The Garden Room at The Old Coach House is a newly converted barn (one of three on the property) in this lovely New Forest location in a quiet road outside Ringwood. This well-regarded historic market town has excellent amenities including pubs, restaurants, cafes, nice shops and a Waitrose. The area is packed full of fabulous places to go and activities of all sorts, starting with walks into the forest from your doorstep.


The accommodation, which is accessed by your own house door, is entirely private, well appointed and features a newly refurbished kitchen, utility / boot room, dining area and living room. The spacious bedroom is en suite; there are views from all rooms overlooking the garden. The well equipped  kitchen is restfully designed in muted colours with fully adjustable lighting and also features an island unit with breakfast bar, brand new cooker, induction hob, Belfast sink, Siemens dishwasher and underfloor heating. The utility has a washer dryer for guests’ use and space to put bags etc out of the way.

The dining room has seating for three or four and the lounge features a large plasma TV and ‘optimyst’ woodburner – all the pleasure of a log burning effect and heat without the hassle! In addition both are also served by underfloor heating.

The bedroom is en suite and has a new and comfortable king size bed with new mattress; electric blankets are provided on each side of the bed for independent control of coziness requirements!. For an additional guest a full sized Tempur mattress on the floor is available. Alternatively there is a double sofa bed in the lounge or a z bed for smaller children.

Guests are warmly invited to share the gardens and enjoy the sun on the patio.  Wifi is available in the Garden Room annex; you are welcome to use it to download emails /browse the internet etc. If you would like to check in or out outside the usual hours, please ask and I will certainly accommodate you if I can.

My style of hosting is relaxed and friendly. If I’m around then I am generally pottering in the back garden. I will try to do all that I can to help make your stay really enjoyable and provide any advice, info or little touches that will add up to some great memories for you.  I also enjoy travelling so may simply give you access information and leave you to it.
