About Medley's Barn

'Hidden up a bumpy track, on the edge of Ashdown Forest, Medley's Barn offers a boutique base from which to explore the region. All stripped oak floors and ancient beams, the two-bedroom property has its own tennis court, a rolltop bathtub and is surrounded by flower-strewn meadows and wild woodland. Originally a cart barn on a well-established fruit farm, today Medley's is sprinkled with botany books, sweet watercolours and various carvings which inject a lived-in vibe.' - The Arbuturian (September 2018)

Originally a cart barn on a well established fruit farm, this attractive barn conversion has been designed with a stylish interior and the layout creates a warm and relaxing environment to unwind in. Surrounded by fields and on the edge of woodland, you feel you really are in the middle of nowhere! The barn has a spacious open plan ground floor with huge windows stretching from the ceiling to the floor.

The kitchen has plenty of room for creating delicious holiday meals, with a generous rustic wooden table seating up to 8 people. Medleys Barn has a modern shower room on the ground floor and a Victorian style bathroom on the first floor between the two bedrooms. With wonderful beams and interesting features, this pretty barn conversion really is a charming place to get away from the rush of everyday life! Added to this, there is an adjacent well-kept tennis court for enthusiasts to use, with prior arrangement from the neighbouring owner, which just adds to the fun!
