    About this property

    This is an ideal holiday base for couples or a small family wanting to discover and explore Sussex and Kent.

    Nestling in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, S34778 is a single-storey, detached, barn conversion. It has been thoughtfully converted to a high standard and enjoys far reaching rural views. A peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life surrounded by 80 acres of working farmland with sheep, horses and of course, a resident peacock! The property is accessed from Burwash village via a half mile lane and maintained track, with a 15th-century pub at the village end of the lane, serving local ales and good food, which makes for an enjoyable walk. There are miles of walking opportunities directly from the farm. Burwash itself is steeped in history and was a notorious spot for smugglers and highwaymen in the 18th and 19th centuries. The pretty, weather-boarded high street is a conservation area, and Bateman’s mansion, a fine example of Jacobean architecture, is just outside the main village. It was once owned by Rudyard Kipling and is now open to the public (NT). Battle Abbey lies 9 miles to the south east, Bodiam Castle, (also NT) with its fairytale moat, is 8 miles to the east. Enjoy a trip on the Kent and East Sussex steam railway which runs from Bodiam to Tenterden, known as ’The Jewel in the Weald’, through 101/2 miles of beautiful Kent and Sussex countryside. Fishing, cycling and water sports can be enjoyed at Bewl Water, and the many award-winning local vineyards are an enjoyable day out. Camber Sands near Rye is a magnificent beach or discover the beaches at Hastings and Bexhill. Discover Bedgebury, not only offering the pinetum but also Go Ape too. The owner lives on site for your convenience and the parking is in the cottage grounds. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.
    Living/dining room with wood-burning stove, open to well-equipped kitchen, all with wooden floors. Double bedroom with 6ft zip & link bed (can be twin). Further double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    "Really lovely Barn in a fantastic location (if you are looking for great views and peace). Really well equipped. As per previous reviews only area for improvement is the sofa but didn't spoil our enjoyment.Really great walks on the doorstep and couldn't fault the owners who were really friendly."

    "The cottage was very well equipped and had good wifi. The surrounding area outside was very peaceful and beautiful being in the country side but still only a few minutes drive up the lane to the village. The nearby pub at the top of the lane, The Rose and Crown, is excellent.There are only two points I would make. The sofa is definitely past its sell-by-date, being hard and flat. Luckily there was another identical sofa in the living area and we put the two base cushions from that sofa on top of the ones on the other sofa making it a bit more comfortable. The bed is wonderful, being a super king size with good quality cotton bed liven.The other point to make is that directly behind the cottage on the same farm there are several artists studios. The road to these studios runs directly into the farm stabling area and immediately past our kitchen and living room windows. On one particular morning there was a fair bit of traffic coming and going, at one point with a vehicle reversing back and forth up the road past our windows whilst another had an engine running. This did distract from the peace. Later in the afternoon the traffic then departed causing more noise.Apart from those 2 points, everything was very good with a nice welcoming pack and very welcoming owners."

    "We had a great few days staying at S34778 - very comfortable and well equipped accommodation with stunning views!"
    Jeremy ‐ 18 Aug 2018
    "A really lovely two bed cottage in the grounds of a working farm. Stunning views. The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed for a week's stay. A car is needed to explore the area. Would definitely go back."

    "Great people, very nice place and horses. Peacock is a character, wonderful.Only downside, the couch is horrible, and one small frying-pan is to little. But owners are very friendly and nice wonderful people"
    Shan ‐ 5 Aug 2018
    "We had a lovely week staying at S34778 with our 3 young children. The cottage is well placed for lots of day trips. Well equipped, clean, comfortable cottage with reliable wi-fi. Owners Nina and John were friendly, on hand and flexible - pre agreed being able to charge our hybrid plug in car (which we reimbursed). Provided proper cot which was comfortable for our 10 month old baby.Only comment would be that the instructions for getting to the cottage could mention that the track from the pub is about 0.25-0.5 mile long."
    SERENA ‐ 15 Jul 2018
    "S34778 is set in a beautiful location. The barn has everything you could possibly require whilst staying away from home. The location is central to many National Trust properties and also within a short car journey to the sea. The barn is spacious and is tastefully decorated."
    Sharon ‐ 30 Jun 2018
    "We loved S34778 it was everything and more that we expected The views of the surrounding countryside were fantastic The barn was modern well equipped Nina and John made us very welcome Our two dogs Sasha and Mason loved the walks ."
    Robin ‐ 25 Jun 2018
    "Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday-very quiet and comfortable. Will be visiting again. Lovely having the peacock for company!"
    Janice ‐ 31 May 2018
    "We found S34778 very clean, comfortable and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The owners were helpful and friendly. There were many different, interesting places to visit in the area and wherever we chose to eat, the food was delicious, (including at the local village pub)! We would like to stay there again and would definitely recommend the cottage to others."
    Cheryl ‐ 28 May 2018
    "This is a lovely well equipped cottage in a super location within walking distance of excellent local amenities"
    Joy ‐ 2 May 2018
    "Delightful, tastefully furnished and well equipped cottage with stunning views over surrounding countryside. Owners were lovely - very friendly and relaxed. Exceptionally comfortable beds, which isn’t always the case in holiday accommodation! Lots to see and do locally. We had a lovely holiday and would like to return.If I was going to be absolutely picky I would say the sofa cushions could do with refilling - a bit saggy. But overall absolutely brilliant."
