Swan Barn Farm

The hidden gem of Swan Barn Farm nestles behind Haslemere’s bustling high street. It is the gateway to some of Surrey and Sussex’s finest countryside. You can enjoy a picnic and catch a glimpse of views down into pastures cloaked by a wooded valley. For keen walkers there are three major walks nearby. The first is the 64-mile-long Serpent Trail, which starts here. It was designed to showcase some of the finest views and breathtaking countryside in the south east. The footpaths also link to the nearby Sussex Border Path and Greensand Way. At Swan Barn Farm, we've long-term volunteers living in a specially designed eco-house built with locally sourced, sustainable wood from the Black Down Estate. We also have the Hunter Basecamp, where people on our working holidays stay while helping us with our work. The basecamp is also available for private hire. Important info: The buildings are only open to visitors on special open days, but you're welcome to view them from the outside from the public footpath and the orchard.
