A beautifully located Dutch style barn with lovely open plan sitting room with breakfast bar and spacious well equipped kitchen area with a gas hob and electric oven cooker, retro style fridge with freezer compartment a separate boot\utility room with dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. Open plan stairs from the kitchen lead to a landing with bathroom having roll top bath with shower over, toilet and sink, a few steps lead to the open plan large family bedroom with a super kingsize bed and a day bed which converts to 2 singles or a double bed. The barn is set in an idyllic situation nestled in a wild meadow and within the grounds of the historic Brede Place (take a look on the internet). This newly converted barn not only overlooks the award winning gardens of the Sheephouse (where Laurence Olivier proposed to Vivien Leigh) and the picturesque Brede Valley, but is surrounded by beautiful walks along the 1 km secluded drive, which leads to meandering public footpaths, which offer the opportunity to explore abundant plant and wildlife. Fresh produce is available from the Sheephouse kitchen garden when in season. To keep your life up to date, Internet is available either hardwired or wireless via a tabletop 3G/4G Dongle.
20 minute drive away is the amazing Camber Sands beach, complete with sand dunes and miles of golden sands or Rye Harbour with its nature reserve with a variety of rare birds and a path to Winchelsea's pebble beach. Even closer is the historic Cinque Port of Rye (where Mapp and Lucia was filmed) here you can wander the cobbled streets within the Citadel with its quintessentially English houses - visit the Norman church and climb up to it's viewing tower with a birdseye view of the area, visit the Ypres tower (built 1249) or the gun gardens, relax in a variety of coffee shops, pubs and restaurants and browse around the converted grain warehouses for bric-a-brac and collectables at the quayside. Rye also has a great independent cinema where as well as current movies you can be lucky enough to catch an opera or ballet streamed live from the Royal Opera House in London or perhaps a Shakespeare play from the Globe theatre.
30 minutes drive away is the Hastings National Park (the Fire Hills) which has outstanding views and miles of walks accessed from Fairlight or the East Hill funicular railway at Hastings old town. The old town boasts the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe with fisherman's huts selling freshly caught fish and shellfish which is very popular, as is the Jerwood Gallery and newly opened Hastings pier or perhaps a game of crazy golf along the seafront.
National Trust Houses and gardens such as Sissinghurst, Pashley Manor, Batemans, Great Dixter, Hole Park and Lamb House (situated in Rye and where the author Henry James lived) are also easily accessed.
If you fancy going further a field (approx 45 minutes) Eastbourne and its Marina are well worth a visit - the Marina has a very continental feel where the restaurants, with plenty of outside seating, are clustered around the Marina's main harbour. Dungerness with it's 25 mile narrow gauge steam railway to Hythe is also a great day out. Travel 45 minutes and enjoy some designer outlet shopping at Ashford, where you can also pick up the high speed rail service which will take you to London in around 38 mins. Ashford International will take you to Paris or Brussels the options are endless.
