The builders have gone, the kitchen’s complete, the beds have been made, the furniture company has finally delivered and it’s gradually filling the rooms and we have had our first visitors. All so exciting!
The Flint Barns truly are a ‘home away from home’ – so much so, that I want to move in! Ade, Georgia and I have worked really hard at sticking to our core Rathfinny values whilst fitting out the building that can sleep 46 people. That means we’ve ensured that everything from the fittings and fixtures, the bedding and the décor speak of quality and attention to detail. We are not talking about a 5 star hotel here; these are converted barns for seasonal workers at certain times of the year after all. However we are talking about a place where you can walk the South Downs, amble around Alfriston village and then curl up with a book in front of a fire, play cards, eat simple, home cooked, locally sourced food and sleep in a comfortable bed.
We have 10 rooms, which house a combination of bunk, single and double beds. It’s ideal for walkers, families (perfect to take away the whole extended family!) and groups of friends. Our nephew is getting married in the courtyard next year, hay bales and all, and we’re already getting enquiries. It’s also perfect for educational visits, with so much to do in the area from geography in the Cuckmere Valley, history with visits to Hastings and locally, arts and culture with Charlston and the Towner Gallery nearby. We’re also looking at running writing retreats and other special interest weeks and weekends.
