South Barn at Pickeridge is tucked away on a 120 acre working farm in a secluded valley between West Hoathly and Ardingly. It's the perfect retreat for families and friends looking to holiday in a peaceful location but in an area close to the many attractions that Sussex has to offer.

Newly converted and eco-friendly, this semi-detached modern barn offers a spacious and contemporary living space with a wonderful open plan kitchen, dining and living area which is very sociable.

There are three bedrooms. On the ground floor is a spacious family room featuring a comfortable king-size double bed. There is also a single bed and an en suite bathroom with bath and shower cubicle. This room has double doors that open onto a terrace and garden.

There is an additional ground floor shower-room and upstairs are two twin bedrooms which enjoy countryside views.

A separate garden off the sitting-area is perfect for guests with pets. On warmer days, open the doors to welcome the outside in and enjoy al fresco dining or breakfast on the patio whilst you take in the sounds of mother nature.

Outside and above the workshop is a fitness-room shared with the owners. There is a rowing-machine and yoga mats with blocks for general use and the Peloton bike (please bring your own shoes) and weights are available on request (used at own risk). This area is available on a rota basis. You can workout whilst taking in the views over the surrounding countryside.

South Barn at Pickeridge is directly next door to Pickeridge Barn (5216) and North Barn at Pickeridge (5215). Pickeridge Barn has a large living area/event space that is positioned between South Barn and North Barn and is perfect for guests wanting to host multi-family, multi-generational getaways or for friends to organise their own yoga, wellness and nature retreats. The owners can help guests find local chefs or yoga teachers for those wanting a celebration meal or some wellness activities for their holiday. These can be discussed and booked with the owner. If both South Barn and North Barn are booked together (Pickeridge Barn) the entire property can accommodate up to 13 guests.

In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (High Weald) the area is a paradise for walkers with a public footpath that runs through the farm which is part of the High Weald Landscape Trail where you can enjoy walks through meadows, ancient woodlands and bluebell woods. You can also walk to local villages and the local pub, The Cat Inn or the Missing Link Brewery to sample some Sussex Ale.

Although you are tucked away in a rural location, the barn is perfect for exploring Sussex as well as London with direct train connections from Haywards Heath. The barn is within a reasonable distance of the South Downs National Park and close to Ashdown Forest, home of Winnie-the-Pooh Country, Pooh Bridge and The Hundred Acre Wood.

Only a few miles away is the South of England Showground, a popular venue for agricultural events and antiques fairs. Go kayaking and enjoy water sports at Ardingly Reservoir (Ardingly Activity Centre) or Horse Racing at Lingfield Park.

Sussex is blessed with numerous attractions. Step aboard the Bluebell Railway whilst taking in the views of the Sussex countryside. Visit the Bluebell Vineyard Estates which is an award-winning vineyard and winery on the edge of the Ashdown Forest. Visit Wakehurst, Kew's wild botanic garden and home to the Millennium Seed Bank. Or there is Standen House and Garden, an Arts and Crafts house just south of East Grinstead and the beautiful Nymans Botanical Garden set around a romantic house and ruins. Sheffield Park Gardens, where you will find many rare shrubs and trees and Borde Hill, a beautiful English Heritage Grade II Listed garden set within 200 acres of scenic parkland, are also well worth a visit.

However you plan to spend your time, South Barn at Pickeridge is the perfect base for your Sussex adventure.
