The Milking Parlour is the perfect retreat for a couple or two; find an airy living room, a private patio for sunny breakfasts, comfortable bedrooms with views over the South Downs and goose-down-topped beds to sink into after a day walking or cycling – footpaths leave from the door. Sandra loves welcoming guests and is on hand at the barn should you need anything. She leaves you a generous hamper with supplies for a continental breakfast – look forward to homemade organic bread, homemade granola and good coffee. On summer evenings, head straight out across fields to The Cock Inn for great food and local Harvey’s beer. You’ll find lots of great gardens and festivals to dip into at Glyndebourne (a few minutes’ drive) or head to Lewes for independent shops and cafés. The coast is within easy reach.
