The Old Dairy


This delightful single storey building has been converted from the former dairy into a lovely holiday accommodation. It is placed in a stunning location with beautiful views to the Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and westward to the New Forest.

On this working farm in spring you might see lambs born, cows calving or walk through the beautiful bluebells of Crabwood a mere 5 minutes away. During the summer swallows hatch in the farm buildings whilst the buzzards often wheel overhead. As summer turns to autumn the local woods surrounding the farm turn their leaves the most wonderful shades of red and gold. In its turn winter has its own treasures, warming walks through the woods and along the Clarendon Way, returning to the welcoming warmth of The Old Dairy.

Within 10 minutes is the historic city of Winchester, featuring Arthur’s Round Table and military museums, to name but a few of its features. Portsmouth with its maritime history, Mary Rose and the Old Dockyard, Southampton Cruise Liner centre, Beaulieu and the expanses of the New Forest are all within driving distance.
