Enjoy the cosy warmth and comfort of Oasthouse Loft while looking out at the wonderful views across the wonderful gardens and fields

The space
Look out from the Oasthouse Loft onto spectacular 360 degree views of stunning Sussex countryside. Located on a working farm, the Loft sleeps up to four and is just a 15min drive from the Kent/Sussex coast. Peaceful, beautiful, and super-comfortable in all seasons.

The Loft is a modern conversion with one double bedroom, plus a double sofabed in the open-plan living area. Light and airy with incredible bird's eye views on all sides, the Loft remains snug and cosy thanks to a wood-burning stove alongside central heating. The kitchen is fully equipped and a welcome pack of basic essentials is provided upon arrival.

Explore our farm and the local area on foot, or borrow our two mountain bikes if you'd like to go further afield. Also feel free to use our boules court whenever you like.

You will have access to your own section of garden with table and chairs. There is ample parking. And if you need a washing machine please just ask.

Feel free to join us feeding the animals on the farm. Or, if it's peace and quiet you're after we'll leave you to enjoy your long lie-ins and appreciate the landscape. We live in the house next door so are on hand at all times if you need us.

Northiam is on the Kent/Sussex border and is an area of traditional pastureland, woods and rivers leading down to the nearby South Coast. The area is brimming with spectacular National Trust properties, historic homes and gardens. There is also the East Sussex Steam Railway, the pretty market town of Tenterden, the traditional fishing town of Hastings, the medieval smuggler's town of Rye and the famous 1066 battlefields from the Battle of Hastings.

The Oasthouse Loft is in a fairly remote but beautiful spot so ideally you will need a car to get there.

We are a 20 minute drive from Robertsbridge train station, it's a 1hr 15 minute train journey from London and the nearest airport, Gatwick, is 1hr 25mins away.

Guest access
Guests have access to their own space and the surrounding garden which is quite extensive. There are a number of areas within the garden specially set aside for the exclusive use of our guests.
They are welcome to visit our goats under our supervision to begin with and will find them to be exceptionally beautiful, clean, friendly and interesting.
There is also ample off road parking.

Detailed Access information for The Loft
There is a level parking area for one car, 20 metres from the access stairs.

A very shallow ramp 1.2 metres wide and 2 metres long precedes the access stairs.

Oasthouse Loft is on the upper storey of a two storey building and can be reached via a substantial wooden external staircase with 11 steps 87 cm wide, 26 cm deep and 20 cm high. There are solid banisters on the right hand side all the way up.

The top step has a rise of 22 cm and lands on a platform 100 cm wide and 120 cm long, with a solidly built banister surround and a lockable gate to prevent children falling down the stairs.

The access door is 86 cm wide, 186 cm high and has a small step up 13 cm high.

The interior is on one level with a solid wooden floor and no raised steps in the internal doorways. The bathroom has a tiled floor with a roughened surface to prevent slipping. There is a 26 cm high step into the shower.

The ceiling height is 193 cm in the centre section which is 200 cm wide. The inside of the eves fall from 193 cm to a height of 93 cm over a distance of 158 cm on both sides. No complaints have been received about restricted ceiling height or lack of usable floor space due to the slope of the eves.

The double bed is 193 cm long (6ft 4 inches) and 137 cm wide (4ft 6 inches). The good quality sofa bed is 133 cm wide (4ft 8 inches) and 195 cm (6ft 5 inches) long when erected.

Northiam, United Kingdom

Oasthouse Loft lies within glorious countryside on a small and quiet livestock farm. The country views are exceptional and constantly referred to with high praise by our guests.
There is good access to the surrounding foot paths directly from the farm and there are local pubs accessible with a stiff country walk.
Whatever the season the views are exceptional. Autumn is spectacular with golden leaves and verdant greens bathed in golden autumnal sunlight. Winter visits are made special with glorious views through leafless trees all accessed from a cosy warm heated base.
Spring and summer are exceptional surrounded by a lovely flowering garden and fields with skipping kids goats to entertain.
The are a wide range of interesting destinations reachable by car rather than public transport.

My wife Vanessa and I are farmers with a working farm breeding Boer Goats which are a very special breed imported from South Africa. We also have a holiday let where we can share with our guests the joys of the lovely location we in live in. The views of the local countryside are exquisite with fields and woodland populated by sheep and cattle almost as far as the eye can see. There are also wonderful woodland walks with wild orchids. We greatly enjoy sharing this wonderful situation and are always available to advise guest where they can visit for good food and drink. Our knowledge of pubs and good eating places locally is almost encyclopaedic. Having farmed fruit for most of our lives in the garden of England we decided upon a change and set up a stud farm breeding a rare breed of South African Boer Goats. The goats are extremely friendly and picturesque. We are always happy to introduce our guests to these lovely animals. We also have another pretty and very old cottage to let in nearby Rye called Landgate Cottage. We are always accompanied by our friendly terriers who delight in meeting our guests and their children.
