A Luxury Forest Retreat


“If you go down in the woods today you can be sure of a enchanting surprise....Priors Barn” Quiet elegance set within woodlands complete with lake, a little gurgling stream winding through the trees and stunning treetop decking offering peace and tranquility, broken only by bird song. On the southern edge of the Ashdown Forest in the tiny hamlet of Maresfield lies this unique holiday destination from which to explore the endless delights of the surrounding area. Glyndebourne, the world famous Opera House and a variety of National Trust and English Heritage properties and glorious gardens along with an abundance of outdoor pursuits are all within easy reach walking, cycling, horse riding and for a leisurely round of golf, the Championship East Sussex Golf Club is just up the road. Should you fancy a spot of fishing (permit required) you may be lucky enough to catch a trout on the River Ouse, reputed to have the heaviest weight trout on any English river! Alternatively the nearby County town of Lewes, offers an assortment of speciality shops and a direct train service to London for a night out on the town - when you have had enough country air! To say Priors Barn is perfect for couples isn’t to imply that it’s small; it’s more to do with feel than floor space. The Barn has been creatively and thoughtfully converted to combine traditional style with modern comfort. Awash with golden oak flooring, contrasting noir beams and splashes of warm red the open plan interior is comfortable and inviting with an extremely well equipped kitchen. The chic double bedroom is a delight with French doors opening onto a cute patio, ideal for “breakfast ’a deux”, and the sizable en-suite shower room boasts a double cubicle. The separate utility/launder room also provides excellent storage space for suitcases and of course those muddy walking boots, should it rain!! And now for the “pièce de résistance” of Priors Barn - the tree decking. Suspended above a stream this is the ideal spot for a glass of chilled wine whilst you barbecue supper, and then enjoy after dinner coffee on a balmy summer evening.
Truly 4 Star Gold Award Accommodation.

Priors Barn was located in a peaceful location in a quiet lane in Maresfield. The barn was beautifully presented and equipped to a very high standard although some of the equipment was, perhaps, too high-end compared to what would normally be expected. This is of course reflected in the price and hopefully attracts clients who, like us, really appreciate the quality. The bed was very comfortable. All in all a very good experience. - SB England
