“Peace and tranquility in five star accommodation”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Our second stay in this fabulous converted barn and we were so happy to be back! The owners have thought of every last detail to ensure maximum comfort and total relaxation. High quality bed linens and towels and extremely well equipped kitchen all in the most idyllic surroundings imaginable. You can go for long walks straight from the Barn and Chichester is only a 15 minute drive. Rob and Rachel went out of their way to make us feel incredibly welcome and were able to give us lots of advice on attractions in the area. I would definitely recommend staying here.

“Five Star cottage in beautiful, peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

My family and I enjoyed an incredibly relaxing few days staying at Rubens Barn. The cottage is extremely well equipped with high quality bedding and wonderfully soft towels. The kitchen had everything we needed and the owners had gone beyond our expectations to make sure we had everything we could possibly want for a delicious breakfast. The cottage was perfectly situated in the midst of the beautiful, peaceful countryside but very close to Chichester. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be coming back.

“Beautiful Little Cottage”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have recently returned from a short stay at Ruben's Barn. The Barn is perfectly situated for exploring the area and the owners, Rachel & Rob, provided some excellent recommendations for beach, museums and restaurants which were very well received. The cottage is beautifully appointed and very well looked after. The little extras (toiletries and hamper) were a bonus too. Highly recommended!

“Top of the charts for next year”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This being our first time going off the hotel trail in the South/South West of the UK on our travels we were excited to see what Rubens Barn had to offer.

The property didn't disappoint. It was beautifully finished off to a high standard and had all the modern facilities you would want in a rental/hotel room. The real charming aspect was the bath in the converted attic space, you could sit and read while soaking in the bath and hear the world go by, and with the week that was in it the odd sportscar.

We stayed in Rubens Barn as our base for the festival of speed and were delighted at how close it was to the Goodwood Estate. We hope to stay again soon for next years Revival Festival and Festival of Speed.

A must stay for anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the City and looking to recharge their batteries.

This was one of the best places I had ever stayed as it was isolated, quite, romantic an well equipped for my short stay an probably be just as good for longer stays.
I met the owners of the barn who where very hospitable and informative about activities an places to go with information provided in the barn an the condiments were adequate (but ran out of tea bags ☺️) an the white robes weren't available but apart from that I had an excellent time an highly recommend this barn if anyone is looking for quite getaway.
