A beautifully renovated 1000 sq ft barn, perfect for couples, friends or families, nestled at the heart of one of Hampshire's most picturesque villages, 10 mins from Winchester and 75 mins from Waterloo.

Your hosts Lisa and Josh welcome you to The Post Barn, formerly the annexe of the village post office, now restored for those who wish to walk, run or cycle in the surrounding countryside...or enjoy all that Winchester has to offer.

The space
The Post Barn is split across 2 open-plan floors. On the ground floor you will find a lounge space, large dining table, kitchen (with fridge freezer, microwave, induction hobs, slow cooker (upon request), kettle, toaster and Nespresso machine), rainfall shower room and w/c with wash basin, all enjoying underfloor heating. Upstairs the space is open-plan and divided into 3 distinct areas by wooden beams. Area 1 features king size bed. Area 2 features a single sofa bed, chest of drawers and clothes rail. Area 3 features 2 refurbished Victorian 'Harry Potter' single beds (perfect for kids or adults). Area 3 can be closed off by a curtain. Note: we refer to upstairs as having 3 bedrooms but please understand these are not separated by walls, just the beams (see photos). All bed linen and towels are provided.

The walls are adorned with art work by local artists. This art is available to buy and changes regularly, often with the output of regular Artist in Residence barn-stays run by the hosts.

The Post Barn has its own private garden area complete with outdoor table and chairs, charcoal BBQ, fire pit and log store. This garden is fenced off from the garden next door, offering complete privacy. Cyclists are very welcome, there is a bike shed available for those wishing to store bikes.

The Post Barn sits immediately off Woodman Lane and shares a driveway with The Post House, home of your hosts, immediately next door.

Where you’ll be

Sparsholt, Hampshire, United Kingdom

The Post Barn is separated from Woodman Lane by the village shop, formerly The Well House, rumoured to be the smallest Post Office in the country! In the shop you will find a wide range of local fare including bread, cheese, sausages, bacon, eggs, soft drinks, snacks and sweets. Just across the road is St Stephens Church, one of the most quintessentially English churches you will find. Our lovely local pub, The Plough (just 500 yards walk down the road) has recently been refurbished and has a great menu for lunch and dinner.

Winchester is less than a 10 minute drive away (£10 taxi ride), or a 45 minute walk through the countryside, for those wishing to soak in the sights and sounds of Hampshire's glorious rural landscape. This beautiful city, regularly the winner of 'best place to live in England' awards, is steeped in history and home to Winchester Cathedral, Winchester College, Winchester School of Art, a high street lined with premium shopping and food markets and a wide range of chain and independent restaurants and bars.

Being located in the heart of southern England, The Post Barn is also the perfect base for you to visit locations such as the New Forest (30mins drive), Stonehenge (40mins drive), the beach (40mins drive), Isle of Wight (via ferry), Oxford (50 mins drive), London (50mins train), the Cotswolds (1hr 15mins drive) and Bath (1hr 30mins drive).

The hosts, who have lived in Winchester for 10 years, will be happy to help you with any recommendations during your stay, please just ask.

My family and I have lived in and around Winchester for 10 years. We have never been happier than when living in Sparsholt, a beautiful, friendly and peaceful village surrounded by stunning countryside. We are a healthy and creative family. We spend as much time as possible outdoors walking, running and cycling. My husband knows the best cycling routes around us, regardless of whether you want to ride 10 miles or 100 miles! We find the countryside to be both relaxing and energising, not to mention a great creative inspiration. Artists sometimes stay in The Post Barn and their work adorns the walls, available to buy. Our house is immediately next door to The Post Barn. We love where we live and we’re proud to share it with you.
