  • Boreham Bridge Barn, SussexInstant Book Overlay Image
    This detached barn conversion is on a main road which is busy at certain times of the day, adjacent to the owner’s home, is ideally placed for accessing the 1066 Country Walk, which includes the Norman’s landing site at Pevensey, the battle site and the castles at Pevensey and Herstmonceux. From Pevensey Castle, there are further links to the South Downs Way. Boreham Bridge Barn resides in its own historical setting close to Battle, the site was excavated in 2008 and timbers were discovered which were radio carbon dated to 660-830AD, suggesting a mid to late Saxon jetty was present, with the coastline being much further inland than it is today. As a result, an archaeological survey was carried out and several fired clay pieces of East Sussex ware, probably from a kiln or bread oven, were discovered along with fragments of storage vessels dating to early–mid Iron Age, and flint tools dating back to the Bronze Age. Most of these pieces you can see on display in the barn.
    Explore the rolling countryside and take a ride on the Kent and Sussex steam railway, which can take you to the fairytale moated castle at Bodiam. Enjoy the coast at Hastings with its fishing fleet, pier and iconic net huts. Camber Sands offers miles of golden sand dunes and an opportunity to polish up your kite surfing skills, and Eastbourne at the foot of the South Downs also makes for a great day out. From Battle, there are good train links into London if you fancy a spot of sightseeing. Beach 8 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
