  • "Debby made us very welcome on our arrival and showed us around the property."

    The barn is a lovely little property and is situated in a very peaceful situation in woods, we found this very handy as we could open the gate in the morning and take our dog straight into the woods. Although quiet and peaceful, a 3 minute drive down the lane takes you straight onto the A27 which is great as you can easily access any areas you wish to visit. The barn itself was very comfortable and well appointed with the added bonus of a nice conservatory, and garden with patio, table and chairs Good pub down the road,and a great village shop which served breakfast. Had a very enjoyable weeks break so 5***** to Debby

    Thank you so much Brian , am so please you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the local pub in Eartham and village shop & Cafe. I hope you will all return in the future. Many thanks Debs Property Owner

  • "This is a great cottage with wonderful features."

    It is spacious, well equipped and offers a flexible choice of places to eat from the lounge, sun lounge and the patio. The upstairs bedroom has a sloped roof with a spacious and super comfortable bed. The shower which is downstairs provides hot water and is highly effective. The garden is great for four legged friends and was much enjoyed by our pooch and us. We would recommend it to others for its positioning to visit other places, gardens and eateries, too. The host is chatty, informative and kind.

    Sue thank you for your lovely comments, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay in The Stables Barn .I look forward to seeing you all in the future Many Thanks Debs Property Owner

  • "Lovely place."

    Great location. Woodland on the door step. Coast 20 mins drive. Fontwell races across the road and Goodwood races 15 min drive. Some lovely touches make it feel a home from home. Warm welcome from host Debbie on arrival. Great for the dog, big enclosed garden. Everything we wanted for a pleasant stay.

About the location


  • Arundel 5 miles
  • Goodwood 5 miles
  • Chichester 6 miles
  • Petworth 11 miles
  • Worthing 14 miles

Fontwell is a small hamlet in the heart of the Sussex countryside, made famous by Fontwell Park Racecourse, where in October 1949 Queen Elizabeth II had her first win as the owner of Monaveen. The racecourse is still a popular venue with 23 meetings each year, including the customary Boxing Day race day. Fontwell itself is made up of several scattered cottages and equestrian centres, nestled within Slindon Woods on the edge of the South Downs National Park. Arundel is 5 miles to the east, here visitors are able to tread cobbled streets and explore this pretty market town with its castle and cathedral both set high up on the hills overlooking the River Arun. Arundel also offers quaint shops, art galleries and a number of pubs and restaurants, as well as a monthly farmers’ market, here you can buy local cheeses and breads, along with fruits and cakes, so why not fill your picnic basket and head for the South Downs, or to the coast for a day on the beach. You cannot come to this part of Sussex without visiting Goodwood. With horse racing, motor racing and Goodwood House, a 17th century stately house home to the Duke of Richmond (open to the public from March to October) everyone will have a day to remember. With so much to see and do you will want to return to this Sussex hamlet time and again.
