  • “This is the second time we have stayed at the Cowshed.”

    Great holiday accommodation it has everything you would need. Clean, comfortable, peaceful, lovely views and not far from a good pub for food and places of interest to visit. The owners, Tim and Cath, are very helpful. We are already planning our third visit.

The property

Westfield 1.2 miles.

This inviting, detached barn conversion is set in a lovely rural spot down a quiet country lane near to the village of Westfield.

Families can come together and enjoy a stay in this wonderful holiday home, with easy access to the surrounding High Weald AONB and the stunning coastline.

The open-plan living area has two sofas where you can spend your evenings relaxing and unwinding in front of the Smart TV, whilst the dining area makes a perfect social space for you to plan your holiday activities.

The kitchen boasts a range of integrated appliances, plus a contemporary quartz worktop to add further style.

The bedrooms are well-presented with double beds and house plenty of space for your personal belongings.

Enjoy a soak in the bathroom to complete your day or wake up to a refreshing shower in the morning.

Appreciate a moment in the sun in the large garden before enjoying an alfresco meal whilst watching the sun set over the hills.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there’s so much wonderful scenery to explore, including nature reserves, sandstone cliffs and plenty of routes for walking and cycling with picnic areas if you fancy a spot of lunch.

The medieval town of Rye is close by as are the historic towns of Battle and Hastings, divided by only a few miles and joined together in 1066 history.

Take a journey back in time and explore Battle Abbey, the site of the Battle of Hastings or discover Hastings Castle, an 11th century Norman ruin, or explore the series of hidden underground caverns with a number of interactive displays at Smugglers Adventure.

Alternatively, why not spend an afternoon relaxing on Hastings Beach, swimming in the clear waters?

A holiday at The Cowshed promises a getaway packed with countryside and coastal delights.

About the location


Battle 5 miles; Hastings 6 miles; Rye 9 miles.

Westfield is a thriving village situated only six miles inland of Hastings. With excellent access to other parts of Sussex and Kent, it’s a perfect choice for a base whilst exploring this part of the South Coast. Maplehurst Wood, on the outskirts of the village, offers approximately 78 acres of ancient woodland, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, it's home to many different species of breeding birds, including kestrel, tawny owl, woodpecker and nuthatch. For those wishing for long country walks, relaxed days spent fishing, or golf, Westfield is a wonderful option. Dating back to Doomsday times, Westfield, then known as Westewelle, is still one of the largest villages in the area, and even has its own winery - Carr Taylor Vineyards, a popular tourist attraction with vineyard walks, tours and wine tasting. There’s also a village shop, newsagents, butcher, delicatessen, hairdressers and a pub called The New Inn, serving excellent food. For fine dining, The Wild Mushroom Restaurant is a good choice. With Hastings just six miles away, you can enjoy a swim in the sea, beachcombing along the shore or clambering over castle ruins. For those wishing to wander around battlements or sample a Sussex cream tea, then make your way to Battle, a short drive to the west. With the social history museum of Yesterday's World allowing a walk through time, passing quaint shops with cobbled streets, Battle is appealing at any time of year, whilst Westfield provides a wonderful base.
