We are great Downton Abbey fans and we live in a converted barn which is part of Downoak Farm. Not surprisingly we have called our recently modernised studio Downoak Abbey (Lodge)!

Downoak Abbey Lodge provides self-catering accommodation for two with beautiful views over fields & woods in a peaceful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Direct access onto the 1066 Country Walk. The 30 m2, high-ceilinged, bright self-contained lodge comes equipped with a modern luxury kitchenette and a fabulous large modern shower room, with wooden floors throughout. Private deck and parking space.

Downoak Abbey Lodge is ideal for couples who want a relaxing break in the countryside, and within easy reach of historical attractions, Battle, Bodiam, Rye and Hastings town centre.

Although Downoak Abbey Lodge shares a courtyard with the main house, guests can expect complete privacy as the Lodge has its own entrance. There is also a deck and a private garden for guests.

Hastings, Sussex

Westfield is a rural parish in Rother District, in the county of East Sussex, situated approximately 6 miles north of the ancient coastal town of Hastings. The village lies on the A28 in an area of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by farmland and the hills, woods and streams of the Weald. The area is a popular one for visitors with nearby historic towns of Battle and Rye, beautiful country parks, accessible seashores, and a great network of public footpaths.

There are just over one thousand households in the parish and the population, recorded in the 2011 census, was 2,583, 25% of which are over 65. Westfield has a small number of shops: a prize-winning butcher's (which has traded since 1935), a local store, a newsagent's, hairdresser's, beautician's, an award-winning restaurant and a motor retailer. The village has two old pubs and a very popular primary school for around 200 pupils. Also within the parish is the celebrated Carr-Taylor vineyard and a business park for around a dozen small rural enterprises. For more information visit our business directory.

Many community groups and societies serve the recreational life of residents; see our “Community” pages. Westfield Football club plays in the Sussex County League Division Two and our Cricket Team plays in East Sussex Cricket League Division Twelve. The village is also renowned for its amazing annual display of Christmas lights which raises funds for the local hospice.

Westfield is an old Sussex village. It certainly existed before the Norman conquest and is listed in the Domesday book as Westewelle. Whether this was its ancient name or perhaps an error by a scribe is a matter of dispute. The oldest building in the village is probably the picturesque church of St John the Baptist with its massively buttressed medieval tower.

"An absolutely fantastic place to stay"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You could hear a pin drop it was so quiet, we had the pleasure of Hetty's company, enjoyed sitting outside looking across the fields for miles. There was everything you could wish for, will definitely go back. Thanks to Nat and Simon for their very warm welcome.

Thank you very much for such a nice review. Hetty sent her best wishes. We hope to be hosting you again in the near future.
