Puttenham Camping Barn
Puttenham, being on the North Downs Way long-distance footpath, attracts many walkers and this led to the opening of the Eco Camping Barn – just off the village street – in 2005. Set in part of a Grade II Listed Building, conversion was done very much in harmony with the old place, and the Eco Camping Barn now welcomes hundreds of walkers and cyclists a year by offering simple overnight accommodation between Easter and October.
The Eco Barn has many “green” features, including solar panels (on the bike shed roof!), rainwater harvesting and local varieties of apple trees in the garden, with the entire project run by a small environmental charity – and wholly by volunteers, who invite others to join them. In 2015 the Parish Council nominated the Eco Camping Barn to be registered as an Asset of Community Value.
