This magnificent Grade II listed barn conversion dating from the 1500's is situated on a small equestrian farm surrounded by fields and woodlands within the grounds of an equally ancient farmhouse. Heavily beamed throughout, this character property has stunning vaulted ceilings and high quality oak carpentry.  Pet friendly and sleeping 6, it offers great accommodation for family holidays with an option of booking an adjoining studio apartment above the open bay garage, which sleeps 2.  The Barn has a spacious open plan living area which can accommodate up to 8 guests comfortably, a bedroom on the ground floor and two further bedrooms on the first floor.  The ground floor has under floor heating throughout and there is also a wet room, suitable for guests with mobility requirements.  The surrounding countryside and woodlands are perfect for nature lovers and walkers and there is a small stream running behind the property. The medieval town of Mayfield is 3 miles away with its pretty high street shops and pub.  The ancient ruins at Battle Abbey and the 1066 battlefields are close by as are Sheffield Park Gardens and Bodiam Castle.  For the young ones Drusillas Park at Alfriston, the Bluebell Railway and Go Ape at Bedgebury are a must as is Royal Tunbridge Wells for its cafe culture, great restaurants and its range of independent shops.  Shop: 3 miles  Pub: 3 miles  Coast: 19 miles
