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!

A totally unique venue

  • 5 of 5

Fifteen months ago my husband and I viewed Brooklands Barn as a possible venue for my birthday celebration weekend away with my family, and I knew then it would be just perfect.

On Friday 17 June, seventeen of us across three generations arrived for the start of an amazing weekend. Everyone loved their luxurious bedrooms. The pool was well used and I was able to spend quality time in the sauna with my six grandchildren. Afterwards, the guys even watched the Euro football in the lovely lounge, while the girls enjoyed a cuppa in the dining area.

It was easy to prepare our meals in the well appointed kitchen. With the dining area designed conveniently adjacent, it was fun to all sit and eat together at the huge dining table. Having two extra kitchens proved a huge bonus as all four fridges were used to chill the celebration champagne and beers. We drank toasts outside on the fabulous patio. Having several smaller sitting areas around was good for personal chats.

Thank you Claire for all your help and for creating such a wonderful place for us all to celebrate and enjoy my 80th birthday!

Perfect stay in an amazing property

  • 5 of 5

As a large group of friends (20) getting together to celebrate we were looking for something impressive and Brooklands certainly didn't disappoint. It is an absolutely stunning property and worked perfectly for what we needed. It is rare to find something this size with no compromises, we could all fit around the table, we all sat together in the lounge and outside enjoying the incredible views. Both inside and outside spaces are done to perfection and the new sauna next to the swimming pool is a real treat! I also have to mention Claire (the owner) who is a lovely lady and couldn't have helped and supported us more with all our questions and requests in the run up to the weekend. I will definitely be coming back!

perfect place for our family get together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family get together to celebrate our Wedding. Plenty of space for us all to spend time together or split in to small groups. Pool a big hit. Views over Arundel Castle wonderful. Everywhere very clean, booking straightforward. Big bonus for us was having southdownseventcatering.co.uk to provide all meals

Booked this venue for Global Leadership Team Week

  • 5 of 5

We booked the whole venue to hold our annual Global Leadership Meeting - it works so well for us and makes a pleasant change from the restrictions of all staying in a hotel - it was more relaxed with plenty of space for breakout sessions. The setting is perfect and our overseas visitors loved the idea of staying in a converted barn - it is tranquil and picturesque, we cannot find anywhere else more perfect and have just booked for the 3rd year running

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.
