Starnash Farmhouse

Hailsham, Sussex
Bed & Breakfast

A friendly home with creative hosts – cosy rooms, good food, a convivial feel. Easy to escape from London – just 50 minutes by train


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 6


Come to relax and recharge, perhaps write or paint. Vicky and David love having guests and creating delicious meals from local and home-grown produce; their farmhouse table overlooks the garden, or you can eat outside in the orchard or on the terrace. Bedrooms (one downstairs) are named after birds and have pretty fabrics and garden flowers; hop up more stairs to the attic twin (mind your head in the shower room!). Brighton and Glyndebourne are close; walk the South Downs Way, explore the coast, book one of Vicky’s writer retreats or winter workshops. David is making a shepherd’s hut so you’ll soon be able to sleep under the stars too.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Vicky Radtke

  • With its vast open skies, rolling Downs and the lure of the sea, this part of Sussex has always enticed artists and creative thinkers. The scenery is both soft and stunning and the climate is often gentle.
  • From wild walks to cutting edge cosmopolitan culture, Starnash Farmhouse is uniquely located for access to the very best that Sussex has to offer all year round.
  • From Picasso to Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes, we are at the heart of the inspirational landscape that drew so many great artists, writers and thinkers to this part of the world.
  • Being so close to London and easily accessible to Europe and international airports there is a cultural, cosmopolitan vibe to the county of Sussex. You can have the best of both worlds; stay in the country and nip to Brighton or beyond for urban culture.
  • We host wonderful Off-the-Beaten-Track Workshops and Days Out throughout the winter, as well as Pop-Up Restaurants. Have a look at our website for more details and bookings.
  • For writers, artists and other creative souls, we will treat you to a place of sanctuary and nurture to suit your unique requirements. have a look at our website and just get in touch to arrange a special stay that will suit you.
