Description

On the edge of the charming village of Martin, the most westerly parish in Hampshire, “Pippin” and “Russet” are the very appealing result of a thoughtfully planned conversion from a former farm building. The cottages stand in the owner's grounds, some distance away from the main house and offer ample privacy to their guests. They can be rented individually but are also very suitable for a larger group wishing to holiday together, with a self-contained, communal “barn” in between the two cottages providing an ideal space where larger parties can comfortably gather to eat or just relax. The barn also caters for an additional two guests on a double sofa bed when the cottages are booked jointly.

“Russet” and “Pippin” occupy either end of a single storey building, approached by a winding gravel path across a large grassed area adjoining a paddock. Each cottage has its own fenced, private garden area while in between

“Russet” and “Pippin” occupy either end of a single storey building, approached by a winding gravel path across a large grassed area adjoining a paddock. Each cottage has its own fenced, private garden area while in between the cottages is the communal barn/games room.

Communal barn/games room

In between Russet and Pippin there is a large communal barn comprising a sitting area with woodburning stove, a games area with pool table, a dining area and a fully equipped fitted kitchen with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is a separate shower room/wc. The barn is available, at no extra cost, to all guests using either cottage. When Russet and Pippin are booked jointly, the long pine refectory table will comfortably seat up to 10 guests, making the space ideal for large get-togethers and special celebrations. On these occasions, an extra two guests can, if required, be accommodated in the barn using the double sofa bed available, for which the cost is £250 per week or £200 per short break.

Further details indoors

Location description from manager

The England region

Within easy driving distance for a day's outing are the beaches of the South Hampshire and Dorset coastline and a plethora of attractions – Stonehenge, Stourhead Gardens, Longleat Safari Park, the World Heritage city of Bath and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, the latter being only about 20 minutes' drive.

Martin

The area surrounding Sweet Apples Barn offers some stunning countryside in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with excellent opportunities for walking, riding and cycling. The 'no through' lane on which the cottages are situated, leads directly up to Martin Down, a large area of chalk downland, designated a National Nature Reserve, which supports a huge range of wild flowers, birds and butterflies. The country road leading south out of the village, will take you to the small country town of Fordingbridge on the banks of the River Avon and beyond that to the New Forest National Park boundary, about 15 minutes' drive from Martin.

Martin itself lies in a valley, the main street lined with period houses and picturesque thatched cottages. There is a community village shop with restricted opening hours and a church of Norman origins.

“Ideal for extended family celebrations!””

Reviewed 13 May 2013

Four families including three children aged 3 yrs. and younger came to celebrate our silver and my sisters Ruby Wedding Anniversaries. The two separate cottages and barn accommodated all 11 of us, with the use of two put-u-up settees. This meant that the children could go off to bed, with monitors (our own) to listen out for them while the adults enjoyed the living space of the barn. We used the dining and kitchen area of one of the cottages for the children to eat and it meant that there was still some living space for other adults wanting a retreat!!! The children loved to watch the farm animals, but were a little wary of the dogs! Each cottage is well equipped as is the barn, with TV's in the cottages but not in the main barn. I actually found this quite refreshing to be TV less for the 4 days we were here, though think that some of the men would have liked one!! The barn area has a lovely long table and benches allowing us all to share the days activities with our meals, but perhaps one small point is that sitting 8 adults on the sofa was a bit cosy!!! The position of the cottages gives you easy easy access to the sea and all that you find in the New Forest, which is lots for all ages. The owner provided an additional service of a three course meal to end our celebrations and had choices to pick for our menu! We had a cold starter and dessert with a wonderful lamb main course all very reasonably priced and of excellent quality, which too I would highly recommend. This was a perfect retreat to have a lovely family celebration. Thanks to Cathy the owner for all your help to make this a most enjoyable stay. I would recommend this for extended family or other group get togethers!Ease of booking

We're so glad you found that Russet and Pippin were suitable for your special celebrations. Thank you for your constructive feedback and helpful assessment of the two cottages. Hideaways Reservations team.
