the house is modern and comfortable and has many details which show that the owners really put a lot of care in their house. a place you really want to live in, not something that is "good enough" for to rent it out. the land around it is beautiful english countryside. you step out the door and you are right there.
a piece of information might be useful: from the six beds only two are in a separate master bedroom. the other four (2 double beds if you want) are in duplexes that are soundwise not separated from the big livingroom. if you all go to bed at the same time it´s fine. if some want to hang around in the livingroom
but some others want to sleep that might be a problem unless you are in the master bedroom.
i want to point out again that everything in the house and the garden with the BBQ is top-notch.
I came across Tagents Barn completely by accident, having spent many days looking for somewhere to stay for me and my family.
I decided to take a chance as the pictures looked amazing, and as we were travelling all the way from noisy Jakarta in Indonesia, I wanted somewhere that would be relaxing and peaceful and the complete opposite of a busy city.
After travelling over 24 hours we arrived at the Barn and we're met by the owner Annabel, it was exactly as described, sat at the end of a one way track in the middle of the south downs, surrounded by fields and forest, with amazing views down the valley into the local village, with no noise apart from birds.
Annabel showed us around, and there was nothing that had not been thought of, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, BBQ, outside tables, chairs, loungers, extra blankets and duvets, washing powder, washing liquid, pegs, bread, milk, eggs, fully equipped kitchen, logs for the fire, absolutely everything!.
If you just went out and just bought food, you would never have to leave, as everything is there!.
There was myself and 4 family members, 3 bathrooms and a guest wc, so no waiting to use the bathroom.
We had a BBQ one evening and had another 10 guests, everyone agreed the place was fantastic.
Our biggest regret is that we were not there all the time, as we had lots of days trips out.
I would whole heartedly recommend Tagents Barn, it is modern, funky, traditional, beautiful, relaxing all rolled into one.
We as a family will definitely be returning in the future.
We stayed here at Christmas in 2012 and had such a wonderful time. This barn is just perfect. Stylish, very comfortable and luxurious. The lighting is great too , with lots of different mood lights. The Kitchen was beautiful and if I had to make a suggestion it would just be to provide a bigger fridge. Though, i don't suppose everyone has a giant turkey and leftovers to accommodate. The location is beautiful and very peaceful. A wonderful holiday in an exceptional barn.
