Pop's Barn

Pop’s Barn is named after the owner’s grandfather and is a secret little hideaway behind the high street in the bustling village of Downton. Walking down a narrow path leading off a side lane, you stumble upon this pretty brick building set in its own private walled garden.

Despite its seclusion, the cottage is perfectly located for the numerous attractions this popular area has to offer. Pop’s Barn has been well designed to maximise its small interior spaces making a cosy retreat for two people.

Inside, the décor is most certainly traditional, with wooden floors and wooden beams through walls and ceilings adding to the period design. Spread across one level there is one double bedroom behind a curtained opening, with ensuite shower room with shower and WC. Open plan living/dining area with sofa bed.

The large garden can provide comfort and relaxation for plenty of guests, with the outdoor furniture being used for al fresco dining in its pretty and sunny garden. The village of Downton rests on the banks of the River Avon, conveniently in between the Cranborne Chase AONB and the New Forest National Park. Pop’s Barn is a superb base for those looking to explore the area, with a small range of local amenities to answer your needs.

The Cranborne Chase will be right on your doorstep, offering a network of scenic walking and cycling paths passing a number of charming villages. Pop’s Barn offers all this and more to those visiting.

All on one level: 1 x double bedroom (via step down through curtained opening) plus ensuite shower room with shower and WC. Open plan living/dining area with sofa bed. Kitchen.
