Just 6 miles from the beach at Pevensey, this detached property lies in the grounds of a windmill.

Just 6 miles from the beach at Pevensey, this detached property lies in the grounds of a windmill.

This beautiful country property borders the grounds of a 200-year-old Grade II* listed windmill, the landmark that gives the village of Windmill Hill its name. The windmill has been carefully restored with the help of the Heritage Lottery Fund, other donors and a team of dedicated volunteers. The mill has a unique outer roundhouse and is the largest post mill in the UK. It is now an operating windmill, open to the public most Sunday afternoons from Easter to October. House guests can visit the mill at other times by prior arrangement. Entry is free but the Windmill Hill Windmill Trust relies on donations to ensure the continued maintenance of the mill. Windmill Barn has an enclosed garden to enjoy in the summer and has the benefit of private parking. During the winter you can curl up in front of the wood burner after a brisk walk through the surrounding countryside.
The property resides on some of the highest ground for miles around, and is set within ‘1066 Country’, overlooking the Pevensey Levels National Nature Reserve, beyond which is the English Channel. Visit the seaside town of Eastbourne, notable for its high sunshine levels and holder of the record of the highest amount of sunshine in a month. Take a boat trip and view the breathtaking white chalk cliff coastline known as Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters. Stroll the nature trails within the South Downs National Park, or visit Pevensey Castle, Herstmonceux Science Centre, Drusilla’s award winning small zoo, and the market town of Battle. Golf and fishing are available locally. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

    One of the best cottages I have stayed in it was large modern and finished to a very high standard and immaculately clean. Paul and Bee were extremely friendly and gave us an amazing welcome. Every detail however small was covered and I would strongly recommend this property to anyone!

    Our hosts were so helpful and polite, couldn't do enough for me and my wife. The barn was superb in every way with the added bonus of a real working windmill for a neighbour. Will be coming back soon, probably in the spring or summer to make the most of the many places to visit, as some were closed until March onwards.

    This property is a little gem! All the equipment and the facilities are top class - no expense spared. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and one or two unexpected gifts! For a quiet holiday could not be bettered.

    Beautiful and spacious accommodation with super amenities. Very charming, friendly and helpful owners. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon. Would highly recommend Windmill Barn for a perfect stay. Situated by a restored Windmill which is an added bonus.
