The hosts were lovely. The Barn was really well appointed and equipped. Everything worked a treat. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was well fitted and the Kitchen/Sitting area was a good size and immaculately clean. The decorated Christmas Tree was a delightful added touch. All in all, we had a lovely stay and would recommend this Converted Barn to anyone.
Beautifully converted barn

Very special Barn Conversion near Chichester
We stayed at this property last weekend in difficult circumstances as my elderly mother had just been taken ill and was in hospital in Chichester - we had oringinally planned to take her with us for a mini-break as it was clearly ideal for taking an older guest as it is all on one level.
It is the most lovely place, in a stunning rural setting - we watched an incredible harvest moon rise over the fields opposite on the first night that we were there. It has been beautifully converted and is far classier than the pictures online can portray. Everything is done to a very high standard and the bathroom with its underfloor heating was really wonderful. Amazing beds.
I would have loved to have used the woodburning stove as I imagine it would make the place very cosy indeed - it was all ready with logs but we did not have time due to hosptial visiting. I would highly recommend this lovely barn conversion and Stuart and Sally - the owners - were very welcoming and helpful.
Thank you for your review - we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We hope your mother is better and look forward to perhaps seeing you again for another visit

Beautiful Converted barn
Wonderful cottage. Owners very helpful and friendly. There was a Christmas tree, with mince pies and chocolate Santas for the kids. A lovely surprise.
Beds and sofas very comfy, excellent kitchen. Log burner keeps the chill away.
Thank you! Please come again
Great family holiday accommodation
We had a wonderful stay at the barn the accommodation is like a home from home - with a toddler who loved to run around in all the space. The facilities are great with a dishwasher/washing machine and lots of utensils for cooking. You need a car to get around as the farm is based in a rural area - lovely for walks but it's such a great base for exploring the area we can't wait to go back again. West wittering beach is a short drive away and is a golden sandy beach for a cost of £4 to park all day.
Thank you for coming to stay, we are glad that you enjoyed it - please come again soon!
