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.
“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.
“A Napa Valley-style Vineyard on the South Downs” Chosen by The Telegraph as a chic place to stay for some Green Belt glamour this summer.
TIME TO RELAX
Our Flint Barns Dining Room on the ground floor offers a welcoming restaurant and separate cosy lounge and snug, fitted with fireplaces. Outside, guests can relax and enjoy a glass of Sussex Sparkling in our enclosed courtyard or atop of our open bank which overlooks the Vineyard.
Simple, yet comfy, all of our bedrooms have been curated with luxurious mattresses, soft bed linen, local art prints and indulgent body washes to ensure you have a peaceful night’s sleep and a relaxing stay.
Our signature doubles, situated on the ground and first floor, are comfy, modern and perfect for a couple’s getaway. Both rooms feature a writing desk and space for a cot.
Our signature family room, situated on the second floor, is airy with vaulted ceilings and spectacular Vineyard views. This bedroom sleeps up to 4 guests with an en-suite bathroom.
Our large and characterful family room, situated on the second floor, is spacious and airy with spectacular Vineyard views. This bedroom sleeps up to 5 guests with two en-suite shower rooms.
Our Deluxe Double rooms situated on the ground and first floor are spacious and perfectly appointed with your own seating area. Wake up each morning to views of the Vineyard or South Downs countryside.
