“Delightful barn, fabulous location and dog friendly - perfect!”
Reviewed December 1, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The cart shed is one of three units converted from barn buildings on a working farm; the cart shed is fully accessible, spacious and very tastefully furnished. All of the units maximise energy efficiency and promote environmental sustainability. Booking direct with the owner was easy and very efficient and we were welcomed by a delightful home baked cake and a visit from the owners to say hello and check we were comfortable. There was everything we and the two dogs needed, including an enclosed garden but access to large areas of the beautiful countryside for great walks. The barn is so convenient for Chichester and surrounding harbour locations as well as Portsmouth, Isle of Wight etc.We were incredibly lucky with the weather which meant we could make the most of walks around this fabulous part of the country, knowing that we could return each day to a warm and cosy, comfortable barn. There are lovely pubs nearby but in the dark you have to drive everywhere; in the summer you could easily walk to some of them.

“Rural retreat close to Chichester”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The cartshed was very well set up and had the most comprehensive set of instructions for all equipment and activities I've seen! Environmental systems were in place and clearly explained.
The ambient temperature inside was very comfortable and easily changed by guests.
The disabled access room was very roomy, though we would have liked the option of having the beds made into one.
The manager Kelly, and other family members were very friendly and helpful.
The only drawback is that the adjacent accommodation's upstairs area was above our sleeping area and was noisy at night

“Our memorable stay at the Cart Shed”
Reviewed September 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at the Cart Shed during the last week of August and had a wonderful time.

We received a terrific and warm reception on arrival, and the accommodation did not disappoint. As Hong Kong residents we are used to cramped and noisy living conditions, so the Cart Shed was as refreshing as you can imagine, spacious, light and airy with all the mod-cons. Very relaxing and everything worked!

Local eateries are abundant, 2 local pubs with good food, and there are plenty more restaurants in Chichester.

The Cart Shed was an absolute delight to stay in, and in hindsight we both wished that we had extended our stay. We highly recommend it, and especially for those families with children, and/or those families who have members with disabilities or limited movement.

“Glorious Goodwood Accommodation”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A beautifully appointed cottage conversion in the wonderfully peaceful setting of an Up Marden farm.

Everything in the spacious property works and the welcome is warm - to include a bottle of wine and a homebaked cake.

Two fine country pubs within a refreshing 20 minute walk.

A perfect, relaxing antidote to the bustle of town life and we recommend warmly. Even the difficulty of attracting mobile phone signal coverage is a blessing in disguise...

“Simply superb.”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The buildings and facilities are world class, and the calm country setting is sublime. From the moment we stepped inside we were wrapped in a blanket of peace and warmth; the perfect place to unwind after a transatlantic flight. The owners are amazingly considerate, helpful, and kind, sharing their love of their idyllic home farm and way of life with their guests.
It was separately simply extraordinary to be able to look up at the old flint walls in the property and realise that some of the flints were likely to have been used in the large Roman villa that nearly 2000 years ago once stood around what is today the centre of a modern farm. With with two historic cities within very easy reach, and surrounded by villages offering several excellent gastro pubs and restaurants, Pitlands Farm Barns has it all! We shall return!

“Fantastic First Class Accommodation”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The Cart Shed is in absolutely pristine condition and very eco-friendly. The owners are also extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We have dogs and so the country walks which surround and go far beyond the property were perfect and the private, fenced garden was ideal. I do not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

“Luxury accommodation in an amazing location.”
Reviewed May 14, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed in the Cart Shed and it was very stylish luxury accommodation for 4 persons with disabled facilities and plenty of space. The hosts are charming and there were some home-made goodies for us on arrival. The sheets & towels are of good quality and the beds comfortable. The underfloor heating is lovely and the wood burning stove kept us very warm in such a large space. It is not a criticism but if renting the Cart Shed on its own, the lounge area of the attached rental is upstairs and is over both bedrooms and the kitchen and there is some noise transfer. This is not made clear on the web-site and may put some people off. Please enquire when booking would be my advice. Location is excellent for visiting lots of places.

Thank you for your kind comments.
We have now carpeted the living area of the Granary which is above the bedrooms and kitchen of the Cart Shed. This has eliminated the noise transfer caused by walking on a wooden floor.
