Barhi Welsh Springers and Garden are based on the eastern edge of the New Forest, Hampshire, England. The people behind Barhi are Finuala Barnes and her husband Brian Tarnoff, ably assisted by Carol Jackson.

The word Barhi came from a combination of Finuala's surname and the name of one of the Welsh Springers we owned at the time - Rhian. As such, the "h" is silent and it is pronounced "Bar-ree".

Whilst the Welsh Springers are basically members of the family, we do show them and have the occasional litter. Finuala obviously started showing Welsh Springers as a "babe in arms" as she has now been showing them for over twenty five years. She has also been judging the breed for ten years.

The garden was designed to meet the needs of the family and shows how you can have a beautiful garden and dogs. We were very pleased when it was accepted to open to the public under the National Gardens Scheme in 2007.

Each year, we create a newsletter and post it here on the website. We hope you enjoy reading them.
