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.
