Living Area

Comfortable sofas and chairs provide seating to relax in front of the television or to enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove. Large glass doors to the front and back provide abundant light and breath taking views of the Sussex countryside ahead and the garden with the Sussex Downs behind it to the rear. The limestone flooring with its underfloor heating throughout adds a touch of cosiness and comfort during the winter months.

Limited Mobility

We have sought to make Tagents Barn easily accessible as we believe that living in the barn and enjoying the garden and the wonderful views with a variety of wild life will contribute to making a memorable holiday for those who have limited mobility.

Access to the barn for wheelchair users is via a ramp leading from the setting down area for cars to the double doors opening immediately onto the ground floor living area.

The ground floor bedroom and bathroom are suitable for use by wheelchair users. Wheelchair users cannot, however, directly access the garden from the main living area as there are steps to navigate.

If you have any questions relating to special needs please contact us and we will see what we can do to help.

Ancient Oak, Modern Convenience

The property is heated by a Swedish ground source heat pump with underfloor heating throughout and it is insulated to a very high standard. It is therefore extremely cosy. Most of the lighting is LED. We therefore believe the barn is virtually carbon neutral. For guests in winter who want an open fire to curl up in front of, the Jetmaster fire, and a bag of logs, are waiting.

The mezzanine bedrooms have a balcony view of the open plan living area thereby retaining the totally open feel of the barn. Privacy curtains in the glass balcony bedroom (not shown in the photographs) can be drawn at night so that it is not possible to see from one bedroom to the other.

Double doors on the ground floor open out onto the newly planted private walled garden with a large open bay flint barn along one side suitable for games or dining. There is also a lawn and terraced area with a Weber gas barbecue and firepit and garden tables and chairs.
