Surrounded by fields, this holiday property is set in a peaceful location and is an ideal base for exploring Sussex.

What a treat! This meticulous, detached barn conversion, originally built in the 1800’s, is set within the owner’s 37½ acres of lush greenery. You’ll have sole use of the orchard area, and will be surrounded by fields of sheep, geese, ducks and chickens. Chilsham Barn has been renovated to a remarkable standard, with travertine marble floor and eye-catching, exposed timber framework throughout. This property is filled with character and oozes charm, but also provides guests with fresh features to create a home from home feel. Boasting traditional features combined with a contemporary design, it creates something quite magnificent.
Natural light floods the open plan living/dining room through the floor-to-ceiling, full length windows. As the sun sets, and it becomes dark outside, the large chandelier will create a cushy ambience throughout. The property is equipped with underfloor heating and a wood burner to keep you toasty even in the bitter winter. With a stylish, out-of-the-way kitchen, you’ll have a perfect setting to put your culinary skills the test and cook up a delight. When snuggled up on the sofa, you can enjoy a mug of hot chocolate and a family film on the 52” Freeview TV with Netflix.
Once you’re ready to call it a night, let the impressive, open-tread, oak stairs lead you up to the bright, galleried landing. When upstairs, you’ll discover two beautifully, minimalistic bedrooms, with high vaulted ceilings, that sing of a blissful night’s sleep. Enjoy ultimate peace and quiet in the tasteful en-suite bathrooms, with contemporary furnishings.
In the summer months, the outdoor seating area is perfect for you to enjoy a morning coffee, or an al fresco evening meal. You can sit out and watch the children play in the large grassed area, whilst you take in the beautiful, far-reaching views. Chilsham Barn is a property you don’t want to miss, it is nothing short of remarkable!

Four steps to entrance. Beamed, open-plan living/dining room with wood-burning stove, French doors and well equipped kitchen area with travertine marble floor. Cloakroom with toilet. Open-tread, oak stairs to first floor (open to one side): Galleried landing.

    We spent a midweek at Chilsham Barn during the Easter holidays. It's a very beautiful and comfortable barn conversion in very peaceful and quiet surroundings. The barn is very well equipped, with an eye for detail. There are two bathrooms, which made it excellent for a couple and two children. The hosts made us feel very welcome. There were Easter decorations and a welcome basket. We highly recommend Chilsham Barn for a stay in the beautiful South.
