About the location

BARNS GREEN

Billingshurst 2 miles; Horsham 5 miles; Petworth 11 miles; Worthing 17 miles; Brighton 20 miles; Chichester 24 miles.

Barns Green is a small village in the heart of the Sussex countryside, perfectly located for visitors who are looking to explore both East and West Sussex. The pub offers an excellent lunch and evening menu, which includes game dishes sourced from the surrounding area, homemade desserts, local beers and ciders and the pub also hosts regular music and quiz evenings. It's also the meeting place for the local vintage and classic car enthusiasts. For those who enjoy more of an outdoor experience, then make for Sumner Ponds. With over 100 acres of woodland, lakes and pasture, here you can walk or cycle the well-signposted pathways through woods and meadows, making a visit here in Bluebell season is a must, or look out for marsh Marigolds and wild Orchids as you enjoy your stroll. Follow the footpaths through the working farm with its herd of 40 cattle. The fishing lakes are open from 7am each morning and caters for anglers of all abilities, so why not sit back, watch and wait for that all important catch of the day, from one of its four well-stocked lakes teeming with carp, roach, chub and pike to name but a few. Make a day of it and take a picnic, or if you’d rather, enjoy lunch and a glass or two at the cafe overlooking one of the lakes. Historic adventurers are spoilt for choice when staying in this part of Sussex; Petworth is just a short drive away, where you will find the stately home, Petworth House, now a National Trust property, with gardens by Capability Brown. To balance the scales, Petworth Cottage Museum in the High Street is a museum about the domestic life of poor estate workers around 1910. Brighton with its Royal Pavillion and The Lanes, or Arundel with its castle and cathedral are also less than an hour away. Barns Green has been a well-kept secret of quintessential village life, until now!
