About Spilstead Barn

Introduction

"Originally built in 1896 Spilstead Barn has been converted in 2018 into a delightfully welcoming holiday cottage. Still used for livestock and farming today the 22 acre estate sets the scene with stables greeting you opposite the front door.\nYou enter into the open plan living area with a modern kitchen shower room and the sitting and dining areas. You can see exposed glimpses of the original barn with the beautifully restored beams cleverly separating the spaces. An extra touch of luxury has been added too with new underfloor heating downstairs to keep your toes warm in colder months.\nThe stairs lead you onto a large landing with soft deep pile carpets and a cosy reading corner. There are two bedrooms one a twin with lovely oak furniture and a master bedroom at the far end with king size bed and fabulous views over the estate. There is also a smart shared bathroom to unwind in after a day out visiting the local towns and natural beauty of 1066 country.\nOutside you have a private fully enclosed garden. With children and dogs welcomed this is a perfect space for them to play while you relax on the decking and enjoy some shade and a book under the parasol. When you are ready to explore a little further head out of the gate and the hidden gem of Spilstead Barn is reached by a glorious half mile walk. Stroll past the paddocks on a tree-lined avenue along the old vineyard which meets the open fields and you will find the beautiful secluded private lake. With a picnic table and small rowing boat awaiting you can dip your toes in the water enjoy a spot of fishing or even take a leisurely swim around the island."

What makes this area so special

Sedlescombe is a small village in the heart of 1066 country, East Sussex. There is plenty to do on the doorstep; from wine tours at several local vineyards, a drink or meal at one of the local pubs (The Brickwall, Queens Head or Royal Oak), a round of golf, to a cheerful seaside day trip.. With historic Battle and Hastings within a short drive, it is impossible to ignore the dramatic landscape in which an iconic battle was fought. You can also explore Bodiam Castle 5 miles away, and a little further afield is the Cinque Ports town of Rye. Bewl Water is 10 miles away and offers various watersports, and the Bodiam Boating Station is 9 miles away which offers river cruises, kayak and boat hire for a relaxing day out.
