This spacious loft apartment sits upstairs in a converted barn, above the indoor swimming pool. It has a large open plan lounge/diner/kitchen and 3 bedrooms. It's fully self contained.

It has an interconnecting door at the bottom of the stairs taking you into the swimming pool.

It sits on 7 acres of land with the main house. There's an acre of beautiful mature garden with a stunning pond, large lawns, and a field. It has stunning views of the south downs.

The space

Its a clean, airy and bright, loft appartment. It has characterful sloping ceilings. It's set inside Darp Farm, next door to the main house which is occupied by the owners. You're welcome to explore the grounds and the local area.

We have a kids climbing frame with swings, slides and a see-saw.

Guest access

All of the grounds, around 7 acres in total. This is a large garden, lawns, pond, and a field. We have a kids play fort with swings and slides. You can explore the whole area. You can use the field for a Barbeque if you wish.

Interaction with guests

You are in a completely private apartment. We are mostly around in the main house during your stay. We'll be friendly, but we'll leave you in total privacy if you wish - up to you. It's all self service, so many guests don't even see us!

Other things to note

Because it's a loft apartment, you'll need to go up stairs to get to it. It would not suit a disabled person, nor an older person who struggles with stairs.

You need to keep a close eye on children as there are several notable dangers. The stairs, the swimming pool and the pond in the garden are all potential hazards, do not leave children unattended.

We really enjoyed our stay in Darp farm. The swimming pool was awesome and the flat was clean. Carl (owner) was very helpful.

A clean, spacious and quiet apartment. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night (perfect location for a nearby wedding) and didn't have the chance to use the pool, but it looked great!

The kids and us really enjoyed the place. Perfect for a family getaway. Kids play area, nice open spaces for them to run, colourful fish near the pond and of course the heated pool. The apartment is modern and has enough space. Well presented by Carl.
