All of the rooms at the Flint Barns are en suite with extra bathrooms situated in the corridors if needed.

The Barns has an outside courtyard and a small grassed area, both are ideal for games.

We offer a flexible catering service, from B&B to full board, with all of the meals prepared and cooked on site. Where possible all our produce is sourced locally, all of the meat coming from a family run butchers in East Dean with seasonal vegetables and eggs coming from a private farm only 5 miles away.

The barns are open throughout the year apart from during harvesting & pruning of the vines which is normally around Oct & Feb-Mar. If you are looking at staying during those times do contact us and we'll let you know if we can accommodate you.
