Thanks for a lovely week

  • Review Submitted: 16-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2014
Thanks for a lovely week - our first time in the South Downs. Enjoyed lots of walks, Fishbourne Roman Palace, Weald & Downland Museum, Portsmouth Historic Dockyards and "War Horse" in Southampton. And the tennis - currently the score is one match all - will have to return for the decider! Thanks also for the breakfast!

The perfect base for a very enjoyable week

  • Review Submitted: 16-Mar-2014

The perfect base for a very enjoyable week. Warm and comfortable with the provisions awaiting our arrival being most welcome - thank you very much. The children loved their "attic room" and the use of the tennis court - for football of course! We thoroughly enjoyed visiting a number of local attractions with plans already being made for a return visit - for those we missed.

“Wonderful break in the South Downs”

  • Review Submitted: 16-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
Rubens Barn fully lives up to all the other reviews. We had a wonderful stay here and my children adored having the upstairs bedroom to themselves. The owner had also put a lot of thought into keeping them happy, even putting out a couple of child scooters for them to use on the adjacent tennis court. (TripAdvisor 5 stars)

Wonderful Cottage and Excellent Location

  • Review Submitted: 16-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
What a find that my wife picked up off the internet. Wonderful cottage in an excellent location with great views and places to walk. Arriving with no milk or bread, the arrival pack was a great surprise. The place is like being at home without the hassle's, everything you would need for a short or long stay. Having the TV for evenings in was great but having the internet access made it so much easier for planning each day. Having a place where we could bring the dog was lovely and the great weather, we had a wonderful time thanks to Rob and Rachel for a lovely place to spend a peaceful week away.

"A lovely bolthole in a beautiful setting"

"A lovely bolthole in a beautiful setting"
  • Review Submitted: 30-Jun-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2012
We stayed at Rubens Barn for three nights. The first was as a couple for our wedding anniversary and the second two nights with our son. The great thing about this property is that it fit both requirements brilliantly. It is snug and romantic and yet robust enough to cope with an energetic 8 year old!

There is lovely attention to detail- the spec is really high and it was great to have bathrobes, nice toiletries and breakfast goodies.
Rob and Rachel, the owners, were friendly and helpful and the setting of the cottage is delightful. Great local pub, walks from the door, perfect peace and quiet- we couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended.
