Charming cottage, we booked both the Barn and Tea Hut for our parents to stay with use, which work really well. Lovely quiet location, which was very relaxing, we made use of the tennis court and had a pottery lesson which was fab. Lots to do in the area, would highly recommend.

Medleys Barn is a beautiful place to stay and a perfect base for exploring the area or just staying put and unwinding. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and well-equipped, and we managed to revive our tennis skills!

Medley's Barn is in a beautiful location. It is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and tastefully furnished. It provides everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. The hosts are helpful, friendly and welcoming. Great place for a relaxing break!

A lovely barn in the middle of the country, beautiful view. Good location for trips to the coast and towns and walks.

A lovely property, clean & beautifully decorated. The tennis court was a huge bonus & even thought it rained for most of the week we managed to get some play in when the sun briefly peaked out from behind the clouds. Lots to do in the area & the dogs loved it too!

A fantastic venue within an easy drive of Glyndebourne. Quiet location and super facilities provided a relaxing stay

Good central location to visit lots of attractions. We had a great week

We had a wonderful time at Medleys Barn. It is set in a beautiful location, with endless things to do in the vicinity: walking, steam trains, stately homes, beautiful gardens, zoos and more. The house itself is lovely and very well equipped: it was rather hot upstairs but this was during the heatwave, and Sophie thoughtfully provided a fan and a big bag of ice for our stay. The children loved their room and the tennis court, and we all enjoyed meeting Beetle the dog! There was a plumbing issue during our stay and Sophie, despite being on holiday herself, got it sorted extremely promptly. We would all highly recommend the Barn!

So this was our third visit in 14 months. Need I say more. Beautiful barn, perfect setting, lovely hosts. Already booking for next year!!

This is our second visit to Medleys and won’t be our last. We absolutely love it. The barn is spacious and light and if you like tennis / pottery and peace and quiet of the countryside then it’s perfect. Sophie and Charlie are lovely hosts living on site but leaving you total privacy. The area is lovely and local amenities easy to reach. We love it. I am hoping the nice review doesn’t mean we can’t book next year!!

Medleys Barn is extremely comfortable and the location is beautiful and peaceful. The furnishings are stylish and the kitchen is well equipped. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed at Medley's Barn twice now and would definitely book again.

Lovely cottage and warm hosts - would definitely stay there again.

Great location for a quiet countryside weekend away, yet a close enough drive to the beach for a day out We felt very welcomed at the Barn and can recommend the pottery

Lovely peaceful location, lots of acres to roam in with dogs, cosy barn, comfy beds, lovely pub close by, loved it!! Friendly owners

Comfortable stay, lbig living area to spread out in. Easy access to local footpaths. Helpful owner. Enjoyable pottery session!

We loved the cottage, it was so quiet, beautiful, quirky and comfortable. The tennis court was amazing and the outlook over the trees and fields was beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Sophie and Charlie were fab. Especially loved our pottery session. Hoping we can book for next year!

Medley’s Barn is both picturesque and comfortable in a peaceful and beautiful countryside location. It has every facility you could wish for and is immaculately clean and well presented, with a lovely homely feel. Sophie was a perfect host, extremely helpful but not intrusive. My pottery lesson was a particular highlight; great fun. I would unreservedly recommend this property.

Medley Barn is a perfectly equipped, comfortable and very relaxing place to stay. A lovely little welcome pack was awaiting us too. It has absolutely everything you could need for your stay, that is if you didn't want to eat out int he many great eateries around! The whole barn is so well heated. We couldn't fault it. Sophie was an excellent host, who greeted us shortly after our arrival and was so helpful about local information, and really accommodating with ensuring we had all we needed, even brought us ice from her freezer! Would 100% recommend it and Classic Cottages to friends and family.

A charming barn conversion, Medleys barn made the perfect place for our quiet 2020 Christmas. Amazingly well equipped, it is warm and cosy with many extra touches that make it feel so homely. A truly stunning location and very welcoming hosts.

So lucky to find Medley’s Barn which has everything we needed for our stay – the warm and spacious rooms, the fully equipped kitchen, the surrounding nature, and the wonderful owner! The pottery workshop with the owner was the real treat for us – highly recommended! Can’t wait to return to this place in the future.

We absolutely loved our stay at Medleys Barn. The barn was beautiful, it felt like home from home the moment we walked in! Perfect location with 2 lovely pubs a short distance from the barn. The owners were friendly and helpful and there is no doubt that we will return! Thanks again for our wonderful stay.

Wonderful few days break, friendly owners, beautiful area, all comforts- plus!

Sophie was an excellent host and communicated well with us without being bothersome. Her and her partner were very friendly and keen to help with anything we needed including any running repairs or local information. A thoroughly enjoyable stay in West Sussex and we'd recommend their beautiful cottage to friends and family alike.
