The Games Barn, rated a 3 - star home by the AA, 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 cows, sheep, pigs , chickens and ducks and includes a stream with weir and ponds. The peaceful setting is ideal for those wanting to get away from it all in the middle of the countryside, but is just 2km from pubs, restaurants, shops etc. The excellent beaches of the south coast are all easily accessible and Ashdown Forest with its wonderful walks and cycle tracks is just 10 minutes away. The barn is also very suitable for family holidays with young children who can enjoy looking after the animals, collecting the eggs, feeding the pigs etc - all help gratefully received!
