Firkin Barn is a lovely old barn, set within the ancient walled garden of Morley Farm, an estate reaching back some 600 years. It has been carefully converted to retain its many historic features, beams, ragstone walls and ancient brickwork and offers a high standard of comfort including cosy wood burning stove, quality linen, fluffy white towels, toiletries, fresh flowers, wine and our own "very" free range eggs.
Morley Farm is just outside the historic village of Northiam with its picturesque village green and many ancient houses including the famous Great Dixter and gardens. The property is set well back from the road and has plenty of parking. Guests have use of a private gym with table tennis within the old barn, - another characterful addition, heavily beamed, with flatscreen TV at one end. Outside, guests can also enjoy our lambs in springtime and maybe even feed a newborn tiny one.
First floor rooms enjoy wonderful vaulted ceilings. The main self contained cottage area has two double bedrooms, (one with additional truckle single bed) and two bath/shower rooms (one ensuite). Downstairs there is a further cloakroom, a fully fitted and integrated kitchen and a light sunny living room with cosy log burner for cooler days. All are enhanced with carefully chosen furnishings and colourful rugs.
At the far end of the barn is a separate "Bedroom Suite" - an additional double bedroom and bathroom bookable separately if additional accommodation is required for your family/group. It is not a stand alone property, simply additional sleeping accommodation approached via a separate front door and only available to guests. This design works brilliantly since it ensures that whilst the barn is spacious it is always cosy even for just a couple - it is never cold and drafty as some barns can be, since when not in use the extra accommodation is not open!
The Bedroom Suite, also has a wonderful vaulted ceiling, and is similarly furnished as the main barn. It has an ensuite shower bathroom, and tea/coffee making facilities. It is bookable separately at £30.00 per night if required.
The whole has an abundance of character and the wonderful happy atmosphere of a home that has been enjoyed for hundreds of years!
Outside, within the walled garden, Firkin Barn has its own sunny yet well screened brick terrace, complete with barbecue, sun shade and sun loungers in summer, making this an ideal property for breaks at any time of year.
