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

Thanks for this review. We are glad that, despite the unseasonal wet August weather, you still enjoyed all that the farm has to offer. We note your comments about the mobile and internet . 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

We note your comment about the shower area. It is a difficult balance between being disabled friendly... more

We had a relaxing family holiday here with the youngest being 5 and the oldest 60 plus. Everyone had a lovely time. We had our first cup of tea of the day outside on the decking watching the animals. The lambs were so entertaining! Fred and Madeleine made us very welcome and were happy for us to join in with...


Management response:

Thanks for this lovely review. We try to ensure that all our guests can help around the farm if they wish and your group certainly enjoyed the farm experience. We are equally pleased that others in the group were able simply to chill out in the peace and quiet. We hope to see you all again sometime. more
