Situated north of the New Forest in Lover near Redlynch, this desirable, rural, thatched barn conversion with high vaulted ceilings is an absolute must for a family or couples holiday. Boasting a superb outdoor swimming pool, zip wire and lake, Whiteshoot Farm, set in six acres with far reaching views, is well equipped, offering spacious luxury living accommodation in four bedrooms for a maximum of six people. The buildings which are full of character form the remains of a small New Forest farm dating back to 1829, with this outstanding, award winning transformation taking place within the last 10 years.

Maria the housekeeper left us an amazing basket of goodies, made sure there was milk and butter in the fridge and even an homemade crumble. She really did pay at lot of attention to detail and she was lovely!
We really enjoyed our stay despite wet weather. The barn was welcoming and well equipped with entertainment. Maria showed us around and provided goodies in a welcome pack including a very tasty crumble. Restaurant recommendations: La Lambretta in Fordingbridge. We also found Kevin of Downton minibus very helpful and reliable.
Absolutely - a special mention to Maria the housekeeper who was so helpful and accommodating - we will definitely look to book again!
We had a lovely stay. Pool fantastic. Close to local amenities. Maria was very helpful.
We all really enjoyed our stay in such a peaceful location. Thanks to Maria, the housekeeper, who looked after us very well.
it was an amazing property and so well looked after. We had the most fantastic time and look forward to coming back again soon! Thank you Maria for the warm welcome and delicious apple pie, thank you to the owner for the love that they've put into their home and thank you to New Forest Cottages for making it possible for us to stay in this wonderful cottage! I'm in the PropTech industry myself so know how difficult (and rewarding) it can be at times!
This property was everything we had hoped for, and more. The mod-cons and Maria's homely touches were a perfect balance. Grateful thanks for helping us achieve a memorable family holiday.
Crumble, wine and breakfast foods upon arrival was lovely touch! Zip wire was awesome and the lake is beautiful!! One of the best properties we have ever stayed at!! The local pub The Kings Head was fantastic, and the Rosé & Thistle in Rockbourne were exceptional!!
Maria was fantastic.
We had an amazing time at Whiteshoot farm and highly recommend.
We had a most enjoyable and restful stay in spite of the weather not being brilliant. We were only able to laze around the pool and swim one day because of the weather but the grounds were great. Perfect for walking around and doing some bird watching. We enjoyed sampling the local pubs and generally walking in the New Forest. It is very peaceful, perfect for a complete get away. We hope to return to Whiteshoot Farm.
Lovely house in a beautiful location. Close to Salisbury and all of the New Forest so didn't have to drive too far.Very relaxing holiday, was able to get good use of the pool and extensive garden due to lovely hot weather.
We loved our stay at Whiteshoot Farm. Once ensconced you feel you're in your own little perfect rural idyll with everything you could possibly need. The weather was mixed so we didn't spend as much time in the pool as we'd have liked, but it was always a treat to take a dip and when the weather turned bad, there was no better excuse to stretch out in front of the fire in the spacious, toasty-warm living room. We also loved all the foodie treats waiting for us in the kitchen on arrival, in particular, Maria's absolutely delicious berry crumble. All in all, it was perfect for our multi-generational family gathering and I couldn't recommend it enough.
Fantastic weekend. We visited with friends for my husbands 50th. Even the teenagers enjoyed the great outdoors. The barn was beautiful with a welcome pack and even a crumble!!!!! I didn't want to go home xxx beautiful. Well done xxx
Absolutely stunning property. Thoughtful welcome pack was much appreciated.
Superb house and location. Very well appointed and lovely welcome gifts, especially the crumble from Maria. She is a lovely lady who made us very welcome.
Perfect for our family of five including children aged 3 to 6 yrs. Great location and house with a lovely pool.
Some lovely touches with the welcome pack from the property. Great communications from the company. Pretty impressive service all round.
