The Experience

Approach down a leafy no-through road from little Punnetts Town. The farm is on the left, the granary is ahead, and the pastureland stretches for miles. Graham has done a great job on this 1820s barn, and Sarah’s garden is wonderful to roam.

Enter a big, comfortable, first-floor space filled with light and views. Below is a place for garden furniture, games, dogs and muddy wellies. You can stroll to the village shop for coffee or pull on your boots and set off for Bateman’s – Kipling’s former home. The countryside is gorgeous and you can be there in two hours. The area is also full of National Trust houses, and some of the best gardens in the country… Sissinghurst and Great Dixter are 20 miles. Young families could spend the day at Pevensey Bay, an easy half-hour drive.

Then it’s home to ducks on the pond, wagtails on the lawn, squirrels, birdsong and dozens of deer.

We loved our stay here. The accommodation was immaculate, COVID-19 prepared, and very well stocked (the kitchen had better utensils than our own home). Sarah and Graham are welcoming, friendly and helpful while respecting your privacy. The air is fresh, garden is lovely and each morning and evening we watched wild deer grazing nearby. The surrounding area has plenty to see and do; 500 year old local pubs have excellent cuisine (Middle House in Mayfield), Cuculo an Italian Deli in Heathfield is also great, many castles and gardens to visit (Herstmonceux, Bateman's) and the coast nearby.

Giles, London

Best place i have ever stayed would definitively stay here and also would recommend it. It has a lovely garden, very comfy beds, good wifi, very nice walks as well in the countryside and the people who own it are very nice and helpful.

Arthur, London

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).

Farid, London

Lovely situation, peaceful, well marked footpaths walks from the house in woods and fields, ideal for dogs , Granary well appointed and comfortable, nice welcome pack including homemade bread.Plenty of local information and maps very helpful. Enjoyed exploring variety of houses ,gardens and castles within 40 mins drive as well as walking on the South Downs Way, good visit to Rye and salt marshes too.

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.

Jane, Oxford

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.


Delightfully scenic and peaceful location. High specification, well equipped granary conversion with a very comfortable bed! .Sarah made us very welcome and was always willing to answer any questions during our stay.

The neighbourhood

In this unusually rural corner of south east England, the nearest shopping is in the villages of Rushlake Green (two miles) and Heathfield (four miles). The local pub is one mile: the Three Cups Inn, cosy, family-friendly, and offering 20% off to Granary guests. There's walking for miles from the door, through ancient woodland and forestry, and you can walk or cycle the lovely Cuckoo Trail, a disused railway line that runs for 11 miles (good for all ages).

Local points of interest from Graham & Sarah Hutton

  • Welcome goodies include 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
  • Several golf courses nearby including the East Sussex National, Wellshurst and the very friendly local Horam Golf Club.
  • 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.
  • A day out at the famous Camber Sands? Or a quick trip to the beach at Pevensey Bay?


Graham & Sarah Hutton

Sarah and Graham pay great attention to their guests, their dogs, and their wildlife garden. Sarah will happily collect you from the end of a long walk and cook you an evening meal. Graham can arrange introductions to paragliding and, at quiet times of the year, show you around his arable farm that lies close by.
