    About this property

    Light, airy barn conversion, set in Cranborne Chase and the West Wiltshire Downs, Salisbury with its famous spire close by.
    Higher Farm is located just 6 miles from the New Forest National Park in the quiet, picturesque village of Martin within a conservation area and on the edge of Martin Down National Nature Reserve. These two single-storey barn conversions, adjoining one another, were formerly the saddle room and stables for the small farm and have been transformed into very comfortable, tastefully furnished and immaculately presented holiday accommodation with a contemporary, light and airy feel. On the farm guests are welcome to walk up and see the animals, which including chickens, horses and ponies and a small flock of sheep grazing in the fields. Each property has a personal sitting out area at the front, in addition to tables and chairs on the orchard. There is also a bicycle store, barbecue and croquet set. The village of Martin is set in the Cranborne Chase and West Wilshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (aonb) and offers excellent scenic walks and cycle rides from the farm. The village has its own small community-run shop which opens twice a day on week days (9am-11am and 5pm-6pm) and once in the morning on Saturdays (9am-12.30pm) as well as an historic Norman church. The medieval city of Salisbury, 8 miles, has its famous cathedral spire and close, individual shops, pubs and restaurants, a theatre and a cinema which is housed in the old wool market, offers a unique cinema experience. The New Forest National Park boundary is a picturesque drive of around 6 miles and Godshill always has lots of New Forest ponies and cattle to enjoy.

    "A lovely welcome by our host, fresh flowers and a box of biscuits, with all the ingredients to make a cup of tea or coffee on our arrival - set the tone.Accommodation comfortable and very well equipped. Excellent information pack.The frying pan had lost a lot of it's non stickiness, but this is just picky. I'd definitely recommend The stables and hope to return again."

    "We booked the Stables for a family Christmas getaway and it was perfect! The welcome pack and decorations were the icing on the cake. The cottage was fantastically equipped with everything we could possibly need, with some fantastic extra homely touches. It was ideal for our young family, cosy and safe. Hosts are very friendly, living close by and are on hand to help. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this cottage to anybody looking for a quiet break away from it all."
