Good Hotel Guide Review
A ‘stunningly restored’ 17th-century threshing barn in the South Downs national park is the heart of Moya and Richard Connell’s rural B&B and working organic farm. The barn is dramatic: lofty, open-plan, with huge oak beams, modern artwork, vintage leather seating and rough-hewn wooden pieces, a contemporary wood-burner. A striking staircase curls up to a small glass-fronted library and honesty bar. In a ring of converted outbuildings, ‘spacious, comfortable’ bedrooms, some with exposed timbers, have all the usual amenities, plus a few 21st-century necessities (wine glasses, a corkscrew, a yoga mat). The farm’s produce is showcased in the ‘superb’ breakfast’s sausages, eggs and home-made jam.
