Step into this characterful oak-beamed barn, tucked away in a beautifully tranquil corner of the Sussex landscape. Set in idyllic rolling countryside with beautiful views to the South Downs (and sunsets to die for) this converted eighteenth-century grain-barn has roaring fires to sit by in the evening and a selection of outdoor activities to enjoy in the sunshine. Located in a secluded country estate of more than 500 acres, the house is an ideal base to explore some of England’s most ancient unspoilt woodland: there are deer on the doorstep, and just a few minutes walk will take you to glades of oak and beech, carpeted with a spectacular show of bluebells in April and May, where the only sound is birdsong. The house has two cosy reception rooms, a television with all the Sky main channels (including Sport); while for those who prefer to tinkle away or join in a sing-song there is also an upright piano. The kitchen provides a bright open space perfect for family meals or celebrations, and leads on to a pretty conservatory where the breathtaking country views can even be enjoyed in the rain. The house has its own walled garden, perfect for secluded sunbathing or relaxing at cocktail hour. There is a championship-standard tennis court, recently resurfaced, in the garden of the neighbouring Manor, which is also available for use by guests. There are excellent local pubs and a number of stunning National Trust properties – including Sheffield Park, Standen and Wakehurst Place - just a short drive away. For children and anyone interested in the age of steam, the Bluebell Railway is ten minutes from the house by car. So too is Ashdown Forest, the home of Winnie-the-Pooh. Further afield, Bexhill-on-Sea, with its miles of beach, is just three-quarters of an hour away, as are Brighton and Eastbourne.In addition, the owners of the property have an association with a leading teacher of bushcraft, orientation and woodland survival skills, who runs regular courses in a corner of the estate woodland during the summer months. Some guests time their visits so that they or their children can attend his courses. Please contact Wild Wood Bushcraft if interested.
