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!

Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

13 of us stayed at Brooklands Barn for 2 nights. We had more than enough space for everyone. Everything was pristine, the beds were super comfortable and everyone enjoyed having their own little area of the house. We loved the outdoor space, the front patio area is great for gathering and soaking up the sun. The pool was lovely and clean and again was plenty big enough for us all. Claire was a great host, we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Cannot recommend enough!

Special birthday family get together.

  • 5 of 5

Great location very close to Arundel with it's facilities. Beautifully presented, large property which suited our large family get together really well. The indoor pool and outdoor sauna were better than we had hoped, the pool was large and well heated, the children loved it. The sauna although outside was a few short steps from the main house. Great customer service The owner was there at the time promised and gave us a comprehensive tour of the large property. Although February there's lots to do in the area and the children loved the dance studio.

Would highly recommend this property for large groups as there's loads of seating areas for a quite 5 minutes one with terrific views over the river Arun valley. All the bedrooms were well presented and comfortable. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Great, even in November

  • 5 of 5

Excellent choice for a family 70th birthday party. 14 adults (aged 30 to 70) and 9 children ( 6 months to c10) The bedrooms are spread out so that each family group had plenty of space. The children loved the pool and the playroom. It was November so using the outside sunbeds was replaced by sitting around the wood fire. We used a local catering company to cater for us on the Saturday evening which was a great success. Clare/Claire was very accommodating allowing us extra time to gather up all the children on our departure.

Highly recommended.
