About the property

Converted barn in Red Shoot Camping Park, Linwood, near Ringwood, New Forest, Hampshire, England - Idyllic setting for enjoying the beauty of nature

New in 2014, The Byre is a converted cattle barn, now a pristine holiday rental cottage. Benefitting from all of the conveniences of the Red Shoot Camping Park, but with its own patio / barbeque area and the Red Shoot Inn close by for when you’d like someone else to do the cooking or pouring, it is perfect for relaxing with a drink as you watch the late afternoon sunset! Fabulous New Forest setting amongst abundant wildlife, free-roaming ponies and cattle, yet with easy access to the popular villages of the Forest as well as miles of stunning sandy beaches of Dorset and Hampshire; from Southampton and Lymington round to Swanage and Weymouth, taking in Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole. Where better to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside with the freedom to explore as far as the refreshing breezes of the coast if you choose?

Our stay at the Byre

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week at the Byre with our daughter and grandson. A warm welcome awaited us.The property was of a high standard, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Every attention to detail was made. The campsite was small and very family friendly. An ideal location for visiting all parts of the forest and coast and a pub on the doorstep was great for meals.We would return again.

The coast, beaches and nautical heritage of Dorset and Hampshire from Southampton to Lymington, Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole are all easily accessible and can be reached within approximately half an hour by car.


Bournemouth International and Southampton airports are roughly equidistant at approximately 20-30 minutes by car. The area is ideally situated for exploring its magic and beauty by foot, bicycle, horse or car!


We are approximately 5 miles from the fascinating market town of Ringwood and approximately 6 miles from the historic market town of Fordingbridge. Further west is the cathedral city of Salisbury and to the east, the exclusive yachting haven of Lymington
