Excellent accommodation within the National Park. We stayed one very peaceful night and will certainly be back.

“Fantastic accommodation and location”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

9 Friends, 3 nights, lots of walking, staying at Pitland Barns in The Granary (3 bedrooms) and The Cart Shed (2 bedrooms). There's also The Stables, which has 2 bedrooms. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms! A warm welcome from Philip and Jenny on arrival, plus home made cake and 2 bottles of wine. The Barns are very spacious and furnished to a high standard. Lots of useful information about walks, pubs, restaurants and amenities, etc. The walks were fabulous in the South Downs and in Chichester. Pub within walking distance of Barns - food and staff were great. We loved this accommodation. It's a beautiful conversion and it had everything we needed. Do view the website. Would love to go again.

“The perfect spot for comfort, hospitality and creativity!”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

having searched the internet for a venue suitable for a large group for a retreat I came across Pitlands Barn. Jenny was the most hospitable and helpful host - even before we arrived! We could not have asked for more, the accomodation is spotlessly clean, well equipped and so comfortable. We enjoyed our retreat immensely, starting off each day with a walk through the adjacent countryside, returning to our splendid home from home. Thank you Jenny and Philip for you kindness! The homemade lemon drizzle, bottles of wine, fresh flowers were a perfect touch!

“A home away from home”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This is an amazing place. A little bit hard to find, but once you are there, you don't want to leave anymore. There was absolutely nothing missing in the two places we rented, called the Stables and the Granary. The Granary is absolutely superb and we had a great time ( 8 adults and 2 children) There were fresh flowers, a home baked sponge cake and some wine waiting for us. If the weather is nice, it's absolutely gorgeous to stay there with children, as there is enough room for them to play outside. I think, that I can speak for the whole family: We loved our week at Pitlands Barns and hope to come back some day.

“Wow what an excellent place!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We have just got back from a long weekend break at Pitlands Barns and couldn't have found a more wonderful place to stay. Set in the middle of nowehere in beautiful surroundings, the accomodation was magnificent and met all of our needs. The fenced garden area was perfect for letting our 1 year old loose and the two older children were able to explore a little further afield. It was uick and easy to get to Chichester from Pitlands Barns and visit either Hayling Island beach or The Witterings Beach.
