About Alison Hall
I was born only 10 miles away and although I have travelled and lived around the world, I have come back home as I love it. I have three grown up daughters, two of them live in Australia. My youngest daughter is a vet and lives from home.
Alison Hall purchased this Barn in 1998
Why Alison Hall chose Thakeham
When I first saw this farmhouse and buildings it felt as if time stood still here. I loved the garden, trees, pond and stream that had flowed past these old buildings for centuries. It is a haven for wildlife too and easy to pass the time just standing still.
What makes this Barn unique
Although in the country, we are not cut off. There are lots of attractions in the cities nearby too. So there is something for everybody.

WOW a Truely Perfect Cottage *****
The cottage lived up to all we expected, from the spacious living room and bedroom to the absolutely gorgeous kitchen. We stayed over the august bank holiday weekend with 3 adults and 2 children under the age of 5. We booked the self contained annex above as well but there was plenty of space downstairs for us all. The cottage looks out over the back to some stunning countryside and the sun coming through the bi fold doors in the morning was just perfect. We did have the weather on our side this weekend but I expect is just as lovely in the winter. The cottage has everything you need. Alison has literally thought of everything.. The grounds are enclosed and I felt that my children could run around outside and they were perfectly safe, my girls loved the horses in the paddock next door and went to see them every morning. My girls also fell in love with her dog, Sonic and they really enjoyed playing with her and throwing her the ball, which she always brought back.. We drove in to Brighton for a day trip which took about 30 mins and was really easy to get to from this location. We really did have a wonderful weekend here, our only gripe was we wish we had booked for longer. Alison your place is amazing, we will definitely be back next year. Thank you for having us.
It was wonderful to have such a happy family come and enjoy the cottage. What a lovely weekend it was. Sonic was sad you all went home, as was I. Come again.
