Parking can be found opposite this driveway (two car spaces) between the trees - do not continue to the end of the lane as it is difficult to turn around.

Location description from owner

The England region

From tranquil gardens to the steep ascent of the South Downs, the East Sussex countryside has much to offer.

The bridleways of the South Downs offer some of the best off-road cycling in the country. You can also cycle in most woods owned by the Forestry Commission. Find out about these and other ideas for cycling in the county.

East Sussex has 3,200 kms of footpaths, bridleways and byways.

The spectacular coastline includes beauty spot Seven Sisters and the cliffs of Beachy Head. There are many scenic fishing villages and coastal towns to visit.



Icklesham

Icklesham village is located approximately six miles east of Hastings on the A259, Hastings to Rye Road. The village has several public houses. The church is dedicated to All Saints and St Nicolas and dates back to the 12th century.

Icklesham stands on the ridge between the coast and river Brede, offering views to the hills at Fairlight to the south and the Brede valley on the other side. The name Icklesham (which was possibly derived from Anglo Saxon – Iclingas Ham the home of the Iclas family) was recorded in 772 as Icoleshamme, in a land charter signed by Offa, King of Mercia. The village was probably a prime target during the invasion by the Normans in 1066 as in earlier times it dominated the river Brede. This strategic importance led, some seven hundred years later to evacuation plans being drawn up in case of invasion by Napoleon.

The area is popular throughout the year with walkers and ornithologists due to several well-known nature reserves at Dungeness and Rye Harbour, and a number of way-marked walks including the 1066 Country Walk, plus a very dramatic local coastline featuring stunning cliff top walks to Hastings, shingle beaches at Pett Level and Winchelsea Beach, and further east the vast sand and dunes of Camber. Once you have blown the cobwebs away there are plenty of good tea shops, pubs and restaurants in nearby Rye to end your day with a smile. For steam engine enthusiasts there is the Kent & East Sussex Railway at Tenterden, and along the Kent coast the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway with it's smaller engines and carriages.

There is an old smock windmill on Hogs Hill which has been restored and used as a recording studio by Sir Paul McCartney. The 1066 walk (which runs from Pevensey to Rye via Battle) goes through the village.
Winchelsea is a beautiful Sussex village built on the bones of a medieval town. It is a hidden delight for visitors to discover, but also home to an active community.

Winchelsea the Medieval Town

Seven centuries ago, the new town of Winchelsea was founded by Edward I to take the place of an older town of the same name, which had been lost to the sea in a series of great storms and now lies beneath the waters of Rye Bay. New Winchelsea swiftly rose to become one of the major ports of the kingdom and was recognised as such when the title of Ancient Town and status of Head Port were conferred by the Cinque Port Confederation, the medieval alliance of Kent and Sussex ports that provided ships to the Crown in the days before a royal navy. However, the prosperity of New Winchelsea was gradually sapped by the silting of its harbour, disasters such as war and competition from other ports. By the middle of the 16th century, Winchelsea had been left high and dry.
Modern village

Today, Winchelsea sits quietly on its hill, gazing across marshland at the now-distant sea: one of Kipling's ports of stranded pride. But all around the village are the evocative remnants of past glory: the Church of St Thomas the Martyr; three medieval gates standing guard against long-departed foes; and beneath the broad streets, the hidden wine cellars of the old port town.

For sporting activities there are several local golf clubs, a water sports centre, kite surfing, fishing and tennis – all a short drive away. Of course the sandy beaches of Camber and pebbles of Winchelsea Beach will keep children busy for hours and during the winter these are lovely places to walk and enjoy the fresh sea air. Other nearby attractions include the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, and the Kent and Sussex Railway – both of them premier steam railways, enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Also a short drive away is the Chapel Down Vineyard – home to England’s premium wine producer and well worth a visit. With tours and wine tasting available as well as the stunning ‘Richard Phillips’ restaurant it is a lovely destination for a full day out.

For the garden enthusiast Kent and East Sussex have many wonderful gardens to visit and many an hour can be spent discovering these and enjoying homemade tea and cakes in their tea rooms. Hole Park in Rolvenden, Great Dixter in Northiam and the famous Sissinghurst Castle Gardens in Sissinghurst are just three examples.
Not far from Rye is another of the famous Cinque Ports: Hastings. Today, Hastings Old Town is a charming mix of half-timbered houses, narrow streets and passageways, known locally as ‘twittens’. Hastings is also home to the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe. At low tide the remains of the Dutch East Indiaman ‘Amsterdam’ wrecked in 1749 can be seen, and as in Rye, in the 18th Century smugglers stored contraband goods in hidey holes throughout Hastings Old Town. Popular family attractions in the Old Town are the Blue Reef Aquarium, Fishermen’s Museum and Shipwreck Museum.

Further afield is the medieval city of Canterbury. Visitors who take the time to walk the maze of intriguing side streets will find a rewarding variety of interesting buildings, shops, pubs and cafes. Of course the City is dominated by its famous cathedral whose history goes back to 597 AD; it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must for any visit to Canterbury.

For those wishing to make a day trip to France, there are choices: a Eurostar train from Ashford, a Eurotunnel train from Folkestone, a ferry from Dover or a plane from Lydd Airport. Just don’t forget to pack your passport!

“Quiet and Cosy”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2016

Needed a place to stay whilst visiting my sister who lives about a hundred yards away, so this was perfect for location. The annexe itself was warm, cosy and comfortable. I like peace and quiet and this was indeed both very peaceful and quiet - dark too, with no lampposts or other annoying light. The kitchen was basic with just a small, Baby Belling type of cooker. The rooms were furnished comfortably and the shower was adequate. But best of all was the quietness - perfect for a relaxing weekend and as a base for walking.

“Relaxing and enjoyable”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

This is just what we were looking for : a quiet retreat yet near enough to places of interest or shops. We have enjoyed most places we have stayed but we have a rather small list of places we would really like to return to and Parsonage Barn annexe is definitely on it. The accommodation though compact is surprisingly spacious and everything you might need is provided (with the exception of a full size cooker - but I managed perfectly well with the small oven and microwave - and who wants to cook full meals everyday on holiday?!) There are excellent places to eat nearby. We found everything clean and bright and our hosts really welcoming and friendly. The Annexe is right on the 1066 trail which suited our Norfolk terrier perfectly as he hates traffic and there are lovely views across the valley as you step out of the door. We are already planning to return in the Autumn.

“Relaxing getaway”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2012

Loved the cottage; not huge but very comfy. Very small kitchen, but we already knew that, OK for snacks, not for serious cooking. Enjoyed staying opposite the Livery stables with beautiful horses, friendly dogs and a few chickens pottering around. Watched a lot of the Olympics on a Sky tv. Fantastic pub, Queens Head, less than 5 mins walk down the lane. Wonderful area for walking, lots of footpaths. Also lovely to visit Rye which is beautiful and has retained its old world charm. Will go again.

“perfect romantic break”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

beautiful and clean accomadation in a quiet scenic area. The owners were extremly friendly and had provided tea/coffee/towels etc for a perfect romantic break. There is a pub a 3 minute walk from the barn that offers a very friendly welcome and delicious food. (i advise you take a torch as the lane to and from the pub is not lit). My partner and i enjoyed every moment of our stay and can't wait to return.

“Lovely cottage - excellent location for walking holiday”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2012

Ideal location for walking -right on the 1066 trail. Both local pubs served excellent food and were dog friendly. The cottage was well appointed and was comfortable.
