Arrive for Jan’s homemade cake and feel quite at home. Her relaxed, rustic house is full of natural tones, quirky pieces, candles and twinkling wood fires. Bedrooms brim with beamy character; there are four in the main barn, which has the odd steep stair and low bit. Breakfast is in the stunning living area – light streams in through big windows while you tuck into home-baked banana muffins, granola, berries, a full cooked spread. If you fancy independence, Cartshed is self-catering with doors opening onto a garden area with BBQ firepit. You’re in the heart of South Downs National Park; thriving Petersfield and heaps of good pubs are nearby.
