It has been tastefully converted with fabulous views over rolling fields and forest, perfect for couples or overnight business trips. The Hayloft is situated right on a bridleway leading to wonderful woodland and rolling countryside and offers beautiful walks and cycle routes right on your doorstep. For those on an overnight business trip, a continental breakfast will be supplied to include fresh coffee, tea, fresh fruit, croissants, fruit juice, jam, butter and milk. Basic toiletries will also be supplied. The location of this accommodation makes it an ideal base to explore the South of England enabling easy access to the magnificent cathedral cities of Winchester, only a few miles away and Salisbury with all their award winning pubs and restaurants, local market towns of Stockbridge and Romsey, the New Forest with all it has to offer and even Isle of Wight, London and Bath are accessible as day trips. The accommodation itself has a kitchen/dining/sitting area downstairs leading up to a large open plan lounge/bedroom area with a shower room off. There is also a pool/snooker table if you fancy it and a stunning balcony area where you can enjoy the tranquility of the countryside and try to spot the frequently seen buzzards flying overhead, as the sun falls behind the distant hills. There is also an outdoor eating area on the veranda off the kitchen, again overlooking rolling countryside. WARNING - as can be seen in the photos, there are low beams on either side of the room upstairs. There is a community-run village shop within 1/2 mile and The Plough, an excellent pub/restaurant within 3/4 mile. The village is also lucky to have Lainston House Country Hotel just down the road, providing a perfect venue for a special afternoon tea or early evening cocktail!! The Hayloft could be rented together with The Old Tractor Barn, perfect for family gatherings perhaps where Granny and Grandpa could escape for some peace and quiet, but still be close to the action when required! Also if you have young children, we can set up sleepover beds/travel cots - there is plenty of floor area! Or, even better, make a den up under the pool table - heaven for the little ones!! A few Comments received so far:- Beau said 'Was an absolute pleasure visiting the hayloft. Beautiful spacious build with great views and great neighbours. I'd highly recommend. I could of stayed much longer than a weekend and will definitely be returning' Rebecca said'We had a wonderful night staying at the Hayloft, it is such a peaceful and beautiful place to be. We arrived at night and it was easy to find with Debbie's directions. There was a real wow factor when we woke up and opened the curtains onto the balcony to see the panoramic views of rolling countryside. The birds, horses, lamas, it was a real treat. Debbie had put together a lovely pick and mix breakfast with lots of treats. We can't thank you enough for a lovely stay and hope to stay for longer in the future!' Claire said 'We had an excellent stay with Debbie, she made us feel completely at home and the Hayloft was beautifully decorated. It offers the potential for great walks in the countryside coupled with easy access to Winchester.' More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Debbie even gave us a lift into Winchester itself which was kind of her. The Hayloft was so clean and fresh it really was like a home from home, it was so comfortable....More

About the neighbourhood
The Hayloft is a fabulous holiday accommodation set in farmland with wonderful views of horses grazing in rolling paddocks and chickens pecking around with direct access on to a bridleway, which leads into miles and miles of beautiful woodland.
How to get there
The postcode is SO21 2PA. On arriving in Sparsholt, leave the church on your right hand side and the Post Office/village shop on your left, continue driving through the village. After approx. 1/2 a mile, you will see a lay by on the left hand side and a cattery sign leading you up a bumpy lane on the right. Follow that and you will find, after approx 500 yards, The Hayloft immediately after the large green barn. Parking is in the shared driveway with the house, in front of the garage/annex.
