    Diane – 8 Dec 2018
    "Bakers Barn suited us very well as a base for visiting family in the area. The dog-safe garden was a real bonus. The huge kitchen diner could fit in a much larger party than we were. The Christmas decorations were an unexpected and much appreciated extra."
    Sarah – 10 Nov 2018

    "Fantastic place - so close to lots of walks in the New Forest & 3 pubs - all dog friendly - within walking distance. Cottage was immaculate & had everything you needed with a lovely garden to boot. Would definitely stay here again."

    "Spent a great week at Bakers Barn, the cottage is equipped with everything you could need. The welcome gifts on our arrival were very much appreciated And there was plenty to do with everything within easy reach , I would recommend the cottage to anybody and would most definitely stay there again."
    Louise – 29 Sep 2018
    "Excellent stay at Bakers Barn! clean, tidy, huge amount of room, great shower and beds. We liked the garden for our dogs and it was fully enclosed which some say is but when you get there it isnt bakers barn was. Excellent location for exploring the new forest, Dorset and Wiltshire. There is about 3 local pubs one being 5 min walk away and also shops and a park about 10-15 mins walk. We loved the fact that we could self check in as we always usually arrive later than planned coming from up north so it ment we didnt have to disturb anyone. We would stay again it was perfect : )"
    Sally – 22 Sep 2018

    RUPRAI – 20 Aug 2018
    "We arrived at Bakers Barn after a 5 hour drive. On opening the door the kitchen looked lovely. We had a quick look around and the bedrooms and bathroom were nice and clean. Coming back into the kitchen to make a cup of tea and that is where the initial wow factor disappeared. All cutlery looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly with remnants of food and coffee stains in mugs, plates and pans. The oven doors were thick with grease and hadn't been cleaned. The worksurface was sticky and again not cleaned. The tiled backsplash was filthy. The cupboard doors had tea/coffee stains running down them again not cleaned. The kickboards were disgusting and filthy. On opening the cupboards we found half eaten packs of crisps , cereals etc. Same with the fridge it had previous guests half eaten food and bottles in. The kitchen bin has no lid and was overflowing again with previous guests rubbish. When you pay close to £1000 for a cottage you shouldn't have to be faced with this scenario. The master bedroom doors are hard to open and close and the front patio doors have splinters of wood coming off which caught my wife's dress and ripped it on entering the property. The place needs a very good clean and then would warrant the price to stay there. Some of the points mentioned above have been pointed out by previous guests but looks like no one has acted on them. I have never left a bad review of a holiday cottage but unfortunately I had no choice with Bakers Barn."
    Jenny – 5 Aug 2018
    "Excellent location, equipped to a very high standard, lovely cottage but unfortunately it needed a really good deep clean. Thick dust on tiles in kitchen and bathroom, seal around tiles very grubby. Swarming with flies in every room. If it was deep cleaned it would be perfect and would warrant 5 stars without a shadow of doubt."
    Abigail – 2 Aug 2018
    "Lovely cottage, lovely place to stay, just 2 problems, lots of flys (expected in the new forest) but so bad that we had to keep the doors and windows shut in 30* heat and no fans provided so I spent £90 on 2! Only other problem is bedroom leading onto the patio is on the small side with next to no storage, we stayed for a week and could not fit all of our clothes into the small wardrobe, apart from these 2 points, it was a lovely holiday, cottage very close to pubs with great restaurants, Avon beach and the new forest, idyllic area, place could do with a good spring clean and the windows and doors need attention & a good clean."
    Ian – 23 Jul 2018
    "Having read other reviews I have to say we were rather disappointed. On a minor point the 'welcome pack' of the cheapest Cava from the local Co-op and a handful of Roses chocs that had been hanging about for ages or left in the sun (plus a pint of milk and a few small bottles of water) fell way short of our recent experiences elsewhere. Never found the expected doggy treats. The place feels a bit neglected and needs some basic maintenance. The French doors to the garden and front entrance were hard to open fully and even more difficult to properly lock again. Having wrestled the utility room door open we never shut it again as the catch was so dodgy. Regarding cleanliness; we found a few cobwebs here and there and the table and worksurfaces in the kitchen were sticky. We had to go to the Co-op and buy dishcloths to help clean as none were provided. In the fridge were a selection of commodities left by previous occupiers, many were way out of date and unusable - the cleaners should remove such items. We thought it would be a good idea to fill the chilled water dispenser in the fridge, only to have the contents dribble out of the tap onto the kitchen floor. With regard to the gardens etc., don't be fooled by the photo's on the website - even making due allowance for the remarkably hot weather the collection of scruffy pots with dead/dying plants in was unacceptable. Added to the odd collection of tat and rusty paraphernalia alongside a broken chair and weeks of accumulated dead leaves that you walk into the house all the time gives the impression the 'gardener' has gone missing. The next door rental property is a complete contrast. Our efforts on watering and sweeping up may have revived things a bit.I hear you say 'did you contact the owner?' - no we didn't because none of these matters individually amounted to a federal case, but the overall effect was negative. However, contrary to our other experiences renting cottages, nobody contacted us proactively to see if all was well. Not much to ask when paying upwards of £800 for week's stay.On a more positive note, the location was great affording easy access to the beaches, forest and decent local shops (Co-op, Boots, butcher/deli, newsagent, pet shop and chippy) plus three dog friendly pubs within walking distance ranging from good honest pub grub (Carpenters Arms) to a 2 AA rosette place that charges sensible prices (Three Tuns, not to be missed)."

    "A good base to explore the new forest. The village has three pubs which provide a range of eating from gastro to good old pub food."
