Welcome to The Old Barn
Posted on July 17th 2019
The Old Barn is a luxury self catering holiday cottage to rent in Throop, at the edge of rural Bournemouth, a stone's throw from the River Stour.
A newly refurbished (with love) barn in a beautiful semi-rural setting in the village of 'Throop'. The Barn was built in the late 1700's/ early 1800's as a malthouse, an outbuilding for the neighbouring Stour View, a late Georgian House built in 1790.
The malthouse was used to make ships biscuits in the latter 1800's and as a shooting range for a local rifle club in the mid 20th century. It was converted into three residential dwellings in the early 1990's.
It has the added bonus of its proximity to Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and The New Forest and is a short drive from the miles of award winning sandy Bournemouth beaches.
There is also Castle Point, a very popular shopping centre that is 2 mins drive away and has many of the major shops plus restaurants and coffee shops.
However if you require peace and quiet, the most you will hear in this cottage is the happy neigh of the horse in the field opposite (our children have named him Alfie and he's greedy!).
There is a lovely walk from the front door and fishing can also be arranged.
We welcome your dogs (we have 2) and your children, if there is anything we haven't provided (our children are older and we've forgotten) then just shout.
We've based this cottage on our many happy stays elsewhere and hope that we've re-created that for you.
