The Long Barn is part of the Grade II listed farmyard. The barn has a footprint of 67.5m2. The main living space is open plan with well equipped kitchen, dining table and sitting area. There is a wood fired Aga stove, HD TV, Blu-ray DVD player, stereo and wireless broadband. There are two bedrooms. Each situated at the gable ends of the building. One bedroom has a King Sized double bed with organic mattress and ensuite bathroom with a walk in shower. The other bedroom has two single beds with organic mattresses which we can zip together to a Super King double bed, and a bathroom with a bath and shower combined.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook some good meals (and what isn’t there we will have so just shout!), dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. You’ll be welcomed by homemade cake, made with organic ingredients of course, and a number of hints and tips about the surroundings to help kick start your holiday in this wonderful area.
The three barns are at Stone Cum Ebony, a secluded hamlet between Rye and Tenterden. Two barns sleep four and one barn sleep six and were converted in 2013. Restoring the barns we have aimed for a light, informal and relaxing approach. The style is a mix of modern and old, flooring is oak, coir and painted floors, grey, blues and naturals. The barns, which are heated by our wood chip boiler and use 100% renewable electricity, are part of the Grade II listed farmyard and has amazing views. Each barn has a wood fired stove, stereo, HD TV and wifi. We're in the middle of the countryside here and the views are spectacular, yet its only six miles to Rye or Tenterden, two lovely small towns. Our web site is www.oxneyestate.com.

A huge amount of thought and design has gone into this property which combines English and Scandinavian design elements. Not only is it very pretty, but it is also very practical and has everything you could ever need, including coffee, tea, well stocked kitchen, etc. We loved the fact that everything that could be was organic, including the beds! The wonderful Aga wood-burning stove kept us very warm. The location is great and we enjoyed wonderful walks, especially the Royal Military Canal. We also ventured into Rye and had a first-class lunch at the George. The owner couldn't be more helpful and supplied very useful tips about the area. Even in January, staying in the Long Barn was wonderful and we can't wait to return in the summer. We recommend it very highly!
We booked The Long Barn for a school half-term mini-break and had a lovely stay.
The location is perfect to explore the area, with Rye and Tenterden within easy reach and Hastings and Tunbridge Wells not much further - with vineyards and National Trust delights in between.
The barn is characterful and comfortable, modern and fresh and lovely and cosy. Of a very high standard and represented good value for money.
We were welcomed with homemade spiced apple cake and apple juice - both absolutely delicious and still meaning to get the cake recipe! The tennis court and games room were an added bonus.
After a long journey from the midlands we were delighted with our home for the week in Kent. The Long Barn was exceptionally clean and well appointed in a modern Scandinavian style. Kristin had left us some home made cake and apple juice which was very welcome after our journey. The Barn is situated in rolling countryside and the only noise is the occasional passing tractor and would definitely recommend this for exploring this interesting and peaceful part of England
A beautiful and peaceful holiday home in rural Kent. Comfortable and cosy. We really appreciated the home-made cake, apple & pear juice and wine etc ... after an overly long journey. thank you Kristin. Being all on the level it was great for our aged parents. It's close to many places to visit like Sissinghurst Castle, Great Dixter, Smallhythe Place and the Kent and East Sussex Railway to name but a few as well as some good places to eat. Our favourite was The Crown at Stone in Oxney.
We've just had a wonderfull stay at The Long Barn. Everything was perfect. The location was very good. We went to London by train (1 hour), nice walks, near the sea, etc.
The barn was beautifull. All the extra's, nice soap, flowers, cake, wine, apple juice, even eggs one day. This make you feel very special. Thank you Kristin, we had a wonderfull holliday!!!!
I will recommend The Long Barn to all my friends.
We've just returned from a fabulous stay in The Long Barn. If you are looking for somewhere truly special in rural Kent this could well be the pefect choice. From gorgeous bed linen and towels to all kinds of 'extras' in the kitchen such as fresh coffee, tea and even Ecover dishwasher tablets, the lovely owners, Kristen and Paul have literally though of everything to ensure a really wonderful holiday. Thank you so much - we are already planning our next trip!

The barns are nine miles from Camber Sands, a very large sandy beach with sand dunes stretching from East Sussex into Kent.
The barns are 70 miles from Gatwick (about 1.5 hours drive) and 95 miles from Heathrow (about 2.5 hours drive). The Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone is 38 miles away (60 minutes drive). The barns are very much in the middle of the countryside so a car is essential.
You can walk to the village of Stone. Stone has two pubs and a lovely old church. The two small towns of Tenterden and Rye are very close -- each a six mile (14 minutes) drive away.
