This beautiful country property borders the grounds of a 200-year-old Grade II* listed windmill, the landmark that gives the village of Windmill Hill its name. The windmill has been carefully restored with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, other donors and a team of dedicated volunteers. The mill has a unique outer roundhouse and is the largest post mill in the UK. It is now an operating windmill, open to the public most Sunday afternoons from Easter to October. House guests can visit the mill at other times by prior arrangement. Entry is free but the Windmill Hill Windmill Trust relies on donations to ensure the continued maintenance of the mill. Windmill Barn has an enclosed garden to enjoy in the summer and has the benefit of private parking. During the winter you can curl up in front of the wood burner after a brisk walk through the surrounding countryside.
The property resides on some of the highest ground for miles around, and is set within ‘1066 Country’, overlooking the Pevensey Levels National Nature Reserve, beyond which is the English Channel. Visit the seaside town of Eastbourne, notable for its high sunshine levels and holder of the record of the highest amount of sunshine in a month. Take a boat trip and view the breathtaking white chalk cliff coastline known as Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. Stroll the nature trails within the South Downs National Park, or visit Pevensey Castle, Herstmonceux Science Centre, Drusilla’s award winning small zoo, and the market town of Battle. Golf and fishing are available locally. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    We had a lovely week at windmill barn, we had a very warm welcome from Paul when we arrived and he showed us around the barn. We found it really cosy, absolutely spotless, well equipped and it has a real quality finish. It has everything you need and is only a short walk from the village centre where there is a lovely pub, a couple of take aways and a village store. We will definitely stay there again.

    Hosts were friendly and the place was very comfortable and well kitted out. We had a lovely rest. Like the large tv and wood burner.

    From the moment we arrived the owner Paul was so friendly and attentive yet never intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble. We metc his wife Bee during afternoon tea before the Windmill tour and she was such a lovely lady too. Windmill Barn is stunning and we could easily have stayed longer. We will definitely return.

    Sadly did not get to enjoy the Barn or the area fully as we were called back early for a family bereavement. However, our three brief nights there were most enjoyable. The property is first class and Paul was there to greet us and show us around...We did travel to see the Giants of Brede, Battle, Bayham Abbey, Scotney Castle, Bateman's and Bodiam Castle...Hope to return!
