Where we are: 

  The Highlights...

  • Beautiful converted barn that is the perfect romantic retreat for couples.
  • Self contained living space with fully kitted kitchen and luxurious bathroom complete with huge rainfall shower.
  • King size bed up in the eaves with memory foam mattress and wonderful views of the moonlit sky.
  • Perfectly located to explore the South Downs and also near to Chichester as well as Goodwood Motor Circuit and Racecourse.
  • Curl up by the fire in the living room and watch TV or enjoy a good book with a glass of wine.
  • WiFi available and nearby pubs and restaurants offer fabulous food as well as take away.

  You should know...

  • The stairs to the maisonette bedroom are rather steep.
  • There is a gorgeous king sized bed, but it does have restricted height (similar to a tent!)
  • There are animals living on the premises, but this just adds to the lovely rural charm of the place.

  The Detail...

What once played host to animals and farm equipment, is now the perfect bolthole for couples looking to escape to the country. This beautifully charming barn was once a working farm building and now, thanks to the skilled craftsmanship of its renovators, it is a cutting edge, modern living space. Mere moments from Goodwood and just over an hours drive from London, Shepherds Barn is perfectly located for anyone looking to enjoy the sweeping countryside of the South Downs.

This quaint hideaway has everything you need for a couples break. Breath fresh air as you enjoy the outdoor dining space in spring and summer, and stand in the private garden surrounded by trees and fields. Or visit the property in the colder months and snuggle up in the cosy interior, made all the more toasty thanks to underfloor heating and a wood burner. The cute mezzanine bedroom is nestled up in the eaves and is just a short climb up some pretty wooden stairs. Get comfy in the king size bed complete with memory foam mattress and stare up at the moon and stars through one of two skylights. The barn also has a luxurious bathroom complete with a huge rainfall shower and underfloor heating.

Delve into your fabulous hamper on arrival and enjoy local produce and other goodies as well as a nice bottle of bubbly. And if you dont fancy heading out for dinner in one of the nearby local pubs or delightful restaurants, then youll be pleased to know that the adorable kitchen is fully kitted out with all of the necessary equipment. Or why not order a takeaway?

The self contained barn, complete with parking space and garage, is situated inside the South Downs National Park. This makes it a perfect destination for lovers of the great outdoors, who can make the most of many walking and cycling routes in the area. Lovers of fast cars can head on over to the nearby Goodwood Motor Circuit and lovers of fast horses (though admittedly slightly less fast than the cars) can venture over to Goodwood Racecourse for a flutter or two.
