  The Highlights...

  • A generous Welcome Pack is also included in your stay and on request, a breakfast or dinner hamper can be provided full of delicious things from local suppliers and the organic kitchen garden.

  • Youll be spoilt for choice with places to visit nearby. Visit the Millennium Seed Bank at Wakefield Place, travel by steam train on the Bluebell Railway or visit Rudyard Kiplings house.

  The Detail...

Discretely nestled in the rolling Sussex countryside is the Tack Barn, a purpose-built sustainable holiday home nestled amid the private wood of the classy country house next door.

The Tack Barn has a spacious kitchen/living area that is flooded with light thanks to the many vast glass French windows that open straight onto a wraparound deck. In the kitchen youll find modern appliances and everything you need to take advantage of the amazing produce available nearby. Although the Tack Barn is self-catering, the owners can arrange breakfast and meal hampers from local suppliers for you, all you have to do is cook.

The living area features a log burner and comfy sofas where you can sit back and watch the day unfold over the kind of large pond you only ever find next to really nice houses.

The lone bedroom is full of small personal touches that make the biggest difference (for example, the Egyptian cotton sheets on the king size bed are line dried). Even more French windows open out onto the deck so you can even sit in bed and admire the view of that pond. The bathroom features a double-ended bath, towels are fluffy and organic, and they even supply candles if you need some extra help relaxing.

Outside there is a dining area next to the kitchen and a fire-pit for when the evenings take a chill. The woodland garden is perfect for a walk, and residents are welcome to stroll in the main garden and watch the sun set from the jetty.

If that all sounds too relaxing, youll be pleased to learn that youre just a few miles from Lewes and its cafs, pubs and antiques markets. A famously creative region, youll find numerous paintings, sculptures and crafts from local contemporary artists filling the walls and adorning the shelves of the Barn itself.

Alexia Cunningham says...
"My husband and I found this little gem for a desperately needed break in March. It did not disappoint on any level - it has everything you need for an amazing relaxing time - even the odd chicken, donkey and dog to meet too. The host, Corina, is lovely and extremely knowledgable about the area and what you can do (she leaves you a little welcome pack of essentials too). The barn is kitted out with anything and everything you could want for cooking and relaxing. The surroundings are rural but there is so much to do within easy reach whether towns or walks. Lewes is not far and has amazing independent shops to mooch around! We will definitely be back and could not recommend this place to stay enough! Try it, you won't regret it!"
