Why we love this

  • Beautiful barn conversion on a farm estate in the Hampshire countryside
  • Treat yourself to the farm's delicious breakfast (available at an extra charge)
  • The local pub and Silchester’s Roman ruins are just a few minutes away

Locally sourced antiques and upcycled materials from the farm blend beautifully with handpicked artwork and items including handblown Hampshire glassware.

The large, open-plan living area comprises the lounge, kitchen and dining spaces and is fantastic for socialising. Original wooden ceiling beams, wood flooring and a log burner all add to the welcoming and cosy feel.

Gather together on the comfy sofas around the television. Or enjoy a meal at the huge farmhouse dining table. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’d expect to find including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

If you don’t feel like cooking dinner, the farm’s chef can be hired to plan, prepare and cook a private dining menu. Ingredients such as fruit, vegetables and herbs are harvested from the farm’s kitchen garden or foraged from the farmland, while local suppliers provide other delicious produce.

There are six bedrooms, each one individually decorated in the ‘house style’ which emphasises local and personal touches.

On the ground floor there are two bedrooms. One with a king-size bed and an en-suite with a freestanding bath and a shower, the other with two single beds. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms.

Outside is beautifully landscaped with a pond to the front of the property. There is a designated outside area which can be used by guests of The Barnhouse and use of other areas of the farm could be available for use with prior arrangement with the owners.

Need more room? The Farmhouse, which is next to The Barnhouse, can accommodate a further 15 guests and has its own large private garden and a tennis court is available. To accommodate an additional two guests, a separate barn housing a suite with a king-size bed, an en-suite shower room and tea and coffee making facilities is available.

Hosting an event? There are two separate barns, each with a capacity for 140 guests, plus a bar, an outside barn and an on-site catering service – the ideal solution for a sophisticated, mid-week corporate event.

Please contact our Guests Services team to discuss your options.

The owners will greet you on arrival and show you into the property. A housekeeper is usually on site during the day. There may be other guests at the site as the farm estate also hosts corporate events and workshops.

The property has adopted many environmentally friendly measures including composting garden waste, recycling and replacing plastic where possible. The property also supports a native species planting scheme and encourages its rare breed sheep to mow the lawns ‘naturally’.

If you'd like to offset the carbon emissions from your trip, get in touch and we can arrange this for a small fee.

Location of 'The Barnhouse


The neighbourhood

The property is located on the owners’ farm estate in the Hampshire village of Silchester between Reading, Basingstoke and Newbury. The nearest pub is The Calleva Arms, which is just 1 minute away and serves first-class tipples and traditional meals.

The town of Silchester is famous for its Roman connections and was once known as Calleva Atrebatum. After the Romans left the town, it was never reoccupied so what remains of the walls and amphitheatre are some of the best examples of Roman defences in England.
