Beaufort Barn is a luxury hideaway tucked away in the peaceful foothills of the South Downs. Enjoy stunning views of the rolling Sussex countryside from every angle of the immaculately-appointed interiors and relish living a slower pace of life – perfect for families or couples looking to relax, recharge and make memories amidst nature's beauty.
Inside, the open-plan living space evokes a warm and inviting atmosphere with natural wooden flooring, tonal furnishings and underfloor heating. The modern shaker kitchen is fully equipped to prepare delicious meals for the grand dining table, while the feature breakfast bar presents the ideal spot to savour those morning essentials of a hot coffee and a hearty start to the day.
In the winter months, sumptuous sofas huddle around the wood-burning fire; a cosy nook to curl up with a book, play board games or plan your next ramble across the Downs. When the sun is shining, the outside terrace makes a tranquil spot for al fresco dining, and the enveloping open gardens provide an exciting place for little ones to explore. Muddy boots can be washed down and stored in the handy utility room equipped with butler sink, boot rack and WC.
Whether you're planning on making the most of the outdoors with the abundance of walks on your doorstep, or desiring nothing but rest and relaxation, you're guaranteed a restful night's slumber in one of the three comfortable bedrooms – a master zip-link super king with en-suite shower, Bedroom Two with a king-size and Bedroom Three with versatile zip-link twin beds, the latter two sharing the luxurious family bath/walk-in shower room. All with quality hotel-standard beds, crisp white bed linen and plenty of space for suitcases, you'll wake up feeling restored and ready for another day.
The Master and Bedroom Three both offer zip-link beds, meaning they can be configured as either a super king or twin singles for added flexibility. This property also offers the facility for electric vehicle (EV) charging for a small daily fee.
