Bit like summer


Spring seems to have slipped by and it’s beginning to feel a bit like summer !

We are well and truly into the B&B season with as ever guests visiting the area for all reasons. It’s good to see some of our guests using the train, then using hire bikes to discover our lovely corner of Hampshire and the South Downs. It’s been fun building & sharing biking & walking suggestions for our guests to venture out from The Lone Barn with. If anyone has any favourite routes from this centre section of the South Downs we would love to see them!

On a similar note we are having fun popping up in The Barn the next one a week earlier than usual! See link for pop up dates .

It’s so great to see lots of people of all ages and abilities biking out to make the most of great coffee, stunning cakes and good company.

When we say lots of people we would like to thank everybody for spreading the word and it’s fantastic to have the regulars amongst you . We would however, like to underline we are only a pop-up and do all of the baking in-house and with limited normal cafe facilities, with limited parking too we are trying to encourage walkers and cyclists to pop out!. Group size is a bit of an issue .We would like to cap this at 15 and with anybody arriving in a group of 10 or more to simply drop us a text to give us some heads up!

We hope to be able to offer a friendly and relaxed service in a slightly different environment giving everybody the attention they deserve and not firefighting large groups !

Again if anybody wants some different routes to get to us by mountain, road bike or walking then please drop us an email & we'll come up with some suggestions !

Say cheese! We had a stunning photography workshop in May. Sally the photographer did an excellent job, everybody ended up taking some professional looking shots in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Watch this space for possible future photographic workshops!

If you’re looking for an evening out with flowers and friends with some fizz then look no further! A must for August! Check out our workshop and retreat page! This should be a fun evening & lets hope the sun shines for us.

In the meantime we hope your bank holidays & half term was fun and you survived body and soul!

Trust your summer planning is all coming together but hopefully see some of you at The Lone Barn at some point over the next few months.

Happy summers Paul & Mel.
