This amazing eco project, situated literally alongside the Pilgrims Way, has launched into its new season, the first visitors being a group of scouts walking and orienteering.
The simple accommodation, set in a 200 year old barn, is open from Spring until the end of October subject to advance booking, and pilgrims can be assured of a warm welcome whether travelling individually or as part of a group. The Barn is 2 miles from Wanborough railway station and 5 miles from Guildford.
The communal sleeping platforms come with privacy partitions to divide the space into 3 separate areas, and you can either bring your own sleeping bag or hire one; there is a shower room and toilets. Amenities include a self-catering kitchen, a secure bike shed and a picnic area.
Each year the small charity running the Barn endeavour to embark on new ways to enhance the project – in 2017 the planting of a hedge.
