Formerly a grain store, the property has been cleverly designed to provide charming accommodation, perfect for a couple, solo traveller or small family and their dog to explore the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearby is the pretty village of Sedlescombe (1 mile) with its popular local pub and village shop. The area is known as 1066 Country, and the historic town of Battle (3 miles) is home to an abbey and the battlefield where the infamous Battle of Hastings took place. Just 7 miles away, the Victorian seaside town of Hastings boasts a RIBA architectural awarding-winning pier that holds many events throughout the year and the charming ‘old town’ is the historic heart of town, which retains a working fishing fleet. Neighbouring St Leonards has become a trendy enclave with many interesting and independent shops, restaurants and bars to explore. With lovely stately homes and formal gardens in the area open to the public, you’ll certainly never run out of things to do.

This unusual escape is a cottage full of curves and personality. The king-sized bedroom can be found on the ground floor, alongside a shower room and laundry room. Upstairs, a spacious open-plan living space has four windows with lovely countryside views and comes well-appointed with a double sofa bed, additional cosy seating, and a TV. A dining table with seating for four sits in the corner and the fully-equipped kitchen has plenty of storage space with everything needed to dine at home. A bathroom completes the first-floor layout.

The property is situated next to a private airfield, so you can sit out on the patio, and watch the occasional light aircraft come and go. Relax in the peace and tranquillity of this lovely rural setting whilst enjoying a home-cooked meal or sundowner.

A really lovely property with plenty of room & well equipped. Enjoyed watching the planes landing & taking off from the airstripat the rear of the property. It was great for our elderly dog with lots of short walks for him. Nestled in beautiful surroundings. Lots of nearby places to visit, Old Hastings, Battle, Rye to name but a few. Will definitelRead morey be making a return visit. Hide

The Corn Bin was let down by poor cleanliness especially in the kitchen area. Needs a deep clean and update. Basics such as exiting electric gate on departure day need to be sorted. Shame as it has such potential as a quirky place to stay. It was comfy and cosy on the plus side but sadly the neglected feel of the place spoils the experience.

A lovely unique stay. Garden is not enclosed for dogs but that is a small point. Very peaceful. Lovely to stroke the horses. Too wet for the long walks but great countryside.

Lovely place and peaceful even the odd private small aircraft didnt spoil the peacefulness. Nice to be able to walk straight from property with dog. Be aware that there are a lot of wild rabbits and some of the fields have sheep. Courtyard not dog secure. Property is spacious and comfortable.

If you are looking for something a little quirky the Corn Bin fits the bill. Set in beautiful country side with lots of walks for the dog. The planes really do not bother you so it is very peaceful. Ideal for exploring the history associated with East Sussex. Lots of farm shop around for the excellent Sussex cheese and apple juice. Fridays there iRead mores a farmers market at nearby by Brede. Our only slight negative was the size of the towels.. but too small! Hide

After an initial problem with the cottage not being ready for us on our arrival well after 5 pm we were very happy with the accommodation. We received first class assistance from Sophie (who I believe may have a connection with the cottage) so overall our stay was very good.
