Saunders Oast Barn: East Sussex

This delightful barn dating from 1860 has a stormy history – in the great hurricane of 1987 it was totally demolished. Rebuilt two years later using many of the original beams, it was reborn into a luxurious and stylish property. For anyone wanting to enjoy a period property, with all the modern conveniences then Saunders Oast Barn is not to be missed.
The stylish entrance hall with oak beam framing, leads to the open plan living room with its cool, contemporary decoration. Comfortable sofas look out over the patio/garden from French doors, perfect for relaxing of an evening in front of the flat screen TV. While the full size snooker table is excellent for keeping everyone amused of an evening or on inclement days.
The large contemporary kitchen, in cool gleaming white, is well-equipped, with a dining table making it ideal for those lazy breakfasts. Or open the door to the patio/garden and enjoy an evening meal, while listening to the tranquil sounds of the countryside.
The bedrooms are all large and luxuriously furnished, with sumptuous linen, soft fluffy, duvets and pillows, and all with exposed oak beams and oak furniture. With a calm and peaceful atmosphere which tempts you to enjoy a lazy morning or early night.
On hot summer days enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside from the patio, which looks out over rolling countryside and is often frequented by the neighbouring chickens and geese! Or enjoy an alfresco meal or BBQ of an evening, while watching the evening sun sink in the sky.
If you can bear to leave this wonderful barn for a while, then historic Hastings with its castle ruins, and the coast are easily reached. While the medieval town of Rye with its impressive Norman church is nearby.

Photographs do not do this barn justice.

The location of the property gives access to many walks to suit all fitness levels. We have 2 golden retrievers who enjoyed the challenge of the ducks, chickens & geese + wild rabbits and the fence was adequate. In this day and age it seemed odd that there was no internet connection and perhaps this could be looked at. It was a pleasure to stay in this property and we would recommend it for an extended family. (We had 6 adults, 3 grandchildren & 2 dogs.) The downstairs bedroom would be well suited to a less nimble person but the access to the shower cubicle is very limited, in fact my husband couldn’t use it! Apart from that - lovely & would like to go again.

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful location. The enclosed garden makes it ideal both for small children and for pets. Lots of parking.

Cottage is absolutely lovely, there is everything in the cottage you need to make your stay comfortable. Bedrooms are a good size and the bonus was that each bedroom has its own bathing facility. The views and walks are great with Rye and Hastings within a short drive away. We tried a different local pub to eat every night and they were all very good. I suppose if I have a complaint (its not a complaint just a suggestion) it would be to have a smaller snooker table in the lounge to give more room for people to sit to watch the television or chat.

This beautifully converted house is incredibly conveniently placed for lovely walks (dog friendly), beaches, villages etc. Internally, it would be difficult to imagine what more could have been done to make life pleasant for visitors and I have never seen such a clean, well-equipped kitchen in any other rental property. I know that some previous visitors have voiced dislike of the large snooker table which they say limits seating in the TV area but we six adults - none of us regulars with a cue - enjoyed using it in the brief intervals of time between being out and about and sharing meals (and cards) around the table in the kitchen. Certainly, there was plenty of very comfortable seating for reading, chatting and snoozing and I think the TV was turned on once for a brief glance at some cricket. We were very lucky with superb weather and the gas BBQ provided gave sterling service. The owner did not hover but was always available if needed. A wonderful break for my family.

Had a fantastic weekend. The barn in beautifully decorated in a lovely setting. Nice touch with the wine and flowers.

The snooker table is an excellent addition to this lovely property. The area is great with some local pubs worth visiting, particularly the Two Sawyers. Book for a quiet relaxing break!

Great. Loads of room. Clean and confortble.
Sept 2011
The property is spacious with excellent bedroom accommodation, in a quiet location close to Hastings and Rye. The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of parking space. However, as non-snooker players we felt that too much lounge space was occupied by the snooker table with the result that seating and relaxing space in the lounge was somewhat cramped for six adults.
Aug 2011
Snooker table brilliant for 2 teenage boys (and Dad remembering his misspent youth), but it does mean that there is no room in the living room area for all guests to relax and watch TV. Curtain area between bedrooms a bit of a drag but we were expecting it.

The barn was exceptional in every way along with the owners concerns for ensuring our stay was uninterrupted. We were greeted on entering with a bottle of wine and flowers. The garden was enclosed and even kept our beagle in! That is a first in all the properties we have stayed in with your company! This is worth mentioning I feel for future dog owners who have the same concern about their dogs escaping from a holiday destination. The property was well equipped, comfortable and clean. We will definitely consider this property again. The owners even supplied an extra fridge as sometimes properties that sleep nine can not have sufficient refrigeration! We had a wonderful time! Probably the best stay ever with your company!

Very nice house and grounds. Helpful owners. Very well kitted kitchen. Seating both in living room and in dining room not so comfortable.
July 2011
Great location. Beautiful accommodation. Loads of things to do around there.
May 2011
A very clean, comfortable barn with wonderful views and friendly owners.
Feb 2011
Lovely spacious barn conversion in superb country location with excellent views. Pool table a novelty although it does dominate the room. Good size kitchen with lots of equipment. Downstairs bedroom accessible for wheelchair although would benefit from handles for getting into the bath etc. Four spacious well-decorated bedrooms upstairs and two good size bathrooms. Easy parking for at least 4 cars. Decent beefeater pub nearby and short drive to Hastings/Rye. Lovely property and would return.
Feb 2011
Very clean and modern accommodation. Lovely ensuites. Beds very comfortable.

In 30 years of using self catering accommodation across the country, we have never found such an excellent property in every way. The property exceeded our expectations and this added greatly to our holiday.
Aug 2010
Everything you needed, new, clean, comfortable and furnished to a high standard.

It is pretty much a Laura Ashly style home. Absolutely beautiful.
Jan 2010
The location. The cleanliness. The amenities. All of it, will definitely go back there. The snooker table was a brilliant idea. It did take up alot of room in the lounge.
Aug 2009
Clean well presented property, photo's and description do not do it justice.

This property was absolutely stunning, the owners have done a wonderful job. The kitchen was kitted out exceptionally well and we had everything we could have needed. The snooker table played an integral part of our Family Olympics over the weekend! Thank you again for a very memorable weekend!
Nov 2008
The Barn was absolutely perfect, it far exceeded our expectations and the six of us had a wonderful holiday. It was extremely well equipped and the snooker was great fun. It is perfectly situated for walking holidays and very handy for Rye.
Sept 2008
The barn was immaculately clean on arrival and everything we needed in the kitchen for our stay seemed to be available - overall an excellent choice.
