Wake up in the heart of an English Vineyard
Award-Winning Sussex Bed & Breakfast
The Flint Barns are unique and historic buildings, located in the Cradle Valley, that lie at the western end of Rathfinny Wine Estate. We believe this is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the South Downs National Park and the rich history of the area where coast meets countryside.
BOOKING WITH CONFIDENCE
If we are forced to close the Flint Barns due to COVID-19, reservations can be transferred or cancelled at no additional charge, subject to our cancellation policy.
“home away from home”
The barns have been lovingly restored with contemporary furnishings to house 10 en-suite bedrooms, offering beautifully appointed “home away from home” accommodation.
