    a little gem hidden out in the country,swallows taking there first flights from there nests beneath the thatch roof of the garage/snooker table area,watch the goats and chill out on either the balcony or the side patio area spent a week there and loved it ,Cynthia,s lemon drizzle cake and home pressed apple drink,marmalade,eggs and milk an ideal start to anyones holiday.we got to visit all along the coast from Brighton its tall British Airways 360i tower with views over east Sussex and beyond to Rye .Its within easy driving distance of all the coast and worth a visit is the Bluebell line with its steamtrains running from Sheffield park to East Grinstead a great day out.The barn has everything you need for a perfect holiday home from have both a shower room and a bathroom.the two bedrooms are a little petite but you sleep there so its all fine.

    This was our second stay at this lovely property and it certainly lived up to our happy recollections of the last visit. The owners have made a number of additions to the property, including adding a dining balcony and a patio, so if anything, this stay was even better than the last. The property is scrupulously clean, well-equipped, accessible and very comfortable for someone with limited mobility. The owners, Cynthia and Chris are welcoming, helpful and friendly and the property is within easy reach of many interesting places to visit. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning again in the future.

    One of the best holiday homes we have stayed in, lovely property in a very peaceful location & perfect hosts. If I was going to be super critical I would say the bedrooms are a little on the small side but with such lovely surroundings & views why would you stay in the bedrooms once awake.

    The owners could not have been more welcoming or helpful and they went out of their way to assist in all ways possible to ensure our stay was one to savour. Outstanding.

    Fantastic short break in a lovely barn.. beautiful location, wished we had booked for longer. Made to feel very welcome by the owners, the 'little extras' were delicious, thank you.. Would highly recommend Swallows Barn for all ages.. It has everything you need for a really comfortable stay. Loved it!

    If you are looking for great walks, getting right up close to nature, warm cosy nights with a log fire in a cute little barn and the occassional visit to the pub about 25 minutes walk away - then this is perfect for you. We went from Firday night to Sunday. On arrival we were so unprepared. We had no food at all. We didnt realise there was no shop nearby. Cynthia, the owner of the barn was so lovely. She drove to the shops for us, with a shopping list we gave here and bought everything we needed. That was so kind. She also gave us a massive torch, meaning we could walk the country road to the beautiful Ash Tree Pub in the nearby village of Brownbread, in the dark on the country roads. She did offer to drive us and fetch us, but we like the idea of walking home under the stars. The pub is excellent. Could rival any of the great gastropubs in london. On saturday, Cynthia gave us a map of a 6.5 mile circular walk through the countryside, which was stunning!! We took our time, got lost a few time and after 6 hours of walking (with lunch at the pub in the middle) we finally arrived home, settled in front of the fire with a nice glass of red. What a lovely relaxing getaway only an hour from london.

    A excellent holiday cottage, very clean and homely. The owners Cynthia & Chris very welcoming and great hosts. Cottage is situated in a quiet rural location ideal for a peaceful stay, but only about 10 mins by car to Battle and 20 mins by car to Hastings. overall a great place to stay.

    After our original holiday accommodation cancelled our booking very late in the day, we had to quickly find an alternative and came across this little gem. Thank goodness the original people cancelled! Fantastic week spent at swallows barn. Hard to find any negatives; lovely owners, clean, a well equipped kitchen, beautiful peaceful setting, abundance of wildlife and enjoyment watching the owners' animals. Our daughter had a lot of fun interacting with the goats and pigs. It was a really relaxing week. Only slight niggle was the small bedrooms, but that really is being picky and didn't spoil our stay. We would definitely come back again....don't want to recommend as we'd like to keep this property a secret, but we would, of course recommend!
