Less than an hour from London the Hampshire countryside is a pleasure in all seasons. Beautiful scenery with numerous local attractions, welcoming country pubs and restaurants.

Situated in the heart of Southern England with it's mild climate, it is an ideal base to explore Hampshire and the surrounding counties of Wiltshire and Berkshire.

Visit the seaside resorts or the naval dockyards in Portsmouth (with HMS Victory and the Mary Rose) and the motor museum at Beaulieu in the New Forest.

There is so much to do and a warm welcome awaits you.


Andover is approximately 13 miles North-West of Winchester. The town has been in continuous habitation since Saxon times and was granted its first charter in 1175 by King Henry II.

Throughout its history it has been on major routes; the ancient Harrow Way passed just north of the town, and the Winchester to Cirencester Roman Road passes through the town (and almost beside our cottage)

The expansion of the town in the 1960's nearly doubled the town's population and brought a major boost to the local economy, which now has a thriving diversity of industry.

"immaculate and well appointed in a peaceful countryside setting"

We really enjoyed our stay. There was everything we needed in the barn and the only problem we had was that the dog escaped very easily from the garden and as the surrounding fields were so open, we were worried that we would lose him. A secure fence would have meant that we could relax while we sat outside. Everything else about the cottage was great.

"Peaceful, comfortable and spacious retreat."

The cottage is very well equipped with an excellent welcome pack, including delicious homemade marmalade. It is at the end of a lane surrounded by fields. Plenty of wildlife and some good local walks. Easy to get into Andover and the ring road : an excellent base for exploring the local attractions.

"Very comfortable, relaxing and well equipped property"

Very comfortable, relaxing and well equipped property - a pleasure to return to each day. Very peaceful location at the end of a private lane and you can do walks right from the property. There's a football pitch, tennis court and children's play area in nearby Wildhern. Within an hour of Beaulieu, Portsmouth (RN dockyard, etc, etc), Southampton, Thorpe Park, Stonehenge. High quality fixtures and fittings at the property and very roomy inside.

"Rural Haven"

We found this rural haven delightful and spacious and meet all our accommodation needs. Pleased with the basket of goodies when we first we there. Living area had plenty of room. There were all the facilities for cooking. We used the barbecue, as well. You are surrounded by fields and the country side. It was very pleasant and restful. Nice walks and a good local country pub offered very good cuisine. Liked the outdoor furniture. Plenty of place to park a car.

"Dines Barn - Excellent!"

A lovely place, relax and enjoy the countryside and wildlife and / or visit a variety of places of interest and attractions. We found the cottage to be exceptionally comfortable and clean, well equipped and pet friendly. An excellent supermarket delivered to the door. The owner was extremely helpful and dealt with the administration promptly and efficiently. We would definitely return.

"Beautiful, peaceful and perfect holiday retreat"

This was our 2nd stay at Dines Barn and with each stay I love it more. The welcome basket that you receive when you arrive is such a nice touch and includes items such as wonderful bread, milk, butter, biscuits, wine, chocolates and home made marmalade. The barn is so well equipped and it was so easy to cook and entertain my very large extended family. We had lots of visitors during and stay and all of them feel in love with the barn. As we live in Macau that is one of the most densely populated places in the world the barn gave us the peacefulness that we were seeking. Watching the wild life was amazing and seeing my children run free in the beautiful fields is a wonderful memory. We love Dines Barn!!

"Escape to this delightful barn"

We booked this barn as part of a trip incorporating a wedding at Highclere Castle and was the most relaxing thing we did compared to the busy 'wedding weekend'. Surrounded by no-one it was the best decision, we only ventured out a few times to waitrose, do a spot of fly fishing and visit the local pub which we even walked to one day! Apart from that if you want a property that will re-charge your batteries then this is your place. Everything you could ever wish for has been provided so don't take the kitchen sink like I did! Want to return ASAP.

"Fantastic property with great location and facilities"

Dines Barn is a fantastic property in a great location with great facilities. We were impressed from the minute we got to the property. The interior was great, with a fully equipped kitchen and all mod cons. We were really impressed that towels and a selection of toiletries were left for all our guests. All in all this was one of the best properties we have ever stayed in and we would consider returning in the future (something very rare for us).

"Perfect for a family reunion"

Dines Barn was just what we needed to spend time with our UK resident family. The presentation was lovely with high quality inclusions. Particularly for international visitors a more reliable Internet connect would be desirable and our grandson couldn't find the cows! Well located for for many day trips and information of these provided by our hosts was excellent.

"Lovely place, lovely area, lovely time"

Really great converted barn, very comfortable and well equipped. In a lovely area - we were kept entertained by deer, hares and the owl. Lots to see in the area and excellent food at local pubs.
