About Helen McLennan
The Barn is in the grounds of our family home, so we are always around to suggest days out and deal with any questions. My husband, I, and youngest daughter, have lived here for over ten years and love this friendly village and beautiful countryside. We have a collection of animals, including chickens providing plenty of fresh eggs for guests. Together with my husbands collection of motorbikes!
Helen McLennan purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Helen McLennan chose Danehill
This is a beautiful part of Sussex and a very friendly village. The Barn is located in our half acre of landscaped gardens. The area has lots of wildlife, watch the deer graze in the fields around you whilst you enjoy a drink. Whilst we are rural London and Brighton are very easy to reach making this the perfect spot to explore the south east of England.
What makes this Cottage unique
This area is perfect for walking, cycling and horse riding with lots of local attractions to visit, yet so close to Brighton and London

Short break in Ashdown Forest area
A lovely cosy property with all the kitchen facilities needed. Spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed. Lovely garden outlook and close to all the activities of the Ashdown Forest
Showerroom very small and no where to put toiletries. Also sloping roofs in mezzanine bedroom and shower room a bit awkward for people near 6ft tall.
What a beauty place to stay . Everything you need for a fantastic break is included in this beautiful barn . Great selection of information + games . Comfy sofa + bed with lovely bed linen . Brilliant location with easy access to the main roads around the area .
Lovely summer weekend break
We had a lovely weekend staying here. It’s a well converted barn equipped with all you need, set in a lovely garden and in a beautiful part of the country. Lots to do nearby but generally we just wanted a quiet weekend getaway and it was perfect. A very relaxing stay. Thank you!
We had a wonderful few days in Danehill but needed more time to see all the things we planned to see so I guess we'll be back sometime. The Barn was a lovely little hideaway. Very clean with everything we needed on our break. We loved the little patio outside and had our meals there each evening while planning what we were going to do the next day with the birds singing and the sheep talking away to each other. The bank opposite full of trees which are a wonderful colour this time of year. Thank you for letting us stay.
Perfect weekend destination
We loved our stay. Cosy, charming barn conversion in a beautiful rural area. The eggs from the hens in the fridge were a nice touch. The pub the coach and horses was a real gem too. Perfect, thanks
Lovely barn accommodation but the bathroom was very small.
Enjoyed our stay despite the very small bathroom area and vaulted ceiling in the bedroom was inconvenient at times. Lovely living /kitchen area and use of washing machine was a plus as the owners allowed use of their line. Great hosts - very helpful.
