The Stables, The Granary and The Cart Shed (suitable for those with limited mobility) are all furnished to the highest standards and are situated on a working farm in the heart of the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Pitlands Barn was originally built in 1844 and up until recently was used as a grain store and dryer. Now redundant as a farm building, and wanting to protect and enhancing the traditional characteristics of this old Sussex flint barn, we have created three very low carbon and sustainable self-catering holiday cottages. They all have air source heat pumps for heating, wood burning stoves using coppiced wood from the farm, under floor heating, solar panels for hot water and rainwater harvesting for the washing machine and for flushing loos
The barns are the perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday or short break with family and friends. There are wonderful walks straight from the barns, through beautiful countryside teeming with wildlife such as deer, pheasants, kestrels and red kites. In the evening look out for badgers, tawny owls and pipistrelle bats. The woods above the farm are a picture in May and June with bluebells and wild orchids. From the top of the farm on a clear day, there are stunning views of Chichester harbour and the Isle of Wight. A footpath runs alongside the garden leading directly to a pub in the village of Stoughton,10 minutes walk through scenic woodlands. Carry on a little further from here along a footpath to reach Kingly Vale nature reserve, the oldest yew forest in existence.
