We offer simple overnight accommodation for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. This is an imaginative project with a strong environmental emphasis.
The Camping Barn provides reasonably priced wardened accommodation - similar to, but more basic than a Youth Hostel. It is ideally located situated on the North Downs Way and the now-open Sustrans cycle route 22, between Guildford and Farnham at a point not served by any Youth Hostels.
Have a look at this Sustrans map for their location information on Puttenham Eco Camping Barn.
The barn is in Puttenham village in the west of Surrey directly opposite the ancient parish church. The full address is: The Street, Puttenham, Guildford, Surrey, GU3 1AR.
The Ordnance Survey grid reference for the barn is SU 933 479.
Please note that we have no parking for motor vehicles at the barn. If you have limited mobility and need to bring a vehicle, please contact us first.

Our wonderful old listed building has been sympathetically restored to be environmentally friendly. We have rainwater harvesting, solar electricity and solar hot water. The restoration we have carried out enables you to see traditional and sustainable construction methods. A lockable cycle storage shed is available - designed by cyclists for cyclists! In addition to the sleeping area there is also a communal kitchen and a shower-room. The barn does its best to cater for people with disabilities.
