Take a look at
The market town of Heathfield is about 5 miles away and has a good range of shops, and the historic town of Battle is about 11 miles with its ruined Abbey and 1066 battlefields. Although surrounded by the glorious Sussex countryside with many footpaths and woodlands to enjoy (you can walk the 1.2 miles across the fields to the Brewers Arms at Vines Cross), the coast isn't too far way. Head off to Historic Rye and the golden sands at Camber or enjoy a day exploring the artistic North Laine area of Brighton. Bateman's, the home of Rudyard Kipling, Groombridge's Enchanted Forest and Drusillas Park are also nearby, making this a very popular holiday destination for all the family to enjoy.

Just wanted to say we had an absolutely fabulous weekend at Oast Lodge Barn, it is the most fantastic house and we had such an amazing weekend together. I have had many people ask about the property and have sent links to your website.
Also thank you for your help and support whilst booking, we will definitely be visiting again.

We had a wonderful stay at this house. Lots of space and separate living areas which we found great for the children to have their own space. Beautiful house in a lovely area. Great communication from Sarah. Thank you for a great stay.

A great space for our family gathering; spacious enough for us to enjoy together as well as separately! The log burner kept us toastie, making our stay extra special and cosy. There are four comfortable bedrooms in the main house; 2 had en suites with baths only but there is a shower over bath in the main bathroom. The separate barn with it’s own bathroom and separate walk-in shower was really handy for my elderly grandmother. The barn and main house were both surprisingly warm considering the open spaces and size. The kitchen had a good selection of utensils with plenty of cutlery and crockery, the double ovens were a bonus and there was plenty of space in the fridge for all our supplies! Sarah was lovely, a great host, made sure we had everything we needed ahead of our stay and quickly responded to any questions. Definitely recommend and would book again, I imagine a summer stay would be even better!
A stunning location
Heathfield is a small market town located in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Sussex. The town has a variety of independent shops, cafes, and restaurants, as well as a weekly market on Saturdays. There are also several pubs in the town, some of which serve traditional English cuisine.
For those interested in history, Heathfield has a number of notable landmarks and buildings. The most prominent is the 14th-century All Saints' Church, which has a beautiful interior and is well worth a visit. There is also the historic Heathfield House, which is now a residential care home but has a fascinating history as a country estate dating back to the 16th century.
The surrounding area of Heathfield is also rich in natural beauty and outdoor activities. There are several nature reserves nearby, including the Cuckoo Trail, which is a 14-mile walking and cycling trail that runs through the heart of the High Weald countryside. Other nearby nature reserves include the Ashdown Forest and the South Downs National Park, both of which offer stunning views and excellent walking trails.
For those looking for a bit of culture, there are several museums and galleries in the area. The Towner Art Gallery in nearby Eastbourne has an impressive collection of modern and contemporary art, while the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum near Lewes is a unique attraction that combines a collection of vintage cars with a nature reserve.
Finally, for families with children, there are several attractions in the area that are sure to keep everyone entertained. Drusillas Park near Alfriston is a popular family attraction with a zoo, adventure playgrounds, and a water park. The Knockhatch Adventure Park near Hailsham is another family-friendly attraction with a variety of outdoor activities, including go-karting and zip-lining.
The Horse and Groom does a smashing lunch and has a pub garden, just a 4 min drive in Rushlake Green or a very lovely half an hour walk from the house
The Brewers Arms does very decent pub grub, again a 5 min drive or a 30 min walk
The Star Inn is a little further afield and has a really nice mix of Mediterranean and British classics on the menu, 6 minutes in the car or 35 to walk.
