“A fantastic place for a multi-generation family weekend away.”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved this peaceful, rural retreat for our extended family of 12. The accommodation was comfortable and spacious. It worked well for all three generations - from elderly grandparents who needed level access to the younger grand children.
We loved the garden to sit out, and barbecue, and play games. The younger children loved exploring the woods above the farm and helping feed the chickens. The location in in gorgeous countryside.
Kelly and her family were excellent hosts and made us feel at home and welcome.
We'd definitely recommend Pitlands Barns.

Liked best: Comfortable, spacious and peaceful.
Liked least: We felt the lighting in the kitchen area in the Granary could have been improved a little - a minor niggle.

“Ideal 80th birthday family celebration”

If if you have need for accomodation for a large group which has big enough space for all to socialise , while providing privacy at other times then this is perfect. The huge open space upstairs in The Granary is fantastic. Lovely area to relax with 4 large sofa's, a huge dining table, and an open plan kitchen that means those doing the cooking do not feel cut off from everyone else. This was the hub of our weekend, and we never needed to play the many board games or watch DVD's that were available. Kelly was very friendly, and just left us to get on with it, once we were settled in.

“It Was Just Perfect”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

When planning a surprise Birthday celebration for my husband I found it hard to find the right combination of great location / stylish accommodation / & up to 7 en suites. Then I happened upon Pitlands in Up Marden. Kelly, her husband and father -in -law could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble. When I checked on arrival day to see if my order of wine had arrived, Kelly immediately asked, typical of her wonderful helpfulness, if she could put it in refrigerators for me.

It was a great success all round. With guests arriving from all over the world & the UK I had to make sure it was somewhere special and all agreed it was just superb. Thank you Pitlands Team.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed April 28, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We took over all 3 barns for a hen do and had the most fantastic time. Beautiful surroundings, a stunning communal space to party in, lovely gardens to play silly games in, plenty of space for people to get some time out if they wanted it. Kelly could not have been more friendly and hospitable and I know that if we had needed anything at all she would have done her best to help. There was plenty of useful information on where to go and what to do and while we didn't have time to really explore I hope to be back again soon so that we can.
I couldn't recommend the barns highly enough - they are beautiful, well equipped, comfortable and in exceptional surroundings. Whilst we were there on a hen do this time, i am already thinking about when we might be able to arrange a family holiday back. It really is perfect, whatever the occasion.

“Beautiful, relaxing, tranquil long weekend in outstanding accommodation.”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Thank you very much for a lovely welcome and providing incredible accommodation. We had a relaxing weekend and loved the location, so quiet yet a great local pub a short walk through the woods and fields. Facilities are great, everything you would need for self catering accommodation and more, the information available is brilliant for what you may need and where to get it, like food. My 8 year old loved helping feed the chickens one morning and we loved actually spotting the wild deer we'd seen on your website one evening. You are a very hospitable family who genuinely made us feel happy to ask anything. Thank you very much.......we will be coming back!

Another fabulous weekend at the Barns. Thank you to the Huxham's for such a great, friendly place for our family and friends to stay in. We have had fun, laughter and sunshine in wonderful surroundings. Looking forward to another break next year. Thanks again.

“Superb!”
Reviewed March 20, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A delight, from the warm welcome, complete with home made cake and a bottle of wine, to the beautifully appointed sitting room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. A big basket of logs stood ready next to the wood burner, complete with kindling and fire lighters, with milk in the fridge and teabags at the ready, we were soon lounging in front of a blazing fire admiring the view of the South Downs. We will return in the summer to enjoy dining on the patio, taking more long walks in the woods and dropping into the two nearby pubs for tasty meals. This time we stayed in the Cart Shed as there were only two of us, for next time we plan a family gathering - occupying all three barns. Can't wait! See you then Kelly and Philip! And thank you for a wonderful stay.
