A Byre, is an Old English word for a 'cowshed' and thankfully this 16th Century building has been beautifully converted into a cozy getaway for lone travelers or couples, looking to escape the hustle and bustle of every day life. The Byre is full of character with its beamed ceiling (and one you will have to duck under), old wooden floors and cozy interior but offers you everything you need for a few day away from it all in the beautiful Sussex countryside

The space
The Byre is a cozy, and dare we say, romantic getaway for those looking for a little rest and relaxation. There is an Inglenook fireplace and woodburner for those chilly evenings, or a beautifully planted patio area to sit out and enjoy the sound of the summer.
With many of the original beams still in place, wooden floors, and a Inglenook with woodburner to keep you warm on those chilly evenings.
Not forgetting Luxury Eygptian 100 % cotton bed linen, Dolce Gusto coffee machine and Amazon Alexa for those extra touches
There is a shower room with an electric shower. The bedrooms has built-in wardrobes.

The Byre is located within the grounds of the Grade II listed Thornden Farm, and nestled in 12 acres of the 1066 countryside. The Byre is just one of many of the farm's original outbuildings which have been lovingly restored to provide holiday accommodation.

Where you’ll be

East Sussex, England, United Kingdom

The historic town of Battle is just a ten minute drive away, with it's Abbey dating back to the 13th Century and a fabulous selection of boutiques and independent shops.

Within a five minute drive in either direction, you will discover two country pubs, with outdoor areas, children's menus and local beers. Just 45 minutes away is the town of Tunbridge Wells and The Pantiles - an open air promenade of Georgian shop buildings. Of course, the Sussex Coast is just a 15 minute drive with Bexhill, Eastbourne, Hastings and the beautiful town of Rye, just waiting to be discovered. The Byre offers a hidden haven for those seeking the tranquility of rural Sussex, the fresh salty air of the sea, or just an escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
