The Hay Barn (sleeps 4/5) and The Apple Press (sleeps 4) are two holiday cottages set within 50 acres of beautiful Sussex countryside. They are available to rent individually or together. The cottages are both peaceful, private retreats with lovely views and direct access to walks through the fields and footpaths. They are also the perfect base to explore the villages, towns, coast and National Trust houses that are dotted throughout the nearby area. Nearby are the picturesque villages of Burwash (home to Rudyard Kipling), Ticehurst, Wadhurst and Mayfield. Stonegate Station is 3 miles away with direct trains to London in around an hour.
