Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic weekend away for a special family celebration (the big 40) - a real home from home! Notes taken on the colour scheme/interior decor! Beautiful location: perfect for walking, shopping, sightseeing, yet so quiet and comfortable with no hustle and bustle. We hope to return and would 100% recommend you, you really have a beautiful place here."

Brooklands Barn - New Years Eve 2009

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I decided to book Brooklands Barn for 3 nights over the New Years Eve weekend. As it was also my husbands birthday we arranged for some of our friends to get there early as a surprise.

'Wow' was the first thing I think a lot of us said when we pulled up the driveway. The converted barn was everything we hoped it would be and more! Lovely underfloor heating downstairs, a huge dining area for us to congregate and eat together, a kitchen that had a large amount of crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment, a comfortable and cosy living room and it's only private pool - just for us! The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and warm with their own LCD televisions (not that we used them much) and mostly with ensuite facilities.

Beautiful views and walks on the doorstep and nice pubs. I would definitely recommend this for large families or group of friends like us looking to get away together.

The owner was extemely friendly and helpful, close by if we needed anything, but also happy to leave us to our devices.

I would thoroughly recommend Brooklands Barn. It would be nice to go back in the summer time to make use of the huge patio area where we did also spy a barbeque!

Brilliant stay from start to finish

  • 4 of 5

We chose Brooklands for a long overdue family weekend away and it did not fail to impress.

The views were breathtaking, the accommodation was outstanding and finished to a high standard, the pool was a winner for both children and adults in our party, and the weather was kind enough for us to enjoy a wine and a BBQ in the courtyard. Having 3 kitchens and 2 living areas meant that families could have their own space as well as being able to all gather together in the main barn.

The owner Claire was very helpful and at hand when we needed extra towels.

If I had to be picky I would say that the kitchen could use some baking trays and sharper knives and if you wanted to add a hot tub in the courtyard Claire it would be heaven!!!!

Thank you for a great stay, great memories were made.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and it's great to hear you may be coming back next year! Thanks for the feedback too, new knives and baking trays - check! The pool and sauna do work well together, especially as the pool is indoors and heated all year around.

Wonderful Venue!

  • 4 of 5

We loved Brooklands! It was the perfect venue to host our group...a large kitchen with two smaller kitchens, several chill out lounge areas, a large yoga space and a a lovely pool and sauna! Our guests loved it and so did we!

Many thanks!

Excellent extended family getaway over Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Dear Claire,

The complaint from the 11 grandchildren was "Do we Have to go home". Then "when can we come back to the big Big house". The kids had a wonderful time and the pool came top of the list above the Chichester Theatre visit and good walks both in the countryside and the beach (west side of the Arun ). I was thrilled by the sunrise highlighting the cathredal and castle from the patio and we were even spoilt to see the space station speed across the sky.It was a wonderful chance for us adults to catch up in a relaxed enviroment with the family looking after themselves; though we even had time for all family charades and card games. Yes the children got it right . It was over much too quickly,

Thanks and best wishes Andrew

(10 adults, 11 children over Christmas week)

Wonderful, Clean and Impressive property

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay at Brooklands Barn all very last minute. Claire and Simon were very helpful and informative. We had a tour of the property when we arrived and we were very impressed with everything we saw. Looks great on the photos but even better in real life. A great place for our work retreat and a beautiful location. Very spacious, clean and tidy. Really impressed and have already recommended to my friends and family that they should come and stay at Brooklands Barn. Thank you Claire and Simon!

We hope that you will come back for another work retreat in the future, maybe next time have more time to use the swimming pool and yoga room! All the best and Merry Christmas

Stunning property in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Really well presented and lovely and clean. Fantastic imaginative lay out for large families and groups. We had bad weather which didn't matter at all thanks to the indoor pool (great for kids. I taught two five year olds to swim!) Also plenty of expansive indoor space for games, eating etc. Lovely to have so many en-suite bedrooms. Wonderful views of castle and cathedral. Lovely garden for ball games and bird watching. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We can't wait to go back!
