Dunhill Barn

Petersfield, Hampshire
Bed & Breakfast

Gloriously rustic B&B with a friendly, relaxed vibe. Wood fires, beams galore, doors onto a pretty garden, convivial breakfasts...


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 4


Arrive for Jan’s homemade cake and feel quite at home. Her relaxed, rustic house is full of natural tones, quirky pieces, candles and twinkling wood fires. Bedrooms brim with beamy character; the main barn has the odd steep stair and low bit; Cartshed is ideal for a sharing party; snug Granary is on two floors – hop across stepping stones for a bathroom in the barn. Breakfast is in the stunning living area of the barn – light streams in through big windows while you tuck into home-baked banana muffins, granola, berries, a full cooked spread. You’re in the heart of South Downs National Park; thriving Petersfield and heaps of good pubs are nearby.

Dunhill Barn is a magical place - beautiful open plan living space and bedrooms providing a tranquil cosy atmosphere ideal for families or groups of friends to enjoy. Jan was the perfect host along with her daughter. She went above and beyond making us feel very at home..she had even baked a cake for our arrival, and offered non-feather bedding for those with allergies. I would highly recommend Dunhill Barn not only for it's beautiful setting but also for the personal service Jan provides.

Steph, Surbiton

Dunhill Barn is absolutely stunning. We stayed here the night before and the night of my wedding with the bridesmaids and my family. Jan is the best host - so attentive and she really had thought of everything. She had cake ready when we arrived, and her breakfast was amazing. The barn has such character which made it an excellent location to have photos before we went to the wedding which was at the Tithe Barn in Petersfield. Could not recommend this place more, it's simply wonderful.

Becky, Bristol

Jan is the warmest host with the most immaculate taste, having arrived after an outing at Peppa Pig World, our two young boys were made to feel right at home, borrowing toys and having special children's breakfasts. We stayed in the cartshed which offered the perfect balance of privacy when we wanted to eat as a family, breakfasts were the real highlight however in the main barn. For those looking for rustic and authentic style, we couldn't recommend more.

Hayley, Greater london

We stayed at Dunhillbarn this weekend as part of a wedding party-what an amazing place. The barn itself is beautiful, the breakfast was delicious and Jan was so hospitable. I thoroughly recommend staying here, we didn't want to leave! 10 stars from us!

Emma, London

Such a fabulous and relaxing spot. We stayed in the Cartshed, and squeezed in my husband and I, plus two sons, with the help of an extra futon bed downstairs. Jan is wonderfully welcoming, and the Cartshed has all you need to be comfortable and cosy. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Sue, Besancon

Beautiful place to stay. Jan is so welcoming and was really helpful before and during our stay. We stayed in the cart shed and it was fantastic! I would thoroughly recommend. Thanks Jan!

Helen, Liverpool

What a beautiful find. If I could give it 6 stars I would. We stayed in the cart shed which was brimming with character and charm. Extremely comfortable beds with lovely pure linen bedding, sheepskin rugs on the floor, beams galore and cosy living area. Breakfast was plentiful and beautifully presented, absolutely delicious setting us up for the day. Highly recommend.

Suzie, Knutsford

We stayed at Dunhill Barn as part of a wedding party this weekend. What a beautiful place to stay, truly relaxing, absolutely stunning buildings and amazing hospitality! Breakfast by Jan was delicious, on par with a top hotel and served with smiles and extra care that you only get in such a personal setting. Highly recommended!

Edith, London

We arrived on a baking hot day after a long drive with two over heated young children and stressed parents. Within 2 minutes we had left all that behind. There's a glorious quality of peace in every corner of the space that Jan has created, and Jan herself has the knack of making you feel truly welcome and at ease. There's a feeling that life is better here - beautiful rooms, plenty of space, quiet and comfy corners to read a book or soak up the sun, grassy lawns to cartwheel across or just laze on. We loved being able to use the pool and were awestruck by the breakfast - everything perfect.
