We have just returned for the most fabulous weekend away at Blue Door Barns. Emma and Bryony made us feel so welcome and everything from the setting, to the rooms, decor and breakfast was amazing. They have obviously put a lot of thought into the design and have a great eye for all the little extra touches.
We finished off our weekend with treatments to make it that little bit more special - highly recommended!
We will definitely be returning.
This is a fantastic quiet, cosy and comfortable hideaway where style and friendly service are plentiful. The barns are full of character and the beds and pillows are comfortable. The ambiance is amazing and the hosts go the extra mile to ensure your stay is perfect. Not to mention the food, which is locally sourced and lovingly prepared. Can’t wait to go again and I will definitely book a treatment next time.
We spent two nights at Blue Door Barns to celebrate our anniversary. All different from each other, our little barn, The Sailor's Hut, was adorable. Small but filled with unique touches, it was the perfect getaway from our busy lives in London.
Breakfast, chosen in advance and cooked by Emma was tasty and leisurely, eaten in the beautiful and original main house. Our hosts were great at communicating prior to our stay and at helping us with tips on what to do when we were there.
The massages in the tiny shack are a very appreciated plus if you want an extra relaxing stay. Would love to come back in the Summer to enjoy the great outside spaces.
Exceeded all expectations- we booked for a hen party for 9 girls and couldnt be more pleased that we did.
The rooms were so comfortable with lots of extra touches like little REN beauty products, and stunning decor- all so thoughtfully finished.
Our ocado order arrived early so they kindly unpacked it all for us.
They were the best hosts- so helpful and kind.
We made dinner there on the friday, and then they helped organise flower arranging for the saturday morning which was just lovely.
Saturday night they had us into their house for a 3 course dinner which was delicious- their house was wonderful and then we had drinks by the fire back near our barns.
I will most certainly be back and couldnt reccomend this place enough.
Such easy access from London also!
Thank you Emma and Bryony!!
For the past five nights our wedding party had the privilege of staying as guests of Bryony and Emma at Blue Door Barns. What can I say, quite simply it was amazing. The lodges are stunningly beautiful, the decor is expertly done by Emma and the setting on The South Downs is fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for this wonderful couple and the wedding organisation and execution made it a dream day for all my family and friends. I can not recommend a stay here strong enough, whether you are after a relaxing break or a more arduous spot of walking on the Downs, look no further. You will not be dissapointed with Blue Door Barns, it really is just perfection. Thanks ladies, you are both superb!!! x
So just returned from my second stay at Blue Door Barns. Both times were very different - both amazing! The first time, my husbamd and I had a romantic weekend in The Nook abd Bryony and Emma could not have been more helpful with local information and places to visit etc. The setting, barn, breakfast in “the big house” was wonderful and we relaxed completly.
The second time, I hired all the accommodation for my birthday celebrations with 12 friends and from start to finish everything was perfect and Bryony and Emma were on hand before and during our stay to make
Sure it all went well.All the barns are so cosy and well-equipped. The beds and bed linen are SO comfy and the decor is quirky and tasteful.
On this visit, we had dinner in the big house and it was lovely - beautiful room with candles and a roaring fire. Our drinks were topped up and the food was delicious.
After dinner, Emma lit the fire round at the barns and we carried on the party there!
Breakfast was beautiful the next day and we went for a bracing walk in the next village.
I cannot fault Blue Door Barns and am already planning a summer visit!
Blue Door Barns couldn’t have delivered more - I spent a few days here on a quick break before heading back to work for a new year. Bryony and Emma were fantastic hosts from start to finish - delicious breakfasts in a beautiful setting, warm conversation and full of excellent recommendations. Two horse rides and two treatments were no trouble at all for the hosts to organise (Stephanie Slade’s facials are definitely worth calling out, quite special), and they all round made it so easy for me to enjoy the few days. I return to the big smoke totally energised, with a clear head and a car full of Lewes flea-market finds, and plotting for the next trip. Can’t wait, and thank you so much.
