Archaeology and history buffs will be in their element whilst staying at this Grade II listed barn steeped in history.

In the delightful Friston Forest village of Westdean, these carefully converted Grade II listed barns with exposed beams date back to 1597 and are double award winning (award for excellent conversion of a 16th-century listed ox barn). Now a Christmas tree and apple juice farm it was once owned by Alfred the Great. Free archaeology and history tour available for guests. Recent excavations revealed that the site had Neolithic occupation circa 2700BC, and an Elizabethan terrace and Jacobean banqueting house, the centre of a wider holding mentioned in the Domesday Book, which stretched from the River Cuckmere to Jevington. There are also ruins of an Elizabethan manor house, restored 14th-century dovecote and ox farmyard of the 18th and 19th century. Quebec Barn (ref 26956) was used as local headquarters by Canadian forces in WW ll. Walking plus cycle trails nearby, Seven Sisters Country Park, 1 mile, and a secluded beach 1½ miles.

    The accommodation was excellent- perfect for a short stay. We were welcomed in a very cheery manner and basics about the cottage were explained. The interior was warm and comfortable-just right for a Winter break.

    The cottage is comfortable and well equipped.its location is excellent to explore the surrounding countryside and National Trust properties including Beachy Head, Seven Sisters and local towns like Brighton. We enjoyed ourselves very much The directions could be a little clearer and whilst Wi-Fi was excellent most of the time it did fall away towards the end of our holiday. CRC

    A lovely single storey cottage. It is quite small, but very good as a base for visiting the local area. Everything we needed was provided and all facilities were working well.

    Beautiful scenic location. Ideal for walkers. Accommodation rather small. If not a walker, a car is essential.

    One of the best properties we have stayed in. Walking the dog from the property without using the car was a bonus. Forest or the beach both just a short walk away. Then coming back to the property which was just the right size for two plus dog had everything you needed for a relaxing few days.
