Bring your partner!  Even if he or she doesn’t practice yoga, this is the perfect venue for couples.  All the bedrooms have zip and link beds, which can be split to provide two generous single beds, or left joined together to create a kingsize bed.  Whilst you enjoy the yoga, non-practicing partners can either choose to chill out at Brooklands barn itself, or can explore the picturesque countryside and sights of West Sussex.

This luxurious retreat centre is stunning and is a perfect environment to get away from the stresses of daily living.  The combination of this sheer luxury with excellent yoga sessions will result in the perfect weekend away.     All the rooms at Brooklands Barn are spacious and have been newly refurbished. There are 8 bedrooms which have en suite bathrooms, and a further 2 bedrooms which share a family sized bathroom.  In each wing of the converted barn there is a spacious living room where clients can further relax in comfortable armchairs and sofas.  The open spaces in each wing are very generous, so if you want to find a quiet area all to yourself you will not be disappointed.

  • A total of 4 generous yoga sessions, so we can really unwind and deepen our practice.

Just 1.5 hours from London by train, and 1 hour from Southampton, we chose this venue because of its first class facilities, and the beautiful nurturing atmosphere, far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The centre is a 5 star 19th century converted barn, within walking distance of the historic centre of Arundel, and the River Arun, and has breathtaking views across the Sussex downs.

Arundel Castle


Arundel is a picture postcard, almost fairytale type of town, dominated by its magnificent castle.

The hilly and compact town centre is packed with lovely Georgian and Victorian houses and the High Street and Eagle Street are full of unusual independent shops.

Arundel also has a vibrant artistic side, with many artists and sculptors living or working in the town.

Bignor Roman VillaBignor – Roman Villa

Bignor is a lovely village in one of the quietest parts of West Sussex. Bignor is most famous for the Roman Villa, which lies on the slopes outside the village.

These same slopes have a slightly Mediterranean feel to them too, because of the vineyard planted in neat rows, facing south towards the sun.

Fishbourne Roman PalaceFishbourne – Roman Palace

The Roman Palace at Fishbourne is a First-century home and archaeological site and with the largest collection of early Roman mosaic floors in Britain.  The garden has been carefully replanted to its original plan which features box hedging and staked espalier fruit trees.

There is also a Museum which tells the history of the site and displays many artefacts and the Collections Discovery Centre which houses the sensitive store, research room and conservation laboratory.

West WitteringBeaches

West Sussex has some of the best beaches on the south coast of England.  In the west of the county, there’s a huge expanse of sandy beach that stretches for miles from East Head to Selsey.

Further east the beaches of Sussex run (almost interrupted) from Bognor Beach to Brighton with only the mouth of the Arun and the harbour at Shoreham intervening.

walkingThe South Downs Way

The South Downs Way is a magnificent 100 mile National Trail.

The South Downs Way covers 48 spectacular miles in West Sussex, making it one of the most rewarding walks in the south of England.

If you enjoy the countryside, this is a walk not to miss out.


Monarch's WayThe Monarch’s Way

The Monarch’s Way is one of the great long distance walking and riding routes in England, wandering all the way from Worcester to Shoreham and tracing the path of the fleeing Prince Charles in 1651.

In West Sussex the Monarch’s Way passes from Stansted Park along the Downs to Steyning, and then descends to Brighton and, ultimately, Shoreham-by-Sea.  A truly historic route.
