    The Games Barn, rated a 3 - star home by Tourism in England, is situated in an extremely quiet location on a 30 acre working farm in the heart of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Sussex . The farm has a small number of animals including horses, sheep, pigs , chickens and ducks and includes a stream with weir and ponds.

A spacious accommodation in a fairly secluded spot right in the middle of the South Downs - and to make it even better, on a working farm which our girls aged 7 and 9 enjoyed no end, as the hosts were happy to let them help feed the animals. Madeleine and Fred are lovely and we could not have had... more

Thanks for this lovely review. We are so glad that your girls enjoyed life on our farm and we hope to see you all again soon. more

We stayed at the Games Barn for a weeks family holiday. The accommodation was roomy and comfortable. We were 3 generations: 3 couples and 2 small children and fitted easily into the four double bedrooms. The cot and highchair provided were also very useful. We made most of our meals in the Barn and found all the utensils needed in... more

Sadly it is something we cannot fix but we do try to make it clear on our website that broadband in rural Sussex is super slow... more

I travelled from Australia with my husband, 2 young children and my parents and we stayed at the barn for close to 4 weeks. We chose the Games Barn based on it's location which was extremely close to family who lived in Heathfield. The rental could not have suited our needs more - there was more than enough space for... more

Management response:

Thanks for this lovely review. It is great to know that a family like yours can stay here for over 3 weeks and feel as if it is a home - that is exactly what we hope to achieve with all our guests. We note your comment about the shower area. It is a difficult balance between being disabled friendly... more
