The Shepherds Barn is a beautifully formed space to lay your weary head and enjoy the countryside. It has been transformed from an old barn into a beautiful, cleverly designed space by www.metalandbutter.com.

Enter a sweeping drive of a 17th Century brick and flint farmhouse and peaking out from the side you will see the Shepherds Barn. Enter through the bi-folding doors to make the most of the stunning view to up to the mighty Kingley Vale.

You will be welcomed with something tempting to help you relax into the beautiful surroundings. If there’s a nip in the air, you can light the cosy woodburner and settle into the night. If there’s a remarkable sunset, sit outside on the cleverly created wooden seats or the edge of the wood and admire the view listening out for owls, woodpeckers and deer.

There’s a fully equipped kitchen or order a delicious takeaway, or it’s a mile or so to the fantastic White Horse at Chilgrove or Royal Oak at East Lavant (a Tatler favourite) for a delicious lunch or supper.

There’s a luxurious bathroom with a huge rainfall shower with underfloor heating and soft, fluffy white company towels. Up the staircase you’ll find a King Sized bed and memory foam mattress up in the eaves and can even lie looking out of the 2 skylights at the Moon and the Stars. This part of West Sussex has an incredible night sky due to the low light pollution in the area.

This is a fully self contained barn with a parking space (or garage if required) and a beautiful, private garden with views over the South Downs and a beautiful woodland. Please be aware the King Size Bed is in the Eaves of the property and you won’t be able to stand up! It is about the same height as a tent as a guide.
