Sugarloaf Barn stands next to the woods from which it takes its name - surrounded by incredible countryside, its own pond, miles of walks and views to distant Eastbourne. Quiet and secluded - but close to the neighbouring Oast, farmhouse and cottage - all sharing the Sugarloaf name. Sit patiently and with luck watch the many deer come to steal a treat in the garden! The nearby village of Brightling is famous for its collection of fascinating follies, built by the eccentric Victorian squire, John 'Mad Jack' Fuller. They include the Needle, the Observatory, and the Sugarloaf - rumoured to be the result of a bet that Fuller lost! They are all  on your doorstep.  Shop: 3 miles Pub: 3 miles Coast: 14 miles
