Battenhurst Barn is located in the beautiful Sussex countryside near the picturesque village of Burwash where you will find Batemans the home where Rudyard Kipling once lived and a good selection of pubs, tea shops and antique shops. With public footpaths from the barn it is a perfect place to unwind yet only an hour by train to London and half an hour to the coastal resort of Hastings.

The space

Recently converted, the Barn is spacious and modern yet with rustic charm! You will have exclusive use of the Barn in the Oast grounds so you can come and go as you please and have your own key. You have your own bedroom with double bed, the bathroom and the entire downstairs open plan living area with kitchen. You can also enjoy the garden with large outside table and bench seating with BBQ. Tea and coffee facilities are provided. I am in the oast house opposite if you need me...

A delightful location in a converted barn in rural England. It was just what we were looking for in a spot close to visit Sissinghurst castle and gardens (about 30 mins by car) Caroline was a delightful host and provided everything we needed. In a relaxed and beautiful spot. Highly recommended.

The barn was wonderful, located in a secluded little area but surrounded by little public walking paths that took you to come cute little pubs and towns! The barn itself was clean and a lovely little space with everything you need!

This is a beautifully appointed place to stay. Friendly host greeted us on arrival and although barn is on owners property, it was very private. Handy for visiting many interesting places in Kent. Good local places to eat and drink! As host explains it can get very muddy, would recommend wellies! Would stay there again, maybe in summer months next time!

A lovely roomy barn with an excellent kitchen and cosy bedrooms. We very much enjoyed exploring the countryside around it and looked forward to returning to our comfy accomodation.

Lovely stay in a very comfortable and cosy barn, great location too - we highly recommend it. We only stayed for three nights, would love to have stayed for longer! So nice and quiet. We only met Caroline on arrival, but she was friendly and helpful. We highly recommend walking to 'Bateman's' - Rudyard Kipling's house outside Burwash, both beautiful and fascinating.

Really beautiful place and in a lovely location. Caroline is super helpful and offered us a warm welcome. The barn is homely and offered everything we needed for a relaxing weekend break from the city.
