Map & Local Information

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).

"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."

"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!"

"We had a wonderful week in this delightful cottage. It is well equipped catering for your every need. Very tastefully decorated and furnished throughout and has the most comfortable beds, we all slept like logs. We took my elderly Mother with us and the fact it is all on one level made it very easy for her. Phil and Jill were wonderful hosts and made us so welcome when we arrived and it was nice to know that they were just at the bottom of the drive if we needed anything. We had nice weather but one evening was particularly gloomy and we lit the log burner making us feel very cosy. The location is perfect in a beautiful village with a well stocked shop with a café at the rear, the local pub and a butcher's shop all just a few minute’s walk down the road. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the drive where you can catch a bus into Winchester. Anybody wishing to stay in this area should give this accommodation serious consideration."
