Mayfield, East Sussex, England
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!

Had a wonderful stay at the Games Barn - - great farm stay. Our friends kids loved the whole experience - not your every weekend that you get to help feed the animals with Madeline and Fred! Also stocked up our freezer from the farm - that quality and flavour you just can't find in the supermarkets. 9 piglets born...

Management response:

Thanks for this and for the advert for our meat! We think it is delicious but are a bit biased so it is good to have some independent feedback. Hope to see you again soon (maybe when your freezer empties!)
