About Anna Hardy
We moved to Warningore in 2007 and have spent the last 11 years renovating the house, outbuildings and garden. As a garden designer and lover of bees, chickens, spaniels and wildlife in general, this place is a haven of tranquility we would like others to enjoy. Alternatively you could ask my husband for advice on mountain and road cycling, walking the South Downs Way or my children on how to make the most of Brighton, The Lanes and the beaches.
Anna Hardy purchased this Barn in 2007
Why Anna Hardy chose Lewes
Rural retreat with stunning views, privacy, yet close to Brighton, Ditchling and Lewes. Newly renovated historic barn designed and built to a high specification and about to be submitted for a SDNP design and build award. A mix of interior flint walls, clay floors (underfloor heated) floor to ceiling glass and green oak, combine a feel of the historic with contempary.

Idyllic Getaway in the South Downs National Park
We had a delightful stay at the barn. It's a wonderful recent conversion with a beautiful garden and glorious views.
It was an easy 10 minutes drive to Lewes for the groceries and we enjoyed dinners at the local Jolly Sportsman and The Bull in Ditchling.
Checkin and checkout were simple and the hostess, Anna was very helpful.
Simply gorgeous !
A fabulous base from which to explore the area including walking parts of the South Downs Way. Flint barn was very stylish and exceptionally comfortable. The pub The Jolly Sportsman was a short walk away and served excellent food and very good value.
Perfect Base for Walks
The cottage was amazing! So quiet too. Had absolutely everything we could want including an extremely well appointed kitchen, very comfortable bedding and several lovely lounge areas all in a peaceful location. Hosts were wonderful! Can’t wait to return.
Amazing property. Easy to find. A quality finished place that was wonderful
Sat nav took us straight to the property. A warm relaxing building with all the modern perks whilst still maintaining the quiet country experience. Already started recommending to friends and family. Would happily come again!!!
Lovely peaceful place to stay
The barn is beautiful, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and had plenty of space for our family of 5 plus dog.
Well presented and in a stunning location
Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this property and yet it is very close to Lewes. It has a very relaxing feel and is well presented throughout. On a chilly day the log burner is just lovely. Our dog was made welcome and there are nice walks from the cottage. Wished we could have stayed for longer
