day trip to the Isle of Wight from a tranquil and secluded country base. Perfect."Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-08-31
"We had a lovely stay at Shaft Barn. It is a well decorated and fully equipped cottage. A nice private garden with enough toys for our two young boys.The owners, Phil and Jill, are really friendly and helpful. The surrounding is great, with a lovely village (with all the basic needs provided) and within car distance you find Winchester or a nice sandy beach. We definitely recommend this cottage!"Guest's review on TripAdvisor 2017-07-08
