In our efforts to protect our environment, air source heat pumps provide underfloor heating throughout the barns, with individual room thermostats for you to control.

The South East England region

The South of England has lots to offer visitors, with the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty which stretches 100 miles from Winchester to Beachy Head in East Sussex. Visitors can walk or cycle along the South Downs Way, a national trail that follows old routes along chalk enscarpment and ridges of the Downs, explore the historic towns and charming villages, or enjoy the stunning coastline and beaches.


Pitlands Barns is situated on a working farm between the villages of Walderton and Up Marden in the heart of the South Downs National Park. From the top of the farm on a clear day, there are stunning views of Chichester harbour and the Isle of Wight. Walk or cycle on the many footpaths and bridleways through ancient woodlands and beautiful countryside in the surrounding area. These footpaths link to the Southdowns Way, a 100 mile footpath stretching from Winchester to Eastbourne. The nearest pub is two miles by road, but only a 10 minute walk through the woods. The nearest village shop is 5 km away.

The historic city of Chichester is 8 miles away with its Cathedral, The Festival Theatre, Planetarium and Galleries.

Portsmouth lies 15 miles away with its Historic Dockyard and shopping, restaurants and entertainment at Gunwarf Quays. There are regular crossings to the Isle of Wight for day trips.

Goodwood Estate is 8 miles away with its horse racing, Festival of Speed and The Revival. Polo at Cowdray and horse racing at Fontwell are within easy reach too.

There are National Trust properties at Stansted House and Uppark House nearby, and Fishbourne Roman Palace is just 5 miles away. Pitlands Barns is on the site of a Roman Villa built in the same era, some of which was excavated in 1967, but has since been covered over. Some coins and pottery are on display in the barns.

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.
