This delightful one double bedroom converted barn is located three miles from the picturesque market town of Battle. Nearby attractions include the coastal towns of Bexhill and Hastings. Battle is a town of great historical interest and includes a diverse range of shops, tea rooms and pubs. A nearby ancient woodland provides plenty of opportunity for exploring the countryside. The village station enables convenient travel to Tunbridge Wells- 32 mins, London approx. mins and Hastings coast.

The space

Little Pyes enjoys delightful views across the Sussex countryside towards the coast. The property enjoys a large decking area for you to enjoy the views of the countryside and wildlife including the occasional bird of prey (see photo). There is an open plan living space with a convenient sofa bed for extra guests. A kitchen area with oven and fridge and dining area. The bedroom has a kingsize bed and small bathroom with shower, wash basin and WC.

Guest access

There is separate access to the property shared with our other holiday property 'Pyes Granary' and plenty of parking space. This converted barn sits in the grounds of our home and is separated away from the main house. The area is shared but again separate from the 'Granary' our other 2 bedroom holiday property. This may be useful if wishing to holiday with other family members or friends. 'Little Pyes' has easy access for the less able as there are no stairs leading to the property or within.

Interaction with guests

Although the station is just a seven minute walk away, I am happy to collect guests when they are travelling by train especially in the dark winter evenings! Just message me with your plans so that I can be available to help.

Other things to note

Guests will receive a small welcome pack for their convenience included in the price.
'Little Pye's' is a non smoking venue. No pets. Adults only

There is limited access to the internet here and I do not list the property as having this available but there is a good 4G speed for connections through a smartphone.

We visited battle for a wedding and are so glad we stayed at the barn. We attended a wedding at crowhurst park just two minutes drive from the barn so the location was perfect for us. The barn is lovely and cosy and it has great views. We were grateful for the welcome basket with breakfast essentials which we enjoyed on the veranda. We only stayed one night but would definately return.

Hilary's barn is heaven if you're looking to switch off. The location is wonderful and the inside is as good as you can see in the pictures. It was wonderful to have breakfast in the morning outside on the deck looking at rabbits playing around the garden. Also, Hilary has really good tips on where to go and eat (the welcome pack is wonderful!). Highly recommend!

We had a great stay at Hilary's the setting is beautiful and great location for enjoying the Sussex coast. Bexhill beach was particularly lovely. The barn has everything you need and was a pleasure to deal with Hilary. It was very relaxing and wish we booked longer, but looking forward to our next visit soon!

As well as loving to live in the countryside, I enjoy being able to access the towns, cities and beach. This area has as it all which is what attracted me to this property, plus the convenience of travel from the station made it very accessible for my family members to visit and return to their destinations easily. I enjoy being a host to the guests who stay here. I consider that my guests are generally happy to be left alone for their stay but am always available if they need me for help or advice on where to go etc. Its important to me that my guests enjoy their stay here and welcome any feedback for me to improve the service I provide.
