A lovely little traditional Oast House on owners' 17th century working farm. There are 60 acres of rolling farmland to explore, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. This unique self-catering property has been sympathetically refurbished to a high standard to ensure a comfortable stay.

The property is situated on a secluded and very quiet country lane and has a private driveway. The enclosed private garden is safe for children. When exploring the farm, care should be taken near ponds, wells, the bordering stream and of course the animals! You will have the use of your own private garden with BBQ facilities. Due to the fact that this is a working farm with livestock, regrettably we cannot allow dogs.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago for a stay in September 2015 NEW

We stayed here for 5 days at the end of a driving trip around the UK. What can I say, this place is amazing. The cottage is spotlessly clean, the shower hot, and the bed the most comfortable we slept in for the entire month. There was even a welcome pack of a few basics, bread, milk, fresh fruit and... more

We were delighted with the Oast and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who wants a quiet secluded hideaway in the gorgeous Sussex countryside, within an hour's drive of central London. Apart from the delightful spot on this small farm, the cottage itself was well presented exactly as described in the particulars. Everything was clean and the welcome... more

The Oast House is located on a farm down a narrow farm road. It is very quiet and peaceful. The welcome kit was very much appreciated. There needs to be some more attention to detail. We felt that we had to wash every dish and pan we used. The shelf where the pots were stored was dirty and greasy (see...
