Description

Quebec Barn is full of history from Neolithic occupation to WWII, and there’s even a restored 14th century dovecote in the grounds!

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. Cycle through the woods to the lighthouse, or down the lanes and breath the fresh air whilst spotting birds such as buzzards and egrets. In the evening why not cycle to the cosy pub nearby before retiring to your barn in the woods. Enjoy wildlife in the South Downs National Park. Horse riding stables, 5 miles at the old smuggling village of Alfriston. Visit Brighton and the historical ’Lanes’, Eastbourne and stroll along the Victorian pier, Drusillas Zoo, Beachy Head and Glyndebourne (opera in the grounds during the summer) within 5 miles.

    We had a lovely time visiting an area I've not seen for 50 years - Quebec Barn was an excellent location from which to explore. a good place for local food - apart from that produced by the property owner there's the Sussex Ox, well worth a visit, and lots of places in Brighton, Riddle & Finns being the standout place for me. It was warm, the sea was clear & blue, the cliffs were entrancing, & Brighton fascinating as ever. Even the weathr was good!
