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.
