Orchard Barn is luxurious self catering accommodation, situated just off the South Downs in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Orchard Barn is just a few miles from the historic city of Chichester and many attractions including the Goodwood Estate with its Horse Racing, Festival of Speed and the Revival, the historic Dock yard at Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight to name a few. Orchard Barn is a beautiful converted Sussex flint barn with unique views of the downs and the surrounding area. There are many walks right on your doorstep and some challenging cycle rides for the more adventurous. Outside the barn are two patios with garden tables and chairs and a gas BBQ. There is under-floor heating throughout the ground floor of the barn. The hot water is heated by solar panels and we have also installed a rainwater harvester which is used to flush the toilets. The garden is fenced so it is safe for small children and dogs to roam.

Beautiful top quality holiday property
A wonderful weekend in this stunning barn conversion. The owners have thought of everything and it is a perfect place for a family get together. So many thoughtful extras - feels like home from home. There's lots of space, beautiful furnishings, quality beds and it's spotlessly clean. Such a gorgeous location - feels like the middle of nowhere but really accessible. We loved it and highly recommend it.
Thank you so much for such a lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you all back soon.
The "Barn" and its facilities are really first class. Wonderfully spacious and very well furnished. The outdoor areas were great for kids, dogs and relaxing adults. The surrounding area is iconic Sussex countryside of rolling fields and woodland, and not too far from many good visits eg Arundel, the Witterings, Bosham etc, plus good local pubs
Sally was a lovely host, and we appreciated the wine, sponge cake and flowers.
I think guests do need to be aware that the location is in deep countryside with no immediate shops, etc, and no mobile connection, though there is a landline and wifi. Certainly away from it all!
Overall though, a great week and we certainly recommend Orchard Barn
Thank you for your lovely review, I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful property in a peaceful location
The whole family came for a holiday. The barn was the perfect house as we all had our own space. The outside space is really good and we enjoyed eating and drinking at both areas, using the excellent sized bbq. The kitchen was really well equipped and we didn’t need to provide anything. The only fly in the ointment was one of the showers went from warm to cold very quickly due to boiler problems. Otherwise a perfect stay
Fantastic stay in beautiful barn.
We stayed in the barn for 3 nights to celebrate a 60th birthday. The barn is very big and spacious, really nice and light with big floor to ceiling windows. All the 4 bedrooms were great, with en suites and comfy beds. The big open fire is really inviting with comfy couches and there is a dining room table and big kitchen table to eat around. We had everything we needed and Sally was an amazing host. Beautiful location too, really nice for walks and local pubs. Would definitely go back and could have easily stayed for a whole week.
Very spacious, comfortable & equipped property in a quiet country setting.
The barn has all the charm of a rural home but with modern amenities. The rooms are very spacious and the inventory of equipment, crockery , glasses etc is comprehensive. Within 45 to 60 minutes walk down a country lane can be found 2 charming pubs serving good food. Host Sally was very friendly with cake & welcome pack supplied.We enjoyed a family get together over a long weekend.
So glad you enjoyed your weekend and it stayed dry for you to walk to the pubs. We look forward to welcoming you back some time.
Great stay at Orchard Barn
Lovely weekend break in Up Marden, the barn was perfect for our family group of 4 adults, plenty of space for us all inside and out. Having 4 bathrooms took away a load of hassle, though as some other reviews have said, the upstairs bedrooms (bath only) could benefit with having a shower tap/attachment. Whole place very clean and tidy, no trace of any previous furry guests.
The log fire was lovely, good selection of puzzles and games to keep us entertained as well as netflix TV which was very handy for a lazy afternoon. Lovely rural location, but close to the Witterings beaches as well as Chichester town. Plenty to keep us occupied for the long weekend. We didn't eat out locally in the end, but lots of lovely looking pubs nearby all serving food.
Sally was a great hostess, popped in on our arrival day to check we had everything we needed - provided one of the best Victoria Sponges we've ever had! Plus a bottle of wine and fresh milk was a lovely touch.
Highly recommend staying here, we will be back!
Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you again.
