Feel the tranquillity fold around you as you relax in absolute peace and quiet. Yours is serenity, in the soaring beams and floods of sunlight, your mezzanine nook and sun-drenched patio. Welcome to your Sussex sanctuary.
When you pass the oast house set in serene woodlands, you know you’re on the way to somewhere special. Draw up outside this majestic thatched barn in a haven of absolute peace and quiet and you know you were right. Step inside and allow your breath to catch just ever so slightly as you take in the lofty beams rising high above you. Yes, this is it, your Sussex sanctuary.
Beautifully-restored, Strawberry Hole Barn offers supreme comfort in the most stunning surroundings. The living room stretching far and wide is flooded with Sussex sunlight streaming in through floor-to-ceiling windows along the length of an entire wall. Beams soar above you adding a cathedral air to this charming space. Sit back on the pristine white settees next to the feature wood stove to really take it all in.
The upper floor, accessible via a double staircase, leads to a quirky but restful mezzanine nook. The perfect spot for reading or listening to music. And then to the pretty bedrooms, beamed and under the eaves where pretty country quilts lie atop king size beds.
Flow outside into the private patio where a water feature provides a harmonious soundtrack and the southern orientation ensures sun-drenched relaxation. Create a little something on the barbeque outside or in the fully-equipped rustic kitchen inside.
And then venture beyond your patio to explore the private grounds and woodlands, acres of them, and all yours to enjoy. And if you’re visiting during the warmer months, arrange usage of the private pool. Go a little further and you reach some of the loveliest gardens in the land. Those at Great Dixter are walkable and others such as Pashley Manor and Scotney Castle are also nearby.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Two generously sized bedrooms, both with king size beds, sleep 4 people. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom, one with walk-in shower and the other with bath/shower. There’s also a handy cloakroom downstairs.

Beautiful property, our second visit, I am sure there will be a third.Jeremy Oldham - 23rd September 2018
This a superb property in a fantastic location.The owner,is extremely welcoming and friendly. I cannot recommend Strawberry Hole Barn highly enough. This is the first time we have visited Sussex and we found lots of things that interest us. Finding local villages with interesting shops and tea rooms is the sort of thing we like and these abound in this county. We will certainly visit again in the future. Mr Terence Turner - 26th August 2018
Beautiful barn conversion in an idyllic setting. Very well equipped and comfortable, with lots of interesting decor throughout the house. The owner is a very welcoming and friendly host. We’d certainly stay there again and would happily recommend it to others.Mr David Hussey - 9th October 2017

Exceptional property.Ms A Brady - 4th January 2017

This is definitely a top quality property. we just cannot fault it. Beautiful Barn in a great setting, everything you could wish for by way of equipment. The owner was most helpful and extremely pleasant. I don't wonder it is difficult to re-book, everyone wants to go back.Mrs P Preston - 6th May 2016

Thank you for our wonderful stay! Such a beautiful barn. We will be back as it is so nice here, but I am not sure if we will be able to get in as all my friends want to come too! It is the most amazing place and it was lovely to be able to sit outside and listen to the birds A+++ See you again.Lisa and Vinnie - 9th October 2015
What a fabulous Barn - such a sympathetic conversion. Impressive yet so comfortable. And all mod cons - eat your heart out Landmark Trust!.

the barn is amazing! The Oast Houses and gardens are beautiful. We have had a lovely week, the weather has been kind.

We really hope to visit again.Sturgess Family - 21st August 2015

This was our second stay at Strawberry Hole Barn and again we spent lovely days here. Our parents enjoyed walking through the woods and the boys swimming in the pool. Thank you very much.Familie Weihe - 31st July 2015
The barn is a fantastic place to stay. Sue made us feel very welcome. A great location for visiting various National Trust properties such as Batemans, Sissinghurst and Scotney Castle which is a true fairytale castle! Also English Heritage sites like Bayham Abbey, St Augustines, Battle Abbey and further afield Dover Castle. In fact too many to list!. As other comments - The White Dog at Ewehurst Green serves excellent food (with a dog friendly bar). Fish & Chips from Rose's Grill & Fry Pevensey Bay - then a 2 minute walk to the beach to eat them is a must! We will definitely be returning to stay - a week just isn't enough!!Family Field - 17th July 2015
