Description

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.

    We enjoyed our stay but the bed was a little small for us as we are used to a larger space to sleep - the rest was fine.
