Beautiful little cottage in stunning location! Communication with Lucy was excellent. We had a wonderful relaxing stay. Great walks from the doorsteps and tons of options for other walks and lovely pubs close by. Spotlessly clean too! Diana, April 2022

The Shepherd’s Barn is an idyllic hideaway, perfect for a short escape. It is beautifully designed and has all the comforts of home in a cosy small space. There are great local pubs, but our favourite day was a trip to Petworth, where the Hungry Guest Cafe served the perfect lunch and Dales Country Store is perhaps one of our favourite shops ever.
If you like horses (or even if, like me, you’re not an enthusiast) visit Cowdray and watch a Polo match (they are on most days). The thunder of the hooves of the galloping ponies is quite something to behold.

Beautiful and tranquil snuck away retreat perfect for couples Kate, Oxford April 2022
This was our second visit! Lucy and Nick were so welcoming and lovely – and when we requested more wood it arrived in a matter of minutes! Much appreciated. We really enjoyed staying here again. Perfect for a weekend away from it all – the Shepherds Barn is so cosy you’ll never want to leave!

WAS PERFECT IF YOU WANT A SECLUDED PEACEFUL FEW DAYS WITH JUST THE BIRDSONG . THE BARN WAS BEAUTIFUL ALL FINISHED TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD. ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE BED VERY ROMANTIC .
WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND. TOP TIP! TAKE YOUR WALKING SHOES LOADS OF LONG WALKS ON THE DOORSTEP OF THE BARN TO DISCOVER THE AREA .

Our stay at Shepherds Barn was just lovely…the finishing touches, such as the fire and the underfloor heating along with the welcome package and little extras really made it a special, cosy experience!
I would highly recommend to all! Chichester is lovely and only a short drive away…has plenty of choices of restaurants etc.We would also recommend Hayling Island, about a 30 min drive away but a lovely little seaside island with a long, clean pebble beach…perfect for a refreshing walk and even better when the sun is out!

We stayed in this beautiful Barn at the start of February 2022, right from the start the service provided was exceptional. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back in this beautiful place! Definitely recommend visiting The Royal Oak pub in Lavant! Amazing food!

I just wanted to write to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Shepherd’s barn. It was a perfect little retreat. We appreciated many details not only in the fabric of the building, like the wood, flint and gold strutts, but in the underfloor heating, choice lighting, skylights in the bed area, and nice bedlinen, towels and bathroom products. Not to mention the kind wine and flowers you left. All in a lovely setting.

Beautiful barn; lovely welcome treats; great pubs nearby; great communication before and during our stay – the perfect weekend escape from London!

Such an amazing place! Had a truly wonderful stay. Hosts really helpful and left lovely goodies for us which was a great extra touch.
We had two great walks at Bosham harbour and Kingley Vale. We were catered by Waitrose so were able to relax and enjoy the barn in the evenings. Wood burner was great but we rather overheated!

Shepherd’s barn is a pristine and cozy conversion , thoughtfully designed with luxury fittings throughout . Lucy greeted us with sparkling wine to start our short break in style . We walked straight out onto the Downs and Kingley Vale from where we had stunning views of the coastline . A bracing walk on the beach at West Wittering was perfect – we just missed having a dog with us ! We drove over to the beautiful Tinwood vineyard for a wine tasting of their latest vintages . We will return to Shepherd’s barn soon to have a rejuvenating weekend.

We had an amazing time and we didn’t want to leave. It was just what we needed and gave us the R&R we were looking for. What a great way to spend our first anniversary together. There is a pub about 1hr 1/2 away but be prepared for a tough but very enjoyable walk over the south downs.

This is an incredible property. The place is gorgeous. It is finished to a very high standard. You are slightly out of the way but that doesn’t detract from the property. Lucy keeps in contact with you throughout the booking process and nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed at some high end hotels but none have been finished to this standard. Good luck with the rest of the season and we will be back. No improvement needed.We had a great couple of nights, beautiful, well thought out accommodation with some really nice touches. Lovely peaceful and relaxing location great for the nearby Farbridge wedding venue & some fantastic walking!

Such an amazing place. The interior is finished to such a high standard and is completely spotless. Lovely cozy bedroom and beautiful bathroom. Great location not far from Chichester set in beautiful countryside. Lucy is a great host and everything is catered for. Highly recomended
Perfect place for a romantic getaway. Check in is flexible and it is close to a lot of great places to visit from Chichester for the cathedral to Bognor Regis for lunch on the sea to West Wittering for a bit of beach. The views are tremendous, though, so you may not want to leave.

Great communication from booking to leaving, lovely welcome hamper and generally great host even though we didn’t see her in person. Accommodation was newly renovated and cosy with excellent lighting, and well located for Chichester if you have a car. Would definitely come back. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely quiet self-catering accommodation. Quality throughout. All new & bespoke design features. Everything you need for a warm relaxing welcome. Very close to Goodwood with undercover parking. Teas/fresh coffee and condiments provided. Really enjoyed my stay and a great host. See you again soon.

Loved it!! Fabulously decorated and extremely charming I only wish i could’ve stayed longer!

We stayed here during Goodwood FoS weekend and it proved to be the perfect location. The barn is quite small but very private and well equipped, including great wifi. The modern bathroom worked well, especially the large shower, while the bed up in the loft space proved to be surprisingly luxurious. It should be noted, though, the stairs up to the loft are quite steep but perfectly manageable. We look forward to returning again over the coming months.
