What a great surprise start to my birthday weekend. Pete has booked me into Little Oldwick Barn which has a beautiful Airstream  Overlander caravan to stay in. Which I love, and is owned and run by non other than the legendary speed sailor Paula Wickins Adams. LOVE IT!

What a find! We arranged a last minute get-away and stayed one night in the Airstream. The location is absolutely stunning and Paula was very friendly and accommodating. The van had everything we could possibly want, including snacks and a continental breakfast. In the evening we walked across the fields to a fabulous pub and watched shooting stars when we got home. It was such a treat to be somewhere so serene and peaceful and to escape from the routine. We will be back, maybe the Shepherd Hut next time.


Paula’s shepherd’s hut is divine and we were made to feel absolutely welcome. Located just outside of Chichester the setting is amazing—rolling fields and beautiful wildflower meadows. The hut overlooks Paula’s beautiful converted barn, airstream caravan, and bell tent. but there is still plenty of privacy. The hut itself is absolutely charming and totally comfortable—straight out of the pages of a design magazine and totally spotless. If the weather is good you can throw open the door and windows, and if not, cosy up inside and enjoy the beautiful painted ceiling. The little touches like tea and coffee, a vintage radio, and the offer of freshly cooked eggs for breakfast were just the icing on the cake. Thank you Paula!


This is a true piece of heaven… Fabulous in all senses, impeccable. We loved everything…Location, style, comfort and the host! We will be back soon!!!


I was under pressure to find somewhere for the night before we went to the America’s Cup and with most of the accommodation fully booked it was looking a disaster . But then expectantly I stumbled across your site and only as a result of your kind flexibility were we able to find a solution that exceed all of our expectations. This as you know then turned into a really pleasant evening that we all shared together, good food , good wine and good company.  I hope we were  not too intrusive and forgive us if this was the case but it is also our style when we are entertaining in Aldeburgh.

The racing as you may have seen was fabulous and the result perfect.


Perfect in every way. Paula was the most amazing host, she clearly cares so much about her guests. It shone through in every tiny detail, which made the whole stay extra extra special. We didn’t have a car but it was perfectly feasible. The surroundings are beautiful, with a lovely walk to two pubs, and other beautiful walks in every direction. We’ll be back to stay in the Airstream!


Travelled across the pond for the Goodwood Festival of Speed to find the Little Oldwick Barn to be anything but little – big in comfort, overall appeal and especially hospitality. It may look like a barn from the outside, but the gorgeous interior is quite the contrary – plush with modern amenities throughout. And, Paula is an absolutely wonderful host serving everything from delectable breakfast to late night banter, if you can handle that much fun! The location is brilliantly situated near the Goodwood estate and many other attractive destinations. Highly recommended to any traveler, Yankee or not!

The only place to stay South of London. Love your hospitality & home- absolutely lovely & gorgeous!

What a wonderful stay! Paula and Mark went out of their way to make our stay extra special. The Bell Tent we stayed in was decked out with a super comfortable blow up mattress, a bedside table and a little table and two chairs, which included a fruit bowl on top plus a big bottle of water. Stunning setting and perfect location with easy walk to Goodwood Festival. Tea and coffee were on offer which we could make ourselves but on both mornings we were greeted with cappuccinos and either warm pastries or a sausage bagel. Very much more than just your average pop up camping. More like glamping 🙂 We highly recommend staying here with these lovely people!


I booked this Shepherd’s hut for my parents’ wedding anniversary. Paula was welcoming, very good at staying in touch and giving information etc. My parents thought the hut was magical, had a lovely walk in the Downs, and are talking about visiting again. Thank you Paula!


Faultless from beginning to end. Everything as described and more. The finishing of the shepherds hut was stunning and far above expectation, and all the little finishing touches made it. We slept so well we’ve returned night feeling as well rested as if we’d been there a week, not just one night. Couldn’t recommend it more highly. Thank you Paula!
