The detail

Tucked away between the lovely market town of Lewes and the fabulous South Downs, Blue Door Barns offers you an enchanted getaway that combines luxury living spaces with gorgeous natural scenery. These quaint and stylish barns with their vintage interiors, surround a serene courtyard that has been carefully illuminated with dainty fairy lights to create a becalming atmosphere. The courtyard itself also features a cracking open fire and BBQ space for use throughout the warmer parts of the year.

These boutique barns, which were originally built in the 1600s, are not only stunning and comfy, but they were also once home to Quentin Bell, the son of painter Vanessa Bell who was a member of the Bloomsbury Group. They retain the artistic charm of their former owners with lovely chandeliers, vintage artwork and salvaged pieces of truly wonderful furniture making them the perfect place for a romantic getaway.

You can opt to self cater, or make the most of their incredible menu and wake up to fresh, home made breakfasts from their traditional Full English, complete with black pudding, to their healthy Winter-Warming Porridge with homemade apple compote, toasted seeds and honey. Blue Door Barns also has a treatment room where you can indulge in some extra pampering to make your romantic weekend away that little bit more special.

Situated near to the vibrant and bohemian seaside city of Brighton and Hove, you can also venture out into the surrounding countryside and enjoy the South Downs, Seven Sisters and the gorgeous Glyndebourne Opera House which hosts world famous opera from May to the end of August, and then some other interesting events throughout the year. But when it comes to things to do that isn’t all that’s on offer. You also have unlimited access to picturesque cycle tracks without a car in sight as well as a joyous bundle of classic pub lunch options, all of which offer lovely local ales. You can even try your hand at horse riding, paragliding or head out sailing on the open ocean. The living quarters here are so lovely that you may never want to step outside, but with so many wonderful things to do, right on your doorstep, we’d urge you to try.
