Barn
Tucked under the gentle slopes of the South Downs on a quiet lane sits a flint barn in the quintessential English hamlet of Folkington. Its beauty is in its timeless quality, tranquility, bird song and visual splendour. It offers a true escape from a fast paced world. The village road itself stops at a medieval church and only farm tracks and footpaths climb the swelling curves of these hills. Folkington Barn sits within its own cottage garden full of flowers and bird song and is a garden lovers paradise.

The gardens surrounding the owners cottage and the barn have in fact been featured in ‘The Garden’ ,Journal Of The Royal Horticultural Society 1997 . ”The style of planting is in its modern cottage garden manner . Shrubs ,roses,perennials,annuals and bulbs are used together to weave an intricate embroidery of colour,form and texture which gives it an almost haphazard impression,yet can be achieved only by a dedicated and knowledgeable Gardner of great taste. “ Mark Rumary . The Barns spacious vaulted living area invites you in to its colourful bohemian interior .The utilities are separate as well as the bedroom and we have added a single sofa bed in the lounge. Comfort and style have been woven into the fabric of this building from its handmade oak bed adhorned with fine French linen to its luxury little extras . More

About the neighbourhood
Folkington Barns unique position not only offers the opportunity to explore and escape amidst its stunning rural vistas,it is also a hive of fascinating history and culture. It is the home of Bloomsbury,Charleston Farmhouse at Firle and Virginia Woolf’s Monk’s House in Rodmell are a stones throw away. The County Town of Lewes,its castle,Anne of Cleves House,restaurants and cafes is certainly a gem well worth a visit. Alfriston is a charming village offering a wealth of fine dining and quirky shops. The seaside towns of Brighton,Eastbourne,Seaford,Bexhill,Hastings and Rye are all very different.
Getting around
Nearest station 5 minute by car( taxi ) Polegate mainline to London Victoria . Direct access from Weald Way and South Downs National Park on foot or bicycle.
