Nestling in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Peacock Barn is a single-storey, detached, barn conversion. It has been thoughtfully converted to a high standard and enjoys far reaching rural views. A peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life surrounded by 80 acres of working farmland with sheep, horses and of course, a resident peacock! The property is accessed from Burwash village via a half mile lane and maintained track, with a 15th-century pub at the village end of the lane, serving local ales and good food, which makes for an enjoyable walk. There are miles of walking opportunities directly from the farm. Burwash itself is steeped in history and was a notorious spot for smugglers and highwaymen in the 18th and 19th centuries. The pretty, weather-boarded high street is a conservation area, and Bateman’s mansion, a fine example of Jacobean architecture, is just outside the main village. It was once owned by Rudyard Kipling and is now open to the public (NT). Battle Abbey lies 9 miles to the south east, Bodiam Castle, (also NT) with its fairytale moat, is 8 miles to the east. Enjoy a trip on the Kent and East Sussex steam railway which runs from Bodiam to Tenterden, known as ’The Jewel in the Weald’, through 101/2 miles of beautiful Kent and Sussex countryside. Fishing, cycling and water sports can be enjoyed at Bewl Water, and the many award-winning local vineyards are an enjoyable day out. Camber Sands near Rye is a magnificent beach or discover the beaches at Hastings and Bexhill. Discover Bedgebury, not only offering the pinetum but also Go Ape too. The owner lives on site for your convenience and the parking is in the cottage grounds. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1/2 mile.

Living/dining room with wood-burning stove, open to well-equipped kitchen, all with wooden floors. Double bedroom with 6ft zip & link bed (can be twin). Further double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom with separate shower cubicle and toilet.

    We loved our stay at The Peacock Barn. It is an extended and converted old farm building, on the edge of a working farmyard. Nina and John were the perfect hosts, Peacock Barn was immaculate and very well equipped and our two dogs were made to feel as welcome as we were! We really couldn't fault anything. Locally there so much to see and do too, with beautiful countryside, forests and historic places such as Battle, Rye and Bodium Castle all close by. The village has a great little supermarket, and at the top of the farm track is a really terrific pub, serving great food. The farm is at the end of a very long, quite narrow access track that will have you doubting the Sat Nav, but eventually opens up into stunning views over the valley. The barn has an outside patio and a large parking area, which is all fenced and (for our Border Collies at least) dog-proof! Finally, there really is a Peacock living here, but you won't be sharing the barn with him....
