In April 2007 Holden Farm at Cheriton Nr Winchester joined the franchise. Charlie and Susie Corbett are the third generation to farm Holden Farm which has been in the family since 1911.
Until recently the farm was run as a mixed enterprise with Arable, Dairy and a Sheep Flock. The past few years have brought many changes to British farming and Holden farm is a prime example. The Arable farming is now done on a contract basis by a neighbour, the Dairy herd has been dispersed and a horse enterprise has been introduced.
The farm is thoroughly committed to conservation and many schemes have been introduced to enhance the landscape and encourage wildlife. These schemes include the planting and coppicing of over 3 miles of hedgerows, which in conjunction with providing grass margins around the arable fields has increased the number of song birds dramatically. Lane End Down has been reinstated as organically run downland and after 8 years over 20 different types of wild flower can be found. Chalk Hill Blue Butterflies were seen on 2010. It is fortunate that the South Downs Way runs through the farm enabling many people to enjoy the results of these efforts.
Susie arranges school visits to the farm – click here for further details | School Visits

As a storage veteran, I felt my choice of using Barn Store was the right one! Friendly staff, the barn felt secure and set in a beautiful setting. The rates were very competitive and it all felt very flexible and easy going.
Very friendly and helpful service at all times, and completely flexible.
Can’t recommend Barn Store highly enough – the space and staff are fantastic.
The complete storage process was seamless and efficient. The courtesy afforded me, especially on the odd occasions when I locked myself out, speaks volumes for your patience and consideration for the customer. I would not hesitate to use your facility again should the need arise. Thank you.
I would just like to thank you for the storage at Barn Store. With the bad weather at the start of the year and after six months of storage it was a pleasure to see that our property had been kept dry, safe and dust free during this period.

The experience of storage at Holden Farm Barn Store was extremely good. Never any hassle and very polite help and service.
Barn Store at least helps remove part of the stress of moving.
We had extensive building work on our house earlier this year and had to move everything into storage for nearly six months. We were really pleased with the service we received at Barn Store and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. The site itself is easy to get to, clean and well maintained. There were never any problems moving things into or out of storage and we could have access whenever we needed. The most impressive thing about Barn Store, however, was the help we received from Lisa and Charlie. They were always friendly and professional and couldn’t have done more to make things easy for us. We would like to extend a big thank you to them both for making this part of our building project as stress free as it could have been.
We have been thoroughly satisfied with the storage facilities, the security of the premises, and the excellent staff who are friendly and very willing to help.
Very happy with the facility offered and would recommend.
