    Nestling in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Peacock Barn 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.

    "If you need to get away, the Peacock Barn is the place, quiet with fantastic views. Lovely couple who run manage the property, on hand if needed but leave you alone and very self contained with a private courtyard. Highly recommended"
    Sarah ‐ 14 Aug 2019
    "Fantastic holiday home in a great location, ideal for exploring 1066 Country & beyond. The barn has everything you need & more, a real home from home. Nina & John (the owners) are so friendly & helpful. Our dog loved the enclosed garden, resident peacock & horses. Loads of walks from the barn door, just so relaxing. I would definitely recommend staying here. Happy holidays!"

    "Excellent cottage and excellent owners who although living onsite were very unintrusive, would recommend to families and also great for pets too as fully enclosed and dog friendly. we will certainly be looking to return at some point."

    "A delightful barn in a stunning part of the country. Beautifully furnished with everything you could possibly need during your stay. The location is relaxing but also within easy reach of fantastic places to visit."
    Barbara ‐ 22 Jun 2019
    "A lovely cottage with very friendly owners, a resident peacock and molly the dog and her teddy friend. The views from the patio were picturesque and the cottage had excellent beds and super wi-fi. A good local pub with excellent food was half a mile away and a local train station a couple of miles away made for easy access to London and the coast. We would highly recommend this cottage."

    "Fantastic location, views superb, great weekend getaway from London. Owner kind and welcoming. Well appointed accommodation in excellent location. Local pub at top of lane served delicious meal. Thank you very much!"

    "A really lovely, comfy, quiet cottage with beautiful views. Owner was lovely and provided everything we needed, including a crib and changing mat for baby. Being on a working farm is lovely. There is a lot to do in the local area including some great local walks. You do have to drive for a supermarket etc, but we got some shopping delivered so it didn't bother us. We would definitely stay again!"
