The
Experience

This 16th-century barn has been renovated with flair by creative hosts. They live in the farmhouse, and the barn is all yours. The living space is open-plan with masses of beautiful beams, sofas by the wood-burner, dining area and well-equipped kitchen. Bedrooms (one down, one mezzanine) are inviting with more honey-coloured wood, natural tones, well-dressed beds and pots of flowers; the double has a striking freestanding bath in the room. Clarissa provides all you need for breakfast – rustle it up when you want. Easy for Goodwood events, Chichester, Arundel; walk the South Downs Way, browse antique shops, spend a day on the beach.

Reviews

Wonderful, wonderful stay in this beautiful barn where Clarissa has thought of everything, from local bacon and eggs to fresh flowers in sweet little bouquets by the bed and in the huge living room. Lazy breakfast on the terrace followed by a wallow in the gorgeous bath. Heaven!

Sarah, Bath

I couldn't fault the place. Clarissa and John have created a warm, cosy, comfortable bolthole - all craggy beams and snug corners and intimate lighting. It feels like an ancient barn yet efficient underfloor heating, electronic blinds and a modern kitchen bring it firmly into the 21st century. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal and set in the most spectacular countryside - the South Downs are just moments away. Comedy value added with Hector and Dudley - the friendly farm dogs. Didn't want to leave.
