Discover Brooks Lodge at Chapel Barn - an architect and interior designed award-winning extension of an 18th century flint barn within the South Downs AONB.

Nestling in a valley by the River Ouse with beautiful rural views across East Sussex countryside, Brooks Lodge is situated on a private farm estate on the outskirts of Piddinghoe village.

The property won a Sussex Heritage Award in 2013 shortly after its completion, due to its excellent execution and its dynamic contemporary contrast to the original flint barn. In 2016, 'Quality in Tourism' awarded the property a Four Star Gold Award.

The use of sympathetic but modern materials makes Brooks Lodge an extraordinary dwelling. It blends comfortably in the rural landscape due to the use of traditional materials - flint, slate and bricks.

It is also certainly proof that eco-friendly does not have to mean boring - you name it, this house has it! Its clever design maximises the beautiful rural views, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and stunning terraces.

Guests have mentioned that the property has an air of calm. While the days away in the gorgeous rooms, generously proportioned with relaxing, elegant furniture. The master bedroom has French doors that open onto its own small deck with table and chairs. The deck overlooks the adjoining barn with its courtyard garden and pond. On the first floor, a wall of large folding, sliding doors allows the kitchen to become part of the outside space. The doors open onto a large deck and upper lawn offering amazing possibilities for alfresco dining.

No stone is left unturned… this East Sussex holiday home is well very equipped and the owner's attention to detail is sure to impress. The extra touches include fresh flowers throughout as well as toys, books and games to keep the little ones entertained. A home made cake and a thoughtful welcome hamper also awaits hungry travellers on their arrival.

The South Downs are the perfect place for anyone interested in getting away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Enjoy stunning scenery, long walks and potter around the picturesque nearby villages, and (best of all) total relaxation.

The picture-perfect town of Lewes, a short drive away, is brimming with character and packed full of shops selling local produce and pubs and restaurants with great food. Browse the numerous antique shops, stock up at the Farmer's Market and pay a visit to the stunning castle. Make sure you stop off at Anne of Cleves House, the Tudor birthplace of one of Henry VIII's unlucky wives.

Guests can also ramble on the many public footpaths from the front door, wonderful at any time of the year. Follow the River Ouse, which is just across the road from the property, as it snakes it way across fields and admire the British countryside. Or make for the nearest pub, the Abergavenny Arms, a lovely 30 minute stroll along the riverside.

Alternatively, take a hike down to the coast three miles away, complete with dramatic cliff-top walks and beautiful coastal scenery. A short drive away you'll also find the beautiful Seven Sisters Country Park. Made up of 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, river valley and fields, its perfect for walking, cycling, canoeing - and even a spot of birdwatching. Don't miss the dramatic, breathtaking panoramic scenery at Beachy Head, a 30-minute drive from the house, and well worth a visit. In fact, keen walkers and cyclists are spoilt for choice, with well-managed trails including the South Downs Way and the Cuckoo Trail from Heathfield to Eastbourne.

A trip to fun-filled Brighton is also recommended and Eastbourne is within easy access. The Lavender Line and Bluebell Steam Railways, Drusillas Park at Alfriston, Stanmer Park, the equine events at Hickstead and Plumpton, the Bloomsbury Trail, Glyndebourne Opera House, and a huge selection of gardens and stately homes are all nearby.
