The Little Barn studio is situated down a quiet, winding country lane in the Lower Weald of East Sussex and makes the perfect getaway for those seeking a tranquil base from which to explore the surrounding countryside. This oak-framed barn is situated only 3.5 miles from the town of Uckfield and is only 10 minutes to Glyndebourne where the famous Opera House is situated and Ashdown Forest known the world over for being the home of "Winnie the Pooh" is a ten minute drive away. The Little Barn is also well situated to take advantage of the many walks the area provides.  The Ouse Valley Way is located just half a mile down the lane and the footpath takes you all the way to historic Lewes, the county town of East Sussex. Both the Ashdown Forest and newly designated South Downs National Park are within easy driving distance. The National Trust run Sheffield Park, an 18th century informal landscape garden, and Wilderness Wood a family run sustainable woodland in the Sussex Weald are also popular places of interest nearby. For those interested in local wildlife The Little Barn can also offer badger watching as there is a sett at the bottom of the paddock and at least another four setts in the adjoining fields.
