Greenwood Granary

Heathfield, Sussex

Deeply rural, surrounded by woods and pastureland. Fabulous views, open-plan space, room for dogs, and the coast a 20-minute drive


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


The guest book overflows with praise – for the solid restoration, the deeply rural setting, Sarah’s homemade goodies (especially the bread), the garden (all yours, with fabulous views), and ‘Twiggy’ the deer that drops by. Approach down a leafy no-through road just outside little Punnetts Town; the farm is ahead, the granary on the left and woods and pastureland enfold you. Graham the owner has done a superb job on this 1820s barn, restoring the exposed beams and rafters and the first-floor block and tackle, then adding floors and doors from locally sourced oak, top-range kitchen appliances and a generous walk-in shower. It’s a big, welcoming first-floor space, open-plan and with wonderful views, reached via a slip-proof outside stair. A ground-floor room is dedicated to garden furniture and games, space for dogs and muddy wellies, and extra wc. Spend the day exploring the castles of Bodiam and Pevensey, the gardens of Sissinghurst and Charleston, and the coast, a 20-minute drive. Glyndebourne is close too. Come home to music, wide beds and deep sofas, a furnished patio and a brilliant run-around garden.

My family had a great stay. Lovely place, very nicely furnished, with lots of local info, games and books for all ages. The setting is great, on a farm, accessed via a long path through the woods, with beautiful grounds and views, while still being very accessible and a short drive to several villages and pubs. Fun woodland walks directly from the gate. Sarah and her family were very friendly and helpful they have friendly animals (horse and 2 dogs).

Bridget, Bristol

A really delightful, comfortable and very well appointed property with truly wonderful views over a secluded wooded valley. Excellent location for visiting this delightful area of East Sussex. We will almost certainly want to stay there again.

Simon, Hertfordshire

A wonderfully peaceful location. The Granary is superbly comfortable. Everything has been thoughtfully considered and supplied for a home from home stay.

Beautiful, peaceful location. The barn is spacious, bright and airy and has everything you may wish for. Our 8th month old son loved it! We hope to come back.

  • Welcome hamper includes home baked bread and a bottle of chilled fizzy wine!Lovely walks across country to ancient pubs serving delicious food
  • Local Farmers' Markets most weekends
  • The Granary works really well for couples as well as with one or two young children. A game of Pooh Sticks in the wood rarely fails to please.
  • Come and see the carpets of bluebells in the Spring. Feel free to explore the garden and enjoy the views and ponds.
  • Walk to Batemans, the home of Rudyard Kipling and enjoy a well deserved lunch or cream tea when you get there.
  • Monday night at the local pub - half price dinner for ladies!
