Description

Allen's Farm Oast nestles in an area of outstanding natural beauty with far reaching views over fields and trees. The Oast has been converted into a luxurious four bedroomed house using exceptionally high quality materials and finished to a supremely high standard. It provides very spacious and comfortable accommodation for eight. Authentic bricks and beams have been preserved to retain the innate character of the lovely old building but the latest materials have been used where appropriate to enhance the comfort and bring a sense of contemporary style to the living arrangements. The original farmhouse and other outbuildings are adjacent but do not overlook the property which feels beautifully remote but is actually only three miles from the charming medieval town of Mayfield with its lovely shops and pubs.  Many national treasures are nearby including Bodiam Castle, Sheffield Park, Batemans and there is plenty to keep the children happy with Go Ape at Bedgebury Forest, Drusillas Park at Alfriston, Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum or Herstmonceux Castle and The Observatory to name but a few!  Short breaks accepted in winter months only.
